Hi ladies Just wanted to touch base and see why other symptoms we are experiencing ? I'm 5wks4days and most just feel like I've lost my brain and just hungry & thirsty all the time, so as I told hubby I'm eating while I can still eat!  How are you all going ?

I'm now 7w+2d (by my own calculations) I have had nausea (usually in the afternoon/at night). I find if I have some lollies, or a drink of juice etc, about 10 mins later I am a lot better. Still getting cramps here and there, but not as much, and my boobs are slightly less sore now (though still huge). I've been a bit emotional the last couple of days aswell.

Hi everyone

I *think* that I'm 5 wks and 3 days so symptoms generally still quite slight: sore bbs on and off, a little bigger (so DP tells me wink.gif ), tiredness definitely - cant keep my eyes open beyond 8pm (I know I'm going to miss the Downton finale tonight!!). A couple of waves of nausea - that usually kicks in for me around week 6/7 and in the afternoon and evening. Biggest surprise 'symptom': waking up early (6am) beacause i'm starving! AND then eating a big breakfast - so unusual for me; usually a night owl pottering around at midnight and not a morning person at all ... (A new kind of 'morning sickness' for me  biggrin.gif )

Wonders will never cease original.gif

Good luck to everyone!

Does anyone else generally just feel like crap? I can't put my finger on it but today i just feel like crawling into a hole.

And to make matters worse the dishwasher just gave up and melted my Tupperware and now I need to wash my mountain of dishes by hand.  Vent over. Lol

Yes Alecia! I know what you're talking about! Sometimes I just feel really average!!

Up until Friday I just had sore boobs, reduced appetite and increased CM, but from Friday (5w4d) I've just started feeling really average on and off. This morning when I woke up I felt really quite cr*p. Oh and the peeing! I'm peeing ALL the time!!

Loo mumsy2b! The peeing is exhausting on its own. I took a couple of panadols and feel SO much better than I did earlier. Now to tackle the mountain of dishes that have accumulated sad.gif

Hi ladies, I have been quite bloated recently....in fact a close friend of mine just asked today if I had any good news to share! Other than that...had a nose bleed today n I never get them except for when I am pregnant. Also quite tired the last few days but that could be because I am falling sick as well. Anyway have a good Monday everyone!

#11 MandeePandee

Fridayschild, I am the same as soon as it hits 9pm I can barely stay awake and then up bright and early , super thirsty , hungry and needing to pee.
Other than eating like crazy just been exhusted easily and a little bit of ligament pain.
Lindt , you just reminded me last time I was pregnant I got my first ever nose bleed - completely freaked me out . Hopefully doesn't happen this time but at least I know it's normal !!

Started getting indigestion this afternoon. DAMN it was/is painful! Hope it doesn't persist throughout the entire pregnancy sad.gif For anyone else who gets it apparently Rennie is safe to take, but not so much Mylanta (DH went and bought it for me and checked with the Chemist). A glass of milk also helped while I was waiting for DH with the Rennie!

I am 7w+ 5d and I swing between starving hungry and nauseous. I have also had dizziness, dehydration, constipation, tiredness and really really sore boobs. I like to think of these "symptoms" as little reminders that peanut is still going along and hanging in there.

8.1 weeks today and feeling very sick , my breasts are very sore like hubby knows not to touch !  and they look like a map with blue veins,

I cannot handle the smell of meat cooking especially sausages , the meat section deli at coles or our local shops , fish smell make me feel rather sick. I never knew you could feel sick all day yet want to eat at the same time.

My iron levels have been rather low ( I have had a lap band) so they have put me on a higher dose of iron tablets as I started having bruises and feeling so tired.

I had a stuffy nose early on and sneezing and found when I sneezed it really hurt my pelvic area like ouch and yes my pelvic floor muscles are fail... I also have found my self out of breath allot my asthma has been worse.

My taste has gone weird , I taste things I do not normally taste like I wanted mushrooms but could taste dirt ( don't know how else to explain it) totally turned me off eating it , I wanted bbq chicken but could not eat it as it tasted like stuffing , and have not been able to use pepper in my cooking.

Craving steak , prawns , juice , crunchie shakes/ icecream , chocolate  and KFC . My jeans are getting tight though I have lost 2.5 kgs in last 2 weeks.

And feeling so tired , I usually wake up at 6 am but I am finding it rather hard to want to wake up or get out of bed and by lunch time i need a nap !

I got a nose bleed at 6 weeks not had one in a long time .

I started feeling movements last week , doctor said its because of my tummy tuck it feels like a flutter and does not happen often just every now and again usually when sitting down or laying.

This is my 7th pregnancy , 5th baby and never had morning sickness before and all my children have been boys so far...... I never really knew how sick you could feel its awful ! Feel pretty miserable tonight with being so sick and nothing is working .

I'm not even 6 weeks, so I wouldn't have thought I'd be feeling anything yet apart from tiredness, but I feel a bit nauseous. I have craved fresh juice every day for the last week, something I only ever have once in a blue moon and we never have juice in the fridge but I bought a 3 litre bottle yesterday to have with breakfast! I had a big cook up using the slow cooker yesterday, and touching and smelling the meat did make me gag a little too. I remember with DS I couldn't even look at chicken without wanting (and sometimes actually doing it!) to vomit!

Ha ha - I must be the baby of the group! Only 4 and 2 but have been incredibly tired and flat this week, and today was nausea later in the day. Same thing happened with last one - within a week of implanting the need for sleep was overwhelming lol.

Plus I have TOTALLY gone off chocolate and most sweet things which has happened for both prior pregnancies. I think the most frustrating thing is when I feel sick later in the day and get around to making something I want to eat, but by the time it's ready I don't want it anymore lol. Have to say though I feel a lot more prepared for the symptons to come/get worse this time round - but that might change  wink.gif

Finally starting to get my appetite back, however i can't stand the sight of meat? *hopefully this will pass as i love meat!* I'm taking vitamins to help original.gif other than that I'm fine, i do however want to sleep 24hours a day and i am crying over everything!

My nausea turned into twice-daily vomits in the last couple of weeks. I'm now 10+2. I have had sore boobs the whole time (until this morning, which is now worrying me!) and I have been really tired - as in, sleep 9 hours and still need a nap in the afternoon. Not so much moody, no food cravings per se but I can't stand the smell of raw garlic, cigarette smoke or beer (so can't go to the in-laws!).

I have had the occasional ?round ligament pain especially when I sneeze the 'wrong' way.
