So Sick Of Everything

i don't mean to sound like i'm whining - but i am so sick of everything right now! - all i want to do is sleep... and i'm finding it sooo hard to get up and go to work everyday. It's probably because i'm still only in my first trimester but i generally feel nauseous all day and just want to stay in bed... i feel like i never get enough sleep! i could care less about anything at work and just wish i could tell everyone to shove it... i guess it's the emotions right now with the crazy hormones, but i feel so depressed when Mondays come especially, as my husband works late all week except for Thurs, Fri and weekend... so basically I don't really get to see him much during the week, since i work Mon-Fri... and i know it could be worse because we both have good jobs, good income, and we do have weekends together, but i guess since i'm so emotional, i'm just feeling a little bad for myself (i know, the world's smallest violin....) i guess i'm just not used to feeling lethargic and mopey all day long - i'm usually a really energetic person who gets things done and done right, but right now, I feel as though i can barely keep my eyes open... anybody else feeling this frustrated or am i just driving myself crazy?

I feel the same way you do. On top of it I chase my three and four year old little girls around all day long!!! I am ten and a half weeks right now so I am slowly starting to get more energy. The morning sickness still has not let up though. It really does get better. With my girls I felt like I could run a marathon during the second trimester. How far a long are you in the first trimester?

Are you kidding? Thats an every day occurance over here. It seems like the further I get in my pregnancy the more tired and sick I get. Its aweful and it doesnt matter howmuch you sleep it never helps. I am in the process of keeping myself awake in my office right now as we speak. I hate everyone right about now and I am so d__n tired I dont give a flying f*ck about my paper work...etc! Dont worry youre not alone

:-) I am worn out all the time also. It goes beyond feeling tired, it is more like I just can't seem to find energy. I have even taken to sitting down in the shower to shave, just to give myself a break from standing up. I rush through the cleaning part in the shower just to get to the shaving part. lol my legs have never stayed so smooth.:-)

hi girls - thanks for making me feel semi-normal... andrea, i am due October 18, so apparently i am 10+ weeks along, possibly 11, and if you've read any other posts i've been on, i have no friggin' clue how to be sure exactly how far along i am...i'm glad to hear you were feeling a ton better during your 2nd semester with your two girls... and of course, i shouldn't be b___hing because you sound like you have your hands full with two kids... i think it's more that i don't want to be here at work is all... hey robyn - i've got piles of paperwork stacking up as we speak and i can't see the real surface of my desk ... got my office door closed and locked and just want to curl up (or hurl up) whatever comes first... just want to quit... sooooo bad!!!

You have exactly captured how I have been feeling these past weeks. Like Andrea, I also have to chase after my 6 y/o and 2 y/o and I also work full time. It does get better and by second trimester you will feel like a totally different person. Hang in there everyone! It helps to go through this with people who know exactly how I am feeling. My husband tries but he's not really much comfort for me....

Ohhhh... I'm so sorry! I know exactly what you mean. Some days are worse than others, but I've had a couple weeks like that straight! This weekend I actually felt pretty good - the nausea actually reduced to the point I could eat - (I'm 11w2d today - and due Oct 15, if that helps you any!) But today.... MISERABLE again!

 

Heidi - March 28

You sound just like me a week ago. I'm at 10.5 weeks and I feel just great today. Like before I was pg. I hope I don't relapse into m/s again! Hang in there! It gets better as time goes on! The first 10 weeks for me were just horrible!!! You're not alone.

thanks all - at least i know there might be a light at the end of the tunnel - right now i just want to cry for no reason at all... i know, totally pathetic, but i can't help it!

 

Stephanie - March 28

rb I know exactly how you feel in fact Im searching for other schedules for that I can quit. So far no luck but I have to stay for insurance and then I want to stay home with baby but financially my man and I have to continue to work.

 

rb - March 28

hey stephanie - how far along are you... i just looked into maternity leave info and it seems like forever away to me... i live in bc, canada and we are not able to start leave until 6 weeks before due date... i may have gone off the deep end by then :)

 

Stephanie - March 28

Im 11 weeks 5 days today and boy do I want to walk off sooooo badly. I live in So. Cal in LA County and I think maternity leave is 1 month prior to due date and 6 weeks after delivery. I want to stay home with baby but my man wants the extra money. Our income together is awesome. I told him if I don't find something he wil have to find another job for extra cash. LOL yeah RIGHT thats gonna happpen. Im already going off the deep end b/c I am the property manager of these apts. and everyone comes to me complaining worse than kids do. Not only that but out of the 40+ hours that I work I only get an a__sistant for 24 hrs a week. Its seriously killing me!!!

 

rb - March 28

holy c___p - you are busy busy! the only reason i haven't quit is because i'm in the midst of purchasing our first home and i need to prove my income, although hubby makes enough - his credit is bad from the past and he owns his own business... which basically means it looks better when one of the couple is considered an employee of a company... nightmare... anyhow, i have already submitted paperwork to confirm my salary/employment and am not sure if they call to confirm or not - but once we find a place, i am soooo out of here....are you nauseous at all?

The nautiosness comes and goes now and I can get out of bed better than before but augggghhhhhh I want out of here!! Too many reports and I am salary too so it sucks if I have to stay after to finish reports. I ve sometimes stayed until after 11:45 PM. It so sucks and I don't think that I've mentioned I have a 10 yr old and a 12 yr old too. You got it very very busy! I so envy that you'll be able to stop working. I wish I could at least take a break for a year but I don't think I'll be able too. I really don't know what to do. I thought about doing the candle parties and stamp parties but I don't think you can actually make that much and I want a steady income. I also thought about cleaning houses and going grocery shopping for seniors but I dunno. Are you gonna do anything on the side??

 

Stephanie - March 28

I'm not sure if the parties do good unless you actually apply yourself so if anything I would do them on the side hoping for a little return just to get out of the house alittle. What I'd really like to do is open a laundry mat b/c they are self served and you don't need employees. You just pay some space rent and insurance but Im sure that the take home has to be incredible. I alos liked your idea but I want to be home more. That would take me out of the office and into a free-er environment but would take me away from baby too. I hate being cooped up in the office especially by myself Im just stuck here with reports, inquiries, telephone (mutiple lines) bills and everything else. I really hate it too. I have been scratching too on my thighs and my arms I think its stress Im even loosing alittle hair. Im up to the skies in stress!! Too bad disability does'nt pay enough Huh I cant even afford to take leave. AAAUUHGHGHHG what do we do??

Yeah my paper work is completely neglected. The phone rings in my office and I just wait for someone else to get it. Has anyone seen that TV comercial where they are talking about the people who start their mornings out wrong? Its frickin hilarious but now it makes me cry because thats how I feel. Like in the comercial, there is a lady out front watering her lawn and the paper boy rides by on his bike and rings his little bell and she hoses him down! Or another girl is in the elevator and someone is clearly yelling, "HOLD THE ELEVATOR" and she just rolls her eyes and pushed the 'close door' b___ton. Man...dont you ladies wish we could declare pregnancy a national holiday and be paid for the whole thing and just go home and sleep and be catered on hand and foot and get like a senior discount, but it would be a pregnancy discount on things like chocolate, veggies, pepperoni sticks....and anything else you might be craving that day. Sigh...sounds nice. Now I want to go home...and I really want a peperoni stick...

P.S. Also another thing that p__ses me off...people constantly telling me how I need to exercise yada yada yada. DUH, I know this but at this point getting out of my office chair, off the couch, and out of bed is exercise enough for me! I am to d__n tired to leave me alone. Besides the doc told me my wait is perfect right now! You have those people telling you how much they gained during their pregnancies and youre like uh huh......and act like youre listening but in reality youre picturing them riding by your house while youre outside with the hose.....ha ha ha ha ha
