I'm one who struggles to get pregnant but then complains while I am. I get hyperemesis and find it hard not to complain when I am vomiting 10-20 times per day sometimes for an hour at a time. It's worth it to get a healthy baby in the end but it isn't easy. Try to get the barf smell out of car upholstery.

I can understand its frustrating to hear someone complain over morning sickness when you are having difficulty conceiving, but I wouldn't fault them for it.

I know I had cry baby moments during my first trimester when morning sickness hit me full force, but it didn't mean I wanted my daughter any less or was any less grateful for the pregnancy.

It's a really tough place to be in when trying to conceive and seeing others complain, but I don't hold it against them and I'm guilty of it myself!

I guess I don't take any of it too personally It's not like somebody's ungrateful or taking it for granted that they're pregnant, they just don't enjoy puking. I can't fault anybody for that, vomiting isn't really enjoyable, KWIM?

That's true, I totally agree with what you're saying! I also found myself complaining about morning sickness too, but the awful thing was I ended up losing that baby and now I wish I was still sick and pregnant. So I can also understand where many women on here are coming from as well. I guess its just hard not to feel bitter, jealous and hurt when struggling to conceive or going through a loss (or several losses) so I can understand why it can hurt to see women complaining (let along enjoying) through their pregnancies. Its difficult either way, I know from personal experience how painful a loss can be but I would never wish a loss on anyone (not saying anyone on here is wishing that) and also know that if someone hasn't gone through it they can't help that either. I guess we just need to be mindful considering the circumstances. I think if I was pregnant and knew a friend or family member that was going through struggles or loss that I would just be really careful of what I say and accept the fact that they may be jealous, bitter or resentful. Its all part of the grieving process and totally natural.

i am one that cant stand being sick but love being pregnant. I have also had several losses yet, I feel compassionate for those who are sick because feeling like you have the flu, or puking even 1 times per day, everyday for a couple months... is terrible.
its depressing and crippling and sometimes very bad for your body.

I do know couples w fertility issues and even with the news of pregnancy, the sickness was a struggle factor for them deciding to do it again or not.
