Hello there - I am coming up for 24 weeks and have been EXHAUSTED for the last few days after a really perky, full-of-beans 8 weeks or so. Nothing really wrong with me at all, just back to first trimester tiredness (I'm wondering if my baby is having a growth spurt). I just wondered - when was the stage of pregnancy you felt the best and how long did it last? And did you have peaks and troughs?
(Obviously I'm hoping for a return to form - but maybe the easy bit is over)
Definitely experienced/experiencing peaks and troughs, (but with 3 hard months at the beginning and 3 hard weeks at the end)
Although I am in my 2nd trimester now and feeling "good" its definitely related to how much rest I get. If I overdo things it tends to make me feel sick and tired for the next few days, equally getting lots of sleep and sofa lounging time seems to buy me more energy/cheeriness. So take a load off and relax for an hour or two! (if you can)
With my 1st pregnancy - definitely with MrsK on conception followed by labour as I knew the hell that was the previous 9 months, would soon be over.
With this one I am OK at the moment (25 weeks) feeling mainly breathless (and the usual nausea and SPD that seems to mark my pregnancies ). I suspect I'll hit 7 months and go down hill again [pessimistic emoticon]. Can you tell I love being pregnant ?
<wanders off muttering he's never coming near me again>
The whole second trimester so far. Up until week 9 I was sick every day and felt pretty much miserable. Then I spent next 3 weeks feeling better, but still queasy. As I hit 2nd trimester I just became unstoppable. The bump is big enough to look obviously pregnant, but still small enough not to be a burden in physical terms. Am 23w now, hope this feeling is here to stay!
