  • aw sorry. i was super exhausted the first trimester. i wanted to go to bed at 6 and sleep until 8! i would get dizzy sometimes but not too bad. i hope you feel better soon!

  • yeah, it's definately normal. With my first one, I thought I had the flu before I had even missed a period. I was throwing up, exhausted, headaches, the works. It lasted for about the first 3 months, every single day. But then one day, I got up and felt wonderful! No more morning sickness, it was great. With my second, I didn't have any morning sickness, but I got dizzy all the time. I was afraid to drive anywhere because it got so bad. But again, after the first trimester, things got better. Hopefully, it won't last through the whole pregnancy for you. Good luck!

  • I was always worried about my dizziness, but it is normal. Just walk slow and if you need to hold on to something. I came really close to passing out several times.
