How is everyone feeling? - Page 3

grapejuice, I feel like I already have pregbrain, too. But most likely, it's just that I finally have an excuse. :-P.

That is me too!:

Well, I feel a little sick today. Some nausea. I have to head to the fair booth and sit in some hot weather, so I'm trying to figure out what I can do to alleviate the nausea now.

Ugh.

I praypraypray that I don't get as sick this time as I did last. 7 months of puking everyday gets a little old.

I am a little nauseous tonight. I don't often get that way. We ate sushi for dinner and that went down ok, but the nacho chips and dip didn't sit so well in my stomach. So here I am feeling a little nauseous and distracting myself. I have been working really hard, so that could be adding to the sickly tummy.

I feel good...no symtoms yet. Even though last week I was really gassy and cranky.

I'm sure that it will all hit soon though!

I'm feeling really stressed now that I know how much my m/w is going to cost. I need to try and relax.... I swam last night and it helped but the stress is back this morning. :

My m/w might put me on a natural progesterone cream. Anyone have experience with this? She said it should help calm me but wasn't willing to say much more until she talked with another m/w and decided she was sure I needed it. :

i was nauseous wed thru yesterday- Thurs being the worst-- threw up twice in the evening-- yesterday i hardly had any nausea and today none-- but i don' t seem to want to eat anything except homemade hashbrowns with a little green hot sauce-- that's been about the only thing that hasn't made me feel yuck--it kinda scares me that i'm not sick feeling today-- my other 2 i was very sick-esp with my 1st-- at least i know i really am preg when i feel nauseous-- kinda stupid i know--but it is making me extremely paranoid(

i am also extremely ill and cranky and feel completely lazy--

I, too, am feeling very grumpy and lazy.

Also, I'm feeling pretty stressed now, though I'm trying to relax. It looks like we're going to sell our house and move above my in-law's shop for a few months.

We're doing this to pay off our bills so I can become a SAHM when baby arrives.

It sure is a LOT of work though. The last thing I want to do right now is sell my house. :

I'm also STARVING. I want to eat everything. Tonight, we're making those little crab-on-an-english-muffin melts with tomatoes and cheese. Well, ok, it'll be imitation crab, but still yummy.

Sorry to say, but I'm a little jealous of those of you who are nauseated/vomiting. I was all set for that, but instead I'm getting killer migraines and all over body achiness. I'm tired and cranky all the time. I've taken to wearing bras 24 hours a day to keep down the tenderness there (unbelievable!...I'm NOT a big breasted woman--only a 36B!!) Plus, NOW I have a ^*%@ yeast infection!!! :

I broke down and took a Tylenol last night. All we have is the extra-strength, rapid release tablets. Think that's still OK? I only took one, but it did miracles making me feel better. I know from my days as a receptionist at an OB/GYN's office that Tylenol is OK, but that was before "extra-strength rapid release". Still OK? I also recall that Monistat 7 was considered safe...is it still? I know the 3-day and 1-day aren't. My diet has been sooo good except Friday and Saturday when I had pizza each day.

Oh...and I'm craving jalapenos in queso sauce! I don't even like jalapenos!!

Tylenol is fine -- even the rapid release. And the Monistat 7 is safe, too. If it isn't raging yet, you could try something gentler and more natural, like yogurt, acidophilus, or other stuff.

I am having some heartburn and gas, feel a bit emotional, and am sleepy. Other than that, not too much, but I do tend to get nausea and horrid migraines later on. Maybe this time will be different....
post #52 of 89
Thanks for the assurances and suggestions, CarolynnMarilynn. I took some acidophilus earlier--how much and how often can I take it? Trying to hold out on the Monistat and thought I'd try to get some plain yogurt at Trader Joe's, if I ever feel motivated enough to leave the house! Still sooo tired!

fwiw, plain yogurt works great topically also. A little messy but worth it. I swiped some on the vulva area, placed a cloth pad in, and let it sit for a few hours. It worked great.
post #54 of 89
I've been feeling pretty good. I have gagged a few times and get nasuea if I don't eat when I know I should. The only really bad things are the leg cramps. My goodness do they just ache in the evenings.

uh, am I pregnant?

I can't really tell. But I am thinking that maybe the reason I am feeling so freaked about this pregnancy is due to hormones. I have been feeling really emotionally sensitive lately. And I have been feeling dismay that my daughter is going to have to share me too early in her life. I do know that when my hormones have acted up in the past I have felt really weepy, and that is how I feel. Perhaps I am happy about the pregnancy after all, it is just my hormones kicking in and making me feel weepy. I am going to just ride it out. We just closed on a house and have 2 weeks to paint the whole thing and move in, which has been a real challenge with a baby, so I think that the stress of the move is overloading my circuits. We have had to hire people to paint because my daughter can't be around the paint, and now that I know I am pregnant, I can't either. My DD has been really needy because she is teething, so I can't even spend 2 seconds doing anything. Oh gosh, sorry. I do think that this is all hormonal. When we are all moved in and settled, then I am going to decide how I feel. I need to give myself a break.

wirewendy - big

I can really relate the past couple days - I've been having some major mood swings and was super weepy Fri & Sat. Yesterday was better, and today seems to be ok so far... we'll see. I've decided to chalk it up to the pregnancy... It's so hard when you have so many big things going on at once - so easy to get overwhelmed. Believe me I know it's easier said than done, but do the best you can to be easy on yourself. Vent as much as you can rather than keeping it inside - I'm happy to listen if you want to pm me. And it won't last - you will feel better about it.

What kind of acidophilus are you taking? The only real risk to taking too much is it can cause loose stools. So if you get some, take less!

Wirewendy -- hang in there and a big hug.

Yes, your dd will have to "share" you with her little sister or brother, but in my experience toddlers are very skilled and getting what they need, and it is often the baby that is put in a sling and carried around, but not as fussed over. I thought my toddler would be the one being slightly ignored, but OH NO, he got what he needed and a few times a day I would forget that I had a new one at the breast, in the sling, in the bed too and feel a bit guilty. But she was happy as a clam and it worked out fine. AND the big bonus of a sibling close in age far outweighs any 'sharing' of mama. My kids are so fortunate to have each other, and I would think that in their minds their relationship with each other is as primary as the one with me or their dad (and I would agree).

Best wishes that you get through all the house stuff and feel better soon!

I haven't been feeling as pregnant in the last few days, which is freaking me out. Maybe I am adjusting? My breasts are still as tender, but I am getting fewer groin heaviness feelings. My temp is still up, my mucus is dry as a bone and clumpy, and I get some ligament pulls if I move to quickly. Food is still a bit sensitve. So I guess it's just the heaviness in my uterus that is less intense. Anyone else? I plan on doing an hcg tomorrow to ease my mind (and to feed my OC'ness )
