@Jumpingjacks: Sorry about your fall, that must have been scary!
I've been walking a lot for exercise, but I've been too afraid to do my usual work out at the gym. In fact, I asked DH to have then hold my membership until the second trimester.
@kayakgirl73: I hear you on the smells. I can barely go in the kitchen sometimes. DH was away when I got my BFP and I had to let the cat box wait for him to come home. I ended up buying a new one because I was scared to change the other one and the smell made me sick!
This morning was the worst so far for morning sickness. I woke up at 3am ready to puke.
We were suppose to go see Avengers tonight, but I think I'll be asleep before the previews are over. I'm going to try to convince DH into a matinee tomorrow.

I am now 7w 2d and the morning sickness is kicking in a lot!!! I am trying to exercise 4-5 times a week(mostly walking and light arms), but I am so sick right now that its tough. Its hard to drink anything without getting sick to my stomach.

i got my HCG test results back from Wednesday and they are right where they are supposed to be at 5w1d, so it seems like my O date is right on! I'm going in for a dating U/S in two weeks so they can give me an EDD based on that. I'm betting it's right on with the EDD that FF gave me.
relieved that it's over and that i can move forward!

@Jumpingjacks: I'm exercising a bit. I had gone back to the gym about two months before I got pregnant. I'm mainly walking on the treadmill and some exercise bike. Maybe some light arm weights. I do about 20 minutes a day.

@Jumpingjacks: I've been trying to stick with my normal exercising rountine. DH and I go road biking on his days off, but on Wednesday we had to stop early it killed my lower back... and I've been doing some insanity workouts every once in a while, but I don't do them with 100% effort... I think i need to find some new exercises... What are other girls doing? I really wanna stay active!

I did some swimming before getting pregnant, so I might start to do that again. I tend to get a sore back from a previous injury and the swimming really helps with it. I've heard sore back can be common in pregnancy, so I think I need to be especially pro-active about it. I also walk about 25 - 30 minutes a day. My doctor suggested pre-natal yoga. I might look into that.

I quit playing soccer three times a week about 4 months ago. I totally feel like I'm not doing enough, but I also didn't feel like I could for the first week or two because I was so bloated and my abs hurt so much (like it felt like I shouldn't stretch them). Now I'm just tight everywhere and I'm even getting numbness running down the back of my right leg...sciatica. It's not at all painful, just weird. I think I need to get into a major stretching routine and/or buy a prenatal yoga video. I'm kind of scared to go to a real class...
I might try jogging this week. Otherwise, I'll try to extend my walks.
@Mrs Green Grass: That's so weird...I have numbness down my right leg too. I didn't think it was because of the pg, but maybe...? I've been stretching like crazy.
@Jumpingjacks: I'm getting numbness in my arms and hands especially if I have them under my pillow at night. Weird. I know about pregnancy induced carpel tunnel syndrome, my sister had it but it started much later than 6/7 weeks.
I've been getting really numb hands/arms when I sleep on them too. I didn't think it was connected to the pregnancy until I saw this! Must be a circulation issue.
The stretching has made the numbness go away. My whole body feels a lot better than last week (for no good reason).

EDD for me is 1/13/2013.
Are you all first time moms? Congrats!
@Pipers Mommy: Congrats to you too.
Yes, it is the first time for me.
First baby for me too.
Is anyone else crazy bloated? I could swear a bump is forming already, but I know it's still early. I'm only 6w6d.
@Pipers Mommy: First time mom
@oliviaoblivia: I'm pretty bloated and I'm still on Progesrone and Estrace suppositories with all their associated yuckiness.
I'm quite bloated too. I feel and look like I've gained weight, but the scale keeps reading the same number.

I put up an intro post too, but here goes again:
Well...after today's drama at the ol' WB TTC boards, I've gotta say I'm done there. Seriously. Train wreck horribleness.
I've been TTC for 21 cycles, unexplained infertility, in the AMIGO study (meds + IUI), with 2 prior cp's. Me - 30, DH - 28.
I'm currently at 4w 3d, with beta #1 at 13 DPO = 113. 15 DPO = 267. Currently cautiously optimistic due to my prior losses.
I see a lot of the same faces over here...anyone else jumping ship over there yet?
@dagret: You're here already! Yay!
@Pipers Mommy: 1/13 is my EDD from the doctor too!
Yes...I think often that I look like I"m in the 2nd trimester. I put on my sweatpants as soon as I get home each day. Why is it there?
Welcome Dagret : )
Thanks for the welcome, ladies!
So...anyone else extremely irritable? I manage to be fine all day at work and when I come home I manage to treat my husband pretty badly. It sucks. I've tried to explain the hormones to him and that I am stressing over this pg sticking and I'm doing the best I can - .I get home and I'm tired and hungry and the house is messy...
He doesn't seem to get it. Keeps telling myself to "get under control" he has 2 brothers and my MIL must have never, ever, ever had PMS Bc he absolutely does not understand how hormones work on your mood. Even when i start crying at stupid stuff, hes just bewildered. We had this same argument last time I was pg.
Any suggestions, books, etc?
@dagret: It sucks that your DH doesn't understand hormones. That must be so frustrating! My DH grew up with all women and blames just about everything on hormones - even when it's not. I don't have any suggestions as far as books go, maybe the other ladies have ideas. Hang in there!
Thanks Olivia. The last 2 days have been better.
So I just got my 3rd beta results - they were 2,059, which is about twice what they wanted it to be. So yay! We go for an ultrasound next Thursday. (which will be just shy of 6 weeks)
@dagret: Glad you are feeling better! and your third beta is great!
@dagret: yay! i'm glad the beta results were good! i have my U/S next thursday too!
First stretch marks appeared this morning. Two red squiggles below my breasts. Ugh! My boobs are out of control. I've already gone up two cup sizes. DH is thrilled. Too bad it's more of a look but DO NOT TOUCH situation.
Other than that I feel good today. Anyone have any updates?

@oliviaoblivia: *giggle*...I'm REALLY so excited for you. Up for a GTA meetup soon? @Emahlee is due any second now so she might be out.
@Rubies: absolutely! I'll start a thread.
i had my first ultrasound today at 8 weeks! Looks good! This is my 2nd baby
@shoemama: I'm jealous you've already had an ultrasound. I don't get to go in until the end of June! Glad everything is looking good!
@birdofafeather: My second ultrasound is next Wednesday, so excited I need the reassurance after what it take to get Pregnant. My journey was as bad as a lot of folks but bad enough.
first appt and U/S scheduled for June 12th, and I ordered an "I'm going to be a big sister" shirt today for LO to help make the announcement to our families
Re:bloating - we had a picnic Saturday and I was soooo bloated. My MIL actually came up to me, touched my stomach, and said, ooh, maybe you have 2 in there!
Seriously, I'm 5w3d, and it's physically impossible to be really showing this early. I told her I was just bloated and she just looked at me like, yah right. Of course the next day my stomach was back to normal. The woman had 3 children, you'd think she'd remember...sigh.
@dagret: My bloating has been out of control too. It's hard for me because I've never really bloated in the rest of my life. My bloat bump is full-on 2nd trimester. But I think it'll go away eventually. (I hope!) I'm going to a pool party today...I hate the first bikini time of the summer enough without this! We'll see if I get in the water...
I have my first ultrasound tomorrow and I'm really nervous!!! I really hope things are ok!
I'm also starting to get nausea (I think). I just feel a little off sometimes and dislike some smells (my husband is making ribs and they just don't smell good to me). But I'm still eating and no actual throwing up.
Oh the bloating. At the dog park yesterday I had someone ask me when I was due.
I caved and bought a pair of maternity jeans this weekend, my jeans just dig into my belly at the end of the day and it's sooo uncomfortable.
Mrs.GG sorry about the nausea, it's no fun. Good luck at your US tomorrow, I'll be looking out for an update.
