I'd forgotten what early pregnancy is like ...

God it's tiresome! Am only five or six weeks, but exhausted, no energy, constantly wanting to eat, brain feels utterly fuzzy and am finding it impossible to concentrate at work ... just want to go to sleep! I can't remember it being like this before - is this what it's like?? This is my third pregnancy but it's been a while - my littlest is 5.5 - so perhaps I am just getting old smile Remind me this is normal (especially the constant eating to stave off the nausea)

I am tired all the time, i'm usually a nightowl but find i can't stay awake past 10 o' clock at the minute i think im 6-8 weeks nausea is making me eat little and often bland foods such as pasta, potatoes, bread ect i also have pelvic twinges which catch me unawares, my only child is 6 yrs old i cannot remember it being so tiring last time, mind you this extreme summer we're having isn't helping with the tiredness/dizzyness. I empathise with others in the same situation! chin up tho eh Ladies ;)

Sorry to hear we're all suffering sad I think the heat makes it worse. I have just been extraordinarily tired still, and today my breathing has gone a bit funny - I can't catch my breath & have to keep taking deep breaths, but I think that might just be the heat. At least it's supposed to cool down a little over the weekend.

Trying to register at the doctor's surgery to get pg things moving, but they can't make up their minds what to do with me as I'm living with my parents for the next few weeks (we all are, me, DH & DC) until our house purchase hopefully completes. The houses are both in the same village, but it's really baffling them!

DH?? DC?? You'll have to forgive me but i'm new to this site and these terminologies!

Can I join please? I am 9 weeks with my second and I feel like craaaaap! All I remember from last time is being sick a lot. This time I have only actually been sick once, but I am just so exhausted and constantly feel nauseous. I can't stand up for more than a few minutes without feeling tired and can't even summon up the energy to hang out the washing. I also have horrible indigestion type stomach pains.

My poor ds just has the world's most rubbish mum at the moment, we haven't been further than the local shops for the past couple of days, and cbeebies has been on a lot. I am a teacher and everyone who knows keeps saying how it is good that the holidays are coming up, but tbh I'm more daunted by the prospect of looking after ds while feeling like this, its going to be rubbish for him sad

And this heat just makes everything a million times worse!

Sorry for that rant, it does make me feel better that I'm not alone in this!
