I am almost 8 weeks pregnant and ever since I started feeling nausea, I just have no emotions for anything! Is this normal? Nothing is funny to me. I do not want to be touched by my husband. I don't care to do anything. I just want to lay around and do nothing. I'm not depressed. I am very excited about having another child (this is my second!) But you would never know by how I act. Is anyone else going through this?? Or have felt like this before? When does it change? When do I get the "pregnancy glow??"
I think I was way exhausted and too queasy to feel much of anything myself in the early days. Talk to your doctor about it at your next appointment, just so he can note it and help keep an eye on you, but most likely you are just too busy making a baby (hormones and all). The pregnancy might also be a little surreal and you are trying to make it real - that takes emotional work.
It should go away as your body and mind gets used to everything. Be sure to pick up a couple of pregnancy books (like What to expect when you are expecting). They should help to answer some of your questions - including about the "glow".

I'm kinda like that right now, I think it's just because I feel so blah. It's hard to be very into life when you just feel tired and gross.
perfectly normal i think . you dont feel well, your bodys under some major work growing a happy healthy baby, the first trimester is always the worst.j gives you something to look forward to when that second one comes rolling around and your full of energy and smiles !
