    How far along are you? 7 weeks!

    How big is baby? a blueberry, or a tic tac!

    Upcoming appointments this week? none this week, US next week!

    Any new symptoms or changes? the vomiting started last night and my throat is so sore now! :( 

    Rants/Raves/Questions? For ladies whose morning sickness has started to worsen, how are you hiding it at work? I'm afraid my secret's gonna be out this week if I can't keep anything down 

    GTKY: What was your favorite bedtime story/book as a child? There are a lot, but one of my faves was The Velveteen Rabbit! I actually bought it again in college because I couldn't find my old copy anymore. So now it's here ready for me to read it to our little one someday...

    I am sorry your throat is sore! Since I have no personal experience / advice to offer I searched online and found this article. Other articles said sucking on peppermint candies or gum and eating saltines.

    @manillabar That sucks about the nausea - hopefully no one notices, but if one or two do, maybe you can mumble something about food poisoning and move on quickly?? 

    @Bonbonpaw
    I'm so sorry you're feeling stressed and anxious - thinking so many positive thoughts for you! 

    How far along are you? 
    5 weeks 

    How big is baby? Peppercorn (jealous of the blueberries above me here :) )

    Upcoming appointments this week? Not until 12/1, but might call the doctor this week to talk about some abdominal discomfort on my right side (see below)

    Any new symptoms or changes? I've been diagnosed with cysts on my ovaries in the past and I'm worried about one on my right side: there's this kind of persistent discomfort/twingy feeling there that was increasing before I got pregnant and I want to make sure it's nothing to worry about if it is a cyst. (*TW: Because it was happening before pregnancy, I've had this in the past, and my wonfos have been darkening like crazy from my first bfp, I'm not super concerned about an ectopic pregnancy but obviously also want to rule this out, too). Other than that I've just started to feel more pregnant if that makes sense? The fatigue, bloating, and gas feel a bit worse, but it's just more a general "my body feels different" sense.

    Rants/Raves/Questions? See above -  anyone have experience with cysts during pregnancy? How concerned should I be? 

    GTKY: What was your favorite bedtime story/book as a child? So many great ones! Goodnight Moon was probably my favorite - I loved looking for the mouse on every page :)

    @Bonbonpaw - I am sorry you're worried. Sending good vibes and sticky bean vibes to you.

    @Pepper16 - Hopefully it is not a cyst and just your body adjusting to being pregnant but if it is a cyst it should be okay. ""If a functional ovarian cyst is found during pregnancy, it won't usually cause you or your baby any problems at all.""

    How far along are you? 5 weeks

    How big is baby? An appleseed or an orange seed based on two different apps (or as I see above me - a peppercorn)

    Upcoming appointments this week? Waiting to hear my official blood test results. Should have those tomorrow. I don't have an appointment until December 12th. They do first appointments between 8-10 weeks and my Dr. is out during my 8th week so we're in the 9th. We will get an ultrasound then though so that's really exciting.

    Any new symptoms or changes? Well I'm new here so I've been exhausted and having intermittent nausea since before I could get a BFP to show so that's not new to me. Boobs have started to feel sore and heavy this week. I already have large boobs so those being more of a problem is not exciting to me.

    Rants/Raves/Questions? Anybody reading pregnancy books or have some they recommend? I got the may Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy and a book for DH and one about helping our dog adjust (she's high energy). I'd love more options (also - cats...not sure how our cat is going to respond so tips there or books suggestions would be great. Although I think he knows I'm pregnant. He is generally a cuddler by my face or in my armpit (he's weird) and he has suddenly become a tummy cuddler)

    GTKY: What was your favorite bedtime story/book as a child? I don't remember many from when I was little but Charlotte's Web was a favorite. I listened to the book on tape going to be most nights and had the book memorized for a long time.

    @baxgirl - I just bought the book "What to expect when you're expecting". Also, my cats are doing the same thing! They also would walk across my belly if I was laying in bed or on the couch but now they will jump down (if I am on the couch) or walk around me (if I am on the bed)

    I thought about that one and heard that everybody either loves it or hates it so let me know what you end up thinking.

    Crazy animals know so quickly when something is new. The dog has been weird and WAY more cuddly with me than DH (she loves him and is okay with me). Cat has always loved me most but he's just showing it differently now. I saw a book on Amazon called "Tell Your Cat You're Pregnant" - I'm pretty sure he already knows.

    @baxgirl - Yes animals are very sensitive to things like that. I will let you know what I think of it as I get more into the book. I know my doctor's office recommended it so that's part of why I got it.

    Also, there's a thread in the 1st Trimester board where people suggested some books: https://forums.thebump.com/discussion/12693064/book-recommendations#latest

    @manillabar - thanks! Not sure why, but I'm actually quite nervous... I've done this all before so it should be NBD, but...

    @LimeKrazy - I totally get wanting to just say it in day-to-day. I keep trying to blame stuff on "pregnancy brain" but I can't do that outside of the house with DH. My poor students whose names I keep forgetting/mixing up this week...

    Better late than never?

    How far along are you? 
    5 weeks

    How big is baby? appleseed/peppercorn

    Upcoming appointments this week? none yet!

    Any new symptoms or changes? just sore boobs, mild nausea, weepiness and fatigue--I feel like I walk 10 steps and need a nap!

    Rants/Raves/Questions? got a little steamed by a judgmental friend when I mentioned wanting to use a midwife  :|

    GTKY: What was your favorite bedtime story/book as a child? I also loved The Velveteen Rabbit! It still makes me cry. The original Angelina Ballerina was another favorite, and Blueberries for Sal.
