How is Everyone Feeling? - Page 2

post #21 of 98

I am SO irritable. Seriously, I feel like biting someone's head off about 25 times a day. It's often my 2 year old, but I'm working on staying calm and continuing with our gentle discipline. This shall pass. Oh, and I'm going to bed 3 hours earlier than normal every night because I simply can't keep my eyes open.

Hi! I guess I'm feeling pretty good... a little tired, but DS was sick last week. I've also got the weird twinges, sometimes sudden/sharp and sometimes crampy. I definitely don't remember them with DS! I've had a couple waves of nausea, but they passed quickly, and have been eating for more than 2 eat.gif! I even bought a ton of groceries (the day before my BFP) and couldn't understand why since I normally stick to my list. I'd better get a lot more exercise if this is how it's going to be from now on...haha!

I am new to the list.  I am pretty certain I am pregnant, as I tested twice last week (27+28 days of my cycle) and got a faint pink line and then again today and got a little bit darker but still faint pink line.  I want to try to go for a blood test this week.  I feel like my husband and I wont TOTALLY come to grips with the fact that this is happening until we get the blood tests back.  This was our first month trying after much anticipation.  So I am not technically 34 days past the first day of my last period, but I am not sure how many days past dpo as I wasnt really tracking--probably between 18-22.  Do you know when this means I would be due--are my calculations that around the first two weeks of Jan. correct?

 

How am I feeling?

 

Well...VERY excited, but nervous.  My boobs hurt and I have little sharp pains in my lower stomach and some tinges in my back every so often.  Staying hopeful, although slightly nervous about having a first child who is also a capricorn (as am I)...and various other things that I wont mention at this time.

 

I have been lurking around these community boards for a while and am happy to be posting for the first time.

 

Sending everyone good vibes.

I'm also feeling the twingy sensations in my lower abdomen and the sudden, sharp sensations occasionally on the right side.  This is my first, so I'm not sure what's normal and what isn't, but I'm trying to stay in the moment and not worry about what-ifs.  I'm bloated & a bit gassy, so the sensations could be correlated with that.  

I've also been quite lethargic, hungrier than normal, and more aware of odors and tastes than usual.

It looks like my morning sickness finally caught up with me.  So far, it's nowhere near as bad as last time.  Either that, or I'm just better at managing it now.  If I eat first thing when I get up, then have lots of small meals throughout the day, I can stave off the nausea.  But it's definitely all-day sickness...  I started feeling icky last night at 10:30 pm when I got hungry.  Oh well.

Just stopping in to happily report that I took another clear blue digital with conception monitor this am. Last Sunday I got "PREGNANT 1-2 WKS" today I got "PREGNANT 2-3 WKS". I think I can now step away from the pee sticks, lol.

I'm actually feeling totally normal, occasional mild crampy pulling in the lower abdomen, but otherwise symptom free. My pregnancy with dd (20 months) was pretty much symptom free the entire time. If I hadn't tested, I wouldnt have known I was preg until I started showing / felt her moving. lol.

super nose has arrived...I'm smelling everything!  Metal mouth and a slight sense of ick seems to be coming on as well.  I am still going to tell myself this time will be different, that I will not be as sick.  We are going to see a huge amount of family and friends next week.  I was hoping to wait to tell people, but if I'm feeling awful they will know right away since they know we've been ttc.

Super nose, love that. I sent an email to my sweetie the other day that had the subject "I can smell everything." Sometimes it's okay but other times, uh oh.

 

I had some queasy yesterday morning and then was okay after we ate brunch. I napped several times over the weekend and was asleep early last night. I am excited as I made an appointment with an acupuncturist for next weekend in hopes that if I get m/s it will help keep it at bay. We also went shopping yesterday and I stocked up on bland foods, high protein foods and lemons, lemons, lemons. I also got lemon popsicles and lemon candy.

I feel pretty good right now.  Have definately had days where I felt horribly tired, and even a little nauseaus, but overall it's pretty good.  I've realized a sudden urge to exercise a lot, but I think that's because this was not at all planned, and I'm way more out of shape than I had hoped to be if I was ever going to be pregnant again.  With DD I felt like garbage the whole first trimester, so I'm hopeful that this is just a different situation, and not that it means something bad about this pregnancy.

I'm feeling pretty gross.  Lots of nausea already.  I was hoping it would be better this time.  I guess we shall see!

post #31 of 98

I'm 5w6d and feeling a bit of nausea.  I had none last time, unless I smelled cooking meat, so this a surprise.  I was hoping I'd be spared for life!  haha.  I think it must be hypoglycemia causing it (which I've read is one of the better theories about preggo nausea)  bc it comes on right before or after I start feeling hungry and seems better after I eat.  I also have sore boobs and am tired - though the tired thing could be non-preg related!  DS is tiring by himself!  lol.

post #32 of 98

5w4d and all day nausea has kicked in. I'm so tired--my eyes are droopy most of the day and I can barely function. 

post #33 of 98

I'm sooooo tired. I'm pretty nauseous too, but nothing too bad yet. I'm 6w4d. Hoping the ms stays as just nausea. 

post #34 of 98

I'm a bit tired, but not as bad as I remember last time around (dark cloud exhausted, slept 12 hours a day), at least so far!  *fingers crossed* A little bit of minor morning sickness (plus nausea from annoying sounds a couple of times), tender nipples, bloated belly, stronger sense of smell, need to pee often. Also, I feel warmer and like I'm sweating more. I don't remember this from before! My short term memory is a bit shorter than normal, too, so I already have to write everything down when I think of it or I forget it.

 

I have been worrying about m/c and several other things that are probably somewhat irrational (diabetes, yeast/parasites, progesterone, abdominal diastasis, my weight, etc.), but I can tell myself that and it doesn't make the worry go away! Last time I can understand why I was having the "should have done x before I got pregnant" because things happened so fast, but this time I've had 3 years of trying to do these things, so I should feel ready, right?!

 

In some ways it's a pain having symptoms, but overall I'm glad because it means that things are still progressing. 

 

I'm convinced that the first trimester is all about worries and concerns!

post #35 of 98

6w2d now - still tired, a little nauseous but not too bad, bloating at night and waking up to pee already.  oh and the dog nose.  always the dog nose!  i can smell EVERYTHING.

post #36 of 98

I hit 6 weeks.... and morning sickness hit me full throttle. OMG I am miserable and nothing is now working. Not cool. I am hoping this passes soon. Oh and the tired. Always tired. Ugh.

post #37 of 98

5-6 weeks, not sure of the exact date of my LMP. VERY sore breasts, that is how I knew I was pregnant. A touch of nausea, not too bad yet. I'm having a bit of twinge-like cramping in my low abdomen. Super hungry today.

post #38 of 98

Very tired, hungry and crabby! And I get the crampy feeling too, it just feels like gas but right where my uterus is. I suppose it's just part of the bloating I have going on or things are already stretching out.

post #39 of 98

anyone else having heartburn? I have no nausea, but the heartburn is really weird. I am also having really frequent urination.

 

Not sure how pregnant I am/when I am due since I had just come off the pill and was irregular. OB is going to let me know based on a serial HCG test.....

post #40 of 98

I am feeling alright overall I guess. My migraines have started....no where near as bad as last time and I am praying they arent. Last time I had a migraine for 3.5 months...it never went away. I've had da low back-ache off and on. I have no desire to eat but I am constantly hungry and my tummy hurts because of this. However, once I sit down to eat I just can't without feeling icky.
