2 years ago I had a blighted ovum (discovered at 10 wks). The only pregnancy symptoms I had were sore bb's and some stretching cramps when I was about 7 wks. This time, I have had exhaustion, REALLY sore bb's, stretching cramps since 4 wks, some changes in taste and smell, and mild queasiness.
Why can't I be happy with my symptoms? I feel like I should be much more sick than I am at 5.5 wks. I'm actually feeling a little better than I was . My levels at 4 wks 4 days were hcg 925, progesterone 40, which seems good, but I want to feel like crap! Of course, even if I did, I would probably think my levels were too high and the pregnancy is molar...there is just no pleasing me...lol.
Honestly, I never get sick, so maybe that's why. I haven't thrown up in 7 years (seriously...7 years). I just wish I knew everything was going to be okay....
I have the strongest stomach ever! But I have had horrible m/s with my DD and this baby. But each time it does not hit me until I am in my 6th week. It might just be too soon for you. Give it time and I am sure you will be puking by mid-month.
To make you feel better, I have not thrown up once with this pregnancy! and my baby is a very very healthy baby
and that was while taking progesterone suppositories, which is suppose to make you sicker. But I just never got sick.
No throwing up here!!! YAY!! I was thrilled I never had to and really didn't have too many other symptoms either. Yet it scared me so much b/c it was the exact same way with my first pg and I didn't want this one to end the same way.
I was just thankful that I had the ones I did. Just a little daily reminder that my little one was still growing.
I'm sure your baby is just fine, but I totally understand that you are worried. I wanted to be sick too!
With both of my dds I had HORRIBLE all day everyday nausea from week 6-13. With my m/c I wasn't sick at all, except for maybe a day or 2.
With this pg I haven't been sick either, so of course I was so worried! But I'm almost 14 weeks now and the baby is just fine. I rented a doppler and I listen to the gorgeous hb everyday.
I guess it is true when they say every pg is different. You really don't have to be sick to have a healthy baby!
I was sick with my loss. It started at about 5 weeks and didn't stop for about a week after my d and c. And with this healthy bean I've been throwing up since week 5 up until a week ago it was all day everyday. Now it's just in the morning with all day nausea and heartburn. But I work in an operating room with all sorts of fun smells so my first trimester just sucked. And I know my mom threw up all through both of her pregnancies and so did her twin sister. So I'm guessing mine is some bad genetics Throwing up doesn't equal a healthy pregnancy. Like a few people said they haven't thrown up once and have a healthy baby!!! Good luck !!!
With Abby I only got sick a handful of times. I started feeling like I was going to be sick around 10 weeks and it lasted until about 13 weeks, but I seriously only threw up very few times. I also wore sea bands to help with the sickness feeling though. I am not sure if you take vitamin b6 or not but that is supposed to help with m/s, so if you are taking that maybe you will just be one of the lucky ones and not have it. I know how reassuring it is to have those symptoms though. The way I am trying to look at this is as long as I have at least one symptom every day, then its a good thing. Sometimes it starts adding on another symptom and that gives me more relief. Like right now, gassy and tender bbs' and in the past few days I got a new one of running to the potty often. Its so funny that we pray for puking. lol
Thank you Mistyx5 for my siggy.
I'm the same way with this pregnancy but you know, I didn't have ANY symptoms with my son's pregnancy except backne. yuck. I didn't have food cravings, food adversions, tender ta-ta, not much of any of the classic symptoms and he came out just perfect
But........... if you want up-chuck dust just say that word and I'll send it your way LOL
So funny story...the day I wrote this topic I started feeling really awful in the afternoon. I thought I had just let myself get too tired, so I took a nap. When I woke up, I still felt awful...and it has been on and off since then...especially after I eat and when I get up in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Still no puking...but I'm definitely feeling crappy now. I am not even 6 wks yet, so vomiting may still come, but I am feeling much better about this pregnancy now
