I was vomiting by then. But I vomited pretty early at both pregnancies. Not sure of other symptoms because vomiting was the most disruptive.

I felt so terrible all the time I was getting depressed and regretting getting pregnant. I was asleep most nights by 7pm. I was also very emotionally reactiv. I did not throw up though.

And it all went away.

I didn't have any, really - I was just exhausted.

with DS, nothing except a missed period, HG kicked in around 7-8 weeks

with DD, full blown morning sickness some days, nothing others.

with this little girly... nausea that felt like i was going to vomit but didnt actually vomit until 7-8 weeks, horrible fatigue, bloating, cramping and tender breasts, increased sense of smell... but this girly has a different daddy too and they say that makes a huge difference (it seems to, NOTHING like my other pregnancies!)


pretty much anything within the realm of normal is normal... from nothing to every symptom under the sun or any combination thereof.

Not much of anything at all, apart from moderately sore breasts and sleepiness. Some occasional, mild lower back cramping.

So that's like a week after AF was due, right? I that case I had few symptoms then. Maybe a bit of feeling like I needed to keep my belly full, slightly fuller breasts, a bit of a bloated feeling, easier time falling a sleep for a nap. That's about all I can remember.

Oh yeah, and occasional sharp/twingey pulling feelings around my uterus, particularly when I stood up. Those have continued but are lessening now.

Fatigue, mildy sore breasts and a change in appetite. I usually eat the same things over and over (PB on whole wheat toast, string cheese, apples plus whatever DH cooks for dinner), but early in this pregnancy none of my standard foods sounded good and it was always a struggle to find something that did. For about a week I had a handful of almonds and a couple squares of dark chocolate for my lunch every day.

I dont know if I AM pregnant or not yet, I have a strong feeling I am though... My HPTs with my last pregnancy (that ended in miscarriage) never showed up positive and I only found out via blood test that my hcg count was almost in the 50s. I was exhausted with that one and felt sick to my stomach at night.... with my first baby I was sick from the start and all that good stuff... with my second I had no symptoms until I was 9 weeks (then morning sickness and everything kicked in)... this time I had an odd short light, bright red extra watery "period" two weeks ago, it only lasted a day and then spotted the same stuff for two more days... since then I have had mild on again off again cramping every day, I have been extremely exhausted and have been taking naps when my girls do (which I never do)... I have an increase sense of smell and taste, creamy white cm every day, and yesterday I started peeing more than I normally do and my uterus started getting this heavy dull achy feeling all day long and this morning I had to take one of my reglan pills I had left over from my second pregnancy to keep myself from getting sick. I have an appointment tomorrow and I am going to ask for a blood test. Hopefully I will get one.

If I go off of my last NORMAL period then I would be 5 weeks and 5 days today, which would put my due date around May 16th.

Wish me luck!

(And I would still like to hear about everyone's symptoms so I can compare to mine... and yes, I know every pregnancy is different lol)

Same for me. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but in retrospect I was like, "Ah, that all makes sense now..."

I was hungry. Everything else felt normal. I wasn't even tired but I was still 'coming down' emotionally from finding out that I was pregnant. I don't think I stopped smiling for weeks, lol.

for my dd's... NOTHING. not one symptom. i thought i was getting my af, b/c i had some cramping. that's it. if it weren't for the fact that i never got my af, and then the bfp... i wouldn't even believe i was pg (several weeks later i got a food aversion with both and nausea with dd2 and then exhaustion).

with ds, i KNEW i was pg before i got my bfp b/c i developed pigmented spots on my upper lip and my uterus was buzzing (like a low-level current of electricity running through it). even though i kept getting bfn, i KNEW i was pg. i got my bfp several days after af was due.

never got breast tenderness (then again, i tandem nursed twice).

I am nursing now as well... did your milk come in a little stronger? My boobs feel slightly fuller and my let down has become stronger as well. Its uncomfortable to sleep on my tummy now because of how uncomfortable my boobs are.

Menstrual-style cramps, and my abdomen hurt like crazy when I sneezed or coughed. Also, I was exhausted. Started taking naps daily.

LOL! so then tandemed the next two.

You are my hero. I want to nurse through my pregnancy (if I am in deed pregnant now) but I dont know if I will be able too with how high risk it will be. I will cry so hard so bad if I have to wean my daughter before she wants to. She is 10 1/2 months old (9 months adjusted) and is a boobie addict still. She wont take a bottle or a sippy... she only wants boob 100% of the time.

it's really not high-risk to nurse through pg (read kelly mom). your uterus doesn't have many oxytocin receptors until the end of pg, and the receptors that are there do not have a high affinity for oxytocin anyway, until the end. (let me just say that i'm an anatomy and physiology college professor... teaching nurses, doctors, etc., as well as i researched this ALOT because...)

i researched this alot because i went into preterm labor with my first at 29.5 weeks. i have an irritable uterus, contract all of the time. was on strict bed rest for almost 6 weeks. had her at 35 weeks. anyway, i really did not want to wean her, but everything i read said that b/c of my history of preterm labor, i really should, so i decided to "play it by ear". i slowly weaned her down to several to many times/day (just not all of the time- she'd live on my breast if she could!) by the second trimester. (just in case i really had to wean her, i didn't want it to be cold turkey, yk?). i noticed that nursing her did not cause me to have hard contractions, or more frequent contractions. as a matter of fact, sex caused horrible contractions for me, and i kept doing that (although had to slow down, as the contractions got too intense). anyway, i hid it from my ob until one day i was there for an exam and was nursing my dd, never expecting the doctor to come in so soon. he saw me and i started to stammer that it truly did not cause me to have horrible contractions, and i felt safe doing it, and he stopped me and said "oh that?! that's not going to do anything to put you into labor... go on and nurse if you want to!" i was so relieved!

all of that to say... in my opinion... listen to your body. you'll know if it's not right for you (i think! and if you feel that i'm full of s**t and want to listen to your doctor, go ahead and do that too. i don't know you or your medical history!)

Wow! Thats crazy. I went into PTL with my first at 35 weeks and they managed to stop it and I managed to go to 39 weeks. With my second I started to dilate at 13 weeks and efface at 19 weeks and I went into PTL for the first time at 24 weeks. I was on Procardia from then on to stop or slow down my contractions I had every day... even at that I still had to go to the hospital and have them stop my labor 6 more times during the pregnancy. I had to have fetal fibronectin tests done every two weeks. I had to have the steroid shots at 30 weeks. I was on moderate bed rest from 13-19 weeks and then strict bed rest from 19 weeks until they couldnt stop my labor anymore at 34 weeks. When my OB thought I was still nursing my firstborn during my second trimester (she heard me and my SO talking about nursing our new baby that I was pregnant with) she flipped out and told me that I better NOT be nursing anymore because it could send me into labor. I was put on pelvic and bed rest at 13 weeks.... so IDK.... My third pregnancy ended in miscarriage around 4-5 weeks.... so my history isnt too good so far. But I really dont want to stop nursing so I think I will go with my gut and play it by ear and keep it to myself like what you did and see what happens with my body.
