Is anyone else just feeling really faint? I can't remember this symptom with my other 4 but its horrible this time. Just perfect to keep my severe nausea company. Maybe it's due to my age but wow this pregnancy is kicking my butt. I have alway had easy pregnancies and deliveries but this time not so much.
I am not dehydrated and I'm always snacking but I keep getting to the point of blacking out.
I was just curious how everyone else was feeling?
I did through the first trimester with baby 1 but I was unaware I was expecting until I was 13 weeks (false negatives, including blood test) and didn't know that probably grazing would have been helpful. It sounds like you're doing that, so it's probably just unique to this pregnancy or just this part of it. We all know a lot changes fast and our bodies take a hit because of it.
I hope it's temporary and you feel better or figure out a way to manage it. Maybe another lady will have an idea you haven't tried. I hope they say so if they do. I'll bee watching. I expect nausea to hit stronger at some point soon!
Usually when I move to fast, or haven't eaten or need to drink something...I would also ask your doctor. It could be your prenatal as well...I have to switch to a prescription rather than OTC while pregnant.

Surprise baby! due 3/27/2017
I get that way off and on during my pregnancies- not so bad that I black out or anything and mine is more related to nausea I think- I feel like I'm going to pass out all of a sudden especially if I get overheated. Tonight I felt that way after I ate which made no sense (I wasn't sure I was going to keep it down for a while but then I felt okay as far as that went so it was just weird). I think it's normal for some pregnancies but it can also be a sign of sugar imbalance or anemia (I don't have either so?) so you might just call the nurse and see what she says if you feel uncomfortable about it. Also, I don't know how old you are but this is my first pregnancy in my 30s (well I just turned 30 beginning of the month lol) and I already can tell a difference in the level of exhaustion...gah- getting old sucks!! And, I want at least one more after this one so I can only imagine how it's going to be with the next one if I'm already this tired at 5 weeks =)
