Just wanted to see if people were interested in a feed for first time moms?

    Anyone else having exorcism style vomiting?? I heard this happens but I thought it was a joke! 
  • @taty33 OMG that sounds so violent... are YOU having it? I hope that never happens to me. I'm going to start taking B6 to ward off any potential nausea. Apparently it takes a while to build up in the system and the nausea really start to kick in ~week 8.

    Haha @acleverusername it really is!  I’m at 5w5d and I’ve started to have this- I’ve been throwing up since 3w6d but yesterday was something new. 
    I will have to look into B6! Thanks for the tip! 
  • I've definitely been feeling more queasy the last couple of days. I started B6 today. I'm in meetings 90% of my days and they're mostly "camera-on" meetings. So I really don't want to be very sick.

  • I am also a first time mom and my first ultrasound isn't until the 22nd so definitely hoping the time goes by quickly!! Feeling that need for reassurance that something's actually there! Lol 
    taty33
  • I actually scheduled a physical with a midwife next Tuesday before knowing I was pregnant because I wanted a Pap smear !
    I wonder if they will also treat it as a prenatal/confirmation of pregnancy visit🧐
    nsk489acleverusername
  • nsk489nsk489 member
    @babitobebe they should!! Tell your midwife that you might be pregnant and they will have you pee in a cup while you are there 😊 I just had my annual visit and hadn't had a postpartum period yet so my OB tested me just in case (wasn't pregnant at that time but got pregnant immediately after that visit)
    babitobebe
  • I had my first US yesterday at 6w2d. I am going to be working with a midwife, but since it was so early still, the doctor did the first US. It was pretty much just a confirmation of pregnancy. We saw a heartbeat but didn't hear it, and she didn't measure the heartbeat. I'm going to a follow up with my midwife in two weeks, so I think we'll getore information there! 
    acleverusername
  • @mcmanda4321 I also didn't hear the heartbeat (only saw it) on Wed. Hopefully we'll get to hear that sweet sound next time around!
