Second Trimester is suppose to be Easier.. Right?
 
At least I always heard the 2nd trimester was when you were suppose to feel your best.
I feel slightly better but..
I am still exhausted, still have nausea (and vomiting), I feel even more emotional then before and now I am plagued with headaches.

The only difference is the smell-sensitivity and having to pee as often.

I wonder if this is normal or not? I guess even in your second trimester you are still pregnant and still going to have those pregnancy symptoms.

This weekend kind of sucks, my DH is out of state now visiting family for a few days and I have been feeling helpless today taking care of things at the house. :( I never realized how big of a help he was until now.

Sometimes you feel better sometimes you don't. Some ladies just feel icky the whole time. I usually have more energy and feel more pregnant and as I got to the end of the trimester I got more excited :). Wohoo for being 15 weeks.

Uhm not ALWAYS. I didn't have a horrible first trimester. I did get nauseous at first but I wasn't throwing up constantly or anything... My REAL nausea set in like 10-14 weeks ish? I forget exactly but I know it was towards the end and I was so mad! Haha that's when I was throwing up. Exhaustion was my number one pregnancy symptom till about 18 weeks. I could barely get off the couch. I started to feel better but your never completely there. I can actually stay up a little late and finish watching a movie now unlike before where I was out at 8:30 every night. But I'm still tired... Not near as much energy as pre pregnancy. The second trimester is just different not really easier. (for me at least) I mean getting a bump is uncomfortable for sleeping and sometimes you feel you can't get up or bend over. Haha. My heartburn has been through the roof. That keeps me up for hours at a time. My boobs are constantly leaking. My feet and back hurt more. I think every trimester has its ups and downs.

I've known some people who feel great their whole pregnancy & some who feel crappy the whole time. I think it varies. :hug: I hope that it gets easier for you so you can enjoy the pregnancy!

I go back and forth with the nausea...still! I have only thrown up twice and they were both in the 1st tri, but my sister was sick her entire pregnancy with her 2nd baby. I get winded very easily and can barely clean one room in my house. However, you are just at the beginning of your 2nd tri, so give it time, who knows, maybe next week you will feel loads better! I hope this is the case for you:)

I noticed I am more tired now than I was in the first trimester. I had a pretty easy, no morning sickness first trimester, so other than being tired, I'm feeling good.

My nausea didn't fully stop until I was closer to 18 weeks. My fatigue has never left and I've become more emotional in the second trimester. Things are always up in the air with each pregnancy. You can't really compare it to another, even your own past ones.

I started feeling better in the second trimester but it was gradual. I don't think I felt completely different until around 20 weeks. Everyone and every pregnancy is different though. I hope that you get a little time to enjoy your pregnancy!!
