How are you all feeling?

I am wondering how are you all doing? I am 7 weeks and I am sick. Nauseous all the time I puked 3 times and I have food aversions. I can't have coffee, beef, pickles and peppermint with chocolate. I hope this sickness doesn't last long at least to week 12.

I'm not feeling great - I get nauseous when I'm hungry...which seems to be all the time. I used to be able to eat breakfast and be satisfied till noon. Now an hour later I'm hungry again. At this rate I'm going to gain way too much weight. I get really bloated in the evening/at night and my stomach feels awful if I eat but if I don't I get nauseous.

Haven't had any major aversions yet (besides just not feeling like eating certain things). But today I'm baking a ham and that smell is driving me crazy and giving me a headache. I think it's because the smell makes me hungry and being hungry makes me feel yucky. Hopefully I'll still be able to eat it for dinner.

I definately have a mild case of prengancy sickness compared to what some people go through. I haven't thrown up yet and I actually think I'm not quite as tired this time as I was with my last pregnancy.

Nauseous and vomiting occassionally. Coffee is the first real trigger for me so far. Sick when i'm hungry, sick after I eat, sick when I move too much. Seems to get better when I eat something salty. My morning sickness in the past has lasted until 14-16 weeks. I am not looking forward to this.

just a little bit of nausea. Still lots of gas >:l

the hunger is starting up a bit now. With DS it was ridiculous, I could not stop eating and i would be starving again an hour later.

I am new to the group. I am 9 weeks and 3 days. I feel horrible. I don't mind the dry heaves and the fatigue but the dizzy spells that I get drive me crazy and make me very anxious. Does anyone else have dizzy spells, what seems to help them?

I could feel worse, but I could feel better, too! My stomach feels really queasy when I am hungry and then again like an hour after I eat. I am so tired and not feeling very motivated.

Rhall75--I get dizzy spells. I find that they get better for me if I make sure to drink enough water and if I eat more small meals instead of bigger ones (they intensify if I am hungry).

Nauseau seems to be lifting, but I am simply disinterested in food. Having aversions to meat protein, but nothing sounds good in general Sad
Bad headaches this week too

Queasiness is getting better, there were 2 weeks there where I felt terrible, and of course it was during the move and house-hunting. But I didn't throw up on the plane, which was my main concern. Between weeks 6 and 8 are always worst for me, but I still need to eat constantly to feel okay.

So I posted yesterday - and then got really sick last night. I went out to get a few groceries and was seeing spots (like I do when I'm light headed but I felt fine). By the time I got home I had a bad headache. Ended up laying down for the rest of the evening. Took a Tylonal but still had a headache half way through the night and felt like if I opened my eyes I'd throw up. I feel better this morning but I'm trying to take it easy. I can almost feel that headache trying to come back.

I've never had a problem with headaches before...Not sure if this was a migraine or if I'm getting the flu...or just a pregnancy thing.

I'm generally queasy for most of the day, but thankfully due to wearing Seabands all the time (even sleeping in them) I haven't been sick since last Wednesday.

I haven't found any foods that trigger me feeling bad, but not eating enough and being tired seem to be triggers. Talking about feeling tired, I am shattered by 8pm most days and struggle to concentrate after that. I wish I worked somewhere where I could get away with having a nap at lunchtime becasue I need one then, but there is no way I could sleep in the staffroom or my office (I share it and it is the front office that parents come to.).

Well, I thought I was doing really well but last night I slept 12 hours which means I went 12 hours without Zofran... yeah. I puked my guts out when I woke up! Sigh. I guess I still need the Zofran pretty badly!

I'm also super tired still. I mostly lay in bed all day and nap in the afternoon and then I feel pretty good for a few hours at night energy-wise. I'm guessing the energy will come back in a few weeks--right after Christmas. Bleh. I NEED ENERGY NOW!!!!

mornings are the WORST for me too. I usually feel really nauseous when I first get up and sometimes i feel like I am going to puke but it hasn't happened yet. I have no energy for anything either.

Yeah tiredness gets to me as well. The last 2 days I had a morning nap for 2 hours while DH looked after DD2. Zero energy. I cheated on the bake sale. I bought cookies instead. Still got lots to do yet with the Christmas concerts coming up.

I need to add constipated. I'm to the point of crying in pain right now. I battle this anyway so the hormones and the squishing of the intensities musts makes it all the worse.

I have had nausea every day since week 5. I am at week 9 now. I generally have nausea throughout pregnancy. I used to call it morning, noon and night sickness because it comes and goes in waves throughout the day. I've discovered that sipping on ice water helps. I have a box of cheese nips by the bed, and sometimes nibbling on a few of those helps too. I have aversions that come and go. I generally only eat what doesn't make me gag to think about it at any given time.

I'm also very, very tired. By the time dinner rolls around, if I haven't had a nap, I'm exhausted. My older kids have heard, "Mom's not feeling well, she needs to rest," so many times that I have a hard time believing they don't know I'm pg.

I know! My poor kids, all they hear is "Mommy doesn't feel well, so you need to be quiet so she can get some sleep." I feel so bad, I keep buying them more Christmas presents. As if Legos can make up for my lack of participation in their lives right now. Sigh. Sad the momma guilt is a terrible thing!

LOL I love it!
The last couple days I've had pretty good energy in the morning but by dinner time I'm completely wore out. And pizza sounds SOOO good to me right now that my family will be lucky to get anything else to eat for the next month.
My oldest dd is 4 and I don't think she'd connect Mommy being sick with pregnancy but I'm afraid she'll start mentioning to other people that Mommy's tired and sick a lot. Thankfully it's only a couple weeks till we're telling our families.

I'm feeling ok. Although yesterday was horrible with puking, no sleep throughout the night. I was so happy I could sleep last night! And today was a good day, no new puking, but much needed recovery!
