Hi Im 13 weeks pregnant and am feeling great I had a terrible time in first trimester. Bleeding light cramps, mood swings, sickness not being able to muster the energy to get dressed at times. Was worried that at 12 weeks I still felt bad then woooooooooooshhhhhhh feel great. Energy come back, dont feel sick only slightly first thing and moods improved. How is everyone else feeling? Also put on a stone and a half first trimester and half a stone come off Im conviced its swelling cause my face doesnt look puffed up people have commented my face looks less bloated. Only downside is now have lots energy cant sit down or get to sleep!! So gone from being like a cat eating and sleeping to have super energy and not sleeping hence the late night post lolx

Hi pregnantmimi

I was just like this from about 14 weeks, isn't it nice when you start feeling like your old self again! My face was the same, I kept calling myself 'moon face' for the whole of the first trimester but it definitely went down a bit once I went into the second. I've pretty much been avoiding the scales though!

Make the most of it, I'm 25 weeks now and the tiredness is starting to come back with a vengeance!!

Enjoy and take care!

How wonderful, hopefully you'll feel full of energy for many many weeks to come! I have to confess that I missed my first trimester, we found out at 12 wks + 5 due to a combination of PCOS, a total lack of symptoms or any weight gain. Am 28 + 1 now and (touch wood) have fairly sailed through to this point, I think the fact I'm still running helped enormously. My energy levels have been the same throughout, I just get an extra hours sleep at night now. Can't say how long I will continue to feel this way of course but hopefully now that you're feeling full of beans again it will continue for as long as possible smile
