I'm tired and feeling a little "off", I'm also going pee more often; but other than that, no other pregnancy symptoms yet. But, I hit 6 weeks the end of this week and most everything I read says that's about when MS will kick in.

I've been dealing with nausea and horrible exhaustion for about a week and a half. But it comes and goes so at least I get small breaks in between! Otherwise feeling great. Did a 35 mile bike race last weekend and now it's snowing here so I guess I'm done for the season. Sad LOL

U/S tomorrow Yahoo

Emotional! I nearly had a breakdown when I misread the time for my son's Tball game. It's funny now, but it was also what got me to POAS early Wink

I'm pretty ok. A wee bit more emotional and my breasts are still tender. I'm not super nauseous but I could get indigestion at any moment. The indigestion has been pretty bad and if I eat too big of a meal I feel utterly ill. So far so good. Just waiting for the sleepies to hit. Should be soon, right?

Ultrasound in 2 sleeps! I'm so excited!!!

Yeah that 6 week mark is when it starts for most women, but who knows maybe you won't have any!

Not too bad all together. Tired all the time, a bit short tempered with DS (though he has been a brat), my boobs don't hurt near as bad anymore but are HUGE (which they were already but now even more so) will need to get a new bra come payday, no M/S just not hungry much but the prenatal vitamins make me gag even though they are the gummy kind. Tummy is starting to protrude, gave up on my regular jeans (which didn't have a lot of growing room anyhow). Lots of round ligament pains.

And it is hot as heck in this apartment. For the end of October you would think it would be cooler out, but even with the sliding door and windows open it is 84 degrees in here, it is 77 outside right now but we aren't getting much draft going through. Which is making me more tired and irritable. But I refuse to turn on the AC this late in the year.

Mostly exhausted, having to pee, and feeling homicidal, but other than that completely normal!

I'm okay. Nauseous and exhausted a lot but also managing a little better today. I saw my midwife today too and she really lifted my spirits. Love her!! Biggrin Hopefully I should hear soon when my ultrasound will be.

A bit more tired than usual, but nothing severe. A bit of nausea comes and goes, but nothing horrible. Some foods (usually sweet stuff) just doesn't sound good. Smells... smelling way more than usual and it's not good! Oh, and HUNGRY!! That just started kicking in yesterday. I usually gain about 15 pounds in the first tri, so here it comes!! Smile

That's wonderful that you have such a great relationship with your MW!

I have been beyond exhausted! The most tired I have ever been and that includes my other pregnancies and having a newborn. It's ridiculous! Other than that a little bit of nausea that comes and goes. Boobs are a little tender and super smell here too.

DH asked me how I was feeling earlier tonight. I told him pretty good, so good it scares me. Sad I do have symptoms though...still light nausea at times, really tired although I haven't been getting to bed early enough, and sometimes my head just doesn't feel right almost lightheaded with a slight headache, I have to pee a lot too. I keep trying to remind myself that I know with DS2 I had a period of feeling pretty good before the real nausea kicked in and I'm only just over 5 weeks. I usuallly have it so bad with my pregnancies, so I can't imagine not getting. Although that would be a blessing, even though I would be super nervous until I hit the second tri.

I've been really tired but not every day. Nausea comes and goes during the day but isn't too terrible. A couple days ago the extreme hunger kicked in!

Some days I feel almost normal. Some days I am really moody. I do get naseauous, I haven't been sick though. I am tired everyday. Cramping has pretty much stopped. A couple of days ago, I moved too quickly and had a huge cramp, that is the last time I have had a cramp though. I pee a lot, drink a lot. So pretty normal. I can't belive I am almost 8 1/2 weeks! Not long and I will be in the double digits!

queezy, emotional, breast hurt, had severe cramping the other night only to be followed by 2 solid hours of farting! Funny, all these symptoms and the only ones I had with previous pregnancies was a lot of puking (never passing gas for 2 hours, and I mean REALLY passing gas!). Oh, and I am still spotting like every other time I go to the bathroom on the tp. Sometimes, red! I was supposed to get the results of my hcg Tuesday, but they didn't call back. Hoping for good news today.

I hear ya on the gas Susan. I've had bag gas for weeks. SO much and SO loud!

Sorry to hear about the spotting. Hopefully it's just implantation.

So I think I'm letting my tummy get too empty in the evening. Last night when I felt gross I had a pickle...and then I didn't feel so gross. I remember when I was pg with dd I had to keep something in my tummy all the time or it would get all weird. Hummm...
