My m/s is getting worse I'm 11 weeks. I had BAD BAD m/s with my 1st and it lasted 5, 6? months. I really hope I'm not in for a repeat of that. Though my m/s is no where near that level

Cravings for me always started almost right away. Though it may be a flip side of aversion. "OMG I can't stand peanut butter but a steak would sit quite well" type of thing? I dunno

No appointments for me yet. No midwife either :sigh: I might end up with a UP from sheer laziness/fear of the medical system/BTDT-itis. I'm so not looking foward to being poked and prodded and questioned about my diet, exercise, activity level etc and the weighing :

My dreams last night were crazy and constant. You know how usually you feel like you dream later in sleep or something? Or you just have one or two dream periods a night? I dreamt from the time my head hit the pillow until the time DH woke me up this morning. It was crazy. I know I was dreaming all night b/c I kept waking up to pee thinking it must be closer to morning b/c I never have dreams this early, but it would be like 12:00, 2:00, 4:00, etc. I just realized I'm waking up every two hours to pee. No wonder I'm so tired. I'd stop drinking water in the middle of the night but I get so dang dehydrated so quickly. *sigh* I just need a day off. Somehow. Maybe tomorrow.

Azreial Sorry your m/s is getting worse. I'm sending you good eatin' vibes ::. Also on the MW, I found my first appointment to be much less invasive than I thought it would be. I had a PAP in Jan so they didn't do one and only a brief pelvic exam. I was shocked it didn't hurt b/c I've always had pain with PAPs, but it didn't...maybe b/c of increased blood flow due to pg? Anyhow, the MW was so sweet and DH loved her, when before that he had a lot of fear. It was a great experience. I didn't feel poked and prodded at all! Still, it must be hard to want to do anything when you feel so sick. GL.

Blah, cold is not getting better. Now it has moved into my chest, not coughing yet, but moving around leaves me winded. Course all I want to do is sit on the couch, only as soon as DD1 sees me sitting there, she wants to jump on top of me and nurse for hours. Really not want I want to do when my nipples still feel like they are on fire.

Sorry to hear you feel crappy. I'm UPing. I don't have a fear of the medical system (I was in it after all! RN), but I have no patience to jump through hoops, do this pap, step on the scale, "what do you mean you don't want to do the glucose screening?".... I had a wonderful homebirth last time with a MW who got me, I didn't have to do anything I didn't want to, very limited prenatals as well. She no longer practices, and I won't do it any other way then my way.

I had my first ultra sound!

I saw baby hands, feet, head, stomach . .. . It was amazing. And the baby posed perfectly for several pictures. It was so neat to see the baby kicking the feet out.

The tech said I was 12 weeks and 3 days along by all the different meassurements that she did. Which means I am past the first trimester! And also means that maybe I am due at the end of March instead of in April. But can I still stay here with you moms?
post #26 of 75
CONGRATS!!!! That is so cool to be a couple weeks ahead of where you thought you were! And yes, you should absolutely stay here with us ::

I'm feeling a bit better lately. MS has passed. It lasted exactly 2.5 weeks, just like when I was preg last time.
I'm still really low energy, and I go from full to STARVING in a matter of seconds it seems.

My milk supply is dropping, which I'm glad about. This is the way I envisioned weaning ds, so hopefully all goes well

I had a creepy dream the other nite. A sex dream with the Joker from the new Batman

I wouldn't kick Heath Ledger outta my bed for eating crackers.

May he rest in peace.

My doc called this morning to say we're out the progesterone woods. It's now up past 20 so I don't have to keep having it checked, but I do need to keep taking the oral Prog and the suppositories which aren't that bad once you get used to them.

So as of right now, I am feeling very good about the health of this baby. Now we gotta tackle the diabetes issue. I have to report all my readings to her on Thursday. If readings are too high they'll want me to go on insulin which I really want to avoid. The thought of shooting myself up in the stomach skeeves me out.

And OB's want blood sugar as tightly under control as if I were a non-diabetic. So this is going to be really tough.

:Glad you're progesterone is up! And GL with the blood sugar. What a pain!
post #32 of 75
That sounds like one crazy dream! My energy is still nonexistant.

Polgara~ glad to hear your progesterone numbers are good!

Peony~sorry that your still sick

I agreed to watch my sister's 1yo for the next 5 Thursdays while she's at dance rehersal and her partner is at work. She won't be here to get her until 9:30pm....the last week I've been in bed by 9, and am frequently asleep on the couch prior to that. I hope I can do this

of course you can, mama- and hopefully you will really enjoy it, too! and good for you for helping out your sister.

Ughhhh, i am feeling SO SICK this afternoon! I thought I was over it, but this feels like full-on m/s.
post #35 of 75
yup, same here amy. resurgence of m/s bigtime. it's horrible.

you know, i really do not enjoy pregnancy. just wanted to get that out there. i'll love this baby with every ounce of my being, but i cannot freaking stand being pregnant. *sigh*
post #36 of 75
I think I'm deciding that I do like being pregnant and will fall in love with it even more as my belly grows, but I am also looking forward to not being pregnant and already think I want a good little break between this one and the next one.

I've been out two evenings in a row and am very grateful to be home tonight (and hopefully to bed early!). The night before last I went to an awesome presentation at my professional practice group about harm-reduction and outreach to substance using pregnant women. Very heavy, but very powerful. Last night was more fun and casual- my sister babysat so I could go to a reading my husband was performing at.

Gotta go- my daughter is calling....

I had my first prenatal today. Just talked and got paperwork to fill out. My edd got moved up a few days putting me at exactly 12 weekss today. I was so disappointed that we didn't get to hear the heartbeat. I have to have a risk assessment done at the health clinic and I was going to put it off a few weeks but my midwife told me if I want to do it sooner rather than later I can kinda fib and tell them I'm not sure how pregnant I am and I might get a free u/s to make me not feel so worried. I go back to her on October 8th and that seems like a long time to have to wait to make sure everythings ok in there. I was really looking forward to hearing the h/b because I feel like it would make me actually feel pregnant and I'd start to feel bonded to this baby. Now that my m/s and sore boobs are fairly non-existent I find it much easier to worry.

I know what you mean about the ebbing symptoms...I'm 12 weeks tomorrow. How come you couldn't hear the heart beat? Just too early, or she didn't have the equipment?
post #40 of 75
My symptoms have been waning as well, and then last night I had some bleeding. I'm really trying NOT to freakout. My midwife is out of the country for another month. I could see her back-up but I'm not sure she would really do much. I'm 10w 4d so she may not even be able to hear a heartbeat; right? I've bled in previous pregnancies, but never this far along.
