This is my third pregnancy (it still sounds surreal...) and I'm actually feeling quite well! I am really tired, but other than that, so far so good! I really hope I dont' have any kind of morning sickness (and if I do, I hope its minimal) I am around 4 weeks along (just found out yesterday!) and I am having just some light cramping, but nothing to worry about. So my question is...how are all of you mamas feeling? I hope well!
So how is everyone feeling?
I'm five weeks exactly today, and so far, not much to report by way of symptoms. The only symptom that I've noticed is some cramping that started about three days before AF was due, and that hasn't let up since. But, since there's no spotting or bleeding, and since our doctor had suspected I have endometriosis after a year of trying, I'm not too worried about it, and just taking it as a sign that this pregnancy is still progressing.
Sometimes I do wish I felt a bit more by way of symptoms -- like maybe some morning sickness -- but I'm trying to count myself lucky in not having too many complaints at this point.
Had some intense nausea for a few days, but has died down now that i stopped using the progesterone cream i was using to lengthen my LP. Other than that i've been good, tired, but mostly because DS is sick and feverish at night and my chronic hives are flairing. Had very few symptoms first time around so hope this is the same
I'm totally feeling it already and I'm only 5 weeks! I'm absolutely exhausted all the time, totally turned off food (I have to force myself to eat), huge sore boobs, sore back. I was queasy off and on for awhile but that seems to have died off. I'm eating a ton of protein (it's generally the only thing that sounds somewhat appetizing to me), which I think is helping. With DD I had 24/7 nausea from about 6-17 weeks and I'm hoping I escape some of that this time.
I Dont have nausea, have aversion to meat though, experience occasional breast soreness,and pulling tugging and periodic cramping around the uterus area. When is everyone doc apt? Are u getting an u/s in ur first apt? mine is on 4/10 can hardly wait. Had two miscarriages last year pray this one is a healthy baby. I am consumed by those thoughts 24/7.
I don't have a dr appt yet. I"m transferring (hopefully) to a CNM practice in town. I'm crossing my fingers that they'll have space. I'm not expecting an u/s the first visit. There is a crisis pregnancy center in my city and they'll give you a free transvaginal u/s if you're over 7 weeks, so I"m planning on going that route for dating. If you're worried about miscarriage, they can draw serial betas, maybe that would ease your mind some. I'd love to have betas drawn but since I"m not in a practice yet, I just have to wait.
ETA: Oh, and I"m peeing like 24/7. I was surprised how quickly that came back, lol!
A urine test came back positive even though my calendar stated it was only day 19 of my cycle. My doctor ordered a HCG and progesterone level and on 4/2 it came back as HCG 357 and Progesterone 1.4. My ob started me on 200 mg of oral progesterone. On 4/4 labs were repeated and HCG was 512 and Progesterone was 21. On 4/6 labs were HCG 815 and progesterone 10. Labs were drawn three times due to my last pregnancy losing on, and delivering one. I was pregnant with twins (different sacs) and the loss of one at 7 weeks. I went on to deliver a healthy baby girl at 37 weeks who is now 2 and 1/2.
I am mostly concerned at the fact of finding out so early (I'm only on day 24 of my cycle) and the fact that I have had spotting off and on. I now take 400 mg of progesterone daily. Once my hcg reaches 1000, they will to a ultrasound.
Does this sound crazy to anyone else??????
P.S. Congrats to everyone.......
Mrs Lemon, it only sounds crazy because I'm not very *medical* (if that makes sense,) and I have no idea what the protocols are and such. That is super early to find out! But, with my previous two pregnancies, I knew as soon as I got pregnant. Of course it took a while before I tested, but I just knew.
Good luck & welcome here!!
5 1/2 weeks along here and this is my fourth go. No morning sickness yet (I'm taking B12 everyday in an attempt to avoid it this time), just a general feeling of exhaustion and occasional slight tingling in my boobies. I do have very mild cramping sometimes, but that's about it. I have my first doctor appt on Tuesday.
Hellooooo round Ligaments! They have made their presence known really early this time. I actually felt some in yoga only 5 dpo, which I know is technically impossible, but there ya go. Then the day before I tested it started up daily and its at least 50% of the times I go from sitting to standing or turn in my sleep or cough. sigh.
5th time being pregnant, though we lost the last one at 14 weeks.
I guess my body just knows what's up that much earlier. Whoa.
This is my first, and I'm just at 5 weeks, but I started having a few symptoms last week that have gotten a little more intense. It took me so long to get to this point, and I had an early loss in November, so of course I am googling every little ache and pain.
I have this weird, sour, metallic taste in my mouth, so not much tastes that great to me, and food is just unappealing in general, though so far it's just nausea. I'm definitely crampy, but nothing too painful. The emotional roller coaster, though...wow. I seem to cry at everything these days, and I want to take a nap all the time. At around 8:00 every night, I am just ready for bed.
I'm not having too many symptoms which is weird for me but I'm only 4 wks pregnant. Mostly I've felt some cramping on and off and I feel tired but I'm not sure if that is pregnancy or just life related! With all of my pregnancies I've had bleeding in the beginning and this time I've had none. I'm trying to enjoy not having symptoms but at the same time it has me a little on edge since I've had 2 m/c's and 1 ectopic. Not sure when I'll make an appointment with the midwives. Maybe I'll call next week when I'm 5 wks along. I don't think they do an early u/s unless there is a problem and I'm pretty sure of my dates. We don't plan to tell anyone, even our kiddos, until we are much further along. Hoping for a sticky pregnancy for everyone!
All of a sudden today I'm really worried about miscarrying. When I first got the BFP I was surprised to have gotten pregnant so quickly, and sort of zen about the outcome- hopeful it would be a sticky but not too worried either way. Maybe it's because I started washing my maternity clothes but all of a sudden I'm really attached to this pregnancy and terrified to lose it. I wish I could just chill out again. I suppose it's hormonal. I was at a friend's earlier and during my usual obsessive TP check I thought I saw some pink and got really upset. I think it was just the stupid prenatal vitamins staining the TP. Anyway, I'm bugging out a little bit. I just fricking hate the first trimester. It's so hard to relax and be confident that things will be OK, especially having had one miscarriage. I wish I could fast-forward to about week 14. :p
