    Default Mackay - due 26th sept - support

    Hey everyone,

    soooo this is my second pregnancy and I'm surprised and upset with how crappy I feel.

    my first pregnancy I didn't even feel pregnant and my lifestyle choices I wasn't proud of a diet that was takeaway and chocolate no exercise and yes I had some smokes during it.

    This time 12months planning, fitness freak, lost 20kg, healthy diet, quit smoking 3 years ago, don't drink doing everything by the book and I feel like crap!

    I do do have a 5 year old with autism but I have never felt to tired and yuck, everything hurts, I have no energy, back ache, boobs are like melons already and hubby works away and we have no family here and I work!

    I thought this this was going to be easy like first time! I guess I'm older and have another child but I'm also fitter and healthier. Go figure.

    We we haven't told anyone due to being high risk and won't announce until 13week mark - long way to go yet suffering in silence

    so I hope to find support here so I don't have to do this in silence till announcement day.

    Thanks, I'm just a bit shocked cause my first was a breeze I worked right up to labour and nothing was a problem. This one I've done everything by the book and I've got folate, b12 deficiencies and tired and nauseas like nothing else. But doctor informs me feeling tired and sick is a good sign. We miscarried in September. I just hope it goes away soon cause I'm a active person and have a little asd son who I need to attend to a lot. Trying to remind myself to enjoy.

    No two pregnancies are ever the same. I feel your pain though, this pregnancy has been by far my most difficult. And having other children to tend to definitely takes it out of you. I hope you feel a bit of relief from it all soon.
