Re: Symptoms, 12/3

  • I am 5w 4d and have been exhausted since 3w. I am so tired all of the time yet can't sleep. I also have been cramping for 2weeks and since they kind of feel like PMS cramps, I've been eating comfort food.-need to nip that in the bud quickly! But nausea should be kicking in soon right??

    This is my 6th pregnancy, hopefully 3rd take home, and I have never had morning sickness. Only time I get nauseous is if I don’t eat every 3-4 hours.

  • My first symptom this time was heartburn which I had at the end of my pregnancy with my 2 year old and that is the only other time I have ever had it so to have it before I had my positive test this time seems crazy.  Also a bit crampy and tired!

    So so nauseous. All the time. 

    @ecwk I think they can be. I have a friend who is due in feb and she said she’s had headaches her entire pregnancy this times. I hope for your sake it’s not though. She said it’s been terribly. 

    Are you taking Diclegis or b6 with unisom? Although I was nauseous the entire 9.5 months with pregnancy, this helped me not vomit everywhere and make work more doable. Lots of citrus like oranges and lemon helped too. Seltzer water with lemon was my go to for the first two trimesters, then my last trimester ice chewing and cold ice water.

  • I've been having sex dreams which weirdly I only seem to have when KU. Also have some boob pain, fatigue and craving vinegary sweet and sour things.

  • Hello! I'm back for my second time around at 4w3d. So far symptoms seem to be the same as my previous pregnancy: extreme fatigue and achey sides.

  • @ecwk I felt super bloated last week (and put on 2 lbs of I guess water weight according to my scale) but it has mostly gone away this week. I don't think it is too early for bloat based on the literature I've been reading!

     I feel bloated already. I thought it was PMS bloat until I got my BFP. I’ve heard it’s worse with subsequent pregnancies, but I was hoping I’d get lucky. I may have to switch out my wardrobe sooner this time....

    @legallykate @lalala2004 I just remembered yesterday that I gave my 3 main maternity dresses to a friend who is due in April. Damn.

    I’m in a pickle because a huge portion of my maternity clothes are long sleeves. I’m going to need some more summer stuff... Or maybe I’ll just wear sun dresses all the time. I won’t be working in third tri. #teacherlife

    @lalala2004 ; excellent point. With DS being born in March, I don't have any summer maternity clothes. Don't really fancy shelling out a ton of money on them either! OT but what do you plan to do with regards going back to work?

    As of now I’m only working part time out side the home, anyway. My old school worked with me and I just teach a couple of classes (block schedule) and they pay me like a sub. I’m also teaching English online to kids in China. So since this baby will be born basically on the first day of school, I have no intention of working outside the home next school year. I may consider having them put me on the sub list in the second semester, maybe for one day a week, we’ll see. I’ll just try to work more hours with my online job. Fortunately DH’s job pays all the bills. Whatever I do is just for extra spending a saving. I like having my “own” money.

  • I am kind of lucky in that my weight has always fluctuated so I have clothes two sizes down and up from where I currently am and can probably get away with wearing the larger ones for a while (and everyone at work will assume I am just gaining weight again, which I guess is a plus?)

  • @legallykate I alsohave a lot of clothes in bigger sizes because I had just lost a bunch of weight before getting pregnant with DS and after he was born it took me a year to lose the weight and then some, so many of my clothes are big. I’m kind of annoyed people will probably think I’m just gaining the weight back until I tell people. It makes me want to tell people sooner... I shouldn’t be so vain...

  • Hair tie trick can avoid part of the 'fat or pregnant' part. 

    You use a hair tie elastic to help 'button' your jeans/slacks and a longer top so no one notices.

    Yeah, I did that last time and I managed to mostly stay in normal clothes until 20 weeks, but when I told my students, one definitely said “Oh, I thought you had just gained weight!” :neutral:

  • I am 3w5d I think - super early. I didn't find out this early with my son but I feel a bit crazy this go around, haha! Thanks, OPKs. Anyway, I am STARVING, metal taste in mouth, a few bad headaches (I have migraines and took Advil on Sunday, oops, but at least I didn't take my Relpax!), boobs are tingly and lots lots lots of minor but persistent cramping. And my back hurts. I am really active usually and I only made it to the gym once this week. No extreme tiredness yet. Did I say I was STARVING?

  • @Firemanswife11 I’m 3w5d too, and my hunger has kicked in full force today! I need to start carrying more snacks....

    I just gobbled up a pack of Fritos and considering another bag. I told myself it was a better choice than the Cheetos. I also told myself I wouldn’t gain 50 lbs again :grimace:

    Same. But I lost it before, I can lose it again. I’d just rather make it a little easier on myself!

  • @lalala2004 two years ago when I was teaching 5th graders and was in first tri but hadn't told the kids yet, one of the boys said, "____, I think maybe that shirt is too small for you!" I gave him hell for it (nicely) and then wore it again the day I was going to tell the kids. He said absolutely nothing but when I told them all and they were being congratulatory he was like, THATS why your clothes are too small! Things kids say, lol.

  • I almost feel like I'm not even pregnant. I did before I got my BFP (nausea, exhausted, sensitive breasts, etc). Now I just have the occasional twinges/cramps and sensitive breasts.  Sometimes a headache and frequent urination. My first pregnancy, I had it all, the whole nine yards - so we'll see how this one pans out.

    After my symptoms subsided somewhat yesterday, they are back in full force today! Bloat, cramps, tender breasts, and fatigue. These four symptoms have been pretty constant since just before the 4w mark. The fatigue is by far the worst of it, and it hits me out of nowhere at times.
  •     
  • I'm 4+2 and my boobs are KILLING me. I'm exhausted, crampy, and food aversions are kicking in. This is my second and I don't remember it being this bad this early on with my first. I have a cold that I haven't been able to shake for almost 2 weeks. Just overall miserable.  :(
  • 4wks today. Oh whoa is me LOL this back pain is killing me. I don't remember this from the first time, at least in the beginning. I started with the nausea pretty early on with pregnancy one and it's starting with this one already too. I can't even really call it nausea, my tummy just feels uneasy all the time and nothing but carbs sounds good. Hopefully it stays that way and full on nausea doesn't hit. For my first I lived off goldfish and 7Up for almost 20 weeks, with relief long enough in the evening to eat a descent dinner. 
    Otherwise my boobs are crazy heavy and sore. Tiredness hasn't set in yet, outside of my chasing a toddler all day already tiredness.

  • @kindbytealikat Saaaame here. I was just whining to my coworker that my back was killing me! Definitely didn't start this early first time around. 


  • @lalala2004 I have horrible bowels when i'm pregnant. I think I have UN-diagnosed IBS anyway but when i'm pregnant it's 100x's worse. I'll go from constipated to diarrhea and back and forth  for the next 9 months. YAY! :/

    Last pregnancy it was just constipated, but that may have something to do with the insane amount of bananas I ate. I stopped buying them because DS was getting constipated, but maybe I’ll buy them and eat them in secret!

    I’m also with you and always wondering “Is this pregnancy tired, or my normal tired?”

    Experienced shortness of breathe today which I remember experiencing early last time too. I don't really know why. It's like I cannot breathe fully and deeply enough even when I take a huge breath. It's so weird. Later on I can see it being caused by baby in rib cage but at the point I'm not sure

  • @ecwk it has the due with the change of blood flow especially in beginning as your body is adjusting to the change. Remember oxygen is carried on red blood cells and now that blood has somewhere else to focus on

  • @kindbytealikat That makes so much sense! I ran up the stairs carrying my son this morning and had to bend over for a few minutes to catch my breath. My partner was like, what just happened??? 
  •     
  • @ecwk yeah, that was probably one of my first symptoms that I was like, "Oh, yep, pregnancy." My heart pounds so hard and I get out of breath even getting riled up when talking about something lol. AND I am in the best shape of my life right now. It happens to us all! I remember last pregnancy I could barely walk up a flight of stairs. 


    ecwk
  • I’m glad to know I’m not alone in being SO winded already. I had a hard time reading DS a book last night. 
    Also, for those worried about cramps, I have had in past and current I think they’re pretty normal! I had to take Tylenol Tuesday for them. 
    No sore boobs yet just fuller. 
    Thats all for now!
