KPME and KILEY: I wasn't as active in the TTC forum initially after my BFP for a few reasons- it was tough to read some of the miscarriage stories when I was feeling anxious enough on my own about getting through my first trimester. -I also felt a little guilty that it happened fairly quickly for me, and I didn't like feeling that way. -I felt so awful during those first bunch of weeks that it was hard enough just getting through my workday, let alone reading and responding to posts. - I felt bad about complaining about my symptoms knowing that so many women would love to be in my shoes.
I continue to stay in the TTC forums so I can follow those I've gotten to know and adore. I want our online friends to get pregnant so badly and feel the joy of getting a positive pregnancy test and hearing their baby's heartbeat for the first time. Those two moments are two of the best moments i've had in my life.
Hi girls, sorry for the quick post and then silence. Kiley, I am def nausea buddy with you! 6w5d today and lots of nausea. On Friday it was the worst, over the weekend it got a little better....so much so that I was worried! But then i puked last night for the first time! I had made a beef stew for dinner all day in the crockpot and then when it came time to eat it, it looked so unappealing to me I made pasta with butter for myself instead! I work at a college with an excellent dining hall, and I am actually psyched to have a bunch of work meetings this week. Once I can get over all the smells and the indecision of what looks appealing, I have an awesome salad bar and lots of healthy choices.
Also starting to be exhausted. Went to bed at 8pm Saturday night.
Kpme- Yep that sounds about right. One minute I think I want something and then in a split second the thought of that same thing makes me want to vomit. As far as exhaustion goes there are some days that I want to go to bed at 7. When is your first doctor appt? I went right around 6.5 weeks. Doc said everything looked perfect and I got a due date of October 31st. Halloween baby! I go again neXt Wednesday, April 1st. I'll be 9w+4 at that one.
Jessie- Yep that's exactly how I feel when I go back to the TTC boards. I'm in a couple groups on FB and hate reading about miscarriages. I feel terrible for them and scared for myself.
Had a good day today. No nausea and had a great workout. Finally had full energy and strength and did not feel like I was completely out of shape. I hope this keeps up! It was nice!
The ttc and first tri boards are scary places when pg !!! I also tried to avoid them in the first 12 weeks . Gosh time is going by so quickly from the outside looking in !!! The tiredness just awful the " I can't keep my eyes open " kind lol...... So how does the maternity services work where you live ? Do you find and pick your on obgyn ?
I think it depends on what kind on insurance you have. I get to pick my own. I was actually referred to my ob/gyn about 5+ years ago by my family doctor because they found pre-cancer cells on my cervix. I really love my doc. He is a pretty no nonsense kind of guy and has wonderful bedside manner. I feel totally comfortable with him.
4th day in a row of no nausea today! I am also getting some of my appetite back. I am able to eat most of the foods I normally eat again without feeling sick.
Kiley, thanks for the reassurance! I am 6w, 6d today. I have an ultra sound next Friday, 4/3, which will be right around 8 weeks. I have had no spotting and nearly no cramps so far, but other than that, I'm in the dark as to whether im in "good shape" or not! Right now my analysis is nausea = good. Bb are sore, though that has improved somewhat. Weird sleep things too! I am taking a work trip with a colleague tomorrow for two nights and will be interested to see if I end up having to tell her! I'd rather avoid it but we will see if I get carsick!
I picked my OB. I asked my primary, who I love, and she recommended a colleague. Only met with the OB when I miscarried in October, but she was great then so I'm sticking with her!
Yes, all those signs look good. Great that you have not had any spotting or cramping. Did you when you miscarried in October? Early on I had the dull cramping from my uterus stretching but that is it. My boobs are not as tender as they were at first, but it now seems to be an off and on thing. Got up last night to go to the bathroom and they were really hurting. Its kinda weird how one day you feel fine and the next day you are feeling terrible. I have had to make adjustments on how I sleep. I can no longer sleep flat on my back or side or I get heartburn. So the last week I have been sleeping propped up on a bunch of pillows. It has helped a lot and I also think it has helped with the nausea as well. Good luck on your trip! Hopefully you do not get car sick.
I made my Facebook Announcement. I really like how it turned out. I do not think I am going to make it "Facebook Official" until 12 weeks (April 18th), or at least until all my brothers and sisters know. So far my parents, in-laws, and one of my sisters know and a couple close friends. So I have four brothers and one more sister to tell. I do not see them often so I will probably have to call them. I guess a phone call would be better than they finding out through Facebook!
