First off, it's very normal to be feeling this way! I think it would be kind of rare to get three false positives. Go ahead and call your doctor. They usually like to do the first appointment between 8 and 10 weeks. I think it's normal to have the feeling of being full and hungry at the same time. It feels like there's something in your stomach- like a baby! lol. And the morning sickness will probably start to kick in very shortly. Be thankful it hasn't already! As for telling your boyfriend? I would say you should try to sound excited when you do tell him. He probably wont have exactly the reaction you hope for, but once it sinks in he will be just as excited. You should tell him soon though. When I was pregnant with my first child (I'm pregnant with the second now), my boyfriend and I had only been together a few months. When I told him I was pregnant he just kind of sat there in silence for awhile. But within a few weeks he was just as excited as I was. Things will work out just fine you guys too.
I just had my second doctor's appointment yesterday! I'm 12 and half weeks pregnant with baby number 2! Everything went great. Doctor told us that we could have the ultrasound to determine the sex before Christmas. We are so excited! We already have a 15 month old son and we're hoping for a girl! Can't wait to find out!
I'm going to go ahead and move up to the second trimester board even though it's still about a week early. I'm too excited! A third of this pregnancy is over! Yay! I'm already starting to get some of my energy back and feel a little less nauseaus. Hopefully the rest of this pregnancy goes smoothly...View Thread
I work for a retail store and we have a daily meeting that usually lasts around 10 minutes (sometimes longer when my boss gets a little longwinded). I find I have a problem just standing still. It feels like my body is pulling me down and I get a little dizzy. During my first pregnancy I actually passed out when I was around 20 weeks. After that happened I sat in a chair every day during the meeting. I have low blood sugar and I think that might have something to do with it even though I eat quite frequently.
I am 9 weeks pregnant with my second child and I'm already having trouble standing for the meeting. I try to kind of move around a little during the meeting or even lean on the counter, but nothing really seems to help. I haven't talked to my new doctor about this issue, but when I told my old doctor during my last pregnancy about passing out she acted like it was no big deal and that it happens all the time.
Does anyone else feel the same way? Or have had the same thing happen to them?View Thread
Is it like a charlie horse cramp? Whenever you are having a cramp point your toes outward. It kind of stretches the muscle and gets it to relax. I had these cramps a lot with my first pregnancy and the stretching always seemed to help.View Thread
