Why do I still feel like total crap?

I'm starting to feel guilty. I'm 12 weeks today, and I have been so sick since week 6. I have felt so bad that I haven't really even enjoyed the fact that I'm pregnant, something I've been wanting for a few years now. I feel HORRIBLE. I am sick from the moment I get out of bed to the moment I fall asleep at night. My husband has to do all the household chores. Please tell me someone else feels this way.

    Raises hand.  I'm having twins and haven't even really processed that info yet cause of how sick I am.  It sucks.  I wish I could be one of those pregnant woman who can function like a normal human being.  Are you taking anything?  I'm finding that 1/2 a Zofran pill a day is helping me when I need it, but I still feel weak from feeling like crap for so long.

    Hopefully we get better soon!!!!!

    I don't want to scare you, but with my DD I threw up until 7 months. With this pregnancy I was nauseous all the time but threw up only the one time. I started to feel better around week 14. Best of luck to you.

    With my first I started feeling better around week 14. I hope it eases up for you. No one ever said pregnancy was easy. And if they did, they were lying.

    I was sick until the day I delivered last time.  I am PRAYING that this time is different.  It is hard to feel this way constantly.  Hope you get some relief soon.

    I hope the end is in sight for you. :( When I was sick, it was hard to focus on excitement or anything else, just because I felt so crummy all the time.

     I feel the same way.  It sucks because my husband and I are newlyweds and I've been horrible to him.  I feel like crap and haven't wanted to be touched.  Blah.

    I was sick 24/7 (even on Zofran) with DD until about week 18.

    Hang in there. It definitely doesn't magically go away at the end of first tri for a lot of women. And the worse it is/the earlier it starts, the longer it tends to last.

    I was sick with my first pregnancy until 22 weeks.  It was awful.  This time was waaaay worse early on but it's starting to let up (with the help of zofran) a little.  Hang in there.  It sucks.  I'm just not telling myself it's going to end anytime soon and then if it does, I'll be pleasantly surprised.  Unfortunately, some people are sick through their entire pregnancy.  Hopefully that's not the case!

    With my son, I started to feel a little bit better at 26 weeks.  12w isnt the magic number, unfortunately!

    You are not alone. It started bad with me at 6 weeks. But I am not 12 weeks yet. I heard it can last into 2nd Tri but hopefully by 13 weeks it is gone!

    I am doing much better then I was with the m/s.  I was sick all day long until 12weeks hit.  Now I get sick once in a while.  I even vomited last night (more then I have during the whole first 12 weeks). I always thought that it would literally just stop once I hit 12 weeks but now I realize that is silly.  There isn't a switch that is flipped once you hit 12 weeks but just appreciate any day that is better then the day before.  Hopefully you won;t be sick throughout the whole pregnancy but give it time and hang in there.

    thanks everyone for the feedback. i am taking zofran and i still throw up even with it. fortunately i am feeling some better today. i think it is slowly getting better. the secret for me is to KEEP EATING. as long as i eat SOMETHING, it seems to go better. i had a few hours yesterday where i felt like myself, and i was able to enjoy the fact that i'm pregnant! praying for more moments like those. thanks ladies. you are my heroes!
