Miserable!

I am 29 weeks pregnant with my second boy (yay!!!!) and I could not be happier about another baby. My husband and I struggled for more than a year to conceive this time and I was so worried it wasn't going to happen. I love being a mommy...that being said...I am so miserable this time!!! My entire body aches, I rarely have a day where I am not sick, and I feel like I have no energy. I hate to complain because it makes me feel ungrateful. Could this just be where I am older this time? I will be 32 by the time this baby comes, and my first will be 5 years old. I am healthy and the doctor can't find anything actually wrong with me. Anyone else feel like a terrible human being for having a similar issue?

I had the opposite problem, my first was miserable and this one (boy #2) is the "ideal pregnancy". So glad because this will be my last pregnancy that things have went so well! But definitely happy that i only have 9 more days left tho

Thanks! I have a really supportive husband but I feel guilty every time I complain about how terrible I feel, I know he has to get tired of hearing about it. If one more person tells me that being pregnant was the time they felt best in their life I might scream! This is unpleasant. I can't wait to have this baby, when he comes out he is grounded for about 10 years for making mommy feel so bad. ;)

I'm 33 and body feel like garbage. It must be the age. My other 3 I had in my mid and early 20"s. I don't remember being this sick and in pain. O and I'm only 14 weeks!! Yeah, it's bad!! Lol we will make it. I guess we have to be strong. Good luck.
