Anybody feeling any symptoms yet? - Page 3

post #41 of 58
Ugh, insomnia last night. Woke up at 3:45 and couldn't get back to sleep for over an hour. I got up pretty quickly and surfed the internet. Feeling ok now, but waiting for the fatigue bomb to drop on me any time.

I haven't really had any symptoms other than cramping and extra tiredness. I think I *knew* I was pregnant when I ate three bowls of fruit loops in one sitting. Cold cereal was my favorite in my last pregnancy.

What is it about fruit loops? When I was pg last time, I think I ate only fruit loops for the entire first tri -- like breakfast, lunch, dinner.

I'm planning on better eating this time around -- but we'll see how that pans out once the ms really kicks in....

Fruit loops sound realllllly good right now! I might have to buy some.

Fruit Loops sound yucky to me! So does anything sweet, except the occasional Mexican Coke--the kind in the glass bottle, no corn syrup. I'm craving savory, spicy, and high protein foods right now. I've always had a sugar aversion during pregnancy, though.

I didn't care what kind of cereal I ate last time. Cheerios, granola...I would even take the last bits in the almost empty boses and put them all in one bowl.

the only reason i tested last night was because of the gut wrenching, everything makes me feel like hurling, nausea i've had the last 3 days.

Just call me the couch blob. All I do is watch instant Netflix movies--documentaries about Buddhism to calm my morning sickness ravaged brain and body. My kids eat Luna bars and bagels all day, along with dried fruit--all stuff they can pilfer from the pantry.

I watch those movies to calm my mind that only wants to focus on how tired or nauseated I feel.

I try to keep stuffing food in me, usually carbs, in an attempt to keep the sickness at bay, but I am only at 6 weeks today, which is usually the START of morning sickness and I know how bad it can get--that's what depresses me--the thought of how it can get worse and worse over the NEXT 6 WEEKS-- and that also draws me toward the desire for calm and peace--which is mostly impossible when you have a 5yo and a 2yo- boys- running around. My mother graciously took the kids out shopping today (a very Buddhist activity ) during which time I drew and meditated, which was like a vacation because finding time to meditate is few and far between, not like I ever did it *before*, when I had the time! lol But suddenly I'm craving it and wanting to take the fast route to peace in order to escape the feeling of being trapped in nausea! (all selfish reasons, but that's natural and at least it's *something* opening that part of me!)

Cravings... the weird thing about cravings is... mostly all food repulses, but then occasionally a germ of an idea about a flavor or food quality will sprout and that develops into a craving... which is something to look forward to, fulfilling that craving... it's best to be specific about the craving... sometimes I search for it... maybe based on past pregnancies... thai food, fresh summer rolls from the first... the perfect burrito with plenty of lettuce and pico de gallo, drenched in hot sauce from the second...but if it's too vague then I can't fulfill it and am left with a pseudo feeling of satiation... but when the opportunity to fulfill a craving arises and all the pieces fall into place, the result is a harmonious remedy... all the senses unite and thank the universe for that moment of indulgence... but then, the strange part is... more often than not, after the craving is filled, the object of desire becomes the object of repulsion, often inciting the same feelings of nausea that it had been the promised rectifier of! Such is the nature of the morning sickness brain!

Last night at the drop of the hat I felt HORRIBLE...I wasnt going to throw up...I just ran out of energy and my blood sugars dropped. I took 1 bite of a homemade hamburger and I popped right up and was fine. SO weird how it can do that! I woke up this morning with a HORRIBLEY sore throat and it hurts SO BAD to swallow or even talk. I get a cold everytime I get pg. Darnit! I'm so tired...I could sleep all day. And the "get off of me...dont touch me" has already started...but, it could be due to this TX 100+degree weather we are having rght now. I feel like I always have a fever! LOL

are, uh, (tmi alert) diarrhea and horrible gas usually an early symptom of pregnancy? I didn't have that with my last pregnancy. I thought constipation was a lot more common. everything seems to cause awful churning when it hits my stomach, then rushes back out the other end shortly there after. I've mostly been eating pretzels the last 3 days because nothing else is at all appealing.

Does morning sickness make you pissy? I am so snippy and pissy and negative toward the world! Revolted by everything!

OMG!! The cramping! I remember from last time I felt really crampy- like AF was coming but then it didn't. This time the cramping is worse- so much worse- like if I wasn't pg I would totally take advil. And I don't usually have to take anything w/ normal AF only once in a great while but man its not comfortable. (no spotting or anything, pretty sure its normal) plus I'm SO bloated and gassy and I'm not pooping good. (did I just cross into TMI? sorry!!) anyway, sent DH to store for colace and tylenol.

anyone know if the crampy, uterine stretching thing tends to get worse with each pregnancy?

Right now I'm living off of Froot Loops, Ginger Ale, potato chips 50 mg of b6 and 1/2 Unisom at night.

Before that, I was nauseated (on the verge of vomit) for the entire day.
I have been very groggy though. Not sure if it's the Unisom or just pregnancy related. I have NO energy. Shower? Right.

I'm 5 weeks and 3 days today and I hardly feel anything. My nipples are really sore while nursing dd, bloating after eating, mild mid day tiredness, slightly more hungry than usual, and mild crankiness... ok that sounds like a lot but I honestly don't feel pregnant and it is starting to worry me. With my first, I was sick almost immediately. I had a lot of trouble swallowing pills and brushing my teeth because I had a very sensitive gag reflex. I'm terrified of miscarriage. Please, someone calm me down.

@ sarahkristin, this won't help much but I am in the exact same boat, about 5.5. weeks and I barely feel anything. I am just as worried about m/c (and I had one before and didn't feel very pregnant). On the other hand, I had a pretty easy pregnancy with my DD and I can't remember when I really started feeling pregnant--not right away, I don't think. I've been reading lots of stories of women who have no symptoms and then discover that they're 3, 4. 6, 8 months along (!) and comforting myself that way. (Check this out--unbelievable: http://allnurses.com/ob-gyn-nursing/...nt-109586.html and all the comments tell similar stories.)

I have just told myself that I can't do anything about it anyway, so I might as well just enjoy the lack of nausea and wait for the u/s in a few weeks. I am worried about a m/c too, but trying to be optimistic.

I'm with you two! M/C in February at 4.5 weeks with very little symptoms. I'm now 5wks2days and only symptom is really tender bbs. I was having a lot of heartburn last week, but haven't been feeling any this week. When I got pregnant with DS (a happy surprise) I didn't even know I was pregnant till one day at around 7 weeks I was brushing my teeth and vomited and that was the start of 3 months of MISERY. So I'm hoping it will start in a couple of weeks. But I'd give anything to be miserable like that again...just for reassurance!

My symptoms have been pretty muted, aside from peeing every 10 minutes. I've got some breast tenderness now, but that's new. I had quite a bit of cramping, but my uterus cramps at a sneeze. I cramped for weeks during my last pregnancy.

I was worried, but betas were normal and they saw a sac on the ultrasound. My progesterone was at the low end of normal, which might explain it--if supplementation gives you crazy symptoms, maybe low gives you mild ones!
