Symptoms so far? - Page 4

post #61 of 102
Today is exactly 6 weeks for me and I have:

- super tender breasts (tough for a stomach sleeper!)
- Big time food aversions and cravings (I was vegan until last week when I inhaled 3 hard boiled eggs in the whole foods parking lot)
- pinching in the uterus area
- heaviness or an "awareness" of my uterus
- Slight nausea which got way worse today
- occasional darkish pee accompanied by dark discharge (TMI, sorry)
- lower back pain (this has let up significantly, pretty much gone now)
- OH and the biggest symptom of all that has stayed with me since I got my BFP, FATIGUE! Totally tired every day. Been going to bed early and getting up late and napping on my breaks at work.

KarenMT that sucks! I think I only actually threw up a couple of times during my last pregnancy, you poor thing!! you're feeling a little better today. Does eating protein help?

Does anyone else find that they'll go long periods where the queasiness all but disappears? After theose first few days earlier this week where it was more constant I'll now go most of the day feeling ok -if just a little more tired. Gotta love the first tri where you spend all of your time either feeling sick or worrying when you don't.

Yep. I had bouts of nausea last week but barely any nausea this week. I'm hoping it isn't the calm before the storm.

I found this with my last pregnancy - I would have a couple of icky days, then a day or two of feeling half decent, then back again. This time...nope. It set in last weekend (just before I hit 6 weeks) and now it's hanging on constantly. I even feel ill when I wake up at night...I don't remember that from previous pregnancies at all. Blech! I have never vomited from nausea in pregnancy, so I'm hoping that holds true this time...nonetheless, I am already really tired of feeling so ick!

Other than that, I feel like I am getting way to little sleep, even though I go to bed with my kids at 8:30. And my back is already giving me signs that I need to be careful - my foot was buzzing yesterday (it was SO odd!), and some pain in my bum that I think is an irritated sciatic nerve from hauling 70 pounds of kid in a wagon uphill to DS's bus stop. I had a really nasty back injury last pregnancy that I do not want to repeat. I have an osteopath appointment on Tuesday (how handy that I booked it before I was even pregnant!) that I am counting down to

Yes, I know! On one hand, I love that I'm feeling fine, but on the other, I get kinda excited when I do get really tired or queasy. It makes me like I am really pregnant and this just isn't in my head and that maybe this will be OK.

Ahhh, I was just thinking about this! I keep grabbing my boobs to make sure they still hurt. When I have few symptoms, I get worried, but when I feel icky, I just complain all the time!

So guys, I think my insanity is setting in. I started crying yesterday, because DH had already eaten when he picked me up from work, and I wanted to go to Panera Bread. So he took me anyway. Today, I just feel like crying at random times, once, because I got a nasty note from a parent (I teach), and two, because I'm worried about not having symptoms today. Which is funny, because I guess that would be a symptom! Ha, yeah, I'm becoming insane...

Still puking. Ugh. I start throwing up at 5am, and I don't really stop until noon or 1. At my appt. on Monday, I think I'm going to have to ask my OB for anti-morning sickness medicine. I literally cannot keep anything down in the morning, and then I get sick and headaches from super low blood sugar! Can't win for losing.

Other than that, my breasts are HUGE and sore. I'm also a tummy sleeper, so that is not boding well for me at night.

Anyone else having bad post-nasal drip?

I would cry too if I had my heart set on Panera bread and that was jeopardized I love their Sierra Turkey sandwich. I actually had one tuesday and aside from carne asada, it has been the yummiest thing Ive eaten since I found out I was pregnant. I want another one now.

kmb, have you tried keeping something high in protein next to your bed and setting an alarm for 3 or 4 to eat it before the sickness hits. I did this my first pregnancy. Yogurt and a handfull of nuts was easy for me to eat really quick and go back to sleep. It really helped. Sorry you are so sick. Have you tried the B6/ Unisom combo?

Unfortunately, I am having quite a time also keeping my supplements down. Luckily, I seem to be ok at night, and I do take a B-complex supplement along with everything else.

I will definitely try the yogurt and nuts idea. Thanks!

I know yogurt is hard to keep by the bed.. lol. I used an insulated lunch bag.. with a recharge some nights and water some nights.. Cold liquid felt so good to me when I was feeling nauseous last time.

Another one here for crying. I just bawled like a baby during a TV viewing of Evan Almighty. When he decided to stand up and admit he was building an ark for God on TV I thought about how brave he was and just BAWLED. I'm not even religious!

The crying thing is getting out of hand.

I watched an episode of Hoarders yesterday on netflix and balled almost the entire 30 minutes. Between sobs I kept telling DH that it was just so sad that life was often so messy.

Oh, you guys make me feel sane again! Or at least we're all crazy together...

Today was the worst yet. Went on a walk with my boss around noon and thought I was going to have to stop and yack beside the sidewalk I told her earlier this week, so at least I get some sympathy!

Checking in crazy here. Hyper irritability, emotional, nauseated AND hungry at the same time, weird cravings (I'm about to cook a chicken breast at 9PM and sautee some onions and put ketchup on it...)

Irritability seems to be centered toward my poor children (3 and 19m) and my mother. More my mother. Everytime she texts me or posts something to my facebook or calls I just want to scream, "SHUT UP!"
post #75 of 102
Hoarder's on Netflix? As soon as I'm read this I put it on my instant queue, and I'm watching it right now. I find that show so intriguing. I can't look away...

You are definitely not alone on this one. Ive spent the last year of my life in intense therapy to deal with the realities of both my Mother and MIL. She (my mom) was such a ray of sunshine last pregnancy..NOT... and now that we have a kid she was coming to visit every 6-8 weeks and generally driving me bonkers. Calling to talk.. wants some fairytale type relationship with me and my daughter that she put no actual effort into cultivating in our lives. She was barely emotionally, or heck, even physically available to me every 6-8 weeks when I was a young child.. and I was her child. It's all so saccharine and fake.. and Im done with it. But I have to have the "talk".. where I tell her, hey, you cant come more then twice a year, because you dont feel safe to be in my life, in my home.. Of course, I care that it will hurt her.. because, as always life is complex.. and I understand the hurts she carries.. but I dont care how she responds to it. It doesnt change anything. And it will be nice to finally feel authentic. She can skype with the kids or something.

Anyway, it's making me have bizzarre pregnancy dreams..so it's time.. and now, I cant get the woman to return my calls. Hah.

, I cant either.. reality tv is a totally weird thing. To be able to peer into people's lives this way..

My updated list of symptoms-- dizziness, passed out once, insomnia, moderate nausea (yep it finally kicked in), and muscle cramps. Anyone else have this? My muscles seize up for no apparent reason and the soreness persists a long time. I had this really severely with one other pregnancy.

MamaChef that is going to be a hard conversation. Good luck. I have a crazy mom as well; my break with her happened around my wedding. Lucky in one way to get it out of the way before I had kids, but, well, let's just say I don't look at my wedding photos even still, and I've been married for 11 years.

Actually on topic - I was feeling pretty icky yesterday, but there's been a mild bug floating around the house, so I'm hoping that was it. My body temp is off, so I'm hot, then cold, then hot again. I'm keeping a close rein on my temper, but it's taking more effort than usual. I'm STILL dizzy, darn it, and almost passed out in the kitchen the other night. I have chronically low blood pressure, and it's even worse right now, so I have to be careful getting up or bending over. I'm hungry very often and trying to get in good protein snacks.

My degree is in psychology - I love the hoarding shows! They are really sad, but it is encouraging that many of those people start getting the help they need because of the show. It was just in the news recently that a woman was killed by her pile of stuff - I think it was in Arizona? They didn't find her for several weeks, and that was even USING cadaver smelling dogs.
