The same thing happened to me Tuesday, the doctor couldn't find the heartbeat, but I was psyched because I knew she would send me downstairs for an ultrasound!  The good thing about feeling awful is I know the baby is ok!

 

I told my supervisor today. He is a good friend, so he went through the full range of emotions from "Oh my gosh, you're starting all over??" to the horror of having to pump in our all-male office... very funny. We decided to keep it quiet and see how long it takes anyone to notice.

Had my ultrasound today! Only one baby (my DH had himself convinced it would be twins...), moving and kicking around like crazy. The tech even did a little 4D u/s and that was so awesome. I've never had one before and it was so awe-inducing to see that tiny BABY, waving his/her arms and kicking his/her legs. I also got to hear the hb for the first time. I feel so much better now... I mean, being in week 5 of "morning" sickness was a pretty good indicator that things are going good, but having had that loss, just seeing and hearing the baby puts my mind at ease. From here on in, we'll be able to hear the hb with the doppler and soon, I expect to be feeling the baby move. Seeing the baby today ALMOST made all this hellish nausea bearable... almost. I'm SO done with m/s, but fully expect to be feeling puky for another 6-8 weeks, if history is any indication. :(

My first NON-PUKE DAY!!!!!joy.gif

 

My strategy for this morning was to out-run morning sickness. I ate a bowl of cereal RIGHT when i got up, showered, dressed, and went out for a walk (all in the matter of about 15 minutes). I had a few rough patches this afternoon and this evening, but I realized that was because I hadn't eaten in a few hours.

So I keep hearing about this, then when I eat while not hungry I get sicker than a dog.  This kills me.  I'm trying so hard to get ahead of this by eating or what ever and I just can't.  I'm so glad that you dd better last night though, that's just wonderful mama!!!

Same here. Trying to "stay ahead" of my hunger does absolutely nothing for me or makes it worse. But then, if I ever feel hungry, eating makes me want to die. So I basically have no options here but to feel horrible. lol. But I am very glad that some of you are feeling better! I had a couple of good days this week anyway!

I am still feeling pretty crappy but haven't vomited food in almost a week. My new big concern is my blood sugars.  Since finding out I was pregnant I started testing my fasting blood sugars every few days and the occasional after eating blood sugars and they had been pretty good till last week when twice I got high readings 1 hour after eating sugary cereal but normal after 2 hours and then today I had a higher reading 2 hours after eating dinner which was kinda big and pretty carby.  I started having a freak out and feel that I already have Gestational Diabetes (I had it with my first pregnancy but not with my son but he was 9lb 12oz at birth but healthy) I will be talking to my midwife about it on Monday. The big problem is that the food that is appealing and I can keep down is really carb heavy and not to healthy. However I can no longer eat that way. greensad.gif All I want is a normal pregnancy with a beautiful natural vaginal birth of a healthy baby. Just feeling sorry for myself and worried about my baby.

It's so encouraging to hear that many of you are starting to feel more "normal" again....ughhh...soon!  This has been the roughest week so far.  Yesterday (12 week mark) I couldn't stop retching.  Blech.  But today was the best day in a long while, so I'm hoping that maybe things peaked yesterday and are looking up.  I had this crazy dream that the baby was a girl and I woke up terrified!  I'm not sure why, but man was my heart pounding.  shrug.gif

14 w 1d, headaches are way too often, but less than they were…kind of worried about this. I get them 3 times a week now…down from 7 times a week and they last ALL day and night. I drink a lot of water, I eat a lot of food…no clue.

 

I am not nauseous nearly as often, getting ahead of the hunger never worked for me either. In fact, I didn't feel bad until lunchtime. I actually found that dandelion tea helped me…maybe it was in my head…but it worked.

 

Have to finish my update later DD needs to brush teeth and go to bed…so glad to have you ladies!
