Ah ha. Here comes the terror.
In the middle of the night, last night, I had a bunch of acid go into my throat, so I had to get up and eat 4 TUMS. Then I wake up with upset tummy.
All morning I have had nausea. I'm starting to get the dizzies, as well. So tired.
Dude, i'm so pregnant.
This is just the beginning.

The other thing I wanted to mention in this post is that i'm starting to have a lot of anxiety. I am fearing m/c or any other complications with my little bean. I had the same anxiety with my first pregnancy, and I was hoping to avoid it (at least a little) with this one.
But every day I become more and more attached to this little guy/gal that I feel more protective and helpless. (helpless because all of this is a natural process. It's not like I can check in on the bean every 15 minutes to make sure all is well!)
I got lab work done this morning to check my HCG levels.
I'll let you all know how that goes!

I know what you mean about starting to feel pregnant and the anxiety. I have had anxiety since day one with this little one, since I have had on and off spotting. I didn't have it with DD. But you're right, it is out of our hands. We are helpless about it. I trust in the Lord to take care of baby and that gives me some comfort.

And yeah, soooooo tired lately. The nausea is hit or miss. I haven't had heartburn yet. For me that didn't happen until the 3rd trimester last time. I hope it stays away!

Same here...haven't experienced heartburn except in my 3rd trimester of my last pregnancy but definitely feeling anxious. When I get cramps I'm scared it's a sign of an impending miscarriage. When I don't get cramps I'm scared that I am going to have a miscarriage because my uterus doesn't feel like it's preparing for a baby any longer....can't win! I guess it comes with the territory

With my pregnancy with Megan I felt the same because I had just suffered a m/c 4 months before it is hard sometimes but I'm sure everything is fine with your little bean!! KUP on those beta numbers

Same here too...the minute I don't have sore bbs or feel the other symptoms I've had, I get nervous. Plus I was sick with a cold and strep this month, so i can't hlep but think maybe my egg was a little dysfunctional....

No heartburn here but nausea....and car sickness, which I never get.....it comes in waves and when I least expect it....

I've been really worried about miscarriage too My symptoms pretty much went away and that's when I started getting worried. That and because this baby was so easy to conceive and the timing was perfect I REALLY wanted to be pregnant this month. Things don't normally work out this well for me so I'm still feeling like it's too good to be true. I just try and remind myself that it's in God's hands and there is nothing I can do to stop miscarriage from happening at this stage.

It's funny because I never thought I would be one of those overly paranoid preggos. i used to hear people talk about how nervous they were and if it was safe to do this and that and I would just roll my eyes. Now I'm totally one of them

Well, good to see that I am nowhere near alone!

I got a call back from my midwife about my HCG levels. Since Thursday, she said that she would have liked the numbers to go up by 50-100%
When she called this afternoon, she said that they went from 28-86. So... tripled?
I was very excited. to say the least.

I have my first ultrasound June 7.

When did your symptoms stop? Have they come back yet? Have you had hcg tested?
I am 4 weeks and 3 days and I had symptoms for two days (13 dpo and 14 dpo) and now I don't feel pregnant at all!!! I was weak and nauseous when I waited too long to eat, had a little cramping, bloated, had slightly sore nipples and just felt pregnant!
This is my 3rd and while each pregnancy was different I always felt pregnant and had some kind of symptoms. I had blood taken Friday and will have it agian on Tuesday because Monday is a holiday.
Even if my numbers are good I will not feel better till I see and hear a heartbeat. I'm sooo worried it is all I can think about and pray about! I know it is out of my hands but it doesn't make me stop thinking about it constantly!!!
