this is rediculous!

I know that pregnancy takes a lot out of you, but oh my goodness am I nauseous and exhausted! I had these symptoms with my 2 girls, but never to this extreame. I literally get out of bed and want to just go right back to bed. Dark circles under my eyes and I am so pale. Anyone ever go through this before as well.

  • Poor sweetie! I was like that for two months with my DD. I tried to eat lots of whole grains and fruit whenever I wasn't throwing up, that helped me with my energy level. It will pass!

  • My third pregnancy also took a HUGE toll on my body I barely functioned. Of course the docs would say I needed to eat healthier things and get more sleep and that I was tired due to being anemic. I think the pregnancy is much harder on our bodies at this point due to our age, and the toll the other pegnancies were on our body.

  • I could have slept through my whole pregnancy. Except when I had to throw up. I was exhausted and sick the whole time. Sorry =(

  • I'm sorry. I'm 6 weeks, and morning sickness is totally kicking my butt.

  • I had morning sickness for the first 4 months, tired the ENTIRE time!!! It stinks, but just get as much rest as possible, you'll get through it!

  • Sorry, but I was kind of relieved to read your question... I was hoping I was not the only one! I'm about 4 months pregnant with my 3rd. I have a 4 yr old and a 1 yr old... basically my kids are all going to be about 2 years apart. I seriously feel like this baby is sucking whatever nutrients I had left in my body. I feel so tired allllll the time. I'm finally getting over my morning sickness since I'm now in my 2nd trimester, but I feel so exhausted. I eat healthy and often to try to keep my energy but midday till I go to bed I feel really dizzy and weak. This is something I'm going to let my doctor know about at my next appointment because I don't know what else to do. I really do think it's because of the prior pregnancies. Good luck to you and me!
