I think today might be the day I get caught up on dishes, some of which have been hanging around for far far too long

post #2 of 68

I hear ya.  I hope this weekend I will get caught up on...well...everything.  I've been sooo tired at night by the time I get home from work and put my son to bed (or I tell DH to do it, heh), I'm just DONE.

post #3 of 68

I am absolutely dead tired today. I have gotten up to fix breakfast and shifted from the couch and back to bed and that is it. I really wanted to take the kids on a nature walk today (the first nice day we have had in a week!) so I am making myself get that done today. I am so thankful I actually have a weekend. Last weekend DH was gone for his military reserve weekend so it was just one big long long long week.

 

GISDiva, I couldn't fathom working right now. I can barely keep things going at home with two little ones as it is! Get some rest this weekend, catching up is overrated.winky.gif

Alright, you've convinced me.  Your case is too strong to argue with. sleepytime.gif

I have been chatting on FB with a friend who is feeling broken after two miscarriages are terrified about a third. I thought there was a preg and birth loss board here, but now I can't find it. I don't want to send her anywhere tic yet, just healing. Ideas?
post #6 of 68
Definitely send her to the pregnancy and loss boards (I'm not sure why you can't see them- I was just over there). The people there were (and continue to be) a lifesaver for me. The TTC after loss board is the most active, but there's still a lot of support on the regular pregnancy loss boards. Also, she'll need to sign in before she can read posts.

Thanks coffee, I finally found it after I signed in

I was just going to say that they are only visible to you after signing in.

Yeah, that's to help protect posters.

My dad leaves in the afternoon. Just found out via fb that his mom fell and broke her pelvis. greensad.gif He doesn't know yet. At least he lives near them. I haven't been out there (SoCal) in several years and don't know when I can make it. greensad.gif

I've barely been eating this week. :/ I think it's just from being sick. Not that I've eaten great stuff when I have, but it's not much regardless! Is everyone else still in hungry first tri mode?
post #10 of 68
My kid's gmpa just yelled at them for yelling, "papa!" when he came home from the store. Wtf?! Why are you people asking for your GK to come here if you're going to yell at them for being excited to see you?!

We're staying in a hotel next time. :/
post #11 of 68

Sorry banana.  :(  That would upset me, too.  I would love to stay at a hotel when I visit my inlaws.

Carmen - I think moving while pregnant if you don't have to go to far is much better.  Easier to unpack.  I'm hoping we can get a loan and get into the house we have been looking at since we moved here, but it is only 20 minutes away, so it wouldn't be too big a deal.

 

12 weeks yesterday here.  Getting excited about feeling the baby move possibly starting next week.  thumb.gif  New OB appt. on Friday and we'll see what u/s's he wants.  I felt so much better after canceling my u/s appt. from the other OB, it was an hour long one and hoping to have shorter ones like with my DD.  She came out perfect and last OB just look at the heart,etc. and what he could see was fine, so I'm hoping, hoping, hoping for 5-10 minute u/s's instead of exposing our child to an hour of it.

post #13 of 68
Yep, it would be a move about 20-25 minutes away smile.gif

Heather, I'm stIll hungry a lot but I seem to get full quickly and then feel nauseous. Yuk. I hope you start to feel better soon.

Farmer, I hope you get the house! Ad congrats on 12 weeks. I will hit it on Wednesday....
post #14 of 68

I had hope yesterday that I was turning a corner. I went for a run, got some stuff done around the house and hung out with some friends for dinner. I woke up today feeling good, made a big breakfast for everyone and promptly crashed! I could barely get up the energy to make lunch and then it was straight to bed for me. I have had ZERO energy all day, we have eaten out twice since Friday and I feel like such a worthless slug. I am scared to see how much weight I've gained at m first prenatal appointment in a couple of weeks. . I am so ready for the 2nd trimester so I can get back to my more frugal and healthy ways. sleepytime.gif If I feel like his tomorrow while DH is at work I don't know what I am going to do.

post #15 of 68
Totally hear you CrunchyMama! I always think I'm turning a corner when I have energy to run any errands or go the whole day without throwing up, but I've figured out that the harder I go during the "good" times, the worse I crash when my time is up. Sometimes putting forth less effort is not an option, but I always seem to pay for it.

I'm 13 weeks tomorrow- is that the start of 2nd tri or is 14? I've been going steadily uphill since the horror of 9 weeks, but I'm still not out of the woods with exhaustion and nausea. I hope we're all feeling better soon and this mythical "enjoyable" 2nd trimester exists!
post #16 of 68

Just over 11 weeks here.  Nausea has not been too bad recently, but now we've all come down sick with a cold, and DS just went to bed with a fever, poor guy.  Ugh, so much for enjoying my day off from work tomorrow.
 

post #17 of 68

We told our parents tonight!  (10 weeks)  We considered waiting longer ,but my mom will want to be here and since she lives 2500 miles away she needs time to save up money and leave time at work.  Everyone was excited for us.  :)  I was somewhat hesitant to tell them, but we would tell them if we had a loss, so why not let them share the joy.  

 

I wish I could shake these nerves.  I finally stopped spotting (knock on wood) at 9w5d.  No known cause, but I think it was a yeast infection and treating it as such is what finally stopped the spotting.  We had a nice OB visit on 9w4d where she did an ultrasound.  Baby was moving around and measured 9w with a heart rate of 180 (All within the range of "normal")  My boobs are still tender, I have low level nausea all morning/afternoon, I can sleep at any given moment...So why can't I let go of the anxiety and trust that all will be okay?  I did order a pregnancy yoga dvd today, and I have acupuncture this week, so that should help, but am I alone in the nervousness?

 

Anyway, my vent is over.  Thanks for reading :)  My husband is tired of listening to me.

I think 13 weeks is the start of the 2nd trimester :) Very exciting!! Do you feel like it's going quickly? I feel like this pregnancy is going way quicker than with my DD.

We are in the same boat. We've got the funk here and it's making us all pretty miserable. I have thrown up twice today, but not sure if it's the funk or more pregnancy-nausea. (It acted
like pregnancy-related, but I was hoping that was passing...).

Anyhow- I am fighting fire with fire as much as I can. I've neti potted 3 times today, I've taken 1000 mg (well, 1 g, I guess) vitamin C about every 2 hours, had three huge mugs of chamomile with lemon and honey, and took a long nap with DS this afternoon. I also did an Ayurvedic healing technique called oil pulling, if any of y'all are familiar. Basically I swished coconut oil in my mouth for 20 min before spitting it in the toilet. It is supposed to have marvelous short and long-term effects (it always whitens my teeth immediately!), but I have only done it a few times so can't attest to long-term. I also have a cotton ball with peppermint oil that I swab under my nose when my nose gets a bit foggy. Anyway, not sure what has done the trick or if it all has, but my sore throat is significantly better tonight, my breathing clearer, and my head has stopped pounding. Still going to keep it up until I'm well. I need to remember to do more of this stuff on a maintenance basis so I don't GET so sick.

Hope everyone gets to feeling better!!

I'm still stuffy but mostly better. I was soooo exhausted today, though!! And I'm trying to be available to help friends who are moving. I could barely do anything. :/ I'm going to go back tomorrow and hopefully can survive. Most friends don't know I'm pg so that makes it trickier!

Anyone feeling a bump when lying on your tummy? I'm finally feeling it! 12 weeks tomorrow. Exciting that things are growing well, but I'm not looking forward to losing my ability to lie on my stomach. eyesroll.gif

My 8yo is constantly asking, "when we're going to tell people about the b-a-b-y," in front of them. lol.gif He's sooo excited!
