Nervous mom to be.

If you are having morning sickness, that is a good sign! I know it is nerve wracking but try not to worry about it because stress is not good. I think I went to the doctor like 5 times while I was pregnant because I couldn’t get her to move in the whole day! She was fine- just sleeping. 🙂 So it is normal to be nervous,

Don’t worry, I’m 7 weeks too.  My sickness really comes and goes depending on the day.  I think a lot of it has to do with your body getting used to the hormone changes.  I’m sure your baby is fine.  If not, there’s nothing you could have done.  You’re young and resilient and will have ample years to gestate joy.  Worrying about it, while tempting, won’t help.  The real signs of miscarriage are more the cramping and bleeding, so a lack of sickness shouldn’t be concerning.

@eecuadrado:  I didn’t have any morning sickness and hardly any nausea after week 7. Sometimes I would pray to be nauseous and puke, just so I’d have confirmation that I was still pregnant. Every cramp that had me doubled over scared the crap out of me too. The only thing that kept me positive was the fact that my boobs hurt and I was tired.

It’s been quite a few weeks since my u/s, and I don’t go in until Friday, and the only symptoms I have had is headaches and dizziness (which could be anything because I have a vitamin D deficiency that causes those symptoms), and I have cramping, which supposedly is normal. Also, just some slight TMI, I saw some white shit on my nipple and freaked out. Apparently I am already producing colostrum? The body does some weird, messed up crap, let me tell you.

Make sure to get some pregnancy books and educate yourself on what is normal at this stage and what isn’t. It truly is a waiting game until you get your u/s. Some women opt to get a fetal doppler, but I, personally, would suggest staying away from that if you are a nervous Nelly like me because in the event you can’t find the heart beat (and some doctors even can’t, even after you are supposed to), you will drive yourself nuts.

You are probably going to feel scared late in the game when you have felt baby kick a few times, and you haven’t had movement in weeks. Things like this are normal, and I know it is had to relax, but stress will do no good on your ever increasing heart rate, your fading deep sleep, or anxiety levels. Stress is probably worse for the baby than anything. At this point, just be concerned with eating properly, walking, and resting. 🙂

@eecuadrado:  Haha. Glad I could make you giggle. You body seriously does do some weird stuff. I swear Google, the Bee, and other forums have answer so many questions I have had.

We aren’t hoping for one over the other actually, so we have no gender preference. I think I, personally, would have an easier time raising a boy (and a boy would allow DH to be the father to a son that his dad wasn’t to him), but to have the bond with a daughter like my mom and I had would be something real special. We will be happy either way, but we do plan on finding out, so I will know in about 8 weeks I guess!

Tired and nauseous definitely described me during the first trimester. I would practically fall alseep at my desk at work. Hopefully, you’ll feel better in the 2nd trimester.

I was really anxious throughout my entire first trimester! I had no morning sickness whatsoever (a random aversion here and there that would remind me–but that’s it). However baby made it through that time and I’m almost 35 weeks. It may be hard, but try to count your blessings that you aren’t sick 24/7!
