tndrlvn - April 12

Hello Ladies, just wanted to drop by and let you all in on the symptoms and what not i have been having.... everything is going great...started morning sickness this week.... but i realized it only happened after i took my prenatals....then realized i was supposed to eat when i take them .....duh... blonde moment. hehehe so as of tomorrow i am going to start eating when i take them and see how all works out..... counting down the days to see baby in US. I have my first appointment with Dr. in a week...very excited to see how all is going. I have very very tender br___ts...hubby can't even touch me right now. tomorrow i am 7 weeks!!!!!!! I have been getting chest pains, like under the br___ts, I'm sure it is all due to the ducts growing. Also i have been having a lot of flutters in my right side, just above the rib cage.... has anyone else had this???? i'm sure it is all normal...not letting myself stress over it. Just enjoying the pregnancy... Let me know how all is going for you....take care!!!!

Hellllo tndrlvn = ) I am 7w5d (time FLIES by when you count life like this!!!) and I started morning sickness last monday. I was insanely close to being sick and every day last week I was incredibly nauseous! Ended up coming down with the stomach flu on Sunday night, but I'm finally past that and all of my symptoms have made a comeback-or, they were just there and I was too busy to notice because I was so sick! My dh laughs at me because I always say, "Whose ready for a nap?" and I raise my hand. My bbs are a bit tender, my lower abdomen is getting harder (take THAT abs of steel) and I felt that same exact flutter (!) you had on my lower left side yesterday in the car. What an intense feeling! I was doing the lightest spotting for a couple days this past week-but I knew I was sick (and I did have s_x...) and it has gone away. I go for my first u/s on the 21rst and I'm incredibly nervous but excited all in the same. I would LOVE to wait and share experiences with you!!! Good luck = ) P.S. My prenatals COULD be the culprit of things making me queasy-but there is no denying my love for outrageous foods I've never eaten and smells I can't stand!

Hi everyone. I'm 7w3d with my first, and started my m/s this week. Actually, it's really kind of all day sickness. I haven't actually thrown up, but the nausea is constant. I have to take my little package of crackers with me everywhere I go! VERY sore b___sts (and HUGE - for me!) and I'm totally exhausted. Mild cramps, but they seem to be better this week than last. I have my first doctor's appointment on Monday afternoon, so hopefully I'll know more then! I'm so excited, but terrified at the same time. I can't wait until the first u/s! Congrats and take care!

Hello I am 7wks today!!! and m/s started a few days ago. I have been exhausted since 5wks. And starting yesterday very dizzy. My first Dr. appt is tommorow!!! yeah I am excited and nervous. I am not sure what to expect but hope I will learn that everything is progressing well. BB's tender but I wouldnt say sore/hurt I expected to be in major pain or something.

Good Mornin Ladies....CONGRATS TO ALL OF YOU!!!!...Linds.you are halarious...i could always go for a nap...the light spotting, I am so glad you mentioned that because last night when i went tinkle and wiped i saw light red...was a little nervouse because i have had a bit of a stressful week, all is well now, and this am...was not so red but a tint of light brown...so that makes me feel better i'm not the only one. I was planning on coming on here this am to ask about it. DH wanted a little loving last night but I was to afraid...and I am usually the one that wants it... he was quiet shoked, but understood. You have eased my mind thank you.. I haven't had the bad smells yet.. but sure like watermelon. .you will have to let me know all is goin...Srigles...definitly let me know how the appointment goes. DEE....Good luck in Dr. appt. tomorrow here is a web site that will help you with what to expect on your first visit......good to know cause i'd make sure i had a shower first.....hehehe.. http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/pregnancycalendar/l/blweek8.htm Let me know how it goes.....

Hey ladies! I am 7 wks today! How exciting. :) TNDRLVN- I know what you mean about watermelon!! I can't get enough of it. But, it makes me pee a LOT!! I have had m/s (all day sickness) this entire time. From about 5wks on. I don't know why it started so early - but I think it may have to do w/ my hCG levels - they are VERY high. The higher they get, the sicker you will feel. My b___sts just started to get tender last week sometime. I was concerned at first but now I wonder why I was waiting for it. ;) Unfortunately, DH and I have been instructed no s_x at least until my next appt. on 4/26. I have had 2 u/s so far - dr. is being VERY cautious - and I have already seen the h/b. Loved it!! How neat to have so many ladies as far along as me! DEE- you and I are right on schedule together!! SRIGLES- My cramping has started to fade away this week as well. I have been trying to find answers as to when it should stop. Hopefully soon. I has a missed m/c in Dec '05 so any signs like that scare me to tears.

 

tndrlvn - April 13

Mornin back again. my ride for work showed up so I had to close early...hehehe..d__n sister she was supposed to call so I wasn't expecting her....good thing we work together I can beet her up later. hahahah....anyhow, i know how you feel about being scared Jen... I m/c last Aug. DH and i have been triing for 2 years now. I was married before this relationship to a man that couldn't have kids so for 7 years i was in major depression at certain times in the year. not always, becuase I did have knowledge of this and accepted it when we got married...but the clock still gives you that feeling of wanting no matter what......so anyhow when i was having the light tint of red last night i was getting pretty scared. so i just laid down and didn't move...So I was wondering where you ladies are from? I am from British Columbia Canada.....anyhow i better get to work before i get fired...........i just put tired,,,,,,I could go for a nap already.......hehehehehe

 

tndrlvn - April 13

sorry i just about put tired........not did.....i call this my baby brain.....instead of blonde moment........i love excuses hehehehe

 

srigles - April 13

tndrlvn/Jennifer28 - Sorry to hear about your m/c's. That scares me so much! Because I've never been pg before, I don't know what's "normal" and what's not, so my mind goes a millions miles an hour every time I get a strange twinge. I can't wait until I have an appointment for the u/s, so at least then I'll know that everything's progressing the way it should! My husband is convinced we're having twins. (Not because of how I'm feeling, but because we both have multiple sets in our families). He nearly keeled over when I told him I was pg; he'd probably have to be hospitalized if it turned out to be twins! We've been TTC for about a year and a half now, so we're both really excited. Every time I feel sick or something, he gets this little smile on his face, like "oh this is so cool, she's preggers" and I just want to kick him, because at least HE isn't living off crackers and gingerale and barely managing to keep his eyes open... Oh, and I'm from Ontario, Canada, by the way.... take care, everyone!

 

tndrlvn - April 13

lol i hear you srigles, my dh looks at me when i have the morning sickness and giggles and says "heheheh look what i did to you" the bugger........sooooooo.........i call him into the bathroom and say "heheheh see what i do to you"" as i tell him to hold my hair as i have the sickness...........I said if you want in this together we will be together all the way.........hahahahaha. pay backs are a b___h hehe

 

srigles - April 13

tndrlvn; That's hilarious, I might have to try that....

 

Dee - April 13

tndrivn I tried to check out the website you listed but didnt have any luck finding it. Oh well. Sorry to hear you and Jennifer are actually getting sick. I have m/s where I throw up in my mouth a little but thats it no actually trips to the bathroom. But it has been happening many times throughout the day and I feel gross. I am from Michigan.

 

Jennifer28 - April 13

Hey girls. I haven't actually thrown up - thank God!! But, sometimes I feel like I will. My stomach is always upset - esp. after I eat. Sometimes I can't think of anything that sounds good to eat b/c my stomach hurts so badly. Right now I am munching on a couple of pretzel sticks. I hate forcing myself to eat but I know it is the only thing that will settle my tummy. BTW- I am from St. Louis, MO!

 

stacie23 - April 13

kviola - April 13

Hey- I am 7 weeks and 3 days. Had an u/s today-saw the fetal pole, heartbeat, etc. Everything looks healthy. This is my first pregnancy at 36 yrs old. I am nervous about every little thing. My bbs are killing me and I posted a question about the yolk sac. I have not had the fluttering but I would not worry. Keep in touch. Kate

 

Dee - April 14

I had my first dr appt. today. I am 7 12 weeks. I was a bit disappointed in the first visit. They just asked alot of questions and drew blood. Dr. said he'll go over the blood test results with me in 5 wks which is when my next appt is. (unless ofcourse there is a problem then he'll call) No u/s nothing. kviola your lucky you got to have a u/s. I feel like if I had an u/s it would make it more real.

 

LindsJ2277 - April 15

Hey tendrlvn = ) Sorry I've been away for a couple days! I was so happy to read what you had written the past couple of times though! I think when other people go through it, somehow the "bad" things...don't seem that "bad." I haven't had s_x because I'm a little scared of spotting again-so I plan to ask my dr. on Friday about it and see what she has to say! I am from allllll the way across the ocean-Ma__sachusetts. About an hour outside of Boston! The bad smells continue, the cravings continue-I've been nauseous and m/s free for 2 days! Woohoo! But, whose to say it won't start again? I've been taking my prenatals at night. Maybe this is helping? bb's are still a little sore-particularly the nipple-dh is constantly laughing at me because they "stick out" now. Haha. The incessant crying has ceased-but I am still tired...so, when is your appointment? Nervous? Excited? Both?!?! I hope things are well!!!
