I feel totally p*ed off

I'm 18 weeks now and I still feel sick. I've also had a cold and sinus problems for the last five weeks. For the last two weeks I've woken up with a splitting headache every day. I've just started to develop heartburn.
I haven't had a single day where I have felt truly well since the beginning of October.

I felt the best for a long time, during the middle of my pregnancy, just hang on, it won't be long!!!

Thanks for your answer.

I keep thinking that everybody says that in the second trimester you feel great.

Pleeeeeeeeeeease let it start soon...

i started to feel much better at 20 weeks so hang on in there.

It lasted right through my pregnancy from then and until ds was about 3 months. I'll stop talking now....

Sorry you a feeling so rotten! I had the sinus problems, but I found steaming every day and paracetamol helped. For the heartburn the only thing that helped was Gaviscon Advance liquid, I used to carry a huge bottle around with me at all times and swig from it . Also had great big fat feet like cornish pasties due to fluid retention and carpal tunnel syndrome. And I look back now and tell people how much I enjoyed being pregnant - isn't nature wonderful!? .

I really hope you feel better soon!

Its totally normal to feel the way you do.

I never felt like i was glowing or blooming or anything in both my pgs.

In fact, last pg i had chest infections, ear infections, colds, gastric flu, spd, etc etc to be topped off by pre-eclampsia at the end.

Dont feel obliged to feel great, and let everyone spoil you as much as possible and accept ALL offers of help.

Emkana, I'm on my second pg (29 weeks)and hate it for most of the time- was sick on both Xmas and New Years Day! Quite the opposite of blooming and will be glad to go into labour!! It will all end in a few months and then you'll forget all about it til next time I promise!
Word of warning- I was sick in labour and also the injection for the placenta made me pukeup all the water that I'd drunk - thought it was never going to end!!
Get on to the right ante natal thread and have a good old MN whinge - that's what it's here for!
This is definately the last one though....

emkana - I had really bad sinus problems a few weeks ago (headaches, swollen face, runny or blocked nose...), and went to the GP's in desparation in the end. He prescribed antibiotics, and within a few days I was feeling a lot better. Don't suffer in silence! Let everyone know how miserable you feel.

Are you eating enough to keep the sickness away? I find I've got to eat v.regularly (esp in the evenings for some reason), or I start to feel nauseous again.
