Is anyone else hitting the 8 week mark and starting to pull out of the exhaustion haze and nausea? I seriously am starting to remember why I love being pregnant because I feel so fabulous.

I started feeling bad this pregnancy as soon as I got my BFP-like that day I just started feeling queasy. I also felt like I had 1000 lb weights on me, now it's like all that has just been lifted. Weeks 6-7 were the worst, I just felt like dog doo. I hit 8 and it's like a light came on, I'm almost feeling normal(if there is such a thing, ).
Last pregnancy I felt fabulous, and I loved being pregnant so much. I'm hoping the crappy feeling lets up this time soon, because I want to enjoy pregnancy again!
I feel like I've spent so much of my pregnancies and mothering thinking, geez, we are still in the dark ages on all of this! I guess because only moms know how it is and moms are too busy to do cutting edge research. :

My back is killing me today though, I had major pain with DD in my sacrum so I'm not surprised it's happening again.
I wanted to make beef stew, but I just can't do it. I keep looking at the little 1/2 roast I was going to cut and can't even bear to think about cutting it. I just only want sub sandwiches, salad and vegetarian food. We had spaghetti last night which was pretty good. I just go through these aversions to cooking. I think we may be having a tofu stirfry tonight because it seems to be the only thing that seems all that appetizing.
I'm just glad that I am feeling way more energized and don't look like I am dead.
(can't sleep... working. bah!)
I can definitely see the change coming, I just feel much better. I also agree snacking is the way to go, it really does help me. It doesn't even need to be much just a small snack of crackers.
I am not quite feeling fabulous, but I can see it on the horizon. I was that woman who just felt great when pregnant before, there were other women who were just shocked at my happiness and many who said it wouldn't last through the hot-a$$ summer months, but I just loved being pg. The hot was not even bothersome. DH said we are getting an a/c unit though because our room is upstairs and is seriously oppressive when it is 90+. I just love having a big preggy belly I can show off in a bikini.
