  • Yep! That sounds about right! The first trimester can be a real beeeoch! LOL seriously! I felt just like I had the flu. After 10 weeks...I thought it must be something more serious than morning sickness,,,but it wasn't . The good news is...the second trimester is filled with extra energy and good mood hormones...Soooo hang in there! ;)

  • I never felt this horrible with my daughter, I literally want to be admitted to the hospital I feel so crappy. This can't be normal.

  • I was one of those annoying people that didn't get sick at all.

  • I can honestly say that my 2nd pregnancy is HELL compared to my first.
    My first was no walk in the park either, but not THAT bad.
    This time, I've cried myself to sleep almost every day. And I'm 35 weeks. I was non-functioning pretty much for my entire first trimester. I was in such horrible shape, I got fired from my job (only time I've ever been fired in my life)....I pretty much had to FORCE myself to meet my DD's basic needs while DH was at work.
    Its the worst I've ever felt in my entire life. PERIOD.
    And everything was "fine" as in I have no "medical issues" at all......

  • Oh and also, I puked all day everyday. To the point of puking up stomach acid...Then dry heaving EVERY DAY. I started out the pregnancy at 147. I'm 35 weeks and 152 now.

  • I'm not trying to throw a pity party for me by any means...I'm just telling you that what you are feeling is AWFUL, HORRIBLE, TERRIBLE, NO GOOD and I totally sympathize. But, it's also a variation of "normal" and your doc or midwife will probably tell you to "live with it" pretty much. It sucks so bad, and I'm so sorry...but that's life, I guess?
