This is just a ruse to get sympathy as I feel like absolute CRAP. :LOL<br><br>
If the theory that pregancies are affected by different genders is anything, then this one is definitely going to be another boy.<br><br><br><br>

With ya!<br>
I am vascillating between feeling pretty darn good and just totally exhausted and nauseated. Am having trouble sleeping tonight. I feel like I drank a bottle of glue or something. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sick"><br>
I have been sobbing out loud over things like a sappy short story I read this morning and <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: Dr. Phil today while folding laundry. I felt like such a freak. I was sobbing and laughing at myself for sobbing at the same time. Pregnancy is a trip. So happy to be pg again, even if it does make me feel gross and bloated and sick and crazy....

From about 5 weeks (I am 10 now) I have been sick from sunrise to sundown. Very different from #1 I had typical morning sickness then and bad migranes so I guess I will take the all day sickness over migranes.

Yeah, I'm guessing I'm just going to be in for all the other crap I had with DS. Sigh.<br><br>
Yesterday SUCKED. I'm feeling better today, though, and am going to go eat something (again!) shortly. Then I'm going to Yoga. I figure that focusing on my muscles and breathing will give me a break for a little while.<br><br>
Tomorrow, when I take DS to Kindermusik, I'll buy some Baby's Bliss Morning Sickness Magic and see how that helps. Maybe some seabands, too.

Ok - I live in France, not happy with that one - but nevermind. Anyway I was gestational diabetic with No 1 and again with No 2, they want me to go into hospital for 2/3 days <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> so that they can start me on insulin - with dd this never happened and the docs trusted the patient enough that they would get the right dose etc (I'm not that stupid). I told the doctor that I wouldn't leave my dd with anyone (as I don't know anyone I would trust for that amount of time) I have no relatives here either, 'now MADAME that's a problem didn't you know?' Everything is a problem here I don't speak the language well enough with all the Vous and tu to explain properly and I feel really frustrated and ignored and angry that they insist that since I nurse my dd i must be really strange and it's normal to give a bottle at 3 months, they look at me as if I have horns on my head. I swear I could kill them all.<br><br>
Just to give you the picture of how things work here you have to go to a doctor (+pay him) to get a presciption to get a blood test done (the pee stick isn't good enough) to go to the laboratory (+pay them) to get the result to take back to the doctor to get a presciption (+pay him) for more blood tests done (+pay them), everytime you see someone at all you pay - so much for the wonderful 'free' system here, I'm from scotland and never paid a penny to give birth to my daughter <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead"> - I swear I could kill them all, this is when I feel like sh1t and have my 2 year old who wants to nurse in front of the doctors and they tell me that didn't I know it was really bad for her to nurse at this age. I WANT TO GO HOME.<br><br>
OK I've finished now.<br>

Freya - I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time in France. I hope it gets better. About the nursing your toddler, know what I say? F 'em!! If she wants to nurse and you want to nurse her, it's your perogative. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mischievous.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="mischief"><br><br>
Selissa - Oh honey! I totally get the emotional stuff. I was very teary last night. Just everything. I happened to flip on the tv while working yesterday and caught the very end of A Baby Story and it was a great natural water birth with midwives (they're usually hospital/OB/drugs births) and I was totally bawling. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br><br>
Here's what I've been telling myself: this WILL end. There IS a finite period to this. :LOL

Rachel - You have all my sympathy! It just sucks getting gyn care in a country where you don't know the language, doesn't it? I am glad to be back in an English speaking country, myself. My Japanese m/c experience was enough to make me grateful for that! So how much do you have to pay each time you go to see someone else? I hope it's not too much. It just sounds so frustrating. I know a bit of French, but when I was last there, I seemed no one could understand what I was saying. Arg, "That is a problem, don't you know?" business is irritating even me. I wish I could slap them for you.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> to all the rest of you hungry, sick, tired, and emotional mamas! I'm right there with you. Am trying not to complain too much (not that you shouldn't, I'll listen <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">), as I'm just happy baby is sticking. Small complaint: Every morning I feel like my bladder and/or uterus is going to fall out. It is just so achy down there (because of full bladder?), each morning when I go to pee, I'm convinced that this is the morning when all will fall out. Just curious if anyone else has this feeling.

Full like you're engorged/swollen? I mean like do you feel it in your labia and pelvic area, or all internal? I'm asking because one of my pg symptoms the first time around was tremendous swelling, including my entire pelvic area. It was NOT fun. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br><br>
BTW - my last post, where I wrote "Freya" - that was intended for ewe+lamb. Do I have pregnancy brain or what?<br><br>
Wait - what?<br><br>

Hi Everyone, Can I just jump in? I've been hesitant to climb on board until the 3 month mark as several of my friends have been having early losses...but the thought of whining just a bit <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> is too much to ignore!<br><br>
At 7 weeks, I'm crabby, exhausted, headachey, nauseous for full days (in oddly what seems to be alternating days), and have a weird sensation of my lower abdomen actually stretching to full capacity (kinda like being full, but not in the belly). This I did not experience with #1, and the nausea (for now) seems less than with one, so I am wont to complain.<br><br>
Mmgarda - have we met IRL? My DD is just 3 months younger than your DS. I used to post pretty regularly on the LA boards.<br><br>
Rachel - it seems so sad that a place as lovely as Paris should be so awful to have a baby! So sorry!<br><br>
Anyway, hi to all...look forward to experiencing this trip with you...may lurk more than post, due to an active DD and life in general...but hello!

I fee like total SH*T! sorry, just had to get that out. I'm currently trying to keep down my lovely cereal and toast dinner. My dd's have been eating <b>way too much</b> fast food because I am so sick. I don't want to look at food, let alone prepare it. I'm having a guilt trip about that though, and have told myself no more fast food. I will just have to suck it up and deal with it. I have been losing my temper alot lately, and I have been pushing my poor children off my lap because my stomach hurts all the time. I've started puking all the time, then I get ravenously hungry. I day dream of huge dinners full of food, but can only manage cereal. I can't wait for this torture to end!!!!!!!!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banghead.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banghead">

****WARNING GRAPHIC -- M/C MENTIONED****<br><br>
Well, in the morning I am "full" in that I'm full of urine and can't wait to pee. That's not the feeling I'm talking about, though. It's just this internal pelvic achy feeling. Like my bladder is sore and stretched from holding all the pee (even though I get up multiple times to pee through the night), and sometimes my uterus aches, too. Maybe this is just the normal stretching of pregnancy. I can't remember feeling this way the first two times, though. When I feel all achy this way in the morning, I can hardly believe my baby doesn't just fall into the toilet. I know, that's not a pretty picture I'm painting. I guess I'm just paranoid; I expect to miscarry at any time. I am very close to the time when I miscarried with my last pregnancy. At this point, I'm afraid I might find miscarrying as normal as the pregnancy continuing. I seem to think there is an equal chance of either occurring. It's like, hmmmm, will this be the morning that a bloody chunk falls into the toilet? Just pee... I guess not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

Just wanted to thank you all for your kind words - makes such a difference. I spoke to my midwife last night and she's going to try and take things in hand and help with the unreasonable docs!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It just so happens that she is scottish and into homeopathy, bach remedies etc so thank heavens I have her. DH is being wonderful he's going to take the afternoon off next week so that we all go together and be a strong family unit!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> And my DD is just being the most wonderful little person (today!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">) so I am feeling much better.<br><br>
As for the money and payment side of things docs cost between 30-80 euros, blood tests 20 just to find out if you are pregnant or not, the price varies depending on the tests you have - some of which are obligatory!! - I hate to think what the u/s is going to set us back, we do get some of the money back from the SS but it just makes, this month especially, things hard because we will be continually out of pocket until the baby is here.<br><br>
I just found things so much easier with the system back home and people actually try to help you there - here you have to make yourself seem really stupid before they'll actually slow down the talking or even speak up a little. Surly checkout folk are the worst!! Anyway I'm moaning again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> , have to get out of that one otherwise I don't thing I shall ever stop.<br><br>
i must make a list of what I like about here - however, I fear that it will be quite short!!! Just to answer - yes Paris is a beautiful city, but in small doses, life is just too complicated here for me. I'm a wee country bumpkin at heart and long to go home to be beside the sea and the mountains and breath fresh clean air. Oh la la!!<br>
love to you all<br>

I go between feeling great and feeling exhausted and nauseated like one of the other posters. My main concern is my mental emotional health. I have anxiety and depression and I feel like I have rage. I may have to get something for this because I am being an awful mother and wife. I never got like this with my other pregnancies but this time I feel like I could kill someone for looking at me the wrong way. Then I feel depressed and weepy. This is not good for me or my kids. My husband has even said I need to get help. Ugh. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

Pom - I don't know if we've met IRL, but I definitely know your handle! I think we've shared a lot of threads! Are you in the LA area?<br><br>
Binah - the sensation you're describing sounds remarkably like what I felt when pg w/ #1. It was just pure blood engorgement. You can't tell because you can't really see your own labia unless you're looking in a mirror, but maybe that's it? You could just be really engorged with blood right now as the baby grows. WHo knows - there are just so many weird random pregancy thingys!<br><br>
Rockerbaby - don't stress about the food. Seriously. You do what you have to to get through this period. If the food issue is really stressing you out, could DH/P help you make a few big batches of stuff over the weekend? Chili, stew, casseroles, etc.? Then you can dish it out to your DD's, but not have to cook. KWIM?<br><br>
Rachel - great to hear you have a support network! Hang in there.<br><br>
OntheFence - I swear, it's JUST hormones. Honestly. I was a complete and total basket case with my first pg. But maybe you could talk to your Midwife or OB? I mean, just to set your heart at ease? But I just wanted you to know, you're totally not alone. When my hormones are going, I get totally fired up and scream and yell and am an absolute b!tch. It's really stressful, I know, but it will pass. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I didn't think this post applied to me because I don't have real bad ms but my moods are horrible. I too cry at the drop of a hat. Any kind of sad story in the news gets me. Plus there's the rage too. I can't take DH anymore when we have a disagreement. I've been feeling terrible because we have been teaching DS to use the potty and I think I have been pushing too hard. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: Last weekend he got all moody and sad and started getting sick. I'm convinced it's because I've been a horrible mommy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bawling.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bawl"> All because dcp thinks once we put him in underpants we should never go back to diapers. Stupid advice I now think. The poor little guy just felt too much pressure. So, I'm not very happy with her either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
Rachel, the French systems sounds horrible and the language barrior must make it so much worse. I'm glad things are going better though.
