hey everybody, I'm Kat and I'm new here. Always been kind of a lurker around webmd but I feel like its time to start participating I'm 23 and married to the love of my life <3 According to my webmd pregnancy calendar I will be exactly 7 weeks this Sunday. This is my first pregnancy and I'm super excited but also really scared because this is all really new to me! Ofc with everything in my life, my situation is 'special' or as I call it..complicated. My momma, my grandmother, and basically all of my close family are gone as of the last 5 years or so (with the exception of my aunt & uncle that live about 45 mins away). Not sure if any of that is really relevant or not, but anyways, that's obviously a big factor in my life and now especially.... So far, I am super exhausted almost all the time..which I guess is okay since I'm not working at the moment. But the main thing I'm struggling with is my nausea 24/7. I haven't thrown up once, but when I try to eat anything I can just feel it...so I stop. I know this is bad and it also doesn't help that I am hypo-glycemic. I have been trying different teas, taking my prenatals in the evening instead of morning, all like my mother-in-law has been suggesting. Most of it helps a little, but I'm not sure its helping enough. I feel like crap because I"m not getting enough nutrition, I feel spacey during the day, so of course I don't feel like going out for a walk or doing any exercise would be good until I can get my eating thing fixed, though I want to get started on it. Any advice, info, help, support, whatever is totally welcomed Sorry if I bored you with this big paragraph of junk
