Worried!

I'm in to my 8th week and I am exhausted, however really struggling to get a decent nights sleep, up at 4am this morning. I'm feeling very dizzy and have really bad headaches has anyone else felt like this? I've been really worried as I only found out a few days ago that I was pregnant, but it has made sense of how I've been feeling for the past few weeks. I did a test a couple about 4 weeks back which was negative, so as its the festive season I've had a few work nights out without realising I was pregnant so worried I've caused problems

Just make sure you get plenty of rest, I know with my 2 I had some nights out before I realised and they are fit and healthy.

Since I found out I was pregnant I'm now 14 weeks I have never had a good nights sleep, nausea in early pregnancy and now nasal congestion and sore hips! Apparently a lot of pregnant women have trouble sleeping. Also I sleep on my left side now instead of my back which has taken some getting used to. I had been out clubbing two weeks prior to finding out and was very worried if I had harmed the pregnancy but the mid wife had assured me everything is fine. Congratulations

Thank you for your responses very reassuring, I have brought a new pillow today which is massively comfy so hopefully this will help.

Merry Christmas

I sleep really badly normally which was worse during early pregnancy, I also suffered with dizziness and terrible headaches but the midwife said its likely to be the hormone changes. Try not to worry but get in to see a midwife a little early if you want to talk and get some reassurance.
