Any new developments/appointments? No, nothing new. Still waiting for my first ultrasound, which isn't for another 9 days.
How are you feeling these days? Actually a lot better. Still nauseous and throwing up every other day, but the fatigue has let up a lot. I feel much more alive. More optimistic.
So far, is this pregnancy easier, harder, or the same as what you expected? This first trimester was so much worse than I could have imagined. I was truly miserable for a good chunk of time. The constant dry heaving and vomiting and hung-over feeling...yikes. For some reason I thought I'd just throw up and move on with my day. Apparently not. But 2nd tri is looking pretty good on the horizon.
GTKY: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be an artist, a pianist, or a mime. Anything that didn't involve talking.
I'll play! (Fact, my BMB is much more active than this board)
Weeks/ Fruit: 8 weeks / Raspberry Developments/ Appointments: I got blood taken so they can test me for STDs. The lady like--- jerked on the needle before she pulled it out. Ouch! Feelings: the nausea was better today than yesterday but still sucks. I haven't thrown up though, so I'll take it. Difficulty: This pregnancy is definitely more symptomatic than my last (so far) but not awful. GTKY: I wanted to be a doctor
What week/fruit are you? 6 weeks based on LMP, sweet pea.
Any new developments/appointments? First prenatal appt is not till Feb 6th, I'm so excited because right now it just doesn't feel real.
How are you feeling these days? Great! If it wasn't for the 4 positive HPTs and the positive lab test through my doctor I wouldn't even believe I'm pregnant. The lack of symptoms is freaking me out but it probably won't last lol.
So far, is this pregnancy easier, harder, or the same as what you expected? First pregnancy for me, but easier.
GTKY: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? The governer General of Canada (lol!)

What week/fruit are you? week 4ish, and a poppy seed.
Any new developments/appointments? First prenatal blood work and appointments are towards the end of Feb.
How are you feeling these days? I'm feeling ok. I have some bad gas pains occassionally, and I have been burping a lot more than usual, but nothing to adverse. I get really hungry a lot faster now.
So far, is this pregnancy easier, harder, or the same as what you expected? A bit easier. I had a friend who was sick her the moment she missed her period. So i was expecting morning sickness by now. But from what I've read, this is normal not to feel anything too serious yet.
GTKY: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be either an astronaut or a backup dancer lol
Week: 9! Little wild strawberry wrecking havoc in there!
Updates/appointments: First ultrasound on Feb. 16 - can't wait to get a heartbeat, see this little science experiment.
Feeeeelings: So over this whole nausea, sore boobs, fatigue, bloat thing. Headaches have entered the mix, too. We're remodeling our dining room since, oh I freakin' conceived, and I'm slowing things down.
Easier/harder? Going in, I knew pretty much anything could happen, so I didn't really set myself up for anything in particular. The insta-bloat surprised me and so it looks like I'll be giving up the cute pencil skirts and most of my pants way sooner than I thought.
GTKY: A jockey!! But alas, I like food and honestly don't have the physical discipline to be fit enough to handle a 1200lb animal running 40 mph around the track.

What week/fruit are you? 5/Apple seed
Any new developments/appointments? Going for my first prenatal appointment on Tues. Looking forward to that. Interested to see what all goes on during that.
How are you feeling these days? Well, yesterday I was nauseous all day and today is not too bad. I've been having tons of anxiety about losing the baby. I'm not having any problems, I'm just constantly worried it'll happen. It's driving me nuts.
So far, is this pregnancy easier, harder, or the same as what you expected? So far easier. I was expecting MS a lot sooner, but I guess I can't complain
GTKY: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A teacher or an actress
