: Yeah, we're doing that. My mother-in-law takes care of Hannah while Mrs. Steve is at her part-time job during the day, and MIL has been coming over earlier and staying later. She's been a gigantic help. I think we're just getting frustrated at the whole thing and questioning whether this pregnancy was a good idea.
I am so glad your MIL is becoming closer to Hannah. That is great that she is helping out!
I wish there was something I could do for Mrs. Steve. I tried talking to a good friend of mine who is a high-risk OB/GYN physician and he said what he usually recommends is vitamin B6, ginger, or an herb called Milk Thistle by Nature's Way which they sell at a health food store. He says that vitamin B6 is supposed to be the most effective of all. I did tell him nothing seems to be working for her and he said for her to have several small meals a day that she will tolerate and LOTS of rest. Has she had excessive vomiting? If things get worse, she may need IV fluids. I also mentioned Phenergan or Reglan to him and as I said, he too ded not feel it should be taken during the first trimester because it can cause birth defects as it is a class C drug and further studies are still needed to prove that the drug will not.
I hope she is feeling a bit better today. I hope you and your family had a Happy Thanksgiving.
Take Care. Keep me posted.
