Hey SugarPie...what's the deal with you? Haven't seen anything from you in a few days...any news to share yet??? Let us know!

 

SugarPie - February 21

MandyD!! I have an appointment on Wednesday. Arg. Dreading it, but excited at the same time if that makes sense. I've been having nightmares for days. It all deals with BFP vs. BFN. I'm so embarra__sed to say that this has been haunting me even in my sleep. Things are going well, except my stomach is getting so full that I feel stretching and numbness if that makes sense? I've lost so much weight. I have no idea wtf is going on. I haven't changed my eating at all. I went back to my old calcium pills, because the new ones were actually making me bleed/spot if you can believe that. Let's see.. what else? nipples are getting weird in shape and b___sts feel like they're in a vice. Veins all over the place and even starting on the sides of my belly. My linea nigra is getting a bit darker. My eyes have finally stopped itching, but oddly enough I'm battling a sore throat that comes and goes. My nose is so dry inside that it feels like it's going to crack and well.. my eating habits are probably more than atrocious. Well, let me put it this way.. I have to let go of the chocolate and I can't. Every couple of days I'm finding myself eating a very tiny cookie, or a mini sized milky way. Did I mention that I hate chocolate and don't find it all appealing until this entire process began. I feel like a horrid parent (and i don't even know that I'm preggers yet!). Fiance just stares at me and says: "If you aren't pregnant, then your hormones must have a mind of their own". It really is astounding and miraculous at the same time. I'm going to request (if the doctor doesn't see anything on wednesday) that Prometrium (sp?). I think that I need to get myself back into balance (if indeed my hormones are off the wagon) and then try to jumpstart the pregnancy path. How are you doing? What's going on with you?!!!!

Hey...good to hear from you again...finally! That is so weird that you're losing weight, but your belly is getting rounder! I just feel like I'm getting bigger by the day! I am scheduled to take my last Prometrium tonight, and if it works right, then I should get my period within 2 weeks...yuck! I still have all the symptoms I've been having though, and still feel different, so I don't know! All my test results (from the bloodwork) came back normal, so I know if I don't get AF within that 2 weeks, my dr will be stumped!! Anyway, I'm doing fine other than waiting to see if AF is going to visit. If she does, guess I'll have to start playing the waiting game again. Oh well, such is life! Make sure you let me know what you find out at the dr! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you!!! I hope you're pg!!! Isn't it funny though how 'normal' it is for ppl to have a hormonal imbalance?! That just seems odd to me that it happens so often. Not to mention the bazillions of ppl who get neg test results when they are actually pregnant!!! I mean, in this day & age, with technology as it is, we can't come up with an inerrant test!? Give me a break!! Well, I hope things go well for you Wednesday, I'll be looking for your post!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!! XXX

MandyD! Girlfriend, I totally had to cancel my appointment and make one for the following Wednesday. I went away with my fiancee for Valentines Day and I swear I'm so forgetful these days.. I can't find my purse that has my insurance information!!!! We have two homes, with cars at each place, so I think the purse could be at my other home and in the other car. I have absolutely no idea. I'm so p__sed that I lost it!!!!! So, I'm panicking about that right now.. other than that, my b___sts hurt and of course the belly is still stretching. And believe it or not.. the more I eat the more weight I lose. I think I've lost almost 20 pounds and can I tell you that I'm eating cinnamon buns, brownies (in very small amonts) ice cream, ribs, baked potatoes, hoagies.. the list goes on and on. I'm sitting here hungry right now and have no food in my house, because I ate it all!!!! I'm breaking out like you wouldn't believe. I swear with being pregnant before, I had none of these symptoms! It is so amazing to me how different pregnancies can be. I was reading one thread and Grandpa Viv was saying how there was a time that doctors were so educated and experienced that they relied on their hands how the uterus felt to tell if a woman was preggers. Erm. not in this society and certainly not in the United States. I suppose that's why there's the help of midwives to continue that tradition. If only we had doctors who would just admit that they don't know what's wrong, but rea__sure you that they'll find out no matter what! Why can't they do that? Why do they have to put off their incompetence or risk their ego's being bruised and tell you that you're nuts? I'm so glad that you're doing well!! I'm surprised you didn't start bleeding already. Aren't you supposed to start bleeding like right after you finish the last pill or even during it? I remember from a miscarriage I had almost a year ago where they said that it would bring on the period immediately! Have you tried retesting this week? Wouldn't the progesterone up your hcg levels if you're preggers? I know i'm throwing out a lot of questions at you, but I keep thinking that you're preggers! My fingers are crossed and so hoping you're preggers. Can't wait to hear from you again!!

 

MandyD - February 22

Hey girl...that was a quick response! And I am totally with you on the forgetfulness & brain dysfunction! I feel like a total airhead lately, I don't know what's wrong with me. I mean, my brain is the one thing I was blessed with, and lately, I'm wondering if I lost it! Know what I mean?! I hope you find your insurance stuff...what do you do if you can't find it? Where is your other house at? Far from the one you're at now? I'm with you on the eating thing...I eat everything cuz I don't know what I want, but nothing sounds good to me. And right after I eat, I'm hungry again an hour later! It's crazy!! I'd be really surprised if you're not pg! Of course, that's what I thought about myself...I mean what else would explain why I haven't had a period in 3 months! When did you say your last one was? I was thinking it was around the same time as mine, but I can't remember. I'm not sure about the Prometrium...my dr told me that I should start within 2 weeks of taking the last pill (there were 12 pills). However, I've seen some posts where the women say that when taking Prom. they started like 4 or 5 days after they started taking them. So, I don't know. I haven't tested since the beginning of this month. I won't again unless I don't get my period within these 2 weeks. I would think that the progesterone would boost hcg, but I'm not a dr, so I can't say for sure. I still have tons of symptoms though, which is why I'm not 100% sure that I'm not pg. Included in my long list of symptoms are: duh, no AF (LOL), dizziness like crazy!, nausea - especially at night, extreme tiredness, eating more, veins around my b___sts, brighter yellow pee, hot flashes, b___st tenderness/soreness, achiness in my whole body - mainly legs, and DINGBATINESS!!! I feel like such a retard all the time now! So, you can see why I still am not convinced that I'm not pg. There's probably other symptoms I have that I just can't think of right now. I really hope we're both preggers!! That would be awesome! How long have you been ttc? It's been 7 months for us. We just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary on Jan 31st! When are you getting married? How long have you and your fiance been together? Sorry for all the personal questions! Just trying to get to know you, and not just your female issues! LOL! : ) Talk to ya soon! BABYDUST!! XX

Mandy. I totally know what you mean! I normally feel really sharp and alert and now I feel phased out. I just feel "dulled" even my body feels that way. That said, my houses are a couple hours apart and I know the purse isn't in the house. It has to be in the car. I'm so angry with myself for losing it!!! That said, I hear you about the food. I hate to admit this, but I I could eat an entire takeout order for a family of three. So freakin' hungry!! Anyway, I totally think you're preggers. Honestly, I think you would have been bleeding by now with the pills. I haven't had a period since November 28/29th. Hell, even with my other pregnancies I had flow. So unusual it's not funny. Anyway, I've been with (the man) for three years. It's actually been me who has held back a bit to get married and I keep blaming it on wanting to have "great" pictures.. but I think it comes down to wanting to make sure that I was okay and we were okay before making that choice. I know it's a bit outside of the norm and incredibly unacceptable to those who believe in a certain type of morality, but it has worked for me and for us. We ended up getting pregnant a year ago next Friday and it ended in miscarriage as did subsequent pregnancies so, technically we've been doing this for a year. Strange, huh? Must go eat. Keep me updated!!! So hoping you're preggers!!! Much love*****

 

MandyD - February 22

Well it sounds to me like you have too many houses, cars & purses! LOL!! : ) When are you going to get it? Before next Wednesday I know...this weekend? When's the last time you tested? Hey, you know, marriage is a choice...it's not a mandate that you have to follow. So, I say do what you think is best for you...who knows you better than you right?! It's a lot smarter to get things straight before you get married, then to rush into it and wind up with all sorts of problems and even divorce. I was with my husband for 3 years before we got engaged...nothing wrong with that! Just gotta make sure it's what you want. So have you set a wedding date yet? I am SOO sorry to hear about the miscarriages...I can't even imagine the pain! I will be praying that everything goes okay for you next time you are pregnant (maybe this time!!!!) and that you and baby are healthy! Thank you SOOOO much for the encouragement and kind words. I really hope I'm pg too, but we'll see. I'll know in 2 weeks or less I guess. I really hope you are too - you really deserve it!!! Let's keep each other updated. Like I said before, if you want to e-mail me, my e-mail address is [email protected] Lots of Love and Baby Dust coming your way!! *~*~*~*

U there SugarPie?

 

SugarPie - February 22

Hey!! I'm here. I was eating pizza that the man went out to get for dinner. Can I tell you how much I love food?? *smile*

 

MandyD - February 22

I am surprised it has taken you this long to respond to my last post...you're always right on top of it!! MMMM Pizza! I've been craving pizza a lot lately LOL! I'm with you...I LOVE FOOD!

 

SugarPie - February 22

Ahahahaha. I ate four slices. It's so sad. You know what's weird? Today I totally had a soury taste in my mouth. Like old milk. Arg. What time zone are you in??

 

MandyD - February 22

4 slices - that's nothing! I can eat that when I'm not pg! Not that I am now. : ) I've had a weird taste in my mouth off & on lately too, but not sour milk - eew! More like a metally taste. Did you see the last post - it was a long one, in response to your post about getting married. Oh, I live in NC (eastern)

 

SugarPie - February 22

Really? That's so cool. I'm from the South originally, but I live in New York these days. I totally did read what you wrote about marriage. I think I forgot to respond. Have you been experiencing a forgetfulness that mimics major loss of short term memory? I can't remember certain things like even names of stores that I will shop at. I can't even remember phone numbers. It's the strangest thing. Not to mention hot flashes in the middle of the night. I'll find myself waking up with sweat. It's horrid. Sorry to complain.. just sort of winding down and overly thinking.

 

MandyD - February 22

That's funny...I'm from New York originally, but I live here now. I totally have been so forgetful and just dumb lately. I mean, it's bad. I say stuff backwards all the time, I forget what I was saying right in the middle of saying it...I mean it's bad. My husband thinks I've lost it sometimes, but he usually just laughs at me. And I have hot flashes all day long, not just at night. I'm hot & cold, hot & cold, hot & cold. And usually when I wake up in the morning, I'm dripping! Hey, that's what we're here for right? To complain to each other and get stuff off our (swollen) chests! : )

 

La Rae to Sugarpie - February 22

Man! Our symptoms sound so similiar in a lot of ways. When I was at the E/R yesterday (because of my ma__sive, disgusting boil outbreak) they weighed me, and I discovered that within the last 2 and a half weeks I have lost 8 pounds without even trying! And I mean that! I am definitely eating more. Within the last two weeks I have eaten Chinese food over ten times (lost count). Normally I eat Chinese food about once a year (no lie). I am craving Coca Cola now and I always drink tea! Not anymore - not right now anyways.... My tummy looks SO bloated right now, but the rest of me looks skinny. I don't know what the hell is going on with me - but I do know that SOMETHING is. I do know that my bladder infection (which, btw...I have not had one of those in over 11 years) and my boil outbreak CAN be related to pregnancy. I read that you have a boil outbreak on your face. Is that something that's happened to you before? Or is it a new experience for you? Until almost two weeks ago, I hadn't gotten a boil in over two years (and even when I did it was only ONE). This time, I broke out with 7 of 'em! Damn, did they and do they hurt! I decided that if the nipple thing is still going on for me by this weekend, that I am testing again. I wish you luck with your ttc, Sugarpie. Thanks for all your advice and help on my other post(s). God Bless and Baby Dust to you. Oh....and what's up, MandyD? How are you doing? Good, I hope.....

 

SugarPie - February 23

Oh, holy hell. I fell asleep on the floor!! I can't belive I pa__sed out. And woke up not even fifteen minutes ago. I'm so sorry, Mandy. Arg. I can't make it past 9:00-9:30. Are you having the same thing? I've been able to not nap during the day (though it's hard).. but c___p!! *the man* is crashing at this time these days as well.. and i'm dreaming about cats. I don't understand why. I just had my third dream about freakin' cats. That said, tell me how you're feeling this morning. Were you able to rest?!

 

SugarPie - February 23

LaRae: I had to wait for fiancee to go to work so I could write what I'm about to say. Girl, I hear you on the Chinese food. I just didn't even count. I ate it at least twice a day for the past six weeks. He'd kill me if he knew how much I've spent on it. It's abnormal and just isn't right!!!!! The Chinese feels so good going down my throat. It is almost as good as s_x. How far along are you?! Have you been like Mandy and myself waiting since November? I was wondering because even know I know my last period happened in November... I keep trying to think about when I got pregnant. I keep thinking it had to have been Christmas, but I really don't know. That said I'm wondering if our bleeding happened around the same time. In any event, my boils started a little over a week ago. I have it on my chin, forehead and nose. I have a horrific case of eczema on the inside of my thighs, my neck (which has gone down and almost disappeared significantly) and on my right shoulder blade. I read that people who have eczema as children tend to get it during their pregnancy because of the increase blood flow, but I know that the eczema is related to the liver and I have liver deficiencies which I always wondered if that's the cause for my not knowing for a good while about my pregnancies (i.e.: not coming up on a stick). This is the first pregnancy where I've ever had boils. They hurt and they aren't full of anything, which is weird. It's like a hard lump, but it burns like hell when it's forced open (which I admittedly have done). And I hear you on the Coke. G-d... I feel so bad to say that I've been drinking decaf Coke. I know it is bad. I'm trying to stop, but it's the same thing with the little bit of chocolate. I can't for some reason. I really am trying. I read that the weightloss comes from the pregnancy hormones which basically eats up fat and extra water weight. Interesting huh? I've been reading online about women who have lost weight during their pregnancy and all of them have been "over weight". So it is most interesting. I wonder if this could make a great weightloss drug.. the hcg hormone would basically eat up people's fat. Or is it the progesterone with overweight women? It's a bit scary though as it happens, because everything is getting really skinny but my belly.. but I can even see my b___sts are starting to get stretch marky and the skin surrounding my hips and so forth. So strange. I honestly wish there was a doctor who could explain it. One other thing.. are any of you getting dandruff? I've never had dandruff in my life, but i'm noticing like if I scratch my head that there's a fine dusting that occurs. I don't have enough that would be seen on my clothes or anything, but it's like if I'm holding my head in my hands and scratching.. I'll see a dust. That too has baffled me. One other thing about the bleeding, I bled the weekend before last and went to the hospital out of fear.. the 28th would be three months of this pregnancy.. I was reading on this board forum in the search engine that a lot of women have bled on their 7 and 10-12 week for some reason. It was kind of like a period and it just happened for no reason. Completely out of the blue. I ended up going further with the bleeding and read on Dr. Spock's message board that there's a sac full of blood below the opening of the cervix and that it's collected there from the last pregnancy and that during the first trimester it will burst and that's where the blood flow comes from. The lady who said this was a midwife. So who knows.. let me know your thoughts y'all. Much luvz**** There's absolutely no way you two can't be pregnant. No conceivable way in my mind. Something is up and it sure as hell isn't in your mind!!! Baby Dust ladies!!!******
