How are you all doing?
I had a rough week last week, but am having a good day so far . No m/s and the fatigue isn't too bad .
Updates ladies !
My gastrointestinal stuff has been gone for 2.5 days now, so I'm feeling GREAT about that. It was really dragging me down. I started in with sinus issues on Saturday so I had to close the windows and turn on the AC. I am sad for the lost savings, but happy that my head has been feeling better since I made that call.
I have an appointment today, so I'm excited to hear the heartbeat!
Wow, you're almost 15wks !!
Im in that odd place where my nausea is mainly gone and i dont feel baby yet, so i forget im pregnant and worry constantly if anybody is in there, my thyroid has gone nuts and now im hyperthyroid and so although im exhausted i cant calm down to rest at night...its been wonderfully warm out 70-80 degrees and blue skies the kids and i have been outdoors all week and dh and i bought a new jungle gym swing set we hope to put up soon, dh has been at work and school so much i havent been able to get help with things around the house so i nearly mowed our lawn myself today then i looked down and remembered all in all a blessed week and hoping little bubbs starts thumping soon!
I'm sorry about your thyroid ...are they testing you frequently? Is it from being over-medicated? My last TSH was 1.35 and my dr bumped my meds up to 175mcg/d a week ago to stave off any issues in the 2nd tri...I felt a little jittery for a few days, but feeling more stable now. They're testing my TSH again in 5wks. This is the highest dose I've ever been on by far so I was nervous about the increase, but I appreciate they're keeping such a close watch. I hope it evens out for you soon...I hate being hyperT, ugh, it's the worst !!!
When is your next appt?
The vomiting has decreased....the nausea hasn't....still losing weight, and as of today...they are considering me a gestational diabetic since I can't seem to do the 3 hour glucose intolerance testing....
Irritable at times...but there is usually something that triggers it...lol
Will update more after my initial diabetic referral....
Looking forward to hearing what you find out at your referral
Physically I am great! No m/s or other significant symptoms. Not one tiny little drop of spotting since my AF 9w2d ago!!! I have really turned a corner since a couple days and I am emotionally feeling better! Spotting is my ultimate enemy, so I'm truly feeling this is a good sign for me.
I have even been afraid of sex.... Thinking it might cause irritation and freak me out with spotting, but even that hasn't happened!!
But question!?!?!?!??? Does anyone else sometimes feel like this instinctive protectiveness to not have sex? Like I get frustrated with DH when he suggests it! Idk why!!! We'll, I do. I think it's hormones.

I've turned the corner on the morning sickness. Thankfully. After 8 straight weeks of nausea and vomiting I'm so thankful to have had at least three days in a row where I felt great. I didn't even get nauseous after dinner the past few nights. And my appetite has picked up a bit.ocassionally I actually feel hungry and want to eat. Yay. Also I have only had to nap every few days. Not every day. Which is so nice. A little more energy.
But with the good news comes a new symptom. Headaches. They just started. I think its sinus related though. But I honestly have no patience for the kids loud voices. Poor guys. They think mommy has turned into a Grinch.
I get to hear the heartbeat and meet with my midwife next week. Hopefully everything is good. Im nervous she won't be able to find anything.
On the subject of sex...I have had to force myself to DTD. But every time I do the o is amazing. But I just don't feel like it. I don't feel sexy. I don't even want to be kissed for long. The extra mucus and stuff I gag on. But if I can relax and just focus we have fun. A lot is my attitude. But still sometimes it feels more like a chore.
Ahahahha, its so funny..... I always think, how the heck did we get pregnant! TTC is soooooo different than being pregnant in sex lives! if us women always felt this way about sex, there would be a lot less babies....how boring!
Okay ladies...probably going to jinx myself here, lol, but dare I say I feel NORMAL today, like honestly and truly normal ! I woke up with m/s and almost immediately took zofran but figured I'd wait until after breakfast and I've felt fine since then! Haha, of course I immediately pulled out my doppler to check on baby . I'm not going to say I've turned a corner, but I'm thankful to be having a good day !
I'm feeling great pregnancy wise. I'm pooped from working 12 hours yesterday, getting off at midnight and being back into work again this morning at 9:30. Needless to say, I will be in bed very early tonight. My cramps are much better today. I haven't even had to take any Tylenol, which is saying a lot for me.
Kelly, yay for a great day!
Cindy, ugh work! I hope you are already in bed and resting!
Afm- feeling good, but I'm cranky. I really need to kick this attitude. My kids are feeling it and it is totally not fair.... I feel like my fuse is so short.
hello!! just checking in.............
9 weeks today !!!! Feeling pretty good although exhausted! Im constantly tired and could honestly sleep all day if I were allowed. Other than that symptoms are here and there. Got another scan at 11 weeks. Saw scan last week and peanut has grown so much and at 8 weeks measured 8.4 weeks. I take that as a good sign.
Thank you Kelly and Brittany!!
Kelly, Im glad things are going well for you too- sounds like one hell of a rollercoster you on. Prayers and love to you!
Brittany- I know what you mean about the moods! Screamed at my poor little 4 year old this morning for not eating her breakfast.......its not fair on her at all. cried the whole way to work. Working mothers guilt is the worst thing coupled with pregnancy hormones and its just a disaster!
