6 weeks

Nobody tells you how hard it is to deal with morning sickness when your 11 month old is screaming outside the bathroom door while you throw up.

It's official... I've got a pretty bad case of morning sickness now at 6 weeks. The nausea continues all day long, and the exhaustion from growing a baby AND keeping up with Shepherd toddling around is just too much.

I think I'll go back to bed

I know how you feel. I have a 9 month old and I am 7 months pregnant. I am exausted! I guess it will get easier...when they start school! LOL

I guess that is the upside to having all my kids at the same time.

That being said, when I DO get sick, they just come in the bathroom with me.

Girl, I am so sorry. I am now 29 weeks and have been sick the whole damn time. My girl was 12 months at the stage you are at and I swear it was the hardest thing I have ever done. My only helpful sugestion is that if you have any friends/family/paid caregivers etc. who can take him for a couple hours, take them up on it. It is good for both of you.

Oh sweetie!! I am so sorry you got stuck with the morning sickness. Were you sick the last pregnancy too, I can't remember? I just can't imagine, it's hard enough being so frickin' tired all the time, I can't imagine being nauseated as well. I hope you get some time to yourself on the weekends, I know I'm counting down til this one.

I found you through Erika and have been lurking for the last week or so. I was really drawn to your site because I am also from Raleigh and I relocated to the northern neck of Virginia a little over two years ago, oh yeah and I am about 8.5 weeks pregnant. I am slowly making my way through your archives and reading up on your first pregnancy. I hope your morning sickness starts to subside some.

Ugh. I'm sorry. I realize that's totally inadequate and not at all helpful but...I'm sorry!
