Restless and ill

Come whine with me.

Feeling like crap, and am at 8 weeks. Just want to skip to the nice bit of pregnancy now.

Anyone found any good ways to feel better?

Sleep. But that gave way to crippling PGP if I stayed in the same position for more than half an hour... [back to the drawing board]

rest as much as possible, eat little and often, go easy on yourself, I'm a little ahead of you (13 weeks) and I'm always tired so I know all about resting, good luck

Pelvic Girdle Pain, it's the umbrella term for SPD, Sacro-illiac pain etc. Means I get a very sexy NHS ratchet strap contraption to hold my pelvis together smile

Seriously though, PamBeesly has it. Be good to yourself, eat what you can when you can and sleep when you need to. For the first fifteen weeks I could have slept for Britain, napped every day after work and found getting up before 9am to be brutal (luckily I do flexi hours at work so could get shifts that allowed for this!)
