So I'll post the first pregnancy hint of the week:
Do not wake up from a nap, remember that you haven't taken your prenatal, down a big glass of OJ and then take your prenatal even though you haven't eaten in about 4 hours.

Don't do it.

I will be away from the computer until afternoon tomorrow. Talk to you all then!

Hi Ladies! It is soooo early for me. 6:15am. I don't usually see this time of day.
I have been up since 5. My 15 month old ds woke up and I couldn't get back to sleep. Annoying.
Anyway, feeling good for the most part. Just have to keep food in my belly!! Hope everyone is good!

Well, I couldn't sleep at all last night!! Too excited about the fact that Adina will be heading over here any day now--just as soon as she believes her 18 day LP and faint positive test!!
Woke up this morning feeling yucky, that's unusual for me, I'm usually sick at night--but since I also usually miscarry, I'm gonna take any change as a good thing!!
My back is feeling much better this morning, thank God!!! It was one of those things where I knew a muscle relaxer would help tremendously but of course could not take one!!! What a pain in the but!! (literally actually--and the leg!)
I just can't bring myself to eat anything, tea with some sugar is sitting well, but I just feel like if I try to eat anything solid I'll have my head in the toilet and after puke fest this morning after attempting to brush my teeth, I just don't want to go back there yet! How the heck is one supposed to be able to deal with that anyway--I mean I have to brush my teeth, especially in the morning, but it's fairly counterproductive to puke everytime the brush moves in your mouth!!
So how is everyone else feeling today???

Morning Girls.
This is my first ever pregnancy, so i'm not really sure what to expect. I've been a tiny bit naseus today, but really only in the sense that i get when i'm famished. So I need to figure out when to eat, etc etc. I can't eat within an hour of taking my Synthroid or it will screw up the absorption. So that is weird.

What prenatals are ya'll on. I need to go get some out of my next paycheck. I'm only doing b-complex and calcium supplements right now. I would *love* a liquid prenatal, swallowing pills is not my favorite thing

I have a call out to the midwifes office....
and as soon as they open, i'll call my family doc for an appointment because we wikll need to get a plan together for managing my thyroid. And being as how I'm going to do a homebirth, there won't be an OB involved.

I'm actually still in shock, and not quite to the point where the words "i'm pregnant" come out of my mouth smoothly....

So nice to see you here Joy!! I'm currently on a prescription prenatal called Preg-Vit, my ND liked the formula so I figured what the heck, especially since it's covered by our drug plan!
I get the feeling from over on the TTC boards that this is going to be one busy due date club!!

Well, my meeting this morning was cancelled. Good thing too because I could not have handled waiting until the afternoon to see Adina's chart!

Not much to report here. Still waiting to hear about my labs...this is the major disadvantage of being in a tiny practice with 2 midwives.

Joy: There is a thread about prenatals going where some people have listed theirs. I use Rainbow Lite Prenatal One. You can get them at Whole Foods. I am pretty sure they also make a powder that you disolve in water. A friend used it and said it tasted pretty palatable.

Talk to you all later.

HELLO EVERYONE. oops. Shannon, i had that with the pg with my dd. It was terrible LOL but you just brush gently! Hope it passes soon and that your numbers stay great!!

joy, i take shaklees. i had a terrible time with the rx prenates and feel that was one of the reason i had such terrible m/s with my dd. it is a pill but so much gentler on my stomach. have you checked the natural food stores? they usually have a nice selection of vitamins to choose from.

well i feel simply peachy whihc is worrying me lol. my boobs still hurt some but thats about it. every once in a while i feel my uterus, peeing a lot (but could be from increaed water) and seem to be hungrier/more tired. but nothing conclusive.

i knew i should have kept temping LOL! i'm feeling optimistic but scared, still trying to just enjoy each day as it comes. i get a real kick walking around work thinking "HA I'M PREGNANT AND YOU ALL DON'T KNOW"
: i'm crazy.

anyone need new bras yet? i'm trying to decide if i should buy some at lunch today. i seem to be overflowing my regular ones but i'd hate to buy new maternity ones and not need them. they're not uncomfy yet but i'm into instant gratification LOL! i just want to surround myself with pg stuff! mags, clothes, books, etc. etc.

Hi Good Morning
Today I woke up with horrible abdominal cramps. I was pretty scared. It turns out it was just gas. My ligament is hurting all ready. It pulled when I rolled over the other morning. I remember it happening with my other pregnanciees. My boobs are not as sore as they were with Gareth which makes me suspicious. With my first preg they weren't as sore either. I haven't been feeling any nausea either. I guess once you have a miscarriage you are always cautious. Any differenc and negative thoughts appear. I'm trying to keep positive Today I turn five weeks. I just can't wait to get past 12. I think It's the beginning of August.

What does ligament pain feel like. I might be having some. Like a random twinge on the left or right side of the abdomen every so often?

Big welcome to Heveasoul

Just found out my beta from Friday was only 84. It was 52 on Wednesday, so it did not double. I am leaving right now to go get another drawn and based on that we will decide when to schedule an u/s.

I am sitting here crying. I just don't want to have to go through this again.

Any sticky vibes/prayers would be greatly appreciated.
