Hi guys, I hope you guys have been doing good. I'm finally experiencing the not fun symptoms. My breasts are so sore, Im tired all the time, sometimes the thought of food makes me wanna hurl, I feel like I have that restless leg syndrome, and I'm getting fat! I haven't gained any actual weight on the scale, but none of my clothes seem to fit. I heard that you start to show earlier with your second pregnancy, but this is really early. It's starting to get on my nerves! lol I love being big and preggo, but I feel like right now I just look like Im putting on weight!
On a happier note, I go and have my first ultrasound on the 26th and I absolutely cannot wait! Seeing the little bean in there and hearing "her" heartbeat is gonna be the best!
I feel my clothes a bit tight now, although I have a long way to go before I start showing, but I do feel I have some extra weight on.
I decided to walk home from work today, as being in a stuffy office can really make me more tired than I already am. The fresh air, sunshine and excercise felt great! Now I just want to take another cat nap! I read that last week the heartbeat would have started. I think that is so amazing!!!! Tomorrow I start Week 7. I will have a baby the size of a raspberry by the end of the week LOL.. too funny! Baby is growing fast!!!
as well as ya'll I am due in November...I have a due date for NOV5th..
I hadn't really begun to feel any symptoms untill my 6th weeks...
I have morning sickness everyday--usually throughout the morning and it seems to get better throughout the evening.
I bought the sea-band for morning sickness but it does not seem to be helping too much. I can usually only hold small meals in my stomach and those that are eaten later in the day.
This is my first baby so I am excited about that but I just want this morning sickness to be over soon.
Like many of you I also sleep a lot...
It's nice to have found a forum with ladies that I can relate myself too!!
Genesis.. I have been lucky so far and have had no morning sickness. I will take the sore bbs and tiredness and frequent peeing anyday over morning sickness!
Due Nov 20!!! woot wooooot!!!!
I'm so excited!! I have my first ultrasound scheduled for april 14th (which is me and my hubbys 2nd year anniversary!)......
Not too many symptoms, i had stomach problems before, so no surprise that they are 10 times worse....my stomach is so bloated, i look like i'm already 6 months pregnant lol
Well, i'm glad that i'm able to get to know you ladies!! It's nice to share info with people who are sharing and experiencing the joys of pregnanacy at the same time.
hi guys, sorry its been a little bit. Im in my 7th week according to when I went for my blood test. I go tomorrow for my first appointment and ultrasound and im so excited! That will give us a better idea exactly how far along I am. Plus, I will get to see the baby! Or should I say the peanut? lol
I am feeling extra queasy today. This has been the first time I have actually thrown up in the past few weeks so I guess I am doing ok. Apparently my tummy doesn't like cinnamon raisin toast! lol I also can't stand Mexican food anymore, and that is my fav. But on the bright side, I am not as moody as I was those first couple of weeks! lol
I hope you ladies are doing good!
Hi again, I'm at 6 weeks now & just yesterday I had a bit of a scare.. some bright red blood! But there wasn't much of it, and turned into brown spotting right away.. then disappeared and no sign of it today. My doctor is having me do 3 HCG blood tests over the next few days to see if my levels are going up (good) or down (bad). So please cross your fingers for me, this is my first time & I've been wanting this pregnancy for 2 years.. my final blood test is on Monday & hopefully I'll know my results soon after that.
I hope the rest of you are doing well! That's exciting MommyMoss, I hope your ultrasound went well, do you get to keep a picture of the "peanut" for your fridge??
Im 24 and i'm due november 17th. This is our second try. i missacarried the first time due to anxiety. I just hope this time the baby is healthy and safe. I am just so stressed that something is going to happen at every abdomen pain and morning sickness. Is there any advice to calm my nerves? I know I'm anxious as it is and the stress makes it worse for the baby. Or just any advice in general for a new mom? Also my job is so stressful and the lack of sleep and fatigue is really getting to me?

I just took my test last night and am dying to tell SOMEONE! Very fresh...not sure of the exact date may be the end of Nov or beginning of Dec. And since the Dec. board isn't up and going yet...I will visit with you ladies until I get a confirmation on my due date! I am 33 with 2 children 6 and 7. All have been planned...and this one we got on our first go around! That was way too quick! But ohhh sooo Happy!
I had morning sickness with both children...and to be honest...I was very thankful for it! It was my way of knowing that everything is alright...everything was progressing!!! That is what my Dr. told me...so it was actually a relief when it did happen. I got it every morning during the 1st trimester with my son and 1/2 into my second with my daughter. So, Shammyrockers...keep that in mind and be thankful for it...it will ease your mind!
Congrats to all! It is hard not telling people for me...plus I know if I say anything to my kids the whole school will know! Not sure how long I will last...plus we will be visiting the in-laws this up coming weekend...and man that will be hard to bite our lips!
Congratulations to you all! We are expecting our first on November 11 and are incredibly excited. It certainly comes with anxiety, though - I want to enjoy this time, but also want to get through the first trimester so I can breathe a sigh of relief. I've had consistent cramping the whole time, but because I know it's my uterus growing, I secretly love those twinges because I know my body's getting ready for our baby. Exhaustion and breast pain are part of my pregger package, too.
