I am 21 weeks today, and for the last couple of weeks I have been tired and and nauseous like in my first trimester. I don't know what's going on. I started actually throwing up yesterday morning and haven't been able to eat or drink much since. I still feel so awful. I have checked for a fever or any other flu-like symtoms with nothing showing up. Is there a reason I could be feeling like this? And is there anything that I can do to make myself feel better?

aww honey you just entered your 2nd trimester., it doesnt just stop once you hit week 20, lol. For many women (myself included) I never stopped vomiting or having those sick feelings. You may be one of the unlucky ones, but its not so bad, Im 33 weeks now and I can pull over and puke and keep on drivin, lmao. Try ginger, or they have these wrist bands, thats supposed to stop nausea. Finally my doc gave me promithyzine, but i just deal with it, cause I hate pills. it will get better, or it wont youll just get better at handleing it!! good luck sweetie.

Hi! Im 23 wks and when i was bout 20-21 wks i started to feel the same way you were.... it was 1st trimester all over again!!! But now im better... I also noticed a lot of other mommies to be felt the same around the same time... Dont stress about it! It might just be normal, but just to make sure, go to your doc. and ask..... Hope that helped! =D

it sounds like its just your hormones and you just need to take it easy. im now 38 weeks preg and i carried sickness until i was about 24 weeks gone but didnt start feeling sick until i was about 10 weeks gone. so i wouldnt worry too much your body will calm down when its ready. my sickness has now started again n i couldnt eat or drink when i had it first time round and my friend carried sickness all the way through her pregnancy just need to try to drink as much fluid as poss and try and eat what you can. i know how you feel, i panicked aswell when i carried by sickness past the first trimester x

Thank you so much everyone! That makes me feel so much better. I was afraid it meant something was wrong with the baby or myself. I'm glad to know that it's probably just something normal, and am happy to say that I can at least eat again despite the nausea. :) Good luck to you all. Hope you all have healthy pregnancies, deliveries and babies!!!

Evvery pregnancy is different. My first pregnancy I had absoultely no bad symptoms other than lack of sex drive. This pregnancy?? The nausea and fatigue have just gotten worse since I went from 1st trimester to 3 rd trimester. Hell I still have 4 more months to go!! Keep your chin up and just stay hydrated and keep up your prenatals, especially if you are having trouble eating. Some docs may recommend dramamine if you are nausiated too much. good luck!
