Week 10 here and am bored of feeling ill (whilst being grateful obvs)

1.Healthy food i.e. vegetables, pulses, fish (normally huge health freak)
2. Woman's hour
3.Sex
4.Music
5.Socialising
6.Long journeys
7.Tidying/cleaning/washing clothes
8. My spiritual life
9.Reading
10.TV
11.Coffee/tea/butter
12.Shopping
13. Hosting

I feel so ill all the time, I can't enjoy anything I don't feel depressed as such just unable to enjoy anything because my minds taken up with bleugh feelings.

I do like; my bed, texting, the internet, my job confused (weirdly, as I'm a primary school teacher, somehow the children take my mind off how awful I feel) and water with lemons in.

Anyone else?

The first trimester can be tough but it does get better. You are nearing the end now,hang in there.

I've been feeling pretty rough for the last 4 weeks, feeling sick all day (although thankfully I do have some better days now) so tired all the time and I have also gone off wanting to socialise with anyone, travel anywhere far or visit anyone. I'm hoping as the weeks go on all these ease and I feel a bit more like myself soon.

Hope you start to feel a bit better soon too x

Tea and coffee, tidying and the smell of absolutely EVERYTHING

Bigfam Sat 28-May-16 20:28:24

bumbleclat & fancy seeing you 'ere (away from our huge December thread!) wink

I went off exactly the same things apart from tea, I started drinking that again I was caffeine and milk free before.
Also a teacher and strangely work was the only place I felt ok minus a few dashes to the loo. Cleared up and I went back to normal about 20 weeks

BikeRunSki Mon 30-May-16 04:16:22

For me it was (both times)
1- all food
2- all drink
3 - being awake
4 - personal hygiene
5 - standing up
6 - sex

I was really very poorly

QforCucumber Mon 30-May-16 04:21:01

I went off chicken - made me feel so sick. And bring awake, sleep is underrated (definitely know this now with a 10 week old)

KayTee87 Mon 30-May-16 13:56:28

The first trimester was awful for me too, I felt so ill and tired I just didn't want to be pregnant anymore (which is awful as this is a very much wanted baby). I'm now 32+3 and although it's hard to sleep with a big bump I feel 100x better now than at the beginning. It does get better flowers

I think it was about week 10 that I felt so awful I got to the end of the week and realised I'd not washed my hair for 7days and couldn't remember when I last showered (😳)...I think that was the same week I could only keep down mash potato! Now at almost 6months I basically feel entirely normal, aside from the lovely wiggling in my tummy! It gets better I promise!

bumbleclat Mon 30-May-16 21:01:44

Bigfam Hello from MASSIVE December due date thread, at least a lot of us are in the same boat, I just can't believe what a moaner I've become, Im normally so independent and cheerful.
Lovely to hear that it does pass.

Bigfam Mon 30-May-16 21:03:55

Apparently there's 127 of us on there shock
I've had a really crap day today with sickness again, but was fine yesterday.

MrsMarsch Mon 30-May-16 21:05:22

I'm due mid December and I'm feeling shitty too OP. Hand holding and hugs coming from this way, I've been a mardy, antisocial cowbag and told DH he's never having sex with me again! Fingers crossed this ends soon for all of us xx

Bigfam Mon 30-May-16 21:07:02

MrsMarsch, are you on the Dec thread?

ricecrispies16 Mon 30-May-16 21:17:30

30 weeks here -

1) anything remotely energetic!!

I'm so tired!!

ThinkPinkStink Tue 31-May-16 13:51:41

Oh god, me too! I'm 22 weeks now and feeling a whole lot more 'normal' but I empathise SO HARD!

1.Healthy food i.e. vegetables, pulses, fish (normally huge health freak) - me too, it was beige food all day every day, brocolli tasted of dirt... I can't even. In good news in my second trimester I'm all about berries.

2. Woman's hour - there was a focus on prostitution in my first tri, I wept.

3.Sex - even a fumble was out of the question.

4.Music - try some Mowtown.

5.Socialising - in fact 'leaving the house' in fact... 'not sleeping'

6.Long journeys - see items 5 above.

7.Tidying/cleaning/washing clothes - I became averse to the smell of PERSIL - I LOVE the smell of clean washing.

8. My spiritual life - I have hours of pregnancy related yoga audio files - thus far ignored.

9.Reading - ditto, I haven't read a book in five months (this is an enormous rarity)

10.TV - ditto (if I was sitting, I was sleeping and Save the Children/NSPCC/Dog's Trust/Oxfam ads left me a heaving mess of tears)

11.Coffee/tea/butter - I've just got back into coffee now - I drank a LOT of chamomile tea in the first tri.

12.Shopping - see item 5.

13. Hosting - I'd get to the end of a weekend, and apologise profusely (and tearfully) to (patient and not remotely annoyed) DH about how I realise that I'd done nothing except sit and sleep.

Keep the faith - it gets better, I absolutely promise you!

ThinkPinkStink Thank you, other people's stories are all Ive got to hold onto, Its now 3pm and I know the day is downhill from here.
Its like I can feel the nausea slowly rising all day. Luckily I am sleeping through the night so that's something.

Bigfam Tue 31-May-16 18:04:48

I've found that if I eat too late the night before, the next morning I vomit and can't eat, cue the whole day being awful. It honestly makes me feel better when I eat & don't let myself get hungry.

TipBoov Tue 31-May-16 18:08:08

I used to LOVE broccoli, garlic and green beans. I cannot stand them now, and the smell of them cooking makes me heave.

Cheese I could take or leave, now I love it!

bumbleclat Tue 31-May-16 19:11:13

Bigfam I know what you mean, it's so disheartening to wake up and just know that the day is a write off, I normally wake up and just see it as an opportunity get things done or do nice things but today was definitely not like that.
Roll on 2 tri.

TwistyBraStrap Tue 31-May-16 23:23:17

I'VE GONE OFF YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS! sadsadsadenvy

How am I supposed to eat a roast dinner?!

cnchapmanxx Wed 01-Jun-16 04:58:18

Red meat!
Burgers, mince, meatballs, steak anything green and healthy I can't remember the last time I ate veg! All I've lived of is jam on toast, carbs more carbs and chicken!
The smell of alcohol - I was on holiday last week and the smell of anything remotely alcohol made me gag especially when Oh breathed on me grin

FirstTimeMummy25 Wed 01-Jun-16 05:05:31

I had this up until about 13 weeks! The smell of sweet perfume used to make me reach as well! A girl at work always used to wear it tho so wasn't great lol... Hopefully you won't have long left of feeling like thissmile

bumbleclat Wed 01-Jun-16 10:03:18

Thank you FTM two weeks to go (every day feels like 3 days)

FirstTimeMummy25 Thu 02-Jun-16 20:51:54

Awwww bless you! I hope it doesn't feel like too long... You tried ginger? That's suppose to help? Maybe you could try some crystallised ginger in hot water? Or ginger biscuits?
Lemon water used to help me a bit.
