I took a screenshot of the symptoms and their explanations and sent that to my boyfriend. All I said was, this is why I've been so tired. He said, oh that makes sense. End of story. He hasn't asked me why I'm tired since then. Good luck.

Just tell him that it takes a lot to make a baby and remember that you aren't just making a baby your making the placenta as well which is like having a whole extra organ it takes a lot of energy to make babies and that's why your tired and just tell him that all pregnant women have a big change in their hormones which makes you sad depressed angry etc etc that's what I told my boyfriend I know he doesn't entirely understand but he's more understanding and even tells me he's worried when I havnt taken a nap during the day ( most days I take a nap because I work early mornings and struggle to sleep much at night )

I make my husband watch the little video's on here and other apps that explains where the baby is at developmentally and what my body is doing. Even if he doesn't want to watch I hijack the remote and threaten home interior design shows if he doesn't lol. Got to do what we've got to do to make them understand.  They are basically just cavemen sometimes in how they think and show emotion.

My husband says the more I read the more I say is wrong with me! He just doesn't get it it's not like I'm pretending to constantly be nauseous!

Yes! I feel exactly the way you do my boyfriend says I'm not broken and can continue to do all that I've been doing I'm not lazy but I sure am tired I cook clean after him three large dogs and they are not potty trained I'm exhausted most the time along with nausea it's not fake but he says I read to much on this and other sites and it's just an excuse ugh I wish he could be pregnant lol
