  • For what? I'm a little confused about the question but as far as the sickness call the doc and ask for's pregnancy safe and works really quickly.

  • The morning sickness should go away after the first trimester.

    As for the father, well I would just tell him if he didn't want anymore he should have kept his dingy in his pants!! You didn't do this alone so he needs to suck it up and take responsiblity. Good Luck.

  • not sure the question either.. pregnancy and nausea during the first trimester (and sometimes beyond) is normal. But you're probably stressed as well and that doesn't help. Call your doc.

  • The morning sickness will pass. Not sure if it's true, but I've also heard it's a sign of a healthy baby. You came to a good place to get support - lots of ideas and encouragement here!

  • If you have severe morning sickness ask your dr about zofran and do your best to keep your blood sugar regulated, low blood sugar can worsen the morning sickeness. Salty and sour worked best for me & eat often not much but keep something in your stomach. Sweets seem to worsen the nausea probably cuz of the sugar spike.
    I know it must be hard to be sick and not have support from the father when you need it most. I would join one of the many pregnancy groups here. We all have man trouble from time to time I will pray that he comes around soon otherwise you may have to make a decision to put up with him or let him go if he can get on board with you and his child. Whether he likes it on not this baby is coming so he need to deciede what kind of father he is going to be.
