What are your symptoms so far? - Page 2

post #21 of 95
I just wanted to add, I'm SO bloated and gassy by the end of the day.. It's so painful! It's either I'm nauseas from the morning sickness or feeling fine, but bloated and gassy.. Can't win!!

Does anyone have tips on how to relieve it? Other than of course the obvious avoiding gassy foods?

Hope you all are doing great! smile.gif

Thank you for starting this thread. Some many things I have been loosing my mi d over especially the 3am thing and cramps. Ahhh soooo nice to have others sharing the journey with me around the same time.

Nothing really so far except for some very mild nausea every once in a while, got a taste of insomnia going on eyesroll.gif , and a little cramping. DS2 is still nursing so I try to eat when my body says "EAT, NOW!" otherwise I get to feeling kind of tired and crappy.

I'm 4w2d and am not having too many symptoms. I do have some mild to moderate fatigue, and some breast tenderness, although not nearly as much as I think I should have, which is kinda freaking me out! No nausea, but I am more hungry!

5w3d as of today. Still no nausea (although, some mild food aversion), I'm waaaaay tired by 5pm and I just housed a bag of gummie bears. So, yeah, hungry!! orngtongue.gif

Argh! My symptoms keep coming and going...the most bothersome are the fatigue and the nausea.  I did find this info about the m.s. being related to nutrient deficiencies. (http://www.mommypotamus.com/7-remedies-for-morning-sickness-that-actually-work/).  I haven't tried the magnesium oil yet, but eating some soft boiled eggs definitely sent the nausea away tonight :)

Are you into traditional foods too??? I started following the Nourished Kitchen a year or so ago, and took Food Renegade's "Beautiful Babies Course," which also mentioned magnesium oil to help manage m/s. I am going to try it tomorrow, as this evening the nausea is definitely present, though "manageable."

I am, yeah! I tend to stick to a more paleo/GAPS hybrid, based on our food tolerances.  I had just started book marking all of the pre pregnancy nutrition info to look into, since I could tell I was going to start cycling soon.  I didn't know that we would catch the first egg shy.gif

I really wish that I had at least a month of eating extra folic acid, magnesium, etc.  Although, I will say that I am much less symptomatic this time around in terms of fatigue and morning sickness.  I also had some good craving for beets (high in folic acid) for a week or two, so I at least feel good that I am eating well and know how to listen to my body smile.gif I love the Nourished Kitchen, and I really wanted to do the "Beautiful Babies Course!"  Did you like it? How was it?

We also do a GAPS-y/SCD-ish/more traditional to us type of thing here (the kids and I) since we're trying to disappear quite a few food allergies and intolerance issues (DS1 is highly allergic to quite a few things, DS2 and I have more intolerance issues although he's the healthiest out of us all it appears).

How far along are you? I'm trying to remember when I started getting the all day nausea with my other two and I think it was around 5 or 6 weeks (I'm 4W3D now). I'm wondering if I'll get as sick this time and will be pleasantly surprised if I don't. It would be great if changing my diet helps with MS.

I have been playing around with the idea of adding a little teff back into my diet though. Meh, I dunno, we'll see...

The Babies Course was fantastic! I actually haven't even finished it yet (I've got 2 or 3 more lessons to go over). We moved towards the end of the course, and life kind of became a whirlwind and I just never felt like I had the time to sit down and complete a lesson. Now that I'm pregnant, I feel I need to make the time, there is so much information and all of it is beneficial! Kristin really went over everything you could possibly think of regarding pregnancy, healthy children, healthy adults in general, etc.

 

I'm actually experiencing symptoms earlier than I did with our first pregnancy, but so far it isn't terrible. I had some uncomfortable nausea last night that kept me up for awhile, but I just sipped water and ate two almonds (seriously... just two) and started feeling better. Today I took FCLO and about 25 pumps of Magnesium Oil rubbed into my skin. I've actually been needing to order more FCLO, although I'll admit it can be a bit hard to swallow (the taste is not exactly appetizing and I love fish).

ugh, moving sucks!

And it really is amazing what can be done with nutrition.  When I was younger I was a little skeptical, but after my experience with DS, it seems so obvious.  I feel like my symptoms last time were more intense, but they went away pretty quickly too.  Or maybe, it just seemed better since I did throw up a lot at first, so mild nausea just wasn't so bad!  Both pregnancies I have felt symptoms very early on.

 

i hear you about the FCLO...although I haven't been unusually averted to it.  I do take a shot of orange juice right after it, and that helps.  I think next time i am going to try the butter oil/clo blend and see if that's easier to take.  i need to find some magnesium oil...right now i am just trying to take some salt baths.

 

but it's all for a good cause!

I should have clarified, I do have the FCLO/BO blend. It probably does taste a little bit better than the regular FCLO, but it's still predominately fishy tasting. I find that if I let it sit out for a few minutes to soften up, it's much easier to swallow (if it's straight out of the fridge it's too thick and just... blech). I usually have to chase it with milk or kombucha.

 

As for the magnesium oil, you can make your own out of magnesium flakes (like the kind you'd put in your bath)! Here is the recipe: http://www.cheeseslave.com/how-to-make-magnesium-oil/. I purchased the smallest bag of Ancient Minerals Magnesium Flakes (around $10.00) and it's lasted me forever - of course I haven't always been faithful about using it daily.

So today I started noticing that I get to feeling some nausea and general crappiness if I don't eat protein every few hours. I need to get some eggs and a few other quick-bite type things that I can have ready to go when I need them. I just had some cooked off turkey and chicken in the house today for a quick protein fix so I've been eating that but I don't want to OD on meat.

I've noticed this too, mamacatsbaby. During the day, the nausea isn't so bad because I try to eat protien often enough, but I've been getting uncomfortable nausea at night (when I really just want to be sleeping). Last night I craved an egg salad sandwich, and was SO close to getting up to make one, but the thought of standing over the stove waiting for eggs to boil... then waiting for them to cool off... then mashing them... adding mayo, mustard, etc.... well it was just too much work at 10 at night. So I'll make it today to prepare for this evening. :D

I didn't even think about it being thicker than just the CLO on it's own!

Thanks for the rec on the oil (and making it!)!

 

Now that my fatigue is passing (for the moment...or I just mixed up the decaff and regular this morning), I am definitely going to make snacks to have on hand for those middle of the night moments!

I am 6 weeks along today and the nausea is definately here. I have been taking a cue from the other mamas here and eating protein regularly, which seems to help during the day, but first thing in the morning is still...problematic. I find that applesauce works well at settling things a bit--better than crackers and less messy.

I'm with ya! Its gotten a tad better now though. I just feel dizzy, tired, and unmotivated. One thing that helped me with feeling sick first thing in the morning, was every time I got up to pee in the night which was about 2-3 times, I would eat a saltine cracker. And then in the morning when I woke up i'd have another one and let it settle. It didn't help completely, but it took the edge off! Just thought I'd share smile.gif

Alright - 4w2d today and I feel pregnant - woohoo! LOL

 

Not really jumping for joy here....I'm dizzy, exhausted and struggling to eat. Not super nauseous, but NOTHING sounds good and I have crazy heartburn. Everything makes me feel gaggy.

 

Oh - and the cramps. Geez - the cramps have been nearly every day for a week now. I don't remember this from any other pregnancy. Maybe it means there's two in there? (I so, so want twins!)

Mmmm, egg salad sounds soooooo good right now. I just made guac and stuck it in the fridge to let the flavors meld and I have eggplant slices sitting in some salt water to make eggplant "chips" with. Going to dip those in the guac and then look for more foodstuffs eat.gif .

I hear you ladies about the cramping. I don't remember so much of it with my other two pregnancies. Sure some but this is a little more ouchy it seems. I'm tired but not completely beat, although I have been falling asleep with the children the last few days. And I keep dropping crap eyesroll.gif .

My breasts are very tender, which makes me nervous because they feel this way when AF is due..... I'm also very tired constantly and in bed by 8.30pm!
