I made a duplicate intro thread, so let's do randoms instead.

    I'm not usually good at all the stickied discussions--can someone do those? (How to's, Read this First, etc)

    ETA: Im incredibly bored at work. I did them, but can't figure out the spreadsheet if someone can get that one.

  • Also, there is not enough snacks in the world to keep me from being nauseous. I feel like I need to eat every 45 minutes or I'll puke.

  • @dolewhipper the board is so organized and beautiful. I have been hanging around BabyCenter October 2020 to kill time while waiting for this one to become legit and it is a trainwreck over there. A few times I thought about asking if we could control the madness but instead just deleted the app..let the crazies have their fun.

  • @Smelh324 you're a doll! I can't stand the drive bys/one off...except for the sass that comes with it. I'm not great with the google docs, so whoever can do that, I would be grateful!

  • Ahhh this app is trash. Anyone using mobile web? Is it any better? I can’t get threads to load unless I hit the refresh button and even then it only works like 40% of the time. 
    cmessamore
  • @kmalls Yep, pretty horrible. I'm a software dev so problems like that make me super cringe. I only use TB on browser for the communities. The app seems fine for weekly fruit only, haha.

    @dolewhipper Will be thinking of you on Thursday!  <3

  • @kmalls Yes I was struggling with the app too. Tried deleting and redownloading. Didn’t help. Moved to the mobile site... marginally better. At least I can access this board now!

    @dolewhipper Hang in there mama. Waiting and not knowing is TOUGH. How did you manage to get an u/s already? I can’t get in to my doc until beginning of March!

    @Smelh324  I felt the exact same way when I looked at the BabyCenter October 2020 boards.  I had no interest in being part of that craziness.

  • Listening to a pregnancy podcast and they're talking about all the recommended vitamins you need to be taking to meet minimums. It's a wonder my first two kids are alive, I definitely was not taking the perfect prenatal plus DHA plus probiotics lol. Lucky 3rd kid will be getting premium nutrition!
    cmessamoreNamelessAriadolewhipper
  • @Smelh324 errr we’re supposed to be taking probiotics? I’ve def never done that.

    @kmalls Steamrolling through 20 episodes on pregnancy is getting me by until my first U/S. A lot are health based, after a while she starts to get pretty persuasive. I may have ordered 3 different vitamins this week online...It's like I get to start buying baby stuff already, only its vitamins lol.

    ETA- She says taking probiotics can help prevent Group B Strep.

    @tdevilindrye Its just called The Pregnancy Podcast! I find this lady to be very soothing and has a ton of good topics. I've already had two births and I'm still learning a lot.
    cmessamoretdevlindryesalliesqpants
  • @Smelh324 I love that podcast and found it very helpful in my last pregnancy! 
    Smelh324
  • Hi ladies! Excited to jumping in the randoms! I thought prenatals already had probiotics?? Ummm...I am definitely taking DHA from the start this time, but other than that no big changes from my previous pregnancy. Except I am not nearly as strong physically as I was before, because who has time to workout now?? Definitely need to be better about that. 

    Work is so busy right now, I can't wait to catch a break soon! @dolewhipper sending good vibes!

  • @smg2302 lightning crotch already? Dang! I think it’s still too early for me to feel much. Coffee aversion has hit (not drinking coffee is NOT an option) but that’s it.
  • @kmalls Hahahaha, big coffee drinker here too. I'm cutting down little by little, but yeah... :#

    My boobs hurt, which was my first symptom last pregnancy too. Other than that not much going on. I didn't get lightning crotch last time until 2nd or 3rd tri.

    Being so early still makes me nervous, but I'm trying to keep all the mental "What if..."s at bay...
    kmallsmorethanamamamisty_shoe
  • @kmalls yeah not all the time, just periodically.  I also cut out coffee for New Year's resolution in anticipation of this, so no caffeine withdrawal right now, but I miss it.

    @tdevlindrye the "what-ifs" are a total mindfuck.

  • @smg2302 not yet but I’m expecting it to appear soon. It started around 5 weeks with my last. 

    @kmalls coffee aversion? That sounds awful!

  • Biggest syptom so far...sore gums, can't believe how much flossing hurts. Pretty boring other than that.

    But I swear every time I read the sore breast comment on here I instinctually put my arm up to my boob to check and then realize smushing my boobs regularly at work is bound to be noticed. Must stop.

  • The reason I decided to test was how tired I was. I was always tired but then started being very intentional about getting exercise and it increased my energy. Then I was suddenly back to no energy even though I forced myself to work out. I had insane fatigue with my MC as well, but not with my DD (maybe because I didn't have a kid already demanding energy from me? Lol).

    I didn't have morning sickness or many food aversions with DD. So far I get a little bit of a nauseous feeling in my throat but that's it.

  • I am used to drinking coffee first thing, on an empty stomach...not an option as of today. In general, I know it's not good even when not pregnant... I try to chug some water first thing when I wake up.

    I am pretty deep into the what -ifs right now but I know it's nothing I can control.  4 weeks of wait for the first appointment, we shall endure! I try to remember my symptoms with my son were always mild, so that reassures me.

    So far, nausea has kicked it up a notch today. Nothing sounds good to eat aside from CARBS. My gums are definitely more sensitive. But guys, the biggest symptom so far...pregnancy brain. This week I:
    -Forgot my stepdad's birthday
    -Forgot to move a meeting to the team calendar, so it stayed hidden in my outlook and we missed a conf call, had to email the client 5 minutes before. This is the 3rd time we reschedule with them...
    -Helped H with putting together a dresser and screwed the drawer in wrong
    -Said "Huh?" way more than I'd like to

    I'm also overwhelmed with a pretty hectic life in general, but man, this sucks. I am trying to make strides at work before maternity leave if all goes well, and this is not helping...

  • Omg this caught me by surprise last pregnancy and my mind erased. Is there a way to prepare for it besides crying?
  • Oh I just wanted to add to the podcast talk by mentioning Motherhood Sessions. The host is a therapist (I think) and she interviews women from different types of families. I like that she helps them through their problems and the information is applicable to others.

  • Aaaaand for a second I thought I posted the STM+ stuff in here. Time to up the fish oil???
  • Have had no symptoms till today exactly 4wks. Feeling super hungover and a bad headache all day. I feel like I don't remember this feeling with my previous. Good luck ladies on this journey. 
    Smelh324
  • Still no symptoms yet, except I’m maybe more tired than usual, but that could be due to my three year old acting like a total asshole lately 🤷‍♀️😂 

    My usual symptoms in first trimester are exhaustion and nausea after dinner. Still waiting on the latter. 







    Smelh324
  • Wait @Smelh324 is sore gums really a pregnancy symptom?? I had no idea—but it makes me feel a little better! 🤣 I definitely did not have this symptom with my first!
  • Current symptoms: complete exhaustion and light nausea.

    I had coffee aversion and meat aversion during my last pregnancy and it was not easy to survive. I already noticed the meat aversion a little bit and I’m bummed about it. Maybe I can still drink my coffee! 
  • @cmessamore yes to the meat aversion, ugh. I thought I was fine but then we had steak last night (my favorite) and after a few bites I was done. The taste was ok but the texture was horrendous. Couldn’t do it :'(

    Yep!! You're supposed to be really likely to have red or even bleeding gums, that it's doubly important to floss and have check-ups for you and baby. Look at us, getting real symptoms  B)
