Ouch, I feel your pain there. I do.I had 24/7 "morning" sickness with both of my kids. Hope you're feeling better soon.
Is it true that girls are more difficult pregnancies than boys? My wife didn't ever "get sick" with either of my boys though she felt pretty miserable with both of them. What is your experience?
C.H.Thanks for asking. With my 3 sons, I was nauseated, but could walk around and live relatively normal although much slower life.With the girls, I spent much time on my knees in the bathroom paying homage to the great white porcelain god.This one is feeling boyish, darn it. I want a little more pink in my life.
Hope you are feeling better soon. That does not sound enjoyable, at all.
sorry about the 'morning' sickness. and your kids are right about the dinnosour thing.how'd you get prego without marathon training
Mom,If it is any consolation, I felt REALLY terrible with #1, a girl and just sort of terrible with the next 4 (all boys, including the stillbirth). SO, with this last pregnancy, I was certain it was a boy, because I didn't feel too bad--surprise--it was a girl!Now, you have had two bad experiences being pregnant with a girl, but I wouldn't lose complete hope that it isn't a girl. Will you find out beforehand or at birth?Love, Suzanne
We always find out ahead of time if we can. I'm too nosy not to peek.
My friend with 6 kids always has a horrible time throughout the entire pregnancy, not just the first trimester. Seems like the boy I knew her pregnant with was worse than the latest (a girl). Never had a boy, myself. You might ask her. She's at www.dontpokethebaby.blogspot.com
My first, a boy, I was sick continuously throughout the 9 months. #2, a boy, about the first 6 months. The third,a girl, I was just plain "sick" throughout the nine months. #4, another girl, only about the first 4, but I had other blood pressure issues to deal with. This last one, #5, another boy, at the age of 42 was my best and least troublesome pregnancy. The nausea lasted only the first 3 months, and then it was pretty much smooth sailing the rest of the way. Not even problems with blood pressure, as i had had with the first 4. So for me I never made a connection with my health and the baby's gender... however, if you can drag yourself up, drinking water (my midwife friend and mother of 10 suggests lemon water, but I don't like lemon...)and walking can help the nausea. For me it worked, when I could drag mysef up... hang in there. I'll say a prayer...
Interesting theory. I wasn't very sick at all when I was pregnant with my son. I only got sick about 5 times in the first trimester, when I got up for an early shift at work and I rushed to get there.I got sick once in month 6 from a certain kind of iron pill, and once a few days before I went into labor.Try ginger tea. Ginger is supposed to combat nausea.
What helped my nausea was Greek Yogurt and Keifer. I ate lots of protein, whether I felt like it or not, and my nausea was manageable. Still, it is much better when that part if over, isn't it?
