Hugs, Sheila. Hopefully you find a good dosage and things settle down.

I am miserable. Been throwing up all day long. I can't stand up without throwing up. Can't eat anything. Can't keep water down. I threw up so hard I peed my pants.

Remind me why I wanted to do this again?

That's exactly how I'm feeling (mentally) and I'm way better off than you! So sorry! hug2.gif

Thank goodness the sick part is in the beginning. Cause if it was at the end of pregnancy with labor/birth (although I do love labor) so close I think we would vanish as a species. No one would do it twice. I feel the same way, remind why do I want to do this again?

Has me thinking maybe this babe is a girl. I was sick like this with my daughter, but not my son. It is more like full body nausea. Not just my stomach. My whole being is green.

Oh and the smell and thought of bacon is just wrong now. Wrong wrong wrong. Just typing it makes my stomach turn a little bit.

I give you props for doing this again. I am such a chicken, I was scared to do it again just because of the first few months of sickness and the painful labor thing. LOL 

I honestly don't want to have to go through this ever again after this. I'm just getting worn out. Those women who have very large families are impressive. Hubby's mom had 8... I think I'd die.

heyitskalista, you're a great role model! I am literally almost in tears just feeling nauseas all day, with very little vomiting. I feel so sick sometimes I wonder what I was getting myself into doing this again (third pregnancy, second baby (hopefully)).  I literally cannot fathom going through this 4 times (or more).  How do you manage at home with little ones?? I don't feel like a very good mom right now. My 15 month old spends quite a bit of time playing by herself while mommy lies on the floor/couch, trying my best to be interactive greensad.gif

I wouldn't worry about not being interactive enough. You got to take care of yourself and as long as you are taking care of your daughter's basic needs, all is well.

kristen b-- i hear what your saying...i told my mom i felt bad for my little guy as i seem to have no patience...and even more than that no energy to use distraction and such when he's having a hard time. i know this fatigue will pass...and i'll be glad when it does.

Ohmygoodness you said poutine.

I live in Tennessee and I've only had it once, when we were on our honeymoon in Vancouver/Victoria. My DH kept talking about how gross it was and I thought it sounded DELICIOUS and I was correct! I would pay a lot of money for some poutine in Tennessee right now.

Oh mama, I feel you! I seem to forget this part every time I want to get pregnant.

We are noly a screen free family but I've had my husband pull of the tv and some DVDs for the kids. Of course I feel so guilty but they are loving it! It's such a short time. Try not to worry about it. You've got enough on your plate without guilt too! (((Hugs)))

I can't keep anything down. Water, salad, fruit, junk food.... I eat it, and 20 min later it comes back up. If i don't eat, I feel sick because I am hungry, if I eat, I am sick because I ate. I lost 5 pounds this last week. Has anyone found something they can keep down/that helps with the nausea? I tried Saltines, Chips, and pretzels. Nothing. Just as bad. I feel like I should try to eat the healthiest foods possible, so that in case I do keep something down, it is nutrient rich. So far, this has not worked.

I have had a recent love affair with citrus. Normally, this is completely out of my diet, no sweets, not even fruit. But i am feeling uplifted by citrus lotion. And fresh guacamole with fresh lime juice with tortillas and special diaya brand soy free veggies cheese. Should i just eat it if it works? Like everday if i can? Normally, i only eat seasonally, but my body wants it so bad, or it is a fatty craving? I must need the fat? Avacados not too sweet like is it? I feel like it might pull me out of my rut. Its a cooling food though, and its already cold. Whats your votes? Just eat it if it makes me happy? I think i have had too many years of deprivation trying to be perfect and now i want these snacks. Like humus, with fresh lemon. I had miso taken out of my diet for thyroid reasons and after that i started feeling sick like nothing had taste. Should i just go with it, how bad could it be?

Is there a time morning sickness might be "offically no longer possible", so i can plant that time in my mind? Can it come and go as it pleases?

I remember having relief from the nausea around week 13, I pray that I will get relief with this pregnancy too.   I have been drinking 'canada dry' ginger ale and that seems to be refreshing right now with my nausea.  So far my nausea is similar to last time, and I don't actually vomit, but just have the feelings that lead up to it.  I do gag and almost gag at the thought of things.   I am getting more grossed out by the herbal tea and think that I need a break from it (I was drinking the Aviva Romm pregnancy tea recipe.)   Cheeseburgers and french fries at night make me feel satisfied at night... but I can't do that all the time.

I'd eat what your body wants.  You'll need the sugars, especially the natural ones from fruits.  And the good fats from avacados.  Go with what works!!

I tired eating citrus- it did not work.... It made it worse for me lol. I found i can keep soup down pretty well.

Before i had my citrus inspiration, i was filling up on dry cooked things, not wet. Like baked potatoes, not mashed, rice cakes , not a pot of rice. It had to be dry feeling. Now i want to eat that all the time and am adding toppings. I cooked beans or meat, then baked it to make it also dry. I guess i shouldnt complain, because i am getting my stenght back, but my mind tells me potatoes are only allowed 2x a week, due to sugar. Maybe i can make another exception, i know those doing worse would probably take it. Maybe its the irish in me. I am tired of trying to analyze whats best to eat and why. I
