  • I've been sick through my whole pregnancy. Although its not quite as bad as the first trimester, I am throwing up everyday at least 5 times. I'm due with my third daughter at the end of March. I'm recently divorced & boyfreind lives in Florida. Any advice?

  • I had both with my daughter. While i have no doubt that the depression is totally hormonal, please tell your doc about it if you already haven't. I'm not trying to scare you at all, but most depression thru pregnancy leads to post partum depression as well (which i also had). Know that there's not something wrong with you, you aren't crazy, just your hormones....and again, let your doc know if you haven't already. (((HUGS)))

  • To say I was sick was an understatement. My doctors went to the extent of advising me to think twice before having more babies because I was so sick. At 6 months pregnant I still could not go anywhere with food I got soo sick. I was hospitalized in the begining because I would go days without eating or drinking. They did tell me this...they hospitalized me for my own sake not for the babies. An infant is just find even when we are that ill. I was on a prescription for the nausea and it helped a lot. Both of my girls were big babies and healthy...as for me it was the worst diet of my life!
