Pregnancy Sucks
klynshoe posted:
I've always dreamed of being pregnant and now I take it all back! I am so SICK of always being SICK. I'm tired of throwing up every day. I'm tired of the constant stomach pains from being constipated and then having it turn to diarhea at the worst possible time. I'm tired of apologizing to my husband for being overly sensitive and moody because he just doesn't GET IT. I'm tired of trying to explain to my boss that I'm not always available to speak with at every given moment of every day because I'm hunched over the toilet at work in the bathroom gagging. I'm tired of my husband forgetting to come to appts. I'm tired of not being able to get housework done because I'm too sick/tired. I'm TIRED OF IT ALL. I really hope this is worth it because I can't take it anymore.

:) Your post made me smile.

I totally understand where you're coming from. I had zero symptoms with my first pregnancy and was thinking that since I never got MS the first time, that I wouldn't get it this time....well, I was just wrong! I feel your pain. Let me assure you - this too shall pass (never soon enough but eventually). I promise you the end result is worth it.

Ditto! I'm now at 12 weeks 3 days and weeks 3-11 were pure HELL. I even argued with my husband constantly about whether or not we could keep going with the pregnancy. Just 2 days ago my symptoms started to ease up so now I don't constantly think about how I'm going to die from this. Instead of being sick I now have severe painful constipation. Not necessarily a better symptom but I at least don't dream about throwing myself off our balcony. I would say hunker down for the next week and eat and do whatever you want when you want and it will get better. Tell your husband exactly what you think of his behavior and to stop being a jerk!

Sorry to hear you all are feeling so bad during this pregnancy. Have you talked to your Dr. about a prenatal vitamin with a stool softener in it?

How about a women's group for pregnant women?

Good luck and I hope you feel better REAL soon!
Me (31) DH (30) Hoping for 1st DS or DD by next year! God is good all the time and His mercy endures at peace!
