Well pretty sucky because I'm sick, but as far as being pregnant pretty good. My boobs are slightly sore (they were much worse), that is about it. I am more emotional now than I was at first. I did have some cramps in the first couple of weeks, but none now. I haven't been to my first appointment yet (one week from today!) and already my symptoms (what few I have had) are dying down. My skin turned super greasy two weeks ago for about 3 days, but that went away pretty quick too. No M/S (yet). I have had no bloating, in fact my regular bloating has gone down. I have lost a couple of pounds (not from M/S) probably from drinking more water and cutting out cokes.
This is my first, so I have no idea what to expect, but so far so good!

Feeling a little better the past couple days which of course has me worried too. Hoping it doesn't come back with a vengeance... overall this pregnancy has been easier than the other two. I've only puked twice and I remember with the others I started counting how many times I had thrown up and eventually lost count! I do get yucky feeling if I don't eat regularly - either get nauseous or just empty feeling and it's always worse in the evenings. But I've been able to eat more dinners now with the family instead of having something different.
Oh man, I hear you girls on the M/S! I have been on Zofran for about a month and it is saving my life. It's not perfect, but I can at least function like a normal human being. We just told our families at 12 weeks, and it was really hard hiding it before that feeling so lousy. I was super sick with DD1 so I sorta expected it, but it seemed to hit me earlier on this time. I hope we all start feeling better soon!

Nicole sorry to hear you are still dealing with M/S @ 12 weeks. I keep telling myself in a few weeks I'm going to feel better, so hearing that kind of freaks me out. One day at a time I suppose. I'm going to ask for zofran this week bc I was at my worst this past weekend.
OOOOOHHHHHH I love Zofran! I actually made a thread called I LOVE ZOFRAN! lol. It does make a huge difference. Not only does it help my stomach, but it calms that trigger gag reflex that generally makes me puke over NOTHING.
However, my insurance will only pay for it twice a year(?) so I'm paying out of pocket for it. But I don't care. Totally worth it.
Man, I was feeling better this past week, I have been working out and such.. Until yesterday when I did a 90 minute cardio excerise and went to get my blood drawn for tests... For some reason we are back to square one. m/s, headaches, heart palps, I almost feel like I can focus on anything...grr..
Still no m/s, but I've had some off and on mild nausea. I did fill a Zofran script JIC but I haven't needed it yet, knock on wood.
I am still exhausted most days and seriously considering getting an Aerobed for my office so I can take a nap on my lunch hour. I am in bed at 10 most nights if not earlier.
I am getting super emotional - I am not a crier and I keep crying at sad commercials and dumb stuff.
I was on a good run of not throwing up but that ended last night. I've been pretty miserable ever since.
My biggest issue is acid reflux, it gags me and THAT causes me to get sick. I start feeling queasy and my acid reflux starts acting up and its just a downward spiral from there.
Here's hoping we all feel better soon!
