*cravings (mostly for odd vegetables)
*RLP (like crazy on my left side, I'm afraid it might be cystic, I guess I'll have to check it out)
And so it begins...
7wks on the dot today and I've been experiencing MS something fierce. I feel awful. No vomiting yet, i've been trying desperately not to think about it and focus my mind on other things. Its along way to the bathroom anyway and I doubt I'd make it there.
Also I've been craving sweets a lot in the last week. I'm usually a salt fiend....by my old friend Mr. Potato Chip just isn't doing it for me.
I'm just over 4 weeks, but if I hadn't had a positive POAS, I guess I'd start to suspect. Definitely increase frequency urinating, and had to wake up to pee the last 2 nights- which I haven't done since pregnant w/ my daughter. Touches of nausea, which I never had first time around, but the fatigue, oh my, the fatigue. Super sharp sense of smell too. And though I haven't gained wait, I also have been experiencing this massive belly inflation that eventually goes away.
YES - but I started having symptoms (insomnia, insane dreams, cramping) impossibly early (like before 3 weeks) so that's no surprise. My boobs got ridiculously sore at 6 weeks and I'm having intermittent, mild nausea. The worst by far is the irritability and mood swings. Oh, and the RLP.
I'm still having cramping 6 weeks today, I had some super painful pinchy stuff going on a couple nights ago. I just visualize the placenta eating away at capillaries and setting up shop.
Guess what I got to deal with? I GOT A STOMACH BUG! Not cool. I thought it was nausea kicking in, but then it got painful, and I realized... yep, just like the norovirus symptoms I had the first week of january. >.< Thankfully it only lasted about 24 hours. Still having some mild nausea, and mighty food aversions, and lots of cravings.
I'm sorry, Sami!
I officially feel exquisitely awful today. The utter exhaustion has kicked in and it's awful. Doesn't help that I was awake from 12:30-4:30am (insomnia till 2:30, then my daughter was up from 2:30-4:30, awesome). I made my sweet husband get up with her at 5:30 (she's up between 5:30 and 6 every morning without exception) and slept in but I still feel just awful. I'm usually a high-energy person and can push through bad nights but I am wiped out beyond belief. And CONSTIPATED. God that part is awful. And MOODY. I'll be 8 weeks on Sunday and I think things are definitely getting serious. I need to eat but nothing sounds good. Nursing a ginger kombucha right now.
Felt sick from the early morning … have eaten only a few pieces of chicken and some fries … totally don't feel like eating anything at all. I think the 'morning' sickness is here. Yay. Not.
I can't even smell food. Had to skip out on a family dinner because I simply don't have the energy to sit there with all that food in front of me acting as if all is ok. When I feel sick to my stomach, the world stops. Last pregnancy I actually lost weight during the first trimester and I was already underweight. I think I'm gonna have an orange for dinner - that's about the only thing that sounds good right now.
Btw, my morning sickness never includes vomiting (only if I take a vitamin pill), but instead it's a constant feeling of sickness/cold/weakness that comes with eating food, so I try to stay away from food whenever possible. Does anyone else have it the same way?
