Pregnancy Symptoms

post #1 of 186
Thread Starter 

What is everyone experiencing?

 

I have had waves of nausea, nothing bad.  I never threw up with my first, so maybe I will swing that again.  I immediately (after missed period) started to toss and turn and have a hard time getting comfortable sleeping.  At the beginning of my sixth week, my breasts are now sore.  I am still nursing my 3 year old, but pushing her to wean.  The crazy/ disturbing dreams kicked in last night.  I woke up at 2:30, got out of bed to drink some tea and took Bach's Rescue Remedy because the dream I had was pretty bothersome.  Back to sleep an hour so so later...

Well I am only 3w4d today, so not too much to report yet! I do have sore bb's increased cm, and insane bloating! By the end of the day I appear to be around five months pregnant redface.gif. This is my 8th pregnancy and fifth baby hopefully, so I'm sure I'll be showing soon enough, but seriously the bloating is crazy! I had hypermesis with my last babe , I'm really hoping to avoid that this time around, but otherwise, bring on the symptoms!!

Four weeks along here and not too many symptoms.  My nipples are getting a bit sore and pretty soon it will be unbearable if it's anything like the last three times.  Still nursing my nearly 2 year old, but I'm not sure how much longer we will continue.  I'm not a tandeming mama :)

Goodness, how could I fail to mention the bloating!  Yep.  I feel ya.

I am around 5 weeks and incredibly nauseated and tremendously tired. I have three other kids and I have to teach dance so it's been super hard.

5 weeks today and there's sore boobs (but not terrible), increased hunger, decreased stamina, slight bloating (can't suck that belly in anymore! lol), and headaches if I don't stay incredibly hydrated!

I think that's about it :) Keeping my fingers crossed that the nausea stays away!!! :)

I'm slightly nervous about the lack of bad symptoms, so am testing every morning to assure hcg levels are steadily increasing. So far so good! :)

~5 wks I think, but I was on Microgestin, so who really knows.  I'm going to go with a later timeframe to avoid induction-happy providers. The reason I tested yesterday was because my period was late (not the biggest surprise, I have weird cycles) and I had to get up and pee three times during Catching Fire, and the woman behind me had popcorn that smelled really awful to me.  I was nauseous this afternoon/early evening, have been belching like a dragon, my hands are hot, and everything smells bad.  My symptoms were pretty weak with my last PG/miscarriage except some forgetfulness around 8wks.  But in the first two I had some pretty rough nausea starting around 6-7 weeks - bad enough the first time that I was on Zofran for a few weeks.  Don't feel like I can complain though, as my best friend had hyperemesis throughout the entire pregnancy twice.

Hi, 4w4d here - definitely bloated! It seems to progress throughout the day. My tatas are a little swollen, and I've been doing some tossing and turning at night, but overall I feel GREAT so far.

 

Walking on sunshine, people! Hopefully this will be the theme of the next several months...

I'm 4w3d. I can smell car exhaust from a mile away, boobies a little sore, a bit more tired today than usual, and I was momentarily grossed out by the turkey soup in the fridge today. But none of the bloating I had last time - woohoo!

 

I'm also enjoying my "pregnancy personality," which is the way I am when my estrogen is high. I have all this patience and empathy. I'm so much nicer to be around!

I am certainly confused about this time around... with my first ds I found out I was pregnant way later, about 8 weeks. This time I found out at 3 weeks and I had symptoms before I even tested. I am now 4 weeks and my breast hurt, I am irritable, constipated and sooo thirsty. Oh yeah, and I cant forget the feeling of lacking a few brain cells either. :/ I'm shocked by how pregnant I actually feel because I never felt like this with my first LO.

My first 3 PG we were heavily TTC so I tested at a tracked 10dpo. This time I was on the pill, have no idea how or when I ovulated, and only treated because of the symptoms. Peeing crazy buckets, drinking constantly, seriously nauseous all the freaking time, needing naps I don't have time to take, and belching worse than my first grader. Usually those symptoms haven't started for me until around 6wks, so I suspect the LMP date might be off a bit. But it's in my favor as I cooked my last to almost 42wks so I'm going to go with it.

I am not even four week pregnant but I do have symptoms.  I had cramping starting at 7dpo.  I think that must have been implantation and or things stretching out.  My breasts hurt and feel huge!  I have had some diahrea(normally I have the opposite problem!) and really bad smelly gas.  I have a very sensitive nose already but it seems that it is even more sensitive.  I felt a bit sick today when at the groccery store and also when brushing my teeth.  I have no energy also.  I had a dark positive at 11dpo(today) so I am hoping that combined with all my symptoms that this baby sticks.  If it is like my other pregnancies I will start throwing up soon and this will continue until delivery(or near it).

6 weeks 2 days. I have always had immediate symptoms right at 4 weeks, and tend to know I'm pregnant right from the start. Not so this time. With having so many babies I tend to bloat and not fit into my clothes pretty quickly. Again, that's not happening. It's been making me think a possible MC coming. I did finally start to feel a bit nauseated last night and today, so we'll see.

So, I don’t know if I’m on to something or not, but you ladies may want to try it!
I read somewhere that the first commandment of early pregnancy is, “Thou shalt not have an empty stomach.”
I’ve noticed, on cue, that I start feeling woozy and nauseated as my stomach nears empty. A couple hours after I eat I start to feel blah. I eat, feel better.
So, the last few days I’ve been eating smaller portions and eat every hour-two and it’s not gotten bad at all really! I’ll prob. put on some weight b/c of it…need to get better about the portions, but it’s worth it to not be sick! :D

 

Oh, also lots of B vitamins!

Works for me too. I eat constantly during early pregnancy.

Ugh, I'm feeling absolutely terrible at night, starting around 6pm. Doesn't matter if I'm sitting, standing, horizontal, propped up, big dinner, no dinner, nibbling ... ugh. I'm just painfully bloated and nauseous - TMI no amount of belching resolves it, no crackers or cereal nibbled, no ginger ale ... nothing. Not even my go-to helper from DD2 of Gaviscon is making life easier so far.  I'm grateful to not be vomiting, but in some ways I almost wish I could and just be done with the feeling for a while instead of feeling constantly at the precipice.

This is getting hard to hide from our kids, who are worried that I've been sick for several nights now - we had a lot of deaths in the family over the past few yrs and sickness is scary to them.

Hoping it just means that it's a good, solid embryo getting settled in, as I certainly didn't feel this rough with my MMC PG.

If it makes you feel any better with my first I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was about 8 weeks along. I had no symptoms until about two weeks after that. This time I tested so early (3 weeks, 5 days) due to the symptoms.

Twopeaed, my naturalistic doc told me the same thing (she's had 4) and said you need to snack because the nausea is from low blood sugar.

Jessica--I'm enjoying my personality, too! That was my first symptom almost a week ago (I'm about 4.5 weeks now). I've been more efficient and "on the ball" at work.

Other than that, I only get a wee but nauseous every 2-3 days, my boobs have been somewhat sore the whole time, some period-like achey cramps, and the fatigue is starting to set in.

Edit: also not a huge appetite. Nothing sounds disgusting but the only thing that sounds good is pickled/bitter (marinated mushrooms, curries, pickled cauliflower, etc). The biggest tip I had that I was pregnant was when I found myself sipping juice out of the pickled veggies mix jar. Literally almost finished the juice and thought, "well that's maybe kinda weird..."

I'm on a trip with just my husband (5 kids are with grandma for a week!) and I'm now officially deep in the throes of morning sickness. We took the red eye to NY, and I forgot to pack snacks. I just threw up in La Guardia airport. But I'm about to get on a cruise ship for a week and morning sickness is not going to prevent me from enjoying the food!

Ooo! Have fun Becca!
