12w5d and I don't know how much longer I can keep going..

It got pretty good for a while, but this last week it's come back and is sooo much worse. I think because it's now being coupled with incessant hunger.. And of course, NOTHING makes me feel better.. I can be sooo full that I feel sick, but then an hour later my brain tries to tell me i'm hungry again, when clearly i'm not and i'm all nauseous and confused and feeling horrible again.

I think the worst part for me is that because it's been so constant, I don't really even feel like I've had a chance to be happy about FINALLY being pregnant after so long. Before MS hit I was still in shock, and since then, im just miserable. I hate feeling this way. I want to be happy, i want to smile when i think of my child, but I can't. I just feel so horrible all the time, and that in turn makes me feel sooo horrible as a mum and as a person..

Anybody else going through this?

Hi Babyinabackpack,  if it's any consolation I'm still suffering Ms as well, the constant waves of nausea are becoming very tiresome.  The only thing that works for me is to eat salty things like chips and popcorn or a bowl of pasta with just cheese on top.

I'm really hoping it subsides soon especially as my Ob has just informed me that because I'm carrying twins I will always measure 4-6 weeks ahead (fundal height) and the tiredness of the final part of pregnancy will hit at about 26 weeks!!

Hope your feeling better soon.

Hi OP, have you spoken to your GP/ OB about this?

If its persistent and interfering with your daily life there is medication that you can take that is safe. I suffered from HG in my previous pregnancies and I know how horrible and all consuming it is to be sick, especially when the meds don't work and you don't know when it will end. For me it was from 5 weeks to around 19 or so, and then I finally stopped vomiting and felt that I could be happy about being pregnant and enjoy my baby.

I hope it eases for you soon.

I don't think I'm suffering as badly as you - but had a whole week of feeling normal and thought it was over, then BAMM vomiting every few days again.
Also that whole starving hungry - eat masses - feel totally bloated and nauseous but STILL HUNGRY!  It's weird.

And yes that almost depressed feeling when you're tired and have been vomiting and you know you should be happy but you're not.

Babyinabackpack I am going through the same thing. So sorry for you.
I have been sick since 5weeks and am now just over 13. I have been unable to work for the last 5week and am literally laying down all day all night. The nausea is so overwhelming and the vomiting...... Just awful.
My Ob wanted me to go on a drip at 9weeks and I put it off but ended up going to the hospital last week and I was very dehydrated my veins had collapsed. It made me feel better for 24hours and was able to have a good night sleep after it.
Are you vomiting a lot? If so ring your gp/Ob/mw and access whether this is a good option for you.
I know how you feel.... I'm so sorry you are feeling down.how nice would it be if someone said ok week 13 day 6 you will be all good.It just feels like it will never end, and there is nothing you can do.
Fingers crossed for you. And if you find any answers pls let me know

Yes similar here and it's been so tough. I am 13.5 weeks and thought I was better about a week ago and now I'm back to it again. The vomiting has stopped but the nausea is still there. I have somehow kept my normal life going, working and looking after the kids but it's dam tough so I know how you feel. I expect it to full subside around 16 weeks. Hang in there. I just sent DH to buy ginger ale as I read it helps.

So 14 weeks today and starting to feel a semblance of normality again.. I got some Vitamin B6 from the doctor which I think really helped.

I hope you are all feeling better soon aswell!!
And I truly truly hope that there are no more relapses!!

All I want to do is eat all the time but I've found that I feel much better when I eat very little but regularly. Only trouble with that is trying to limit what I eat which is hard when I just want to stuff my face with cr*p.  It's a vicious cycle.  I am sick of the nausea too.
