My pregnancy: 6 weeks

How sad is it that I am already losing the motivation to make weekly pregnancy symptoms updates at just 6 weeks? This is mostly because I’ve spent the better part of this week dealing with terrible morning sickness, which is really more like morning, noon, and night sickness.

I’ve also been incredibly exhausted by about 9:00 p.m. every night, and instead of staying awake to try and tackle the work I now have piling up, I have been going to bed early, because I just can’t fight the fatigue.

I am happy to report, however, that my Dr. prescribed me a great pill for nausea, that is definitely taking the edge off, and allowing me to have moments of relief.

I certainly hope the next 4 weeks go quickly, still counting down to that first ultrasound.

  1. Oh man, I am not looking forward to the nausea. I had that with my last pregnancy. At 5 weeks I have not had any nausea yet. With my last pregnancy it did not hit until my 7th week and lasted until 20 weeks. Hoping for a smoother sail this time.
    What did you take for the nausea this time?

  2. I hope you feel better!

  3. My thoughts are with you. With my first I too had the morning, noon, night sickness. Actually lost weight in my first trimester! Hope it goes by quickly. Not scientific, but my prediction is that this baby is a girl :)

  4. Girl! I am 8 weeks along and you described me to a tee! What did he prescribe you? Because I really need it too! Hope this stage doesn’t last too long for us!!

  5. What pill Did he prescribe? And how safe is it for the baby? I have a feeling when I get pregnant I’ll be really sick, so need to be prepared!

  6. Hang in there, Crissy! Better days are ahead. And it’s all so worth it in the long run :)

  7. So sorry for all the sickness. Its so hard isn’t it? Hang in there and happy mothers day

  8. Unfortunately, my morning sickness hit me at 6 weeks with both pregnancies. It stayed throughout the first one and dwindled off with #2. I hope you get through this stage quickly, and it does go away.
    I definitely know it is NOT a fun thing to go through.
    Rest as much as you can! It takes a LOT of energy to grow a baby!

  9. Sorry about the nausea, really hope the medicine helps!!! Are you guys going to find out the gender when it comes time??

    I’m so glad I’m finally out of the fatigue stage… at least for the 2nd trimester. I’m not so patiently waiting for our ultrasound. All the old wives tales say girl, my Will swears it’s a girl, and I feel like it’s a girl…

  10. So happy for you…well not the nausea part but I know you think it’s worth it too. We’re 20 weeks along and after two boys are expecting a GIRL! It’s fun to have a blog friend to go through this with.

  11. wow your pregnancy is go by so fast. its always like that on the first few month than the last two month aways take forever…
