    Hi 1PJ. We did. Normal run of the mill supermarket brand water based and we fell pregnant. don't presssure yourself, sometimes relaxing about becoming pregnant is the best thing you could do to prepare your body. Best of luck!

    Carla. After i became pregnant, i spoke with heaps of friends and work colleagues who have had kids to compare symptoms. Every single one of them had a different experience. Some had really bad m/s for the first trimester (like i did!!), others had it througout their pregnancy. A couple felt nauseaus all the time but no m/s and heaps of them (i could not believe this) had absolutely NO m/s. So the moral of the story i guess is, that there really is no standards formula. Try to keep yourself healthy and put your feet up. That's all that really matters at the end because your body seems to let you know when you need to rest or stop, or do something different.

    Thanks bubba..I guess my questions were some that couldnt really be answered...like oyu said everyones different. NO M/S what a blessing.......I think mine is wanting to come on....all my symptoms are changing....

    I think I get scared that something bad has happened if I get no symptoms...i should try and relax and enjoy this!

    I have been having midnight sickness. I have woken every night at either 12.30 or 3.30 and although I dont always need to be sick, I think sometimes it would help.

    I have also been having stomach cramps, usually just before I need to go to the toilet, so I dont know if this is Speck telling me to go!!

    I hope everyones symptoms settle soon.

    Good luck for a H&H PG

    I was chatting to one of my girlfriends who suffered terribly with constipation in first and second trimester. She said that she identified raw capsicum as the offending item in her diet and has eliminated that. Since then she has been much better.
    Maybe check in with a natropath, and see if there are any other foods that cause this to happen, and it might just be some trial and error.

    Hi Carla, I found that acupuncture and drinking more water has helped with this uncomfortable problem.

    Hi All

    Ok morning sickness officially got me this morning at 4am, my back and neck were aching so much that I got up and had a shower then started being sick and I've felt queezy all day. I have eaten ... very cautiously though and I'm so tired.

    I know it goes with the territory but just felt like saying it out loud.

    Afternoon girls!

    I am just over 9 weeks pregnant with my first baby : )

    From about 7 weeks to 9 i had what felt like 'period pain' which was very uncomfortable. It seems to have gone now though. I have very sore boobs (i am finally gonna have boobs!!), constantly sore since week 7. Week 7 was really bad as i had nausea from 7.30am until i went to bed so that has been very trying too. It seems to come and go throughout the day now so i do have a few good minutes during the day. I have been bloated since about week 6 and i am only just starting to get tired.

    So all the usual stuff!

    Wow - all of you guys seem to have a lot of morning sickness. I (so far) have only had one tiny burst of nausea that didn't result in anything except dry reaching. That was yesterday - today I had ginger ale and ate dry biscuits all morning and nothing really happened.

    I am, however, experiencing a fair bit of discomfort when I have to sit for and period of time. Really really crampy and it makes me feel ill.
    I am also really tired in the afternoons.
    How do you keep the fact that you are pregnant from your work mates and extended family when you are so ill? we aren't planning on telling anyone until 12 weeks and if I get sick I am wondering how I am going to hide it! I am currently around the 6 week point - not 100% sure

I am also burping a lot, maybe because i am drinking more water, feeling really thirsty a lot of the time. im a teacher, been on school holidays for the past 3 weeks, really dreading returning to work on monday, its gonna be tough.

    Hi All,

    My wife is currently about 7 weeks pregnant and for about the past couple of weeks has been experiencing all the usual symptoms.... tiredness, nausea, frequent toilet breaks, etc. However. the last couple of days she has not been nearly as tired and has had no nausea... but still the frequent toilet breaks.

    Back in April she has a miscarriage at 7 weeks and, I for one and a little concerned that the sudden change in some symptoms is not necessarily a good thing (although she thinks it's great) and is a sign of things going bad?

    So has anyone else also found that the tiredness and nausea is something that does come and go and come back again? Is it normal to have "good days" in amongst the bad?

    Thanks all.
