Morning sickness is kicking my ass!

God I'm not even 8 weeks yet and I've spent all day barely being able to move. I really don't feel like I can handle it.
Last time I was ill from 8 weeks till 23 weeks and I just can't cope with that again. Dp is being so helpful but I can barely play with my little girl. Not sure what the point of this post is really I'm just feeling very overwhelmed.

Hey Roobix. Sorry to hear you're suffering. Did you ever visit a gp last time? There are medications that can help if you're vomiting a lot. Constant nausea and sickness is very overwhelming. It really does suck. Join the hyperemesis support thread if you want some sympathy from fellow vomiters!

In the meantime flowers. I've told dh this baby will be an only child because I can't imagine doing this again with a child, so i think all you second timers are incredibly brave!

I'm not actually vomiting. It's diarrhoea tmi mainly and nuasua with the odd chills.
No I didn't see a doctor last time. I don't think I could actually face going to the surgery.

Right, even with diarrhoea I think you need to have a nice chat with a gp. Diarrhoea puts you at risk of dehydration, and you need to have a urine test. Drs can prescribe for nausea if its stopping you from eating.

If you can't go into your gp practice, can you ask for a phone consultation? They may ask for you to go in anyway, but it would be best to get some professional advice.
