Hi everyone, I'm not sure where else to turn, and I just need to talk with others going through this, too. I'm about 8 1/2 weeks along with my second child, and I'm experiencing terrible...terrible nausea this time around. I remember some mild nausea with my son, but this is out of control. There were a few weeks of annoying, constant nausea and exhaustion, but for the most part I was functional. The last week, I have leaned on my husband 100%. He's so supportive, but I feel so lazy, useless, and honestly pretty depressed. I'm only interested in being in bed - I have no interest to read, or even watch TV at this point anymore - nothing sounds fun, nothing seems worth looking forward to. My nausea is all. the. time. and I'm desperate to have relief. I never vomited with my son, but I already have today twice. It's hard to have interest in eating, let alone actually eat, and even water seems disgusting to me.
I'm sorry for anyone else going through this, but any tips or just pep talks? I know the whole "it will likely resolve itself by the end of the first trimester", but this is so much worse than my first pregnancy that I'm having pretty high anxiety that I'll be one of the unlucky ones who has it the whole pregnancy. I'm a teacher and starting school next week, I have a toddler.....I CANNOT do this for months and months. I don't think I have the HG condition - but where's the line between "normal" and "you should probably talk to your midwife"? This is absolutely affecting my life and preventing me from being functional, especially this past week.
Also, when did anyone else's morning sickness/all day feel awfulness peak? I've read 9 weeks a few places, and I'm in the 9th week; that's the only glimmer of hope I have found, that maybe I'm in the worst of it now.
