Ok, I want to start off saying that I absolutely want to and try to do what is best for baby.
Here it goes, let the vent begin! So durring several conversations with coworkers about my pg, we have gotten on the subject of PNV. Since about week 7, I have been unable to take them due to m/s. When ever I tell them this, they basically start lecturing me about why I really should be taking them and giving every suggestion under the sun on how to take them without getting sick.
I've tried explaining that it really doesn't seem to matter when I take them or with how much food, they make me gag! It's like they think I don't WANT to take them. They are good for me and baby, of couse I want to take them, I just can't! I have tried the chewables (supposed to be a good alternative), and they are OK, I just know they aren't as good as true PNVs.
I think the thing that irritates me about it the most is that no one really seems to understand just how bad the ms can be for me sometimes. It's kinda like I said before, it doesn't matter if my stomach is empty or full, and doesn't matter what I've had to eat. I seem to stay pretty nauseous most of the time and then throw up when it gets really bad (although this past week has been much better).
I feel like it is more important for me to focus on eating and keeping food down rather than aggrevate my stomach further with a PNV.
I know that my coworkers have nothing but the best intetions in mind when giving me advice, but some times I just want to scream at them that they just don't under stand. On top of all that, I always end up feeling really guilty. Like becuase I can't take my PNV right now, if something bad were to happen it would be all my fault, even though I'm doing what I can. Ugh, it's just so frustrating!
Ok, vent over, thanks for "listening".
