post #101 of 132

After spending the last couple of weeks just miserable with morning sickness I've finally started experimenting with different supplement scheduling and whatnot. Today is the first day so far that I am feeling somewhat human! I had a couple scrambled eggs before getting out of bed today (thank you husband) and skipped all of my supplements with the exception of the progesterone pills I'm taking. My husband and I agreed that I should try taking those tonight before bed with my evening prog pill and hopefully just sleep through the ickyness. I'm also going to stop my FCLO/BO for a bit until the nausea is gone. Hubs is a pharmacist and thinks that combined with the prog is causing rapid absorption and contributing to the ms. Whatever it is that's different and/or working, I hope it sticks! Feeling as bad as I have been has really taken a toll on me. I also feel better when I get out on the treadmill during DD's naps. Fresh air and little bit of movement. 

 

One thing I've been dealing with though is that after I take my night time prog pill I pass out rather easily and sleep hard for about 4 hours. Then I wake up to pee and I am unable to fully get back to sleep. I can lay and rest but my mind is racing and I'm not ever in a deep sleep. Is anyone else dealing with this? It could be entirely unrelated to the prog and maybe that 4 hours I get is more than I would otherwise.... Who knows. 

 

I'm 7w4d today.

Man that must have been heartbreaking to hear.  :(  I pray it's sticky too!!!!

I haven't heard back from the midwives for some reason...left a message yesterday because I couldn't go in for my serial hcg.  I tried but the lab didn't have the requisition for the repeat. 

 

BUT i was able to get the results from Friday online...hcg is nice and high for 6w6d  67219 !  I am happy that they aren't crazy high this time but are at the upper range.  It'd be better to have the second draw to compare it to but for now the hb and the high hcg that seems positive.

1babysmom, I'm sorry. ((hugs)) I so desperately want a sibling for my DD, too. And she is just getting to the age where she is IN LOVE with all of my friends' newborns. I'm going to send her to a friend's house to play for my appointment tomorrow so she doesn't know about the (possible) baby. It's just too hard when these losses happen over and over (we have a known chromosomal issue that causes losses). I hope that this one sticks, if nothing more than so she can have a siblng who's not too far from her age. Hoping this baby is sticky for you too.

Keeping all of the mama's in this group in my thoughts and prayers for sticky babies for all of us <3

 

I have my intake apt with my mw on Friday, I'll be 9w4d and I'm really really hoping that we might get lucky and hear the hb. Also trying to not psyche myself up since I know it's a slim chance. We measured a day or two ahead at the u/s 2 weeks ago so I'm feeling like it's a possibility, and I know my kiddos would be so ecstatic to hear it.

 

Symptom wise, I'm feeling pretty good still but am getting waves of nausea throughout the day, especially after I eat. The food aversions are killing me - the mere thought of eating brings on the nausea greensad.gif I don't generally throw up, even when pregnant, but it still is pretty debilitating. Plus I get kind of light headed and fatigued. I'm having a hell of a time remembering to take my vitamins but I'm working on it (and I usually do take them at night since even though they're the "gentle on your stomach" ones, they still make me feel sick...)  

 

I don't own a scale, but I think I've lost a bit of weight (I still have plenty to loose though...) because even though this is baby #4, all my pants are still buttoning fine. It's shirts I'm having a hard time with - my breasts have filled out quite a bit and my whole abdomen is reshaping so I just look really fluffy and nothing is flattering. Probably going to pull out the maternity stuff sooner rather then later though, maybe I can find something that will look ok lol.

YAY for symptoms! :) Mine are getting tender too. Wish we could pick and choose symptoms! LOL

One of my midwives called yesterday. I've got my first appointment booked for September 26th. It's going to be an hour long! Wow! Never got appointments that long at the clinic I went to with DD (unless you count time in the waiting area rolleyes.gif).  I'm going to be getting a 1st trimester screening ultrasound and blood work as well (to check our chances for chromosomal problems). With DD nobody even asked me if I wanted an early ultrasound. - I'm not actually worried about chromosomal problems, but I'd like to know that everything's looking good so far, and that there is only one little Turducken developing in there (Turducken being our "womb name" for this one - since pregnant ladies are like Turducken for zombies).

That's one thing that pregnancy always does to me...when I do fall asleep, I may sleep like a rock, but if I wake up at all, sometimes it takes me HOURS to fall back to sleep.  I just can't.  Drives me nuts.

Me three. I could easily go to bed at 5 everyday for the last few weeks. I have been able to go to bed between 9 and 11 and sleep hard until 3 and then pee and then toss and turn fall back asleep at 6 and sleep hard again until 7 or 8 if I am lucky.

Coffee that must be hard with having the chromosonal losses. I can never decide whether it would be better or not to know why I had my losses. It must be nerve wracking, too. Lots and lots of good luck to you.

I know what you mean. Today I had my first REAL nausea from eating something. Too many loaded nachos at the waterpark today.

post #110 of 132

And my daughter just came over to me with all sorts of nastiness in her diaper...too many loaded nachos for her too!

Well, I had my midwife appointment today. I had an ultrasound and it looks like I'm only 5 weeks 1 day. My first reaction was that is a bad thing and the baby isn't growing, but I do think I ovulated late and this could explain why it took so long to get a bfp and why I'm not sick yet. They drew blood and will take more on Saturday to compare. I'll have another u/s next Friday.

post #112 of 132

So, when I was pregnant with DD I never had any m/s (my mom never did either with two daughters, and my sister, who had two m/c never got sick either). Last night though I felt a tad gross when I was going to sleep...which got me wondering...

 

If (since every pregnancy is different), I were to actually get m/s this time, how soon does it usually start up? I'm about 5 weeks based on first day of LMP.

post #113 of 132

Iron man - I have started to feel off and/or queasy for the last few days but my full on crappy m/s usually starts at 7 o r8 weeks.

 

Lisanne - Good luck! The early weeks are so nerve wracking. My dr.'s nurse called today with my 3rd beta test results but only said that they were good, and not what the actual number was and now I really wished I would've bugged her for what they were, but also kind of glad I didn't because I would probably be over analyzing them. I'm already on progesterone and baby aspirin so what else could I do to try to prevent any losses?

Thanks! It'll be interesting to see what happens... And, sorry to be nitpicky, but it's IronMam, as in Iron Mammaries.

Mine started at about 8 weeks as well. (however, did not know what was going on until 9w! Thought I was just ill!)

post #116 of 132

With my daughter, my "morning" sickness kicked in in the fifth week (don't remember the exact day).

With my son, my "morning" sickness kicked in at 4w on the dot (BRUTAL).

With this pregnancy, I was sick by 5w3d.

 

The 8th week was so far my worst week by far.  (I'm 9w even tomorrow.)  In previous pregnancies I started feeling mild relief at 11w but wasn't well until 15w and 18w, respectively.  Boooooo hiss.  Praying I'll have a shorter go of it this time.
 

post #117 of 132

My morning sickness always kicked in during the 5th week. I'm hoping it hits soon. I didn't have any with my miscarriages.

Oops sorry! Lastnite I was ill to almost throwing up but I had a hamburger patty and it mostly solved any ickiness and I didn't feel as bad this morning. My stupid morning sickness tends to last until around 18 to 20 weeks as well. I thought it was suppose to end when you placenta takes over, why does it last so long for some people?

I have had amazing ms results using vitamin b6 and unisom.  It's a widely used remedy, though somehow I never heard of it while suffering through months of ms with my last two.  There are several threads on mothering about it, and I've yet to find anyone who said it didn't cure their morning sickness.  A few people get results just taking b6, but usually you need it combined with unisom.  My midwife suggested 50mg of b6 morning and again at night, and half a unisom tab at night (has to be the regular- not the softgels or meltaways) It's such a small dose of unisom, doesn't make me the least bit sleepy.  I kinda wish it would as I have trouble staying asleep!

I'm usually leary of taking medicine, but when I weighed my options, not being able to properly supervise and take care of my children was just too dangerous.  I can walk and function somewhat normally now!

post #120 of 132

I'm 8 weeks today (and celebrating my 30th birthday!) and my MS has died down significantly. It got really bad for a couple weeks when I was taking my progesterone pills and my regular supplements. As soon as I switched up the timing of my supplements it improved. Thank goodness! Now I just need to make it to my appt on Thursday to see the baby and know everything is still progressing.
