I am surprised to be feeling decent. No major nausea or food aversions yet, not many headaches...I'm just tired, dog tired. I get some pulling/muscle stretching pains sometimes and my tummy will now NOT suck in any longer, sometimes feeling bloated, sometimes not. I think it is just my super stretched out bits and a heavy uterus filling with tissue/blood/stuff that helps it hang out. Anyway, not nice to be poking out already :(

I'm didn't have any early symptoms, but in the last several days I've had pretty constant low-level nausea :p I got up at 4:30 am and had a popsicle and that helped. More fatigued than usual (which my mom keeps asking about, and we're not sharing news yet) but I had sleep issues before pregnancy anyway. All in all, not feeling too bad.

I'm just over 5 weeks. I've been pretty tired for the last week or so. I've also been getting some bloating and cramps at night. The cramps were starting to worry me, but I haven't had any spotting so I'm trying to stay positive. I'm HUNGRY all the time. Nauseous for the first time today as well.

I'm not even 5 weeks, so feeling pretty normal. Except, my tummy won't suck in all of a sudden (I noticed on Saturday, which is why I tested this morning.) I don't get terribly sick, but I do get nauseous. Let's all pray for healthful, easy pregnancies, right?!?

I am 6w5d and had some nausea last week and was so excited! But I haven't had any in the last 3 or so days :( With my miscarriage in the spring, I felt surprisingly great with no morning sickness and my husband kept saying something was wrong (I have had terrible all day sickness with the others)- I hate that he was right. I am willing to have every symptom under the sun if it means a healthy pregnancy this time!! I am really hoping that the nausea comes back.

I've been nauseous for about 2 weeks now. Pretty much all day long. At first it was reassuring now I'm like "How much longer?!" haha!

emusing - How are you doing? I can imagine I'd be nervous after that experience as well. *hugs*

So days after all my symptoms went away, I had bloodwork done to check my Hcg levels. Amazingly they came back high :smile: Then on Thursday, I had an Ultrasound done to check on everything. It was pretty traumatic for me after my last experience just in March so I was thankful DH was with me. They found a baby! And a heartbeat!!! :heartbeat I am so relieved! The last few days I have been having morning ughishness (I know thats not a word), no nausea per se, but just feeling all over gross. Whatever it is, I will take it and say its a symptom :wink:

I am having a really hard time not telling my kids. They have been talking amongst themselves about having a, or several, more babies in the family since around when I lost the last one. Its really cute to hear their conversations about where a new baby will fit in the car, where it will sleep (apparently in my oldest sons bed with him), what it will like to play with... I just really want to tell them my secret and see their reaction! But - I won't yet, not until we are further along and I am more sure it will stick.

Hello! I'm feeling blessed to be back here. I have 5 children age 18 to 6 and am expecting our 6th. Wonderful news ... but I feel wretched. Less nauseated and tired than the others, but dealing with it less well. I'm taking tons of magnesium (and epsom salt baths) and solid solid nutrition to try to keep my blood sugar steady (I have never had any kind of diabetes, but find that nausea is worst when my b.g. is lowish), and it's working, but I wish it would just leave me alone.

What I really need is a midwife. I'm north of Atlanta and all the good midwives I've used before have retired, switched to home births, or moved. The hospital births I've had with these women were phenomenal, more like birth center births. I need that again.

Congratulations to you all!
