Thankfully no morning sickness for me.... Just tired and peeing 24/7. Looking forward to getting to know everyone and hope everyone is feeling great!
How is everyone feeling?
So far, so good, pregnancy-wise. No morning sickness or anything as of yet. I DO however have a nasty, awful cold that is kicking my hiney. Blegh. I'm afraid by the time I kick this I will be in the thick of first trimester yuckiness. We shall see. Trying to choke down nutritious food even though this cold makes everything taste like... nothing at all, actually.
Aw, I hope you can kick the cold quickly, APBTlover!
I'm 5 weeks + 4 days today and my main symptom has been tender breasts every day since 10 DPO. I had some other symptoms going on too that were making me not feel so great, but they disappeared a few days ago (crazy bloating, super hungry, and fatigue). Hoping it's no big deal that I had them and they disappeared. My successful pregnancies have made me so super sick, so I'm waiting with anticipation for the nausea to set in...
I'm only 4 weeks, 2 days, so I'm not feeling much of anything. I had some lower back aches and I think I'm peeing more than usual, but I'm also flushing fluids thanks to a nasty cold, so I think whatever pregnancy symptoms I might have had were drowned out by that.
I'm hoping I avoid the food aversions, metallic taste in mouth, and generally ickiness I had last time, but those will probably kick in around week 6, sadly.
Jenjy, you give me hope that the bloating and super hunger I'm dealing with right now is temporary!
LilyTiger, a cold too, huh? Here's hoping we both kick it soon! I can't tell if things like disinterest in food and the very real nausea I had last night are cold related or pregnancy related. Trying not to think too hard about it and just take it one day at a time. :)
I'm 5wks today (by that crazy OB reasoning which implies being pregnant 2 weeks before we are anywhere near conception!), and with my previous pregnancy, weeks 5-9 were the worst ones.
I'm 5 weeks, 2 days and am feeling great for the most part. My boobs still feel like they were run over by a truck, but either it's lessening or I'm just getting used to it. I have had a little nausea but oddly enough it's only really noticeable in the shower, teeth brushing has also become not a fun experience.
Anyone else having trouble sleeping? For the past week or so I have been waking up earlier and earlier every day. Yesterday I woke up at 4 am, super awake and couldn't get back to sleep. I was ready to crash at my desk at 4. Last night was better I was able to sleep until my normal waking time. Other than crashing early yesterday I haven't felt tired at all though. It's very strange.
redrockband, I had terrible insomnia in the first tri with my first pregnancy and I can already feel it starting this time. I was up a few times last night and I woke up this morning at 6:30 and was just ready to go. I remember last time being up at 4am and just staring out the window because I couldn't sleep. Blech. I hope it's not as pronounced last time.
It was the breast and nipple soreness that tipped me off that I was pregnant this time (last time it was when my coffee tasted so terrible that I had to spit it out)... general moodiness, low blood sugar stuff if I don't keep ahead of myself. And 2 nights in row of heartburny indigestion after dinner which I am really hoping isn't here to stay. And I wouldn't call it insomnia, but I am waking up a lot in the night and earlier than normal in the morning.
And through it all, I still feel blessed!!!!!
I am 5 weeks. I get bouts of exhaustion at random times throughout the day. I've been peeing like every thirty minutes. I can smell things a mile away. And I am hungry every two hours. However, when I go to eat, I only want a few bites. I have no nausea yet at all. I am typically hanging onto the toilet from missed period to 16+ weeks. The missing nausea concerns me because I also had none when I miscarried last time at 6 weeks. Crossing fingers that I just get lucky this time, or maybe this one is a boy? :)
I've been feeling pretty good! I'm much less anxious than I was when I was pregnant with my daughter. I am 5 weeks 6 days today (although that is truly and estimate because I wasn't really tracking my cycle) and I have a dating ultrasound on Monday. I am starting this pregnancy 25 lbs heavier than with my daughter, and this morning I gave up and wore maternity pants. I feel a little silly, but with the bloating by the end of the day I feel huge. Definitely already having nausea and breast soreness that comes and goes.
I'm feeling pretty good. Breasts are sore, but not tender - just achy. Lots more cramping than with my first, though it's more achy than period-like cramps. Other than that feeling good! Sending love to those who aren't doing so well - I've been there, I'm sure I'll be there again, and it's not much fun.
Morning sickness kicked in around 6 weeks with my daughter, so I'm trying to enjoy this small period of no symptoms while I can. It still makes me nervous not to feel anything, but that happened last time too, so I'll just try to hang in there and when the m/s starts I'll try to feel grateful. :)
One kind of big worry right now is this on and off pinching-like cramp pain near my right ovary. It is pretty sharp sometimes so I worry....my betas were only 84 on 12 dpo, so I am hoping this baby is settled in the right place and not in my Fallopian tube.
I am on progesterone supplements because I have had a couple of chemical pregnancies since ttc this summer. I remember back when I had baby 1 & then 2 I had such severe nausea especially baby 2. The nurse told me "I know it probably doesn't make you feel any better but this is a sign your hormone levels are high and means a strong, healthy pregnancy!" I didn't understand at all then, but I sure do now! Bring on the symptoms so I know my baby is okay.
Just starting on symptoms here...mostly just really tired and the sorest nipples ever! Definitely didn't have sore nipples/breasts with the last pregnancy and I'm nursing through this one so it's twice as rough. General food aversions have begun, but I am hoping I am not too nauseated this pregnancy. I just love food too much! Seeing an osteopath this pregnancy so hopefully I'll be able to avoid hip/sciatic pain this time around.
