I teach third grade and we go back tomorrow after a nice long holiday break. I am 7 weeks and just terrified that morning sickness is in its way and I will have to deal with that and 23 students all day!! I also have NO idea how i will stay awake all day . Maybe I'll be one of the lucky few who don't get it. Anyone else a teacher?

I'm a teacher but currently am a SAHM. I student taught through my first pregnancy and had a hard time with it in the beginning, and then taught through most of my 2nd pregnancy. I started teaching from my stool a lot more and I actually slept during lunch.

Yeah it was mostly during the first trimester that I had to do that. I had to lock my door or a million people and kids would try to come in.

I really hope you feel ok! It can be hard to stay on your feet all day and keep it together for a bunch of kids. Let us know how it goes.

I was until may, 2011. I then became a SAHM. I taught during my pregnancies with #3 and #4 and boy I don't miss it.

Btw I have a 3rd grader, so thank you for teaching babies like mine

Ugh i teach second grade and my husband teaches 8th grade... I am dreading tomorrow and its just a teachers work day!!! I have a mini fridge in my class and I bought some orange juice to keep in my room along with some cashews and almonds. I am hoping that it helps. My Ob suggested taking my prenatal at lunch time because it turns up my nausea as well. Hoping for the best... On the bright side ladies, we just have to make it til the end of the school year and next school year FMLA will keep us home til almost christmas break or after to be with our little nugget!

I am an elementary school librarian (so yes I am still a teacher) but taught first grade through pregnancies 2 and 3. It sucks at the beginning but the positive side is when we are all huge and feel miserable we won't be at work. I would much rather deal with this part of it than at the end when I can barely waddle in the door. LOL. I am thankful today is my open day and not my day full of classes. With DD#2 I locked the door and would lay on a beanbag on the floor for a nap or put my head down at my desk. I don't really get a plan time anymore because I have the doors open all day but I'm so tempted to take one at the end of the day before I go home to my kids and all the noise and chaos that goes with them.

I am a substitute teacher and teach 3 days a week. I am very thankful I have 1 more week off of work because I always feel bad in the morning. I also know that I probably won't be very busy when school does start because teachers don't want to take time off work when they had 3 weeks off. I hope you ladies start feeling better soon because being a teacher is one of the hardest jobs there are

Ugh--I felt HORRIBLE this morning--gagging like crazy the whole way to work and at least through the first hour. Terrible! I feel fine now, but this morning STUNK. I am exhausted already and half the day is still to come!
