VENT: Anybody else tired of feeling like crap all the time?

First off a little disclaimer; I know I could have it much much worse, I know women who do have it much much worse, but I can complain too damn it! OK I'm 17 weeks, I was sick for the first 14 weeks so at least that's gone. I don't have any horrible symptoms going on, but that ridiculously tired sluggish/BLAH feeling just isn't going away. With my other two I got that great second trimester energy boost and I'm not getting it this time. I just feel like a big blob of poo all the time. I'm super tired and I just have no motivation. It's nothing horrible like I said, but I just want to feel normal. I want to be enjoying this and I'm just not. Is yuck a good descriptive for how I feel? I think so:)- So I just wanted to vent a little, so here's everybody's chance to either vent along with me or tell me I'm being silly cause you have it way worse:) Either way... let's hear it.

  • Yes, I TOTALLY feel you! I have been crying all morning because I am SOOOOO sick of the morning sickness that lasts all day! I am 20 weeks 3 days and shouldnt feel like this anymore:( I dont know how much more I can handle of feeling (and getting) sick before I have an emotional breakdown

  • I feel your pain, I haven't felt right in 36 weeks lol

    I had horrendous morning sickness and menstrual-like cramps for the first 17 weeks of pregnancy. Then I started waking up feeling as though I'd been run over my a semi (that's been from 16 weeks to now at 36 weeks) At 24 weeks I started getting morning sickness a lot and from 24 weeks to present I have puked my brains out almost daily, had explosive diarrhea at least 4 times a week and I have gall bladder issues so now I'm vomiting bile (nasty crap) I have been having BH since 29 weeks really bad and I have started cramping again but my doc says I haven't dilated much at all. Oh and I have to have non stress tests weekly and baby has failed two of them and they can't explain why.

    Dontcha love pregnancy? (:

  • I feel ya girls...I haven't been able to sleep in months due to all the back pain and hip pain. I feel like the bottom of my spine is just a big ball of tension...and I am afraid to go to a chiropractor because I don't know if my medicaid would pay for it. and baby just won't get off my hip so it is constantly in pain. I can't sit, stand, or lay for more than a few minutes before it starts hurting again. I am 32 weeks and 5 days. I hope this baby comes out on her due date....if she is going to be late like I expect her to be if she follows my family tradition, then i don't know if I could take the pain.

  • Damn it feels good to hear other people in the same boat. I feel like I'm surrounded by people saying that they feel better pregnant than any other time in thier life. All the crappiness is well worth it at least:) Thanks for posting everyone and I hope we ALL feel better.
