I have become SUCH a hermit.

I am mostly just tired, therefore being at home and relaxing is most appealing but before I became pregnant, I was very social, barely sat still and enjoyed being busy.. not now! Now I like being at home and I don't really feel up to visitors all that often, I definately don't feel like going out. The only time I feel 'up to' doing any thing is when it's just Chris and I hanging out.. like going out for dinner or going shopping.

Just getting off my butt and showering has become quite the painful task
Don't even get me started on leaving the house!

Am I normal? Hahaha!

Is this happening to anyone else?

I hate going on the subway every morning now mainly due to large crowds of people. I've started to show obviously for a couple of weeks now and no one offers their seat. Some days I'd rather sleep through dinner time or be alone. I leave the house but I tire very easily these days.. feet hurt a lot.

Yes, I get tired quickly, and of course have to pee every couple or so hours. I keep to myself a lot, but there are also times I get super lonely and have to walk my dog or go to the store to get out of the house.

Yes! I was talking to a pregnant friend over the phone and told her that I think I've chased off my friends and family. I am not up to company, but I do get lonely, so I call friends and family a lot to try to keep my mind off being so sick. She's one of the three ladies I know that understand and help me keep my mind off it. Everyone else is sick of me. lol But at least she's due within a month of me and can complain right back about pregnancy!

Yeah, going out seems pointless anymore, an exhausting/ adventurous day for me involves driving somewhere to get some food

Yep Im an absolute HERMIT. I must admit I am being a little more adventurous now that i'm into the 2nd trimester (feeling a bit better) But I would MUCH rather blob at home with DD and DH and as for going out at night, it seems like such a good idea at the time, then come time to get ready to go out (for dinner or whatever it might be) I dread the event! hahahah Putting makeup on and finding clothes that look any good disguising my ever growing bump (ok so Im still small but to me it's HUGE) It's just not fun at the moment.

I long for the day to go out and have a drink with mates again, but that has to wait until after the 9 months, and then some (for breastfeeding) BUT that first real night out when you are done breast feeding and have had some sleep is AMAZING!!!! I got SO drunk off 2 glasses of wine after my last pregnancy! Hahah Cheap night out huh!

For the record I never was much of a party animal b4 kids, but I do still enjoy the occassional blow out!

Yes for sure ! Am quite happy to stay at home and sleep or sit on my laptop. What makes it worse is when I am around anyone they iritate me for no reason at all so that all adds up to being antisocial also. I feel rather guilty about it....

Totally with you!!! My only adventures are with the husband, since he won't care what my issue for the moment happens to be (irritated, peeing every five minutes, etc). I try to keep myself company via my blog...that counts, I think?

Yes! I don't even want DH near me, I just sit in my room watching TV mostly(I am on bed rest), when anyone comes over to help I feel irritated by their presence,lol. It's awful but it will pass when we start feeling better.

I agree! I am a teacher and I am on summer break. I have to go back to work on Monday and I am not sure I am going to do it. I spent a lot of time sitting on my couch and trying not to puke! LOL!

Yep- I just want to be home! DH will sometimes walk up to the restaurant on the corner to have a beer b/c I am so boring, but really who wants to go sit while the other person drinks? really

I love to go out and wish I felt up to doing it. As it is I have been going to bed at 9pm. and thats because if I go to bed any earlier I have to get up in like 2 hours to pee anyway. So no going out for me.
We have invited some friends to come over this saturday for a bonfire and cookout. I hope I have the energy for that.

I was like that before pregnancy so nothing new for me. I hate social situations of any kind and barely go anywhere. I just don't like being around groups of people. One thing I did not do was press the ignore button on my phone but now I do. Id rather not talk to anyone on the phone either.
Thank you Jaidynsmum!

Ditto what everyone else has said. It's all I can do to get out and go to dinner. Ugh.

I was very anti social with my last one, and this one 1st trimester caused me to be anti social. when you dont feel well you don't feel much like socializing.
Thats my experience. I'm feeling a bit better and enjoying socializing more now.
