Crying on the bathroom floor.

Morning everyone, I don't really know what I need, advice or reassurance but I just need to have a release.

Due to health issues I have it was a long journey get the "ok" from my Consultants to try and get pregnant and me and my husband couldn't believe it when we then got pregnant on our first month of trying. I am excited, I really am, but I'm miserable too.

I naively thought pregnancy would be a magical time but I'm only 10 weeks in and sick of it already. I've had two separate occasions of bleeding, the first one turned out to be ok but I'm currently awaiting my 2 ND scan so make sure baby is still ok. I have felt ill for the last 4 weeks, I'm absolutely exhausted and I haven't seen friends and family for so long because I just can't bring myself to leave the house. I'm having painful restless legs, heads, nausea and all I seem to be living off is cheeses and onion crisps and crackers. The house is an absolute mess but I jut don't have the energy to care or do anything about it.

I woke up this morning with my usual nausea but then I realised that it wasn't just nausea this time but that I was actually going to be sick. Quick dart to the bathroom and then the vomiting started.

When I stopped being sick I just curled up on the bathroom mat and started crying. My crying episode lasted for ages. I only started feeling better when one of my gorgeous cats wondered in and was available for cuddles.

I feel awful when so many women would give anything to be pregnant, but I'm just so tired and ill. I want to have a happy pregnancy, not a miserable one. I just can't see how I'm going to cope with feeling like this for much longer.

Thank you for listening x x

Congratulations and it does get better. I am just entering into morning sickness territory with number two. Last time it got better after week 10. Try eating something small regularly and fizzy water. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Really glad you had a better day today Writer.

Good luck for today writer xx

Sorry you feel so crap, I remember that time well. I vowed not to do it again as the first trimester was so awful.

My babies are nearly one and I am very broody and miss being pregnant! You will forget smile

My scan went very well today - there was an obvious, very active and wriggly baby in there!! I'm so relieved!!

Amazing news writer! I have been thinking about you all morning. Hope this helps you to feel a tiny bit better and to look forward to a stage when you won't be feeling this rubbish! Take care xx

Hi i'm on my third pregnancy and had forgotten as there is a big gap between this abd my youngest.

Now nearly 8 weeks and I feel awful. 24 hour nausea, utter exhaustion and look like a zombie. I'm eating rubbish too.

I'm so glad your scan went okay. I hate the first trimester it's evil.

Yay for a wriggling bean! grin
12.5 here and feeling rough rough rough! I had a couple of days of feeling better at the weekend, and now I just want to crawl into bed and hide again! sad

Six weeks here and was lying on the bathroom floor last night resolving to see a doctor and beg for some help. Have felt better today but eaten crisps, crackers, white bread and peanut butter and been drinking coke. So I feel guilty about my crappy diet and the amount of cbeebies my toddler is watching. Last time, the vomiting started at nine weeks and went on til week 21. I keep getting very upset about the prospect of the vomiting starting up (only nausea so far) and very depressed about the idea offeeling like this for another 15 weeks if it's the same as my first pregnancy.

Posted too soon! Also feel bad as I had a mc in June and should be grateful for this pregnancy (and I am). I told my Dh that if I were to lose this one I couldn't try again as I simply couldn't go through early pregnancy again. It is awful.

However, I loved the second half of pregnancy, even the final weeks. I had a great birth and obviously it's all worth it for the lovely baby in the end. It really does get better!
