Hey sam! Sorry I haven't been on in a few days, my off days keep me pretty busy running after Tiarnan and doing housework. Hope you are feeling well. I have been on and off tired, just trying to lay down when I can. I would take naps with Tiarnan but he has decided the last 2 days not to take a nap. I haven't had any crazy cravings yet, but my sweet tooth is getting the better of me. I made some peanut butter bars that are topped with chocolate, they turned out really good and I ate 1/4 of the pan last night. I've also had a little bit of cramping but it's not accompianied by any bleeding so it's more annoying than anything,
So how have you been feeling? Anything unusual going on with you, crazy cravings or the like. I hope things are going well and you are staying relaxed. Chat with you soon!
Hey mama! It is cool, I have been very busy as well at work. I am glad to hear you are doing well and feeling well. I have been pretty good too. I do get crazy waves of tiredness come over me at work, which stinks. BUT, I will take that over morning sickness which I have been lucky enough so far not to have to deal with. My chest seems to be getting more sore each day, but the gas has gone away as well. I guess with each symptom leaving a new one comes ( : Thankfully, nothing to complain about...just very excited, still can't believe it. I think it will hit me when I start showing.
I did go last Saturday and get my seasonal flu shot for the first time in my life as my ob/gyn suggested I do so. They said upon my visit on the 5th of November they would discuss the swine flu shot with me, although I still don't know how I feel about that yet.
Are you less nervous with this pregnancy since it is your second? I feel like with every little feeling I jump on google to make sure it is "normal". I just wonder if that is a first time Mommy thing, or if it continues with future pregnancies.
Well, I am off to relax...thankfully I have off tomorrow so I can catch up on some much needed sleep ( : Have a great night and I will chat with you soon!
sam-- I wasn't very nervous with my first and I am not all that nervous with this one either. I guess I just don't worry about it too much, I just go with the flow and try not to worry, otherwise it will drive you insane. I went to the mall today and when I walked into the food court the plethora of smells about knocked me over. Thankfully the wave of nausousness was short lived. I am at work now, it's been a bit busy and we only have 2 people on so it seems even crazier. The bad part is I have to pee! It's hard to get up to go to the bathroom because the phone won't stop ringing and I know I shouldn't hold it but oh man! Hopefully soon enough it will slow down so I can go potty.
I'm glad your gas is gone, mine is still here. The problem with mine is that they have changed from noisy to smelly. I would rather them be noisy but you live with what you get. Back to work I go. Chat later.
I am glad to hear that you don't worry, I am working on that myself. I can understand how you feel with the nausea as when I woke up I thought for sure I was going to be sick but I quickly ate some crackers and thankfully the feeling subsided. That stinks about your work situation, thankfully I am able to get up and go potty as often as I need which is good considering how much more water I am drinking, I do go often.
I am sorry to hear about the gas still being around. That must be annoying for you. I am trying to talk my manager into letting me have a pillow at my desk for when I need to nap ( : Anyways, it is my day off so I have lots to get done so I will chat with you later. Have a great day!
sam-- My work situation really isn't that bad. I am a police dispatcher and we normally have 4 on for most of my shift and definitely almost always 3. Yesterday though we had 2 people call off so that is why we only had the 2 of us and it was hard to get up. That doesn't happen all that often, but then again you never know when it will be busy in here either.
Good job with the crackers to fight off nausea. My mom said she had to do that with me, she would just set them out before bed and eat some as soon as she woke up but before she got out of bed. I just had that one wave at the food mall and I didn't have any with my first, so I am soooooooooo keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get it with this one either.
I think a big part of the reason that I didn't worry with my first is because of the lack of symptoms. I also feel that is playing a big role this time around as well. My mindset is that what is going to happen will happen and stressing out will only make thinkgs worse. Try to keep in mind that everything will be fine and go about your day, it might help keep the worries at bay.
That is a very nice manager if he/she lets you have a pillow at your desk. Good luck with the convincing. Have a great night and a good day at work tomorrow. Chat with you later.
That must be an interesting job. I do not know if I could handle the crazy calls that I am sure you get so often. I work as an internet sales manager for a local dealership so I have plenty of people around so I am clear to always run to the potty.
I have not discussed the pillow yet ( : But my manager is my father in law so that might help with the situation!!
I am feeling much better today and have not felt sick since my last episode. BUT...I am noticing what I assume to be bloating in my belly. I can not wear certain shirts as they make me look pregnant. I know the baby is still very tiny so I assume it to be just bloating but the weird thing is that it does not come and go, nor does it get worse at night like they say should happen for bloating.
It is making me think maybe I am having twins!! My grandmother was a fraternal twin so we have the possibility of having twins. I am also pretty small to begin with so I assumed I would show earlier BUT not at just past 6 weeks!
It is all so exciting and crazy to see the changes taking place, I guess since it is my first everything seems different and new. Well, off to work for me but I hope you enjoy your day and I will chat with you soon.
Hi ladies. I'm due in June as well. I originally thought I was due at the end of May, and had my first sonogram at what we thought would be 7.5 weeks, but it showed that I must have ovulated late (which is very likely because I ovulate at complete random or not at all) so it's now June. My husband and I were having trouble getting pregnant. I had some surgery to remove a huge cyst, and then a few weeks later, BOOM we were pregnant without even trying. We're lucky that my husband had a birthday, otherwise we wouldn't have done it because I was still not feeling 100% after the surgery. We found out when I had to take a blood pregnancy test before starting Provera to get a period so I could begin clomid and either IUI or IVF because doctors said it wouldn't happen naturally. We showed them! I have my next appt. Nov. 4 and I'm very nervous because I don't have many symptoms, and that makes me think something is wrong. At my first sonogram they saw the heartbeat at 5.5 weeks, but I still can't believe that there can possibly be anything in there. My boobs are crazy veiny and I'm very bloated which makes me look like I have a pregnant belly all the time, when I know it's just bloatedness. I know it sounds crazy, but I wish I felt a little sick for some proof! I don't think I will relax until my next appt. when they can hear the heartbeat. I have no cramping or bleeding, I'm just terrified of having a miscarriage.
Julie--CONGRATULATIONS! That is crazy how it happens when you least expect it, isn't it? Try not to worry too much about not having sickness or other symptoms, consider yourself lucky. I know I did with my first and so far with this one as well. Around 24% of women don't get any morning sickness at all and I am delighted with the fact that I am probably one of them. So, when in June are you due? Both Sam and I are due towards the middle, wouldn't that be exciting if we were all due around the same time. Again, congratulations and welcome to the June boards. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and nothing is TMI when your PG.
Sam-- I do get some really crazy calls but the training is pretty intense before they let you out on your own. Also, I am never working alone so if I don't know how to handle something exactly I can always ask my coworkers. I have noticed bloating too, especially on the bottom part of my belly. With my first I started showing around 8 weeks, I was only 106lbs so it was obvious when my belly started pushing out. If you are still trying to conceal it, I suggest wearing loose fitting tshirts when you can. That would be exciting if you are having twins, I fantasize about having twins sometimes, so if you are I will live vicariously through you.
Not much for me, things aren't smelling very good for me but I am not getting sick. My breasts are starting to get more and more uncomfortable and I think they might even be getting bigger(which the hubs likes). Just a little over a week until my first appointment and I get more excited each day. Well, I should probably get dinner started before I head into work so I will chat with you ladies later.
Julie- CONGRAT'S!!!! I am glad to hear your surgery went well and you were able to get preggo so fast. Sometimes things just happen when you least expect it. I am not having any morning sickness either, just a bit tired and my chest is very swollen and sore so I would not worry much about your symptoms. Like hardworkingmama said, many women do not even feel anything this early.
Mama-I am glad to hear they do training for you guys and you have others around when thinks get difficult...still don't think I would be good for the job because I am too nervous with that kind of stuff ( : I am totally with you with the chest issue, mine keeps getting worse! Not sure how I feel about twins...I guess it would be a double blessing, just makes me worry about how we would handle two newborns at the same time.
As for me, I had a conversation with my boss (also my father in law) and he said I can change my schedule so no more 12 hours day, YIPEE! So now it is just 9 to 5 each day which makes me very happy and will allow me to get more rest and things done around the house. Hubby is happy as well because he believes he will get more home cooked dinners out of the deal ( : Well, it is off to bed for me. I hope you ladies have a wonderful evening and I will chat with you soon!
