Three weeks of extreme naseau. lots of vominting. trying to hold down some food. etc. my husband is trying his best to help but told me yesterday he is getting tired of hearing me complain. I’ve been working from home but this is the last week I’ll be able to do that. not sure how to cope. dreading going to the office and feeling like this. I’m at 9 weeks. no midwife yet – I’m on all the waiting lists. we’ve been holding off telling most people until 12 weeks and I wanted to wait until an ultrasound showed us a heartbeat (maybe it will seem more real then?) others at work who don’t know yet are definitely wondering what is wrong with me and commenting that I seem very low energy. yeah, tell me about it. anyway, just a small rant/vent from me, thanks for listening.

@envirobride: If I were you, I’d puke all over my husband’s favorite tie he put out for work tomorrow if he said he was sick of hearing me complain.
I have been fortunate enough not to have morning sickness, but I hear it is like having a 24/7 hangover. Awful. Perhaps he would relate more to that? Men have a hard time understanding sometimes.
Keep holding on. I hear it gets better although its hard to believe that when you’re hanging over the toilet bowl. If you want to lie but not really lie if your co-workers ask, just tell them you are having tests run to determine what’s wrong. They probably suspect you’re pregnant anyway, but you don’t have to (and shouldn’t) say anything until 12 weeks, like you want.
Good luck, and I hope you feel better soon 🙁

@envirobride: awww. hopefully you will feel better soon. I completely understand not telling people so soon. Hubby probably does not understand. Apparently a lot of men dont understand the morning sickness. It auto-fills in when you begin to type it on google! Lots of well wishes for you and your baby!!! When other people find out and start asking you how you are and sharing horror stories- maybe it will help your husband a little more. If you dont want to hold off, have him do some reading on morning sickness.

@envirobride: You should try to get a prescription for Zofran, even if its from your primary care physician. It was a lifesaver for me. I don’t think I could have made it through my first trimester without it!

@envirobride: omg I’d puke in your husbands shoes if he told me that! I’m a huge wimp and have been complaining non stop and my husband doesn’t dare tell me he is tired of me complaining. He told me early on he thought I was milking it because I couldn’t possibly be feeling so bad so early on. I about bit his head off – guess he learned his lesson!
Hope you start feeling better soon. Maybe you could get in to see an ObGyn for a Rx for Zofran to help? And just see them until you get in to see a midwife?

@envirobride: Good for you for not KILLING HIM. Because I would have if my DH had said ANYTHING that stupid while I was hurling everything I put in my mouth.
If it helps, my MS started to go away in week 11, and was 100% GONE by week 13 (though in week 9, it feels like forever and it’s never going to end)

Thanks everyone. SO nice to have commiseration from those who know.
DH is doing his best but yah, I did tell him I was mighty tired of feeling like this and until I felt better, he was going to hear me complain lol.
I have a perscription for diclectin and am taking the max allowed. It definitely helps but only to the point where I can semi-function, it doesn’t make it go away.
@brandnewbride, your story gives me so much hope, I hope it is the same for me.
