I discovered during my pregnancies that the people I know are liars. Sure they meant well, but had I known then what I know now, I'd never have believed them in the first place. Following are the lies they told me and the truths I found. I am so glad I have my children but I'm really glad I won't have to endure the "joy" of pregnancy again.
I am 24 weeks pregnant with twins and have ended up in the ER three times for dehydration. Not to mention I have a 2 year old son. I couldn't continue living like this, I could not function. I had to take care of my son. I found this book online about chinese accupressure to eliminate morning sickness. It actually worked for me and the best part was that it is a massage everyday on certain pressure points on the body and soon your nausea, headache, vomiting, dry mouth, everything you eat makes you sick feeling is GONE!!!!!

I went to my gynocologist 2 weeks ago because I suspected that I was pregnant. The cyst that froms each month in case the woman gets pregnant had burst (normal) on my right side but remained on my left ovary. My husband and I had had unprotected sex about 1 week prior to that apponintment, so about 3 weeks ago. Because of that last incident, my gynocologist said it was possible that I could still get pregnant from that last time, but that it was too early to tell by ultrasound. My period came last Friday and lasted for two days with average flow.

We are nine weeks pregnant and I feel like @#$#@. My husband doesn't get it. His attitude is that since I don't "look" pregnant then I shouldn't be complaining.

I have just found out I am about 5 weeks pregnant. I'm suffering from nausea (no big surprise there) and food aversion. Nothing seems desirable to me. I'm concerned about eating enough and giving my baby the right nutrition.
I work full time in retail so it's hard to find the time and energy to cook or to eat full meals. Add to that I can't seem to find room in my stomach for half a can of soup and I'm at a bit of a loss.
