Topic: First Trimester Woes
I just need to whine... and I know there are folks here who will understand. I hate the first trimester. That makes me feel horrible, beacause this is what we wanted, but really, it's the end result that matters! This is my fourth pregnancy, and each just seems to get worse when it comes to symptoms.
I know this too shall pass, I know "queasy Momma means healthy baby" (or at least thats what I tell myself) but this is ridiculous! I'm nauseous 24/7. I'm lightheaded most of the time. When I stand up from a seated position my head swims. I'm exhausted all the time, to the point of falling asleep when I sit down to nurse Ivy, and not knowing when Tim comes to bed after me because I'm out cold. What tastes good yesterday makes me throw up today. I'm already on the mircale drug for morning sickness, and it just makes me feel like barfing instead of actualyl doing it, *most* of the time. Oh, andI can feel my uterus, and it's WEIRD. If this babe did not implant on the left side I will be shocked, because I have weird pressure like twingy "pain" on the just-left-of-centre side of my already tight and heavy feeling uterus all.day.long.
No point to this rant, I just needed to vent a bit. I don't like complaining to people in my real life, because I don't like hearing "well you chose to get pregnant again". I know that, but I chose to get pregnant again because we wanted another child in our family, not because I love being sick all day, every day, for months on end. Blah!
