    With my last pregnancy I was sad and depressed for the whole 1st trimester even though my baby was very much wanted. And now I'm going through the same thing..probably because I'm feeling very crappy and sluggish and hormonal. I really hate the 1st trimester! Does anyone else feel like this or is it just me?

    Yes! Absolutely want the 1st tri to be over! While we so very much want this baby - I found the last two months to be extremely difficult. The exhaustion, migraines, & morning sickness sapped all of my usual joy in life - also, not telling anyone was difficult too... All of my old loves, morning coffee, wine, running, hanging out w/friends were gone... I had zero energy for working out & socializing - coffee & wine sounded horrible (I guess that was a good thing). Even food was just a necessity.

    Yet the whole time I felt that I should be savoring this pregnancy & not just moaning about feeling sorry for myself.

    ...but the good news is that it appears it is really true - the placenta is kicking in & now I'm on the path to feeling human again... so looking forward to the 2nd tri!

    Yeah I've been pretty depressed, and since I already had depression before it's even worse now. But physically I feel fine.

    I'm pretty lucky and my symptoms haven't been too unbearable but I totally agree. From a worry standpoint I just want to get to the 2nd tri and it seems like it's taking FOREVER. I'm hoping the symptoms that I do have with lighten up a bit too...

    Yes, and now I have had a partial placental abruption, so I am just praying it reattaches and I have no problems. :(

    Yes, 1st tri is the worst! All the waiting and worrying, the sickness/headaches/exhaustion... no more, please! I will be more than happy to leave this trimester behind.

    Yes! I am in total agreement. I am on pins and needles AND I just want to get to the stage where I can tell people and not have to come up with excuses for m/s. I feel guilty even posting this, though- I feel like I am lucky to even get this far.

    I feel the same way too! I hate being sick all the time and this pregnancy seems so much worse than the first (probably because the 1st time I had nothing to do BUT be pregnant now I have a baby and a stupid job haha) good news is we soon forget about the bad stuff:) To be honest I do not EVER remember being this sick with my daughter and my husband assures me I was just as bad lol

    It doesn't seem real yet. The only symptom I have is sore boobs. DH says I've been acting like a b-word and very moody. I am not sure if it is hormones or just stress of waiting until 12 wks when we can finally have PROOF on the ultrasound! I have told a few close family and friends, and they are so peppy and excited and I am much more subdued... I'm happy but very, very cautious. Most people just don't understand why I am not jumping around with excitement, but I am just worried and I do feel like I am just "a little bit pregnant." I think once I have a picture in hand at 12 weeks I will be able to act really excited and believe this is really happening.
