Facing food ... extremely tired?

Hello ladies

Can anyone give me any tips please ... i am struggling to get enthusiastic about eating at the moment ... the thought of it makes me feel sick and once i have eaten i can't stop wreching (sorry TMI!) I am soooo tired. I seem to be just eating fruit, cereal bars, strawberry YOP drink and chocloate.

Any tips /advice welcome?

Hi Knighty

I have been the same, just going into the kitchen was enough to send me running for the loo. All i can say is don't worry about what your eating if you find something that stays down then go with it. I had to see the DR during week 8 'cos i was being so ill and the DR said just to go with what ever stays down and try to stay hydrated, which was easier said than done at the time.

My friend survived most of her 1st trimester on pink iced doughnuts from M&S 'cos it was the only thing she could face :snigger: , and her little girl is now 6 mnths and gorgeous so it doesn't seem to have done her much harm.

All i will say is that it should get a bit better in a few weeks, i've gone from being sick 6-7 times a day to 1-2 now i'm in week 11 (sorry of TMI), and although i still don't want to cook or prepare food i am finding more things appealing even if DH has to do the actual cooking.

I hope some if this helps


:xxx3:

Oh yeah the DR also told me i had to make sure i was having afternoon naps and lots of rest, but apparently the tiredness gets a bit easier in 2nd trimester but i'm not there yet so can't say for sure.

I survived the first 13 weeks on rice krispies. :D

Caz is right, just eat whatever you can, little and often. I found that drinking at the same time as eating made it worse so maybe try stopping that if you do it? Maybe try and get some carbs in you to help with the energy - some weetabix or something like that? Try and eat something as soon as you wake, before you get out of bed, even if it's only a biscuit or cereal bar and then don't move for half an hour or so until it settles.

Hope you feel better soon, I know how miserable it can be. But it does get better (she says still being sick at 29 weeks :innocent:).

Aw Knighty, the 1st trimester can be really hard, and the tiredness, nausea/sickness, not wanting to eat, can make you feel pretty miserable at times.

I second what cazd said, eat whatever you can face, and that will stay down! Don't worry too much about what that actually is!!! I saw my mw, and she said much the same to me, when I told her I was more or less living off of crisps, toast, and potatoes!!

It's really hard, but even when you feel you really can't face food, try to have something, because I found, hunger could make the nausea even worse.

The tiredness can be extreme, and like no other tiredness!! I think I basically went to work, and slept, during my 1st trimester, can't remember having the energy to do much else!!


Take care hun xxx

Hmmmm... I have not personal experience with the sickness issue - I really only had mild nausea when I was PG and then not very often. I did find that eating something small or drinking a bit of milk actually settled it for me.
It is often advised that you eat something small even before you get out of bed in the morning - eg 2 water biscuits or a small ginger biscuit with a bit of water. Wait a few minutes and then get up. Eat whatever you are able to eat when you are able to eat. If all you can manage is fruit then so be it - but do make sure to take your multivits - preferably with a tiny snack. Rather eat tiny bits of food 5 to 8 times a day and keep it in than force down 2 to 3 "good" meals and deliver it into the loo 5 minutes later.

As for the tiredness... My little man is 2 and I am still waiting for my energy to return...

Poor thing. Eat what you can and try not to worry. Your baby is getting all the nutrients it needs!!

it should ease up in a few weeks. I know that is not much comfort now, but it will! It took me til about 14 weeks to feel a bit more normal!

Hi Knighty
Hope you enjoyed the cheese - ohh I am on a cheese craze to.
I have found that milk has really helped with the nausea especially early in the morning and before I go to bed - not to much about 3/4 of a mug. Also I try and have a bowl of soup at night, so much easier to digest.

Good luck sweetie and hope you are feeling better.
