    I always get bad sickness, this is my 4th pregnancy, trouble is this time I have three children to deal with and a husband workman shift meaning he doesn't get in until 8, so it's not like he can take over food.

    Argh, I'm not even being sick it's just all day nausea and it's horrid.

    I cry when I think how long this is likely to last for and I really want to hide it from everyone but can't see how. My sickness usually starts to go about 16 weeks! 10 more weeks? Argh.

    My first pregnancy I was 3 stone lighter full term than pre conception.

    Oh I know exactly how you feel!! I had hg with my other 3 pregnancies and so started medication before it got to that point this time, but the nausea is still awful and I have been vomiting, it's just not as bad. The thought of another 2 months of this is daunting. My DH is working away right now but does come home a couple of nights a week to see us. Thankfully my kids are older and are at school during the day to leave me to wallow and feel sorry for myself in peace lol. I must admit that none of us are getting the 'food pyramid' daily nutrition, but we are getting by! Last night it was grilled cheese sandwiches.... Tonight it might be cheerios... I just keep trying to get through each day and I figure as long as we are all alive at the end of it, that is good enough for now. Definitely counting the day's though. This too shall pass! :hugs:

    Lol, yes the past two days I've managed two pieces of toast that was ok, and orange juice, today has been better, which is then a worry as I'm bleeding again argh, but I have to keep reminding my self that every pregnancy I have bled in expect for the one i lost, and I've had no pain so fingers crossed.

    I had HG with my first and second, the twins I had nausea and this one they far is just nausea so I don't think they can medicate for that. Wait and see I suppose.

    This morning my eldest decided he wants plain bread ( not unusual for him ) and brought some for his brothers and then dolly mixture lol, I really couldn't nave cared less. My children always get their 5 a day so they can miss of for awhile lol.

    I see you have little ones. It is way harder when they are that age. My last pregnancy my 2 were 3 and 4 and it was tough. My oldest is mentally handicapped but my daughter is old enough to help with him and he is also finally toilet trained! Oh my if I had to be changing nappies right now, it would for sure send me over the edge lol. That's interesting that you didn't get hg with your twins. I would have expected it to be worse. Fx you don't get it this time either!

    I know and I have two in nappies argh lol. Yes, they say a sign of twins is HG but nope, easiest 1st trimester! This one, argh, between the sickness and the bleeding it's turning me crazy, I've seen the heartbeat, but then start bleeding again. Can't wait to get past the first 14 weeks or so!

    I'm so sick of the sickness too. I can't even open my eyes half the time without my whole world spinning. I'm lucky in that DH can work from home so he watches over DS. I could not do it on my own at all.

    I have to keep repeating "this too shall pass". I'm trying not to think of how much longer this could last. With DS I was lucky in that the worst was done by 7ish weeks and I felt normal by 12 weeks. This time is the worst sickness I've had of all 5 of my pregnancies so I don't know how long it will last.
