Hi Ladies, I would really appreciate some kind souls help with this! I am currently studying for my degree in psychology and I have a report due at the end of the month. one of my participants in a study has dropped out at the last minute and I'm really stuck. I need to interview someone who is in first/early second trimester, and who is experiencing morning sickness. The report is on women's experiences of pregnancy whilst experiencing morning sickness/hyperemesis. I am currently pregnant myself, and have had morning sickness for this pregnancy and also for my previous one, hence my interest :) the interview takes no more than half an hour, with a bit of time either side for introductions and debriefing at the end. I live in Leitrim, so anyone in Leitrim, Cavan, Longford is ideal, but I am willing to travel. And if sonmeone was free this week, that would be great as I'm running out of time to get this written up :weep the report is confidential and names will be changed to ensure this. If anyone would be willing to do this, I would be much appreciative. Feel free to PM me any questions you might have. Thanks

Hi, Just a suggestion...but would you consider sharing a link to an online survey. this way you could get feedback from multiple people and people might be more willing to partake? is very good.

Hi, I would if it was a quantitative study (measurable data) that I was looking for, unfortunately the course demands a qualitative approach so it needs to be interview based in order to get a depth of understanding about the experiences. Thanks for replying though :) I knew it was a long shot for someone to volunteer but had to try! my topic was great when I had my interviewees, but once one pulled out, its rather difficult to get someone, as most people don't tell you they are pregnant until the second trimester.

Have you posted on other sites? rollercoaster, magicmum, heymammy, I don't fit your criteria but I'm sure someone would love to help you. What about puttting up a few notices in some playschools or local clubs in your area or even outside your area. Hope you get somebody in time..I'm sure it is just a matter of getting the word out as far as possible. Facebook? Local radio? ad in local shops?
