Well, you’ve come to the right place!  Before I even knew I was pregnant I had a total emotional breakdown… over nothing.  I think DH though I had gone off the deep end.  After that, not one symptom other than being exhausted.

Fast forward 20 weeks (I’m 26 weeks now) and I have the joys of pregnancy induced carpal tunnel… can barely ever feel my fingertips anymore… wake up 5151658161 times a night not being able to feel my arms.  Heartburn is also fantastic… nothing like feeling your chest on fire for most of the day. 

It’s not glamourous like they show in the movies… at all.  And I don’t know when that whole “glow” thing comes around, but it hasn’t hit me yet.  I just keep thinking about the prize at the end… and somehow it makes me not care about all the shenanigans going on with my body. πŸ™‚

Honestly I’m telling this baby to just simply bring it on!  As long as it stays healthy and growing then I’ll be a very happy camper with whatever he or she throws at me.  I know it’s not fun at times, but having gone through both infertility and multiple miscarriages, I just remember that I could be going through another miscarriage or another month of wondering what the heck is wrong with my body.  πŸ˜‰

Um yes. I am feeling incredibly snippy and I’m sure I am just lovely to be around. I swear if I click on one more post that says preggy I am going to lose it. P-R-E-G-N-A-N-T.  Not preggers, preggo, preggy or whatever else cutesy- it’s called being pregnant. I have no idea why, but I am really anal about that.

@mixtapehearts:  +100.  Pregnant is not a difficut word.  And while I’m at it, “we” are not pregnant.  “We” might be expecting a baby but only one of us is pregnant.

~ In my third trimester and excrutiating mid back pain is making me crazy.

@Mrs Hedgehog:  So sorry you are feeling this way!! I totally know how you feel – and I feel horrible for being whiny/not feeling good/being upset about all of this when we wanted this so bad and I was the one who wanted to get preggers first. I actually felt so bad last night I told Destination Wedding “I changed my mind, you can have all the rest of the babies” She keeps telling me I’m not that bad…but I don’t know how much longer she can take of a wife that lays on the couch nauseous and with a headache all evening and tosses and turns all night

@RahlyRah:  I am seriously hoping I am like you…I just keep thinking, “get through 12 weeks and you’ll feel better”

It’s funny b/c then when I feel good I get nervous that something is wrong…god, if i could just be happy one way or the other πŸ™‚

I’m the queen of bitching right now haha. I’m nearly 20 weeks and have had severe morning sickness the whole time. Not enough to be in the hospital thank god, but close on several occasions. πŸ™ It’s god awful. I can say I haven’t enjoyed any moment of my pregnancy thus far. My first ultrasound was cool, I already love my baby so much- BUT- I feel so gosh sick all the time it stifles any other emotion right now. πŸ™ 

I feel you! It’s okay to vent and bitch. I apologize to hubby for doing this nearly on a daily basis- but it’s a need. You need to be able to talk and get it out there even if you feel like a broken record at times. Your body is going through a lot! I feel a lot of people don’t realize how god-awful pregnancy can be for some women- it can totaly be 9 months of feeling sick as a dog. 

You’re not alone. Big hugs! For me weeks 9-now were the worst so I def. feel you on the 10 week mark. It hasn’t gotten better but I’ve been managing it better. It’s so easy to have breakdowns when you feel like you have the stomach flu for 5 months straight and no end in sight. πŸ™ I’ve been taking comfort in little things: ice cream, soft pillows and netflix mostly. Can’t wait to pop this baby out so I can be a sane person again. (hopefully lol)

@mixtapehearts:  Fist bump. I hate the words preg, preggers, preggy, preggo, etc. Someone referred to me as “preggified” this morning, and if looks could kill her funeral would be tomorrow.

My husband made the mistake of telling me he wished I loved being pregnant. Uhh, I wish I did too but instead I’ve thrown up so hard the last 20 weeks that I’ve popped blood vessels in my face, I sweat like a whore in church, I’m constantly congested, I can’t poop, zero foods sound good but I’m always hungry, people always comment on my size or try to touch me, and I’m hormonal and I’m angry and/or crying at the drop of a hat. What’s not to love about being pregnant?!

That being said, I am beyond excited for our little guy to get here. Hopefully he’ll make me forget all about it…but not to the point where I get knocked up again πŸ˜‰

 haha THIS! You just described what it’s been like for me as well. I’m also in the never-again club for getting knocked up. Never. Never never. Even hubby said he doesn’t want to get me pregnant again. 

Isn’t breaking blood vessels the best? I look like I’m recovering from some kind of plague haha

@FutureMrsAch:  OMG I literally laughed so hard at that! I hate this having to pee all the time, I’ve been pretty close a few times where I had to pee so bad stood up and baby did a little dance! I’ve also come to the realization if I have to sneeze and havent peed yet I’m screwed!!! My DH likes to call me pissy pants now he thinks its a hoot I think its hell I’m 22 and feel like I have the bladder of a 70 year old!

@Mrs Hedgehog:  First trimester is really tough. The morning sickness was awful. I got it at night. I’d wake up every hour to feel like I was going to vomit, just to sit in the bathroom feeling like crap, overheating, and nothing else going on. The only place I felt comfortable was naked in the bathtub (with or without water, doesn’t matter). Then because I didn’t get any sleep, I felt like crap and nauseous all day. It was lovely. After about 5 days of that garbage, I caved and took the morning sickness drugs and the sun was shining again. Thankfully I only had to take them for about 5 weeks and then I didn’t need them anymore.

Second trimester was far easier. And I have to say, third trimester is kicking my ass!!! I am tired, uncomfortable, can’t reach my toes, can barely reach to wipe my own butt (I’ve never wished for a bidet until now!), peed myself once (high five MrsArch!), have wicked heartburn at night so I have to sleep sitting up at times, and did I mention I was tired? And I’m supposed to be preparing for the baby. Screw that I’m taking a nap.

I’d like to think that overall, I’m a pretty happy pregnant lady, but jeez, if I want to sit on my butt and watch Dr Phil because I’m too tired to empty the dishwasher, damn straight that’s what I’m going to do right now. I never understood before being pregnant myself just how hard this is on you. I also realize that my friends who haven’t been pregnant don’t get it either, so I try to give them some leeway.

It’ll get better for you, but you’ll still have bad days and that’s totally fine. Your body is going through SO much right now. Be hormonal. Be tired. Be cranky. Just remember to do what you need to to make sure that your needs are being met, whether that’s something simple like a bath when your back hurts, ice cream when you’re craving it, or going to bed at 8pm. Do it.

Thanks so much for your post cos its so liberating, and you are right – Being PG really does suck. I’m sorry but it does (getting a baby doesn’t of course). I think that that is one of the biggest truth omissions in life , as noone ever told me it was this unpleasant (or perhaps when baby is here women truly do forget?). I am sick and tired off all the cant do’s and should do’s and I’m just 18w. Really dreading the next months as it seems that’s when the shit truly hits the fan with the rest of the unpleasantries. I had pretty bad MS so perhaps I’m ready for it though?!

I think we just have to take it a day at a time, brace ourselves and pray! If only the fathers went thru 10% of all this!!!! Plus the emotional roller coaster, fears and anxiety! 

Best of luck to us all!!

I am only a little over 6 weeks, and already my nausea is so bad that even the medicine I finally caved and took doesn’t even get rid of it, just takes the edge off a little.  I am sure I will be barfing my brains out soon.  It is the worst feeling ever, like when I drink too much alcohol and have to puke–that kind of sick ALL.DAY.LONG. My mom and sister had MS well into their 2nd trimesters (22-24 weeks until it ended).  I don’t know if I can do this for 5 months :'( !!!

If you can, look into finding a pregnant women’s group near you.  They are usually free and you can go in and ask questions and just plain bitch about how sucky you feel.  It’s a judgement free zone and everyone knows just what you are going through.  It was great to have support through my pregnancy and I even made a few good friends through the group and now we have little ones who will be friends too πŸ™‚
