post #41 of 208

me too!  and ours will be in walking distance too!  When we lived in the States I loved going to Target with my little ones...they are not so little any more, 13 and 11!  LO L

 

Hubby and I have been married 15 years as of yesterday!  So we ordered in Japanese and it was sooo good but I ate too much and felt HORRIBLE all night.  hahaha.  What's funny is that it wasn't even that much food but my stomach can only take a little at a time I suppose!  ;)

 

My nausea is still pretty awful...especially in the evenings.  I am 9 weeks now, yay!  I'm hoping things will peak soon so that I can be on the other side soon.  Yesterday when hubby came home from work he was like, 'wow you don't look good'.  Thanks, honey!!!  But he's right, I look pale and ill just like how I feel!  I am sooo thankful not to puke but the 24/7 nausea/gagging is tiresome.  One day at a time!

My symptoms were really light this weekend. Made me worry. I think I'd like just the right amount of nausea so I know everything is still going well for babe. Maybe I'm just further along then I thought and this is the end of the first tri?? Friday we have an u/s for size and dates. Will be more assured then.

This past week, my nausea was so bad and one day I eve threw up.  Yesterday, it just disappear and hasn't come back. This seems common at 10 weeks? So maybe I'm just lucky this time.  Hope everything is ok.

Trying to keep up, but I started school this week so I've been super busy!  Pharmacology is going to be the most BORING class ever, btw. It also comes at the end of a long day and is a three hour long lecture so on Thursday I found myself dry heaving in the gross school bathroom during it.  JOY!

 

Anyway here I am to do an epic check in....

We started our school year yesterday. Very excited. It has gone well the last 2 days. Forgot to take first day pictures yesterday, so the kids want to do pictures later today. Yesterday we spent the morning on lessons, and then baked muffins in the afternoon. I love having my kids home to do stuff like that. Today the afternoon will be spent on crafty projects. My older 2 get to choose what craft (sewing, knitting, etc.) and what they want to make. I look forward to seeing their choices.

 

I got a prenatal yoga dvd that I've started using. Nice way to start my morning. :)

Miss_Nikki, how did your interview go?  And what prenatal  videos are you doing?  Videos right now are the only exercise I can do right now, weirdly, so I'm looking to stock up!  And yay for homeschooling!  I love having the kids around to do such things too.

Me tooooooooo.  Worst!  My bloat is as bad as it was my 1st pregnancy...it wasn't nearly this bad with the second.  I swear I look 4 months pregnant just from the bloat alone!

It should peak soon right????  I'll be 9w this weekend...


Yes, you're probably peaking.  I think my peak tends to be the 7-10w range...I know, it's a long peak.  But I have long sick first tris, historically speaking.  I start to see a glimmer of hope at 11w usually but have bad days well into the second tri.  What were your previous pregnancies like?  And CONGRATS! on your wedding anniversary.

Epic check-in continued!  LOL.

I caved and accepted zofran to help me get through these days of dealing with funeral stuff around family. I don't want my nausea to be why I have to give up our secret so soon so I accepted and it worked nearly instantly. Last night I was able to focus on the Rosary without worry and I know I'll make it through the funeral today as well. I'm already an emotional wreck though so I know that part won't go well, but at least I wont feel sick!

Glad you are feeling a bit of relief, so so sorry about your loss.

 

IronMam, sounds like everything is going well for you -- I'm happy to hear someone's nausea isn't so bad and that everything else is going well too.  Yay!

post #46 of 208
Everybody here has so many symptoms that I was getting worried. wink1.gif. I used a Doppler tonight and FOUND A HEARTBEAT! So dang exciting. My husband got to hear it, as well.

I'm with the mamas who are feeling weepy. Tears all over, but not really sadness...more like the world is so beautiful it makes my heart hurt.

Love, p

On Saturday my pregnancy was officially confirmed! 8 weeks 1 day today!

post #49 of 208

I'm also still EXTREMELY tired(can easily sleep at any time for hours on end and still be exhausted), I gave up coffee(3 weeks free!), and...nausea is kicking my butt :( I haven't thrown up, but all day I feel like I have to...would almost be better just to get it over with. This is the hardest of my pregnancies :(

post #50 of 208
GAH! I CAN'T SLEEP! I have been tossing and turning all night, even got all twitchy from exhaustion. Been having stressful dreams about running late/forgetting things/etc. for DD's first day of preschool tomorrow, well...today at this point considering its 4 am. Finally forced myself to get up, eat some cereal, and take a break from trying to sleep. Hopefully I can sleep when I go back to bed. Alarm goes off in three hours. greensad.gif

- I have not figured it out yet. One of the main problems is I want to have a homebirth, but we don't know where we will be living at the time the baby comes. Right now we are living with my Dad. I don't want to stay there and we are in talks with my FIL about moving into Dh's grandma's house. But the house needs a ton of work before we can move in.  I'm hoping we get it figured out soon because as soon as we figure out where we will be living, I feel like I can tell my family about the baby.

 

 

I am not wearing maternity pants yet, just my regular clothes still.  I don't feel too bloated, just really full all the time.  Always having something in my stomach helps with nausea, so I was totally over eating a bunch. I've stopped that now and have learned to just eat a little bit if I feel nauseas. I don't want to gain a ton of weight this pregnancy.

Hello all!

I'm so glad to have found this forum!

I am 11 weeks today. Due on april fools day LOL We had our first appointment on 8/22 and I was 8 weeks 2days at the time and baby looked perfect and had a good strong heartbeat smile.gif

It's been 6.5 years since we started trying to have a family. We went through infertility treatments back to back for 2 years and nothing worked. We gave up when a doctor told us it was impossible. We started the adoption process 3 yrs ago and have waited and waited and been through two failed adoption... Then on 8/16, after being badgered to take a hpt by my husband for days, I didn't want to... Cuz I knew it would be negative! I finally did it for him and I nearly fainted! I couldn't believe it was positive! And really most of the time still can't lol

Our next doc appt is in 9 days and I'll be 12 weeks 2days... I'm so scared something will be wrong! We have only told our immediate family and won't be telling anyone else til we get to 20weeks or so...

My interview went great and I've decided to go with this group of midwives. I'm very excited. My first appointment is on Wed. I'll be 10 wks and a day, I think. We've agreed to stick with the fetoscope for heart tones during the pregnancy and save the doppler for use during labor, unless we have a reason to use it before then. Not getting a u/s unless needed as well.

 

I made a list of all the names I liked that didn't start with any of the letters I've already used and DH left me with just 2 boy names and I don't know if I really like them that much. And the girls names I kind of feel that same way.

 

Not wearing maternity clothes yet. I haven't really gained weight, but my belly is starting to adjust and move into pregnancy position so I do need to go shopping, as I have no maternity clothes!

 

Prenatal-Yoga Shiva-Rea that's the dvd I have. Right now. I did it 3 times last week but haven't done it since like Wed.

For everyone that's having a hard time sleeping, I have a suggestion for you!! I was talking to my MW about it and she suggested taking a Calcium - Magnesium supplement before bed. The cal-mag helps with leg cramps and is a mild muscle relaxer so it can help you sleep better too. I took it last night and the night before and had the best sleep I've had in weeks!! The capsules are HUMONGOUS though and I have a hard time getting them down but if it works, I'm game for just about anything!

post #57 of 208

Oh my goodness. Seems like it's been forever since I've been on here. LOL.

I interviewed two midwives and we decided on one. She is the one that does the home visits. We are excited to have a midwife picked. I just gotta let HER know we picked her now. LOL.

I have been spotting. I have never spotted before. This is so weird. It's brown so I know it's "old blood"...but anyway. It started with a bout of spotting at around 6 weeks. Then the next day nothing...then nothing nothing nothing for over a week. We'd had sex in between the last spotting incident and two days ago....so we had sex two days ago and the day after that I spotted...then nothing all day and then spotting last night...and spotting today. I dont get it. ugh.

I've also been feeling way sicker this go round....I'm feeling a lot of nausea....I'm tired of coarse...but so tired I feel sick. The thought of having to do anything makes me groan lol. Just weird. I can't say any other pregnancy has been this way. My mom chalks it up to age. Um...I'm only 29. I doubt it's age. I mean REALLY....Rogan is only 15 months it's not like it's been 10 years for me it's been a couple years for me exactly...I wont have changed THAT much during that time.

Anyway...my update is very whiny sorry lol. In other good news...we did start school last week. YAY...kids are doing ok with it. It's hard to find your groove after the summer off.

post #58 of 208

I'm with you Martha. I'm only 30 and my youngest just turned 2 last month, but this is the sickest I've felt during pregnancy and I haven't even thrown up. With my first I threw up a lot but the nausea itself wasn't so bad. The other 3 it was very manageable. I may have had a moment here or there where I didn't feel well, but not like this. I am nauseous off and on all day like I'm on a roller coaster or something and the past week I've started getting headaches too. Those haven't been too terrible, but it all makes me want to just crawl into bed until the 2nd trimester. I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow. There are even times in the middle of the night that I wake up not feeling too good. It sucks!

this is the kind of sick I've had every.time.  It truly sucks.  I only vomit once in a while, but the nausea is unrelenting.  It really does feel like I'm being poisoned, which is a terrible thing to say I know -- but that's how it feels.

post #60 of 208

I hate that I feel nauseous after eating.  It is so bad that I have to lie down because I feel like I have the flu.  So, I haven't been eating much, but then because I am hungry I feel nauseous.  Ugh!

 

On the plus side, I have to brag on DP.  I'm so in love with him lately and he is just wonderful.  Today he came home from work, I made dinner, he built legos with DD for hours while I laid on the couch recovering from eating, then put her to bed, then came out and cleaned out the kitchen, which was so gross.  The whole time I am just surfing the internet.  I was going to go downstairs and switch out the laundry just now and he insisted he would go do it.  Normally I do most of the housework and cooking, but the day after we found out I was pregnant, before I was even feeling crappy, he began doing dishes and cooking meals left and right.  When I asked him about it, he told me, "I'm just trying to get into the habit so that when the baby comes I'm not grumpy about it."
