I actually thought this pregnancy would be like my first with absolutely no symptoms except a growing belly.
I know it's early, im only 5 and a bit weeks but this exhaustion that kicked in a few days ago is just the pits. I have no energy, everything is a struggle. I just want to curl up in bed and sleep. Even after a 9 hr sleep i wake up still exhausted! When will this end!?
Today is housework day and i can usually get it all done in the couple hrs DD has her nap. I wiped down the kitchen table and benches and swept the floor and hung out the nappies. This took me 2 hours! and i was so tired i just gave up. My lower back ached an it felt like i had a stitch in my lower abdomen. No housework today. Just looking at everything that needs to be done this week makes me tired.
The other thing is my appetite, im not a massive eater anyways, i just eat when im hungry. ATM Appetite = none. Nothing, im NEVER hungry!
Yesterday i went untill 4.30pm with out a thing to eat except a cup of tea in the morning. DH had to let me know that i hadnt eaten all day and thats just not me! Im not nausiated, i just dont feel the need to eat, i almost feel "full" ??
TMI - For 2 days i was constipated and today it wont stop!
Arghh, this is just a vent as im feeling sorry for myself. I dont even feel pregnant, these symptoms r just ****ty. Im only 5 weeks for god sake! it sounds like im at the end of my pregnancy or something the way im carrying on! DH thinks it's all in my head as we did a pregnancy test yesterday (first one DH knew about lol) and pretty much since then ive been having "pregnancy symptoms" all of a sudden. He takes no notice.
Am off to the docs this arvo so i guess he will cop an earfull too.
