Hi Everyone - I have been away and just too tired otherwise to check in, but it is exciting to see how much has happened since I've been on!!!
Daisy - welcome - it is great to see your growing little one finally, isn't it?
Baylorbear - I am so happy for your strong singleton results!!
CK - Congrats on your first view.... here's to an even better U/S the next time around!
Sabi - I am so relieved for you and happy for the twins! You will do great with two in there - and they must be strong with betas like that!
Wishfull - I here ya! All I feel is tired lately! Get the sleep you need.... your health will appreciate it later when you don't get ill. I have read a lot about pregnancy lowering a woman's immune system, so we are more susceptible to everything, including the common cold. Sleep is golden!
Belle - How are things going? I also reduced my activities a bit (just in terms of numbers - continued touch football and long distance running but no more ball hockey which can be body contact) and am trying to avoid major jolting motions, but otherwise, I find that my nausea is lessened and my energy is higher when I am active - the worst is when I sit too long doing nothing active!!
Julie - How are you feeling now, with your back pain, etc.? Has it subsided?
Abogenpohl - How are you? How did your u/s go last Wednesday?
Hi to everyone else in case I missed you!
AFM - I find that I feel different now at almost 9 weeks than at 8 weeks. It feels like the nausea is actually subsiding somewhat. I still feel it, but immediately eat something and I feel better - it does the trick. My only major symptom now is the exhaustion which suddenly hit me full force at 7.5 to 8 weeks - where I slept in mornings, didn't do too much, and was drowsy by noon, had a nap, then was tired again by suppertime (and this was while on holidays!). While everyone else is up to all hours, I just want to slink off to bed. I am still eating a lot.
And.... I am starting to show extra "tummy" - I can't call it a belly, as there is no definition whatsoever - and I have not gained any weight yet - but my shape is certainly changing - the waist is wider and hips and belly are rounder.
Anyone else noticing physical changes? I am sure you with multiples will notice earlier than the rest of us....
