Overwhelmed

I'm really struggling. I was so happy about being pregnant and had tried for many years with my husband when we got the positive result a few weeks ago. Fatigue kicked in and that was bearable. Now the morning sickness has arrived, I've turned into a complete mess. Its making me have such horrible thoughts like regretting being pregnant. I feel so guilty for feeling this way. I just can't imagine weeks and weeks of feeling this terrible. If i'm not puking, I'm feeling like I'm going to or i'm blubbering the whole time. I know sickness is all normal but I didn't expect it to the sap the joy out of everything. Please tell me it gets better? I'm about 8 weeks.

It does get better, hang in there. If it makes you feel any better, I had those feelings of regret as well. I don't like how pregnancy has made me feel a little trapped. Our hormones are all over the place so it's not surprising that we're up and down all the time flowers

Its the first trimester horrors! Trust me its really common to feel very glum at this time (stupid hormones). The first trimester is the worst in my opinion - even worse than the overdue grumpiness you get in the third trimester wink. Hang on in there - 8 weeks was the low point for me and certainly by 12 weeks I was feeling totally different.

Normal and yes of does (usually) get better, second trimester often you don't feel pregnant at all third is a bit of a pain cause of the bump bit first trimester is supposed to be the worst.
You'll be fine flowers
Get lots of rest and do lots of lounging around TV watching if you feel like it

It does get better, though at 31 weeks I still have the "what have I gotten myself into?!?" Thoughts grin

Do something that makes you feel happy every day-even if it's just eating something you like or watching trashy telly. flowers

It got better for me. I felt absolutely vile for the first 10-12 weeks but am 14 weeks now and not sick any more. The physical discomfort definitely contributes to feeling emotionally awful. Hang in there!

Thank you so much everyone for your words, each and everyone has made me blub reading them. I think its just hit me what it all entails, when you are trying, you get so caught up with that, it didn't cross my mind that I feel this crap. I think I had rose tinted glasses on which have now firmly been removed!
