Feeling weird
Hi there
I only "know" Paris from the CS forum. I am about 6 weeks pregnant and never thought that I would feel so weird. I am constantly anxious and very emotional. Also, I feel sickish all the time but it's difficult to describe - I don't actually get the urge to vomit but have this hollow feeling in my stomach which seems to want to be filled all the time with food, but I don't know what to eat! Well, I mean, I know what I should be eating but don't feel like many things. I hope that it's a baby in there and not a tapeworm! Also a strange taste in my mouth all the time. Getting out of bed in the mornings is a major effort and doing anything at all actually. I don't feel like myself, it's like something has taken over my body. Anyone else feel strange, and not just ill? I go to the Doc on Tuesday for my first scan and I am so scared for this in case something has gone wrong. I feel as though I'm not thinking rationally at all.

All of this is normal.
