Isn't It Too Soon To Be This Sick? (4w3d)

Granted, I have been having some symptoms for over a week but today was the first day were I seriously wanted to throw up or passout. If I do any sudden movements, I get dizzy or nauseous... or both. I'm grateful to have this problem but I am a little concerned that if this gets worse than what it is now, its going to make working much harder. I thought I wouldn't feel this way until at least week 6! Anyone else out there who has had morning sickness this early?

Latest symptoms to add to the previous list:
-the shakes
-feeling like I'm running a fever
-feeling like my head weighs 200lbs
-dizzy/faint
-nausea
-headaches
-I feel like I have a gallon of water in my mouth
-constant beltching

My fellow co-worker who went through IVF gave me some ginger tea which she got from the local chinese grocery store and it seemed to help with the nausea. On a side note, my co-worker had her first ultrasound at 6 1/2 weeks and it showed just one sac and one heartbeat. Her twelve week ultrasound on monday showed she is having twins! I am so excited for her!

Beta #2 is tomorrow!

Sorry that you're feeling rotten, but I guess it's a good sign!

Hang in there and eats lots of saltines!

I hope you feel better soon, I have not btdt, but I've heard taking the prenatal vitamins at night, instead of first thing in the morning, can help a little. Also, I'm confused about some math here. I've noticed that the # days post IUI (ie 18dpiui), and amount of time pregnant (ie 4w3d) don't match up. And it isn't just you, it is a whole bunch of people that have done IUI. So do you count the date since the beginning of your last period, or the day of the IUI? I'm truly not trying to start an argument here, just really curious as I have noticed this on several different SMC blogs. Just curious.

Mint tisane (caffeine-free) should help, too.

Ali: when they count your pregnancy from the first day of your last period.

So much fun, right! ;)
No its not too soon to feel ill. I remember wanting to throw up/being nauseated constantly from right around 4 weeks to like 9 weeks. Sorry :(

Your beta is going to be awesome though! Your little one is definitely snuggling in there.

Small bites of food, preg pops (somewhat) and staying asleep really helps, lol! If it gets any worse, you could ask for Zofran. I think thats how you spell it. I've heard of vitamin B6 too. I ended up just trying to tough it out. It gets easier. Hopefully your MS will let up soon!

So thrilled for you!

Hopefully early starting MS will mean early ending! It's important not to let yourself get too hungry. Drink lots of water and try to eat little snacks with lots of protein. I know that the idea of eating when you feel icky seems wrong but it usually helps. Except when it doesn't.

Hopefully the Ginger tea will help...it helped me a lot along with Ginger ale. I think feeling this sick so soon is a really good sign!

Oh, I missed your beta post--congratulations! Here's hoping for at least 234 today. ;-)

I'm sorry you're feeling so awful. Hope you feel better soon.

Good question Ali, If I count from my LMP, I would be due on March 5th but I thought that because I know I must of conceived on the day (or day after) of my last IUI, I will be due on March 3rd. I honestly don't know if that is correct or not. Maybe someone else can clear this up.
