I have a hard tim believing I'm actually pregnant. Some days I have more symptoms than others. I am tired and hungry and VERY burpy (what's up with that???), but my breast aren't as sore as they were when AF was due. I'm still nursign DS so I guess this is a good thing, but for me it was one of those definitive signs I actually welcomed.

I know we are really early on and I remembering having days with DS when I'd decided I must not be pg anymore (but of course I was), but it'shard for me to hav faith in the process and just enjoy things for what they are right now.

We aren't telling people right now. Only my sister knows.

I don't feel too pregnant yet, but I'm kinda grateful. Last time feeling pregnant meant weeks of nausea and exhaustion, and I'm trying to figure out how to streamline things around the house a bit in case it's like that again. That said, I have peed about 8 times so far this morning :LOL.

Between the sore breasts, peeing, bouts of nausea and fatique, yeah, I am feeling pretty preggo!

But, I know what you mean. With my first I was sick before I even knew I was pg and I was sick the ENTIRE 9 months. So, I always felt pg sick. With this one, probably due to early medication, I feel like a normal person and sometimes it is just so hard to believe that I am pg and still functioning!

I definitely am already feeling pg. About 7 days post conception I started waking up in the middle of the night to pee... still doing that, very fatigued, and mild all-day queasiness set in about a week ago (at 5weeks pg)
I also have pelvic fullness and occasional round ligament pains.

Selissa- showing at 5 weeks? Do elaborate...

take care

LOL I feel like I am "showing" too, but I am pretty sure it is a combo of retaining water and constipation due to my medications! It does hurt already to have pressure on my belly so I have been making use of all of my elastic waist pull on style pants.

I started feeling it in my breasts last week, before I tested, and they still have been feeling odd, not painful, just strange. I am extremely small-breasted, so the fact that they've already seem bigger is a welcome and exciting sign of pregnancy for me.

Also, I have moments of dull crampiness where I am sure AF is about to start -- but then nothing. I think that happened a bit with my first pregnancy too.

I'm feeling pretty pregnant. I am having a lot more symptoms than I did with my first, which I sailed through pretty much symptom-free. I guess karma came back around to get me this time, lol. Maybe I am having a girl this time, they say you have more symptoms with a girl.

And Selissa, I have a little belly, too. I can't believe it's there already. I do think mine is mostly due to bloating, though. But I'm already having to do the rubber band trick with my pants.

I am having to pee alot in the middle of the night and I threw up twice already and I am not even 4 weeks yet! ACK! I also have a bad cold though so that could be part of the throwing up.

I *think* I am 5w5d today and I have constant urination, fatigue, pregnancy acne, sore and enlarged breasts, moodiness, constipation and bloating. No m/s for me at all so hopefully that will continue.

Okay, I am starting to feel pregnant now.
Went for a walk a couple of days ago as I usually do, and usually it is nice and energizing. This time I was drained and exhausted for the rest of the day like I had run a marathon or something.
Also I've had heartburn for a couple of days. Weird cause I didn't get that until like 9mos last time. And the nausea is starting... : Oh well. There's something reassuring about feeling preg even though it sucks.

LOL I am completely exhausted, I even had to take an early evening nap the other day. My boobs feel HUGE and are tender, I have bouts of nausea, I am peeing like crazy. All these symptoms started at the end of the 3rd week.

I am just not looking forward to morning sickness. Blech.

Add me to the hungry list. If I don't eat regularly, I get light-headed and VERY cranky -- and this is only at 5-6 weeks for me?!?! Breasts are still sore, too. I don't remember either happening this early with DS1 -- do any second (or more)timers recalls symptoms coming on earlier, or is it just simply a case of being more aware of and in tune with the body?

It seems like I started to feel pregnant right after I got those two pink lines. Exhaustion has set in and I have some stretching pains. I just want to go to sleep!

I too feel everything started really early this time around. With my first I swear I didn't start to feel pregnant until I was 6-8 weeks.

Yup, I've felt pregnant for about two weeks. Only occasional mild nausea, but very tired, and eating everything in sight!
