post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I was looking through my old pregnancy blog for symptom comparison and I found this cute weekly update that I used to do. I thought it would be fun for us to start it here too! What do you guys think? Wanna do this weekly? I'll even volunteer to start the thread every week, say, on Mondays, you think?

1.) How far along are you?

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing?

3.) How are you feeling?

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go?

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)?

6.) Any questions you want to ask?

7.) Any belly pics from this week?

8.) Any food cravings?

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week!

I'll even start.

1.) How far along are you? 6w6d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? Nausea and exhaustion if I don't eat regularly, horrible nipple pain when dd latches on, hungry all the time but no desire to eat

3.) How are you feeling? Surprisingly great! I'm so thrilled to be pregnant and that definitely overshadows any symptoms I have.

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? Still haven't seen a doctor or midwife. I should probably start interviewing midwives soon. I didn't start seeing a midwife with my first until about 13 weeks, so I'm really not in a hurry.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? Not really. We've been talking about moving, but haven't set anything in stone yet. Kinda causes a little stress and anxiety, but I just try not to think about it.

6.) Any questions you want to ask? Will this nipple pain go away or am I doomed to have another 8 months of it?

7.) Any belly pics from this week? I took one especially for this post!

8.) Any food cravings? Oddly enough, pickles. So cliche! My hubby bought these awesome pickles imported from Israel. They are the only ones we can find that don't have high fructose corn syrup and /or sodium benzoate in them. Oh... and hummus! Mmmmmm.

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! Being pregnant! Hehe. Also, I just found out that the baby is the size of a blueberry right now. That is pretty cool!

1.) How far along are you? 5w3d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? Exhaustion, grumpiness, sore bb's, tenderness in belly, a HUGE belly, and slight to moderate almost constant nausea.

3.) How are you feeling? Not great. This time of late (late afternoon) is the worst. Mornings are good.

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? I see the intake nurse at my OB's office tomorrow morning!

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? Not really. We started back with our homeschool work and activities this week. I'm tired.

6.) Any questions you want to ask? Any advice on dealing with feeling like crud and having 3 kids?? lol

7.) Any belly pics from this week? Not yet!

8.) Any food cravings? I have more aversions than anything right now. Everything sounds gross except for things like cheese and crackers, sweet potato fries, etc. Bland things.

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! I'm excited about going to my OB's office tomorrow! I love them!!!

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? neusea, fatique, backache, sore breasts.

3.) How are you feeling? Tired and queasy! But thrilled to be feeling that way!

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go?

I got the results from Friday's beta today: 46 at 10 dpo. That's a really solid number for that early, so I'm happy. I won't have a repeat beta until next Thursday, my OB likes people to have a beta over 1000 before she does an initial appointment.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? Not much. DD is starting a new preschool, but not until next month.

6.) Any questions you want to ask? nope

7.) Any belly pics from this week? I'll start belly shots after I've seen a heartbeat

8.) Any food cravings? Guacomole with maple syrup mixed it. I love it!

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week!
I had a chem last month, that ended at 4 weeks exactly, so I'm officially past that and my pregnancy tests are showing really strong lines!!!!

1.) How far along are you? 7 weeks, 4 days.

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? Nausea only when I don't eat.

3.) How are you feeling? Nauseous when I don't eat. ha.

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? no, 1st appointment is this thursday!

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? Nope, just hate my job!

7.) Any belly pics from this week? I posted one at 6w5d and will post another one once someone else starts!!!

8.) Any food cravings? No, but I've been trying a lot of different things, stuff I probably never would've tried before.

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! Some people at work said "OH MY GOSH, are you pregnant?" when they saw my belly. It wasn't even after I ate. I have quite a round bump going, but everything I've read says it's too early. It doesn't feel bloated, it never goes away.

1.) How far along are you? 5w2d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? swollen feet and fatigue. nausea if I don't eat. my face is really broken out.

3.) How are you feeling? frustrated about not knowing whether or not we will have to move before we have this baby.

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? None, I haven't had a Doc. app. yet. I'm waiting to hear back from two midwives, but it's looking like i'll have to go back to the hospital for prenatal care.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? ds's 2nd birthday is coming up on the 23rd and we're having a party the day before. I'm trying to get everything ready for that.

post #10 of 34
I'll bite!

1.) How far along are you? 6w2d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? Lack of energy, very mild nausea, inability to eat as much in one sitting as I did previously, burpy

3.) How are you feeling? Tired and lazy

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? We interviewed a midwife and I just didn't click with her. I think she is a good midwive but not my style. So we're moving on. We only have one of two m/ws to choose from for a vbac at this particular hospital (where we really want to be) so I'm hoping next week's meet-n-greet will click.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? Nothing in particular, just enjoying life as a family!

6.) Any questions you want to ask? There was one earlier that I have forgotten...let me think...oh, what do you gals do for your energy level? I feel like I get a fair amount of protein but could probably use more (more toward the bradley diet). Maybe drinking more water. I might get 3 tall glasses a day.

7.) Any belly pics from this week? Nope . I'll be too shy to post one for a while

8.) Any food cravings? I haven't really been wanting rich sweets too much, thankfully. I hope the weight gain is less this time (last time was 50lb! 20 of that was unnecessarily in the 1st tri...)

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week!
To be honest, nothing favorite so far. I do really look forward to feeling the baby and hearing his/her heartbeat later on. I just feel so lazy and slothful lol. Thankfully 15mo DS plays very well near me but on his own.

I actually did have some brown tinged CM this time, around 5 weeks and a couple of days, but did not with my first. So it seems like it may or may not happen.

How are you with getting some nourishing food a bit after lunch? I start to feel more nauseaus in the afternoon and realize I need a snack that sticks (like yogurt or half a pbj sandwich).
post #13 of 34
1.) How far along are you? 7w5d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? Tired all the time, nauseous/queasy especially when hungry, lightheadedness when I stand up too fast, intense vivid dreams, difficultly sleeping, bowel stuff

3.) How are you feeling? Not too fantastic. Now awful, but not particularly great.

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? None. First appt on the 30th with midwife.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? Nothing for a change. We just need to wrap up this basement reno. And get our kids ready for school, or rather, decide which school our younger one will go to for grade 8. And get the house re-roofed. Um, okay, there's some stuff going on.

6.) Any questions you want to ask? Nope.

7.) Any belly pics from this week? Not yet!

8.) Any food cravings? I don't want anything at all until you put it in front of me or I see a recipe. There's unfortunately no joy in cooking in my house for me...and we're foodies. Mostly, it's all about aversion right now.

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! That I'm one week closer to being out of the first trimester!

7.) Any belly pics from this week? too early to be showing, so no! lol

1.) How far along are you? 6w 2d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? nausea, stronger in the evening, getting up in the middle of the night to pee..ughhh. Aversion to nursing my nurslings. I just dont want to nurse right now, and i feel really guilty about that.

3.) How are you feeling? tired and exhausted ready to wean. Nausea is really setting in.

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? I'm still not sure who or where or what i'm going to do for prenatal care. I may do a unassisted pregnancy...but i would like a u/s soon to see how many nino's are cooking.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? My oldest kids just left to go back to NC for school. I miss them soooooooooo much. My hubby is out of the country for business, my grandmother is suffering with cancer. Got alot going on.

post #17 of 34
1.) How far along are you? 5w1d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? soooo tired, very mild nausea in the afternoon

3.) How are you feeling? I feel like I am being really impatient with my son lately. I think it is because I'm so tired, but I feel bad!

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? Nope...haven't called my midwife yet. I am thinking I'll probably call next week, but doubt I'll be seen until I'm at least 8-10 weeks.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? I interviewed for a part time job (2 days a week) as a temporary SLP with a local school district last week. I am having mixed feelings about whether or not I should accept the job or not---knowing that morning sickness is looming on the horizon, plus the guilt (mostly hormone driven) about leaving my son 2 days a week (he would be staying with a close friend...).

6.) Any questions you want to ask? nope

7.) Any belly pics from this week? not yet!

8.) Any food cravings? chocolate, but that's nothing new

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! I taught my son to point to my belly when I say "where's the baby?"

1.) How far along are you? 5w3d

2.) What symptoms are you experiencing? Tired. Soooo tired. Feel sort of draggy all day, go to bed at 9pm and still feel tired when I get up in the morning. My boobs are a little sore. I'm more irritable than usual, but I think that's because I'm tired. I'm starting to feel a little nausea, but not much just yet. And I'm having crazy dreams.

3.) How are you feeling? Excited, anxious, still really surprised.

4.) Any Dr. appointments/ultrasounds/tests this past week and how did they go? Nothing yet. I have an initial appointment in about a month.

5.) Anything big happening in your personal life (moving, work related, family, etc.)? DD is starting back to preschool soon. I'm very involved in her school, so I'll have a lot to do in the next few weeks, and then it will settle down.

6.) Any questions you want to ask? Where can I get the best deals on maternity clothes?

7.) Any belly pics from this week? No way!

8.) Any food cravings? No cravings. I've noticed I'm less interested in sweets, which can only be a good thing.

9.) Tell us your favorite thing about your pregnancy this week! Just happy to be pregnant!

Nothing yet. I think this is the "boring" part of pregnancy. However, I'm getting pretty good about telling white lies. So many people have asked "When's the next one due?"
