Besides the lack of AF...nothing! With DS I had fairly strong cramping that started at 4 DPO and lasted until about 15 weeks. I think this is part of the reason I'm not buying that I'm really pregnant.

with both my others i got this feeling in the back of my throat like i got water in my nose an hour ago...I feel like that.
Also, sore nipples, I have this uncontrollable urge to night wean DS2, but during the day I don't care at all.
I haven't even missed AF yet. that is Monday I think.

Yep!! Totally!!!

Tatas are awful!! To the point where even my armpits hurt!!

Slight cramping off and on. Kind of like a pulling sensation and I have a kind of "full" feeling in the uterus area.

Nausea has already hit...but just a tad...and not to the point where I feel like I'll hurl. Mainly...the minute or two after I wake up I get the nausea come over me...but then it's gone just like that and I'm fine after. It's really nothing to complain about yet.

Exhausted...all...the...time!!!!

Hi All,

I'm tired as can be.
Mildly Nauseous.
A Strong Aversion to Coffee--just as well, I know.
Sore Boobies.
I feel grumpy and impatient. I thought I was having killer PMS, but I guess it's early pregnancy hormones.

Happy Mom of Maeve (6). Always missing my DD2 Daisy (22 weeks--June 2008). After an ectopic at 6 wks (11/08) and a miscarriage at 5 wks (12/09), Rainbow Baby Finn is here (10/3/10)

I'm not looking forward to that part. Last time my face was so bad that a girl at school asked if I had a disease or something. I don't think she'd been around very many pregnant women.

OT....LizzyQ, who's your midwife? I spent three years in SLC while I was going to the U. DS was conceived there but we moved back to Portland when I was 7 months pregnant. I was seeing Jules Johnstun but we interviewed three other HB midwives while we were deciding.

I am deciding between Becky McKinnis at the birth and family place, or Rebecca Williams.

Becky was Sebastian's midwife, and the birth center takes medicaid, and most of my friends who have had a HB went with Rebecca and LOVE her, so I am meeting with her today. I don't know how it will work with finances though

I'll let ya know who I pick!

I hope everything works out! We looked at BFP too but our insurance would only cover it as out-of-network leaving us to pay about $3k out of pocket and we simply couldn't afford it. Worked out well for me though...I wanted a home birth...DH wanted the birth center :LOL

So far sore nips :P I have the same thing around ovulation so I kinda knew what to expect. Makes nursing DD not so much fun, though - I'm hoping it goes away after the first trimester!

Oh, and like another pp - I'm so gassy, from both ends! I remember this from last time, too.

And I'm exhausted...I'm sure having a one year old has nothing to do with that one

So last week I was skipping breakfast most mornings, barely eating lunch and then eating dinner. Bad I know (particularly since I'm usually really good about my diet), but we're trying to move and run a business and chase a 16 mo. The last three days though, if I go more than about 2 hours without eating I get really nauseous. Yuck. I'm a little worried. I didn't have any symptoms (except cramping) until 6 weeks. No cramping this time but the nausea is kicking in awfully early. The one thing I was hoping to avoid...

I suffered with hyperemesis through both of my previous pregnancies, starting at around 6 weeks or so. I knew I was pregnant this time because the nausea started at 3 weeks! That does not bode well for my having an easy breezy pregnancy this time around, either. I'm terrified I'm going to feel even worse this time. We can't afford for me to be that sick, with 2 little ones running around.

I've also been really gassy, which is not something I experienced before. It's a bit embarrassing!

as far as symptoms go....
waking up for hours at a time at night and not being able to go back to sleep.
foggy pregnancy brain (maybe those are connected )

The nausea is here to stay for awhile
I was a little sick to my stomach a few days before I tested but I thought that was due to a headache...guess not. Mine hits about 10am and I have it all day.

Nothing tastes or sounds good except for soup which I'm all out of at the moment!

not too bad yet here....

I have some neasua in the mornings before I eat, and if I let my stomach get completly empty. Yesturday was really bad, only because I think I got too hot, I am a teacher and we had a carnival at school yestruday and I was running around.

I have had a lot of constipation...sorry TMI, I had it with my son as well.

Other than that not a whole lot happening. Which I am kinda thankful for this time around, I had a lot of problems and complication with my son, so we are hoping for a problem free pregnancy.

Ouch, add sore breasts (taking off that bra at night hurts!) and mild constipation to the list. Ugh!

I also had a morning of light spotting the day my period would have normally come, luckily it was over quickly so I didn't panic too much.

Starting on some food cravings already, mostly for salty foods and protein.
