It's not always that bad. Don't take everyone's story to heart, have your own experience. My personal experience, I was nauseous on and off for 2 weeks and felt like doing nothing. I only threw up 2 times. After those 2 weeks everything went back to normal fast and my energy and motivation returned.
I heard horror stores of it lasting the entire 1st trimester and possible the 2nd. It technically didn't even last a quarter of my first trimester. Your body of course needs to adjust to the change so yea its may feel cruddy for a couple weeks.
Another thing you'll notice is you probably won't start showing, if you do it will be in the last week of the first trimester. Don't push it just let it happen.
Things I found useful during my first trimester was Mineral Water, saltines and fruits. The thought of having something fresh and crunchy was appealing to me. The greaser foods I'd eat the worse I felt.
A cold compress is good to apply on the back of your neck when your feeling sick, When I felt sick I would get really hot and uncomfortable and then feel nauseous. Feeling something cold against my neck really help.
I found it hard to take my vitamins during those 2 weeks so I completely masked them in my food and it really helped. I would eat most of my food and when I had just a couple bits left I would take the vitamins and then finish eating.
Week 15 | How I feel And What's New
Same, No new symptoms this week but I have noticed my belly grow and I gained a pound.
WHATS HAPPENING WITH THE BABY?
The baby reaches 4 inches long, head to butt, and weighs in at about 2 1/2 ounces
There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but she is forming taste buds. If you have an ultrasound this week, you may be able to find out whether your baby's a boy or a girl!
You'll probably feel your baby move sometime between 16 and 22 weeks
Women have described the sensation as being like popcorn popping, a goldfish swimming around, butterflies, a tapping sensation, and bubbles
