11:00 am - anyone else... please

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I really don't mean to be a downer... but is anyone else out there beginning to hate the fact that they are pregnant? I'm 13w2d and I can't not recall a single day from the beginning of this that I haven't been unGodly sick. I have constant headaches that go away for exactly six hours while the tylenol is working and then come back like clock work as soon as the medicine even begins to where off. I have nausea all day long. I can't sleep. I'm miserable.

I am so excited about this child and being a mother, but I am beginning to despise the pregnancy process. Please someone tell me that they are experiencing at least a little bit of these feelings...

It's been two years since I had my son but I felt the same way. I was gigantic (gained sixty pounds), I had constant migraines and constant nausea. The last few months, I never slept and had horrible acid reflux. It was not a picnic. If it makes you feel any better, most people do get some relief from the morning sickness in the second trimester.

I think every expectant mom has felt the way you are feeling right now. In fact, if I ever met a woman who claimed to have been happy, healthy and only had positive thoughts throughout her whole pregnancy, I would think she was lying.

I try not to think about pregnancy...at all. I was at the point where I could only eat french fries and drink milkshakes becasue nothing else would stay down...oh...and the constant pain. I almost wished I had gained more weight. The poor kids were so smooshed up inside of me, it made me miserable. Really, I just wanted to sleep through it all. I really do love my kids...but please shoot me if I ever get pregnant again.
