I am having a very hard time all day now, especially bad in the evenings. I have two kids and don't know how to explain to them what is the matter with me. I cannot sit with them at the dinner table and every little thing sets off nausea. Do I have options? What do I tell me kids? I am 9 1/2 weeks pregnant and due to see my midwife in 3 weeks.
There are options which you can discuss with our specially trained counsellors at our toll free number (1 800-436-8477).
