Morning Sickness is the WORST

by Amanda on August 4, 2008

I don’t have a helpful or interesting topic today. I am still battling All Day Nausea. I have spent the entire weekend in bed or on the couch and I have missed two parties. In fact I haven’t left my house in over a week. Yesterday, my husband and I walked to our mailbox and I immediately threw up when we got back to the house.

Last Thursday night I broke down crying. Being sick is lonely. You don’t get to go out and see anyone. I don’t what the heck I want to eat most of the time. In fact, I don’t want to eat at all, but I know I have to for the baby and so I don’t have to get an IV. I hate that I can’t do anything around the house to help and I feel like I just boss my husband around all day. (I am sure most women would love that.) But we knew before starting the whole process of a second one, that would mean that Daniel has to do everything. He is doing a fantastic job feeding Ace and taking care of her. I try to watch Ace from the couch in the afternoons so he can at least get some work done.

So I just wanted to whine again here on The Mom Crowd. Morning sickness is really horrible. I keep thinking, “What if I can’t do this a third time and we only have 2 kids?” People say I can make it through it again, but I hate this. If my morning sickness lasts 20 weeks again like it did last time. I don’t know if I will want to try for number 3.

What I do know is that tomorrow I am 8 weeks along. In two weeks I will be able to hear my baby’s heartbeat and that will make it all worth while. But I still have two weeks of vomiting and hating food to go.

P.S. As I wrote this up I smelled the dry cat food and totally threw up my lime sherbert. Oh, I did get some meds. The Zofran works really well, but my insurance would only give me 12 pills every thirty days. I may have to call back my doc’s office to push it through insurance. When I called last week they gave me Phinagrin(sp?). I took it Saturday morning and it knocked me off my butt and I slept all day.

Thanks for letting me whine again.

    Aw, Amanda, I’m so sorry you feel so badly. If I lived in your town I’d totally bring the kids over to play with Ace. I don’t have any new encouragement other than hang in there!!

    I battled All Day Nausea w/my 1st child. I threw up so much I thought my stomach acids were going to burn a hole through the plumbing pipes. Meds were of no help and a doctor (military) even told me to just “suck it up.” I’ll pray that you won’t have to endure morning sickness torture beyond your 1st trimester.

    I don’t live too far from you so if you want, Daniel can drop Ace over at my house several times a week during the afternoons so she can play w/my kids and you can have uninterrupted rest.

    You’ve got my sympathy. Please know that this period will pass. I’m very confident that you can make it through.

    @dawn – our kids would totally play together. Even just hearing “hang in there” helps.
    @brittany – Thanks for the encouragement. Sorry I haven’t been by your awesome site lately. I have been MIA all over the web.
    @Heidi – dude, if someone told me to suck it up I would almost hit them. I may certainly take you up on your offer next week. After today, I got on the phone and got most of the rest of this week covered. I thought I could handle it today, but its hard when you can’t keep your food down and Ace just wants to climb all over you on the couch.
    @Evelyn Lim – Thanks for your sympathy! i have to keep remembering that it will pass. the days just seem so long.

    Oh, honey. It will get better. You know it will! It may not be comforting to you right now, but in a couple of weeks you’ll feel MUCH better and then you’ll be able to tell these HILARIOUS all-day-sickness stories!

    Amanda, I am so sorry to hear that your morning sickness is kicking your butt! And don’t worry, we here at TMC like to think of it as “venting your frustrations to someone other than poor Daniel,” not “whining.” :-)
    Love you and hope this passes soon!

    I’m praying so much for you Amanda. If you need me to get Ace again just let me know. I don’t mind at all. I hope she was okay when she left my house the other day! She was really great for us. :) :)

    Wow girl! I’ve been out of the loop for awhile so I didn’t realize you are pregnant! Congratulations!! I’m sorry you are feeling so sick though… my heart goes out to ya. I am also keeping you in my prayers!

    Amanda – yeah, I wanted to hit him but if I did there could have been some serious repercussions involved….particularly w/my hubby and his career in the military. Vomiting on the doctor rather than hitting him would have been sweeter justice though.

    Let me know if I can help watch Ace. Being pregnant w/a child who can’t entertain themself or do a lot of things on their own just really sucks!
