Hi ladies. We've just found out that I'm pregnant but my beta hcg levels are still in the lower part of positive so I'm quite early into it. Having more bloods tomorrow so hoping all is ok. I think I am two weeks in as I have been getting symptoms (nausea, fatigue, light headeness) for over a week now. Today my lower back is really sore. Has anyone else had this? Also, what did you eat for lunches in your first trimester? I am not sure what I am allowed to eat from the cafe near work! It's more of a sandwich bar really. Thank you!

Hi there, I'm a first timer too, and like you found out pretty much straight away! If you log into the Due in Group thread for your due month you'll meet a heap of other really helpful ladies who are due around the same dates.
I had a really sore lower back in fist few weeks, was sort of normal for me, but made sense why it lasted much longer then pre-AF ususally did..
Do you have to buy from your lunch bar? I'd pro be bringing lunches in with me, because from what I've read, pre-prepared salads and sandwhiches should be avoided, you have to be careful of the food temparature control and how well the salad is cleaned etc...
if the cafe buy product in from elsewhere then its even worse because you can't ask for it freshly made etc.
I've been eating a lot of rice cakes with philly and avocado, soups, or well nuked leftovers... when I can stomach the thought of a bigger meal.
Good luck over the next 8 months!

Hi there! Thanks for your reply. I think I'm going to have to be a whole lot more organised! I work on the road in marketing so it's really challenging to keep things at a regular temperature. I'm enjoying the pregnancy so far. Despite the fatigue, aches and nausea. It'll all be worth it in the end when are you due?

ooh yeah being on the road is tough, you'll need a really good esky, and make sure you're not re-using flimsy plastic water bottles then too, cos they can get warm in the car. I'm due 15 June 2014.. so 8wk 5 days today... can't wait to get passed 12 wks, these past 2 months have dragged...
I'm only sufferring mild MS, but I am really bloated and tired most days, lol, I know its all for a good cause but when my pants are uncomfy I will it to go away.

I'm sooo bloated too! My shorts won't button up! I hope it goes away because everyone will start guessing. My second bloods show that things are progressing well. Looks like I'm 4-5 weeks now. Have a dating ultrasound done in two weeks to get a better idea. Turns out I have a B12 deficiency which explains a lot of my dizziness and fatigue. As long as the little bean inside me is going ok, I'll take whatever ms throws at me! (Remind me I said that in a few weeks haha!)
