Hey EG... I haven't had much m/s but feel like crap yesterday and today... think I'm getting some kind of hormone blast that has my head throbbing for like 24 hrs plus at this point!

Hope you feel better soon!

I went to a work conference at the end of last week and let's just say everyone I work with now knows including my boss. It was awful. I was throwing up the entire time.

8 weeks today! my first MW appt is next week!

i had a horrible migraine that landed me in bed saturday night around 10pm until this morning. i laid in bed all day yesterday getting up only to throw up (or dry heave) and to open the door for the pizza delivery guy around 9pm last night. this morning, my headache is gone YAY but i am still experiencing morning sickness.

nothing is appetizing. i feel like throwing up about an hour after i eat every time i eat. i constantly have a nasty taste in my mouth and am always brushing my teeth (which induces gagging).

Nausea seems to be less frequent for me, although I sill have my moments. I do think I'm getting a little more energy. Still tired but not dead tired. Upping my thyroid supplement (after a low blood test) may have helped with that too!

Today though, I came home from work. I think this may be the third time this pregnancy. (There's been other complicating issues too, but it's easier to blame the pregnancy.) Just for the record I'm not the type of person to miss work. Previously I missed one day in five years and that was because I was in the hospital with pneumonia. Today, I feel like I'm going to pass out--very dizzy and spacey. I've had de ja vu like crazy all day too. It started in the middle of the night last night. Weird. I called my DH to pick me up because I couldn't drive. Fortunately I'm my own boss, so I don't have to worry about my job, but I do worry about employee moral and setting a bad example. I really shouldn't be working today, but I have issues accepting that!

That sucks, nixnc! I know how you feel though. My sister lives in Wilmington.

With fingers crossed I can say that I think I'm finally turning a bit of a corner with the constant nausea. Last week I stopped taking my ginger/B6 pills & yesterday I felt hungry before feeling nautious for the first time.
This morning I'm all stuffed up & achey though so out with the barfing & in with a cold. Good times.

The Nausea comes and goes in waves but hasn't been nearly as bad as my last pregnancies. I am still tired and can't really eat. I actually took at nap a 8:30 this morning! I finally went out and bought a few maternity shirts this weekend b/c I sold everything last pregnancy and I know I am going to need them in another 2 weeks probably.

I'm 11w1d, and my nausea is still hanging around, some days worse than others. I just have NO appetite though. Even when I'm feeling good not much sounds good to eat. I've also had a few headaches here and there, not severe but annoying.
post #10 of 90
I was so worried, because I'd been sick-sick-sick for WEEKS, with exhaustion to boot. I'd get home and pass out on the couch. My husband usually gets home about 20 minutes later than me, and 9 times out of 10 he'd find me asleep with a bag of tortilla chips next to me.

Anyhow, this past weekend was our 1 year anniversary, and we'd long been planning how to celebrate - we were going to play paintball. I got cleared to play by my midwife who thought it should be just fine as long as I listened to my body and drank plenty of water... but I still wasn't sure if I'd be able to play, given how I'd been feeling. I'd had to cancel plans with a friend who came in from out of town just the weekend before, I was feeling so poorly.

Then early last week, I woke up feeling... better. Not perfect, not by a long shot, but things felt manageable. By the end of the week, food wasn't quite the enemy it had been. I had more energy. And on Saturday I threw myself into the car with a small duffel bag full of snacks (who knows what will actually be appetizing later in the day) and proceeded to play paintball for about 6 hours. The best part? We stopped for dinner after and I managed to eat an entire bacon cheeseburger, fries, and some mozzerella sticks. Biggest meal I've had in over a month. Maybe not the healthiest, but at that point I didn't really care.

I have a few bruises, and my thighs are the single most sore thing on the entire planet (who knew crouching for 6 hours straight could be such a workout...) . I'm going to tell my midwife when I go in next week that apparently paintball is a great alternative to doing squats for childbirth prep.

I'm closing in on 12 weeks now, and I'm really hoping that this past week is a sign that I'm moving into clear ground on the morning sickness front.

I don't have horrible morning sickness to begin with, but yesterday I felt awful. I normally take one 4-mg Zofran every couple days when I'm feeling really nauseous, but yesterday I took THREE in one day. I'm not sure if I had a touch of a stomach bug or what. On top of that (or maybe because of that) I was feeling homesick and missing my husband (he's deployed with the Navy right now)... which tends to make me feel queasy... which makes me feel more homesick and miss my husband more... so yes, a vicious cycle. I barely was able to make some mac'n'cheese for dinner for the kids, and then I got in bed a half hour before their normal bedtime. They're 7 and 4, so I told them they could read with the lights on in their rooms for a while but I really needed them to go to bed because I wasn't feeling well.

I seem to feel better today (although still have cried about 4 times... again, homesick and missing my husband... I normally cry VERY rarely)... but I'm taking it easy.. so far have just had applesauce and Jell-O water.

I'm 10 weeks today (yay!) and my first midwife appointment is Friday. I'm hoping for an ultrasound to see how the subchorionic hemorrhage is doing.
post #12 of 90
man! you guys are toooo fast! i cant keep up!

so sorry for all the m/s. only a few more weeks ladies!

and a special to HappyMamaBeth about DH. were here for you to vent anytime!! and i believe it is good for the kids to see you sad and missing their dad. it shows love, empathy and strong family ties. good for you for not trying to hide it, and for taking time for yourself while they get some extra reading/reflecting time in.

and glad it got better! sounds awfull!

The sickness is getting better.. Im 11w1day.. Still some out of the blue more serious nausea but not the all day sickness. Thank God. I hope it really stays away.

Im glad some of you are feeling better too.

kamalynsky, so glad you got to enjoy your paintball day. That dinner sounds good. Im back to craving protein again so a big juicy hamburger sounds good. That is the only red meat that I can deal with thinking about.

HappyMamaBeth, it must be so hard to have your hubby away right now. When does he get back from deployment? - Hope you feel better soon.

nixnc, YUCK! That sounds horrible. I didnt have a headache in my life until my first pregnancy. Ugh. They are so incapaciting. I cant even imagine a migraine. My hubby gets headaches and Im sure alot more sympathethic to him now. Ive had one this pregnancy and it really did not help the morning sickness. Glad you are feeling better.

I think Im coming down with a cold, or maybe it is just allergies. I dunno. All I know is that Im tired. Super tired, could sleep 18 hours tired. This weekend was busy. Hubby and I went to the city for date night and had a blast. Shopping and really great Indian food. The naan was so good. Then Saturday we had a babyshower.. then Sunday church and trying to finish 4 dozen cake pops to get out the door this morning. Remind me to make something easier in the future. Im definitely taking a nap later. On a totally unrealted note, why does potluck food have to be so full of fat and dairy? The babyshower was potluck and there was so much food, but hardly anything appetizing. Everything looked like it had gads of mayo and sourcream in it. Maybe they all made recipes out of our church cookbook that just came out. Holy moley, people eat interesting things. There were dozens of pages at a time where I couldnt find a recipe without a cream of something soup. I wont post some of the wtf recipes since they literally made me nauseous. I told my husband he is the luckiest man alive that I dont make him eat Dorito Casseroles.

Hoping for a low key week this week.

My MIL gave me a church cookbook when we got married. It's almost hilarious but definitely not appetizing.

Dorito Casserole sounds like something out of the Duggars!
post #17 of 90
is the doritos casserole for real? if so what does it take to make that?

i am guilty of loving casseroles. they are quick and easy. not serious about making a dorito casserole--but it sounds interesting.
post #18 of 90
im guessing melt velveta, dump it over Doritos and add sour cream...
post #19 of 90
that doesn't sound too terribly bad, except the sour cream
post #20 of 90
I can't eat Doritos, cause they have gluten but I found this cause the curiousity was killing me: http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,178,...233207,00.html

I have however made frito pie which involves a layer of fritos, chili, cheese and sour cream. You heat the chili up first though, cause then the fritos don't get soggy.
