post #21 of 175

About 9 days past ovulation, had a super faint line on a test this morning, feeling pretty good about it all, DH needs to see a darker line to believe I think! I'm hoping to share our news with some family on Mother's Day , how fitting :))))  Been wanting to be pregnant awhile now, hopefully #3 is on the way!

Melanie - I had a ton of energy the first 2 weeks as well - I couldn't sleep for more than 5 or 6 hours and would just wake up each morning - wide awake.  I felt like I could totally be exercising, but just wanted to take it easy the first few weeks.  (The one miscarriage that I've had I was pretty gung ho about exercising right from the start.  Maybe just coincidence, but...)  Now at 6 weeks I still have quite a bit of energy, but am pretty tired by bedtime (11 or 12) and get a solid night's sleep easily, except for having to get up to pee. 

 

Peeing, tender breasts, short temper, gassy-ness, occasional crampiness and occasional little waves of nausea are my 6 wk symptoms.  With the digestive issues still at the top of the pack.  I did get up last night at 11 to make oatmeal cookies - I'm not exactly a cookie maker or eater - so I guess that was my first weird craving.

We're keeping this pregnancy pretty hush-hush until we hear the heartbeat, but will be announcing to my in-laws on Mother's Day, too. DH and I are their only option for grandchildren and they were convinced that we were finished so it will be a nice little surprise for them. smile.gif We bought a newborn onesie and wrapped it with MIL's gift.

Two symptoms I forgot to mention: I feel like I'm peeing all the time, and I get really gassy/bloated in the evenings.

A bit of hopefullness for those without symptoms?

 

I've been otherwise sick, so my body has been all kinds of messed up, but I was thus far missing the classic symptoms I had with DD, like nausea. And I had no breast tenderness or fullness, which was very worrisome. But I got an u/s yesterday, as I've been ill and unfortunately I have to use progesterone support, and despite the lack of pregnancy symptoms, there was a perfectly sized gestational sac, yolk sac, and an embryo complete with an actual heartbeat. So you never know!

Aphel, I feel better just reading your post.

I'm just over 5 weeks now and have been sick since about 2 days after conceiving this little bean. Two weeks of antibiotics for an early case of Lyme cartainly kept my mind off the TWW. Unfortunately, the illness combined with the antibiotics in a nasty way to totally destroy my digestive system. Since conceiving, I'm not actually sure I've digested anything. At this point I'm fully restricted to bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, and the occasional egg. Hopefully this will get things better. I'm not even allowed prenatals right now.

Anyone's have any suggestions for very, very easy to digest foods?

Needless to say, for someone who had a super easy first pregnancy, I'm terrified about this one. I can't understand how I managed to get and stay pregnant with no food and a 101 fever for weeks. I just hope this bean can hold on for a little bit longer while I get better.

I was the sickest I've ever been when this baby was made. Two different antibiotics, many doctor visits. I'm just now getting over it completely only to be hit with first trimester ick. I hear y'all.

I'm starting to get really dizzy, anyone else?

 

How is everyone doing with caffeine? I have a cup of coffee in the morning, but I'm really wanting an iced coffee or tea in the afternoons...............like right this very second! LOL! I cant get my house cleaned without some sort of caffeine!!

 

Does anyone know if its ok to drink acv while pregnant or kombucha?

post #30 of 175

How funny is this? Look at all of us sickies! I too am amazed that my body has continued to grow a baby through all of the antibiotics, fever, and weight loss. But there it is.

 

Kawa, I have a feeling that as soon as I get rid of this infection, morning sickness will hit as well. No rest for the weary, eh?

 

And to tinyblackdot, I just visited your Maddie's page and read your last entry. What a brave and beautiful little girl!

I'm also experiencing some dizziness. Bleh. I've found a glass of milk works wonders for me. I remember the same thing happening my last pregnancy, low blood sugar made me a bit dizzy.

I've been drinking 1 or 2 cups of coffee, but may switch to tea. I have a box of lemon and ginger, which sounds lovely right now!

Well im not eating until like 2 or 3, nothing sounds good at all, so it could totally be the case. I might have to at least start making me a smoothie. UGH!

Melanie,

 

You should definitely try to eat earlier on - I bet that would take care of your dizziness.  I had a naturopath tell me once that if you don't set your day up well by eating within an hour of waking, and making sure to get enough protein at that meal (I think it was 20 or 30% of your first meal being protein of whatever sort) - that it can just mess up the rest of your day.  Your body never quite recovers from it.  xo

So happy to be here! :)

 

5 weeks today and the only symptoms I've had so far are exhaustion and waking up at 3 every morning starving, like can't fall back asleep until I get up and eat something starving. I've had extreme food aversions in all of my pregnancies, but that never kicks in until 6 weeks, so I may be safe a little while longer. We, too, have had losses, so it's always something of a relief when the symptoms finally start rearing their heads.

I almost always get light headed when I stand up. Have to be mindful to move more slowly which is, of course, not compatible with a home full of kids. 

 

I have a cup in the morning but yeah, late afternoon leaves me completely drained and I'm not sure how I'll make it to bed time.

post #37 of 175

I'm really tired, yawning all day.  Still only nauseous a little bit here and there though.  My toddler is sick today and my nipples are killing me (nursing all. the. time.) and i need to pee the whole time but apart from that...

 

Oh and i nearly fainted in the supermarket on Saturday, soooo embarrassing! Got that horrible fuzzy greyness round my peripheral vision and then had to do high leg lift walking (to spike my bp!) to the tills to avoid a collapse.  Thankfully made it back to the car ok.

 

Better stop, DD pooped and i can smell her nappy SO powerfully! :/

post #38 of 175

The nausea is kicking in for me (5w5d), but so far I seem to be able to squash it pretty quickly.  Crossing everything that I do not get as sick with this one as I did with DS2.  fingersx.gif

post #39 of 175

Yep, the super smell has kicked in for me. I think we're going to do some potty learning this summer, because yesterday's poopy diaper was unbearable.
 

post #40 of 175

Super sensitive nose here, too. The nausea goes back and forth, seems to be worse when I haven't eaten much. With DS I only threw up 4 times, so I'm hoping for another easy pregnancy as far as "morning sickness" goes.
