  1. I had an everyday all day morning sickness until week 25, and nothing was helping (only ginger gum that I discovered way too late).

  2. That’s good to know! Maybe there’s still hope. I meant to add in the OP that I’m taking zofran, but it only seems to just barely take the edge off. I have ginger candy and that doesn’t really help, but maybe I’ll try the ginger gum.

  3. Oh no, I'm so sorry that Zofran isn't helping!! Maybe there are some alternative medications you could try? I know some people take unisom + vit B6 and it seems to work for them.

  4. Do you and your kids watch Bluey? There is an episode "Monkeyjocks" that covers decluttering and the exact issue comes up - everything is "special" to them. That episode really helped my kids decide what to actually keep and what to donate/gift/trash from their play room.

  5. I start by listing off a bunch of things I'd like to get rid of: "I was thinking your blocks, your big legos, the potato head stuff, the kitchen and pretend food, your magna tiles, and this big truck you never play with." I know going in that I'd be happy if we got rid of two or three of those things, so he gets to save things if he wants to.

  6. This photo made me feel so heard. My house looks like this, except with toys instead of boxes. I’ve got three kids + one on the way. ADHD makes me so hard to accomplish anything, and when you add morning sickness to the mix, it’s just rough.

  7. You use the swing for about 6 months, and in my experience it was totally worth it. Need a shower? Throw them in the swing in the bathroom. Want to clean? Turn on the swing to keep them busy. I used that thing every day.

  8. I feel you. I’m almost 9 weeks and all I’ve been wanting is egg McMuffins from McDonald’s. And hash browns.

  9. My firstborn was an emergency c-section, and my second and third were both vaginal birth after c-section and I didn’t have an epidural with either of them. My labors were super fast so I wouldn’t have even had time, but I cannot Imagine giving birth with an epidural after my experience without one. From my understanding it can potentially slow labor down and increase your risk of having a c-section.

  10. OP, I’m so sorry you’re getting such pushback from your friends. There’s no shame in not breastfeeding. It’s okay to feel uncomfortable about it. There’s no right or wrong way to feel. I’ve breastfed my babies, and while I wouldn’t trade it for anything, there’s been times when I wished I would have supplemented because even with pumping, my babies never took bottles. I have friends that felt uncomfortable about breastfeeding and ended up formula feeding and their babies were happy and healthy. Fed is best, no matter what the method is. You got this mama. You’ll know what feels right once baby is born. Just focus on taking care of that sweet little bundle, and taking care of you.
