Demeter, did you ever find anything to help it? I am thinking mine is also partially caused by progesterone suppositories. I am thinking of trying probiotics especially because I need to take a course of antibiotics.I would kill for an immodium right now!

I keep forgetting to mention thirst. I always feel as though I've just finished a huge bag of salty chips with no water in sight and am dying to drink water. I'll drink a whole glass and want another one immediately. The last few mornings I've also woken up with major thirst and super dry mouth. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the preg. itself, but I wonder if eating all this protein is also a factor. I hate leaving a glass of water by the bed because the cat will try her hardest to drink it or remove any cover I have tried to place on it (sometimes causing a big mess in the process). But I really do need to have some water by the bed. I still haven't used any of the snacks I bring to bed, but I'm going to have to add water now, for sure.
I am so thirsty all the time, and then I have to pee - I appear to have turned into a water feature. I also couldn't get comfortable last night because I got so hot under the comforter! Ack!
Nope.. it just ran it's course within a couple weeks. It wasn't pleasant while I was in the throes of it for sure. I've never taken a progesterone supplement so I don't know if it would aggravate it further. Hope you find some relief soon!
The thirst. OH THE THIRST. I've never experienced this before. I wake up and my mouth and throat feel like I've eaten sand paper. And the bad thing for me, whenever I cough when prego, I throw up. It gags me.
Lots of peeing.
Experiencing the same morning wakefulness. I'm hoping it's because I'm so excited about christmas and have so much on my to do list when I awake.
Blessedly, no morning sickness yet. Had a touch of something this morning. Took some Chinese herbal medicine and felt better in 10 minutes. That stuff is magic. Some kind of voodoo in it.

Funny you say that, I have one obnoxious cat who thinks knocking things off my bedside table equates to food in the morning. So, I sleep with this by my bed. Spill proof and easy sleep access! It really gets me to drink more during the day, too.
Hmm...what is it??
Okay, 5 weeks today, and I've been feeling queasy pretty much constantly since yesterday morning. I thought this wasn't supposed to happen until at least 6 weeks! I know a lot of people recommend ginger, but what kind? Does it have to be ginger candy, or could I take ginger capsules? I know mints help sometimes when my stomach doesn't feel good - is that okay during pregnancy? While it is mildly reassuring to feel sick, I think I'd rather not!
Hey Monkey - Any type of ginger will do (tea, fresh, candy, chews, ginger ale). I find that I get gingered out after a bit, so I also eat stuff with lemon in it (add lemon to water). Nausea mainly occurs when you need to eat. So try to eat a lot of small meals with a lot of protein - a handful of nuts here, a granola bar there or whatever it takes. Beans are also great! Really try to push protein if you can!
As for mint, totally safe!
Anyone else eating dinner and then going directly to bed? I think I've done that about 3 nights in a row now. Also, my SO confronted me on my symptoms tonight. He doesn't remember me having extreme hunger, mood swings, and tiredness so early. LOL. I remember everything but the extreme hunger and the intense hip pain I'm experiencing. Anyone else have hip pain? I could definitely do without it.
I did the same. It was so bad that I went down to working part time by the time I was 5 months pregnant because I literally couldn't get through the workday without sleeping. This is going to be extra hard for me because I not only have my toddler but the girl I nanny for. I could nap with Cece if it was just her...
I haven't been able to keep up with every post, but it sounds like I'm not the only one with extreme exhaustion. I wake up in the morning needing several more hours of sleep and that is how it is all day long. Some days my DH is able to take DD for a bit outside the house so I can get a good nap, but today is not one of those days. I knew the exhaustion would be hard b/c with DD I was able to veg oon the couch all day long if I wanted to. I'm surprised I'm not taking the tiredness better this time. I thought she would keep me distracted enough I might not need the sleep like before. Not so!!
I've also had a little bit of ms, off and on most days, and had to pee like crazy! That's all I can think of now.
Does anyone know how to combat the exhaustion better?
I am so tired, too. I have a 7 year old who is at school but my two year old thinks it's better that I get zero amounts of rest, it is very hard right now. I also have this all day long hollow, upset tummy feeling that is taking a toll on me, yuck, I just want it to go away. A PP mentioned hip pain and I hear you, I have had constant hip and lower back pain since before I found out I was preg. Here is to the first trimester flying by!
Haha so I totally missed this thread already and posted a early symptom thread but I will go here too. I am no joke 12 dpo and my boobs are about to bust out of my bra. This happened with my first too just not this early. I also had morning sickness this morning and had to lay down and cuddle my sparkling water. I also have a small bump (crazy!!!) and heartburn in the evenings.
Cecilia's mom: It was driving me nuts because I kept thinking I recognized you from MDC before and I just realized that we were in a due date group with our firsts!! My DD#1 (stillborn unfortunatley) was born March 24, 2010. It's nice to see you again. Its so funny we're in a due date club again.
I had that euphoria feeling the day after we conceived and was teasing my TTC group that I was having conception symptoms. haha. Maybe I was!
