I'm only 4 weeks along and I have morning sickness 24/7. This is making work near to impossible and I have a full time job. I cant sleep at night because im constantly sick. Now I know im dehidrated so im trying to stay constant with water and crackers, but its hard to hold it all down. Ive had a very weak system my whole life, but this is terrible.
Do I have 8 more months of this and what are your suggestions to help get control of my system?
I am sorry to hear that you are so sick, however I am happy to inform you that there are safe and effective treatments for morning sickness so you do not have to suffer.
