I'm only 4 1/2 weeks and you can't imagine how nice it is to see that I'm not the only one who is eating all the time. It seems to be all I can think of. I'm usually NOT a big eater so it's distressing me!

Mommy to THREE sweet boys & ONE sweet girl + a newb due in February!  I need a nap.

I'm 6 weeks tomorrow.  So far it's been relatively easy except my anxiety.  I am worrying about everything.  Other than that, I have cramping on and off, sore boobs (varying degrees) and that's about it.  I get a little nausea if I don't eat, but nothing horrible.  I have been a little tired the last couple days, but I just made an adjustment in thyroid meds so it could be from that.  I have a decreased appetite, but am bloated.  I haven't gained any weight...actually lost 1/2-1lb (not on purpose) because I don't want to eat as much.  I do feel like I'm getting more hungry now though.  In week 4 I couldn't eat hardly anything.  Nothing sounded good and I would get full fast.  Now my regular appetite seems to be coming back, but I'm not hungrier than usual.  No weird cravings either.  We'll see what week 6 brings.
