    My second pregnancy was a breeze smile

    With Eli I had constant morning sickness and horrible horrible food aversions. Cramps and pain and aches and crippling depression and so tired. Oh, and PIH.

    With Anna, I was tired (pregnancy fatigues the hell out of me), threw up like 3 times and only really had an aversion to chicken, far less pain and cramps and depression.

    Good luck to you! Hope it’s easier this time around. smile

    It may be that it’s so early on as well.  I was really sleepy the first few weeks but not too sick.  The sick didn’t really start kicking in until week 6 or so.  So, you’re probably just looking to be miserable too soon.  wink

    You are still tired and hungry and cranky and that is good. Get back to me if it all disappears suddenly and all at once before 10 weeks. Hey, what can I say? I’m an expert at disappearing pregnancy symptoms/embryos now. I’m sure you’re fine… you sound VERY cranky. wink

    Hmm, maybe it’s just a boy. Different sex=different symptoms?

    I think with subsequent pregnancies you tend to rush the symptoms and when they don’t show up you start wondering. Seriously, my bosom didn’t start hurting until the 10th week or so. Meanwhile, you are just starting the pukey and I am ovah it. hah hah and HAAAAA

    I told you!!!

    Whatever happens, I’m sure it will be great blog fodder and we all know that’s what really matters around here. Just keep us laughing; we don’t care if you have to be sick or not to do it. raspberry

    LOL!  Your cracking me up.  I didn’t feel bad in the beginning with either of my pregnancies smile

    Everything is fine smile

    I have three beautiful children and three totally different pregnancy stories.  This baby is a different person and YOU are a different person than when you were pregnant before.  Think happy thoughts and know that we are all rooting for you.

    I never had sore boobs (maybe just a tad tender) OR much morning sickness at all. In fact, between two pregnancies I only puked twice! And I gots me two sassy little girls, despite the not feeling pukey. I’m sure Baby Flinger is swimming around, enjoying the view and the warm water.

    I’m sure everything is fine. All 3 of my pregnancies were very different.
    Not sure about the negative home test. Maybe you peed on the stick incorrectly. ;^)

  • August 15, 2006

    i’m hoping all is ok for you and your new bean.  if you’re worried because of the test call your doc to check it out. 

    i’m thinking of you.

    Was it a different type of test? You know - different test, different sensitivity level since it’s still very early for you.  If in doubt, get thee to your doctor ASAP.

    I also didn’t get the sensitive boobies & pukeys until about week 10-12.  It was so awful at the time and now I can’t even remember when it was.

    Could it be the test you are using?  I had a negative home test after a positive (same brand of test both times, and freaked out.  Then I read that particular test wasn’t very accurate until 8 weeks or so.  So, I switched and bam!  Positive as all get out. As were the next…uh, FIVE that I took*.

    The one I switched to was First Response, and it worked well for me.  Here is a list of tests and detection levels:

    I got great results from First Response, too.

    I don’t think my boobs hurt at all in the beginning, and the pukey-ness was sort of late first trimester.  (Funny side story, I was working for an oral surgeon at the time I was pregnant, so you can imagine how much FUN I had helping to pull teeth all day whilst trying not to puke on the patient.)

    Anyway… it is totally possible to have a false NEGATIVE preggo test, but not a false POSITIVE.  And why are you still taking a home test if you already went to the doc?  Silly rabbi.  (yes, I left off the “t” intentionally.) 

    Relax… deep breaths… soon enough you will be right on track feeling like shit and sore/pukey/emotionally unstable just like you should.  (It just doesn’t sound right to actually HOPE that happens to someone tho!).

    Are you sure you didn’t pee on an old test from a couple months ago? I’m just asking…

    You’re going to drive yourself crazy if you don’t stop angsting about this!

  • August 15, 2006

    WHat time of day did you take the 1st test?  In the morning as soon as you woke up?

    Call the doctor for another blood test!

    Praying (((HUGS)))

  • August 15, 2006

    I agree, it is VERY possible to get a false negative even after a positive test when it is this early.  Was it the same brand of test as the other?

    Also, are you going back for another blood draw soon?  At least that could give you some peace of mind.  Try not to freak out too much (I know, easy for me to say).  Hugs.

  • August 15, 2006

    I totally understand why you’re freaking out. But, everyone above has had great suggestions and possible explanations. Try another brand of test and aren’t you going back to your doctor today (or soon) for another blood draw? I hope that you are so it will ease your mind.

    I freaked out through my entire pregnancy about everything. It’s normal to be nervous. And, it’s early for you yet. I did’t get major icky symptoms until around 6 weeks and then (lucky me!) they stayed around until about week 15.

    I’m thinking of you and Little Flinger and hope everything is just fine!

  • August 15, 2006

    I just got back from the doctor for more blood work. The test I took this morning was the dip test from I’ve never taken that one before (so I know it was a NEW test and not a used one.. LAURA.. heeh) So I’ll find out more tomorrow (maybe later today).

    Meanwhile, I’ll just be sitting around trying to grow a baby. Or a clump o’ cells. Or something.

    Thanks, y’all.
