That is brilliant.

I'd be mad, too, even when not pregnant! He's going to have to learn real quick that when you're pregnant food is of the utmost importance! My DH has learned that when I say I need food I mean NOW. Not 15 minutes from now, not 10 minutes from now...NOW.

I agree with Adrienne, if you hadn't specifically said something that'd be one thing, but that is inconsiderate to eat it when you said you were saving it for the morning. I'm glad you had a good lunch!

I started to feel better at 9 weeks, so hopefully you only have about three more weeks of feeling so crummy. I now have my good days and bad days but the bad days are much better! I still have to eat immediately if I feel hungry, though. I've heard that just gets more urgent as you get further into pregnancy.

That is something my DH would do and I would def react the same way! Especially since you said something :(

So I totally forgot to post this story. When I went to pick up my second results for my progesterone and beta from the lab, the lady went and printed out the result and gave it to me. I look at the top and it said, progesterone 1.03 or something like that and I almost burst into tears. Then I realized the beta wasn't on there at all so I looked and realized it was from January. I was so freaking relieved but I literally was so close to crying in the middle of the waiting room. She was like I'm sooooo sorry over and over. It was kind of terrible. Kind of funny looking back now though.

Oh, man, Crystal! That's terrible. So glad you can find the humor in it now. I would have been absolutely beside myself. :phew:

That's awful!! I'm glad that wasn't the real one from this pregnancy!

6w1d
Crystal's weird symptoms of the day: When I shiver, or get the chills where you shudder (hope you know what I mean) I get a horrid shooting pain from deep within my chest straight out to my nipple. Hurts like crazy and is so random. Still having some on and off cramping but it is a little more rare. Nausea is still really hit and miss. It comes on suddenly and then goes away randomly. Makes me nervous when it goes away completely. Still choking on my progesterone just because it is perfectly round. Really really bloated off and on. Running to the bathroom a lot more often. My cravings have turned from good things to things like lunch meat, hot dogs, soda with caffeine, coffee lol basically anything I can't have. Did have an awesome arbys craving today that dh fulfilled. Dh has been on much better behavior by the way. Finally said he was sorry for the stupid quesedilla issue. He didn't even give me crap about changing the kitty litter so things are good. I am definitely very cranky and teary off and on. I am scared about my appointment on Monday. I just pray that everything is ok. I am seriously fighting myself from calling the doc to ask if they can move up my ultrasound to this week. I want the best chance of seeing a heartbeat. By o day, I will be 6w4d and by lmp, 7w even. Doc seemed pretty set on staying with lmp date so I'm fine with that. Boobs are definitely getting big. I think I am going to do belly pics as soon as I get through the first trimester. I did take a before picture to post for comparison. Some days are better than others for me as far as fear of loss goes. One day I will feel super secure, then the next, I am all panicky. Dh is completely sure that everything is perfectly fine. NO spotting, no bleeding, that's about it.

That shooting pain is very odd! I'm sure everything will be just fine for your ultrasound on Monday. :) I know it's so hard not to worry, though. I kept talking myself into believing that things were not going to be fine just so I'd be less disappointed if there was a problem.

As for the progesterone, I have the capsules that are able to be taken orally, but my doctor has me insert them vaginally. I'm sure you could just do that instead if you're having trouble swallowing them. I'm not sure I'd do well swallowing it either. :yuck:

Glad that Joe is making it up to you!! :D

Re: Crystal and Joe's First bubs journal :)
 
The one "norm" of pregnancy I've learned is that nothing is normal. :P So that shooting pain out of your nipple might just be your thing.

Based on all you symptoms, even though you may worry about things coming and going, it sounds like you're so freakin' pregnant it's not even funny. Hope you can sufficiently keep yourself occupied until Monday. It will be an awesome u/s with a beautiful, flickering heartbeat.

That's a funny (not "haha" funny, but odd funny) symptom! But, nothing is "standard" with PG! Glad DH is on better behavior too :) Miss you in our neck of the woods, but SO GLAD you aren't there :lol:

Im sorry Im so late to the party! but I didnt even see your BFP thread!!! :rolleyes: so CONGRATS and Im super excited for you!!! and ditto what Adrienne said about it being your symptom and that nothing is normal in pg... :rolleyes:

Re: Crystal and Joe's First bubs journal :)
 
u/s on a Monday is a good thing because weekends go by so fast!

Um if DH didn't nag you for cleaning the kitty litter I will! Don't do it! :doghouse:

Crystallee April 25th, 2012 08:13 PM

Re: Crystal and Joe's First bubs journal :)
 
Teeheeeee meant that DH cleaned the kitty litter without complaint or whining.

Tammyms April 25th, 2012 08:16 PM

Re: Crystal and Joe's First bubs journal :)
 
Ahhh ok I thought you meant you cleaned it and he didn't grind your gears for it! :lol:

Re: Crystal and Joe's First bubs journal :)
 
I decided my morning sickness fix is simply eating all day long. I'm going to gain a 1000 lbs. As far as the progesterone goes, I would totally rather choke on it every single day for the rest of my life than insert it vaginally lol. I had some medicine one time that I had to do that for and it was so smooshy and gross and terrible. If that was the only option, I would be all for it though lol.

and I have fallen in love with lemon or lime in water. Yummmmy. Miss you too Karin. I can't get past the ttc mindset at all. I feel like this is just some treatment and a new cycle will start up sometime lol. Hope not. I'm hoping that everything feels real after Monday.

It's one of the things that got me through the first trimester queasiness.

Take an ice cube tray, fill the cubes with water, then drop pieces of lime/lemon (or cucumber - yum) in them and freeze. Presto! Lemon/Lime infused ice!

OH MY GOODNESS karin you are my new hero. Have I mentioned that I love you lol

Re: Crystal and Joe's First bubs journal :)
 
I drank lemon water all the time early in this pregnancy!! It really does help. I had to eat all the time, too. I gained 8lbs in the first 8 weeks, but at this appt I didn't gain anything so now that my morning sickness is easing up I can eat better and a more normal amount and it's leveling off. I was worried about how much I'd gain, too!

Crystallee April 27th, 2012 09:36 PM

Re: Crystal and Joe's First bubs journal :)
 
I am slightly excited that I am still losing weight/staying the same so thats good so far.
6w3d
Not much going on today. Queasy. I have hives for some random reason so I'm kind of scratchy.
