Since 7-8 weeks into my pregnancy, I have suffered morning sickness, badly. Been put on tablets,lost 2 stone, I'm 12 weeks now, obviously I'm hormonal... my partners mum, who I happen to live with, made a nasty comment towards me.

"I hope to god you don't have anymore kids after this"
This is my first.

"All you've done is moan you feel sick"

I feel very upset and distraught by this.

My partner was present. And didn't say a word to her, he just nodded his head.

I feel as if I'm doing something wrong, like I can't help if I'm being sick suffering with morning sickness.

Back in September, I was taken off my tablets for my anxiety and depression for taking a od ( I was rock bottom) and since then I haven't been on my tablets I've wanted to try and stay off them for the baby. But I feel this has just brought me right down.

What do you ladies think?

Hi there,

I am nearly 15 weeks pregnant and have had really bad sickness since week 4. Was in hospital on a drip and on 4 lots of sickness tablets. In the last few weeks I have started to feel really low and anxiety and unable to "pick myself up". I was already on Sertraline but had recently reduced my dosage (a couple months before I fell pregnant). I went to my GP and they have increased my dose again. I know it's so hard and I felt really guilty about it, but I also think it is the safest thing for the baby because he/she needs a happy and stable mum.
How are you feeling now? You're not alone, pregnancy is so much harder than I expected. Xx
