    Uhg I can't handle this anymore. I feel so useless! I spend all day in bed napping and trying not to vomit. My poor kids! They must feel so ignored. If the ms would just go away I could push through being tired but as it is my house is a total gross mess! Please tell me this won't last much longer :( my last pregnancy was 6 years ago so I don't remember when I usually feel better. Stupid pregnancy hormones are making me want to cry.
    I am super happy I'm pregnant, so I know I don't have much room to complain. All you ladies who don't have ms, you are so lucky lol :)

    I hate to say it but I hate being pregnant. Morning sickness (or in my case, all day sickness) is starting to take its toll on me. I really hope what everyone says is true and it goes away after the first trimester. I hate HATE throwing up. Evenings are my worse. I wish I could just sleep away the next 4 weeks.

    I hear ya. I'm so sick and tired all day, and I feel like I'm ignoring my son. He's a very active one too. DH has been taking over a lot, but he is getting worn out and I feel bad! All I feel like I do is sleep or eat (or not eat) and I get out of breath from doing the slightest things. I didn't have MS last time, and I don't remember feeling this tired... so I honestly don't know when it's going to get better! I'm just counting on the fact that this will just last through the first tri. Hopefully some other ladies will give us some insight on this!

    Same here.. feeling sorry for myself and I know there are weeks of it left. I remember mine letting up just a bit at 10 weeks and being pretty much all gone by 12, with some bad days here and there until 14 weeks.

    I've been feeling pretty crummy too. Bought myself some ginger pills today and they did a wonder! Whenever I start feeling sick, I pop one and feel much better!

    I bring hope! My symptoms (especially the awful nausea) have now dispersed and Im feeling pretty human again. I think its true that they get better towards end of first tri. Hope you all feel better soon (and hope my symptoms dont come back!) xx

    I had terrible all day nausea and could sleep throughout the day starting at around 6 weeks. I also couldn't cook for about a month as everything made me sick to my stomach. I started feeling better on odd days last week which was the end of week 9 for me. I am now 11 weeks and even though have thrown up my entire lunch the constant nausea have greatly subsided and I do have more energy. Hope you'll feel better soon x

    My nausea passed around 9 weeks but I generally don't start feeling human again until around 16 weeks....I think....as it's been 4 years for me!

    Have you tried Ginger Ale? I was eating wintergreen mints when I didn't feel well and those worked great for me. I hope you find some relief soon. As for the tired part, I'm still exhausted...not sure when that let's up....if ever!

    I feel sorry for you all and I feel sorry for myself. Don't get me wrong though, I love being pregnant, I just want to skip all this fatigue. I'm SO SO tired. Nausea is not so much, just a bit in the evening and getting better than few weeks ago. But I feel I'm tired all the time. The house is a mess, my kids have a really boring mom and I feel guilty for the whole thing. I hope I will feel better in few weeks.

    Good luck to you all.

    So far I haven't thrown up...I feel like I'm going to all the time though. I almost wish I would throw up because I remember feeling a little better after I did with my first two pregnancies. My third and this one it's just been constant nausea all day. I'm attempting a big grocery shopping trip today while my kids are at school...I hope I feel well enough!

    Oh since I'm ranting I might as well throw another one out there, I'm so sick of saltines! Lol.

    * I've tried every home remedy I can ..I currently take unisom and b6 and it helps a little. I left a message to my dr yesterday about wanting something else for ms and I'm waiting for a call back*

    OMG I will never eat another saltine again! I actually used to love them, especially with a little butter. Now I absolutely despise them! Have you tried toasted bagels? They have been a life saver for me! I can't even keep toast down sometimes (though I can keep down a grilled cheese sandwich, makes no sense) but the bagels haven't failed me yet!

    I am I the "I hate being pregnant" boat. HG here and had it with my first until I delivered. I am starting to find myself getting miffed at other pregnant women that I see that have bellies and look beautiful and can eat. I am never going to experience that. And I am so tired of everyone asking me how I am doing. I am tired of everyone trying to fix me. And if one more person asks me if I have tried crackers I might punch them I the face. Sorry. Having a bad day. Have a midwife appt this afternoon which I just want to skip because I have lost another 3 lbs and I don't feel like hearing how I can't lose anymore weight. Ugh...is it June yet?

    spidey - I'm going to have to try Chex! I love dry cereal. Never even thought it might sit well in my stomach. I'm willing to try anything!

    arlosmama - I feel like I have no room to complain when there's ladies like you who have it a million times worse than I do. Your cracker comment made me lol :) I get tired of people telling me what I should eat. I don't mind suggestions when I ask but if they've never had ms before, I don't want their opinion. My mom was like that when she came to visit. She never had a day of morning sickness with my brother and I so I didn't want to hear it - especially because she kept reminding me of that fact!

    Don't ever feel bad about complaining. This sucks for everyone. And I try to remember what is easy for me may be difficult for someone else and vice versa. I feel like if you feel like garbage during your pregnancy then you feel like garbage. No matter how extreme. I am just having one of those "boo hoo feel sorry for myself" days. Blew off work and haven't left my bed yet. All of us deserve to have a nice glowing enjoyable memorable pregnancy at some point!

    Feel well ladies!
