The greatest reminder

I had yet another sickness bug this week - and spent Thursday getting reacquainted with the bathroom floor and the basin which was my closest companion during my pregnancy with Cara.
I felt awful. I threw up so much the capillaries around my eyes burst and gave me some interesting purple freckles.
I think, over the last four months or so, I have forgotten just how awful I found my last pregnancy. How throwing up was a daily occurence - how the sickness never really went away and how I had to take several medications just to get through the day.
I have forgotten how tired I was and how run down I was (although I can only think the severity of the bugs which had knocked me for six over the last few months has to be something to do with the fact my nutrition for the last year has largely revolved around cornettos and custard creams...).
But if there is any greater contraceptive in the world than remembering - vividly- the hell that is Hyperemesis (and believe me, it is hell) I'd like to know what it is.
Never again.

Poor you, there is nothing worse than feeling/being sick whilst having to look after children too.
Yes, I remember being so very sick while pregnant with number 3, vowed I would never do it again. Oops but I did, planned too & was fine luckily.
Hope you are feeling better soon.
