Can't wait for 2nd T!!!

be warned... vent coming

I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired. My husband just keeps looking at me saying 'you look miserable'. Because I am! I'm exhausted. My body aches. Sometimes I'm ravenous and eat like a mad woman, then am sick to my stomach. Then other times I can't even make myeslf eat dinner at all. I'm bloated and nothing fits. It's not quite warm enough for my summer dresses... so I'm stuck trying to make non-pg jeans with a belly band work, but they are still uncomfortable. Also, I'm super stressed out at work. My project is ending in September. I don't want to wait until then to get a new job at my company though because who is going to want to hire someone that is 7mo pregnant. But none of the jobs out there are interesting to me. Ugh.

Whew. Rant over. Feel free to join in with your own rant/vent!

I completely understand what you are going through, I don't remember being this tired or feeling this sick with any of my other pregnancies. My other ones were a breeze. This one I can sleep 8 hours get up and be awake for 3 hours and take a nap for a few hours. My fiance doesn't quite get it hopefully once I'm in my 2nd trimester I will get some energy back. School is kicking my butt, I lost all motivation to do my work and almost failed my whole semester. I have one assignment left of this semester and I get a 3 week break. I hate being so emotional I can't watch tv without crying. Oh and my biggest rant is I had to sign up for state insurance and it is taking forever to get anything accomplished so I still haven't gone to the doctor for my first visit and can't even schedule one that is a big frustration right now. I am happy I qualify for it but it has been a month since I applied for it and I would like to see a doctor some time soon. Ok my rant is over thanks for letting me vent!!!

I feel you! Things haven't got as bad for me yet as they were with DD with the exhaustion and ms but having a kid makes it so much harder! The ms is hitting hard here and I can't imagine having deadlines. I work when I feel like it these days which I know is a huge blessing. The stress of work can be exhausting. I hope you get some energy back soon!

I can completely relate, this pg has been a complete turn around from my 1st. With DS I had no ms and felt great my entire pregnancy, this time I feel miserable, I've been having really bad headaches, and horrible ms (I lost 10 lbs this month!). I only have 2 weeks until the second trimester so I really hope it stops then.

I am sorry, I know!. There was a couple times I just broke down crying in front of dh and the kids and saying I am so sick of feeling like this. Nothing fits here and instead of feeling pregnant I just feel like a big ole bloated belly where nothing fits either. I did not lose weight I felt like I had to eat all the time to help me feel better though it never lasted long.

I did however just score a huge box of maternity clothes on craiglsit in my perfect size for $130....from GAP, Penneys, Old Navy...etc The pants all seem to be the perfect size, I couldn't even go through everything that was in it last night. Perfect since this is my last pregnancy and I really did not want to spend major bucks on clothes. Little bit of everything in there. The old thing missing was jeans. Even dresses, one of which I might where next weekend to a wedding already.

I can relate too. With my other two pregnancy's I just had morning sickness in the mornings this one I have been feeling sick all day long. I am also super emotional too and have been crying at news on the radio in the car in the mornings.

I hate to burst ur bubble, but it is possible to have m/s the whole 9 months.... I had that with #3. It's been rough in my house with m/s. Zoferen is my best friend. I have already lost 3 lbs. Dr. Wants me to go to a nutritionist, but they are only there on fridays. I get to see the kidney specialist on the 24, then 13 week u/s and testing on June 4th.

Wow, I'm feeling really lucky! I'm not really feeling much symptoms wise and what I do get is actually pretty mild. I don't like the feeling but I can roll with it and get other stuff done and still get my runs/exercise in. Buuutttt, it's a good thing we have a cleaning service come every two weeks otherwise my house would be a mess cause I am super tired most days.

Hope you ladies can get some relief soon!

Kristy, I wish I could 'like' this post. I am super duper sensitive to ALL smells and have been having all day nausea. It makes me miserable. I really feel for you working mamas experiencing this. You deserve a medal!
