Pregnancy Pregnancy

Okay this hard for me to even say or admit- please do not bash on me.

I am 7 weeks pregnant w| our 4th pregnancy. We've had 2 miscarriages one w| twins. We found on easter we were pregnant.

At 1st I was over joyed so blessed because this is our miracle baby. But now I've gotten so sick I had to start IV therapy for severe morning sickness. I had to take medication so I could keep down even liquid.

This went from joyful- to missery. This should be THE happiest time of my life because we've wanted this baby so badly- but now I'm just so overwhelmed that I'm not even enjoying the process. :(

They gave me "B-calm" prenatals to help with nausea on top of a RX that I read up on that is used on chemotherapy patients to help with their sickness. (It's safe for baby that I know for a fact).

I've felt such guilt for this misery because like I said we've wanted another baby for so long. Our 1st and only is going to be 5 in October and has Autism. It's hard for me not to be able to hold him and play because I'm so weak and I'm on bedrest.

*sighs* I just had to vent. I got cursed out by my aunt because she can't concieve children and I was called "an ungreatful b#tch" while in the ER. My fiance had to ask her to leave. -_-

I'm high risk due to miscarriage and also a cardiac defect I was born with (pulmanary atrisia) I've had 3 open heart sugeries for and was supposed to have my 4th in August but that's before we knew about the baby.

I got medical clearence to give birth via c-section. But I'll need open heart surgery again 6 mnths after baby comes for a valve replacement.

I'm just so overwhelmed and feel such guilt for not being happy.

Anyone had rough pregnancy?

Morning sickness can really take it out of you, add all those other medical issues and the comments from your aunt, and I can't even imagine how you are handling that.  It's ok to not enjoy being sick, I had a pretty rough start with this pregnancy (not anything close to what you are dealing with!) and even though this baby is wanted more then anything, it was hard- all I wanted to do was go to bed and sleep.  As I felt better though, it was easier to get excited- I never really lost the joy about the baby, it was just a struggle to see it with all the sickness and being tired.  

I'm so sorry about all you have been through and are going through- there is an end, I promise!  Hang in there!
