hello and welcome to healthcare magic.
it would depend on the uncomfortable feeling you want to describe, if it is morning sickness you are talking about it will decrease within first few weeks and usually the sexual drive is decreased during pregnancy.
take care.

Ayurveda Specialist Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari's  Response
Dear melanie
Welcome to healthcaremagic
many women actually say they experience a heightened sense of sexual desire during pregnancy, which is likely caused by hormonal changes that cause the vulva (the area around the opening of the vagina) to enlarge and the breasts to be extra sensitive. Also, some women report the newfound freedom of not having to worry about contraception, combined with a new sense of intimacy with their partner makes their sex-life less inhibited.
Although this feeling will likely vary in intensity throughout the pregnancy. For example, women who experience morning sickness and general fatigue during their first trimester are not likely to feel particularly desirous. And once a woman reaches her third trimester she may be feeling uncomfortable due to weight gain, and therefore may feel discomfort or a lack of desire for sex during this time.
It is normal within you
