Hope things look up for you soon!!
Amy WAHM to Elle 3/2/2004, Meadow 12/02/2006, Azaliah 4/09/2009, and Olive 09/23/2011. I have been married to my husband Bill since 2/22/03.....
I miss food so much I actually dream about it! But when I am awake I do not want to eat anything!
Anyhow, to all, and come on second trimester!!!!
constant (CONSTANT) nausea, constipation, extreme exhaustion.
i'm supposed to be finishing up my dissertation this month. i'm at the very end of a loooooooong 8 year road and this hit me like a mack truck and i don't know if i'll be able to finish.
so yeah, i'm miserable. you're not alone.
Mama to DS 2/22/06 and DS 3/27/09 :
yes. i'm on #3 and feeling like absolute fucking crap. pardon the potty mouth. but it's how i feel. just isn't strong enough without the f-bomb in there.
And WHY do people say it is GOOD to feel sick??? With my DS when I told people they would say that was good, that means you are 'really pregnant' or something. Is there any truth to this??? I havent seen the mw yet or anything (am not due till 4/28) so I am still skeptical that there is a live baby in me till I see or hear a heartbeat and there fore I am not telling anyone. Which is hard when I feel like this!! BLAH!
Oh Yeah.... How many times did I fall asleep on the couch today? Two times and I also fell asleep on the couch at 8 last night.
It's pathetic. DH thinks I'm depressed, I'm only depressed because I have no freakin' energy.
The house is a total disaster. I'm suppose to start homeschooling my kindergartener soon. Let's see, he was in jammies until 3 playing with legos.
Luckily both kids have been really good, playing together well and staying out of trouble when I fall asleep.
This is my third pregnancy as well. Right now I'm a little worried I'm anemic, I really don't remember the fatigue being this awful.
I did read that increased fatigue and m/s are signs of a "good pregnancy," ie. correlate with reduced rates of miscarriage. Also, Dr. Sears repeats in his book, "The sicker the mother, the better the outcome," so that is where that comes from.
I also don't remember being THIS exhausted, and I'm assuming I'm anemic, since I was before. My midwife recommended a good iron prenatal called Hema-Plex, with 85mg of elemental iron, and liquid chlorophyll. I'll post as to how it affects my energy levels.
I'm so glad I'm not alone.
