I think I must have had a bug too, especially as it felt so different to my first pregnancy. And it was just after Christmas, so I’d been over-indulging and not really looking after myself. I was pretty stressed about it all too, which didn’t help. We were due to get married on 23rd September but we had to postpone, as I’m due on the 3rd, so there’s no way the wedding could go ahead. I think I was just really run-down, shocked, and of course there are loads of hormones flying around your body at the start.
Then at about 14 weeks I woke up one day and felt fine. My body didn’t feel jumbled up anymore. I guess the hormones had settled down and my body just got used to being pregnant. I remember a friend telling me that at 6 weeks your baby is about the size of a lentil. It’s crazy that something so small can make you feel so bad. Right now, he’s about the size of a melon and I feel totally fine. It just makes no sense!
