What's everybody going through this week?

I am on day 18, and I am about to clean out all the food in the entire city. Even if I didn't keep track of my period, and didn't know I was pregnant yet, I would KNOW something was up with this hunger! I'm pretty tired, too.

Also, I feel this weird tightness in the middle of my abdomen that is new to me. I guess that would be my uterus growing? Dunno, but I find it comforting. I really am pregnant!

What about y'all? (Don't forget to tell how far along you are when you report, heehee.)

I'm 5 weeks, 4 days.

Hunger! Right now (10:30 a.m.) I am fighting the urge to go to Zaxby's (you Georgia mamas probably know what I'm talking about) for chicken and fries. Don't know if this is a battle I'm going to win. :

Tired...I've been dead asleep by 8 or 9 every night.

Smells are starting to bother me like from the fridge, but with dd I didn't get really sick until 7 or 8 weeks. We'll see how that goes.

And, as I said in the other thread, my belly's starting to pop out! My lower back's hurting already too.

I'm a bit tired and my appetite is strong. I've had a few brief waves of nausea, but nothing major yet. I'm hoping this doesn't get worse! I feel a bit bloated, but my stomach looks the same and my clothes fit just fine.

*some hunger but nothing sounds good
*tightness in abdomen
*poochy belly

How could I forget to mention that I'm forgetting everything too? LOL! Preggo brain has definitely set in.

At a little over 5 weeks I am mostly experiencing insomnia at night (with, of course, tiredness during the day) A little nausea here and there and then my BIG pooching and very sensitive belly (yep, I am sitting here in maternity pants because I can't handle anything touching my tummy)

let the fun begin .....

From my calculations I am 5 weeks 3-4 days! Starting right after I found out last week I've had:

~Nausea on & off
~When I start getting hungry I HAVE TO EAT right away or feel sick!!
~Craving protein like yogurt & milk etc.
~Slight Cramps
~Sore & swollen breasts
~Bloated stomach
~Just starting to feel more tired. Went to bed at 7:30 last night!

So, I am old and behind the times and this is my first baby, so I had no idea about this counting business! Silly me, I was counting how long I had ACTUALLY been pregnant. But I'm going to get hip with the rest of the world, therefore I now know I will be five weeks on Friday. Tonight, I went to bed at 5:00. I got up to eat a toasted cheese sandwich and a pear, and put it in some laundry, and am about to go back to bed!

This may sound crazy, but I can so feel this baby growing in my abdomen. The whole middle of my abdomen is stiff and funny-feeling. I am hesitant to even bend over, though of course I can. It is very weird, but I like it, since it reminds me of what is happening in there.

I'm still on the eating rampage. My husband is going to name me the Pregnant Woman Who Ate Tennessee. I'm not going to help him by pointing out this nickname, but I know it is just a matter of time.

I'm so happy I'm not too crazy or spacey yet, since I'm trying to hide this at work, but I know both things are in my future.

Whew! So glad I'm not the only one! My belly isn't tender all the time..it seems to come and go. I'm terribly bloated tho!!!! I'm also wearing maternity pants already.

Nothing much. No weight gain, no cravings, decent appetite, feel sick in the morning and late evening but no vomiting yet. My kids are the best and I can nap every afternoon when dd does. If ds is not at preschool he plays quietly and handles his own snack, and if he is at preschool they, of course, are caring for him.

Still working out each morning. I didn't with either of the previous pregnancies and I think that makes a difference.

me too. I was on bedrest for a good portion of my first pregnancy and I do not want to go that long again without exercise - uck! So I am still hitting the pilates machine every day and walking as much as I can.

Ugh, the insomnia.
post #18 of 51
I'm not feeling much here either. Little bit of sore nipples (but I'm nursing two so I suppose that's to be expected), little bit of nausea which quickly subsides. That's about it.

Feeling really good, actually. Thus far.
post #19 of 51
I guess i'm about 6 weeks give or take a day or two. So far I've got really sore nipples (which is a big problem as my first still nurses a good amount), tired and HUNGRY ALL THE TIME
post #20 of 51
So far, no nausea BUT I sleep 8-9 hours at night and still wish I could take a nap in the afternoon.
And I have NEVER been so hungry in my LIFE!!! sheesh...I was under the (mistaken) impression that the hunger didn't kick in until a little later. Shows what I know!
