I am. Ugh.

I'm nearly ten weeks along... tired of feeling so nauseous all the time... none of my clothes fit anymore, I can't stand to have anything squeeze my belly, but I don't look pregnant. Well, maybe I look a little pregnant but at this point it's all squish and no baby!

I think I'll feel better about it all after my first appointment, which is next Friday... having some doppler or u/s reassurance that everything is okay would help my mindset a lot, I think. I don't really have any reason to think anything's wrong, but I can't help but worry.

Not really but I am so stressed about getting ready for this unexpected little one that I want all the time I can get and not rush it. But I totally understand what you mean. Hope time passes quickly for you.

I am so ready for the 2nd tri. I don't have any nausea this time, but the fatigue is killing me. I don't like not having the energy to just do everyday things with my kiddos, the house is a wreck, and most nights there is just no way I can stand there long enough to cook and then clean up. I had a couple days of feeling much better, but it has hit hard again today. My dd is too much of a monkey for me to be able to lie in one spot very long. She keeps finding her way up on top of the kitchen counters!

Me!! I am about 9 1/2 weeks and I am still nauseated off and on and extremely tired. I also feel irritable and I'm worried about m/c. Once I hit the second trimester, I think I'll relax a bit about the baby's health and I will be thrilled to feel better! In fact, when I saw that the April DDC was added, I felt like doing cartwheels!

I am ready, too. I want to eat a normal meal again. I want to not feel sick anymore (because I'm not sick, darn it)!

Edit: When does the 2nd trimester start, anyway?

me too. I am ready to hit that 20 week mark more than anything. My mc was at 14 weeks last Nov, so I am anxious to be past that mark and to hear a heartbeat and see our little Zoomer.

Not just a yes, but a HELL yes! I am so freaking sick of the nausea and vomiting. I finally resorted to buying some Sea Bands tonight, and they are helping a little bit. I used to use those for car sickness when I was a kid. I am also tired, moody, and I can't concentrate at work (it doesn't help that I hate my job, but, eh).

Of course I also want to "look" pregnant as nearly everyone else mentioned as well.

TOTALLY-- I've been starting to dream about food, but then I wake up and chicken out on actually buying whatever it was, or cooking whatever it was.

Right now I just HATE getting hungry since nothing sounds good.

11.5 weeks now.

Must. Keep. Going.

I threw a fit the other day because NOTHING fits right. My maternity clothes are too lose and baggy, and my regular clothes are too tight. SO I have one pair of maternity capri that fit, which would work if the kids would stop using me as a napkins, and a pair of sweats. Sigh....

Cyrusmama, me too! My miscarriages are between 15 and 18 weeks, so I won't rest until about oh....32 weeks. Bad news is that once I get past that, I'm guaranteed to go overdue.

I am ready for it to be bover. But I don't have morning sickness, or headaches or anything bad. I just want to move into the stage of feeling baby and actually LOOKING pregnant more, LOL.

I just got my due date pushed back from the 14th to the 20th, so the first trimester is seeming like an eternity now. I'm ready to get past being so tired and grumpy. I'm ready to start looking pregnant, too. My belly is definitely bigger, but not obviously pregnant looking.

Definately. I'm 11 weeks today and things are improving. I still have hyperemesis but it's well under control and I'm able to take less meds than before. Also, I'm finally well enough to leave the house for short periods of time! I've been stuck lying down since about 4.5 weeks except for my weekly dr appt. (I'm high risk for first trimester so I saw an RE weekly - I just finished up with my last RE appt!) So, this is a HUGE improvement!

MarieAngela, that's a bummer. I had the opposite happen to me last time around - I was about over a week farther along than I thought! It was awesome to have the first trimester shortened!! I wasn't sure of dates that time, but I know the dates of everything this time around... so no hope of that again.

Ughhh... I feel extra gross today.

Definitely ready! I haven't thrown up in 2 days, knock on wood, but still feel really yucky and tired and bloated...
With ds it eased up and away by 13-14 weeks, with dd I didn't see ANY relief until 16-17 weeks. I think it's another boy so we'll see!

In love with Dh since 1998. We created Ds (7.1.03), Dd (10.16.06) and Dd (3.16.09).

I am SO READY for this trimester to be over, although it looks like with real fatigue just starting, I might be in for a rough second trimester. But who knows? Sometimes symptoms can disappear so suddenly.

Time to take the rugrats to swim team!

Yes, I'm very grateful to be pulling out of the first trimester here in a few weeks.

FINALLY the nausea has subsided. I'm feeling a lot better these past 5 days then I have in the last few weeks. :

I agree about clothes not fitting. I just given up and started wearing maternity clothes. They are big and baggy at this point but who cares...I'm comfortable.

I'm officially 10 weeks today and my nausea has picked up over the last couple of day. As if it weren't bad enough! Wow, I'm so ready to be over this. Hopefully just 3 more weeks or so.
