I'll be 6 weeks tomorrow. I wake up with ravenous hunger in the middle of the night and have nausea 24/7, dry heaves etc; this started full force yesterday. Irritable too.
Yesterday was a bad day for me nausea-wise. DH had to work in the morning, and since we'd gotten home late the night before from a 2.5 hour drive from my parents' house, he suggested I just sleep. We got up at 1, after he'd come home to get lunch and go grocery shopping. Lunch barely happened, let alone grocery shopping! I almost passed out on the table. (Perhaps from dehydration? I can't seem to drink enough during a day!!) Thank goodness we still had enough food to satisfy his 18 y.o.! Today is considerably better, but there are days where the entire thing is plagued by nausea -- no vomiting yet.
Sore nipples most days, sometimes sore breasts. DH says that they're getting bigger. I can't tell. :) I have back and/or abdomen cramps multiple times a day, every day. They almost feel like pre-period cramps, which worried me at first. Last week went to the doctor's for the nausea and they did an u/s to see how far I was. Cried for about the whole thing. What a miracle!!
With both my previous pregnancies, I thought I was going to die of nausea. It was horrible. I'm counting my blessings that thus far, there has been no morning sickness. However, I'm seriously starving all the time, and if I don't eat (even after I just got down eating only the hour before) I start feeling sick. I'm telling you this is a sick twisted joke this child is playing on me. I told my husband I'm spanking him when he comes out for making me eat so much, LOL. I'm only 6w6d. But I feel we are pregnant with a boy, because I naturally call the baby a he.
But seriously, I know I'm NOT starving, but if I don't eat something substantial every 2 hours, I'm so sick to my stomach. Also breast tenderness has started much earlier than previously.
I have been feeling "off" the past few days. My nose is running like a faucet (although I hear it is ragweed season), I am a blubbering idiot, and I can't get up in the morning. I am crampy and although I am pretty much starving all the time, nothing is appealing to me. So I eat what I think I want, but it doesn't satisfy me so I try something else. blah.
