What are your symptoms so far? - Page 3

I'm still a little crampy as well.  Although it doesn't feel like any specific (as in, what in the heck is going on down there?!)  I'm noticing that I have to eat or else I start getting shaky/hypoglycemic feeling.  Anyone else get the crazy fatigue like "I'm too tired to even sleep"?  I swear I lay my head down and cannot shut off my brain.  Can't wait for that appointment on Monday...

I am only 4w1d but I started noticing symptoms just over a week ago.  Sometimes I have a mild headache that feels ever so slightly nauseating.  I've been really bloated, and I get heartburn sometimes.  It feels like my digestive system is just not working properly.  My breasts are only a little tender, and I haven't been sleeping well.  I am also having cramping now and then.  I suppose if I felt totally crappy I would know for sure that I am pregnant, but I feel pregnant enough for now.

I am 3 weeks 1 day, I got my BFP on Wednesday afternoon. I have been watching the lines get darker each day, which is comforting. I know it is so early, I could still just bleed and would never have even known I was pregnant, but I feel hopeful and confident. I would expect AF in a few days... (I could have O'd a few days earlier, because I wasn't temping consistently. LNMP was Sept. 20th) 

 

That being said, I have that familiar "gotta eat now so get out of my way" feeling that I remember from before. Like an instantaneous emptiness. Also, my boobages are slightly sore, similar to PMS, but way fuller. My gut was enormous for a day or two (my old maternity jeans were the only comfortable thing besides exercise pants), and now I am feeling less bloated but still like I don't want anything tight on my tummy.

 

Last week, in fact it must have been around the day of conception, I got a really nauseated, dizzy feeling that lasted about an hour. I feel like it could have been related.

 

This morning when I woke up early, I had to ask my husband for a glass of water and some animal crackers because I was feeling empty bordering on nauseated. I had bad M/S last time and I am not looking forward to it, although a little nausea would let me know things are happening... 

 

I have been super tired, but also not sleeping well due to having a sick kiddo, so it could just be that.

 

I have stopped eating sugar and am eating lots of small meals. I actually lost a few pounds this week, although I think I am eating around maintenance calories. I am about 25 pounds over my usual weight, which is about 20 pounds higher than my healthy weight. I really need to keep my weight gain in the healthy range...

 

Edited to add: I have had heartburn several nights over the past week, too, usually after Mexican food (my favorite).

Yesterday I was riding my bike to work and realized that 1) my little bike computer that shows me my speed was broken and 2) i had forgotten my prenatal vitamin.

 

Those two things were overwhelming enough at the time to make me have to stop biking and sit on the pavement and cry for a couple minutes. Luckily my husband was with me and comforted me through my relative insanity. Later when I expressed worries about not feeling "pregnant enough" he reminded me that I stopped and cried due to a lack of vitamins that morning.

 

 

My symptoms include feeling overwhelmed, moody and irritable, and like I want to cry for no reason!!

I read this about 20 minutes ago and thought, "I must not be quite there yet."  Then I found myself fighting back tears in the hotel lobby while watching a marine on TV carry a boy who had broken his prosthetic leg in a race.  He piggy-backed him all the way across the finish line.  And then I nearly cried for a Little Cesar's commercial.  (Yes, the dog food.)    

 

Oh, I'm there.  Solidarity, sister!

This is adorable. It made me laugh, and then I teared up a little while I was laughing, lol.

 

I'm also experiencing the emotional symptoms. I cry easily these days, and I'm also crankier than usual. I got really annoyed at our pile of dishes yesterday and then once I finished washing those I went on a bit of a rampage, at 11PM, cleaning and sweeping and vacuuming while ranting and raving about what a pig stye this place is. It seemed perfectly rational at the time.

 

I've been feeling lower abdominal fullness and pressure, as well as higher bloat and gassiness. And the sudden hunger that hits out of nowhere and leaves me with a burning empty pit of a stomach. Very very mild nausea, which I hope doesn't get too bad down the road. And slightly sore boobs. All very mild symptoms so far, at 4w1d.

 

Oh, but the pregnancy acne has already hit. It was actually one of my first signs that something was up. I am prone to breakouts, but it has been ages since I've gotten the deep, painful, cystic bumps along my jawline which take forever to form a head. I think the last time I got them was when I was pregnant with DD, actually. That time the acne only stuck around through the first trimester, so I hope this is short lived.

Oh my gosh...my morning sickness settled in yesterday and I feel awful. greensad.gif If there's a healthy baby in there, I'll take it...but I want to whine a little first. This is gross.

I'm there with the crying too! I discovered who Honey Boo Boo was the other day, and cried at a you tube clip of her jumping in the mud. She just looked so happy that it made me cry. Ridiculous, I know!

So for those of you who have already had a second (or third or more) pregnancy, did you find that your pregnancy symptoms came earlier and went away earlier than with your first? A friend of mine just had her second baby a few months ago, and she said that her symptoms definitely showed up earlier than with her first pregnancy, but by 9 weeks her nausea was completely gone. I am praying that the same is true for me (or maybe it could even go away sooner!).

 

What do you ladies think? :D

Well, with DS1 MS hit me like a ton of bricks, just out of the blue around 5 or 6 weeks and lasted until about 20 weeks or so. Twas horribleness cold.gif . With my DS2 it started up kind of slow in the 5th or 6th week then lasted once again until about 19 or 20 weeks I believe; maybe less. Still pretty crappy feeling that whole time. Maybe slightly less sick than with DS1, slightly. This time around my diet is a lot different than with the other two and so I'm hoping I'm finally getting what I need so I won't be so all-day-nauseous-with-hit-by-a-damn-semi-exhaustion this time around. Thus far I've been able to escape the queasies that have come about fairly easily and I'm not completely wiped out. Tired yes, I've got a lot going on! But doing just fine. I'm 5 weeks today so we'll see how it goes!

I'm 7 weeks
I've had nausea, full breasts, some cramping, some headaches and dizziness.
Last night I had the worst bout yet of morning sickness.  I thought I was goig to vomit.  I then thought maybe I'd feel better if I did and wished I would, but I HATE vomiting so couldn't.  Finally got back to sleep and was better in the morning.  It was worse than any time I had it before with any other pregnancy.

One of the nice things about pregnancy  is the nice hair and nail growth...my hair has been looking spectacular! .....but the hair on my face is growing really fast too Sheepish.gif I HATE that!

6w5d here. My symptoms are getting more obnoxious; the nausea isn't too bad, but nothing looks good a lot of the time and I'm tired and crabby. I also seem to be moving directly from not hungry to that stage after hungry where you can't make decisions about food anymore and are crabby and unreasonable; I am going to try better planning and eating every three hours regardless and see if that helps. Also, I'm feeling clingy (poor DH) and I get weepy easily. The joy. eyesroll.gif

6wks 2days today. Last night my 3yo DD woke up crying and I startled awake, and holy crap did I feel nauseous. I had to stay up and watch a couple of movies until I started feeling better. I tried eating two almonds and they just seemed way too dry in my mouth and did not seem to be very effective (I know it was only 2, but I couldn't eat anymore, lol). So I sipped water, watched movies, and eventually felt well enough to go back to sleep.

 

This morning when I woke up, I wasn't too nauseous at all, but I didn't really want to eat. It totally sucks knowing that you have to eat or else you'll start to feel awful, but you don't really feel like eating anything. So I made eggs and cereal and managed to eat most of it. It did help, but now all I want to do it sit around in our bedroom and watch movies and clean up. Ugh, I hope this goes away soon... I'm a SAHM/WAHM, and I really don't want DD to feel like I don't want to play with her anymore. It's just hard to get motivated... I'm sure many of you can relate!

LOL well yesterday I thought it might be a good idea to have cold apple cider with coffee ice cream... yeah... lol

post #59 of 95
@MayasMama: Littles are actually pretty forgiving, understanding, and sympathetic when they see us so sick. When I was PG with DS2 I remember being worried that DS1 would be so mad at me for not being able to do one thing or another but even if we were just laying together watching a show, listening to music, just whatever, it was cool b/c we were just hanging together. She'll be ok smile.gif .

Ooooh, ice cold apple cider sounds absolutely incredible right now, OMG. And there's no way in hell I'm leaving the house to go get some. Thanks a lot Murph angry.giflol.gif .
