The First Trimester Symptoms Thread

post #1 of 119
Thread Starter 
what symptoms are you having?

I'm having irritability and crampy-ness. Along with crying and hunger.

Angery is my Number 1 though.

Hungry!!

I am definitely having an increase in appetite. I am also nursing my two kids, so I think that has a lot to do with it. I'm having some slight crampiness here and there, but nothing really uncomfortable. Also, I'm tired a lot more. I feel like I've taken some night-time allergy medicine or something.

My appetite has me a little worried. I am not really overweight, but I have gained about 30 pounds with each of my previous pregnancies, and I already weigh about 18 pounds more than I did before I got pregnant with my first. I was actually planning on losing 20 pounds before the end of the year (at which time I was planning on getting pregnant). This was obviously a surprise.

Just being sleepy. I seem to nap everyday now.

momma2libby, I see that you have a libby, too! My Libby is actually Elizabeth, but we have celled her Libby since she was born.

My Libby is an Elizabeth, too. Elizabeth Ruth. Do other people sing "Libby Libby Libby on the Label Label Label" to your Libby? I guess I didn't know that there was a little jingle for Libby canned goods. Not that I would change things but if one more person sings that song....

Ditto the napping. I'm a napper to begin with, so it's probably not a huge change. It's just become a daily occurence instead of a weekly one.

I've had cramping, too. Had no idea that was a symptom. I thought it was my dinner...lol.

Oh, yeah, and my skin looks like I'm about 16. Lots of tiny pimples, and my eczema (around my hairline) is worse than ever. May be TMI, but we're talking symptoms, right?

And nipples are so sore.

Okay, I think that's it...lol

Hunger, my fuse is shorter and the explosion is larger

lack of patience, hunger hunger, grumpyness

And today I was nausiated...

Fatigue. Bone crushing fatigue. And a heightened sense of smell- not good with one still in diapers.

May I add morning sickness? Woke up 1/2 hr ago with awful nausea. Not getting sick, just feels like I'm going to. (my mom said that's how she was with me)

Is it normal to wake up in the middle of the night with m/s? I thought it would at least be limited to normal waking hours...lol

I'm okay, though. Cook, little Bean, cook.

ok I was nausiated today. twice. And twice I took b6 and it helped.

And one other tmi symptom...can we talk about sex here? if not I guess this can be deleted but I mean I don't see why this can't be a symptom of pregnancy

TMI WARNING:


We haven't had sex since like the time right after ovulation so before implantation, so today was the first "pregnant" sex. John said to me at the begining "WOAH!!! you are REALLY hot in there! DANG!" and after he said, "man that was too hot! my penis is burning"! LOL!

I KNEW that I"d been super duper hot lately, but not enough for him to tell the difference! LOL!! :

That's interesting. We also haven't dtd since just post-O. Come to think of it, very unusual for us. Will definitely have to see if DH notices anything...lol

btw, thanks for the b6 tip. I'll try that in the morning.

My biggest symptom has been dreaming. I don't usually remember my dreams--I'll remember a couple a year, if I'm lucky. This week I've awoken with my dreams remembered 6 nights in a row!

I've also been exhausted. I was really exhausted with my first pregnancy, too, and since I'm a teacher, I was really hoping to time the first trimester to coincide with summer vacation so that at least I could take naps!

My sense of smell has been somewhat heightened, and my sense of taste has been just off. There's been a little nausea and cramping, but not too much. I didn't have any morning sickness with DD, so I'm hoping that I'll be that lucky a second time around.

I hear ya! I teach too, and with a summer schedule, I have been pretty free to nap. Love it!

Oh, that song! Everyone sang it over and over again when Libby was born. My dh went to the store with my mom (I have birthed both of my babies at my parent's house and then we have stayed there for about a week; I had ds in their jacuzzi tub) and he saw a Libby's can, and he said, "wow, look!" and that began it all. We obviously didn't know there was a Libby's brand, either. It happens less frequently now, but it still happens.

Everyone else has mentioned some symptoms that I forgot. I was queasy for a few days earlier in the week, but I have felt a little better lately, hope that is not a bad thing. My sense of smell has heightened as well.

Oh, and who mentioned the sex? Was that you, Danielle? Anyway, dh and I haven't dtd since I found out I was pregnant, but we did after I conceived and before I knew I was pregnant. He didn't mention anything about me being hotter down there, but I could definitely tell that it was different. I actualy had to ask him to stop for a minute because it just felt so different. Not painful, just felt like there was something else down there. This shows how unaware I was (or in denial), because looking back I felt the very same thing before I had a positive test with my dd. This time I thought it was all just gearing up for AF to start.

Stacey, I've been dreaming crazy stuff too...every night even. I started dreaming crazy stuff even before my bfp.
i've also been incredibly thirsty and since i've been drinking so much h2o i have to go pee a lot, even during the night.

On Tuesday night, I woke up just an hour after going to sleep in a total anxiety dream. I don't remember what it was, but I was on my back, head in the middle of the bed near DH's belly, my legs hanging over the side of the bed, and I was pushing my hands up in the air... I only remember the feeling of being crushed. Good grief, do you think I'm stressed??? Thankfully last night, I just had silly dreams about being pregnant with my best friend and my bikini not fitting because my boobs had gotten too big.

Other "symptoms," if that's what they are....

~ An awful mood
~ Occasional queasiness, but only for a moment or two
~ My legs were burning doing yoga, which isn't normal for me

My last pregnancy, I had sore boobs & stretching/cramping in my uterus right away, and I have neither now. So, I'm trying not to worry, I know "every pregnancy is different," but I still would feel better if I felt worse! (kidding.. sort of!)

I hear ya, Lucy. I welcome every symptom, even the icky ones.

Also, I had dreams of getting a BFP two nights in a row right before we actually got our BFP. Is it possible I already knew somehow?
post #20 of 119
Starving! It is crazy. And I am up about 7 pounds from where I should be, so the last thing I need is to gain abunch of weight in the first tri.

I am also having crazy vivid dreams. Especially about ex bf's. Awesome, not.
