I would probably grab a shoe and throw it at him.  And tell him that a lot of women have a first trimester that does put them out of commission.  And if he doesn't understand, throw a few pregnancy books at him.

Welcome NaturallyMo! So glad you could join us. I wonder about that bacon... definitely didn't set well with me during the 1st trimester. eat.gif

Maybe a new thread could be started. Other threads go month-to-month. That way, the responsibility of thread-keeping can be for a more manageable term.

DH is being insensitive and just plain mean to say that to you. He just doesn't see these other pregnant women when they are so exhausted they need to rest. Hope he gets more supportive...

AFM, I've been a worry wart as the only symptom I have had lately is being so tired today and queasy... Other than today I have had NO symptoms the last 3 days... Has me nervous.
Ohhhh! So I have a craving for a grilled cheese... What kind of cheese would you recommend I make it with since I can't have certain cheeses... And what kind of bread?

I took my slip on shoe and threw it at DH when he complained dishes weren't done and clothes not dried.  And then I made him read this book.. it helped.

Potato bread!  And regular white american cheese.  If you can stomach it, throw a tomato slice in there.  It's one of the few things I can stomach at the moment.

 

Don't worry about the symptoms!  You're right there with me and the disappearing symptoms.  Be thankful for the slow days, and come on here if you begin freaking out.  The only time you really need to is if you're bleeding or cramping badly.  Or a bad fever.  No worrying, hun!  (Coming from the other worry wart)

Potato bread I LOVE! Wonder if it will crunch though like I am wanting... It's bad. I'm laying here in bed and someone posted about a $100 grilled cheese and then on The Chew they made an Italian styled Cuban! Ughhh i want the cheesey gooe-ness of a grilled cheese but the crunchy bread of the Cuban...
As for my wartiness... Haha! I can't help but be scared because how STRONG my symptoms were as early as 4 weeks. I still have been breaking out though.. I'm all pimpley.. Yuck!

I think you are right about him not seeing other pregnant women in the evenings. He only sees them for short periods of time.

 

I figured I wasn't the only woman who felt this way. I'll let him know that other pregnant women agree that it is tiring. Thanks!

I can't eat potato bread or processed cheese, but I say eat whatever bread and cheese combination works for you. Cheddar would be my preference.

 

Believe it or not, my skin has cleared up during this pregnancy. It has been terrible for the past year and a half thanks to my previous pregnancies, miscarriages, and hormonal imbalances, and now it is clearing up! I am definitely thinking that I am carrying a boy based on my symptoms.

Yeah, when I was pregnant with my son I NEVER broke out! Now I have a nasty pimple on my cheek, temple, chin, just left of my nose, on the tip of my nostril, at the top of my neck... It's ALL OVER! If that means it's a girl... GREAT! lol!
I have done good though and not gone to buy more POAS tests since my other symptoms have subsequently disappeared. Lol

I'm getting pimples on my neck, behind my ears, bottom of my chin, and my thighs.  And I can't use anything for it!  You ladies have any remedies for it?

Okay, since we are talking about what the husband shouldn't do or say, here's a list for them to follow! Particularly your DH @NSmomtobe

Peroxide. I had horrible acne with my last pregnancy and finally just started using peroxide as a astringent and it cleared up!

@dmarievhope you feel better soon!

Ok me on the other hand! No nausea, no an me nothing!!!! I don't even feel pregnant except the fact that most of the day in lethargic! 😴 I do have some strong smells going. Certain foods smell disgusting! I don't know why I have no nausea. Makes me worry my hcg levels are low. I almost bought a test yesterday but I've seen how testing has drove some women on hear crazy with worry so I didn't. I just figure I'll know when I go to my appt. within the next month.

Be glad ya don't have the nausea... I had it super strong and then NOTHING. Today I felt like total poo... The POAS thing I have an issue with doing that. I may go buy a new one tomorrow just to put my mind at ease because tomorrow is the same day I had my MC in December. 5w6d... Have an appt Thursday to get my insurance set up and taken care of so I can get an appt with my OB.

Yeah those are big babies! Lol! I know the feeling though. My son was 9lb 4oz and 19" long. He didn't stay that way either! In his first month he gained 4lbs and 4"! He went from 9lb4oz and 19" to 13lbs and 23" in ONE MONTH! I still have an issue of keeping him in clothes that fit because he's only 8 and already 4'7"! Haha

I have had a HUGE one on my temple for MONTHS and I put honey and cinnamon on it for 15 min every night for a while. It wasn't as gross as I thought it would be (wiped off easily with a wet cloth) and it seemed to help, but I I guess it didn't really since it stayed around for months. It's finally going away now (but it is still a different colour than the rest of my skin).

 

DH and I got into another fight yesterday because I came home hungry and cranky. He said that was unacceptable and that I should have eaten a snack before coming home. I told him I did, but I was hungry anyway. Then, rather than blowing up at him, I waited until DS was in bed and then we talked. I told him I have not been feeling supported in this pregnancy. He said he is trying to be supportive but he is going through stuff too. Apparently, he has not been sleeping well lately, so he has also been tired, and he is under a lot of stress at work, and every time he picks up DS from day care (which is most of the time, since I work further away and often have appts after work), he gets a report of all his bad behaviours, which makes him feel like a terrible parent. I guess his message was, "Just because you are miserable doesn't mean that I am not miserable too." So I guess we are on the same page now. I think it helped him to talk about his feelings. 

 

Now where is @Harmony96? Didn't you have an appointment yesterday?

I need a lot of prayers. So yesterday, I found out that our van needs almost $1K of repairs. We also had our first prenatal appointment and found out that we would have to pay for the entire birth (our most expensive out-of-pocket birth so far) up front and then be reimbursed for part of it later after CCM processes the bills. We obviously didn't plan for either of these expenses, and the numbers are just not adding up at all for us to be able to make ends meet between now and October.

The only variable right now is my work, but the transcription is a catch-22 is that during a time when I need to be working as much as I can, of course I'm in the middle of first-trimester exhaustion that hits me like a Mack truck every pregnancy. My most ideal working hours are while the kids are asleep, but then when they're sleeping, that's all I want to be doing, too. And then never mind that we've been here for five weeks and still have more stuff in boxes than out of boxes. I don't even know where over half of my maternity clothes are.

It didn't take long for the stress of the situation to show up in my dreams. I had a very real-seeming dream last night that I lost the baby. The images I saw and the emotions I felt in the dream were VERY VERY real. And while still dreaming, I even came on here to post about it, and mentioned that "at least I wouldn't have to worry about that bill now."

Trying to think happy thoughts and count blessings now.

And while still dreaming, I even came on here to post about it, and mentioned that "at least I wouldn't have to worry about that bill now."

Trying to think happy thoughts and count blessings now.

Everything is going to be fine.  Is there any way to take a long term loan of some sort?  Or some kind of medical assistance program?  I hope you get all the help you need.  I hate suggesting this, but as a last resort, is there a family member who would be willing to help out?  Fingers crossed for you.

 

Also, ignore the vivid dream.  Remember this.  Whenever we have something bothering us or we are worried about things, they always lurk into our dreams and make us paranoid.  Don't overthink it. <3

We obviously didn't plan for either of these expenses, and the numbers are just not adding up at all for us to be able to make ends meet between now and October.

The only variable right now is my work, but the transcription is a catch-22 is that during a time when I need to be working as much as I can, of course I'm in the middle of first-trimester exhaustion that hits me like a Mack truck every pregnancy. My most ideal working hours are while the kids are asleep, but then when they're sleeping, that's all I want to be doing, too. And then never mind that we've been here for five weeks and still have more stuff in boxes than out of boxes. I don't even know where over half of my maternity clothes are.

So sorry you are going through all this. I know how stressful things can get when you have bills and no money to pay them. Just remember if God puts you in it He will see you through it. He never gives is more than we can handle. Even if we don't see the light at the end of the tunnel we know it's there because He will never leave us.
I say this from experience because 11 days before my 27th birthday my husband of 2 1/2 years took his life. At the time, I had a house payment to make, a car payment, electric bill, daycare, house and car insurance... All those bill and only had $14 (yep, that's typed right), in our checking account. I was devestated! I'd lost my love, my high school sweetheart just days before my birthday and had NO money... But with the Grace of God I was able to get through it all. I have an amazing boyfriend/fiancé (we have decided we are getting married after his youngest who is 6 is out of the house because it would hurt us financially to do so before) whom I love as well as his kids and he loves me and my son. We are excited to be pregnant so we are all one big Brady Bunch family. Lol! I have been so nervous about this pregnancy due to the miscarriage I had in December that I made him buy me another POAS test just a little bit ago! Today is 5w6d that I am pregnant and that is the same as when I lost the baby in December. So I took the test a minute ago and BAM! It popped a positive before I even could pop the cap back on it! Haha

I said a couple of nights ago that I need to go get an ultrasound or pee on a stick for peace of mind.  Funny enough, my OB is making me wait till my appointment on the 30th and my husband hid my debit card.  And all that's left in my envelope of Wondfos are ovulation tests.  He said if I need proof, he will write down everything I eat, each time I wake up in the middle of the night to pee, think I need to puke, or drink half a gallon of OJ, and several other things.  Low and behold, my little one is making me hungry at 3am now instead of 5am, we spend an average of about $20 on oj a week, and what I'm eating is everything I swore off 2 years ago.  So I have no grounds to try anything, lol.

 

My friend who just had her daughter a couple of days ago said this pregnancy was going to be strong, and that he is going to be her daughter's first boyfriend.  And all she could say was, "Trust me on this."
