12 weeks, very uncomfortable, looking for some relief..?
I am 12 weeks pregnant this thursday.. I have 2 major complaints & am curious to see if anyone has any solutions out there.. Thanks for the feedback
- Everything I eat seems to sit in my stomach and make me completely miserable, uncomfortable, and sick.. I understand that digestion slows down but its very very uncomfortable.. my belly bulges and bloats up, i cant seem to eat anything w/o this feeling..
-I am suffering from insomnia.. Went to bed at 10ish last night only to awake at 12.. tossed and turned until about 3, finally i got up went upstairs and sat on the couch.. didnt go back to sleep until 7am- I had to call out of work today.. My back, neck, and shoulders seem to tense up and many thoughts run through my mind
I have both. I have indigestion. The food sits there and I am already showing, but after a meal I swear I look 9 months pregnant. I try to eat smaller meals and I also do not eat lots of fat or fried food. Sometimes tums helps.
Insomnia is something I have had for years - but they went away because I was so tired for the first weeks of pregnancy. Now that I am 13 weeks I have the insomnia back so I understand. Honestly, I have never been able to deal with it effectively other than Ambien - but I'm not taking that now. I try not to freak when I get insomnia because it only makes it worse - I just let myself stay up and do things that I would have done during the day but didn't get finished.
I'm sorry, hang in there. Sometimes I think pregnancy insomnia is trying to get women ready for newborn insomnia!
