Anyone else?!

Feeling really rough, already look 5 months gone and am constantly tired & grumpy.
Oh hurry & pass, please!!

Scan in 3 weeks - really want to know all is well, and be able to explain why I look and feel so awful!

BarbieLovesKen Thu 11-Jun-09 13:54:26

Ooooh blondie, am exactly the same - feel size of small country - all pants/ trousers too tight - wearing dresses at all times and am trying to hide tummy.

Am naeusous constantly and being honest look like shit.

Am only 7+5 !!!

Like you am waiting for scan in July when (hopefully!!!) will be over 12weeks and people will know im pregnant and not just fat and ugly.

Sound so selfish really, dont I? not very mother earthlike...

blondiep14 Thu 11-Jun-09 13:57:32

No, not at all, know exactly where you are coming from!!
Trying really hard to keep it hidden but sure people must have guessed, or think I'm a total pig!!

What is selfish is me thinking 'yay, i'm not alone' !! Sorry Barbie, I do sympathise utterly!

Pinkjenny Thu 11-Jun-09 14:02:32

I hear you, 11 weeks, fat, nauseous, tired and grumpy. My poor dd. Scan week on Monday. Am wearing maternity trousers today, which makes me want to weep.

Have told everyone.

blondiep14 Thu 11-Jun-09 14:18:31

Oh Pinkjenny, I ordered some mat jeans last night. My non-mat ones are falling down, not because I'm skinny (ha - I wish!!) but because my bulge pushes them down.
Can't wait for it to turn in to a bump and to tell people.
Are you going to find out if new baby is blue or pink? I didn't last time but a bit more tempted this time...

Pinkjenny Thu 11-Jun-09 14:23:11

I am the opposite blondiep14, I found out last time, but want a surprise this time, as I think this will be my last.

I always wanted 3 or 4, but to be honest, I have found the last 7 weeks so tough, I never could have imagined how different a pregnancy experience is when you already have children. I have found it totally exhausting and overwhelming, and don't think I could go through it again.

sleepwhenidie Thu 11-Jun-09 14:25:23

you are definitely not alone - try pg no3, 10 weeks along with dd turning 1 tomorrow hmm I swear I looked pregnant the day after I found out at 5 wks.

Have bought lots of loose tops but think I am fooling no one, how does this happen? I haven't put on any weight but I have an enormous tummy, like my uterus has just gone "ok, here we go again, RELAX AND MAKE ROOM FOR THE BABY" and my tummy muscles have just gone - "oh, ok" and not put up any semblance of a fight.

Let's just hope the lack of resistance in the tummy department translates to other bits and results in easy quick labour wink

sorry - blame pg for posting twice blush

timmette Thu 11-Jun-09 14:27:20

PinkJeeny also 11 weeks and in maternity trousers - normal ones are way to uncomfortable and feeling like an elephant blush .

blondiep14 Thu 11-Jun-09 14:31:48

It's nice to be in good company!

I don't think i've put much weight on (but won't be checking!) but my tummy looks like a watermelon!

PJ - I don't think I will find out either, just more curious at the mo, think I'd feel annoyed I'd found out if I did know IYSWIM?

timmette Thu 11-Jun-09 14:34:38

Well I am 1.5 kilos heavier than before I was pregnant - which I guess is ok?

blondiep14 Thu 11-Jun-09 15:33:14

Sure it's fine Timmette - I've probably put on double that but go with ignorance being bliss!

bevlin Thu 11-Jun-09 20:51:23

Hi, Im 10 weeks with 2nd PG and feel horrible too. I told everyone when I was 7 weeks because im so utterly vain and wanted to explain my fat tummy! Haven't put on any weight either. My stomach has actually went down a bit which is surprising considering that if I don't eat every 2 hours im running for the loo and wretching until I turn purple and nearly wee myself in the process! I think constipation is a big reason for the huge tummy because I seem to have finally got over that (for now) which is probably why im back to being comfortable in my jeans. Just do a big poo!blush

haraslou Thu 11-Jun-09 22:29:21

ah. have found where I belong! I am the grumpiest crankiest momma at the moment. Not only do I feel fat, knackered and pukey all day but I am being so horrible to my kids I want to cry! They really don't deserve a cranky old cow like me. I can't seem to stop snapping at them when they are really doing nothing at all wrong, other than being an exploring toddler and a curious preschooler. Not sure if our relationship will survive another 5 weeks, or however long it takes to feel a bit better. Must be nicer..must be nicer...must be nicer....

Can I join the club too?

9 wks Pg with Number 3 and feeling miserable too.

I hardly talk, because a) I haven't got the energy and b) when I do I want to puke. I feel awful. This morning someone said "ooh that's great news!" upon learning of my pregnancy, to which I answered "no". And I feel guilty now! It's even worse than it seems, as him and his wife are ttcing and nothing is happening!

<hopefully will come out in about 3 weeks>

cheleandy Sun 14-Jun-09 10:11:56

mrsrawlinson Sun 14-Jun-09 11:09:12

Ooh, can I have a moan too? I'm 12+1 with DC3 (DTs are 6). Sick, knackered, grumpy, relegated to horrid frumpy bras due to mahoosively inflated boobs and, for some completely bizarre reason this morning, can't stop crying.

I hear it gets better when they reach about 18....

blondiep14 Sun 14-Jun-09 20:43:31

I wish my boobs grew, they didn't last time either- I am a freak!!
I forgot about the tears, mine are also frequent and often!
My what fun we must be to live with!!! grin

oh hang in there lovely mommies! title of thread caught my eye, I remember that feeling so well.Didnt put me off though - I have 6 DC now LOL. Just remeber how worth while it will all be when you are holding your new little bundle. Take it easy, rest as much as you can, and dont expect too much of yourself!For some of the tips I gathered over timetake a look here
grin

blondiep14 Mon 15-Jun-09 17:07:51

Thanks Galen, have bookmarked!!

Gateau Tue 16-Jun-09 08:57:32

I only started to look pregnant when I approached 20 weeks. Before that I just loked fat and frumpy; I still feel that way, but at least I now LOOK pregnant.
Ws surprised because I thought I would show earlier with my 2nd pregnancy.

Tiaxx31 Tue 16-Jun-09 09:54:31

I am 15 weeks and all the way through from 5-6 weeks i have been sick day & night it is awful feeling like this, i didn't feel this bad for my 1st child 13 years ago. I look like a whale as my stomach stuck out straight away, i had my 1st scan at 13 weeks & it was lovely seeing the baby made it feel a bit more real. But feel so tearful,sick,tired & moody due to not being able to get comfy in bed of a night. I have ordered one of those "Dream Gini Pillows" so waiting for it to arrive, alot of ppl swear by these so i hope it works,lol
I know how all of you are feeling, lets get through it together as maybe this will help,lol
