I'm 9w3d today and I haven't had an appointment at all (and don't have one scheduled). We took a while to decide on our provider, otherwise I would have at least had one set up. I've talked to the MW over e-mail and I'm going to try to give her a call tomorrow to get that done.

So sorry to hear this. :(

I have the opposite problem with my hubby....I'll tell him what I'm upset about and he'll either get annoyed or sulky, but he won't say much. Then an hour later, I'm still mad because nothing's changed and he's back to normal, happy, nothing's wrong. We don't argue often but that makes me nuts!

I think my hormones are different now (it took about a year post DD to feel comfortable down there having sex without crying) and I think I have some anxiety of hurting the baby. Maybe one I hear the heartbeat I will loosen up!
Oh geez, I have none either. And between the exhaustion and the nausea, ugh. DH also will try when I'm half or mostly asleep and I'm like, "Seriously?"

Yesterday DH told me that he needed to talk with me about something then proceeded to tell me that my complaining about being tired or sick is getting on his nerves. I just started crying and asked him what I could possibly "discuss" with him about that. I have since kept quiet, but man...I am angry! He got so mad at me yesterday because I couldn't help him with our weekly meal planning. I told him nothing sounds good and I can't even think about it. I think that's what started the whole thing off. Maybe I do complain a lot because I am hoping for some recognition for what I am experiencing and he doesn't acknowledge it at all. Oh and hyde, I have a multi-day sulker too. That seriously annoys me. Avas Mama - I have no sex drive AT ALL. I am sure that is adding to my DH's angst.
I hear you on the meal planning and DH grumpiness. Usually I ask him if he has any requests for the week (he usually has one or 2), then I put it together and run it by him before going to the store. Now, he just says that I should do it because I'm the one who's so picky right now. He probably thinks he's being nice, but I have tried to explain to him that *nothing* sounds good, and on the rare occasion that something does, it could change at any moment, so planning it ahead doesn't really help. So then we end up eating pasta or something because neither of us can decide until dinner time and then we need something quick and easy. I usually like to cook and make most of our stuff form scratch or close to it, but even thinking about most foods right now makes me nauseous, so I can't really prepare them, either.
AFM, I've been nauseous most of the time for several weeks, but it's mostly been manageable - annoying, yes, and it gives me lots of aversions, but there was only one night where I threw up. Then it got worse a few days ago and I've thrown up a couple more times and been on the verge of it a lot. I just hope it levels off soon.
