After a previous miscarriage and 9 months of trying to get a second BFP I am glad to be pregnant, don't get me wrong. But that's not to say I am enjoying it one bit. The constant tiredness is just so draining and I feel so useless all the time because I don't have the energy to do anything. The nausea and sickness which seems to come and go will suddenly catch me by surprising making me dash to the bathroom - vomiting so hard that my insides start to hurt after a while. Aside from the tiredness and sickness I feel so ugly to the point that I feel I've lost confidence in myself. My hair is dull and I seem to gain a few new spots on my face every day - I never even had skin as bad as this when I was a teenager! And I guess the reason I am having a whinge on here is because I know a lot of you are are in the same boat and it's freakin' hard right now. We haven't told anyone about the pregnancy yet (waiting until after our scan in 2 weeks) so keeping it together and acting normal all the time is so frustrating. I really hope 2nd tri is all that it's cracked up to be as I'm not sure how I'll cope with several more months of this. I want to feel ecstatic about my pregnancy but at the moment any good or exciting feelings are hard to muster and I feel terribly guilty about this. This is so much harder than I ever thought it would be.
