The weirdest thing is that I don't have nausea so much as a terrible gag reflex. Does that make sense? Everything below my collarbone feels normal, but from there up I just feel bleh. I barely made it through my trip to Costco today!
Thanks! I ended up losing more weight due to stomach flu, but now that I can occasionally feel movement (11 1/2 wks) I feel a bit better about baby being fine.I am 13 weeks. Feeling mostly fine now. I did an early gestational diabetes screen due to multiple risk factors and blew it out of the water. Not a big surprise and easily diet controlled (so far). Maybe its good to know now that I absolutely can't eat my way through the holiday stress, haha.
WRT bigger moms - no, you don't have to gain any weight at first. Depending on how big you are you might not gain much at all. I didn't gain much if anything last time without diet restriction or anything, but I am over 200 pounds and fairly active so that seems to work for me.
We found out through the NIPT that we are having another boy. Telling my kids - both older boys - helped me get excited about another boy. Of course we are so thrilled that the NIPT looked fine and are just now starting to connect with the idea that this pregnancy might actually stick and be healthy! So exciting.
I can feel a little movement the last few days which is really fun.
