KoiKove:  lol I forgot how awful it was when I agreed to #2! Now I’m thinking I’m done after this (DH wants 4 and I was on board until this pregnancy!)

PSUgirl08:  just want to echo, it’s 100% normal. It’s like a 3-4 month hangover. The good news is you’re almost done!

I’m 17 weeks and I am still feeling crappy. At 11 weeks I asked my doctor for a prescription which worked really well. ive been trying to get off of it because everyone assured me my symptoms would improve in second trimester but they haven’t. if I don’t take the antinausea meds I am a mess. I’ve come to accept that I will probably need to take the meds throughout the pregnancy. I hope your symptoms let up soon. They seem to for most women between 12-14 weeks.

I feel the same exact way! I’m 10 weeks and I’ve been nauseous everyday, somestimes no appetite and always tired. Boobs still hurt too. My doctor said it should go away after the first trimester. I’m really hoping that’s true! Good luck to u and hope u feel better soon 🙂

PSUgirl08:  completely normal but I will tell you for some it gets way better at 3mo and others (like me) not so much. My MS started BAD at around 7w and didnt let up until 18w :'( it was awful. I was so nauseated and had bad headaches, and food aversions…I just wanted to stay in bed 24/7. Hopefully things get better for you soon!

That’s exactly how I felt in the first trimester of my second pregnanacy. So chronically tired I could never stand up in the shower long enough to wash my hair. I would have happlily spent the first 4 months in bed but then it did get a lot better so hopefully it will for you too. 

After my second pregnanacy I revised my desired family size down from 3 kids to 2!
