Isn't that wild? For some of us it's 7 weeks, but for those of us in the first part of the DDC we are almost there!

I am finally showing and wore maternity clothes yesterday. It's not that my old clothes are too tight, they just fit funny, and I kept having to hike them up over my belly.

I am later in the ddc. I am 7 weeks today. I still have about 5 or 6 weeks to go. I look forward to it though.

When does the third trimester start? Is it the 12th week or the 13th? One place I looked at even said the 14th.

I'll be 10 weeks tomorrow! Woooooohoooo!

Yay! We are all moving right along. I am nearly 9 weeks now and so looking forward to the 2nd trimester. That is usually when I start feeling better again.

For some reason, I always thought the 2nd trimester officially started in week 14. But regardless, I breathe a sigh of relief after week 12.

3 more weeks for me!!!!! I think that my m/s is finally subsiding. I have not left the house in 3 weeks. I live in Vegas and I think i may actually go out tonight to the local casino for some fun with my Aunt! I cant beleive i feel normal today. I did lose about 10 pounds the past few weeks, but i needed to lose them anyway!
Hope y'all are feeling better..

I am almost 8 weeks. Can't believe it at all. More exhausted/achy/sickly feeling this time around, but the all-day-nausea seems to be abating. Weeks 5 through 7 were BAD.

Warning to everyone about eating right when you get up to keep energy up... I didn't eat at normal time (6:30) this morning and slept in til 8:15. When I did get up to go pee, I ended up passing out, falling forward off the toilet, and apparently knocking my head and shoulder pretty good (they're sore now, so I assume that's what happened). DH said I was on the ground out for about 20 seconds, shaking with my eyes rolled up so only the whites showed.

That sounds awful! Maybe you should get your blood sugar checked?

yeah, yipes, amari's mama! that sounds scary. i passed out on an airplane once for a few seconds during my last pregnancy--that was weird. we attributed it to maybe dehydration, maybe low blood sugar...but never really figured it out.

and arismomofkoofie, we're doing different math! i thought that i was due on april 3 and that i will be 11 weeks on tuesday! i'm off to find a calculator, heh.

eta: oh duh, your sig means the month of april, the year 2007. nevermind!

I am feeling much better today. I think that the combination of not eating early enough and my blood volume increasing with being pregnant caused my blood pressure to be too low.

I am trying to enjoy every moment. I will never be this pregnant again in my life, knowing that this is definitely our last baby. But it sure is hard to enjoy being nauseous all day long!
Amy, I am glad you are feeling better. Keep some protein in your body as much as possible.

I'm 10.5 weeks and I am praying the sickness eases up with the second trimester. This has been dreadful.

I will be 11 weeks on Wednesday. I have had more 'morning' sickness with this pregnancy that the others combined. This morning I had dry heaves because I kept the toothpaste in my mouth too long. I had to eat something before I got up because I felt too naueseous. Water and crackers did the trick. My belly is developing nicely, and my breasts are calming down. I have to go back on call on Friday after being off for a month, and I am glad that I will be going back when I am starting to feel better, rather than for the tougest month that's behind me.

Most of all I am looking forward to MOVEMENT!
