Ugh, hello pregnancy symptoms!


I remember posting a couple of weeks ago panicking that my symptoms had vanished.
Well, I think I jinxed myself because theyíve hit me, hard!
This past week Iíve had nausea all night long and most of every day, bar a couple of hours in the morning.
I have pregnancy rhinitis (I had this with DD1) meaning I canít breathe through my nose, which triggers my anxiety.
The skin on my face is hot and dry and very sore, all over. Itís like a constant allergic reaction. So painful
And the exhaustion! I sleep from 7:30pm (or as soon as DD1 is asleep) until 6am, and I nap throughout the day. I feel so lazy, like I might faint if I stand up, so housework is done in short sharp bursts. Luckily I only work part time and my job is a professional car driver, so nothing that requires too much exertion.
I am crampy still and my boobs are sore, but Iím taking it all as good signs that my blueberry is growing away, making itself snug!

What are your symptoms? I so hope this Trimester flies by!

Time is dragging for me so far!!
Oh No, sounds like you are having a rough time of it. My morning sickness started yesterday, but today I've felt nauseous all day. Boobs are very sore too. All good signs though.

They sound like reassuring symptoms although they can be so draining!

Yeah it feels like itís dragging for me, too. I think itíll go faster once I get to my midwife appointment on 22nd December.
Iíll take a bucketful of symptoms if it means a healthy pregnancy. Iím so anxious Iíll miscarry, as I suspect every pregnant woman thatís experienced losses before is.
Hopefully it speeds up for us all 😁

It can be hard not to worry, the first trimester can be such a nerve wracking time but I am sure everything is just fine. Hope the time hurries up for you!

For the first 17 weeks starting from about 6 weeks I felt nauseated all day. I was extremely tired and unsociable. I remember my oh working from home to allow me to rest. I was in bed at teatime with dry biscuits and usually stayed their till morning. I also felt cut off and down in the dumps.

I'm due in under 3 weeks now and I'm up late have been for months. I'm uncomfortable now but I'd take that any day over nausea lol.

Isn't the first tri the worst??? Xx

I felt just like you have described!

I had to go to bed at the same time as my children around 7.30pm and I would sleep through until the morning but still be tired! I found the School run (a five minute walk!) exhausting.

I felt sick all day every day and then worse at night.

I think I am 12 weeks tomorrow and my symptoms seem to be easing slightly and for the first time in weeks I feel like I can function.

It is reassuring to have symptoms but there have been times I have wished I was one of the lucky ones that didn’t suffer with all of the early symptoms. At least we know it will all be worth it ��

I'm right there with you. Nausea hit me like a bus at 6 weeks and is now all day long. For some reason it is worse in the evenings for me.

I always found eating little bits of whatever I could face helped. I spent a lot of time laid down eating a dry cracker etc. Hunger made me so much worse. It's definitely a rubbish side of pregnancy nausea. Its such a relief as you head into that fourth month and feel more energetic again. The morning sickness stage is the reason I'm stopping at two. Such a difficult time especially when u have other kids to look after x
