I understand that and I do sympathize with her. The majority of women feel like complete crap during the first trimester, some into the second trimester, and then feel crappy again in the third trimester. It’s not fun, and I have complained as well, especially as of recently, now that I’m nearing 38 weeks and it’s super uncomfortable. Complaining is fine! But as someone who actually did deliver a baby last year, way, way, way too early due to unexplained issues, the “I’m so ready to deliver” words just irked me. I know there are other women on here that I have spoken to that have had the same thing happen.
I’m sorry it came across that way, and I’m sorry, @mrskane:
You are allowed to complain ALL you want. Pregnancy is not glamorous, and it’s not fun for the most part. But keep your eye on the end prize. It’s going to be so worth it. And when you can feel your little babe, that makes the icky first trimester experience all worth the fatique, nausea, etc.
Trust me, I was a social worker that had to leave people’s houses to go vomit because the home smelled so strong. Sea bands, snacking frequently, and Zofran helped tons.

Congrats! Just a month behind me – I’m March 5th. Hopefully since you’re heading out of the first trimester, you’ll start feeling better soon! It really is not fun! I keep saying that I’m waiting for the damn glow! I think it’s a sham though – I just feel bloated, nauseous, ugly and gross!
