I have a 6 week old baby, and while I was pregnant with her I had hyperemesis, which is a severe form of Morning Sickness that goes above and beyond the call of sickness. It was so bad I had to quit my job and never went anywhere during my pregnancy. I stayed in bed most of the time and lost 25 lbs. I also was diagnosed with Anemia and passed out a couple times, in a Walmart once --- uber embarassing by the way.
KNOWING THIS --- I really want more children, but I just hate the 9 month process [or in my case, the full 10 months and 2 days]. Whats the chances of me having the same issues this time around? How many of you experienced hyperemesis? Am I stupid to want more? When would be a good time to have another baby if the possibility of me being so sick is still there?

I had horrible hyperemesis with my first pregnancy. I threw up multiple times every day for most of my pregnancy. I was hospitalized 4 times because I was so sick. My daughter is now 20 months old, and I'm 4 months pregnant. I'm still puking all the time. Every day. It's horrible, and worse this time because I can't just curl up in a ball in bed...I am busy chasing a toddler around and trying to put on a happy face because that is what she deserves to see. This will be my last pregnancy and I feel crazy for even doing it again. My husband is a saint and gets up with me during the night when I throw up, but it's hard on the whole family. We've decided that if we want a third child, we'll adopt. I can't go through this again.
