<p>Another week has passed, how's everyone feeling?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am rather symptomless, just bigger boobs, slightly sensitive nipples and hungry.  Oh yeah and creamy undies, which I guess is a good sign that a mucous plug is forming!  No MS anymore and its scaring me. </p>

<p>Mamalimey, what kind of nurse are you?  I think this came up in a prev thread, but I can't remember.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm 7w5d (now that it's after midnight, haha!) and too tired for words.  I'm def bloated.  I'm queasy now and then, and have a general feeling of "gross", but I don't feel nearly as sick as I did with DS. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm also having almost daily lower abd pain/stretching/cramping, and it kind of feels like ligament pain.  It seems really early for that, but I just read that the ute is the size of a softball by the end of this week, so I guess that would take some accomodating.  Also, it's my 3rd baby, so it seems like everything happens sooner.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm trying so hard to get into the Christmas spirit, but all I can do is think about sleep.  I'm making good progress on all the shopping/wrapping/ect, but it feels more like work than pleasure this year.  I'm bummed that it feels that way.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The weeks are flying!  I can't believe I'm almost 8 weeks! </p>

<p>My symptoms have been coming and going. I got my BFP like two weeks ago and I've only had sore boobs for two of those days. I feel kind of nauseated every few days, but it passes quickly. I'm totally exhausted but I've been having trouble sleeping. I'm still nursing/co-sleeping my 14 month old so I'm sure that has something to do with it. I try to take a nap with her during the day, but I just can't fall asleep no matter how tired I feel.</p>

<p>Tamera, I had insomnia with DS.  It was torture.  It felt like the most unfair thing in the world to be so tired and yet unable to sleep.  I hope it passes for you soon!</p>

Double check on insomnia.......heading into work on 4 hours of sleep. Went to bed at 9pm, didn't fall asleep till 1am.....such an unfair symptom and I asked a pharmacist yesterday of melatonin was safe to take, because that often helps me fall asleep, she said "no, not recommended" has anyone taken it during pregnancy before? If so how much?<br><br>

<p>Oh man, me too.  Poor DH will say something completely harmless, and my reaction is to want to completely snap at him!  He's been patient with me :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm always hungry, but I have a hard time thinking of things that sound good to eat.  When I was pregnant with DS, I had the same thing for the first trimester.  The only thing that ever sounded good then was Massaman curry... so I survived on that for 12 weeks (though, my wallet almost did not!).  Last night, I was craving curry again!  <br>

<p>I have almost constant underlying nausea. It's not stopping me from doing anything or even eating, but it is a PITA. It gets worse in the late evening.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am tired a lot, but now that I am on bed rest I'm getting the opportunity to nap, so that is helping a lot.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have tender spots on the very sides of my boobs, and a very bloated tummy. So, yay to symptoms!</p>

<p>Well, up until yesterday's u/s I was conviced I had lost all my symptoms, but I've started having some nausea two days ago.  No vomiting, but a general "yucky" feeling.  Boobs hurt less (and aren't getting bigger), but I am back to feeling tired.  Waking up at night still...sometimes even eating.  Also, my brain doesn't like to think!</p>

<p>7w5d: nauseated all day, tired, easily irritated, showing (little tummy, this is my 2nd and I'm very thin) and bigger breasts.  I also gag when I brush my teeth.  No throwing up yet though!</p>

<p>7w2d - I'm queasy randomly throughout the day and especially when I get hungry which seems to be pretty often, but so far no vomiting. My breast tenderness is less than it was a few weeks ago but still a little sensitive. They seem bigger. But most of all TIRED TIRED TIRED. If I sit still for more than 10 minutes I'm likely to be falling asleep and the rest of the time I'm just wishing I was.</p>

Huh.....my baby brain gave me away at work today......<br><br>
So I am an ICU nurse and today was my third 12 hour shift in 3 days....towards the end of my shift a collegue was helping me reposition a patient when she looked at me and said "you are either sick or pregnant because I have never seen you this disorganized at work before!"....... I looked at her all frazzled and said "well im not sick".......Lol not so sure I should be in charge of human lives at this current point in my pregnancy.<br><br>
I can't wrap my head around the fact that my brain seems dull and hazy.<br><br>
Bring on week 8 symptoms......is that when I get really smart and focused!?!?!?!?!

I don't want to be discouraging, but I've still not recovered the intelligence and ability to focus that I lost during my first pregnancy... too many years of sleep deprivation! <img alt="winky.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif">  </p>

<p>Dude, you're growing TWINS!  EAT!!!!  Seriously, as long as you are eating good food and not candy corns eating is good.  (mmmmh, candy corns)  And yeah...my brain never recovered either...sorry to break that one to you.  Of course you have always been more resilient and together, so you will probably regain SOME ability to function...after your babies are, like, 18.<span>  <img alt="innocent.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/innocent.gif"></span><br>

<p>mamalimey, me too!  I'm finding some of the grosser patients are a lot harder for me to tolerate right now.  I used to have a strong stomach...</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Maurine, I am so so so happy for you that your US went well this week!!</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>At 8w1d, I feel better than I have in days/weeks.  I'm still tired, but I haven't been nauseated in several days, and I'm in a better mood.  I haven't worked since Wed night, that probably has something to do with it.  It almost makes me worried, but worrying doesn't really help anything.  We're not having an US until 20ish weeks; I had one at 8 weeks with DS, and I was telling DH yesterday that it feels weird not to be taking a peek to see if everything is on track.  But really?  Even if I had an US today and everything looked perfect, that's no guarentee that something terrible couldn't happen tomorrow.  Also, if something is wrong, I'll find out at some point.  I bought an ornament yesterday to commemorate this new baby; it's a tiny little bird.  I had the passing thought "this will be good to have when/if this baby doesn't make it".  Weird?  Or intuition?  I never ever worried about m/c with my DS.  This pregnancy is very different than my prev 2, which were both boys.  And, I had a very strong "girl" dream the other night!</p>

<p>I don't have a whole lot of symptoms. I'm tired a lot, but that's about it. Oh and I am really short tempered and irritable which isn't good since DH is deployed! The kids are getting on my nerves quicker than usual!</p>

<br><br><p>Okay, so I'm stalking my sister, but I'm probably going to end up stalking everyone else too...sorry!  I had terrible leg cramps during my pregnancy and this stuff made a HUGE difference: <a href="http://www.calmnatural.com/calm-plus-calcium-16oz" target="_blank">http://www.calmnatural.com/calm-plus-calcium-16oz</a>  (make sure you get the stuff with calcium and magnesium--one helps the other to absorb...can't remember which is which at this point).  I know it was this stuff because I stopped taking it for a couple of days and BOOM the leg cramps came back.  Went back on it, and they went away again. Hope that helps, they're pretty brutal (like major charley horses, sometimes waking me up from a sound sleep).</p>
