Sickness & exhaustion can be worse with twin pregnancies I naively read after I found out I was having twins. I wasn’t too worried; I was already suffering a little bit at this point (7 weeks) but only to the level that I had with Little Man which was totally manageable. I thought this was as bad as it was going to get. Oh boy, was I wrong.
So I am writing this at 15 weeks now and the morning sickness has just got worse and worse. I can honestly say it has taken over my life. Every decision I make is based on when I can eat, if I will feel sick, etc. I have become a morning sickness moaner.
If anyone asks me how I am, I answer with ‘sick’. If G asks me if I want something for dinner I look at him like he has gone crazy; why would I be able to actually eat?! Silly man. And poor Little Man has heard the sentance ‘Mummy can’t play at the moment because I feel sick’ too many times!
I know for people around me it must get a bit boring but for me it literally has taken over my whole life. Never underestimate how poorly a pregnant lady is feeling when she tells you she has morning sickness. If you are reading this feeling how I am you have probably been told a hundred times to eat a ginger biscuit and although people around you do mean well, I get it. It’s frustrating. I don’t have any advice unfortunately other than to get through it however you can and take a tiny bit of comfort in the fact that there will be an end to it. For me, eating all the time helps, oh and chocolate limes at my desk at work!
Does anyone else feel like this?
