I'm 12.5 weeks and just feel so tired and grumpy. I hate it. Before I became pregnant I was taking Holy Basil for anxiety, Drenamin (supplement) for my adrenals, and drinking 2 cups of coffee per day. I stopped all of that when I got my BFP.

Has anyone gotten over the hump? Or is it just me and not sleeping well for the last week?

I am feeling better. I am a little behind you though. I am still tired a lot. But I didin't give up the coffee. I have pretty much had a give up lots of things that everyone can have when they get the craving. Since I have huge problems with insulin resistance I have to stick to lower carb and less sugar items. I can't have diary or fruit items till lunch time an even then sometimes I have to wait till dinner time. So, this time around I decided to give up diet coke. I have been addicted to diet coke since I was pregnant with my oldest, she'll be 10 in Sept just before this little one is born. So I choose to keep the coffee an get rid of the diet sodas. Since I found out I was pg I've had maybe a half a diet coke when we were eating out

I'm still pretty tired, blah and grumpy. To make matters worse I'm still a loose canon and me and DH have been having blow ups like crazy! I totally know after I've taken it too far and I always feel bad!

nausea wise I feel awesome. I can finally eat, for the most part, without feeling too bad afterwards. Lots of things still don't sound good though. Sleep wise.... ugh. Still not sleeping great. Sooo tired.

I'm not in the honeymoon phase yet either. I usually don't hit there until week 15-17. I can't wait. I am so over this.

I just feel like between pregnancy exhaustion, keeping up with the house, running a daycare, and my 2-year old's tantrums, I'm about ready for the funny farm.

No, not really. My nausea is still hanging around. In fact I've had to run to the bathroom at work multiple times already today to ralph. I'm tired all the time too. The honeymoon stage can come anytime now.

It's strange. On the one hand I do get more bursts of energy and have doing more cleaning.
But the last 2 weeks I've had a rotten feeling on my stomach almost 24/7. I'm crabby too. And I'm still gagging---mostly when I'm in the kitchen or bathroom.

I'm holding out hope that I'm a few weeks away from turning a big corner.

I feel pretty good most days. I have my normal energy and no more nausea. The main thing that is bothering me is allergies. I get horrible headaches from allergies. I can't take the allergy meds though. The "normal" ones don't do anything but make me SUPER tired and the "D" ones aren't approved during pregnancy, and even if they were I can't take them because they make me a total insomniac. I can't sleep at all, so I just have to suffer everyday and use peppermint oil on my temples before I go to bed at night.

I'm a week ahead of you and my vomiting and nausea took a turn for the worst about week and a half, two weeks ago. No end in site yet.

Not feeling sick anymore, I thought I turned a corner on the exhaustion but it comes in waves. Like one day I'll feel great and the next I will be falling asleep at my desk. Its so unpredictable. I hope it evens out soon..
