Symptoms earlier and stronger than past pregnancies

Postby photofashionista » Mon Apr 18, 2016 4:35 pm

This would be my 8th pregnancy (3 live births) and I'm feeling symptoms so strong and early this time. The nausea and fatigue and sleeplessness with vivid dreams started before 4 weeks! Pretty much as soon as I had a positive test.

Is anyone else dealing with this also? It's going to be a long first trimester.

Mine started sooner with this one too. I didn't get sore boobs, nausea, fatigue until 6+ weeks with my first and I started getting it before I got a positive test with this one. I'm hoping that means that it will end sooner lol - wishful thinking.

You are not alone here! I'm 18 weeks into my second pregnancy and so far this has been nothing like my first. My first was a walk in the park, very little morning sickness and just overall easy. This one however has been an absolute torture pregnancy so far. Morning sickness struck before I even got my bfp and has been AWFUL ever since. Unfortunately even at 18 weeks it doesn't look like it is going to end anytime soon :( I literally have not left the house in months, except for dr appointments. I am also suffering from terrible insomnia, backache, headaches, heartburn, the whole nine yards. I will say the one thing that has kept me going is giving up the whole "you'll feel better in the 2nd trimester" idea. In fact I think my sickness has been worse these past few weeks. I've just accepted that it may hang around the entire pregnancy so in the event it does decide to disappear for good it will be a nice surprise!

Haven, that's so strange isn't it? Mine have all but dissipated. I'm 7 1/2 weeks. I do have a lingering headache though.

MargaretandCo I'm so sorry!!!! That's horrible! I really hope it lets up for you soon.

It is strange. Mine has gotten SO MUCH BETTER in the past week. I started taking 1/2 B6 & 1/2 a unisom together at night (per my Dr) and I don't know if it's that or just time that has made it a lot better. My fatigue has gotten a lot better too though. I'm 10+1 so hopefully on the up and up and in the next few weeks it will all be gone!
