Kailah and Baby (I still can't come up with a nickname!)
w/g - down 5lbs
s/c - Well, between the m/s and having Strep really bad last week, I'm losing weight. Luckily, I have some padding I can lose, lol! Boobs/nipples are more tender. Definitely more emotional lately.
other - I need to start taking all my vitamins again now that I'm better. I've decided I hate all my vitamins right now, but that's probably the m/s speaking, lol. We're starting to get ready for our trip to Cabo in 2 weeks! So excited!
Ooooo! Have fun at the u/s. Let us know how it goes!

w/g - I feel like I lost a couple lbs this week since I've been really sick
symptoms/complaints - evening m/s. I finally threw up once, but that was also aggravated by my illness. Honestly, I'm really not feeling that pg right now.
other - I had strep really bad this week. I have been SO sick! I felt it coming on Wednesday, and today is the first day something's not hurting, but I'm still exhausted. Of course not being able to take anything but tylenol was so hard. I'm on an antibiotic for the next 8 days still, so hopefully I don't relapse or anything. And hopefully my family, especially my kids, don't get it! DD is looking like she has a cold, so hopefully that's as bad as it gets.
So I've been sick pretty sick since Thursday - Chills, aches, fever, sore throat. I've been slowly getting better, though. Today I felt like I was having trouble breathing, and was really having to focus on taking slow, deep breathes. Then I started getting dizzy and my face started to tingle. I was getting a little scared so I called a friend and she helped me figure out someone to watch my kids so I could go to urgent care (DH is flying - He's an airline pilot). So I get there and they basically say I'm hyperventilating and to focus on taking short, slow breathes. That's what was making my face tingle and me to feel dizzy. Because of my sore throat they did a strep test and it was positive, so I'm guessing (they didn't say anything) that because my throat is swollen it's making it feel harder to breath even though I'm really fine, which was causing me to take more/deeper breathes which caused my O2 to be oversaturated (it was at 100!). I'm home now with a pregnancy ok Rx and the kids and trying rest as much as possible. Sweet DH is so worried about me being sick and about how the baby's doing. I really don't want him to have to fly home as I'm really starting to feel better compared to Thursday/Friday, I just tried to do too much and be supermom this morning. So now I'm back on my butt doing next to nothing. Grahmn Crackers and granola bars are good meals for kids, right? View Thread
Ok, not really. But I feel like I am! Stupid lowered immune system - I have the flu! Fever, chills, aches, headache, sore throat. And I threw up but I'm not sure if it was m/s or the flu. Bah! Thank God DH is home to take care of the kiddos today or I'd really be dying!View Thread
Kailah and ? (Still need a nickname!) 5w6d w/g - 0 s/c - m/s!!!! Yay but :x lol! I haven't thrown up yet, but I've been close a few times. Some RLP too. Other-I'm starting to tell more people the closer to 6w I get. I just can't keep a secret, ha! Now we just have to make sure we tell all the siblings and grandparents first. next mw/a - Still haven't made my first appt. My mw sees clients for the first time around 10 weeks, but I may go in at 9weeks because I leave for Cabo with my family when I'm 10w. I should probably make that appointment, lol!View Thread
First of all (((((HUGS))))) and I am so sorry for your losses After my first loss, we waited one cycle to TTC, but it took 6 cycles to get pregnant again. I had another loss in March of this year, too, but we decided not to wait because I'd heard that after a m/c you are really fertile. Since it was a really early m/c (5w) it acted just like a period, 2w later I O'd, 2w later BFP. Hugs!View Thread
Huge (((HUGS))). Being pregnant is stressful enough without anything else added to it. Bedrest is horrible! I wonder if you could reach out to a local moms group at all. MOPS is a great organization that you can join when you're first pregnant and usually has great resources. You can call the coordinator and talk to them. www.mops.org is the website where you can find a local group. I know there are websites and forums for moms on bedrest that can be amazingly supportive and lifesaving. I don't know any personally, but maybe you could google some? Huge (((Hugs))) again. We are here for you!View Thread
Welcome and Congrats! I'm also just a little over 5 weeks. Usually, in my experience, there aren't a lot of symptoms until 6ish weeks. I have very mild m/s right now, and some stretching in my uterus, but that's it. Yes, symptoms can come and go. But it's SO hard not to analyze everything! I've done it every pregnancy. Hugs and sticky vibes!!View Thread
