Symptom update

Just a quick symptom update for posterity:

All day sickness is an every day occurrence, but thankfully I'm just nauseous, I don't actually get sick. The smell of coffee (and certain other things) makes me sick, but if I don't have a cup (half decaf, which is what I always drink) I turn into a zombie by 10 am. I've found that the smell is the worst, but drinking the actual coffee is still okay. Same with some other foods. The smells make me nauseous, but when I'm actually eating them, they taste okay or even good.

Boobs are still super tender. Tired all the time.

Because of all this nausea, I've lost 3 pounds in the past couple of weeks. I know you shouldn't lose weight when you're pregnant, but I lost 5 pounds in the first trimester with D because of the all day sickness. Anything about this pregnancy that reminds me of the that pregnancy makes me really happy.

I'm still nervous every day. Today, I had some discomfort in my abdominal region, (which was not cramping) but anything that could "almost be cramping" sends me to places where I don't want my mind to go. I have to keep reminding myself that my bad track record does NOT mean that this pregnancy will turn out badly. That's the hardest part.

Anything that reminds you of your pregnancy with D is a good thing! I'm glad you haven't thrown up. I've lost count of how many times I have this week...but I am still happy to be puking!

Nausea is your friend.

So happy to hear things are pregressing and to make it that little better, your verification word today is 'mammy' - ok it's not spelt right but I couldn't ignore it!

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm glad the symptoms are coming along (and that they aren't too miserable). I think this is the one. I really do.

Yay for having symptoms! I know how much nausea can suck, but at the same time you are so grateful for it. With my son I was sick all day, especially at night, and lost 5-7 lbs the first tri but he was 2 wks overdue and over 8 lbs!

With this pregnancy I am not as sick, but I have nausea all day and actual puking every 2-3 days and have lost 2 lbs.

I think this little bean of yours wants to stick around !
