im so fed up being pregnant already :-(

The title might make me sound like an ungrateful cow, but I'm not honestly I'm only 9weeks and its taken me a.long time to get here. But I'm so fed up with the excess burping, major gas and worst of all feeling hot all the time, I also get light bleeding at times making it hard to do things round the house and constantly having to take it easy.  I feel completely useless, headaches and exhaustion also aren't helping. I was overweight before I conceived and now i feel
even more of a whale :-(

Has anyone gone through any of the above that can give me some advice on how to get through the rest of this pregnancy feeling a bit better? I just want to cry I'm so exhausted and useless and fat :-(

I totally know how you fell. Im also overweight and now i feel like a total cow at times. As i can no longer see my feet and my belly sticks out past my bbs! For the first 12 weeks i was on strict pelvic rest and moderate bed rest with having 2 kids at home 24/7! Now i find out im on moderate bed rest the whole pregnancy with a 4 and 7 yr old plus the house to take care of. I know its a lot but you have to do what is best for baby. Im sure your partner does not feel this way about you. If you need to talk im always here to listen!

i feel the same way but not cz i feel tired or gas or being overweight as im very skinny. but iv had one baby and everything went fine but i lost a baby back in december and found out i have a uterus problem and im now nearly 18 weeks pregnant and im constantly in pain with my back and sides and doctors cant find out wa is wrong with me all i can do is rest through the rest of my pregnancy so im constantly sat or lay down and i feel bad then as i cant get yp and run around with my 2 year old as i end up in servere pain. so i have another 22 weeks of doing nothing and it dont help that my partner works nights and we only see him in the afternoon so i have to run a house and bring up a child to whilst im suppose to be resting. but iv so far had 3 scans cz of my uterus problem and i now have a scan on the 1st august and this is why im puttin up with all the pain that causes me to cry cz me and my partner tried for nearly a year to have another baby and after losing one baby we didn want to go through it again. trust me once you have had your 1st scan you will get excited and not mind doing what you have to, to keep your little one safe. congrats to

Having a baby is a Blessing from God, that's what i blive. Also the preg journey is a mother's sacrifice. would you think again all these hardship when you have your baby in your arms? Trust in God, and never ever think that you are bored or fed up hving a baby n useless or fat. there are many people out there who r obese n cant get preg. among them you are the blessed n lucky one. and Im 100% sure that you will forget all these hadships once you see your baby in your arms. Now just smile and enjoy your journey. Good Luck :)

I cant relate in every way but the exhaustion way...  I was so exhausted and still am at timess....  I have continued working and usually half way through the day I jusst would die...  I kept waiting for my energy boost to come and things got slightly better after 15 weeks but I still couldnt find the energy to do anything until after 25 weeks then lately i hae been getting some cleaning done...  but still afternoon naps make eerything easier.

Pregnancy is always fun but in the end its worth is. No one thinks your a "cow" or anythinq else but u just qotta take it easy and listen to your body. Take me for example I haven't had an easy pregnancy but its okay I am still happy to even have my baby inside me and have him stronq and healthy. I've been in and out of the hospital I also qot pneumonia and when I was about 15 weeks they thouqht I was qoinq to miscarry. I am now 31 weeks and everythinq is qoinq qood. I still work till this day . Don't qet me wronq I do qet way more exauhsted and I had morninq sickness untill I was almost 6 months then it stopped and now it has come back . And it wasn't just in the morninq it lasted ALL day lonq.

So like I said just relax it'll qet easier . Goodluck

Hormones, honey!   They make EVERYTHING seem 200 times worse.  They should even out some around the second trimester!

Thanks very much for all the comments, I know how hard it is to conceive as I was 5 weekday away from my first ivf consultation, as for the gift from god, maybe it was but after the way my minister treated me I'll never be back in the church again.
My partner is amazing and I do feel bad for moaning when I read how much pain some of you ladies are going through, good luck everyone for when your little ones arrive

Everyone goes through different struggles mama . But us ladies have to stick together and in some way or another we can all relate to one another. I don't know what happend with u and the minister but. I'm glad u have an amazing partner. I know for a fact my husband is beyond amazing. He's my rock. I couldn't do it without him and of course there's GOD who has helped us throuqh our struggles . God bless u and your family.

I can't wait untill my little 1 arrives . 31 weeks down :)

I understand what it's like. Not everyone likes pregnancy or even being pregnant. I hated it with undying passion, but I'm eternally grateful to have my daughter. Don't feel bad for complaining. I do hate to tell you though, but it will only get worse. The 3rd trimester is awful. Relish it while you're still early!!!!

I had nonstop nausea and vomiting from 6 weeks until after I delivered. I bled almost the whole first trimester and was on bed rest while this happened. I made it to the second trimester and resumed activities, but the nausea and constant vomiting continued. By 25 weeks I hadn't gained the first pound and was put on bed rest due to preterm labor. By the third trimester I had spd, severe hyperemesis, and preterm labor. I was on bed rest until 37 weeks when my midwife approved me to come off. I gave birth exactly a week later! But, I'll tell you...the first time I saw  my little girl, it was worth it. I would get so mad when ppl would tell me this while I was pregnant, because I knew she was a blessing. It just didn't make me feel any better. We were living with my elderly grandparents bc they were having trouble living by themselves and in the end, they ended up caring for me. It'll get better!

But I can definitely understand feeling tired of being pregnant. I was tired of it too, but then when Lexi hit 2 months I got baby fever again. Funny how that happens! LOL!

I puked all the time till 20 weeks and had bed rest. I totally understand. I slept and puked. I couldn't function couldn't work just slept and puked :( but it was worth every moment I say as I hold my sleeping daughter in my arms. I can't wait to do it again
