How are you feeling? - Page 2

post #21 of 121

NORMAL!! I swear, my early pregnancy sign should be that I DON'T feel pregnant. Every month since I started cycling again, I was convinced I was pregnant. This was the first month I just felt period-y. I only tested because I was at the dollar store... And who can leave the dollar store without a cheapie test? Actually, I am feeling more tired and have ZERO appetite but I'm thinking that could just be that I'm still in SHOCK!!

I also feel totally normal! My boobs don't even feel different yet, which was my first symptom last time. My period won't even be late for another two or three days, so that may be why.

Wow Shying Violet that is so scary and I hope you take it very seriously!

I have no symptoms yet either, which is unusual for me so I find it a little concerning. Good to hear I'm not the only one. I'm taking my vitamins though, and Ive found that helps with nausea

My first pregnancy sign was allergies too! Sneezing, itchy throat, runny nose. I haven't had any allergies since making major dietary shifts over the last 6 mo and literally a week after conception they started.
Otherwise I am just tired and ravushing hungry & bloated. I totally feel pg at just 6 weeks

Oh, dear. The hormones have started. I've been having big, blubbering breakdowns on the regular. My DP and I are getting married in a month, and everything is just happening so fast and I'm freaking out! bawling.gifmecry.gifhappytears.gif

Well, my heart is racing (like getting out of bed feels like I just got home from a 3mi run), which is why I even took a pregnancy test in the first place.  That, and the cheez-it crackers my kids are eating smell SO BAD.  Gag.  Gross, dude.

I have been having the most vivid dreams the past week.  Twice I've had a very disturbing dream where my husband and I kill someone and then just go on like it didn't happen.  I then have the hardest time going back to sleep.  With my crazy dreams, waking to pee twice at night, and my toddler still waking once a night I'm so tired.  I'm really trying to get out of the house in the morning to work out or just take a walk to help me get some more engery.

Serious nausea. I've been taking Unisom + b6 at bedtime, and I feel pretty good until around 2-2:30 in the afternoon when the nausea kicks in. I'm going to ask for Zofran soon.

SwanLake, I have also been having really vivid and strange dreams.  Last week I dreamed S, DD1, and I were all escaping from a cult, and last night I dreamed that I miscarried this baby 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

and she came out into the palm of my hand, with her tiny umbilical cord.  I looked at her and my heart dropped but then the dream went on like nothing had happened. 

 

 

 

That should say warning, graphic triggers, but I couldn't change the warning text

My heart racing made me take a test too! And yes to the smells...unfortunately I work in a diner and the smell of coffee is KILLING me.

I've been having vivid dreams too, and I can remember a dream every morning which is unusual for me.

I'm getting married in a month too! It is soooo stressful!

I'm not enjoying the bloated feeling, ugh. Other than that I've just got a little lower back pain, but I'm feeling pretty good so far. I remember last time I had some awesome food and smell aversions plus lots of nausea so I'm not looking forward to that starting up. Trying to enjoy feeling good while it lasts.

 

And DD (27 m.o.) is still waking up at night most times and while sometimes I can get her back to sleep in 5-10 min, other times she keeps waking up over a 1-1.5 hr period so I either stay in her room or have to keep getting up. I feel like a slacker mom but we've started leaving a pillow on the floor of our room for her (our door is aways open anyway and she can open hers) and she comes in and sleeps there till morning when she wakes. I don't even wake up most nights when she does it. It's probably a bad habit to start but I don't want to get sleep deprived with everything else going on and she's happy.

My hips are already getting twingy, so I'm thinking about seeing a chiropractor.  Still stuffy.  Don't really feel pregnant otherwise, although I'm already showing.  dizzy.gif  I guess that's what happens when you have pregnancies back to back and a diastasis recti.

 

Ola, the pillow on the floor sounds like a brilliant solution.

Congratulations! Hope the wedding goes well.

I still feel totally normal and it's freaking me out a little. My boobs feel a tiny bit heavy, but they haven't gotten hard, which was how I knew I was pregnant last time before my period was even late.

My nipples are a little sore. DD has a stomach bug and nursed practically all night, so that probably has something to do with it. 

post #39 of 121

I have sore, heavy breasts and occasional cramps/twinges/sensations on my lower left side.  I'm craving burgers and junk food in general, but I think that's more my stress coping mechanism than actual cravings.  I'm also experiencing a bit of bloat, but it could very well be diet related winky.gif
