Hate being pregnant
I don't know if these symptoms are normal. It feels like I am the only one feeling this way. I am 6 weeks pregnant. I wake up every morning feeling sick. I feel so nauseas. I have a terrible migraine and feel so hot and bothered even when it is a bit chilly like today). I don't feel like doing anything. And mainly when you are pregant, you crave certain foods, well I actually feel so nauseas that I have gone off food altogther. I am at the point where I don't eat anything because I feel sick. I have back pain like you cannot beleive and sharp pains in my abdoman. I am tired of feeling this way everyday. I can't even go to the shopping centre without getting back pain and feeling sick. I cannot go out with friends or stay up late anymore. I know that being pregnant is a beautiful thing but I am hating it. Is it normal to feel this way ( mean feeling so sick after only 6 weeks)? Is there any medication I can take?

If you read this webiste, you will see that these symptoms are very common. It gets better after 12 weeks. Try eating small frequent meals and having try toast first thing in the morning. Consult your doctor before taking any medication.
