Add insomnia to my list of symptoms. I did this with my 3rd baby too. I sleep 3 hours at night and wake up wide awake. No matter how tired I was when I laid down. I can sleep all day if it's daytime. But that doesn't help me now. I have to drive 8 hours to the beach today!!
I also had to get new swimsuits. First time in my life I've worn anything other than a bikini. 😕 I keep reminding myself it's not important and I'll get back into a bikini chasing this LO around one day.
Same here with the sleep. Exhausted when I lay down but wide awake around 3-5 every night. I'm up multiple times to pee already as well. I've already had to take out some of my maternity clothes. My belly popped out so fast this time. It did last time too, but that was with twins and I was already measuring close to 30 weeks when I delivered them at 21 weeks. I don't know if I would dare with a swimming suit right now haha!
I've just noticed you're both 7 weeks! I'm so far behind! Cannot wait for those weeks to disappear. I got my swimsuit - also got a couple of cheap pairs of leggings and jeggings in a size bigger to help with this bloat. It's ridiculous! But they are so comfy! DH was calling them granny pants because the leggings are high waisted! Cheeky git! Still no full blown symptoms. I feel like I really want some morning sickness. I didn't have it with my MMC/BO just all day nausea that started at 5.5/6 weeks. Really want this to feel different.
You'll be at 7 weeks before you know it. I've been wishing the days away and each day feels like it is crawling, but then when I get to another week it doesn't seem like it has been so bad. I've been wearing mostly long skirts right now because they are way more comfortable than my jeans. I do have a couple pairs of maternity jeans I could wear, but it is still too hot here to be wearing jeans. High waisted pants are the best when you have bloat!!
I've never had really morning sickness in any of my pregnancies I feel somewhat nauseous during the day, but not overpowering. Usually the most I get is just being super tired for the first trimester.
I'm doing ok. I've been battling morning sickness and breast pain. I've had some cramping too and a horrible dream I was miscarrying again. I just keep taking it one pee at a time when I scrutinize the toilet paper making sure there's no blood on it. We got some coupons in the mail the other day for formula and my DH was questioning why and I told him it's bc we are coming up to our EDD from our last miscarriage. I had to buy a pair of maternity pants last time bc of bloating and the store I went to input me in their database and BAM now we are going to get a bunch of stuff.
That happened to me with the twins Raine. I had created a baby registry because I had a baby shower scheduled for the week that I ended up having them and I got all sorts of stuff in the mail around their due date...then to make matters worse I've started getting stuff again right now for their "1 year" birthday. Not much fun when you get that stuff.
Urgh that stuff is horrible. I started getting a few bits in the post and emails - even though I cancelled them. I had one 'guide to labour' which I thought hmmm I'm a bit early to be thinking about that. Then it dawned on me, my first EDD was mid September, so I changed my details online. Not nice when you're trying to get your head around being newly pregnant again.
I'm doing the tp inspection thing too. I keep telling myself off for it but I may aswell accept I'll be doing that for a good few months now. I also had a dream about mc last night. Horrible. So long as it stays just that - a dream / nightmare. Counting down the days till Friday now - first scan!!
Oh yes, constantly inspecting the TP. Even when I have to pee in the middle of the night. Doesn't help that I've had spotting in every pregnancy.
So excited for you for your first scan Mrs Unicorn! I got my OB intake appointment bumped up to this Friday. It isn't anything, they'll just go over history etc. for an hour, but it at least give me something to do while I wait for my 12 week appointment with high risk doctors to find out the game plan for this pregnancy.
Anyone else feeling crazy emotional? I swear, before I was pregnant it had been a long time since I had cried and now I'm getting teary at everything and have properly cried over a few things that when looking back at it now might be a little ridiculous. At first I wasn't thinking that I was really that emotional, but it appears that I am.
