Feeling Grim and Thought I'd Share!


Hello All,

I'm 7 + 3 today and for the last week I have felt terrible. My boobs hurt and wake me up every time I turn over in bed, I feel constantly queasy, I'm full of wind and my tummy looks as if I'm 5 months pregnant already. To top it all off I'm so tired every day at work is a struggle and I'm crying at the tiniest of things.

On the positive side, I had a scan last week and we saw the heartbeat which was amazing. All the symptoms I'm having will all be worth it in the end. I've been assured the 2nd trimester is much better...roll on 2nd trimester.

I just felt like a moan! Feel free to do the same back so I don't feel as if I'm alone. :0(

Hello!
Sorry you are feeling so bad

I had a really bad week last week. Was feeling full of cold and off work. I came back in on the Wednesday coz i thought i was better and made it all worse.

People keep telling me that the 2nd trimester is better and i hope so too. Must say that i feel much happier and better this week.

I donít want to wait until next June to have this baby thatís my problem. I want to finish work and have it NOW!!! lol!

Hugs to you and hope you feel better soon xxx

Hope you feel better soon hun, and no your not alone... I too have the problem with sore boobs and they feel like they've been severed every time I roll over at night!
Also feel so queasy all the time, I'm in a catch 22, I'm starving, but the very thought of food, no matter what it is makes me feel sick, watching food ads on tv makes me feel sick and cooking food makes me feel sick, yet I want to eat so much!!
I'm actually sat here with a bowl of noodles, desperately wanting to eat them, but the smell is making me feel so ill!!
I've actually had a week off work because of how bad I feel and i'm not sure if I can push it to another week because I don't want them to sack me! Although they do know I am pregnant and i've been told your employer can't sack you if you're off due to pregnancy ailments! So depending on how I feel today makes the decision for me about whether i'll be going into work for the rest of the week!

Thanks guys. Its so nice to know I'm not on my own. I feel quite lonely at the moment because I'm not telling anyone yet so can't have a moan. My OH is great and Mum is being very supportive which is great though.

I'm going to tell my boss tomorrow to see if I can do some reduced hours or work from home whilst I'm feeling pants. I think he may suspect already but I'll formalise it and see what they can do for me. Fingers crossed!

By the way, with your sore boobs - do they feel like someone is sticking knives in them if you turn over or get out of bed? This is way more than normal period soreness!

I felt exactly the same. It was awful I thought it was never going to end and got really upset a few times. You do feel alone too !

I am now on week 10 and feel a lot better. I am able to eat now which for 3 weeks i coudln't really. It is awful I cried everyday as all i wanted to do was eat. AND THE WIND its terrible. I bloated really badly and it has started to subside this week but starting with a tiny bump now.

i was shattered not matter how long I slept for. If you can take a few days off work I did and it made all the difference.

I know its hard but it will go soon

take care x

Aww thanks everyone. Only 4.5 weeks until the magic 12 weeks and I'll hopefully feel better then. The bloating is driving me mad, half way through the day I have to unbutton my trousers! I have weighed myself though and I'm exactly the same as before I found out I was pregnant.
