<p>The crazy sex dreams have started.  I remember this from my first trimester last time...not such a terrible symptom.  <img alt="smile.gif" id="user_yui_3_3_0_8_130813941649914" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"></p>

Profoundly exhausted. Thank god I don't have a job right now. I wake up with a to-do list, then lurch around uselessly between naps and get NOTHING done. my husband is never home, so things have quickly gone to hell around here! My poor kids (3 and 5) Don't know, I just keep saying I don't feel well & have to go to the Dr. All the time. I really want to get some kind of verification that the baby is viable so I can tell the kids what's up. I've had some weird, vivid dreams, but I'm still waiting for the ex-boyfriends to show up! Desperate for fruit, but the local organic selection is crap, so I'm organizing an expedition to Whole Foods.

<p>My internal thermostat is broken! On minute I'm chilly, the next I'm overheating. Trying to sleep at night is crazy as it's covers on/off/on/off all night!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also had a totally weird dream last night of visiting with the midwives, them running HOURS late for the appointment, my mom coming to find me at the office to freak out at me about having a midwife instead of a doctor (won't happen IRL, I think she'll be a big supporter actually) and eventually having an UC there in the office after hours with DH arriving just in time to catch the baby. Don't know where THAT all came from! lol</p>

<p>haha, I definitely get the crazy dreams, just not always including the sex part. It's funny, cause mine started before I even knew I was pregnant. Should have known.<br>

<p>I've been having a hard time sleeping lately, despite feeling exhausted all day.  I think it's because I am not getting enough exercise.  I am really busy right now on top of feeling constantly exhausted so I haven't been making the effort to fit much exercise it.  I really need to get on it though! </p>

<p>Another new one today - low blood pressure. <span><img alt="greensad.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;"> I measured it at my IL's tonight and it was 108/51.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've always had the occasional stand-up-too-fast-and-get-lightheaded moment but they're happening more and more frequently and then today I was just sitting at the table while my son ate his snack and I felt really woozy. I've done some searching online and hope that watching my hydration and upping my salt intake will help but now I'm a bit concerned about carrying the boys around/going out with them. If my blood pressure drops when I'm not doing anything, what's to say it might not drop while I'm driving, for example! Yikes!</p>

Here's one that just showed up--insane sense of smell. And possibly olfactory hallucinations? I had to evacuate the mall because suddenly all I could smell was baloney!

Ha! I'm the same way. I'm about to throw out all our garlic because that's all I smell when I open the pantry door. It seriously makes me want to retch.

<p>I made toast last night and I thought it smelled like cigarette smoke in the kitchen. Mind you it was 2:30 am so I might not have been fully awake.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've changed my morning route to work (I walk) to avoid the more smelly areas. I definitely can't deal with the alleys, or the street the chicken trucks drive down.</p>

<p>I had the ultimate super-smeller when I was pregnant with my DS. Unfortunately, for my DH that meant he had to shower or at the very least change his shirt before he could come near me. He's a mechanic so he can smell something fierce and toxic when he gets home. What's worse is that I just couldn't stand how he smelled period. It was not fun for either of us. So far, I'm ok. Hopefully, it stays that way this go around. <br>

<p>My husband says that even when not pregnant, I complain that I feel pregnant.  I don't know if some of my symptoms are pregnancy or just my usual state of being.  I often feel nauseous, emotional, tired, and like my pants don't fit.   My sense of smell is incredibly sensitive.  Everything stinks!  I am sooooo emotional.  Just trying to cut myself some slack because I know it's not really me, just hormones.  I'm also working on not complaining but just stating how I feel if I need to without whining or being negative.  I learned a lot through the Spiritual Midwifery book on being positive through labor.  That book made a huge difference in how I dealt with labor during my daughter's birth.  I am using those same techniques with the beginning of this pregnancy.  I really need to start laying around a bit more.  Thinking about using my end of the year bonus and buying a new outside lounge chair and a huge umbrella.  </p>
<p>Most of all- I feel blessed and grateful to be pregnant.  That trumps all.</p>

I feel like I work at a fast food restaurant.<br><br>
Oil is pouring out of every follicle of my skin. My hair hasnt looked so oily and flat since I was 13. I feel like I need 6 showers a day. I have been using witch hazel a ton, but I think Im about to break down and buy some clearisl astringent. <img alt="eyesroll.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/eyesroll.gif">

<p>I've definitely had the sense of smell going on. I didn't have it with my dd, but I'm loving it. Flowers are the most wonderful smell ever, and nectarines. OMG! Delish! Other than that, nothing...</p>

<p>I'm only 18 dpo and fortunately never been one to have much morning sickness, although after our losses I kind of wish I suffered more from it, would be kind of reassuring.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I absolutely have that broken internal thermostat thing, I'm driving with a short sleeve on with my window down, and everyone else has jackets on and their windows up!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Plus my progesterone levels much be ok because my bowels have slowed right down, which has lead to bloat, which I rarely get.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh, and sense of smell, the other day I made a big pot of soup for dinner and was convinced it was off, but everyone else loved it.  I couldn't eat it, so I made some quick scrambled eggs instead, and was then convinced THOSE were rotten, but my LO ate the whole bowl!  I had to wait till girls were asleep before I could enjoy a nice big salad DH made me.  Ah, much better!</p>

<p>OMG the queasiness!!!! I am 6 weeks, and have had it off and on since before i knew I was preggo (mostly tiredness then), but holy cow!!!  I've not puked yet, but am really thinking about it LOL.  I am helping my mom after surgery, and her town is 105 degrees right now!  I am pretty sure that's not helping.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>With DS I was not so queasy, and had aversions to candy.  Um... not this time :lol  Maybe its a girl this time??</p>
