I first want to say this has been the worst 9 weeks of my entire life!! I can say that the severe cramping stopped and the joint/back pain stopped but thatís about it. My two biggest issues now are food aversion, and fatigue. Which of course the fatigue is being drawn by the lack of food. I want to eat really badly, Iím starving, but I can only eat certain things and I have to have a taste for something to be able to eat it. If I donít have a taste for it, then if I manage to get the food in my mouth then it tastes like dirt and I just canít keep eating it. I think my husband and non-pregnant friends are not understanding me, and think Iím just being picky & pouty. Which I wish were the case. I can bring something to work to eat, but when I try to eat it, I just want to throw up. I usually get a craving for something around lunch time but I have no access to eat that particular food (its always simple things like top roman, pizza). So in the meantime, I lose a ton of energy, get really dizzy, I get depressed and feel like curling up in a ball to shrink up like an old vegetable. And I have no support from anybody because nobody knows how I feel. I hope somebody else on this board can tell me they feel the same way so I donít feel alone. Water is also a huge issue for me, the only time I can drink it is when I get home. I guess these feelings are very similar to when you get really sick and you just donít want to eat. I think this will be my last pregnancy & only child, itís been a nightmare and Iím only 9 weeks into it! Somebody help!

Your not alone. My first pregnancy was the hardest by far. I must say though it won't last forever and your getting through the thick of things. You ate almost nearing the good parts trust me when i say it does get better! Hugs. It is tough tho right now. Hang in there!
Wow, this is so strange you posted this! I actually had a crying episode this morning while I was dry heaving. I was telling my husband that I am sooo tired of being soooo sick EVERYDAY! Haha! So imagine me crying and dry heaving at the same time this morning! I feel a lot better now, not 100%, but still not as sick as I was this morning. I keep trying to tell myself that it will be over soon enough, and the end result is soooo worth it. In the moment this morning though, I was just upset! I can tell you that I have never experienced any kind of sickness like I am experiencing now. I swear I take my temperature every morning now because I SWEAR up and down that I actually have a really bad case of the flu. Nope regular temperatures everyday, I am just pregnant! Haha! We will get through this, and when we are all holding our babies, we will know that it was all worth it
I went thru that all last week. Ended up in the ER where I got re-hydrated and they gave me liquid Zofran which got rid of the nausea and I got to actually eat real food!!!! It tasted so yummy. The hospital gave me pill form Zofran and Phenergan, I've been taking the Zofran and so far its been helping 95% of the time...it's now just when I need water, or am too hungry that I feel sick. And if I can get water or food into my system, all is well. Call your OB - or maybe go to the ER and tell them what's wrong...I'd guess you are in a similar boat that I was...I let it go on for 8 days before getting the help, it's worth a shot anyway!!!
Good luck to you hon, I hope it gets better for you quickly!!!!
I know the feeling! I have found that I need to be pre-emptive and force myself to eat before I get to the shaky, icky, miserable stage. Can you eat little snacks throughout your day? If I get to the point where I Really need to eat then nothing sounds good.
Other than that, try and force yourself to drink. Maybe try mixing a little juice or something in to make the water more appealing? I know it's the last thing you want but eating or drinking will help keep you from getting to the point of absolute misery.
