Just wondering what symptoms, if any, you all are having so far. I have breast swelling and tenderness, a little more sensitive smell, some loss of appetite, and the worst one is achiness all in my pubic bone area. A couple of tiny round ligament pains, too, but not much.<br><br>
I'm praying to the porcelain gods that I don't have as much morning sickness as with my first pregnancy!<br><br>

Hmmm, at 5w2d I have the following symptoms:<br>
~ sore nipples<br>
~ mild heartburn and burping<br>
~ fatigue<br>
~ major loss of appetite<br>
~ some bloating<br><br>
So far, it's not too bad. Like EllasMama, I'm praying to each and every power that may be that I don't get the ghastly 4 months of m/s that I got with my dd.

Boobiemamma - That sounds like pregnancy to me!! It's just so unfair that the first pregnancy symptoms mimic your period, isn't it??<br><br>
My symptoms -<br><br>
Bloating (I had to move up to my fat shorts already!)<br>
Sore breasts (but this comes and goes)<br>
Cramping<br>
Round Ligament pain (Can that really happen this early? Mostly this happens at night when I turn over or during the day when I stand up too fast.)<br>
TIRED!!!!! (I usually stay up until 12 or 1 am and I've been in bed by 8:30 for a week!!)<br>
Gagging at certain smells (tomato sauce, ricotta cheese, garlic - and I LOVE garlic!)<br><br>

I'm so relieved to hear about other people cramping. I had some last night and was really worried. I also need a chiropractic adjustment already - just like last pregnancy I've developed sciatic pain, and that's tying in with the cramps.<br><br>
I am so exhausted!<br><br>

i know what you mean! i always like it when other people have the same symptoms - makes me feel normal and like everything is okay! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> i had sciatic problems early on with my first, too - and it continued throughout most of my pregnancy, although the chiropractor was a life saver!! i just remember being so surprised that i was having back problems when i was only like 6 weeks pg. how tall are you?? i am only 5 ft and always thought maybe that had something to do with it... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

Cramping and exhaustion. But being tired could be because I have a toddler too. LOL

I had cramps starting at 4 dpo, that continued till 10 days. The 10th day was pretty bad, lots of cramps, then it was less on 11dpo, and I am now 14 dpo and not cramping. Makes me feel so much better. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Tia, I am 5'3". My pregnancy sciatica relates to a recurring back problem that I have, but only when pregnant does it cause sciatic pain, other times it just causes back ache until I can get adjusted. I started exercising regularly in January and have only needed 1 adjustment since then, so I am bummed that I already need to go. But oh well, I don't want to wait till it gets to the point where I wake up in bed and can't move my leg like last time!<br><br>

I'm 5'3" and until my uterus pops out of my pelvis I have horrible sciatic pain. When I was pg with #2 I remember being about 6-7 weeks and at the grocery store with #1, I was checking out when all of a sudden I couldn't move my left leg at all. I sort of wabbled out of the store using the cart to move me out :LOL . I haven't had it too bad yet with this pg but I have had hints of it so I know it will happen soon.<br><br>

Hmm. This morning I felt fairly nauseous. I slept later than usual and have have terrible postnasal drip, so both those factors probably contributed. It was totally manageable, but I don't like the feeling that it might get worse.<br><br>
I'm also not into sweets at all right at the moment (even chocolate doesn't sound good which is just crazy!). I crave savory things instead, especially cheese and crackers.<br><br>

My moods are really swinging (even more erratic than usual, LOL!). The other day I got so mad I threw a book at my DH - and was mad at myself that I missed! Today I've felt on the verge of sobbing the whole day. My DH has decided not to shave for several days in a row so I keep glaring at him.<br><br>
I also need a daily nap, have been soooo hungry and thirsty, and have eaten beef at one meal for the last 3 days (usually only have it a couple times a month but have been craving it). My breasts are also a lot larger! Unfortunately, so is my gut, despite the fact that the baby is still down behind my pubic bone. :LOL<br><br>

I agree about the thirst. I drank 300% more water today than normal (which isn't usually much <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
And yes, MEAT! I've had a HUGE burger, and I've been wanting smoked sausage all week. Were having it for dinner tomorrow!<br>
If I don't get a nap or if DS takes a later nap, I get very cranky!

I wanted a hamburger. I'm a vegatarian. The only time I've ever wanted a hamburger in my life was during my first pregnancy <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

How funny--I'm about 5 wks and I made burgers last night. I haven't made them in years! Ground beef completely grosses me out, but yesterday, oooh!<br>
Only other symptom was crampiness, which has gone away.

I a little over 5 weeks, and I am SO TIRED! Of course I do have a 3 year old so I'm sure that's part of my fatigue problem. :LOL I also have extremely sore and enlarged breasts, small bouts of nausea, I'm craving red meat, VERY bloated, and thirsty all the time.
