So over the first trimester

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Don't know who's with me on this, but I am so ready to be past this 1st trimester!

I am tired of hating food, of having bloat but no baby belly, of getting up to pee twice a night, and of being so anxious that something will go wrong.

Can't wait for two weeks to pass, when I will have an u/s, which should give me enough joy to get through the last of this endless trimester. Of course, come September, I'll be wondering what I was complaining about anyway right?

I'm with you. I'm almost 13 weeks now but I remember with my 1st I didn't really start feeling better until the 16th week. I'm sick of being SOOOOO tired all the time (like you're underwater all day, or something...), cranky and bitchy to my dh, then feeling guilty, having to pee all the time, and these nasty hormonal headaches! Luckily I have never experienced morning sickness - I just couldn't imagine it on top of everything else - mostly i am just anxious to start feeling better mentally and emotionally. And I guess this is a blessing in disguise, but since I never lost the baby-fat-belly-flap from my ds and c-section, I don't feel like people will be staring at me wondering if I'm pregnant! Hey, I am! I'm not just fat! hehe

Uggh. I hear ya. When I found out I was pregnant I imagined that with DD in the picture I would sail through the nine months focusing on her and not indulging myself in my own little hormonal ups and downs. Ha. Instead I am quite frankly alarmed at just how little grace I have managed to muster up in the last 5 wks ... at how the relentless nausea has absolutely worn me down.

The kicker is that DH hurt his back to the point that he hasn't even been able to work for the past 2 wks. So we've been together but just as these two sad sacks, meeting our own needs and those of DD, but not really able to take care of each other. I mean, these are not overwhelming problems; I know. Morning sickness will end and (presumably) his back will heal, but living in "the house of no fun" (well, no adult fun) for weeks on end is starting to make me sad.

I'm so looking forward to 12 weeks too. Michelle, I'm sorry to hear about your DH's back! I don't know how I'd get through these last few weeks if DH had been ill.

Thanks a lot. I really think he is starting to move out of it now ... just a little trial for our fam.

i am so with you ladies, and damn, i wish i only got up to pee twice a night, i get up like 6 times, which means i am getting very little sleep on top of being tired all the time anyway. also working full time and attempting and failing to help with housework for my poor boyfriend who is also working full time and in school full time.

i'm really ready for a vacation

Yep. I just finally got around to blogging about how horridly awful the last two months have been for us. Our house has been constantly sick since early January, including a 4-day hospital stay for my youngest. I've been sick, pregnant, and down right grumpy.

I'm ready for Spring...it means warmer weather, second trimester, the end of cold/flu season, and hopefully the beginning of what will be a nice summer. RIght???! I can pray at least!

Oh my. I am so sorry to hear that you have had to handle a little one who was not well on top of everything else. Stress on top of sickness: no bueno. I hope that wellness is creeping in to your household ... or storming in.

This week is off to a good start...two healthy boys, and I actually woke up feeling pretty good this morning! Let's hope this is the start of a new trend

Sorry to hear you are in the house of no fun, we have been floating in and out of this house too, hope your husband heals up quickly. Honestly, I feel like if the weather would just warm up so that we can go out for walks and distract ourselves all would be 100% BETTER! So I'm : for spring.

only twice? I'm jealous. I get up about once every hour or hour and a half every night, so probably five to six times per night. I get so thirsty before bed it seems and I drink down a glass of water and that likely doesn't help matters.
