I've hit the 3 months mark 3 days ago and things are getting worse, so to speak.
The end of the first trimester wasn't bad. I was a bit tired but not that much and overall I couldn't complain.
I even took a job as a part time sale assistant in a little store.
However, that was not a good idea.
I've been having some early contractions (not good) as well as quite a few Braxton Hicks ( I'm really thin so I feel them strongly).
My midwife asked me to rest. And I couldn't do otherwise if I wanted to.
I'm so awfully tired I can't do anything.
I drag myself out of bed to land on the sofa and I stay there feeling like I'm having the flu or something (for the lack of energy, not the fever or anything).
When I try to actually do something, like make lunch or wash the dishes, after a few minutes I feel nauseous and I need to sit or lay down again.
The greatest part of it is that I sleep dreadfully. I have nightmares after bad dreams and so on. So when I wake up, I'm tired, not to mention freaked out, scared, sobbing or panting depending of the dream.
Any of you can relate ?
Here in France we don't do prenatal vitamins. Could I be lacking something ?
I really could do with some advice. Thank you in advance.
