February 2011 > What are your symptoms?
finnegansmom's Avatar finnegansmom 09:04 PM 06-06-2010
I love to discuss symptoms...

How are you feeling and how far along are you?

I'm 4w5d

I have sore nipples, and sporadic soreness in my ovaries, (mostly my left I think) and sometimes some pinchy pully weird pains "down there".

I'm starting to feel pretty exhausted right after I eat dinner.
with my last pregnancy, I would get so tired after dinner I would need to lie down (and let DH clean up).


How are you feeling?

I just 4 weeks, and am soooo tired, and have sensitive nipples. The rest still feels a bit like PMS - twinges around my uterus, that kind of thing.

Also, nauseous. But I've been feeling that way for a couple of months, so it maybe isn't related.

Im totally exhausted as well. Ive been getting really nauseous at different times during the day. Having dizzy spells and food aversions. Ligament pain (already!) in both hips, they got really bad last pregnancy. Mood swings, crying one minute screaming at something the next.
All in all Im sooo happy for these symptoms! Neither miscarriage I had much if any symptoms for so the more the merrier!

ahh the mood swings have been sneaking up on me. Yesterday my husband said "is everything okay?" and I just looked at him and said "I am in a fowl mood... and I could cry"

I'm almost 4 weeks and I have been exhausted, higly emotional, I feel pain in my ovaries similar to o pain on a smaller scale, a fullness in my uterus, frequent bm, and dtd has been painful (probably due to the ovary pain.) No sore boobs or morning sickness yet. But that usually starts around 6-7 weeks for me. And the breast tenderness I have noticed doesn't start right away for me after my first. I plan to cherish every symptom!

I've got sensitive nipples, more exhausted than normal, and the all day queasiness started this last weekend.

I'm tired--walking up even small hills makes me feel wiped out.

My breasts hurt--not just the nipples, the whole things.

I feel sick from time to time, but if I eat, sleep, and drink enough that isn't too bad so far.

I have some sensations in my abdomen, not exactly like period cramps but some pressure.

I'm overly sensitive emotionally.

The cranky mood just hit here. I keep cutting myself off before I snap at people.

I'm tired, and very moody. I've been crampy, but thats how I always am the first few weeks. I almost threw my phone at the screen at the movies the other day because the guy was a jerk...

I think I've been having a bit of heartburn lately....Hmm not a fan. I always had it much much later but I just had some toast for breakfast and now I can feel the burn. Blah.

Mostly cramping & a stretching/pulling feeling going on right now. Oh, and slight nausea - nothing really tastes good to me. VERY strange!

I am 6 weeks today and everything tastes weird and slightly bad... also I think my house smells like garbage. I have been trying to find the source but so far no luck. Might just be my nose lol.
pugmomma's Avatar pugmomma 12:55 PM 06-09-2010
A little cramping, but more of a pressure thing. Really sore boobs. And I totally understand about the tired feeling. I can't seem to make it a full day without wanting to take a nap. I haven't been sick yet, but I noticed yesterday that certain food is starting to make me feel sick to my tummy. And I feel really bloated and have to pee all the time.

I'm about 3 weeks post conception (5w LMP). I was moody a couple days before missed AF and the evening of missed AF I had a massive midnight craving for this cantaloupe gelato that had been in the freezer for 2 weeks because I didn't like it much (that's what started cluing me in to the real possibility of being pg). My right boob is SORE! And my sense of smell is a little heightened. I've also been peeing as much as usual, only without the caffeine to fuel it, so all in all it's more than normal non-pregnant without caffeine.

ETA: I've also been quite crampy, so I was sure AF was going to come until my gut feeling kicked in. I've been mildly crampy on and off since (I had the same thing with my last two pregnancies).

When the Mothering myPregnancy newsletter arrived for this week it said "You may begin to notice that you are responding to many things in your life with stronger emotions than usual." I thought that meant that I might be a little more weepy, which I haven't been, so I didn't pay much attention to it.

Later DP and I were watching TV and she says, "Wow, that pregnancy newsletter was right! You really are reacting more strongly to everything. You've yelled at the TV three times in the last five minutes!"

Ugh, i'm starting to feel crappy....
My house smells like weird bologna. I'm a vegetarian and there is no bologna in my house, but regardless, that's all I can smell.....
it's 7pm, is it too early to go to bed?
sooooo tirreeedddddddd
debra_lea's Avatar debra_lea 10:51 PM 06-09-2010
I am 6 weeks tomorrow, and things are starting to really kick in for me. I was tired cranky, crampy....

Now I am EXHAUSTED (feel like I'm hovering between life and death), and the nausea is starting to stir up. I'm hungry, nothing sounds good. Then I'm starving, but feel sick after I eat. I feel like I'm under a deep fog. I'm forgetful and I feel a little slow (mentally and physically:-)

Yes, it is all coming back to me. I need to remind myself that this only a phase and I will survive.

I was trying to convince myself that my "symptoms" are all in my head...well...maybe not. I am about 5 week and I am starting to feel like crud. I am nauseated, tired, and I have diarrhea everytime I eat (sorry if that was TMI). I am also very sensitive right now and easily overwhelmed....just typing all of this makes me want to cry . Luckily since I have done this so many times before I know that this to will end at some point and I am looking forward to my second trimester.

I'm 4w2d today. My symptoms are:
*gagging/dry heaving when I get hungry (I don't remember this from my other pregnancies)
*heartburn/burping
*cramps and twinges
*sore breasts
*total exhaustion. This is the biggest one for me...after dinner I'm wiped out.


I can't remember when m/s started for me before. My first pregnancy ended as a missed miscarriage and I had very few symptoms. My next two pregnancies were great...and lots of morning sickness. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm really anxious for it to start...I feel horrible with it but it make me feel that everything is OK.
portlandmama's Avatar portlandmama 01:57 PM 06-11-2010
Anyone having insomnia. I went from total exhaustion to insomnia and restlessness. I cannot get comfortable. I didn't go through this with my first. Not that I remember anyway. Lord help me since I am so early. I am still having a hard time with this all sinking in. The good news though was that yesterday was my birthday and my DH bought me a new bike trailer (since our last one was stolen) and it fits two...he even bought before he knew I was pg.
korey's Avatar korey 02:48 PM 06-11-2010
portlandmama - YES! I am having bouts of insomnia, too!

I'm so tired at night, but some nights it takes me forever to fall asleep. It doesn't help that I'm constantly getting up to pee. I think my mind races, too, but not about anything bad or anything in particular.

It just sucks because I'm sooooo tired!
Twinklefae's Avatar Twinklefae 03:03 PM 06-11-2010
portlandmama - me too!!! I went to bed at 10 last night, and tossed and turned until past 1am. I'm so tired all the time, but I just can't sleep!
Mrs-Mama's Avatar Mrs-Mama 05:53 PM 06-12-2010
I'm not even officially "late" yet ...the only symptom I really have is slightly sore nipples when DD nurses. My morning sickness usually kicks in at 5 weeks and around the same time those little glands appear on my areolas.
youngwife's Avatar youngwife 06:42 PM 06-12-2010
Been in bed ALL day today! I am tired like no body's business, nauseous, and just feel like you-know-what! I feel like I have the flu!!!

Oh, and I think I might be a little cranky!!
Twinklefae's Avatar Twinklefae 10:09 PM 06-12-2010
My boobs are suddenly SO sore - I think I might dig out some breast pads to protect them.

Also, completely out of my mind hormonal - had a mental breakdown because we are out of nacho chips. Bawling and crying and yelling. DH ran out to get some - the man is a saint some days!
