A new, lovely symptiom for the week (besides this wonderful MS that has hit full-on)...greasy hair. It is the grossest thing ever and no matter how much I wash it, it just gets worse.

^OMG! Is that really a sign!? I just thought it was because DH is forever combing my hair with his fingers when we're on the couch! It's rediculous! Thank goodness I live in ponytails!

I've had really bad gas. Better today because I ate bland food, but last night was awful.

I'm 4 weeks and so far, just mild nausea in the evening, very mild heartburn occasionally and some crampy, lower belly (making room for baby) feelings. I keep hoping I'll be one of the lucky ones who doesn't get MS, but from what I read, it looks like I have a week or 2 to gorge myself on flavorful, odorous foods. Also yesterday, after going to the farmers' market, I thought I would pass out from exhaustion.

I was starting to worry that I didn't have any symptoms (no complaints), but after typing this I guess I do have mild symptoms. Here's to hoping it stays that way! Can you tell I'm a first time mom??

I've been nauseous, tired and a bit grumpy. My boobs are incredibly sore and ds does not understand why I get grumpy when he jumps on them or pushes on them to get my attention.

Heightened sense of smell
Constant peeing
Ravenous, although today I was a bit less so and had to force some of my food...
And today also first time feeling a bit queasy, guess m/s is on it's way!
General grumpiness blah feeling
Off and on mild cramping
GAS!
And my left boob has gotten bigger and the areola darker... but my right is making no signs of catching up! It's pretty funny, I'm totally lopsided!

Oh, these remind me. I've had the heightened sense of smell for about a week or more but it comes and goes. The best was when I thought I had a brain tumor because I could smell the new scented kitty litter from three rooms away.

And my boobs *seem* a bit fuller, but I'm still not certain.

Yup. This was me two weeks ago. Now, I am carefully considering everything I put in my mouth, in hopes that it won't make me gag. I say this not to scare you, mind, but because I was just as concerned about not having symptoms. Now, I'd like them to go away a little bit please.

I still would like to put in my order for fuller/bigger boobs. Typically, I'm more than perfectly fine with being on the small size (I wear a "nearly" b, how cute ) but if I can have bigger ones for a bit that would be good too.

as of now, nausea/vomiting all day everyday. Even when I drink water! The only thing that has helped even a little is sparkling water... so i bought a case today. The nausea gets especially bad at night (like when I get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom...)

^Any nausea I've had is in the middle of the night too! I thought it was odd. I'm glad to see someone else feels yucky in the middle of the night. Although, I wish we all felt good instead!

I think my m/s has started. But, like I said, it's in the middle of the night when I get up to pee! I've felt awful for the last 2 nights in a row and the thought of trying to eat a saltine makes me want to gag. It's always gone by morning but getting back to sleep and sleeping well is difficult and sometimes doesn't happen at all. *sigh*

My m/s has abated and turned into food aversion 24/7. I would say that the nausea never gets as bad as it was during week 5, when I would have said it was a 7 out of 10 - 10 being vomiting hardcore. I still haven't actually thrown up. I hope I don't! I would say I'm at like a 5 most days, with it sometimes getting up to a 6 or 7. At least it isn't constant like it used to be.

Mine is typically all day until about 4 o'clock. When I get home, I can usually eat, albeit very specific things, unless I take a nap. Then I wake up and it starts all over again!

My boobs are still sore as hell, and I'm starting to lose my waistline. Fat is definitely redistributing around my midsection.

My nails look gorgeous and they are hella strong.

My face continues on with the breaking out, lol. I'm considering a facial this weekend, just to get some of this junk out.

Lately I've been craving ice cold coca-cola classic. Don't try to give me a pepsi. It has to be coca-cola. Weird. I limit it, though, just a bit to get me through the craving!
