Default when did you start feeling better?

I'm 15 1/2 weeks along in my first pregnancy and I'm still so exhausted! I've heard that in the 2nd trimester you are supposedly starting to feel energized. That has definitely not happened yet. Also morning sickness isn't completely gone...although I only have it about once a week. I'm beginning to think I'm going to feel like this for the next 6 months which is kind of stressing me out...

Did you guys start to feel better after the 1st trimester? When did it happen for you?

Definitely started to perk up in my 2nd trimester. The first one SUCKED...I want to say it was a couple of weeks into my second tri that my emotions stabilized and I started to feel better all around (I also had a trip to France and Italy planned so that may have helped matters some).

Hang in there!

LOL, I still don't feel better! I was sick every day well into my third trimester and have been exhausted ever since J was born! But hopefully things look up for you soon.

I started feeling better at about 2.5-3 months. Everyone is different though. I hope you feel better soon!

I would say sometime early into my second trimester with all but one of my children. With my first pregnancy, there was very little issue with fatigue and sickness.

Hang in there. Hopefully you will start to feel better very soon.

I felt better about halfway through each time, so 20 weeks? Sorry it's so rough for you. Hang in there!

I had 24/7 sickness from 7-18 weeks. However, I didn't actually feel good until she was out of me. I went from exhausted, to morning sickness, to emergency surgery/bedrest, to a cramping back, to hospital stays, to minor acid reflux, to a long labor. It was a long pregnancy. I was so glad when she was out of me and I felt great the day that we left the hospital.

I hope you feel better soon.
