hi everyone, im new here and im happy to be here. i am a 100% black woman and im married to a white german, i have been having dificult experiences with my pregnancy, i am in my second trimester and im still vomitting more than usual, my nausea is really very high, i get very weak and tired anytime i vomit and so i have to lie down for hours before i get stable again,in a day, when the vomitting starts i could vomit like 3-4 times, sometimes very heavily, i complain whenever i go for ante-natal but my midwife always tell me, there is nothing wrong with me whenever she examines me, its just my pregnancy symptoms, iv been pregnant before with a man who was also black but i never felt this way, i never vomitted or had any nausea, i was vey young then and it was my first pregnancy but it was very easy and normal for me, im wondering could it be because my baby is a mixed-raced, that is why im experiencing these symptoms?

Well, each pregnancy is different. Just your first one was nice and easy, doesn't mean that every single one is going to be. You said that you have talked to your doctor about it and they weren't concerned? Maybe you should mention Rh testing next time. Rh is like if you have O+ but your baby has the opposite like O-. The - can make you sicker than a dog. I would look more into it and ask your doctor about it.
