I beieve at this point I am around 8.5 weeks (I go for an ultrasound on Tuesday the 7th of June). I am wondering how other people feel? I am very tired, starving all the time, somewhat nauseated (but no puking) and BBs hurt (worse at different times of the day).

2 weeks ago I went for an ultrasound cause I thought I had a tubal pregnancy. I was cramping with some discharge. I thought I was only 5 weeks. The u/s showed 8 weeks and I saw the baby's heartbeat!. the blood screen says my HCG levels showed 7 weeks...so, who knows?I'm tired too, had some nausea a week ago, but now am better.(no puking) Pre natals were making me sick, so now I take them at bedtime. Seemed to help. Hang in there, it seems everything changes from one thing to another so quickly...

sounds just about right. i am 9 weeks as of yesterday and the nausea has pretty much eased up, b___bs not as sore, but they have their moments, and im always hungry. Good luck!

Did anyone start to feel like their symtoms would come and go each day. I seem to have one good day then one bad day and so on... this is my first baby (not first pregnancy) and I am also curious if anyone out there has had their stomach pooch out a bit by 8 weeks or so? I am normally a thin person and it seems that within the last week my stomach pooched...??

I am 10w2d and my belly started really to change at 8 weeks. My morning sickness has gotten better but also comes and goes. Some days are bad, some days are good.

Am 9 weeks and my morning sickness also comes and goes. Stomach seems hard and bloated most of the times, except when I wake up in the morning. There are days when nausea lasts the whole days. Have been puking too. Tiredness and hunger part of the daily routine too!

I am 8.5 weeks too, due Jan. 8th. I go in for a u/s this afternoon. Am very anxious. Yes, am extremely tired, eat like a pig for no reason, am occasionally nauseated (but no throwing up), and b___sts get tingly and seem to be somewhat larger. I do have achiness and "pressure" in my very lower abdomen. Sometimes bothers me, but I hope okay. I will let you know what I find out today. I should be able to see it and hear the heartbeat right?

Jessica - please write back after your ultrasound because I have one on Monday AM and I have read so many up and down stories about getting heartbeats and not. Good Luck and think happy thoughts!

Thank you Marcie. It has been hard reading the up and down situations. I am a bit nervous. I will definately be sure to let you know how it goes. Be sure to check the site. When are you due? Sounds like we are about the same.

Jessica, I am due around Jan 10th...

 

Jessica - June 2

Hi Marcie, Well, it is 2:30 now (I'm in Wichita, KS). My sono is at 3:15. If I don't post back, be sure to check tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes. Was your dr. okay about doing the early sono. this Monday?

jessica - I had been spotting in the beginning and I am 36 so they wanted me in there at 5 weeks to make sure I didnt have an ecptopic pregnancy - all spotting has stoped and they still wanted me to come back in for another U/S because this OB office will not recognize your pregnancy until they get a heartbeat. I am switching OBs after the Monday appoinment because they are far away and I did not like the way they were treating me. I could opt to wait until I am 12 weeks but now I am so curious as to what is going on in there. Even though I know there is always a possibility that (due to a bad machine or bad technician) I may still not get to hear a heart beat on Monday. But I will not give up then, I will still think positive thoughts until I go at 12 weeks to the new OB.

P.S. I cant wait to hear your news tomorrow!

Hi Marcy! I'm back. Can you see the smile on my face? The u/s went so well. We were able to do both the regular and v____al. With the v____al everything was much more pronounced and you could see much clearer. The baby is wonderful. It's amazing that although still early, the baby is still a little person. We were able to see the little face and discern the eyes. She showed us the brain. You can see the arms and legs, and what was amazing was the little heart. You can actually see the little thing moving so quickly. We were also able to hear the heartbeat through the u/s. Please put yourself at ease. I know you too will have a wonderful experience on Monday. They put my due date (per the baby's size) at Jan. 8-9, so we are right about the same. Please let me know how yours goes as well. I hope this makes you feel better. I am estatic right now!

I just completely read all of what you had written. Sorry, missed seeing it. I got to excited in writing to you back. Where about's are you? I am 27. Sounds like switching OB's may be a good idea. You absolutely want to go somewhere that you are comfortable and feel that you are being well taken care of. I really think things are okay with you however. I have been told more than once that spotting is completely normal in the beginning. Has it somewhat subsided? I too thought that I could possibly be having an eptopic pregnancy due to the "pains" I was having. I had been to the dr. twice in the last week or two, and she could never get the heartbeat. I was scared, but my dr. rea__sured me that it's very normal as well. I too, could have waiting until 12 weeks, but simply was having to much stress and aprehension, much like you say you're having. I will pray for you Marcy. I really do think in my heart that everything is okay. I really didn't think I was going to see anything when I went in today and was preparing myself for the worse. I think as "mothers", it's our protective nature and intuition to want to make sure everything is perfect. Keep that in mind. You are being a wonderful mother right now by being so concerned for your baby. I know it will be great. Will you please let me know! In the meantime while you're waiting until Monday, take warm baths, listen to some relaxing evening, rest, put your feet up, and just take care of yourself okay. God controls all things okay. Trust that!!

Okay, what kind of ding-bat am I. I put your name as the sender. Sorry from Jessica. Didn't mean to put Marcy.

 

Marcy - June 2

Thank you Jessica for all of your kind words, it brought tears to my eyes. I am desparate to know that everything is alright so it was great to read what you just wrote. I live in Providence RI, a long ways from you. I promise that the second I get back from my Monday appointment I will post to you (my appointment is in the afternoon). Thank you again and I am so happy for you!!!!!!
