Hi ladies,
The last couple of day ive been feeling really meh. Thats the only word to describe it. Im nearly 8 weeks gone and honestly, i feel so achy all over, almost like ive got a flu coming on but no sniffle. A warm bath helps a little, but as soon as im out those aches are back. Just dont know what to do with myself? Too exhausted to rest, too exhausted to do anything! I went to my grandparents for lunch today, and my nana said i looked exhausted. She doesnt know im pregnant yet, but how can this be? I had 12 hours sleep last night!!! Anyone else feeling the same?

Sorry love but I am afraid you just have to ride this bit out. You will get your energy back when you get to 2nd trimester so not long left.

Sleep when you can and tell yourself it is a sign that your body is doing what it needs to do. At one point around 8 weeks I wanted to go to bed, stood at the bottom of the stairs and though 'god that's a long way up'. Just thought I would sit on the bottom step for a few seconds then would climb the stairs. DH found me asleep on the bottom step half an hour later. Xx

I'm feeling the same! I'm 10 weeks and have been off work as I'm so achy. I move from the bed to the coach and do little else I between unfortunately. Like you I sleep a lot and yet I'm still bone tired when I wake up. I'm just doing small things when I feel up to it. I'm hoping I get an energy peak in the next couple of weeks!!

Hi lozzy. I'm 9+4 and feel the same but slightly better now than I did. I had horrible days around 8 - same things with seeing the stairs and not being able to face them.

I've managed work but really had some really tough moments there too. Good luck!

I'm 8+4 and I feel worse than this. Have hyperemesis which is just bloody awful. Sleeping is the only thing I like doing. This was a much much wanted pregnancy but feeling very 'meh' about the whole thing, which makes me feel so guilty.
