Is 9 weeks the worst bit of the first trimester?

Please tell me it is. If I'm not constantly eating, I'm nauseous. I'm not eating anything good either - I can't stomach meat or veges so I'm on a constant diet of bland carbs - biscuits and bread. I still chuck up toxic yellow sludge every so often. Nice! I'm shattered - slept 6.30pm - 7am last night & called in sick today as I still feel like I've been run over by a truck.

I'm 9+4 - please tell me this won't last too much longer?

It was for me - hang in there!

Gennz Thu 01-May-14 21:56:39

Thank you shesays you give me hope!

I was really sick up until 22 weeks but weeks 9-11 were by far the worst hopefully it eases a bit for you soon!

I'm 10+4 and still feeling ropey. Just keep reminding yourself it's all for a good cause, also that if you feel like sh&t it's probably a good sign!

Yes! Both times weeks 8-10 were horrific with week 9 being especially awful. You WILL feel better soon- hang in there!

loopylou52 Thu 01-May-14 23:06:03

I started feeling a lot better around that time. Hope you do too!

I have never admitted this before but week 9 I very nearly had a termination because I was being sick 30 times a day on a bad day sad sad sad sad

Gennz Fri 02-May-14 02:54:20

oh god yellow rose I totally get you, I wailed to DH yesterday "what the f#ck were we thinking!! we should've just got another dog!" blush

Sorry Gennz but your comment made me laugh... grin

Congrats!

Loujim2 Fri 02-May-14 06:21:08

It passed about the 14 week point for me. Then you can enjoy the pregnancy :-) x

Bumpforme2014 Fri 02-May-14 06:56:53

Yup, week 6/7 and week 10/11 worse for me, only feeling back to myself now at 16 weeks!

MrsBungle Fri 02-May-14 06:59:46

Weeks 8-12 were definitely my worst. Hopefully it'll ease off a bit for you soon.

MrsWombat Fri 02-May-14 07:07:09

Yes. I've only been sick twice (on the same day) during this pregnancy and I'm pretty sure it was around week 9/10 that I did that. 12 weeks now, an I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. <touch wood>

Once you hit the second trimester you will be fine, that's the best bit and you actually get to enjoy being pregnant. Now the third......well that's another matter but hey babies are cute smile

Gennz Fri 02-May-14 07:20:55

It better be cute!! I just had Mcdonald's. Have officially hit rock bottom. Must be the first time I've had it sober since I was a kid.

Heatherbell1978 Fri 02-May-14 07:45:57

Yeah i was 9 wks over my birthday weekend in January and I remember just feeling so tired and miserable. The only thing I could stomach was bananas! It all passed at 13 weeks for me though so not long!

ThinkIveBeenHacked Fri 02-May-14 08:09:53

Week nine was hell for me with all my pgs.

Im.now 14 weeks and dont feel pregnant at all! in fact, I keep forgetting grin

squizita Fri 02-May-14 08:16:25

Was for me too! Sick 2-3 times a day, exhausted week 8-10 ... better by week 12, only been sick once since week 14. So it can get a LOT better. FX that happens for you.

Gennz Fri 02-May-14 09:23:55

Here's hoping! Actually am feeling quite good at the moment ... must have been the fries blush

Is 8pm here by the way, am not having hot chips for breakfast! V tempting though

SassehMonsta Fri 02-May-14 13:02:47

Damnit. I feel horrendous and I'm only 7+4, I don't want to know it gets worse ;)

LightTripper Fri 02-May-14 13:21:00

For me the sickness lasted longer BUT after about 11-13 I could eat more different things AND I started to get some energy back, which makes a HUGE difference even if you are still throwing up. I also found a few more foods I could stomach, including some slightly healthier things (like carrots and tinned sweetcorn, plums, oranges), and the joy of boiled sweets. Saved by Pear drops. And those rhubarb and custard ones. I'm amazed all my teeth haven't fallen out!

Hang on in there, and don't worry about eating crap. I couldn't look at a vegetable for weeks, but doesn't seem to have done LO any harm (except that she is a week late already and obviously MUCH too comfy in there...!). Just take it a week at a time.

ClaretAndBlue30 Fri 02-May-14 13:24:21

I felt exactly the same at 9 weeks as you describe - we went away to Budapest for the weekend and I spent most of my time walking around crying. It's awful.

Mine cleared up seemingly overnight at 12 weeks, I'm now 18 weeks and MUCH happier smile

Hope it eases up for you.

Week 9 was the only week I was physical sick. Hit week 10 today and feel better already!
