Ok people this is not funny any more. I will be 24 weeks on sunday and I still feel sick every day I have days when I cant get out of bed thats how bad it is. I still throw up but now I do it all the time not jus on empty stomak like before so even the things that worked before dont any more. (I used to eat a plate of food over the period of 2 hours). I have tried so many things nothing is working for me. The reason I am given is because I had my gall blader removed few years ago and now all the acid is making me sick. I dont know how I am going to last another 16 weeks or so. Doctors tell me not to worry as I have few extra killos but that does not mean I am not hungry or in pain and that I should just put up with it. I hardly go anywhere because even if my morning sickens is not that bad my back is killing me. I hate been like this and feeling like this we have waited for this baby for almost 5 years and I am not enjoying it at all. I am looking for any help here even few words about your time been pregnant.

Oh I really sympathise with you! I was exactly the same with both of my pregnancies, but the first was worse as I had to drive 45km to and from work everyday. With my first pregnancy I actually lost 15kg from when I found out I was pregnant until I had my baby boy! I was sooo sick - I have no idea how I worked until 4 weeks before I had him! Nothing worked for me either....although chewing Rennie tabs (a natural mint indigestion tablet) helped a little sometimes. I am so sorry you are so sick...and I know it doesn't mean much right now, but it will all be worth it in the end!

Mint helped a bit at the start but now it makes it worse. With my first son I was also very sick and worked till I was 5 months I remember going to this new house (I was a carer for the disabled) and the manager was explaining things (he was a man) and I had to run to the toilet every 2 min and felt so bad for it after that I only worked in 1 house where we knew each other well. Oh and I just started having heart burn every day like I dont have enough things as it is.

OH dear, the dreaded heartburn! I had that severely with both my boys too....from about 5 months until I had them! Nothing helped at all except for milk occasionally. I really hope things settle for you soon...but if they don't know that I am sympathising with you! xxoo

Hello! I am so sorry you are going through this. During my first pregnancy, I was sick the whole nine months. I even threw up my last meal before my son was born. I know exactly what you are going through and it is extremely hard. You feel like it is such an effort to do everyday things. I just wanted to sleep all the time because that was the only time I felt alright. Keep your head up. I know it seems like your pregnancy will never end but when it does everything will be worth it. Try to enjoy the little things like feeling the baby move.

When I was pregnant with my first child I was sick right up until the day I delivered. It's almost over!
