I’m currently laying on an airplane pillow under my desk with my door closed (and locked) because I’ve convinced myself that it’s totally fine to sleep during my lunch hour.

Background: I’m 7 weeks pregnant as of yesterday and today marks the sixth straight day of barely eating and constant sickness. Realistically I cannot take but so many days off due to morning sickness because: 1) I need to reserve days for maternity leave and 2) my job requires me to be present for court and shit. The other issue is I can only have so many days of “stomach bug” before people want to know what’s going on.

I called the doctor and they had me get some otc meds but none have helped so far. The vitamin b6 takes a little while to help I think but I swear the emetryl makes me immediately throw up. They will not prescribe meds in the first trimester unless you are super high risk for dehydration or other issues.

Did anyone have morning sickness this bad and have to keep working? What did you do?

I find myself hating this little parasite more and more. I wanted this, but not THIS. I don't know how I'm supposed to live like this!!!
