I am Carissa, and I'm around my 9th week now. I've been experiencing a lot of nausea and fatigue and if I get up too quickly I get really light headed and faint. I experience some cramping if I get too hungry during the day, I was wondering if that's normal? Also I haven't been able to go to a doctor yet because of complications with my fiance and transportation. I've been really depressed lately and am feeling very alone, my family is in NC and I'm in MN so it's a very long way away, I don't really have many friends here and don't talk to people much. I live in a very small town and am feeling more moody than usual. I had a fight with my fiance last night and he said I'm "always angry" I don't try to be, I'm just frustrated with everything as it is right now, it doesn't help that this is my first pregnancy and I feel so inexperienced and overwhelmed because I don't really have anyone to help me through this time in my life. Does anyone have any advice or support? It would do wonders for me.
P.S. I know I have a few different questions in here, so I apologize if it's a lot to have to read.View Thread
