Okay so morning sickness did start this week and I am finding myself on a low carb diet naturally. haha I am CRAVING brothy soups and it seems to be the only thing I can keep down between yesterday and today. I made home made vegie beef soup on Saturday and last night I made homemade french onion soup. The only othe rthing I am managing to keep down is milk or string cheese. Side note: vomiting at work is totally not cool. Exactly how am I supposed to keep this quiet when I am pukin in the bathroom?

Oh you poor little thing. You are doing the absolute right thing with the soups though. I read homemade bone broths with all the natural gelatin and collagen really helps morning sickness so I have been having LOTS of soup and broth too. I have also been LOVING on cheese lately and ate like an entire Little Caesar’s pizza over 3-4 days last week. At least everything you are having is nutrient dense so you’re getting enough calories.
So sorry you are feeling queasy. Can you take some Altoids or sip on some ginger tea? I hear warm ginger tea is good for nausea. I’ve been drinking a lot of water, both because I’m thirsty, but another because I hear dehydration can make MS symptoms worse.
I am feeling a little off this afternoon. It feels almost like I have a lowgrade sinus headache – its all in the front of my face. Perhaps the chicken curry I had for lunch isn’t sitting well. (Popping another Tums). Feeling really fatigued today and its slow at work, so it makes me want to just home and lay in bed.
On another note: Has anyone bought anything for the LO yet? I can’t bring myself to buy anything, even though I look at stuff every single day. First of all, its just so overwhelming! Secondly, I just feel like its so premature until I get to see my OB.
I don’t know why, but I’ve been having some hunches about the gender lately. Anyone else have a feeling? I kinda feel like it might be a girl – my eyes keep gravitating to the girly stuff, and I always thought I wanted a boy first.

I think i’m due in July (that is if i’m really preggo)..but all symptoms points to a july baby..
I don’t quite get the lingo on this board..first time at this..but maybe I’ll pick up a few things..We were half planning to conceived..we tried it a few days after our wedding day and voila..a month later i’m having a tough time keeping food down. The soreness on my back is driving me nuts and i’m definitely on a fruit diet for the last two days. Glad i’m not the only one having some rough days.

Today was a much better day than yesterday regarding nausea and while I’m tired, I’m not wiped out. I had the worst headache last night, and have been having cold symptoms but no cold. And stuff just tastes weird.
I haven’t bought anything either, but I do look all the time. And I too feel like it’s a girl. I’m not sure why, but girl immediately popped into my head. I hope we’re right. 🙂

Well the morning sickness (that is so NOT just in the morning) has come one full force. I feel aweful. I am not throwing up, which I am trying to appreciate, but half of me wonders if I would feel better if I actually did throw up? Right now I feel like I am in the constant state of having the flu. I am completely exhausted, and even opening the refrigerator is making me gag. My DH has been great, he keeps encouraging me to eat, and trys to be helpful in any way he can. I caught him looking sadly at me today, and I said, “what’s wrong?” His reponse, “I just feel so badly that I can’t help make you feel better.” Sweet man.
My emotions are all over the place this week. I am traveling out of state over the next two days, and I really dont want to be traveling alone. I am nervous something will happen while I am stranded miles away from home and DH. DH confided in me tonight that he isn’t overly thrilled with the idea of me going either. Unfortunately, this is part of my job, and it requires that I travel each month. I am going to talk to the Dr. about it on Friday, and see what he says about when I should tell work I have to stop the air travel. I am SO excited to finally go see the doctor on Friday, but part of me is is very nervous. I am keeping every finger and toe crossed that everything looks OK.
Haven’t bought any LO stuff yet, but I have definitely found myself tempted. I think I might *try* to hold out until Christmas, when we are 13 weeks, before I buy anything. Thinking of all you ladies and hope everyone is feeling well!

I hear you! I have been exhausted and nauseous for the past few days. It just came on like a freight train this week. I am a nanny part time and have an office job part time so all the running around is not helping. Yesterday I had to take a nap on the couch while the little boy I watch slept 🙂
I had a presentation at work today and was so worried I was going to have a “knocked up” moment and have to run out mid powerpoint to get sick. That would not have been the best way to keep things under wraps. Luckily I made it through!

hello ladies I just found out the good news BFP for me! I am so happy to finally be joining you guys. It has been a long 7 months since my mc, but I am happy to be here with you all. I will be 4 weeks tomorrow 🙂 I mostly feel tired and can’t stop burping and having on and off heartburn/indegestion. I am calling tomorrow to make my first appt. I do have a question for you ladies, my DD had almost the exact due date I will be having this time around and so their birthdays will be close together do you think either of them will feel badly towards that down the road? By the way the summer is a great time to be pg bc dresses are so comfy to just throw on 🙂
Post # 129
first congrats!!!!! secondly, don think their birthdays being close is a big deal. My brothers birthdays are close together and it never bothered them. As long as they didn’t have to share a gift they were fine. LOL
OK so I know some of us have US appointments next week?!?!? How are we feeling? is the DH planning to go with you?
Post # 130
aaaahhhh!!!!! July 26th is supossedly when i’m due!!! just got my BFP this morning!
Post # 131
Congrats!! My son’s birthday is 8/9 and my EDD is somewhere around 7/27 so chances are their birthday’s will be within 2 weeks if not closer. I’m not worried about it. I was actually looking forward to joint celebrations and being about to get professional yearly photos and only paying 1 sitting fee!!! 🙂
Congrats as well! Our due dates are either the same or really close!
Post # 132
Congrats to shelly and mssweets! I congratulated you on the TWW board too, but I’ll do it here as well. Yay!!! Mssweets, I think the close b-days will be ok especially if you give them each their own celebration. They won’t mind sharing I’m sure!
I second Dcw6411 with feeling like I have the flu. Headaches, nausea, and omg the bathroom problems I am having lately are horrid. I’m almost starting to worry that I’m really just sick and somehow got a false positive. Am I the only crazy one thinking like that? I know it’s silly but I guess the irrational fear is setting in.
I worked out this morning in my regular body pump class and it was tough! I told my instructor so she could modify places she felt I needed to and so she knew why if I had to stop. Seriously it was such a tough class because my body is just so tired. I could only lift light weights, which is fine, because I don’t want to push it. I just want to keep my habits up. But man I was sweating horribly and could have just napped through class. lol. Has anyone else continued their regular workouts? How are you feeling?
Can I just say that I love that I can come here and share my symptoms and what is going on without people thinking I’m crazy because it’s so early. I’m so grateful for this thread!

@swtTea: @ms sweets: @shelly.mg0924:
Congrats ladies!! Welcome to the July Mommies thread! So happy to have you!
I have a crazy busy week, and the nausea and exhaustion are really setting in this week. I have things going on every single night this week after work. Friday night cannot come soon enough.
I have friends coming over for dinner tonight…. I’m making pasta and bread beacuse I think that’s the only thing I could stomach right now. I was going to make some sort of chicken or steak, but I think I’d puke and I don’t want to cause any suspision!!! The whole “pretending to drink” thing is going to be hard enough. What are you ladies doing for that?
I”m nervous about my appointment next week, because that’s when I got the bad news the first time around. But I am much much much more positive this time… more positive than I thought I’d would be. My husband is going with me. My doc does an ultrasound at that appointment. We may take 2 cars, so I can stay and get the bloodwork. At the first appointment, my doc takes vials and vials of blood (eeek!). How are you feeling? Is your husband going to go with you?
Post # 134
My first appointment isn’t until December 8 and I am dreading it and excited for it at the same time. My husband is going with me thankfully. We’re both excited about the ultrasound but I hate even getting a shot so I’m so dreading the bloodwork. I’m going to make sure I eat before I go but does anyone have any other advice? I always make sure the nurse knows I hate shots so I will definitely tell them this time so I can lay down but I’m still incredibly nervous about this.
ETA: I wanted to elaborate a little more on the hating shots part. They make me panic and I’m very worried about this, especially with a baby in me now. Getting shots, not even giving blood, makes me panic, sometimes I want to cry, sometimes I pass out (and do cry while I’m passing out), and I just can’t do anything else that day. My husband is taking the day off so he wants to take me out to lunch either before or after so that’ll be nice but still, I’m terrified.

@chrispygal- I understand where you are coming from re: working out. I typically run 4-6 miles/day 4 days/week and for the last few weeks I can barely get through 3 miles at a much slower pace than i typically run. I feel just as tired as back in college when I had mono. I am hoping that my energy levels come back up soon because the lack of working out is starting to affect my sleep now too.
Post # 136
I love this thread too!
My first appointment (and I believe my first U/S) is on Tuesday and I am counting the days. I swing back and forth from “I hope everything’s okay” to “OMG, what if its twins??” Neither DH and I have a history of twins in our family, so its totally not rational, but I just wonder what if we walk in there hoping for one healthy baby and there’s two!? That would be wild.
I am just hungry and tired today. I barely sat through a presentation today. I had to get up and go pee during a speaker, and then could barely stay awake. I have found myself feeling a little jealous of my mom, who spent most of her adult life working very, very hard, but happened to be a housewife for the first 4 years of her marriage, and subsequently was able to be at home when she was pregnant with me. The thought of being at home curled up in my bed right now makes me so annoyed to be sitting at my desk. Ugh.
I’m also having another set of hot flashes. I was SO hot last night that DH opened the window for me (and then finally shut it in the middle of the night when he couldn’t take the frigid temps anymore). I am sitting in my office practically sweating, even though I know its not hot at all and its quite chilly outside.
I don’t think I’m getting any nausea yet, but I feel like I’m constantly fighting dizziness and lightheadedness. My eyes get screwy and the last two days I’ve found myself just feeling…crappy. There’s no real way to describe it. I don’t really HURT or anything, I just feel terrible.
Oh, but speaking of nausea, one thing I simply CANNOT do anymore is brush my teeth! I am gagging loudly the entire time and my husband freaks out because he thinks I’m choking or something. Its gotten so bad that I just Listerine in the morning now because I just can’t deal with it.
And my SKIN is breaking out so terribly this last week! Its been crazy on my face, but I’ve also had zits pop up on my shoulder, on my boob, like in the weirdest places.
CONGRATULATIONS to all the new BFPs! I love how big our thread is getting!
