@karmalkween:  Oh man, I hear you! I am 12 weeks and feeling….ok. Sometimes pretty normal, other times really shitty. Honestly, it helps me to exercise, just a quick bout, even a brisk walk helps. Sometimes it’s so hard to motivate because I’m so exhausted but I always feel better afterward, and it’s good for my self-esteem. I feel a lot like you described- hungry all the time but nothing really sounds good, super tired, stomach feels off, just blah and not myself. I am looking forward to the second trimester for sure!!!! Hang in there, it gets better!

Congratulations! I’m 7 weeks with my second and feeling terrible! FI has pointed out I’m not eating enough good foods, days when I’ve had a good wholefood breakfast, nuts and fruit mid morning, a steak sandwich for lunch, yogurt and fruit in the afternoon and a decent dinner then I feel great. Today I ate maybe half that and nearly passed out before dinner and felt too nauseous to eat anything. It’s really important to eat the extra calories advised, from full healthy fats whenever you can. I’m looking after our toddler as well so it is just knackering, I’ve never been so tired in my life. Hope things improve for you soon!

@karmalkween:  I felt like this a lot. I didn’t struggle too much with morning sickness, but the exhaustion has been horrible. I kept hoping it’d be better in second trimester, but I only had like a couple of weeks of a break before I started getting exhausted from being so big. It’s definitely a tough gig but it has some amazing perks like hearing baby’s heart beat, finding out the sex, and constantly feeling baby move once you can feel them! Keep your chin up, you’re doing a lot of work inside your body right now 🙂

@karmalkween:  Welcome to the life of the first trimester. I didn’t start feeling ok until 10w and I am still exhausted (though much more chipper and able to eat things) at almost 18w

@karmalkween:  aw you poor thing. It gets better! Just rest and relax and do what you have to do to get through the day. It feels like it will never end but you will get through it.

Aah the wonderful first trimester.  Its the one time in your life when its best to just tune in and listen to your body. Sleep whenever you can, eat as often as you need, you may have to push yourself to exercise but it will make you feel better, even just a walk I swear does wonders. And vent whenever you feel the need even if its only on the bee. Letting those feelings out always helped me and it comforted me to know most women feel the same. I had bad pregnancy sickness too and my rx was diclectin which I believe is similar to Zofran. It helped me to take it every morning even before getting out of bed. When I forgot to take it, I paid the price 🙁

Your body is working so hard right now so treat it as the miracle it is. You will eventually start to feel better.

Congrats and take care of yourself and the growing little being in your belly 🙂

The beginning was the worst for me, I was projectile vomiting sick for the first 18 weeks and so tired I was in bed by 6pm every day and still had to drag myself out of bed in the morning. It was terrible. Things have gotten better for me (currently 28 weeks) but I kind of just have new things to complain about, however the beginning sucked way more. Congratulations and I hope you start feeling better soon!

@karmalkween:  this was me. I couldnt move out of bed/off the sofa. I’d eat and eat just to try not to feel sick, but every night I would feel SO GROSS. I. hated. it.

But it gets better, for me it was about the 13 wk point.

@karmalkween:  I totally understand. I am lying in bed and its almost 11 a.m.I have been awake for 3 hours and have been trying to convince myself that whole time to get out of bed and do something productive. I feel queasy and exhausted. I am 6 weeks 3 days and just feel so lazy.

The first trimester is SO hard! I started feeling better at around 11 weeks, and was totally better by 13 weeks!

Exercise was the only thing that made me feel better!

And don’t worry! It gets better!
