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!

Re: First Trimester Woes

Oh well we totally understand! I had pretty bad morning sickness as well and was so glad when that part of pregnancy was over! The second trimester was great! lol. I think when we complain about morning sickness people don't realize that we're actually ill constantly and not just complaining. It's not called a "sickness" for nothing! Only women who have been there can totally understand!! Hope you get some relief soon and try to take it easy!!

Re: First Trimester Woes

I can relate....and you are NOT whining. It is funny to me too to feel so happy about feeling so bad...I bought a pack of those expensive preggie pops...I can't say if they work or not because they are so sour I can't leave them in my mouth long enough...I have been forcing myself to eat the last couple days because I lost over 10 lbs last week. Actually I feel a little better when I do.

Re: First Trimester Woes

Whining and rant heard and understood 110%  hmm  I sympathize. It's miserable and I already dread it when I think of more babies. The end result is sooo worth it, but for me, if I could hibernate through that 1st trimester, I would. The sickness, along with the worrying, without the distractions of Dr apts, movements, or reassuring ultrasounds, just plain sucks. Hang in there, my friend, hopefully you get some relief in the form of a healthy 2nd trimester very soon!

After 9 yrs & 1 devastating loss, we got our BFP at 9DPO ~ and welcomed our beautiful son on Halloween! Best treat ever!!

Re: First Trimester Woes

Right there with you. hmm  This part stinks. Every day I just wait for the nausea to hit. It's so unpredictable and I have no idea when it will come and how long it will stay. It hits me in the morning, noon, evening, before bed- it has no preference! Sometimes I just hope I'll puke so it will go away. The food cravings and aversions are much stronger for me this pregnancy too. Just last night I was wanting a grilled cheese so bad it was making my mouth water thinking about it. When I actually got up to cook it, the thought of eating it made me queasy. WTH? Ali is out getting Chinese take-out for me smile I just hope I will still want it by the time she gets back!

Can we just fast forward to our beautiful bellies popping out and feeling the little angels kick?

Re: First Trimester Woes

Cocobaby - that was totally me this morning! I wanted eggs and bacon with toast...made it and by the time it was done it tasted like metal sad

Re: First Trimester Woes

LOL that was so me too... yesterday I wanted burritos... by the time they were cooked I had no desire to eat them, I wanted French Toast with fruit on it.  So today I took my family out for breakfast and got french toast with pineapple and strawberries o it... it was good, but by the time I was done eating it I was wishing I had ordered eggs instead!  I am not a Chinese food fan, but thats what I have been wanting the last few days as well... but we have no delivery in our town so I was SOL!

I totally understand the "if I could just throw up I might feel better" feeling... but sadly even when  I do vomit I don't have any relief... I have about an hour when I first get up in the morning that I feel ok-ish... and last night was the first night in a week I did not get up to vomit in the middle of the night.

Thanks for letting me whine and vent... it feels better to know I am not the only one, and that there are some people who understand that its not like I chose the constant6 nasuea and vomitting, but chose to expand my family.  Trust me, if I could have another babe without being sick, I would do it in a heartbeat!

Re: First Trimester Woes

I do not miss the first trimester.  Thank you for the reminder.  smile  I hope you feel better soon.

Re: First Trimester Woes

IT SUCKS, it is so easy to "forget" those weeks when they are passed but I totally can remember how awful it is! Just keep telling yourself it will be over soon!

Re: First Trimester Woes

Try increasing B vitamins. I get all those symptoms when mine are low, without being pregnant!
