first time mum to be, new to the site, and feeling rubbish!!!

Hi Kirstie
Congratulations on your pregnancy!!
Welcome to PP. Don't worry, what you are feeling is very normal. I was lucky and never had the sickness / nausea but I used to get to the "walking zombie" stage. I teach and struggled to get through the day.

The best advice I was given was to listen to my body and respond accordingly.

I was quite poorly in the last 4 weeks of my pregnancy and was bedridden for 2 weeks. But, this sounds corny, its all worth it. I'd do it all again tomorrow!!!

Chin up, you'll feel great soon and be able to enjoy the rest of your pregnancy.



  • Hi Kirstie, Im kas,
    welcome to pp, hope you enjoy it here, we're all very friendly.
    Most importantly, CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy.
    I really hope you start to feel better soon. I was lucky i didnt have any symptoms with my first (exept being nauseous on a sunday for the first 5 weeks), random, i know. With my second I had the nauaea and was dry heaving. That was awful.
    Dont worry, you'll soon start to feel healthy and excited, and start to really enjoy your pregnancy (i hope). And ike Caroline, Id do it all again too (i intend to).

    I bet your husband isnt getting fed up, im sure he's delighted and its amazing how supportive they can be when its needed.
    My lovely husband (with my second baby) said to me one day, "dont worry babe, you've only got another few weeks of sickness". Cheers then!! but generally was very supportive.

    Anyway, enough of me rabbitting on now.
    look forward to chatting soon
    Kas xx
  • Hi Kirstie,

    I'm Zoe mum to Jack and Charlotte. With both of mine i felt rubbish between 6 and 16 weeks then i could enjoy them. Once it passes you soon forget about it. I hope it doesn't last too long for you.

  • Hi Kirstie
    I promise you won't feel this bad for long! I think the tiredness is as bad as the nausea and i don't blame you at all for taking it easy. What's your job is it quite demanding? You must be feeling very excited about this baby are you managing to keep it a secret?!!
    Chat soon love Tasha x
