Week 8 was rough due to heavy nausea and tiredness. Hopefully week 9 will be better. How are you feeling?

Oh!! I'm extremely tired and had a horrible bout of nausea yesterday!! I was hoping that all of this would be tapering off since the placenta should be taking over as of now!! But I still feel quite miserable!

How far along are you Leahp?

 

Leahp - February 15

Nine weeks as of today!

 

Rachel* - February 15

Me too! Is your due date Sept. 27? That's what mine is. I thought the placenta takes over around week 12. If it is sooner that would be great!!

hi girls!!! i am 9 weeks also, and i was miserable from week 5 until the end of week 8. Tiredness completely took me over from week 5 and i was sleeping all hours of the day. When week 6 kicked in, i was completely nausiated and sick. i barley moved off the sofa each day. Thankfully, for the last 4 days i've been eating well and the sickness has pa__sed so other than tiredness things have greatly improved!!

Fi, I wish I could just sleep some days. I work full-time, so I have little rest through the week. Luckily I get to put my feet up at my desk. I hope my nausea goes away soon ;)

Hiyee!!! into my 10th week and feeling crampy... I think I gotta get more rest and do less housework.

Hi Rachel, My due date is Sept. 21st at least that's what the online calculators say! I was feeling better last night and went for an hour power walk with some friends, which made a world of difference!! But I sense that it's not ove yet! You are probably right about the placenta, that's what I read as well, but I always get conflicting info. Because a web site said at nine weeks it maybe, begins to take over!! Were almost in the clear. Have you gone shopping yet? I'm waiting till I'm out of the woods with the whole miscarriage deal, at least we're down to a 5% chance now!! I was freaking out about that for weeks! I'm so use to being in control of my own body!

Leahp, if your due date is 9/21 then I think you are 10 weeks. Have you seen a doctor yet? I have done some shopping already. I bought a ba__sinet and some really cute clothes that would be good for a boy or a girl. A couple blankets, some booties, and some adorable bibs. I never pay full price because I always shop the sales, so I've just been keeping an eye out. Whenever I stop just to "look" I seem to find something so adorable that I just have to buy it. It's fun too. I try not to think about m/c too much. I know it's a possibility, but I don't want to dwell on it.

Yea, I did go to the doctor, but was upset with the visit, all they did was a pap and pelvic exam and said at 12 weeks is when they'll do blood work and heart beat. But they rushed me out with a book and that's what the book said due to the date of my last period, Dec. 14th. Sounds like you have gotten some adorable stuff!!!

hello, Ladies. I am about 9 weeks myself. My U/S showed I was due Sept.22, and that the baby was sized at 7weeks, 5 days, and that was on feb 7th. It's really hard for me to determine exactly how far along I am, because my last m/p was nov.21, but I am completelt irregular, so it means nothing. This is also my 6th pregnancy, with only 1 child to show for it so far. I am hoping 6th times' the charm! My husband and I are are cautiously optimistic, since I am so SICK!!!!! If it's not nausea, it's heartburn!!! hee hee! I had an ultrasound only because I am a high risk pegnancy, otherwise, it wouldn't have been until week 20 or so as well. Canadian medicare, I guess. But, I got to see my little lima-bean with a beautiful flutter in the center, so all seems to be well so far. I have even ventured, secretly into picking names!!!

Lovely, sorry to hear of your previous losses. I hope this one sticks!! I just found out that I have a bladder infection, so I am taking antibiotics. I hate taking them because they usually make me sleepy. I am already really sleepy all day, so I hope the medicine doesn't make it worse.

Hiya all! Im not doing too badly. Not sick but feel nauseous. I feel youcky about everything...I don't fancy doing anything coz the feeling of sick puts me off. Leahp, I think your in your 10th week as Im in my 9th and my last m/p was 21st dec. My due date is 27th Sept. Rachel*, I hate urine infections. I saw my m/wife today and I had to take in a sample and it was a strane colour. She wondered if I may have an infection too although I have no symptoms of one. Ive bought some stuff too...A little outfit , suitable for either m/f, nappies, dummies, etc. I love looking for stuff. Only 19 days til my scan...Im really excited!

Howdy everyone!!! Felt lousy last night, had a terrible headache and heartburn!!! Have been feeling light headed lately... Oh seems like we are all due almost the same time, my EDD is 9/10. I can't wait for month end to come, that means 1st Tri ending soon... certainly looking forward to 2nd Tri!!! But I gotta wait till 3/15 for my next scan, really excited cos by then gynae will let me listen to bb's heartbeat!!!

Rachel*, sorry to hear abt your bladder infections, I had UTI abt 5 yrs back and gosh! It was such an agony!!! I promised myself not to have it again. Try upping your water intake, cranberry juice helps too. I read from some webby that leaning forward when u visit the toilet will help u clear all the urine.
