Yes, I never understood the name “morning sickness”. “All day sickness” is more like it. I can’t say I hated being pregnant but I hated feeling sick and hormomal and an out-of-wack sense of taste and smell.

It does get better some time during the 2nd semester for most women.

I didn’t feel better until 20ish weeks and I still dont love it. I think it makes you a great mom because you are willing to put up with feeling absolutely terrible to have that sweet baby. You don’t have to love it. Don’t feel bad.

@RahlyRah:  Hang in there!  I’m 22 weeks and I can relate to where you are coming from.  I had horrible morning sickness from about 10 weeks-20 weeks, and I was miserable.  I told my Darling Husband we were never having more kids, I couldn’t do it, etc.  The fact that I was planning a wedding/getting married at 12 weeks, and in school trying to get into a nursing program didn’t help me feel any better.  The past 2-3 weeks have been a nice change though.  I’m not as sick, and have been able to feel the baby move.  We’ve had our anatomy scan and have started buying cute baby stuff.  And I’m no longer dead set against having more kids lol.  It really does feel like its never going to get better when you’re in the worst of the sickness but it does eventually. 

I hope you feel better soon!

@RahlyRah:  Hang in there!! I was miserably sick for the entire time with both of my kiddos – my kidneys shutdown and I swoll up like I was in Willy Wonka.  My hair did not get lush, my skin did not glow – I looked and felt like death.

I hated being pg – love being a mom and my kids are 15 and 18.

Do not feel bad – you are genuinely not feeling well and this whole Madonna image of pregnant woman is NOT always true ๐Ÿ™‚

Hang in there, lady! I know it may feel like for-ev-er, but the weeks will pass and at the end you’ll have your baby in your arm.  Pregnancy can be very difficult for lots of women….and having a rough time and hating it doesn’t make you a bad mom.  It’s sort of like weight loss, I may hate going to the gym but I love the results and they’re worth every minute of torture! ๐Ÿ™‚

@RahlyRah:  There’s a light at the end of the first trimester tunnel! I feel tons better now that I’m at 16 weeks. Hang in there… Just when you think you are NEVER going to feel better a lot of the awful stuff dissipates ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been really fortunate in that I’ve felt good for most of my pregnancy so far but I still don’t love being pregnant. I haven’t been sleeping that well since the end of my first trimester. I don’t love all the attention, or people wanting to talk about the baby all the time. And man, do I want a drink. It’s definitely not my favorite thing, but I hear that adorable baby you get at the end makes it all worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you feel better soon!

I completely understand and have been there! I’m at 19 weeks now, and although I still have my occasional naseau/puke moments, they’re few and far between. But there was a solid 2-3 months where it just controlled my life – I often ended up in a ball crying because I thought I’d never feel normal again, and I couldn’t stand one more second of it. But it did get better! I still don’t love being pregnant – and I so hate the people who feel the need to tell you how amazing pregnancy is and to enjoy this time while you’re in the midst of morning sickness and kind of just want to punch them for implying you should be enjoying the way you’re feeling. 

Have you talked to your doctor about how you’ve been feeling? Mine prescribed Zofran – it wasn’t magic and I still had some food aversion issues, but it stopped the naseau from just running my life and keeping me feeling sick all day.

I suspect that many of the women who enjoy being pregnant (excluding those who had difficulty conceiving in the first place) are the ones who didn’t have to experience the nasty, uncomfortable side effects of pregnancy.  I doubt a woman who spends months on end being nauseated is going to love the condition, versus a woman who gets to experience the motherly glow on top of feeling relatively normal.

I know exactly how you feel but please don’t think you’re a bad mom because pregnancy so far hasn’t been kind to you. I wish every woman had a pregnancy full of every positive symptom and none of the bad.

I’ve been pregnant twice. Once with my son and another which I lost at 11 weeks. With both pregnancies I had Gawd awful nausea/vomiting and often thought “What the hell did I get myself into?” It felt like someone had taken over my body and I can’t do anything about it, thankfully by my second trimester I felt better.

Just know it does get better, hang in there mama!!!
