Hi, sorry I'm just now replying! I'm still not sleeping well, but have read up this issue and it has something to do with horomones. Not all women have this problem, but I guess it's something I'll be stuck with the entire time. I'm now exactly 15 weeks and I'm still have trouble. It seems to be getting worse also, so I'm just going with it for now. I'm not used to getting up in the middle of the night, but I guess I could get some chores done around the house if I cannot sleep. My Mom says my body is just getting me ready for the sleepless nights ahead when baby arrives. Hope all is well with you!View Thread
Hi! We have our first OB appt today. I'm officially 9 weeks, but will be interested to see where we're at concerning the measurements. The measurements were about 2 days behind the first due date at my first appt. I'm very nervous this time. I'm not feeling nearly as sick this last week and am wondering why. Since I was feeling so sick the last time, I wasn't as nervous. I just expected to more sick at 9 weeks. I'll keep you posted on what we find out. The best of luck to you! View Thread
Hi everyone! I'm 8w0d and am having a awful time getting sleep these days. Also, this is my first pregnancy. For about 3 weeks now I wake up early in the morning and lay awake for about 2 hours before falling asleep again. I've read this is normal for some women. I've always heard women say how sleepy they were and how they could almost sleep all day! I so wish that were my problem. On the days I lose sleep, I have increased nausea. Anyone else losing sleep out there? If so, any tips on how to deal with it? Thanks! View Thread
Hi, I'm 8w0d with my first pregnancy also. I'm 31 and have not clue what to expect. I don't worry much about feeling cramps or minor pain here and there. I've had 2 T/US with a specialist (we've been TTC for a while) and every looked great and we saw the heartbeat both times. I have my first official appt with my OB a week from today. Don't be scared and try not to worry, just have faith and be positive. Believe me, I know it's hard. Try getting in some light exercise to reduce stress. I've been able to still go to the gym almost 5 days a week, but have had to tone it down a little. I haven't had any traditional morning sickness, but nausea is getting a bit worse over the last few weeks. I've read that once you see/hear the heartbeat, you chance of miscarraige is reduced to less than 2%, so hang in there! Keep me posted on the latest! View Thread
We did an IUI almost 3 weeks ago tomorrow and found out we're expecting last Sunday. We've been TTC for 18 months when we did the IUI. Before I did the beta blood test last Sunday, my breast were sore and in general I wasn't feeling well. So I assumed my period was about to start. Imagine our shock when we found out we were pregnant! Anyways, early last week I started having light cramping, almost like period cramps. From what I've read this is normal, so I'm not worried. I started feeling very tired and in need of a nap later this week. I go back to have a 3rd blood test to check my hcg levels on Monday and am nervous. I'll have an ultrasound around day 30 and am currently on day 17 now.View Thread
