Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

Symptoms...list em!!!

I have had crazy symptoms!  Anyone else?  Here's a list:


-Horrible Backaches...I was waddling on saturday after dinner because my back and hip were hurting sooooo bad!!!! :(


-cramps...they come and go.  Some are sharp, some are achey, and some feel like my V-card is throbbing!


-I've been having pooping problems (sorry TMI).  Today I couldnt' stop going but it started to hurt since my booty was so tender.  But i'd start to get the churning stomach and then just sitting on the toilet was relief even if I didn't go.


-Exhausted all day long, yet can't sleep through the night.


-No m/s yet (FINGERS CROSSED!) but my taste buds are wacky and nothing seems appealing except certain foods...burgers, pizza, mashed potatoes, soup, and salad! <--at least i've got one healthy thing in there...lol...OH and I like apple sauce but am not a fan of apples right now which I normally love!


-OH and moody and emotional!  LOL... :)

Sounds like we got a lot of the same stuff going on...lucky us:)


- crampy- on and off though less today, some sharp and some achey


- pooping problems ditto to that too


- exhausted...forced myself to go on a long walk today with my dog to get some exercise


- overly emotional...and kinda bitchy :)


- feeling super bloated--- feel like my stomach is an air balloon that wants to pop


- taste buds are kind off


- no m/s yet....have a feeling it will coincide with my first weeks back to work (I teach 3rd grade) and it starts in two weeks...should be good times.

I have all of the above. I am being so mean, but I can't seem to help it. I definitely have the food cravings and aversions. I seem to want any type of raw fruit or vegetable. I've eaten salad every day which is not normal at all for me. I want Coke (to drink lol) often as well. I was sucking it down like it was going out of style at dinner. DH was looking at me like...wtf?


I didn't see either of you mention the sore boobs. Are you not having that yet? It honestly hurts when I put on or take off a bra. Once it's on I feel less pain with the bra. I guess because they can't move around as much?

OMG!!!  Sore ta-tas hit me last night and I couldn't sleep AT ALL!  It was horrible!  And I'm a tummy sleeper.  So that can definitely be added to my list.  They felt bigger and tender before but starting last night they are PAINFUL!!!


@clightner-I"m a teacher too!  Our first day of school was this past monday!  I teach 9-12 grade dance and i'm the assistant dance team director!

I had baaadddd backaches in the beginning as well - try drinking a lot of water that seemed to help me!  Good news is it goes away :)

Thanks Prinncess!  That's helpful to know! 


Any advice on restless sleeping?  I'm exhausted all day long but then can't sleep through the night? :/

No sorry :( I was lucky and was just hit with extreme exhaustion so I fell asleep pretty quickly...I did wake up quite a few times to pee!!!!


From what I hear it doesn't last long, just try to nap when you can!


It does get better promise :)

The bloat is TERRIBLE today...I am so uncomfortable....I feel like such a wimp complaining like this already but god I have never felt like this before. It sucks!!!


My boobs are starting to get tender when I take off my bra in the evening. What did you ladies hear about caffine? I am a huge diet coke drinker but I have been trying not to drink caffine. Plus since I am so bloated I should probably just be drinking plain old water...ehhh...not a fan.


Still totally bitchy too. lol

Well great, I got a new one. I have gas like 24/7 now. This is not a problem that I ever normally have. It's pretty painful sometimes. There is one good part to this. I can finally get DH back for all of his nasty farts! LOL

@clightner - what about caffine free diet coke?  I still drink caffine almost every day, I just try to limit it to one soda a day.

So far...


- Feeling "hung over" 24/7. Just blahhh!


- Tired all the time! I can barely make it through the day and day dream about the couch after work!


- Bloating and gas. Can't suck it in for the life of me!!!


- Can't stop peeing. So bad that DH said this morning, "You know we've gone through a whole roll of TP in a day". Ha!


- Very sore boobs and they started out as monsters and continue to grow daily :/


- I feel so tired at night but my heart races and I can't fall asleep right away and wake up really earlier for some reason.


Plus more!!! May can't come soon enough!!! :)

i am very excited to say that i'm a new victim of morning sickness! it started about 5 days ago but i just thought it was my mind messing with me. Since yesterday, it's gotten soo bad and now I know it's the real deal!  I feel qeasy all day long and it seems the only thing that's helping is to eat...but I'm not very hungry! Guess I've got to stuff my face more often :/


I'm also incredibly bloated and there's no sucking it in. I don't have to pee much more than the usual but now I wake up at least once per night to go. I do have to say that although I feel like crap and want to puke all day, I truly love it because I feel like baby is ok. Plus it kinda feels like a right-of-passage, kwim? I probably sound crazy...

You definitely sound crazy. lol I'm glad you have a positive attitude to put towards it though. You may change your tune after a few weeks of all the fun. I'm trying to get a more positive feeling about things now. I've been so miserable, but I'm trying to think myself into feeling better. We shall see if it works.

Lol, I knew it. Dh is just as excited about it as I am, too. I'll say, "I think I'm going to barf" and he'll say, "That's awesome, babe!" Thanks??
And you're right, I probably will change my mind in a couple weeks. :)

Well thank god the last few days have been a little better for me because last weekend was HORRIBLE. Nausea comes and goes but hasn't been as bad. Everytime I get nauseous I eat something and it helps but last week "NOTHING worked. Only problem is because I am not throwing up and have NOOOOOO energy to work out I have gained 5 lbs. My dr. didn't seem concerned and said she just wants me to make it through the first trimester. I still have 4 more weeks to go! ughh I am secretly hoping that the worst of the nausea is behind me...but who knows I might be speaking too soon.


At this point...still peeing alot, extreme exhaustion, total food aversions, boobs slowly starting to grow....and feeling FAT not pregnant....oh the joys of pregnancy...hoping the 2nd tri will be better!
