Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but a girlfriend who is also pregnant recommended I try a chat room for support. I am happily married, my husband and I married last October and as we are a bit older decided to start trying immediately. We weren't expecting to get pregnant so quickly but were overjoyed when we found out we were. A few trips to the doctor, due to what turned out to be a subchorionic hemmorhage, another visit being told our baby was dead by the obgyn only to have our baby be fine later, we made it through concerning genetic testing to get the all clear. Both my husbands and my side of the family have genetic disorders manifested in living relatives. It's been quite a roller coaster. All the while we have been trying to love our baby, take care of each other the best we can. All of these things have been difficult to weather but something neither of us were prepared for... Was the sickness, exhaustion and side effects. The first few weeks my brain just stopped functioning, I couldn't form and hold thoughts, I was losing everything and having mood swings. I also had no clue I was pregnant. The next two weeks, the smells in NYC were throwing me for a loop and making me sick. The following 3 weeks were ironically our belated honeymoon that resulted with me in bed sleeping 15 hrs a day. I could not get out of bed other than to use the restroom. I had no interest in food and barely have any now. I am down almost 20 lbs ,which normally would thrill me but not so much when I feel like I should be gaining weight. To add to the growing list, I have vertigo it came on at the beginning of the week and is persisting. I've already bumped into most of our furniture hit my head and am walking holding on to things. WHAT IS GOING ON??? Has this happened to anyone else? My husband is graduating med school and most of our friends are doctors. People seem to all be in agreement that I'm still" ok" in the realm of healthy pregnancy, which eases my mind but doesn't help me understand. I feel like I'm a huge burden now and like ppl think I'm a hypochondriac or making things up. I'm so in love with my baby, I wish I loved being pregnant but I'm miserable. Any advice?? Under normal circumstances I'm active up and about a do'er . Now I'm just in bed all the time wondering when this will all stop and what may come next?
