I think people have no idea how hard bad nausea can be unless they have experienced it. It was the worst for me with DS1 but I have not been able to function for the first 15 to 18 wks with each of my successful pregnancies and was sick up until I lost the baby with my first m/c. I wanted each one of them, and they are totally worth it but it's still really hard to go through. I told DH at around 10 wks with this one that if we lost this baby...even though I really want to have 3...then I'm done. We wouldn't try again. It's just too much to put on my family, I can't be the wife or mother I need to be, working while going through that is ridiculously hard too. Having a better attitude has nothing to do with how rough your symptoms are...that's ridiculous. It's like saying well you should eat some crackers before you get up in the mornings and it'll be better. Ha!
In fairness, Jessica, you really DO need to work on your attitude......I KID I KID!!!!! LOL (Just couldn't resist teasing you.)
PCCGirl - Your "friend" sounds like a jerk, to put it nicely.

omg how horrible of her to stay those things, I agree it took me 2 years to get pregnant but i would be more than thrilled with any of my friends that had gotten pregnant before me. You really dont need a friend like that in your life especially at this time she is only going to stress you out. Maybe she is the one with the bad attitude if this is how she treats her friends i can imagine how she treats her enemies
