I am 7 weeks and the nausea just started, yuck! I have also been experiencing heartburn, exhaustion, little twinges in my uterus, sore breasts, and anxiety. I've lost a couple of pounds, I've been having a lot of food aversions.

The food aversions suck. NOTHING tastes good today.

I have the opposite problem ... every two hours I'm starving!!! A few weeks ago not much appealed. I'm 10 weeks tomorrow and feeling all of sudden soooooooo exhausted. My other pregnancies the fatigue has hit way earlier. Also feeling quite crampy this week, but I'm hoping it is just gastrointestinal stuff ...

This is how I am feeling too. I am hoping it is a mixture of being so damn constipated and normal stretching and growing. I am supposed to be quitting my progesterone supplement soon but I don't want to do it if I am feeling any crampiness.

I had DH buy prunes on Friday and finally had a normal bowel movement this morning- it was magical.  redface.gif

 

Food aversions and still so sick despite the Zofran.  I only puked once yesterday and today but I still feel AWFUL all.day.long.  DH  and family have been around LOTS and helping.  I am nervous about being on my own again tomorrow.  People have offered to help but I am not sure what all to ask.  Just make sure the kids don't die and please give them something to eat from the fridge?

Yay for prunes!!! :) And ugh on the cramping,  BaileyB. It's so unsettling, isn't it?

I'm so glad you mentioned the anxiety.  I've had days where I'm just tense and cannot relax.  I'm a bit of an anxious person normally (thanks mom!) but I was hoping this wasn't just me.

I think I just found the solution to my morning sickness!  In the morning from waking until about 9 is the only time I actually feel decent so after not for a while (since I have been feeling awful) DH and I DTD.  I don't feel awful today!  Kind of icky but not awful.  I told him we will have to have sex every morning now! orngtongue.gif

LOL!

 

I read online that some guy was trying to sell the idea that blow jobs were the best cure for morning sickness. Maybe he was right!? His idea was that by taking in the baby's father's genetics it helped your body acclimate to it and your body stopped having a reaction to his genetics and making you sick.

ROTFLMAO.gifI don't think I could put anything that size in my mouth without puking.  That is sooo funny!

That's basically what I told DH. It's not very cute if I am puking in your lap!

My boobs have gotten huge too. They aren't as sore anymore but they are super full. I've herad of women getting spd pretty early in some pregnancies. It is so uncomfortable!

 

This pregnancy insomnia is getting a bit ridiculous! I go to bed around 10 and then wake up at 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, and then at 7:30 DD is up for the day. But then I am tired all day! I am only getting up once to pee, the rest of the time I am just tossing and turning. In good news though, I am 10 weeks and 4 days today and I have had no MS yet today! Woohoo! Hopefully it will stay this way now. I still have kind of a funny taste in my mouth off and on but overall I don't feel very pukey.

Yay!  That's great!

 

I have found the nausea is more or less gone.  The fatigue is much better too.  I am also suffering from the pregnancy insomnia though.  I go to bed at 10 and lay awake until after 11 even though I'm tired.  Then, if I wake during the night for any reason it takes forever to fall back asleep.  I bet the fatigue would disappear if this darn insomnia does too.  Although, last night at about 3 I realized I was awake because I was hungry.  I had a half glass of milk and was able to fall back asleep much more quickly.  Today seems to be a hollow day (it is not yet noon and I've had 2 boiled eggs, a pumpkin muffin, and a huge turkey sandwich with stuffing and cranberry sauce) so maybe the pregnancy hunger is kicking in.

That pumpkin muffin sounds really good. I need to do some major pregnancy baking and cooking. Right now our fridge is full but there is nothing to eat. I keep opening the door to find something to eat but it is all over due leftovers and random things that got forgotten about. I started a chicken in the crockpot and have some egg plant parm in the freezer to heat up and I will probably bake the last lasagna too. I think I need to make some cookies and/or muffins too. Mmm. Yay eating!

Mmm, they are pretty yummy. Here is the recipe:  http://allrecipes.com/recipe/pumpkin-wheat-honey-muffins/

 

DS can't have eggs, so I subbed 1 bananna and some egg substitute (different startches essentially).  I also didn't add the sugar and they're sweet enough for me with just the honey.  I also subbed half the oil for apple sauce, and followed the reviews about the spices (1 tsp cinnimon, 1 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4tsp cloves).  I suggest making a double batch!  They are yummers!

Thanks for sharing the recipe!  I pinned it for later.  Do you find they need more leavening without eggs or do they come out fine?  DD2 can't do eggs either.

They came out fine for me. They are a moist, dense muffin.  Not like super dense, but not fluffy like a sponge cake either. The powder egg substitute I use has some extra levener in it though.  I don't remember the brand name...

Now I've got muffins on the brain eat.gif  We tried new gluten-free blueberry muffins a few days back, and they were yuck.  Gave me a stomachache on top of nausea!  Waffles sweetened with fruit juice and agave did the same, actually.  Maybe my sweet tooth is going into retirement -- boo!
