1st Trimester

Good vs bad days

Currently hit 12 weeks and I know that most symptoms start to ease by the second trimester. However, I still have days where just watching tv is too much effort. This is my first and I was wondering if anyone else has struggled with this? It’s frustrating because I never know what I’ll be capable of and it feels like I should be improving faster. Is there any advice on how to handle the days where everything is too much to handle?

    I also just hit 12 weeks, and everyone keeps telling me that my nausea should be ending, and it's really not. I've gotten to a point where I can eat more than a few weeks ago, but I also have random bouts of nausea. Last night, we tried to go out for pizza and I couldn't finish 1 piece without looking at my husband and saying, "I have to be done." 

    I am taking the small improvements (being able to eat more) as a win and hoping that this symptom is slowly getting better (even if it's not as fast as I would prefer). I also plan to discuss it with my doctor at my next appointment (13.5 weeks) if it hasn't gotten better and ask for her advice.

    I'm sorry I don't have much advice, but hoping it's helpful to hear that you're not alone in this!
