How are you feeling? - Page 3
I'm exhausted too. I'm sleeping at least an hour more than usual each night and still wake up feeling like I was hit by a train. Then suddenly last night my body decided, at around 2am, that it was a good time to feel nauseous. I had to sleep sitting upright to feel better. But honestly, the more awful pregnancy symptoms I feel, the less I worry that I've miscarried, so bring 'em on!
Hi everyone! I thought I join and get some of this "I need to tell someone" out of me. We have been trying for a while and the last week or so I have been having dizzy spells and major headaches, I thought hey just test and see, and voila! The headaches are not fun, especially with an energetic 3 year old around.
This is true for me too. I'm alternating between queasy and starving, and eating helps the nausea.
I'm still not feeling pregnant except for the sniffles. I have some dizziness too but I'm pretty sure it's brain zaps from going off of zoloft. I tapered but maybe did it just a little too fast. I don't know if it's going to hit me like a ton of bricks or what. I had my HCG levels done because of early spotting and cramping and I've got good numbers. So who knows?
Aside from that, I'm starving, and mildly queasy..very thirsty, and absolutely exhausted. My nipples are also sore, and my breasts are popping out of my previously too big bra.
Eggs are really turning me off, and I normally eat them every.single.morning for breakfast. I'm lost now! I've just been eating chicken sausage and sprouted toast, because I can't eat cereal or things like that or I get super dizzy midmorning. I'm definitely a protein type!! Anybody have any ideas for protein rich breakfasts that don't include eggs?
I am HUNGRY. Besides that I feel great. My boobs are definitely getting harder and a bit sore, and my nipples are super sensitive (not in a good way, more in a don't-touch-me-there kind of way). I am getting tired a bit earlier at night, but I'm not regularly exhausted.
Violet, if you do much dairy, yogurt or cottage cheese can be a good protein option for breakfast. Also, I think steel cut oats have a decent amount of protein.
I'm feeling great! I'm not nauseous or tired but my breasts have gotten significantly bigger and more sensitive. Besides the boobs, I'm really not having any symptoms at all. Which can be a little worrisome but I'm trying to be thankful for the lack of symptoms instead of nervous about it. The only thing I'm having an aversion too is the smell of duck fat. I use it to cook with sometimes and now that I'm pregnant I don't like the smell much.
So MS has started and while I'm not throwing up all day I am laying around hoping I don't throw up most of the day. Really grateful I get to stay home. The hardest thing though is all the food aversions! Nothing sounds good to me except bread & cheese, and I have been gluten free for 5 months, paleo for 3 with very limited dairy and was feeling SO great before this. Now I don't know what to eat! I am basically eating lots of cheese, organic corn chips & tortillas, rice with butter, gf crackers, and I force myself to drink a cup of homeade chicken stock each morning. Any food suggestions? I need some help - gotta feed my 26 mo too!
I've been paleo for 2 years now. Are you not wanting to eat any meat? Salads have been sounding really good to me lately. What about avocado and eggs? Or sauteed kale? Maybe some homemade vegetable or chicken soup?
Exhausted as heck! We just got back last week from vacation in hawaii, so I was attributing it all to lengthened jet lag...until I took the test a few days later. In addition to needing naps several times a day (thank goodness I don't have to go back to teaching for a couple more weeks!), I'm hungry all the time and have to pee constantly. I am waking up 1-2x every night, and then lying awake for an hour or two each time. I was nauseous this morning first thing, but once I ate some breakfast it seemed to subside for the rest of the day. Made me think I was imagining it all, but I'm sure it will flare up more before too long. That's going to be a fun one--battling 8th graders while simultaneously feeling like my bladder is going to explode or I'm going to throw up on them. And of course, my classroom is the furthest away from the restrooms!
I've got more nausea going on lately, throughout the day. I have to just keep eating so it doesn't get bad. Also, cooking dinner and eating it don't sound appealing right now so I'll have to see if I can make some stuff that I can actually eat. Either that or we'll be doing a lot more takeout...
