Ask Momma Wednesday #5


Please go check out Nomie's 3 Monsters for the details of this hop!

Ok, so here is my third week of this hop - and I'm honestly having trouble finding a question! But here we go:

We're trying for number two now - and while I'm extremely excited and ready to be pregnant again (not yet, just looking toward the future), I'm also nervous about how to handle a toddler while going through the possible sickness I went through with him. Just as a bit of background, I was sick for 24 weeks, as in the all day/all night kind of sick. My middle of the night bathroom trips were double duty pee/puke.

Now that I've got your attention, for those of you who have 2 kids or more, and experienced any kind of sickness though pregnancy, how did you deal with the subsequent pregnancies while caring for a little one???


  1. I'm a new follower. I have 2 kids and we are in the near future going to start trying for #3. I can't really answer your question there is an 11 yr age difference so my daughter could care for herself during my sick phase, well at least enough to get through it.

    I will say my first I was horrible sick all the time so much so I lost 15 lbs by 20 weeks and couldn't keep anything down. I was put in the hospital on an IV. But that was 11 years ago, now they give zofran or phenegran. I don't know how you feel about taking meds while pregnant. I was so afraid of another pregnancy like my first I took them at the first sign of sickness.

    They also say every pregnancy is different. My second one although I was sick feeling I only actually threw up twice. I personally thinking feeling like you need to throw up and not being able to is worse then actually doing it. I mean when you actually do it you do get a second of relief feeling.

    So who knows maybe both of us will luck out with our little ones and next pregnancy not get sick at all.

    Life of This SAHM hope you can stop by :)

  2. I'm no help here. I wasn't really sick with any of my pregnancies. Sorry.

  4. Hi, I'm a new follower from Weekend Hop.
    I have 2 girls, the first pregnancy nothing I really didn't believe I was pregnant until she started moving because I didnt have a single symptom no boob aches, no fatigue, no sickness nada! most boring pregnancy ever!
    So I wasn't worried when we found out #2 was on the way. Well that changed quick I was sick all day/ all night just like you for 22 weeks. It wasn't fun really chasing after my first and trying to keep her entertained and happy, she was 2 at the time. I think your body just clicks into pregnant mode and your able to function on a level that you normally don't, your on double duty.
    Also there is no reason to think that you will be sick again. I had two completely different pregnancies and both was pregnant with girls both times. I hope you end up having a sick free pregnancy this time around.
    We are thinking about #3 now and I'm not too worried about being sick again. Just make sure Hubby is on bored that if your really having a rough day he's on toddler duty!
    Best of luck! Looking forward to reading more.
