First Trimester = Bedridden due to morning sickness?

Mums, is it by default that first trimester is a bedridden period due to severe morning sickness, nausea and fatigue? For the working mums, do they put on a strong show at work and endure the impossible?

Yes for me too. The minute i’m awake, my morning sickness starts and it won’t stop until i go back to sleep. I’m lucky i’m a fulltime housewife. But staying on your own, with no help, kinda sucks. My house is in a mess. My husband tries to help wherever he can but he works long hours so i understand that he’s tired. I just engaged part time helper this coming wednesday. Hope it will help lessen my burden. I dont know how working mums do it, managing the nausea and all. Really salute you ladies!

Omg. And I thought mine was bad... Hope all is well with you and the baby.

I think she should rest first from her work and when feel better can continue again her work.

Not necessary as some people shows no sign of symptoms at all. So it varies.

You can consider about Rest from Work for few month till you feel better

I took 2 months sabbatical leave... as it is unmanageable😞

For me yes, so I took unpaid leave from work.
