Now that you all mention it, me too! I feel this way too, but I don't remember feeling like this with #1.
I hope it goes away....

Actually, I don't think it goes away. It may actually get worse into the second trimester. It just depends on the woman I guess. For me it's pretty bad. Like right now, I've got these annoying low grade period like cramps. I'm hoping it passes soon and all is well.

The groin pain is how I knew I was pregnant the first time. But this time the pain was so bad I thought I had given myself a Hernia!!!

I still get it some and am reassured whenever I feel something.

This is also my 6th pregnancy and I am not feeling any symptoms at all. It's very early, though - I'll be 4 weeks tomorrow. I remember with the others having +++ hpt's, but not "feeling" pg. yet, and wishing I'd feel just a little bit queasy so i was sure I was really pregnant, then around 6 weeks when I start puking multiple times a day wondering why I ever wished for this. So I'm trying to just enjoy the next 2 weeks of not feeling pg. yet.

You guys are making me hopefull talking like that.

Earlier this week thought I'd pulled a lower ab-muscle because it hurt if i stretched... and today i got what could be compared to AF cramps but really nowhere at all near as bad as I get them... sort of like comparing a grape to a watermelon... they're usually excruciating, and this is like "meh whatever"

but again... still dont know if i am for sure no AF yet and no BFP since monday

but I do have those symptoms and was just thinking I was crazy for considering it might be because I'm pregnant lol.

round ligament pain started right away for me this time too, before I tested (although I think I was already 18dpo or so when I tested, not sure). I was putting my DD in her crib and felt it, I tested the next day

I am peeing like 20 times a day- at least! At first I was like, "hmm, this is amusing"- now it's driving me insane. DH has always joked that I have the bladder of squirrel, now it's more like the bladder of a tiny bird. Except every time I go there's TONS of pee! What's up with that? I guess I've been upping my water intake but not enough to warrant this every 20 minutes! The past few days I've been getting up 3 times a night! I had a presentation to make yesterday at a big conference and behind the podium I was squeezing my knees together...

I feel like :Puke All day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I drank some fresh ginger root tea steeped for an hour, and it actual worked at taking away any nastiness. I will keep doing this.

I am also super hungry. I can't stop eating! I just remembered how I put on 50lbs with last pregnancy.

I seem to have developped afternoon nausea. I feel quite good in the morning, slight hint of nausea before breakfast, but generally feeling good with loads of energy....then after lunch I start feeling rather icky with a big belly ache, indigestion and feeling really cold : and that gradually tails off in the early evening to be replaced by tiredness.

TBH I'm beginning to doubt I am actually pregnant...doesn't feel at all like it did last time

The only thing I am feeling is that weird fuzzy brain, something is different fogginess that I had with my DS as well. He was 19 months and three days when it went away. I will never forget the day, I woke up and sometime mid morning I realized that "I" was back, clear headed and focused again. Does anyone else get this??!!

My BFF calls it "pregnancy brain." I myself feel pretty unfocused and distracted lately. Clumsy, too. I blame it on preoccupation with being pregnant.

I'm 5w2d today. My bb's are swollen and sore pretty much all the time now. I've also been tired, my sleeping patterns have changed, I'm a bit more emotional. I'm not peeing a whole lot more than normal, but I have to get up in the night now. I've also been colder than normal. I see that a couple of other women have also mentioned this. Is this a normal pregnancy symptom? I've been worried that it might mean that my progesterone level is too low.

I was thinking that I didn't really have many symptoms but reading your posts, maybe I do. Here's what I have:

* Small bit of brownish spotting a few days before the BFP

* Periodic mild cramping

* Spacy! I left the car on oustide my house yesterday for an hour : Its a Prius so there's a "power" button and I guess I forgot to push it.

* Slow bowels or diarrhea. Mostly slow.

* Tired - sometimes paralyzingly so

* Very active dreaming

* Creamy discharge

* Super thirsty

* Mild heartburt (very unusual for me)

* Burpy

* Brief waves of nausea

* Sore lower back - it was really sore yesterday and slightly better today but ouch!

* Slightly sore boobs but only it I bump them just so


I was not really sick with DS. I had food aversions and was tired but I don't remember being really sick. I was reading "Fearless Pregnancy" and it says that nausea is NOT necessarily a sign of a healthy pregnancy. I sure hope that's right cuz I am practically urp phobic so if I could skip that part that'd be great!

First and foremost, Mama to Owen blahblah.gif (7/21/04), Annalieseenergy.gif  (7/29/09), and somebody new bigeyes.gif  (due Feb 2012), and wife to Andrew (9/12/98). Also passionate about and loving the work I do in Organizational Development.

I am 20dpo now and my nips are getting a little sore, mostly noticable when ds latches on....and a little sleepy.

that is all, not reassuring, but at least I am not sick and chasing a toddler

Today I felt a lot of "happenings" down in my lower belly. Lots of stretching, on and off cramping, and some other weirdness. I'm so excited to think that an itty bitty baby is forming inside of me right now. This is likely my last and I really plan on enjoying this pregnancy :

hello mamas:

after reading all the posts I am feeling a little better about being relatively symptom-free but I am only 4 wks along. And like someone else wrote, I can't remember what it felt like when I was pg the 1st time round.

Although I totally have pregnancy brain, I can't remember anything. And I have been having lower back pain and some mild period-like aches, but no spotting or anything. And I am peeing all the time....

So we'll see....(come to think of it, I vaguely remember feeling fine, until about 6 wks then I had morning (day-night) sickness until about 14 wks.

I really hope all is well in there...my appt with my midwife isn't until Jan 6th.

Not a whole lot happening here. Got the on and off sore boobs, and I'm ready to pass out by 9pm every night. I remember with ds I started getting m/s 5 days before I even got a BFP. This time not so much. We'll see what song I'm singing in a couple weeks...
