I feel bloated, have a stuffy nose, heartburn, sore bbs, fatigue and a trace of nausea.

What about you?

Mostly sore breasts all over and it hurts to nurse (mostly at latch on). I was having a little queasiness and fatigue, but the past few days I actually feel great! The only difference in energy level, is I get more fatigued exercising since about 7dpo, so I am have cut back about 50%.

With my first pregnancy, I had very minimal symptoms until 6 or 7 weeks. So, I am trying to make the most of the next couple weeks before the exhaustion sets in!

I'm not doing well. I had such an easy pregnancy with Nick that I just feel awful with this one!! I have morning sickness beyond belief, I'm constantly cramping (no spotting so I'm not worried) and just feel lso run down.

Hi - I just found out I am pregnant with my second child. I will be 5 weeks tomorrow. So far I feel ok. Tiredness is my main issue. I was feeling crampy but is has passed. No morning sickness yet. A little queasy in the morning but not bad so far. I get worried when I don't feel sick - although I know I shouldn't. I don't think it started for me until I was 6 or 7 weeks the last time I was pregant so I guess I will just wait enjoy it now.

Can anyone say sore nipples? That's me - the queen of sore nipples (me and Slightly Crunchy and anyone else still nursing). This does eventually end, right? It's not as bad as when I had cracks and mastitis but it sure isn't comfortable. Otherwise, I feel great. No real nausea yet but last time that didn't set in until between 5 and 6 weeks. Not feeling fatigued yet either but I'm sure that will come.

Well, after the sore nipples getting worse and worse to where I was almost crying sometimes when ds latched on, I think it is getting a tiny bit better. :

However, the nausea began yesterday. :LOL I am five weeks and a few. This may be my last pregnancy, so I am trying to relish every sensation, if that's possible.

All I can say is OUCH, I forgot about the breast soreness! This kicked in on Sunday, right now I'm feeling nauseated (could be lunch, could be baby...hoping its the latter) so I'd say all is going well, I'm thrilled!

Congrats to everyone else!

Jumping in here...

I'm pg with my third- and am already having wicked ms. With my two girls I didn't get sick till about 8 weeks, and I think I'm just over 4 wks now and UGH. Plus all the regulars- sore nipples, exhaustion, bloating.

Glad we're all here

Half-marathon running Mommy to 3 spunky girls and 1 sweet boy. Spending my days and nights where my kids need me most- at home with them!!

No serious symptoms here yet. I am slightly hungrier than usual. I have high blood pressure except for when i am preggo so my bloating has actually gone down the last week or so. My BP and lack of bloating was what told me i was preggo before the EPTs even picked it up. I didn't have any m/s with either of my other pregnancies but i was more nauseated with my second than with my first so i give it a chance to get m/s this time. No sore boobies yet. I do have horrible heartburn that started the day after i Oed so not sure if it is pregnancy related or not.

Hey all..

It is hurting something fierce when DS latches on, and it is not the most comfortable anymore, but I am going to tough it out. DH wanta me to wean, but I am going to tandem nurse.

I didn't have any cramping or anything, but I do have some wicked morning sickness already. I don't know when i am due, I think the first week of May. I think I am 6 weeks now.

I have to go and get some prenatal vitamins today!!! I stopped taking them when I ran out a few months ago! I hope that is not bad! Is it?

I have a bit of nausea but nothing else so far. I'm still nursing and keep waiting for the breast tenderness to kick in. I don't have to pee too often yet, but apparently the pregnancy combined with the nursing has turned me into a little piggy. I can't stop eating!

my poor dh!!! I am SOO Irrational right now. i am getting agitated with EVERYTHING! and its hard to keep my mouth shut. i think he'd like to live in the bedroom for a few months and hide. im trying to tame it.......i remember this feeling lessening abit close to the end of my first trimester, the last times. :

i am very tired and very bloated. i am having a hard time fitting into my pants. i know its not uterus yet....just water :

no m/s yet (knock on wood) I am 5 weeks today....i think.

its funny that ppl are saying im loosing weight (we havent told ppl yet). I think this is because my boobs are ginormus and it makes my tummy look smaller!! :LOL eirther that ppl are just saying "are you getting thinner" without even noticing bodyshape

oh one last thing. i am very thirsty and (tmi) constipated. need to drink more water *note to self*

ttyl

I have had crazy sore nipples and food aversions (basically eating oatmeal and fruit juice right now). In the afternoon, the aversions go away and I feel GREAT for like 4 hours...then 5 pm comes and I'm back to feeling icky. No exhaustion yet. If anythign, I am so excited I can't sleep. So I've basically got the food aversions and the sore nipples and that's it so far.

I also sneeze 2-3 times/day now and this started when I was about 14 dpo. I NEVER sneeze normally unless I'm coming down with a cold, and I haven't had a cold the past 2 weeks. Weird!
