What's everybody going through this week?

I am on day 18, and I am about to clean out all the food in the entire city. Even if I didn't keep track of my period, and didn't know I was pregnant yet, I would KNOW something was up with this hunger! I'm pretty tired, too.

Also, I feel this weird tightness in the middle of my abdomen that is new to me. I guess that would be my uterus growing? Dunno, but I find it comforting. I really am pregnant!

What about y'all? (Don't forget to tell how far along you are when you report, heehee.)

I'm 5 weeks, 4 days.

Hunger! Right now (10:30 a.m.) I am fighting the urge to go to Zaxby's (you Georgia mamas probably know what I'm talking about) for chicken and fries. Don't know if this is a battle I'm going to win. :

Tired...I've been dead asleep by 8 or 9 every night.

Smells are starting to bother me like from the fridge, but with dd I didn't get really sick until 7 or 8 weeks. We'll see how that goes.

And, as I said in the other thread, my belly's starting to pop out! My lower back's hurting already too.

I'm a bit tired and my appetite is strong. I've had a few brief waves of nausea, but nothing major yet. I'm hoping this doesn't get worse! I feel a bit bloated, but my stomach looks the same and my clothes fit just fine.

Not quite sure how far along I am; my guess is 5 weeks.

I have:
*mild but pretty constant queasiness
*some hunger but nothing sounds good
*tightness in abdomen
*poochy belly
*fatigue

ETA: How could I forget my scatterbrainedness! I'm losing and forgetting everthing these days.

At a little over 5 weeks I am mostly experiencing insomnia at night (with, of course, tiredness during the day) A little nausea here and there and then my BIG pooching and very sensitive belly (yep, I am sitting here in maternity pants because I can't handle anything touching my tummy)

let the fun begin .....

From my calculations I am 5 weeks 3-4 days! Starting right after I found out last week I've had:

~Nausea on & off
~When I start getting hungry I HAVE TO EAT right away or feel sick!!
~Craving protein like yogurt & milk etc.
~Slight Cramps
~Sore & swollen breasts
~Bloated stomach
~Just starting to feel more tired. Went to bed at 7:30 last night!

So, I am old and behind the times and this is my first baby, so I had no idea about this counting business! Silly me, I was counting how long I had ACTUALLY been pregnant. But I'm going to get hip with the rest of the world, therefore I now know I will be five weeks on Friday. Tonight, I went to bed at 5:00. I got up to eat a toasted cheese sandwich and a pear, and put it in some laundry, and am about to go back to bed!

This may sound crazy, but I can so feel this baby growing in my abdomen. The whole middle of my abdomen is stiff and funny-feeling. I am hesitant to even bend over, though of course I can. It is very weird, but I like it, since it reminds me of what is happening in there.

I'm still on the eating rampage. My husband is going to name me the Pregnant Woman Who Ate Tennessee. I'm not going to help him by pointing out this nickname, but I know it is just a matter of time.

I'm so happy I'm not too crazy or spacey yet, since I'm trying to hide this at work, but I know both things are in my future.

Nothing much. No weight gain, no cravings, decent appetite, feel sick in the morning and late evening but no vomiting yet. My kids are the best and I can nap every afternoon when dd does. If ds is not at preschool he plays quietly and handles his own snack, and if he is at preschool they, of course, are caring for him.

Still working out each morning. I didn't with either of the previous pregnancies and I think that makes a difference.

We are six: Me : Dh : Ds1('00) Dd('02) Ds2('05) Ds3('08) and, wow! Soon to be seven, Dd2 due 4/23.

I'm not feeling much here either. Little bit of sore nipples (but I'm nursing two so I suppose that's to be expected), little bit of nausea which quickly subsides. That's about it.

Feeling really good, actually. Thus far.

So far, no nausea BUT I sleep 8-9 hours at night and still wish I could take a nap in the afternoon.
And I have NEVER been so hungry in my LIFE!!! sheesh...I was under the (mistaken) impression that the hunger didn't kick in until a little later. Shows what I know!

Hi All,
I am about 4 weeks pregnant, just tested 2 days ago. Have been pretty hungry and getting a little tired in the evenings earlier than usual. The interesting thing for me was waking up last night at about 3 am and feeling this amazing euphoric swirling sensation in my entire body, like i was floating around in a warm ocean. It felt magical and beautiful.. has anyone else felt this?

erthmama: I had a swirly, tingly, wind-like sensation in my womb the day of implantation. I felt that once before, about mid pregnancy with #1, and someone had prayed over my belly for my baby. I felt that same feeling. This time, I believe it was implantation. I felt it in the afternoon, I had implantation bleeding that night, and implantation cramps the following morning. (Not everyone has implantation bleeding, but it has been a feature of all 3 of my pregnancies.

I had a pregnancy dream the morning I woke with the cramps! I was full term, sitting on the toilet at our house. The baby turned over, and full term babies moving like that is a whole belly motion crazy feeling. I called my DH and asked him to come in the bathroom. As he helped me up, I had a humongous contraction. And right then, I woke up to cramping, and was sure AF had arrived. But she never did!

I have a little nausea, gas, kind of expanding feeling in my uterus. It's strange cause my uterus is tilted which I never sense when I get AF cramps but all my pregnancy symptoms in the beginning are on the left side. I'm also getting a strange feeling I don't remember having before. Best way to describe it is a painful twinge if I roll over too quickly. Anbyone else get this?

I have tons of symtoms...but mild

I have slight queasiness...fatigue but that could be due to sick kids and not sleeping although sometimes I just this "weighted down" feeling and I have to lay down...

slight crampies
itchy rash on back of hand(yep, got this last month with chemical preg)
occasional dizziness
emotional...cry at everything...3 times yesterday over little moving things...like the Happy Days show where Ritchie is in a car accident and the Fonz is praying
sore nipples when baby nurses and shooting pains in breasts
fluttering feelings in abdomen
frequent peeing
very very thirsty

Some of you mentioned a swirling feeling..awesome...

I had a feeling of being real close to my child 2 days after I got preggo...I don't think it was implantation but it was really wonderful, it may have actually been fertilization as I am not quite sure of my O date...it may have been 2 days later than ff told me...it felt so peaceful...I was driving and being mindful, not really thinking about ttc and the feeling just came and I welcomed it and it felt really good...

Good luck to all you ladies...

eta...heartburn for past 2 days

I am hungry ALL THE TIME. And tired all the time. And I pee a LOT.And...my sinuses are totally congested. I'm very nauseous all the time. I also have slight cramping in my abdomen. Oh and the cravings. I dream all day long about McChickens and Battered Fish with Tartar Sauce. It's seriously all I want to eat. Oh yes, and I'm a crier.

Insomnia! This has just hit tonite/today. It is 4:53 a.m. and I am wide awake. I have tried several times to go to sleep, chamomile tea, etc. I am sipping some Natural Calm magnesium right now to see if that will help. Once I'm done drinking it I will most likely try a warm bath too. My mind is spinning out of control when I lay down to sleep. What is really awful about it is I have a college class to go to at 9am. If I can't get some sleep, I don't know how I'm going to be able to drive myself there and stay awake for a three hour class!

Also tonite, maybe from this lack of sleep, a funny twitch in my eye. Definitely moody, although not as bad as when I was pregnant with ds. Bloated belly for sure. Some indigestion. Forgetfulness. Very slow to respond when someone asks me a question. Nipples hurt a bit when ds nurses. Peeing a lot. Very thirsty. Lower back ache off and on. Sinus irritation and congestion off and on which makes me need to mouth breathe, it gets annoying. And very sensitive....when I asked a question in class last Saturday in class, the professor pointed out the answer and was like "Doh!"a nd laughed at me and so then I was pretty much keeping my head down and holding back tears for a minute or two after that.

Wow, I didn't realize all the symptoms I was having until I though about it

April, are you using the Mamacalm or just the regular? I noticed while I was at class on Tuesday that the Mamacalm has a boost of folic acid and zinc in it. I was thinking of trying it instead of the normal.

I hope you got some rest last night!

I haven't heard of the Mamacalm; is it in health food stores? I'll have to check it out.
After I look up a recipe for my son's b-day cake topping, him and I are going to take a nap. I didn't get to sleep until 5:30am! I did actually manage to get to class somehow, and it turns out the professor wasn't feeling well and we ended a little early.
