I feel crap

Just that. I'm only 20 weeks but feeling dreadful - worse than I remember feeling at any point with my first. I'm tired, constantly starving (with weight gsin to match - depressing), still nauseous, already not sleeping most nights, I've got no energy, and I'm uncomfortable and heavy and lumbering in a way I shouldn't be with 20 weeks still to go! I'm struggling at work because I'm knackered and therefore faffing about being unmotivated, but stressed I'm not getting much done.

I feel thoroughly pathetic - it wasn't this hard last time! I sailed through my last pregnancy, still going to the gym at 39 weeks. Now walking round the supermarket fills me with dread because of the effort. Which really is pathetic at only 20 weeks!

It's not just me, is it? Anything I can do?!

It's crap.

I sailed through first pregnancy.
Second was an utter drag and I felt horrendous from start to finish.
18 weeks with third now and sailing yet again!

Some pregnancies are just harder. It won't last forever. Rest, eat what you want, and ask for help flowers

35+4 today with DD2, each day is a surprise whether I'm a bundle of nesting energy or I don't move from the sofa. Today I'm not moving from the sofa. Go easy on yourself, pushing won't help anything. A burst of energy will come along eventually.. then go again. flowers

I forgot to mention the new addition of heartburn.

Thanks - good to know that I'm not alone.

I'd really like a lie down.

Oh - though I'm really tempted to eat whatever I want, that would exclusively be chocolate. So I'm going with eating as much as I want, but most of it at least relatively healthy. (Stuffing falafel as I type.)
