Seriously ALL I want to do is eat every 2 hours, sleep all day and night, and pee 50,000 times a day, and occasionally vomit everything I just ate…. okay I don’t actually WANT to pee or vomit ever but still. lol
When does this extreme hunger/nausea/exhaustion end? I know the need to pee will only get worse. I can manage that if I can just get past the rest!

I found my first trimester symptoms wore off around 14-15 weeks. Second trimester was a lot better for me, although getting used to the kicks and twirls and bumps was interesting! Third trimester started wearing me down about a week before I “officially” hit the third trimester mark. I’m back to feeling exhausted most of the time and needing to pee a lot, and wanting to eat everything in sight. Every pregnancy is different though, so I hope you start feeling “normal” again soon!!

I don’t think I’m much farther along than you, but I am still starving all.the.time.
sleep hasn’t been to bad, but I think I’m just lucky.

Yup, ditto to what @babybuzz just said. I feel like I’m in my first tri all over again, but with a bigger belly. Enjoy the second trimester 🙂

@Mrs Hedgehog: I’m with you, I am only 6 weeks but it’s getting rough! I constantly want to sleep and though I am not throwing up yet, I constantly feel sick or not well. This morning was the first time I felt really good, then I had lunch and all down hill from there 🙂
From what I have researched, this should get better as we near the second trimester but some took longer and quite a few weeks into the second trimester!
This is my second, my first I didn’t even know I was pregnant and really had no symptoms…felt great with the exception of 1 week or less that really wasn’t bad at all.

I am in my second trimester (18+) and I am hungrier than ever! All I do all day is eat, prepare food, go to the bathroom, be tired, sleep, eat. That is pretty much my life. The nausea has diminished (thankyou GOD!) and now I am hungrier than ever.

Ha, it doesn’t wear off, because soon as that baby comes than the real fun of feeding diaper changes etc. My son is 15 months and he still exhausts me, especially now he is starting to walk!

I was the same way in my first trimester, all I wanted to do was sleep and eat. Now that I’m in my second trimester, I’m having some trouble sleeping here and there but mostly it’s ok and I’m not as fatigued. I’m still eating frequently but that’s also not as bad as it was. From weeks 6 – 9 or so, I HAD to eat small, frequent meals to keep the nausea away but now I can go longer.

@Mrs Hedgehog: Hey! I am just nearing the end of my first trimester and things have gotten a bit better, but aren’t totally gone just yet. There were def points where I was feeling like such a big baby, and so frustrated with myself for just like, not being able to pull it together. I think the biggest lesson I have learned is that I have NO control over how I feel. Being pregnant isn’t mind over matter – your body is making you take it easy and the only thing that you can do is just take it easy and wait it out! One of my friends said something that I found helpful about the first trimester – “you’re growing someone else’s brain in there”. What you’re doing is hard hard work, which is why you are so tired and sick! It’s not that you’re just like some wuss that can’t hack being in a delicate condition – you are growing and developing the intricate framework of a human being! After this trimester, you are just putting pounds on that little human – the first trimester is the hard stuff of development. Hang in there! It does get better, even if it doesn’t get a hundred percent perfect! And make sure you take the time to be gentle to yourself in recognition that even if you can’t see anything yet, it’s hard to make a brain and a spinal cord and hands and feet and a placenta!
