Symptoms?

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
I'm only 4w4d and my last pregnancy was so long ago I don't remember much about my really early symptoms but I had 'morning sickness' my whole pregnancy. I'm trying to feel lucky that I'm not feeling nauseated at all right now but part of me would feel more confident if i was puking my guts out! my only symptoms are tender breasts and ravenous hunger!

What are you guys feeling?

Irritation. I am feeling a lot of it!!! Seriously, my hormones are all over the place. The first couple of months always seem to hit me hard. But other than that, I have had a tiny bit of nausea and breast tenderness. Oddly, I had no food cravings with either of my previous pregnancies, but I am desperate for very specific food items already! It's really weird!

what food are you craving? I'm not realy craving anything, but i could eat constantly, but only small amounts of any one thing at a time until i loose intrest. I'm really trying to be healthy about it- i'm already over weight, so i don't want to gain too much unnessisary weight!

I'm also really hungry. And not wanting to gain much weight. So that's a predicament.

I remember the morning sickness kicking in a big way at 7 weeks last preg b/c we had just gotten back from a vacation. The fatigue however started pretty much at 5 (I slept in the hotel most of the trip ). I hope it's different this time around. I heard those are all "girl" symptoms per some old wives.

This time around, so far I have an insatiable appetite and have gained a couple of pounds (probably by coincidence). And a little poochy tummy too. Has anyone else? I am currently underweight so I think it is just starting in the tummy/hips?

But that's about it.

I'm having mostly dizziness when standing up to fast, a slight bit of nausea now and then, very tired, and very hungry in the morning. DH might say that I'm irritable, but I'm sure he must be wrong . I'm 5wks 2 days. The one thing that's really been bugging me is some abdominal cramping, it's been going on since last Thursday. I'm really hoping it's just gas and not uterine cramps. I've had two losses this summer and so I'm very freaked out about losing another one.

No symptoms yet here, except some slight crampy feelings during week 4/5 and some serious hunger (but that's an all the time thing ). Maybe had a little boob soreness, but I didn't have much change with my breasts during my first pregnancy (until I was nursing of course) so I imagine they'll stay the same this time too. I'll be 6 weeks this weekend, and not much going on....which is very similar to my first pregnancy. Got morning sickness at week 7 last time so I'm trying to brace myself for the ride...

Barbeque chicken salad from Smokin Woodys! I almost never eat meat, but when I do this is it!! Cheetoes, too. I haven't had them in years but there is a bag in my pantry right now. I haven't opened it yet but I just might tonight after the day I had

I am starting this pregnancy about 15 pounds over my ideal weight. I have been exercising almost daily and trying to eat well and keeping my fingers crossed that I don't gain too much. With my first, I was on complete bedrest for almost 4 months and I gained 60 pounds. I lost all but 15 of it before I got pregnant with my 2nd. With her I gained about 30 pounds, but the weight has been very, very slow coming off. I turn 36 in a few weeks and I know that age is playing a part in my inability to loose weight these days. Truth be told, I don't care about the weight number so much, as long as I am healthy.

A little more tired and hungry than usual, but overall, I'm feeling pretty normal. I'm a tad bloated and crampy too. Morning sickness usually hits me with a vengeance between 6-7 weeks, I'm hoping it decides to skip me this time, but in the meantime I'm enjoying cooking and eating normal healthy foods.

I'm really exhausted, I'm normally a night owl. I have the whole heavy uterus feeling but I guess it's been well used and is used to this by now. I'm having MAJOR hot flashes, and I felt a little nauseous last night and today. I've been feeling more hungry but I think that's a symptom of working out.

As far as weight gain, with my first I gained 33lbs. I ended up losing that and another 25lbs. before getting pregnant with DD. I ended up gaining back everything, so almost 60lb weight gain during DD's pregnancy. I currently weigh what I did when I got pregnant with DS and I'm definitely more aware of trying to gain a healthier weight this time around. Almost 200lbs. on my 5 foot frame was not comfortable, and I gave myself permission to comfort eat everything I wanted when I was pregnant with her. So this time I'm trying to be more health conscious and stay active.

Ive been having abdominal pressure/very light cramps since about 6 dpo.. also nausea - I was sick with my first pregnancy the entire time I even had the meds for it and I was still throwing up once a day. No throwing up yet! im hoping that now that I don't have a gallbladder I wont be as sick. Ive also had very sensitive and erect nipples since 6dpo.

Sore boobs since 9dpo, crazy gas since about 8dpo, diarrhea on 9 and 10, and occasional abdominal twinges. With the gas ad diarrhea, it's probably a good thing my husband's out of town

Mostly tired so far...so so tired. I just want to sleep all the time lol I think I fell asleep right after Glee last night lol and i just remembered I even took a nap in the afternoon yesterday...wow I hope some energy comes back.

But also...certain things sound really good. I'm a vegetarian and never even liked meat before becoming veggie but those meatballs at my mom's last weekend smelled really good lol Grocery shopping has not been my friend this past week lol so many odd things look good.

But also sore breasts, peeing a lot but that comes and goes lol, feeling dizzy and short of breath, cramping and achiness...just lots of things lol

Hi all!
TIRED TIRED TIRED.

That about sums it up so far.
Some uterine cramping around the time of implantation and I was also very emotionally strung out then.

My poor husband took me out to this fancy dinner he's been planning for months last Saturday. It didn't start till 7pm (and we usually eat at 5), so I was drained from hunger from the get go. By the time dessert arrived around 9:00 it was all I could do to keep my eyes open. He was so disapointed! (and it's only going to get worse for the next few months)

Last time around the all-day sickness and puking hit me in the second trimester (right around the time I started congratulating myself on not getting hit by that particular affliciton ).

The last two mornings I've woken early, 30-60 minutes before alarm when it was still dark. And I think hunger is what woke me up.

But otherwise, I feel normal.
post #18 of 64
Honestly? Gas.

That's the main thing besides some mild fatigue. I also noticed that I'm more sensitive to caffeine. About 8oz of half-caf had me jittery and I even woke up in the middle of the night. Oh, and I'll cry about commercials, sunsets, you name it.

Besides the hunger I mentioned earlier, I've already started getting klutzy . Two spills and a dropped bowl just last night. And I think pregnancy brain is starting! What little concentration I have is all spent on baby excitement!

ok- so i wish i didn't wish for the nausea! I'm working a little strech of night shifts- and had a little throw up session at work at 5:30 in the morning. not too bad, I think it was the yogurt that didn't agree with me. I'm the most nervous about getting "found out" at work. I'm a nurse, so i can't hide out and puke all shift- plus, I don't want my co-wokers to know before other family and friends!
