"I did have M.S with my first but it was more of an afternoon-night nauseated feeling, and I don't think I ever really vomited.
I am now in the very early stages of my second pregnancy and wow, am I in the same boat as you!
Cannot even believe how sick I have got this time around. ):"

After a very upsetting time from having a couple of miscarriages, I finally got my wish. To become a mother.
Found a yoga class that's at a work friendly time and in Napier CBD
Just curious....Has anyone had 2 completely different pregnancies and had the same gender?

"Hi Im Rebecca and Im from KK in Ireland. Living in Christchurch for the past 6 years and due to have babay number 2 in about 4 weeks. I have a feeling I may have seen your daughter's name on my daughter's Daycare sign in book. I remember seeing the name Naoise and was wondering if her parents were Irish.

"Hi I am going through the same thing sick with constant vomiting and have recently been admitted to hospital. Since coming out I've gotten myself all rehydrated again and am now trying my best to keep my fluids up to prevent myself from becoming as ill as I was. If your not feeling well get yourself down to the ED cause you might have high key tones and could possible be very de-hydrated which is not good for your body at all and could only be adding to the pain of being sick! I've been through this once before with my second child and found having the drip can really make a diffrence to getting you a step closer to felling healthy again."

"i think the heat is getting to all us pregnant ladies right now, especially those of us in the third trimester! I'm coming home from work and having cool baths and ice blocks every day! I find this helps with my moods i've also been putting cold packs in the back of my belly bands at work - they hold it roughly in place so i can keep going - a firm fitting singlet will do the same thing.
As for your babies health, it sounds like they are on to it with up and coming appointments and scans to make sure everything is ok. Nothing anyone can say at this point will stop you worrying because your maternal instincts are strong already! But if there is anything to be concerned about the medical professionals will let you know. You're job is just to try not to stress.
Lots of people are single parents these days. It doesn't matter how many parents a child has as long as they feel safe and loved. Just make sure you have someone for support too, a family member or friend you can rely on.
