So how is everyone feeling these days?

Well I'm feeling fine still! Although, I'm vveerryyy tired by 3:00 but it's from work. I'm usually this tired like the whole month of September! I've noticed my boobs barely hurt since last week and it's been consistent. They usually will fluctuate but now they have just stayed like that. They aren't different at all either, not bigger, nothing... :confused: If it weren't for the US I would totally be in a panic! I have moments of nausea but its when I'm hungry. That's pretty much it. It kinda stinks in a way! Sad

You are so blessed!!!! I know it may not seem like it to you but you are. I am on my third trial of anti-nausea meds. These aren't working either so sometime this week I should be getting a pump placed in my tummy (I guess that's where they put it) that constantly pumps anti- nausea meds into my system. I can't wait. I PRAY that this gives me some relief. I seriously can't keep going like this! My poor 2 year old is seriously being neglected. I can't play with him the way I used to. It pretty much sucks.

So YAY you with no morning sickness. You are VERY lucky! LOL! I'll gladly give you some of mine- the heartburn too!

Maybe you will be one of the lucky ones and never have to deal with morning sickness!

I have been feeling somewhat normal the last couple days. Starting at 6weeks I had the worst ms and couldn't really eat anything at all. As soon as I hit 9weeks it just went away. I'm not getting my hopes up though.. I've read when it just goes away it sometimes comes back even worse. I sure hope not! I do feel my energy starting to return as well. This pregnancy feels like it's flying by!

I have to tell you Mari, I have been less sick with this pregnancy than I was with my other 3, including when I had T. If I didn't have my ultrasounds and my doppler to reassure me, I would be scared to death too because I have barely been sick at all. Now at 11 weeks, I actually feel pretty great, not sick, not tired, just happy and energetic. So hopefully you and I are just two very lucky ladies that managed to cruise blissfully vomit free through the first tri....Of course, there is still time for you....bahahahahaha.....:D

I was just thinking this morning that I'm going to buy a doppler like, post haste. Alissa - are you still using yours and getting good results? OMG you are 11 weeks pregnant!! YAY!

Anyway, point here is - except for morning sickness, which I have more than my fair share of and sore boobies, I don't really "feel" pregnant. I guess, even though the u/s showed everything good I'm not *thinking* I'm pregnant either. I stopped smoking and drinking (I wasn't a drunk, but I did partake in the occasional mixed drink), but I'm not showing, my Zofran keeps my morning sickness at bay (USUALLY) and ...I would really love this pregnancy to become "real", but.. I don't think I'm ever going to think it's "real" because I'm scared I'll jinx myself if I think happy thoughts.

Sounds like a crazy lady talking! Haha.

So far so good. I haven't had any M/S *knock on wood*. My cramps and boob pains are dying down and I haven't had any spotting for over a week. I am tired though and sleepy through out the day and if I don't eat regularly I do get nauseous :S I haven't gained any weight either...I'm hoping to not gain so much with this pregnancy. I gained 60lbs with my first!! :S

Yes, I only use mine every couple of days, but I have gotten good at recognizing the h/b (plus I'm sure it's just easier now that the baby is bigger...)

You're almost 11 weeks yourself, lady!

I have been pretty nauseous for the last couple of weeks-I never actually throw up but am nauseous pretty much all day long and it is very hard to eat because I have to figure out what I can eat that won't make me gag and I am too tired and nauseous to really cook so I am eating lots of fast food and easy stuff like cereal and crackers. I have to eat often too or its even worse. I actually feel a little better today-don't know if its a temporary thing or if the worst is passing but I hope the end is near. With my dd, I had very little m/s and it was milder when I did have it. I worried a lot more with that pregnancy though since I wasn't having the symptoms. I haven't decided which is worse, m/s or worrying.

I'm tired, have nausea, sore boobs like whoa, I'm irritable, my face is continually breaking out and I'm averaging about 1 migriane per week. However I feel less blaoted than I did a couple of weeks ago, so of course that worries me. I wonder if all the puking reduces the bloat? I haven't gained any weight either.

I'm also eating quick and easy meals because of the tiredness and lack of interest in meal prep. If I spend too much time thinking about food it makes me sick. I'm hoping this is the M/S peak and it starts to ease up in the next couple of weeks.

Of course I went 3 days last week without puking and I was super worried...so I know how you feel Mari.

Haha - just like you, I hate the m/s but when it disappeared a few weeks ago for a couple hours in the morning for 2 days, I freaked out. No worries though, it came right back. Worse than before.

I can button my pants again. That *had* worried me, but since I've been to the doc and I could button them then too, I'm not as concerned. I know I've lost 20 lbs since the beginning of pregnancy because of the m/s, so that might be attributing to it the not-so-bloated feeling. Plus, I'm trying to drink other things than soda and I think with the water, it's just getting peed back out rather quickly..lol

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! Smile

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.

You should definitely ask! It makes a HUGE difference for me, I don't think I could live without it now. Wink Hope you start feeling better soon!

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!
