Me too - and sometimes it looks like my face is made of patent leather, buffed to a high shine!  A couple of weeks ago I started skipping moisturizer and just using a nourishing toner, which helped but not enough.  For the last several days I've been diluting my toner with water and that seems to really be helping me cut down the oil.  Yes, still greasy but nowhere near as bad.

 

btw I got a real kick out of reading all of your responses above - so glad to know I'm not alone!

this thread totally made my night last night.

 

i'm getting hints of acne around my hairline and chin and forehead.  but still not greasy.  but i have DRY skin.  and hair.  like i don't remember to wash my face often and never had to worry about it dry.  or hair.  i never wash my hair more than once a week, and often only use water.

 

pregnancy totally changes that up though!!!  my hair's been getting greasier and faster, and i actually am using stuff on it to get it clean!  i'm thinking of using honey on my face again (it worked well for non-drying but removing grease last pregnancy)- http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Simple-Honey-Facial
 

no glow here!!!

 

fatigue and worry, YES!!!

Strangest nausea trigger: my cell phone, and pregnancy clothes.  Seriously.  Every time I pick up my phone, I get sick. And, while I don't fit into anything, I can't put on maternity pants without wanting to barf.  I find my biggest triggers are the things that are present when I first get sick. When I was pregnant with my first I got MS while at a saddle making class - and for the rest of my pregnancy I couldn't even touch leather without wanting to gag (I seriously had to wear cloth shoes and when I rode my horses I usually rode bareback or had someone else saddle for me and rode with gloves.) Anyway, the weekend I started feeling sick this time I spend a lot of time in bed playing on my phone, and pulled out a shipment of maternity clothes that I had ordered with my last pregnancy, but only got after I miscarried, so had never opened.  Now I can't look at them without being sick.  I seriously hope it passes, because sweatpants and DHs t-shirts are not making me feel awesome either!

This is our third and my husband still doesn't get it! :-P

My husband seems to think I shouldn't feel anything because I'm only 6wk 2day. I think he figures I shouldn't feel anything until I'm visibly pregnant.

I think that's a common husband thing. I have to keep saying to my husband - HORMONES! It's not the little pea in my stomach. It's the hormones it produces that cause the symptoms.

OMG my DH obviously comes from a different planet.  He's constantly telling me I'm "delicate" and is doing 50-75% more than he did before (and faster).  I think it's cute - gives him some purpose that feels like it's linked to baby.  He is SO excited... Mr. baby fever over here.

Pretty sure mine is just giving me a hard time. He knows better and he does just about everything when he's home at night and on Sundays. smile.gif

i totally second Motivated Mama on this!!!

 

my husband is still confused that i become OTHER (invaded by that person who needs all my energy to come into life) even though we've done this once or twice.  seriously, he seems to remember pregnancy so romantically!  oh well!

 

i remember my first ultrasound at 21 weeks w/ my first pregnancy, my husband was in tears and looked at me and said 'oh THAT'S why you've been so tired and overwhelmed!'  he just can't see the baby and so it's not as real to him.  NOT ALL DADDY'S ARE LIKE THAT.  but mine is.  last pregnancy he looked at me at 8 1/2 months yikes2.gifand said 'aaaaaaaagh!  we're gonna have a baby in the next month!' i was like 'ugh, i've got one.  it's right here.  it's pretty much the person i spend the most time w/.' and he was like 'aaaaaaaagh!  there's a person inside you!!!'  :lurk do tell me more, dear husband of mine!!!!  duh.gif

We have the added mc factor. It may be extra hard for him to wrap his head around because we've been pregnant plenty. It just never resulted in a person. But this feels different. It's good. But we're both trying to wrap our heads around it. I keep getting paranoid when my symptoms are mild. I want to feel 1000% pregnant 1000% of the time. Heh. Never wanted to feel horrible more in my life.

So this is weird.. in the morning my breasts don't really hurt but by the end of the day they feel like they're been punched repeatedly. Anyone else?

Johanna - I had that a few weeks ago... It's like... where'd my boob soreness go?  As for end of day soreness, maybe you're bra is a bit light on support? 

 

Your 1000% references gave me a good laugh... totally understandable!  We had 1mc (my only pregnancy) and as a result my DH was very hesitant toward attaching himself to this current pregnancy.  I told him that we can't live life in "what-if" land.  I certainly can't if I'm going to be growing a baby.  This one deserves as much positivity as we can give it... not going to let previous occurrences taint the present.  And that was that!  He hadn't realized his behavior and was really embarrassed when he did.  Ever since then there's been no looking back.

 

Wishing you the best of luck for 9 full months and 1000% certainty!

My husband has been kind of dumb about pregnancy and miscarriage and has said some pretty callous things without thinking before. A lot of "but you're not REALLY pregnant yet" and "Are you gonna make this one stick this time?" But most of the time he's an angel. Last night I think it finally sunk in for him because I couldn't get out of bed ALL DAY and he said, "you must be building something really important today." And he left me a note on the fridge this morning that said " Thank you for climbing a mountain in your sleep for me"

I've been feeling like crap the last 2 days, don't want to do anything. I should get out walking more, but I'm just SO TIRED!

8 weeks and having a rough day...tired, sick and emotional.

My nipples hurt more sometimes then at others.
post #135 of 186
I 'm feeling less pregnant. I think the baby may not be growing anymore. Fewer symptoms + measuring smaller than thought at an u /s have me worried.

OtherSoul: i'm so happy you are feeling like crap! winky.gif

I hope to return with good news one of these days!

w/ my first, we had had a m/c before. i think that's why the ultrasound made it REAL.

 

i had a really hard time believing pregnancies were going to 'stick' for the first 3 babies.  i had a real revelation w/ my first that i had to start LOVING this person even if i lost them....  number 4 and 5 not so much so.  this one, i'm scared again.  i don't think i realized how much i wanted this one!!!

 

and having a Dr label me 'threatened miscarriage' from the outset was like a slap in the face.  

 

so sorry OtherSoul!

 

and OregonMoon.  so sorry.  waiting for good new from you.  really really *crossing fingers, sticking out tongue and wishing till purple*

For those of you who are having some heavy-duty queasiness, I found something that is helping.  I added B6 (25mg 2x daily) to my routine and it's making a significant difference.  Am I immune to gastro-ickiness? No... but I am not as grossed out by all the food smells.  The rolling queasiness is at least 75% better than it was.  It took about 12 hours from my first dose to start seeing an improvement.

I just tried the Earth Mama Angel Baby morning wellness tea and it was amazing. My nausea was gone for at least a couple hours, which was a blessing. I'll have to try out the B6, thank you!

The B6 helps a lot, I remembered from my first pregnancy and started right away. Also picked up Seabands yesterday, and maybe it's a placebo effect but I felt almost normal (morning sickness wise anyway) today!

This is my 3rd day on the B6.  I split the 50 mg dose into two 25mg doses morning and evening for better absorption.  I feel radically different and almost zero sickness.  It even seems as if my fatigue is a bit less (although I still get winded doing simple things).  Overall: fantastic!
