Hi all, currently sitting at 8 weeks 4 days, started experiencing “morning” sickness/ debilitating nausea at week 5.5. I still have lots of food aversions coupled with heartburn but no longer throwing up which is great. But since about week 6, I’ve been overcome with what I could only imagine compares with mild depression. Sadness, no desire to do anything, can hardly laugh at a joke from my husband, feeling so lonely. Nothing feels good. Eating is a struggle, doing anything around the house feels like climbing Mt Everest.
Having a hard time with this. Just feels like I’m trying to wade through mud that keeps pulling me down.
Anyone else dealing with anything similar? Would help to know that I’m not alone? The phrase “I should be happy & grateful” keeps coming to mind but it’s not helpful at all.
This is my second pregnancy. First one ended is an 11 week miscarriage in January of this year.
