I'm 16 weeks 2 days pregnant and things have only gotten worse from my first trimester. My first was a breeze. A little nauseas and tired, but that's about it. But this second trimester, i've had horrible throbbing headaches daily, i'm so tired all the time that it's so hard for me to keep working a full time job. My mind has such a hard time focusing on anything, and at least one day a week i just feel SO sick. Like i have the flu. I'll even get a low grade fever (about 99.5). And then the next day that goes away and i just have the headache,lack of energy, and inability to focus. I could sleep all day long. I'm just struggling with figuring out what to do about work. I want to push through it because i don't want to be the guy who quits when i'm only this far along, but it is so hard for me to do. I am so stressed and emotional about it. Any advice?View Thread
