So ive pretty much been sick constantly with this pregnancy... my SO has been very helpful with DD, but I feel bad that he has most of the responsibility. It use to be just me and LO, so I was used to constantly doing it all by myself. Anyway, I feel completely useless. I dont have any energy to take her to the park or get on the floor and play with her. She keeps asking me if i feel better... I dont want her to think of me as a lazy sick person or something =( . I still give her baths (and play with her bath toys with her), and read to her at night.. Is there other ways I can make sure i'm paying enough attention? Maybe i'm over thinking all of this...

I had bad morning sickness with this pregnancy, the whole first trimester and first few weeks of the 2nd trimester. I have a 2 yr old and 7 yr old.
It sucked having to get up, throw up, take the oldest to school, be sick with a super-active toddler, during the day, buuut..i just kept looking for things that helped with the morning sickness, and tried to go on with life as normal.

Starbursts worked for me.
