Weekly Thread: July 23rd - 30th

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
Moving on! It feels so good to chalk up another week.

I'm 6 weeks pregnant now, and still feeling great. I was a little quezy this morning when I woke up, but that passed as soon as I ate breakfast. No food aversions yet, and no vomiting. I'm not overly tired (for a mother of a 19 month old ) but my nipples are very sore the past few days.

DS is a twiddler while nursing, so its been hard. I grin and bear it, though! I am determined to nurse him for as long as he wants.

How's everyone feeling? How many weeks along are you now?

I am 5 weeks...I think. Found out last week. ??

Feeling okay, nipples starting to get tender when ds nurses, and I'm not as patient with him grabbing handfuls of flesh and squeezing...particularly my left armpit by where my nursing bra clips up. Leave it alone, already!

I'm HUNGRY all the time, a bear when it's time to eat and I can't figure out what I want or don't have anything handy to jam down. I am tired of eating. Let me clarify that. If I could have freshly delivered Pizza Hut pepperoni pizza or a Big Mac with fries when I get hungry, that would be fantastic. But because that stuff kills people (when not eaten in moderation) I must resist. Grrrr...

Moody, tired, short-tempered...I'm morphing into the newborn my body is busily building!

I'm sure I'll be packing on the pounds with all this extra food I'm eating, but I will take it over nausea.

A few friends know, and I'm trying to have as few people IRL know as possible, so I think I'm going into hibernation for the next several weeks. My attitude and increased appetite will give me away.

I am 6 weeks as well, and it has really hit me hard. I am SO tired, spend most of the day feeling yucky. Hungry and thirsty. Only certain foods sound good, and the foods vary from hour to hour.

I just consumed an entire large steak with sauteed mushrooms and corn on the cob. Under normal circumstances, I would only be able to eat half a steak. Baby needs the protein!!!

I think I'm turning 9 weeks on Wed. (that's from LMC, not ovulation). I'm surprised to not be seriously puking - I did lots with my first pg. SO I'm thinking I may be having a boy.

I'm either starving or want nothing to do with food - and can change on a dime. And heaven help anyone who comes b/tw me and me food!

My DD weaned at 18.5 months - and I have to say I'm so glad to not be nursing at the moment : . I am feeling so yuck - tired and gross a lot of the time. When will you be here, 2nd trimester? Come quick!!!

I'm just 4 weeks along - found out on Friday!

I'm feeling a little nervous as we miscarried verrry early on, last month - day 34 of my cycle. I'll be able to breath just a little bit in a week from now, I think.

So far only my dh, mom, siblings, and 1 good friend know. I reeeeally want to start telling people, but we're determined to keep it under wraps for a few more weeks.

My cousin just told me today that he and his wife are expecting in early March!! I'm so excited because our older dcs are just 6-8 weeks apart - last time our ds was older. I'm really looking forward to telling them our news!

I'll be 8 weeks pregnant tomorrow, I believe. And I'm definitely showing! I have no idea how much longer I'll be able to keep the news from family! I've been craving protein this entire pregnancy so far. I want MEAT! Especially ground beef!
Oh, and I'm another one who's thrilled my kid weaned. He just weaned in time for his 4th birthday, but if he hadn't, I'd be pushing for it now! I'm also very happy that he's going through a Daddy stage. He wants to spend lots of time with his father, and that works out so well for me! Most nights, DH is getting him to sleep now, so I don't have to.

I just found the weekly thread. I haven't been at the computer much lately. I am 8 weeks and feeling pretty nausea and tired. So glad ds takes a long morning nap and is starting to sleep longer in the morning. I feel like I am starting to show already but it could just be b/c I am eating all the time. I am having troubles getting my protien again just like last time. Basically all I want is all beef farmer sausage and we are waiting for our order that we placed at the butcher. Man I hope it comes soon.

I'm officially counting down the days until week 12... first trimester + me are not good friends. Not that it has been super gross or anything, but I am a serious bitch lately, pardon my french, I think because I am so tired. Plus that has been when the ickyness has disappeared in the past.

About 7 weeks for me. Mild cramping and some brown spotting off and on, a little red spotting this morning.

Getting nervous. General feeling that this isn't going to stick.

I hope I am wrong.

I hope you are too, mama.

Hello!

I'm 6 weeks, and hoping that things work out this time. I've been bumped from porgesterone gel, to suppositories and now to daily injections. DH is a trooper, even if he makes more whimpering noises than I do when giving me the shot. I can't believe we're really going to have to do this until 12 weeks (well, that's if we make it that long).

I have a few symptoms but currently more focused on my sore butt and this nasty case of swimmer's ear that I just can't shake naturally. :

Looking forward to a time of feeling more secure in this pregnancy.

and : for everyone!

Hello, everyone!

Let's see, I guess I need to start a running count of how far along I am, huh? I guess I'll be 5 weeks on Wednesday, the 26th.

I've been so unbelievably tired and literally biting my poor DH's head off at the smallest of infractions! I keep reminding him I now have no control over my (very intense) emotions.

We found out on Sunday (the 23rd). I had a rough time last month (thinking a veeeery early m/c), so I waited until 18 dpo and consistent high temps before taking a test (yes, Keri, I broke down...my confidence rose and I had one in the house). I'll go get a beta on Tuesday and another on Thursday just to put my mind more to rest.

My dad called me Sunday afternoon to tell me his "big news". I wanted to say, "I bet my news is bigger than yours!" but held back. I don't want to tell my family OTP or this early. We'll be holding out until after the first trimester to tell anyone (except here, of course! ) (BTW, his news was he bought a new Camry Hybrid) If my M-I-L comes to visit next month, we'll go ahead and tell her then because we want to do it in person. Otherwise, it looks like I might be around 5 months when we'll get a chance to tell our families in person because they all live so far away. Think they'll notice I'm a little rounder than last time they saw me?

I am 6 weeks now. I have very low energy, and I'm starving all the time. I have been kind of cranky and am dreading going back to work this week after having the summer off. We are going to tell family and friends in a couple of weeks. It has been so nice to not have to deal with the constant questions like last time.

To steal words from another poster, I hope you're wrong too!!

I'm 9 weeks 3 days (LMP) or 9 weeks (ovulation).

I'm feeling pretty well these days, the m/s has passed (knock on wood) and although I'm dead tired (thankfully DH works at home!) I'm feeling ok. I've been sleeping in way late but I'm stocking up on sleep since I start school in a few weeks. I'm definitely showing, I showed early with DD too, my siggy links to my belly shot!

Hope everyone is doing great on this (hot! it was 118 yesterday) Monday!

Makers of the new week's thread need to start providing a link to here from the old week's thread!

Please?

8 weeks here. Too hungry and tired to say more.

hi everyone,
I'm 6 weeks today, and I feel alright, my breasts are still sore, but not quite as swollen- I have nausea after every meal, but haven't gotten sick yet. I'm on progesterone suppositories and have a real love/hate relationship with them. They are keeping me from bleeding (I was spotting for 5 days when I first found out) - but they are quite annoying too.
I had my fist u/s at 5w4d and they saw a small sac with no yolk/baby yet. They said it was too early as my HCG's weren't quite high enough yet.
The HCG's have not been doubling, but have been increasing about 90% which I hear from some sources is good enough -but my doc is still very skeptical.
I have another u/s at 6w4d on Friday. I really hope the sac has grown and I get good news that there is a baby in that sac!

I'll be 8 weeks on Wednesday. Feeling kind of blah and totally over the hot weather. Have had less symptoms over the past couple of days so that makes me nervous, but I'm trying to take it all in stride. I did notice that there's now an April DDC board. Seeing it makes me feel like we've made some real progress.

A big shout out to my progesterone sistas! Bummer about the injections, Be. And lilduds, I feel your pain, squish, squish. I'll be : for you for perfect u/s results on Friday.

Thinking of you, LadyInfidel.
