Feeling sorry for myself 1st time pregnancy 11 weeks
Firsttimemummywilson · 29/01/2020 19:12
I am just over 11 weeks pregnant with my first baby but since week 7 I have began to feel worse and worse in myself. I don’t want to leave the house or see anyone, I have had quite bad sickness which is controlling my day, my skin is awful and I just have no get up and go to get ready do my hair, make up or even put on clothes. I just can’t be bothered with anything. I am able to work from home which is a blessing but I now dread ever going into the office. I’m hoping this period passes I just feel like no one prepared me for feeling this way. I have never felt so bad in my life and I just want to cry I’m feeling very low and I just want to start to feel like myself again. I can’t help but feel sorry for myself and I know I should be so happy and grateful to have been blessed with a baby,

Hey, like you I felt very much the same with my first pregnancy and my
Second! Although I did struggle all the way through, there was light at the end of the tunnel! It was at its worse for me
1-16weeks and then eased a little - I am 21 weeks now! I know my body and my mind and I was v v low and even felt awful for moaning but considered not continuing my pregnancy- with the right support and push I saw the mother infant mental health team and a consultant - I was put back on my original medication and some anti sickness - when I was sick it made me feel even worse- when I was tired it made the sickness worse!
You may not be on medication or feel it's not safe but it is and I'd look into speaking with your GP/midwife and be honest with how you feel- you don't deserve to feel like this and need to talk and understand this will pass- I promise!!! X

I felt exactly the same at 11 weeks pregnant, and this was during a very much wanted IVF pregnancy. First thing I'd say is think about talking to your GP about sickness meds, I was put on tablets and they made everything much better. Also I found I started feeling significantly better in myself and my mood around 16/18 weeks (and my skin went from being terrible to amazing around then too ) just keep powering through and do everything you can to feel good, and hopefully soon you will turn a corner!

Hi OP just wanted to say I felt the same with my first pregnancy, very low, mainly down to sickness and I felt confused and upset about it because it was a very wanted pregnancy. I remember sadly googling ‘9 weeks pregnant and miserable’ in the hope I wasn’t the only one. As the first trimester and the sickness passed, so did these feelings. Try not to worry and just ride it out.
