Ok I've noticed ever since I've gotten pregnant I've become very anti-social especially at work. I'm hoping it's just a first trimester thing. I find myself avoiding conversation, small talk, talk about the baby, how I'm feeling etc. I literally want to finish work and go home and eat and sleep and I'm normally the chatty Kathy of the office!

Just wondering if this is normal..and how everyone else feels about social interactions right now either at work, at the grocery store, etc. ?

I don't think your being anti-social, Im a sahm and have been avoiding going out or talking to anyone. I normally love to talk to people but I'm so nauseas that just talking will drain all my energy out and I'll feel sick again. It will pass

It's happened to me all 4 pregnancies. It's lame. And it especially stinks because DH is super social and it's been a strain for us because I don't really want to do anything and he'd love to see people multiple times a week.

Right there with you Christine. SO is very social. Anywhere we go, we run into someone he knows. He also creates a lot of business contacts by going out - referrals from existing, etc. - because he does IT work for the hospitality industry, so his side work has dropped. I just don't want to be bothered. The consensus is that he's killed me and buried me in the garden.

Is it just a first trimester thing or an entire pregnancy thing?

I know it's first half of pg for me because I feel so yucky. But second half of pregnancy I am way more social, relaxed, and happy.
