Re: Just a little vent....
Sorry mama, that was me for the first 16 weeks. I threw up an average of 3 times a day but the nausea was never ending.
Here are some tricks: take 1/2 a unisom with vit. B6 everynight, my midwife recommended this to me and it really really helped. Before that I couldn't keep anything down. Get as much sleep as you can, keep what ever food you can tolerate on hand at all times. Last, those motion sickness bands helped me get through work.
As far as the people thinking you are sick...well you are and it is flu season so let them think you are sick. If it means people will come help you then I say do it. You will need the help, you will only get MORE tired. Let them watch your kids, let them bring you food so you don't have to cook while trying not to barf. I know it sucks that you feel like you are "lying" but if your friend was in the same position wouldn't you understand?
Hugs to you mama, hang in there.
