I am going to be a March 2010 mommy!!! I just went to my 1st ultrasound appointment last week, and I was given a due date of 3/9/2010. My husband (actually future husband....our wedding is in three weeks) and I are ecstatic. It was a total shock, but a pleasant surprise.
Anyway, I am exactly 8 weeks today, according to the ultrasound measurements.
Perpetual Nausea. It comes in waves....all day long. But I haven't actually thrown up. Its just the feeling and almost gagging. I guess I am lucky. My BFF is 16 weeks pregnant, and she has thrown up at least once a day since week 4.
Also, constipation!!! Jeez, I had no idea what constipation felt like until now. Apparently, all the progesterone pumping through my body relaxes the colon & intestines which usually keep things moving. I felt so backed up, bloated, and all around uncomfortable. So I stepped up my fiber consumption by adding high-fiber oatmeal and Kellogs All-Bran cereal bars. But what really did the trick was prune juice. Its totally disgusting, but totally worth it to clear the pipes. (hope that wasnt too much information
Also, I am EXHAUSTED!!! All the time. I can't get enough rest. I feel like I need a nap in the middle of the day.
And I think my last symptom that I have noticed is complete forgetfulness. I walked into Target yesterday, and completely forgot what I needed there. I feel like a total space cadet.
Anyway....hope this helps. Congrats.
