Every time is different, I know, but have you all had any of these symptoms?
1) upset/sensitive tummy - I feel like I have mild food poisoning basically- a little pain (bearable) and many trips to the bathroom but not for the usual pg reason; this has never happened to me with pg before.
2) Not nauseous every day? Usually I am sick every single day, sometimes all day long, and this time not so much. I am thankful for this one as long as it doesn't mean something is wrong.
3) weird tingling on right/non-dominant side of body - just in my hand and foot mostly, but sometimes the right leg is tingly too. I googled this one and read it could be caused by a calcium OR and iron deficiency, so I guess I need new prenatals asap (hence my other post). This is the strangest new symptom.

I also had loose stools with most of my kids in the beginning. I always heard constipation hits early, but I don't get that til later! :-
The low calcium tingling has happened to DH when he gave platelets and it started in his lips and then headed out, but it was never one sided. That sounds more like a pinched nerve, but I am so not a neurologist. I would ask about that with your doc. You could be swelling and having some carpal tunnel like symptoms. I got those early on, even with this pregnancy and I have had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. It went away pretty quickly and I haven't had any issues!
I am not a morning sickness person, but early on I would get nauseated, but not every day. I usually got it after I ate, but it was more random.
I hope things are going well. This pregnancy (my 8th pregnancy, 5th that has gone on) is way different than the last ones. Things feel different, but I had twins last time, so it could be that it's just more subtle than last time and that's what I remembered.
3) yep - my tingling was caused by low iron - freaked me out the first time I had it years ago - I was sitting at a dentist's office with the kiddies having appts. - I felt numb in my hand and part of my face, even - then it faded. Made sure I had a snack next time if waiting was gonna take forever. :wink:

My stomach is still kind of a mess, but not as bad as before. I took a big calcium pill@ my mom's the other day when we were over and that seemed to make the tingling go away so I need to pick up some of what she is taking for here - the chewy calcium I have here is not cutting it apparently. I had a weird pain in my left arm this morning, but it is gone now, I think I just slept on it wrong and am feeling preggo paranoid about it.
Everything smells terrible!!! Hot metal (when I am doing dishes) is gross, it smells like blood, raw chicken smells so repugnant I have to cook it before it defrosts all the way or I can't handle it, vegetables smell disgusting. Last night I had rice on a flour tortilla for dinner and today so far I had lemonade, 2 pancakes (plain, no butter or syrup or honey) and some berries. At least the berries were healthy. it is like I have forgotten how to be pregnant! What is the matter with me? I need to pinch my nose shut and get some nutrition.
Also, it is like the only thing I can think about, probably bec I haven't told anyone other than dh and you all :)

My stomach bubbles and gurgles all 1st trimester you can hear it's just upset which actually makes me nauseas I have acid overload lol painfully stomachache with diarrhea, I don't get tingling or anything, but everything smells way to strong and nothing smells good and I eat whatever sounds good so I eat terrible lol I just can't stomach anything I am not in the mood for and I crave something and go buy it and when I smell it instantly change my mind I don't want it anymore lol anyway glad the calcium pill helped you and I read that hcg peak around 10wks and then drop some and some ladies start feeling a relief from all the yucky smells and nausea basically all the bad stuff from 1st trimester lol
