Re: Weekly Symptoms Thread 3/20

  • I have the worst trapped gas. And terrible heart burn. But hello second trimester! Where is my energy? Lol

    I really thought the nausea was better.... it is SO bad today. I threw up on my way to work. When does this end? 

    Other than that... a lot of crampiness- especially at night, terrible gag reflex, and lots of discharge. (Eww)

    @HollyGolightly09 I'm also cramping a lot in the last week or two!!! Also saw an increase in discharge recently. I wasn't prepared to feel wet this whole pregnancy. It wasn't this bad with DS! :neutral: 

    Still having the rash. Fatigue has hit hard. I feel exhausted during the day, but wake up at night and can't sleep. The heartburn and indigestion at night is miserable. 
  • @kelseyrayay the trapped gas is the worst! I've been having that a lot lately as well. Miserable. 

    I'm 12+3. So excited to almost be out of the 1st trimester. 

    Nausea hs slowed down, but my appetite is still missing. I'm basically forcing myself to eat. Poor DH is picking up the slack in the cooking department otherwise DD would be eating cereal for every meal.

    Nausea is still hanging about, but I have been enjoying that 2nd tri energy boost lately! Hopefully the nausea goes away soon so I can eat like a normal person. Food just all sounds gross right now.

    It seems the nausea has slacked up some as I am not taking B6 as much anymore. Either that or I just suck it up better. I was doing good with keeping food down until Friday night, DH and I walked outside of the restaurant and things started to immediately come up. 

    Energy is slowly coming back. Last night I folded 3 loads of laundry AND unloaded and loaded the dishwasher. That't more than I've done in weeks.

    Had a burst of energy on Saturday and got my whole house cleaned and helped DH start our garden. Nausea is back today, but I'm hoping for more good days than bad days this week.

  • 12w 3D....my all day nausea has subsided, small waves here and there. Big waves of exhaustion, and headaches! This morning woke up to a tingling/sometimes stabbing pain in my right boob! It's more annoying than anything else. I didn't have this 1st time around and I'm not one to get sore boobs during period time, so this is a new fun treat for me lol
    also, the discharge! Ewww. 1st time I didn't really have that bad until the end,  it this time it kicked in around 11 weeks. Cool.

    Holy headache all day yesterday and lingering this morning.  It is like someone punched me in the face.  It is horrible sinus pressure but no congestion.

    Also very very wet.  I have had an insane amount of discharge this past weekend.


    Hungry all the time.

    Headaches have been really bad the last few days.  And I've been getting really rage-y.  I was fuming on Saturday b/c we didn't make a plan beforehand and I felt like DH and I ended up wasting the day.  Digestion is changing again.  First ~10 weeks I was going all the time, then normal for 2ish weeks, now things are SLOW.  Having a terrible time sleeping- can't fall asleep, then wake up at ~2am every night.  Woke up with back pain today (had been sleeping on my back).  Haven't had an "growing pains" for 2 weeks, which makes me nervous, but we just saw baby last week, so everything seems to be fine.

  • I have a question about round ligament pain... everything I've read about it says it's usually worse when you move suddenly or differently than you are used to. Why is mine so bad at night? Especially when I've been in the same position for a while? I described the pain to my Dr and she seemed sure that's what it is, but it seems odd that it's when I'm lying still. It's starting to make me nervous... 
    Pregnancy Ticker
  • @HollyGolightly09 I'm not sure why it happens but it has definitely been happening lately to me at night too. Especially last night. I had to get up because DS was calling me and I had to just sit there for a minute because it was very uncomfortable. It happened with my last pregnancy too.

    I'm 13+1 and I'm having different timing with my MS but it's definitely not gone. I usually wake up feeling pretty decent but then make a steep decline by mid afternoon. Plus this constant nagging headache all the time. It's not actually painful, it's just noticeable. But I'm definitely happy to be finished with the first trimester!!

  • @HollyGolightly09 I wouldn't worry about it if the dr. isn't.   I'm having the same issues its usually only at night when I'm getting up from the couch or when I'm sleeping I'll sometimes wake up and feel it.
    HollyGolightly09
  • The only symptom I have right now is headaches. And my belly is getting a little bigger. The lack of symptoms has me nervous and I know it's totally normal but I haven't felt any movement yet and my only confirmation that everything is good with baby is my monthly appointments. I have an upcoming appointment this Friday so that makes me happy. :) I'm going to take DD this time so that she can hear the heartbeat too.

    -terrible heartburn
    -lots of pelvic, abdominal, and back pain. Everything is stretching out at once, and it hurts!
    -headaches most evenings
    - +1 on the insane amount of discharge train. It actually made me nervous while trying in maternity clothes- I didn't want to gush on something and have to buy it, haha!
    -hungry all the time, but still lots of food aversions. I can't stand the smell or taste of anything thats been cooked with oil, or the sight of any raw meat.

  • Forgot to mention in my above post...

    At my appointment on Friday my blood pressure was high. I was a nervous wreck going in because I was terrified that something happened to the baby. But also, I have "white coat syndrome" and get nervous and any and every Dr. appointment. So now I have to monitor my blood pressure. Over the past couple days it's still been higher than I'd prefer.

    Anyone have any experience with high blood pressure during pregnancy or suggestions? 
  • @dogdisnylovr  I have major Dr anxiety and always tell them before they check my blood pressure that I have anxiety issues and sometimes it is high because of that. If mine is ever high, they recheck it before I leave... after I've sat there for a little while and already talked to the Dr. It has always been lower at the end of the appt.

    wyomama0427dogdisnylovr
  • @HollyGolightly09 I have to have mine rechecked sometimes too, but because mine gets too low. I don't know why it's so low, but it was always making me dizzy and stuff. I wish there was some way we could even each other out and I could take some of your blood pressure lol. 
    dogdisnylovrHollyGolightly09
  • @HollyGolightly09 They did re-check it before I left and it had gone down some but not enough for the Dr.'s liking. Even if they tell me to sit there and think happy thoughts, my mind always go the opposite direction and it gets worse because I'm trying so hard to calm down. Hoping to avoid medication, or worse, preclampsia.

    @wyomama0427 Oh I wish that was a thing because I would gladly give you some of mine.

    My constant nausea is back. I seriously want to throw up all.the.time. but don't ever do it - just upset tummy I guess. 
    And heartburn is the worst!
    I'm having trouble sleeping! I have a pregnancy pillow and all, but I just can't get comfortable at night. :(

  • @eeyorefan215 oh no sorry to hear it's back. That must be the worse especially since you probably thought it was gone for good. Makes me nervous! 
    I'm so over being nauseous. 

    14+4: slowly getting my energy back. Went to my parents for a BBQ yesterday and I was able to take my nephew to the park and run around with him. MS seems to only be hitting at nights now. Hope it goes away completely soon.

    I am still feeling terrible. I will have a good day and then 3 bad days with the constant nausea and heartburn. When does the second trimester relief come? 

    @dogdisnylovr My blood pressure is whack. Unfortunately I am on medication for it as well, but when I go to a doctor's office it is still crazy high due to my anxiety. I take my BP at home everyday and it is normal. Try taking deep breaths in and out while they are taking your blood pressure or you can also tell them to wait til the end of your appt to take it. I have done both. Good luck!

    Physically I feel so much better. Nausea/vomiting has stopped, exhaustion feels so much better. Basically feel normal again. 
    Emotionally I feel like a mess! I feel so flat and miserable and just shitty. I never feel like this normally. I'm not an emotional person at all. I'm hoping it's just the hormones. Is anyone else feeling like this at all?

    +1 on the discharge train. So much. It's pretty overwhelming.
    These headaches are miserable. I have a migraine disorder so whenever I get a headache i get so cautious and am petrified i will have a migraine and I cannot take my prescription. Tylenol is a joke.
    Exhaustion is still hanging out. I usually have a good burst of energy then I just go flat.
    My stomach is getting firmer and i feel like im getting thicker.
    I occasionally get little twinges in my pelvic region that take me off guard.

    I feel like a baby today. I do not want to go to work. I think I'm going to blame it on the internet people. But honestly I have a little headache and I didnt sleep well last night and I just want to stay home.

    -cramping/back aches are constant
    -headaches
    -insomnia
    -Sore boobs (after WEEKS of no soreness)

    And now heavy spotting. I freaked out on Friday and went into the dr. Baby was totally fine. Technician said it's too soon to tell, but if my placenta is right on top of my cervix I will probably bleed/spot from now on. It was ok all weekend and yesterday, and now the heavy spotting is back. Trying not to freak out. But I really just want to go home and lay down.
  • @JustBored10  I'm feeling super self conscious about my boobs, they've changed so much.  I've been keeping my bra on with DH.  :flushed:  I feel like you could read braille off of my areolas and my nipples are just obscene.

    Yes, but I've also been getting a heat rash in my cleavage, and wherever my bra sits/rubs all day. But my boobs are too sore to go without a bra very often. :expressionless: I've been saying it since mine first came in in the seventh grade- boobs are the worst.

  • My boobs are sooooo huge. I can't even imagine what they'll look like at the end of this. I'm a pretty small girl 110 5'3" with 32DD natural boobs. I haven't bought a new bra yet b/c I know I'll just grow out of that one any moment too so I've been living in sports bras. I can't imagine what size I am now. My poor back. :disappointed:

    15+5, getting headaches now and nipple soreness is back making nursing quite unpleasant. I thought I was past that  :'( And still the same old MS and no appetite crap. 
  • 13+5, and I have the most terrible rib pain. For the past few days now it's been driving me mad. Had a coworker today that has had 4 kids tell me it just means I'm going to be in pain for the rest of the pregnancy, because my frame is small and there's just less room for things to move. Wonderful.
    And my moodiness has hit an all time high. I never cry. Ever. And I have been tearing up constantly because of the smallest things. I feel like I'm losing my mind. 
    And the baby brain is so real. I'm such an airhead lately.

    I am the opposite of this. I usually cry frequently. DH says I have an empathy problem, because any emotional commercial or Facebook post, and I'm tearing up. And I was an emotional mess in early to mid first tri. But I'm like a stone wall lately. I haven't cried in weeks, and people have asked me if I'm actually excited about this baby. I really, really am, I just don't feel super emotional right now.
