Is this normal?

Yes. I have one other toddler and hyperemesis. It's hell. Advice: leave housework to someone else if you can and try and relax your usual standards. If toddlers nap then you do too. Enlist family and friends to babysit so you can rest. Concentrate on eating what you fancy (sod healthy) and drink lots. Its not easy, I'm still trying to follow my own advice! Good luck. It will get better. Xx

I am afraid I am starting to neglect my toddlers. I had hyperemesis with the other 2 and I really want 3 to feel complete. I do not think I can do this if I feel like this already. Can the nhs help in anyway other than cyclizine. I have no family near me and husband has to work as do I. I feel so silly now wanting more kids. . . I feel I have made a potential mistake. I am totally overwhelmed by fear and nausea.

I was in your position .... But 10 years ago - I just wanted to let you know that, although it reeeeeeaaalllly didn't feel like I would, I did survive and the children are healthy etc. what helped me was being signed off work but still sending toddler to childminder so I could rest/heave. Do you have childcare and sick pay? Xxxx

Yes there is childcare 3 half days a week is all I can afford. My work do not pay the first 3 days of sickness. I am just gagging and crying and am so dizzy. I will go to my GP if I become worse. Is it worth it? Please tell me u are happy with 3? I know there will be sibling rivalry. My 2 kids were playing so rough with each other today I had zero energy to stop them. I am extremely worried and frightened. This dark cloud has simply come over me this week. My husband tries to be understanding but he has no idea and he seems disappointed I am not happy to be pregnant and annoyed I am so depressed. Normally I am so happy. I need to be knocked out for a few months

We have a hyperemesis support thread if that's any help?

I'm unable to care for my 2dc properly- I'm 8 weeks pregnant with my third. So I feel your pain! I'm having to rely heavily on friends for help and support. It's tough. Hugs to you.
