    I don't remember ANY of it. Not a second. Your DS won't either.
    Awwww you poor thing : ( It's funny how we can relate to our mums so much once we become mums ourselves. I should probably stop giving myself a hard time. I've got many years to make up for it. It's so hard : (

    I know how it feels - I'm 15 weeks along with hyperemesis and have had some really low days when I couldn't stop crying. It's so horrible when you can't do anything to stop the nausea and vomiting. I reacted badly to maxolon (panic attacks) so have been taking zofran 3xday as well as 25mg of b6 3xday and an antihistamine called restavit twice a day. The restavit made the biggest difference. I had been taking zofran twice a day but felt like it didn't do much especially considering the cost. I ended up being admitted to hospital for a few days on a drip which worked really well - and got a hospital prescription for zofran which made a HUGE difference to the cost. I really hope things improve for you soon.

    I suffer from depression as well but was off meds at the time. I was just incredibly depressed, to the point that I couldnt even do the dishes. I would just cry and had no motivation for anything, yet was angry at my husband for not doing anything, when in reality he was doing EVERYTHING. Poor hubby!

    I guess vomiting all day would make you pretty depressed too, though.

    Could you put a box of books next to the couch so ds can grab one when he wants a cuddle, for something to do together

    Also tickles and toddler giggles are a guaranteed mood lifter

    Dont feel guilty! He will be fine. My ds was 17 months when I fell pregnant with DS2 and I had severe HG and was hospitalised a few tomes and vomited every day multiple times until I was 34ish weeks pregnant. DS1 is perfectly well adjusted despite it all, and the tv was my best friend through that time!

    What I would do is DH would pack a lunchbox for DS, put all of DS' s toys in the lounge room for easy access and block it off and would make me a bed on the couch or a mattress on the floor. Ds would play around me and I only had to get up to pee, everythint else icluding nappies, wipes, even an esky with drinks for me etc were right in arms reach. Is this something you could do?

Is that perhaps an option to try? It doesn't alleviate the nausea for me but atleast it stops the vomiting.
    We are all here to talk
    20 weeks and still sick? : ( You poor thing. Has your midwife/OB told you why it happens? Why it lasts longer for some?

    34 weeks? Wow.. That sounds like a good idea. He has boxes of toys in his bedroom. I might get DH to bring them out next week and he can go through his toys and play.

    Also, do you have a toy library nearby? I go at least once a fortnight to borrow new toys, once a week if I'm organised, and I get 3 toys each time. Each new toy is good for a couple of hours quiet playing, so i put one out at a time then the next one when he starts getting bored of it. If you don't have a toy library you could swap toys with a friend, or buy some really cheap at an op shop or even kmart has pretty cheap toys.

    Morning sickness is miserable. I had it 24/7 until about 20 weeks (not HG, just constant nausea and vomiting) and then mildly until I gave birth at 41 weeks. I don't suffer from depression but I felt quite down at times as I was either struggling at work or lying in bed at home with my then 3yo in front of the tv. I managed it by taking dozile (or one of the other brands that includes that drug) half an hour before bed which decreased the nausea for the following 24 hours and then either maxalon or Zofran. Zofran is expensive but I managed to get it for $8 per tablet at the chemist warehouse, and I would only take 1 tablet on my work days. I would keep it next to my bed and take it before I got up. I found that would significantly reduce the nausea for a lot of the day. So maybe you could give yourself "Zofran days" as a bit of a break or if you need to go out? (sorry, this is all one paragraph, nothing is happening when I press the enter key?!?)
