Along with spraguebride , I too am newly pregnant and have lots of questions since I don’t really feel like I can ask anyone else I know since we are keeping this quiet. Plus, I wanted a range of answers. So, here are my questions (really more first trimester questions):
How soon were you able to see a doctor? I called the obgyn my family practice doctor recommended and they won’t see me until 9 weeks, and that’s just for lab work/medical history. My physical exam won’t be until 11 weeks, or 4 weeks from today.
Was morning sickness (if you had it) pretty constant, or did it come and go? I felt really nauseated almost constantly for 3 days last week, but I haven’t really felt much yesterday or the day before. Am I out of the woods then, or will it go away and come back?
Do you feel the need to constantly take pregnancy tests? This might sound crazy, but I kind of want to take one everyday. I just feel like I need that constant reassurance that I am still pregnant.
If you decided not to tell people right away, was it hard to keep it quiet?
Did you have cramps? I get back cramps when I have my period, and I’ve probably had similar cramps at least once every day for the last 2 weeks. They’re not super painful, but they are uncomfortable.
Were your prenatal vitamins prescribed (or recommended) by your doctor, or did you pick them out on your own? And what do you use?
And finally, what is your take on pain medications and soda? From what I understand, tylenol is okay, aspirin/advil is not, although I’ve avoided all because I’m not sure, and pop is okay in moderation, but I’ve been afraid to drink that too.
