I am 9 weeks pregnant with my second baby. My son Jacob will be 3 in April. I have had nausea and dry heaving 24 hours a day since week 5, and on top of that am so tired all the time I can barely drag! All smells send me running to the bathroom- even good ones like my fav. shampoo or my dryer sheets! (which I normally LOVE!) Fighting being so sick all the time has definitely not helped the energy either! Some days I wake up and feel pretty good, but as soon as I try to do anything I'm so exhausted and feel so miserable! When I feel like that , if I dont sit down or lay down for a while, I get even sicker! This does not work out well with a toddler in the house! My house is a disaster and my dishes and laundry are piling up and I cant seem to get it together! Does anyone have any advice at all to share? (and please be nice- i'm doing the best I can! ) I have tried napping, for a little while in the early evening , but the second I lay down he's jumping on me or poking me, saying "wake up mommy!" I dont know what to do!
