Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Super nauseous this morning with a migraine and a case of vertigo on top of it. Welcome to the first trimester. I've been reading but haven't had time to do personals.

With Charlene I had 1-2 migraines a week during my first trimester and then sporadically throughout the rest of my pregnancy. I've always suffered from them but pregnancy ones just take it out of me.

I ate a good breakfast and I'm working on some more water. Ugh...Kevin made me spend the morning in bed and then he took the babies out shopping -- which is where they are now.

Alice, I've had some sudden rage too. Hoping that doesn't last too long.

Oh, and I too have already had some crazy RLP. Can't believe all of this is coming on so soon. I'm just 4w5d today.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Yeah, the migraines! I randomly had an ocular migraine the day before my bfp, so I'm wondering if it's related to being pregnant. I do get them on occasion, but usually once a year or so. I'm interested to see if I get any more, since I did some reading and found that it is common to have pregnancy-induced ocular migraines. At least the headache that goes along with them is pretty mild--but I do end up pretty dizzy for the rest of the day.

This one is hot off the presses:



DH asked if he could take a PT just for shiggles. He says, "wouldn't it be weird if it was positive?" Yes, hunny, it would....

You're welcome mama.

But maybe it will make this pregnancy feel more real, I guess. Just makes you sad to wake up so early on SATURDAY of all days.

We're telling the families today...we have a birthday party for my niece in the morning, and we'll tell DH's family there. We just wrote in her card "from Uncle A, Aunt E, E. and baby #2". They're the kind that like to read all cards out loud, so we thought that would be fun. Then this evening we're going to stop by my parents and just send E. running in with her "big sister" shirt on and see how long it takes them to notice. (You know you've been ttc for a while when you buy your youngest a big sister shirt like 8 months before you actually conceive - I was getting worried it wouldn't fit her in time, but luckily I bought it big and she grows slow, so it's just right! ) Hope you all have great weekends!
Yey! Good luck with the announcements!

of that makes me explode. I skipped girls night bc I was too scared to be away from my husband. I just dont know how to control it. I think Im going to do a first tri us afterall. Im far too freaked out to wait. And its so nice to have someone understand. Dh was like you've taken 7 hpts and 1 lab test and they all say your pregnant now relax. He's was verging on getting really angry but he realized even if its ridiculous, I'm scared out of my mind. Gah. I sooo wish i was one of those women that get a + hpt and just are like yay and never doubt it for a minute.
If I were you I would have had an US last week. ((hugs))
I'm definitely nervous- and I have moments where I convince myself I've lost this bean too.... BUT I have 3 successful pregnancies to calm me. You aren't being ridiculous at all. Go get an US, I think you'll feel a ton better once you can see that beautiful HB and officially put your MC chances below 5% (or is it 1% after HB? Someone correct me). ((hugs))

Okay, new forum rule. No bragging about deliciousness unless you are prepared to share.
I am literally salivating thinking about this.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

I think last week woulda been too early for an u/s. I'll call monday but I have to see an ob first for the script and then make the u/s appt. I bet the earliest I can get in for an u/s will be next next week... 9+ days from now and about 7.5 weeks. I just want to make it to Monday. I hate the weekends right now. I feel so helpless on the weekends. I don't even have a number to call if something is up. It worries me.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Ok ladies, I don't mean to be all drama, but i'm having a really hard time accepting this preg. I wanted it so bad, and I love the thought of it....don't get me wrong. I'm SOOOO thankful! But the problem is I just can't get past seeing it as a thought and not real. I just keep expecting it will end. I'm trying my hardest to accept that it will last, but having had 2 losses since the Summer, that's hard to wrap my head around. I know I'm probably sounding crazy. I just think I have way too many gaurds up and I"m driving myself insane not being able to connect with the preg and everything b/c I'm so fearful. I SO SO SO want this, and I know if I "connect" it won't make a m/c harder. In fact, not connecting will prob make a m/c harder, so I really want to get over it, but I just don't know how to! Seriously, I'm going nuts! I'm trying really hard.....nothing just seems to work. I sure hope you guys don't think I'm crazy.

On another subject, all your obvious preg symptoms sound great.....I mean, sorry you are all suffering, but yay for signs of good snuggly beans. Does anyone NOT have to pee constantly, and NOT have tons of preg discharge? I'm only 4 ish weeks, so I don't expect to have the sickies yet, but I usually have to pee constantly and have lots of discharge by now, and I have neither. Am I the only one?

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Jenny I totally understand. Even though I only experienced one lose, we seem to be on the exact same page. It's almost like a personality thing. I want this more than anything in the world. Yet I'm completely disconnected. I don't believe even when I know it if that makes sense. And my pessimism is horrific. I won't even say here the thoughts that have popped into my head. I practically treat it like I'm not pregnant. One ironic thing I noticed is when I'm in an optimistic mood, I have way more symptoms. And when I'm in a pessimistic mood, I have almost nothing. I honestly I remain convinced that 50% of early pregnancy symptoms are IPS. I bet if you had less doubts about this pregnancy, you'd have more symptoms. It sounds crazy but our minds are incredibly powerful. I've dealt with psychosomatic issues and it's actually scary the self-sabotage our brains are capable of.

So in short, no youre not the only one. I don't really have symptoms at 6 weeks. I'm tired and thats the about it except on occasion (normally in my optimistic mode), I'll have other symptoms. Go figure.

Re: Weekly Chat: 2/6- 2/12

Jenny, I feel so bad that you're getting so stressed out. You've definitely been through a lot, and having a hard time dealing with this right now is okay. You can't make yourself feel different, so don't try to force it right now. Just do your best to stay positive, but if you're in a crummy mood, it's okay to embrace that, too. You're only a month along, with barely any symptoms, so it is completely understandable to not be completely "connecting" with the pregnancy yet. The first weeks and months are so weird--you know you're pregnant, but there's no belly, no kicking. It's hard to feel real. Plus, many (if not most/all) of us are dealing with serious (and normal) fears of m/c. It's scary to commit when you know it might not work out perfectly. But this is why we're all here: to help each other out when the hormones and nerves get to be too much.
