I fell pregnant in 2014 and was so excited but unfortunately when I hit 10 weeks I had a miscarriage and explaining to my little 3 year old I no longer had a baby in my tummy was difficult. For months she kept telling the world I had a baby in my tummy and luckily in January 2015 I fell pregnant again. I had forgotten how sick I was when I was pregnant with my first so when I started with my morning sickness my little girl would just watch and say nothing. My hubby would rub my back so that’s what she started to do and by 3 months I thought it would be over but I continued to vomit every morning and feel sick every day and night. All I wished was for some relief and to be able to feel and eat like I use to. My little would question the food I would eat and what I would drink was different so she found it unusual. My answer was ‘ mummy feels sick because she has a baby in her tummy’. She would say yes momma and move on quickly. About 1 month ago she observed as I vomited again and once I was done she questioned me if I was done and if I felt better.? I answered with yes I’m ok Bella. She wrapped her arms around my neck and started crying ‘ mumma I want you to feel better I don’t like you sick’ and continued to cry. I had no idea the effect my morning sickness and pregnancy was having on my little girl. I was in tears after I saw how distressed she was seeing me. I struggle some days to play with her , feed her , be there for her as a mum and it really hurts me. We honestly need more support , research and help for mums that suffer and have no support around them during their pregnancies. It’s unfair on every mother and the kids suffer to. I know try and distract her when I’m sick and tell her I’m ok even though she knows I’m not.
