This is my third and I have been since about week 5 so ill I am not functioning normally. I was sick suring my other two pregnancies, but functional. I worked, and took some online classes during the first trimester with my second baby.
With this one, I lost 10 pounds from week 5 to week 9. Its not just the nausea and vomiting. I am tired in a way I have never been tired before. I sleep from the time my kids go to sleep 8pm, until they get up 7am usually. If my husband is off I sleep most of the day. If he's working I come down to the couch and sleep and my 5 year old thank god, helps out with my 2 year old. I lay on the couch all day. I only get up to go to the bathroom. I was on progesterone which my doc took me off last week because I was losing so much weight and becoming dehydrated from not eating or drinking.
Since then I can say I don't feel like I want to die anymore, but I'm still not normal. I've been tracking calories to try and maintain my weight. This is not normal but there's nothing the doctor can do. I'm 11 weeks, and I know that it gets better after this trimester, but I am so tired of sleeping, watching tv and being on the laptop (when I'm awake, it sucks its boring). Basically anything I can do without getting up. I don't move from the couch, when I try to get up to do something, I get nausous, light headed and out of breath. Part of it is related to very low blood pressure, and I did have this issue with my other pregnancies, but its so bad that I have passed out if I'm standing too long. Again there's nothing they can do about it.
Was anyone else this sick? I know some women go through this, but its very depressing. Last year this time I was running 5 miles 3-4 times a week. And now I barely walk other areas of the house. I'm scared that I will feel this was the rest of the pregnancy. This has been the biggest factor in not having anymore kids.
