Just here for a moan really. 12 weeks pregnant with dc2. Had horrific morning sickness both times. Struggle to eat and some smells set me off.
Ive had 2 weeks holiday off work (not because of pregnancy) and Ive been loads better. Sickness minimal, tiredness easier to cope with.
Today Im up early to go back to work. Barely slept last night and feel wretched this morning. I could cry. I love my job but it would appear im having some kind of psychological morning sickness due to it.

I hate pregnancy.

I am the same!! Although I think mine may be the train journey?

At home I seem to be able to eat later and not feel sick, here I feel sick and headachey all the time.

I enjoy my job, but I don't enjoy the journey.

I keep telling myself I will go gym but every time I bring my stuff to work I feel sick!!

Hey I have hyperemis sickness & it has finally settled down at 22 weeks. I found I was worse at work because I was so stressed about being sick at work, having to look presentable while being so ill plus the stress of not telling anyone what was really wrong until after 12 weeks (it started at 5 for me). I'd see your Dr as they can give you medication which can help or sign you off for a week or 2 if needed

I'm on DC2 and have had a horrible pregnancy this time. Being signed off for 4 weeks did me the world of good, and I wished I'd gone and got help sooner. It can't count against you if it's pregnancy related.

I'm always much better symptom wise at the weekend, I think the extra rest and not needing to rush to get ready makes all the difference. Maybe the 1 hour car commute doesn't help as well. If you find it possible, try waking up an hour earlier and get ready slowly and at your leisure. Does not rushing help at all? Personally this was not an option for me because the pregnancy exhaustion was my worst symptom and that extra hour in bed was worth the morning sickness payback sad
