Anyone else feeling like constant crap?

Morning sickness is 24/7, nonstop, super exhaustion, no motivation, funny taste in my mouth and the list goes on.... I remember with DD#1 I was sick as a dog, couldnt hold down water - DD#2 it wasnt so bad - morning sickness here and there but nothing too bad... this pregnancy its non stop - no break from feeling like crap. Just wondered if anyone else is having a rough time as well? I am trying not to have too much self pity but I will be honest, I am not doing too well with it LOL I am going to ask the doctor next week when I go in if I can get something for the nausea because I am super unproductive and its hard to even fake it at work. I just want to hibernate until the first trimester is over

Ditto to all the symptoms you mentioned above! The nausea is constant without actually being sick. I find I have one or two good days and then one or two bad days. I enjoy the break in between! haha

My dr always recommends vitamin B6 and half a unisom once a day for nausea. Luckily I haven't been too sick but I have actually used that cure for being nausea due to being sick and it worked great.

I feel for girls that get sick like that. I am a big baby when I'm nauseous, I'd be in complete meltdown mode if it went on for more than a few weeks.

ETA: I did have more m/s when I was pregnant with my DS. My chiro gave me some natural supplements and it really helped. That's been 4 years ago so I can't remember what it was now but you might talk to a chiro about something natural if you don't want to have to take meds.

I have gone two days with no pills so far (and prior to that was down to 1 a day for the previous week instead of 4). I am not super nauseated but also do not feel well. I get super winded when I do any exertion and I just contantly feel very off and not great. If I could I would just sleep and not do anything. I really hope I am through this phase soon. With DS I was likely equally sick but it is harder to handle with an 18 month old who is up 1-3 times every night. I remember feeling great after trimester 1 last time so I am really looking forward.

I have been really tired. I can pretty much fall asleep at any point if I sit still long enough. I think the progestin is making me extra tired.

I have been nauseous 24/7 but no throwing up. I have had alot of cramping. Turns out they think I have a kidney stone. Sad Fun.

I totally jinxed myself yesterday with my post above. I spent the better part of an hour last night throwing up the entire days worth of food just before bed. It was horrible. DH was really sweet about it and just looked really sad when I came out and rubbed my back while I fell asleep. that SUCKED!!!

Sorry for everyoner that has been feeling so crappy, it is hard. I hope you all get some relief soon.

My nausea is mild to moderate most days so I can't complain too much in that regard. My exhaustion on the other hand gets extreme some days. Like Siandra mentioned, I can fall asleep pretty much anytime. It hits extra hard in the middle of the day. I am sooooo lucky that my kids play well independently, taking care of 2 toddlers when you are fighting to stay awake is hard. My house is a disaster, luckily DH has been really helpful when he comes home. I hate feeling so useless. I can't wait until the 2nd trimester, it really is wonderful!

That is also what's kicking my butt more than anything. I sit down for a bit and I immediately want to close my eyes and drift off. I am sooooooooooo lucky that my LO's are taking afternoon naps finally, at the same time even! Right now they are sleeping and while I should be napping what I need most times more than anything is to just sit here and not move. We're in the middle of remodeling a house so the evenings when I feel even worse is when DH is working on the remodel. I got my BFP the day we moved in. As happy as I was to get the BFP, the timing couldn't have been worse (well, it probably could've been because things can ALWAYS be worse). I feel really bad too because when I'm tired, I'm very very snappy. My poor DS has been paying the price. I've had to put myself in time out more so than him lately because my attitude just flat out sucks dealing with a 3 year old and exhaustion.
