Anyone else in the 9th week with me? 

 

Right now the nausea is about the same (I've had it for 2 weeks), and I am still tired.  Breasts have stopped hurting, but are still sensitive.  But really moody this past week or so!  Poor DH...  :)

Essentially the same for me, Maurine! My chest isn't nearly as sensitive but it's still obviously much much bigger than usual. I am incredibly moody and this morning I actually yelled "why can't you just validate my feelings?!?" at my husband during an argument this morning.

 

Still have more aversions than cravings, and I'm struggling to keep up with my protein and probiotics intake.

 

We're going to start moving to our new house this week and I'm still totally exhausted - I'll be in charge of packing and directing, but thankfully no lifting!

Wow!  What a busy time for you.  We plan to move to a new house before June (we need to find it first).  I am hoping during the 2nd trimester.

 

Over the weekend I told hubby, since he was acting surprised by my moodiness "Well, if you ever read any of the 'for Dads' section of the pregnancy books, maybe you'd know that it's expected for me to be annoyed all the time!"

This is EXACTLY how I feel!  OMG!  

 

And I don't like being criticized.  Dont call me "nuts" or "obsessive" just because I am an informed person and want to take part in my prenatal care!!! rant.gif

 

I'm only 7 weeks but my mood swings are all over the place.  Ugh, it's crazy.  I screamed at DH this morning b/c we only have 1 bathroom.  Like it's his fault or something??  Ugh, idk what I'm even SAYING half the time and I just want to crack up at myself after it comes out.

I'm also in week 9 and wondering how in the world I am going to get through the next 30!  Moodiness just started within the last week.  I've been exhausted and overly nauseous/hungry since day 1.  My newest pet peeve is my weight - I've already gained about 7 pounds.  August 1st couldn't come fast enough...

I have been soooo moody, Its horrible. I just snap at everybody for no reason! Then I feel bad and get all teary eyed about it. :/ Haha, I feel ridiculous! The other day my aunt was like "It's okay, Riley is just emotional right now." I just snapped "I am not emotional, you really hurt my feelings!" and stormed out of the room. lol I don't even remember what was said.

I'm in week 9.  The dog tiredness  has set in in a big way, and DH is just starting 3 looooooong days of work, and it just won't stop raining here, so next 3 days are going to be interesting!  I've  never had much morning sickness before and it seems this pregnancy is the same, but I am a low-carb, high-fat, high-protein person so maybe that's why.  I also seem to have escaped the sore boobies this time, maybe cos b/feeding my LO.  Still drinking and peeing like a madwoman.   And belly expanding.  And bowels completely doing their own thing at weird times of the day and night!

 

Openpollination I'm also struggling to keep up with the probiotics, I give the girls their's but usually forget about myself. Plus DH got me the powdered probiotic last time and its just  not as easy as popping a pill.  Am loving my sauerkraut and yoghurt and just got some more kefir granules after DH looked at this dodgy container in the fridge and promptly threw out my precious grains! angry.gif

I haven't had too much moody stuff going on, but it was fun reading about all yours lol.gif.  Your poor DHs!

I'm seven weeks but hear you on the moodiness. I wanted to cry last night because DH kissed my head in an attempt to be sweet and his whiskers dug into my scalp (they're not even very long.) I jerked my head away, repressed the urge to cry and said "You have no idea how much that annoyed me. I'm sorry." 

 

LOL.

Mine is a wreck!!  And I'm an esthetician -- I can't use any of my tried and true methods and it's driving me crazy.  I'm just washing, toning, and trying hard not to pick unless I know it's going to clean it out.

Moody, yes.

 

Tired, yes yes yes.

 

Bloated and constipated, unfortunately yes.

 

Acne, double gross check.

 

BUT, my libido is through the roof!!  I've never had a libido like this during pregnancy, it's crazy!  So, I feel like a bloated, fat, moody, pimpley, unsexy nympho  lol.gif  *shrug* Pregnancy is weird.

Oog...puking dry toast is like puking up cat food.  It does work for some people though!

I'm in week 8 and my nauseousness hasn't been bad lately, just like before I was pregnant where I can't stand eating breakfast. But boy am I emotional! I cried watching House Hunters when they said they got the house, and again watching Cougar Town and that's a comedy! I'm tired and in bed at around 8 to just watch TV, then I have to eat a snack because I'm STARVING around 9, and I wake up to pee about 3 times a night.

Enough people said it was "the thing to do" that I tried it.  BLEUCH!  For the record, saltines are just as bad.

But, I'm 2 weeks behind you so maybe I just have to catch up!!

I am 9 weeks today.  The last week has been really rough.  I've been INCREDIBLY tired...as in yesterday I couldn't even change out of my pj's and take a shower.  Today I managed to empty the dishwasher, take a shower, and actually get dressed.  I've been a slug on the couch.  We were at my husband's family's house for a week and I did nothing while I was there.  The moodiness has really set in too.  I wanted to rip DH's head off for no reason.  I have some appetite, but nothing sounds good.  I've having a hard time eating enough protein...or enough in general.  I have gained NO weight at all and may have even lost a pound.  Boobs are getting less sore.  Cramping is getting better.  Nausea is worse, but not horrible.  Today the mood is the worst.  I just feel sort of apathetic and emotionally numb.  I hate that.  I think my thyroid levels might be off.  I'm having them checked this week.  Hearing you guys say you are super tired and moody though makes me feel a little better...I might just be "normal".

 

I have decided the house is likely going to stay a mess until the 2nd trimester.  I'm just too tired.  I don't know how I'll go back to work on Monday.  Ugh.  I don't have a belly yet and I haven't gained weight, but my pants feel tight and I'm bloated a lot.

Isn't it horrible? It is so not fair to have the stomach flu in the 1st trimester. I feel for ya girl, hope you feel better soon. I have just eaten anything with white flour and no flavor (which is so not like me).

hug.gif oh man, it SUCKS. Broth helped me. and yes to the white flour! Applesauce, too, and yogurt. The hardest part was when I knew the virus was pretty much gone and the only remedy was that I HAD to eat, but I sooooo did not want to. I hope you feel better soon!
