@Sunshine09:  Confide in a coworker to keep your secret and spot you during your many restroom breaks.

I am not pregnant yet, but this is seriously my worst fear.  I am a teacher, and I don’t know what I would do if I suddenly have to leave my class unattended to go to the bathroom!

Snacks! I literally had little baggies of carb-y snacks like goldfish crackers stuffed in every drawer. Snacking helped keep it down big time.

@onyx81:  I’m a teacher and this is getting really hard for me. I’ve been sipping ginger tea and taking ginger-gravol before class and it helps keep the nausea down, but I may need to talk to the VP soon and let her know, because I just can’t run out of class and leave my kids unsupervised.

I’m pretty strict about no snacking during class (except  if we have treats for Valentine’s Day or something) so I’d take a lot of flak from my students if I started munching.

I had to tell my boss early on because everyone thought I had swine flu and wanted to send me home.

I also had to tell people early, because I got busted barfing so many times people knew anyway and were asking and I was just tired of not being up front about it! Hang in there!

@Sunshine09:  I ended up telling my boss at about 8 weeks because it got so bad I had to come into work late most days :/

I am still a pre-service teacher but from next year onwards I will be a permanent teacher… so this is a worry for me also!


Fiance and I will be getting married 2014 so after a few years we will be TTC.  I have no idea how I will cope if I am teaching and about to chuck my guts!  AHHH!

Today is my first day at the office with MS – it is no fun! I’ve been sneaking saltines out of my desk all day, people are microwaving super offensive-smelling foods, and it seems like everybody layered on the cologne/perfume today. ughhhhh

I just had to tell people really early, since people saw me throwing up on the sidewalk outside of the building before work almost every day. Sometimes there’s just no hiding it, and that’s ok. Snacking and all the other usual remedies didn’t help me at all.

Working through morning sickness is so hard. I hope it passes quickly!

I work remotely so I don’t have to worry about hiding it from coworkers.. However, I was pretty bad off for a while and I’m learning how to cope so its not so bad( im currently 9w2d).First off, my doc put me on a special kind of prenatal which has worked great. It’s called citranatal b calm.. It has extra b 6 in it which is known to help MS. Secondly, you can buy these things from a maternity store ( or order online ) called “Preggie Pops”.. They are wonderful. Ginger Ale and Ginger Snap cookies are also great. ALWAYS keep a full stomach! I have learned that carbs are your best friend!! I hope these suggestions help! As I said I have been battling ” all day sickness” and its no joke 😉 Good luck!
