I’ve been dealing with prenatal depression, which will hopefully get better with the second tri. I really need to call the therapist my GP referred me to, but I’ve been too exhausted. I think it’s just hormones and mom guilt, combined with the loss of my usual mental health coping mechanisms (seeing friends, going on long runs, my antidepressant, working on projects). I have a hard time being unproductive.Also, the pregnancy rhinitis is in full force. 🤧 so many tissues!I’m just so tired and getting more nauseous. And I feel bad for being such a sad sack— it makes me feel more guilty and then I feel worse.Edit to say I’m 8 weeks now I am happy to get here, it feels like a mini milestone!
Sneezing! I don't have allergies and I know I'm not sick. I've been like this for at least 3-4 weeks. It's like my super sniffer is not only picking up on all these scents and aiding in food aversion but the intensity of sneezes that randomly come is crazy!
Re: February Symptoms
I've also had sneezing/stuffed nose -- no idea if it's a winter cold or pregnancy related!
Anyhoo, you're not alone in the slog
Vertigo when I’m tired. Suddenly the world is just wobbling all over. At least it’s by my “new tired” not my “old tired” because my “old tired” is my “new well-rested.” I’m never not tired anymore.
Also sore boobs. Hugs have never been uncomfortable before. The nipple pain has mostly subsided. Still sensitive but not even close to being as painful as it was. Kind of looking forward to the natural chest increase.
Keep strong everyone 😊
Anyone else feel hunger pangs/low blood sugar while also feeling full? The fullness I feel is all bloating -- gas? Fluids? -- but it's very uncomfortable
