March Mommies how are you feeling?
Tue, 07-22-2003 - 8:30am
I am feeling pretty good for the most part. I've been tired and feeling queasy in the middle of the day but other than that I feel great! I'm starting to look fat and don't want to break out the maternity clothes for awhile, because I'm waiting to tell, until the end of August. We have an u/s scheduled for 8/19 and the little one will be 9 weeks at the time so we should see a real strong heartbeat!

Good luck to everyone and sticky babies for us all!!!

Hi Tess,

Glad things are going well for you. I am feeling pretty queasy in the mornings, and really tired in the afternoons. Waiting for the results of follow-up tests on my thyroid hormone....numbers at my first OB appt were low. I pray everything is okay. I haven't slept a full night since my BFP because I am constantly worrying about something!

I can relate to the "feeling fat." I feel like I'm huge already! With my son (baby #2 for us,) I ballooned immediately and then it seemed like I felt a little more "normal" in the second trimester. I just feel bloated right now. It's tough in the summer when it's so hot! I refuse to drag out my maternity clothes until after 12 wks!

Happy healthy 9 mos to you!

I think my due date will likely be the third week of March too! I won't know until I have an u/s (mine is scheduled for 8/19 as well!) since I am pregnant before my first AF. Anyway, I feel pretty good. Slightly naseous starting around 3 or 4 in the afternoon (low grade- kind of like car sickness...) and wanting to eat pasta all the time. My breasts are so incredibly sore that I am just trying to make sure that nothing touches them EVER! They have also grown a ton (pretty small to start with so I think it makes the difference more dramatic). They did my HCG last Thurs. and then Sat. and it went up like it should so that was a huge relief. Now I just have to wait for the u/s which is going to be a serious test of my patience and faith.

Good luck guys!

I am feeling physically okay. Maybe some ?cramping in my lower belly. When I found out, I was taken aback and cried (not completely happily) for a while. My husband was totally happy, which was good. my prob is this is my 5th pregnancy. I have two boys 4.5 and 1.5, and I miscarried before both of them right around this time (5 weeks). So now I don't want to get too excited because I am afraid I will miscarry. So I cry alot. I have an OB appt. on the 8th of August and probably will have an u/s that day. (they did that with the last pregnancies to see if there was normal development) Is this your first child? Thanks for posting here and I will write again if you are around. Good luck babies are totally awesome.

I just want to say congratulations and I wish you all a H&H 9 months. This is my first child, though I had a m/c in Jan. 03 at 9 wks. I am approaching 9 wks. in a matter of 4 days, and I am so nervous. I just want to make it safely to the second trimester, and then I will feel a whole lot better about this pregnancy. It is definitely a waiting game. I am proud to say that I did get to see my baby's heartbeat at 6wks. 2days, and it was beautiful. I will be keeping you all in my prayers, and I hope to hear from you all soon. Again, congratulations, and I wish you the best.

I know how hard it is to not get excited about all this. I'm trying to keep myself under control, but it's hard. I want to tell everyone, but can't. I want that innocence back from my other pg. when I didn't know how it was to m/c. I have 1dd -8 2ds 6 & 4 (These pg were all uneventful) and One angel 12/02. I'm anxiously counting the days (26) until my u/s.

Hugs and good luck to you! I'm glad we are able to talk and understand what we are all going thru.

Hey, everyone! I am actually feeling pretty good- not nearly as tired as my last preg which ended in M/C in April. I am very nervous. I just want this 1st trimester to be OVER so I won't be such a nervous nellie! Here's to happy and healthy pregnancies for all of us!

I am feeling nauseous. This is a first for me. With my three other pregnancies I maybe felt nauseous twice. This one is very different. I feel icky quite a bit and also very tired. I have the sore booby thing going too. But hey if that means that the baby is doing well, then just bring it on. I am due on 3/10. We had an ultrasound done on 7/29 after having some bleeding. We saw and heard the heartbeat. It was very encouraging (But I am still scared). Good luck to everyone and lost of baby dust!!!!

Since you asked, I must be honest in saying how nervous I am right now. I am waiting for my blood results which I will get tomorrow a.m. After two m/c in May '02 and Aug '02 I began seeing an infertility specialist. After an unsuccessful cyle with Clomid, several failed IUI procedures and a failed IVF procedure, I decided to go back to basics. After 3 attempts using the old fashioned method, I am now 5 wks and 5 days into this pregnancy and, needless to say, anxiously awaiting those results! Luckily, I have my beautiful 2 1/2 year old son to take my mind off it many times. And it is comforting to know that there are so many who share this anxiety. I wish you all the best of luck.

Hi there, I've got the nausea like most people, I definitely felt the absolute worst while traveling two weeks ago, when I got two days worth of horrible headache. I have a dr.s appt. today, I'm so nervous I'm going crazy. I m/c in April at 14 wks. This is so hard!
