I have just found out am pregnant and I already have a DS. I am very early but have been suffering from severe nausea and I am not keeping anything down but dry toast. I am crying all the time and I am now thinking have I made a mistake trying for another child as I have DS who is 3yr and over the last week spent about 8 hrs in total out of bed. I am feeling useless and like a terrible parent and I dont think I can do it. I think if I maybe wasnt suffering with the nausea/sickness I would be better?
Awww sympathies Jayne It will get better. I'm a little over 14wks with an 18mo and I'm beginning to feel a lot better, although still pretty weepy at times. I spent wks 5-11 feeling permanently nauseated, exhausted, and with skull-crushing headaches. I'm still getting it a bit but it's not all the time. I've felt like an awful parent as I've just been unable to move off the sofa much and her screech (ie the noise she makes ALL THE TIME to show happiness, anger etc) has made me want to cry and my head implode. I think it's normal to be a bit nervous if you've made the right decision. I know we have, but it doesn't stop me doubting myself sometimes! Just hang on in there
