    Hang in there! It's my first pregnany too and my first trimester was terrible as well, I lost 3kg. Am now in the 19th week and I stopped vomitting about 4 weeks ago and have gained back all the weight lost & more =P So in short, there is light at the end of the tunnel ^__^ try to eat frequent small meals n not be hungry, crackers work well! Good luck!

    Both of my pregnancies were VERY hard too. Agree with Carang on the some women have it hard at different points in pregnancy. For me the first trimester I felt horrid and the rest of the pregnancy I was so incredibly uncomfortable! I kept asking other women "Why didn't anyone tell me pregnancy was SO uncomfortable!?"

    We have two kids and I was hoping the second time around would be easier alas it was actually worse so that's it for us. Trust me though when you get to look at the most beautiful person in the world, ie. your baby, for the rest of your life it's all worth it!

    Hi Okitat! Thanks for the encouragement! Yes, I see a light at the end of the tunnel but it's such a small light at the moment! (and so many weeks away!)

    Crackers and citrus fruits seem to be working best for me, and I definitely agree that eating small amounts constantly seem to be helping.

    Good luck with your pregnancy too! Congrats on getting through the hard bit and now you can just enjoy :)

    Welcome to pregnancy, mumtobee. Haha to the can't stop crying... that's typical too :)

    The only thing to do is to keep trying and see what works. Have you tried ginger sweets? Miso soup?

    And don't think about your mum and her nine months of misery. Just think this will end around 3 months because that's what usually happens and get yourself to that mark. Virtual hugs to you!

    please, please, PLEASE talk to your doctor asap! there are safe medications that can take the edge off of the nausea. they don't cure it, but they do make it a little more tolerable.

    i didn't have meds for my first pregnancy but i did get them for my second one. made life a little easier to manage.

    Carang, some doctors are strangely reluctant to prescribe this. They just say "that's normal" and if pressed for medication say "it's not advisable". Bah.
