I half expected it. I've been sick with my last two pregnancies, so although I had dreams of skipping the awful beginning, I had a feeling my days of feeling like a spring chicken were limited. The day after Thanksgiving it hit me. Nice of the little peanut to at least give me Thanksgiving to enjoy food for one last time.
Since Black Friday, I've been really down for the count. Nothing sounds good. Actually the thought of most food almost sends me running for the bathroom. The nausea lasts all day long... with very little relief. I'm wondering if any one has any remedies out there that I haven't yet tried... I'm desperate.
My sister texted me and said it best..
You are incredibly lucky to have had it happen so easily, unfortunately it just doesn't come free. But I'm sure the payoff is worth the price...
Absolutely the payoff of a precious miracle is worth the price. And thinking about all the people out there that would do anything to be in my shoes even on my sickest of days are what keep me going sometimes.
I am thankful.
I'm just needing a little relief in the meantime and trying to stop the feelings of guilt that come when I can't be the same mom and wife I was a few weeks ago before the nausea started...
So I thank you for your prayers.
And if you have any tips/tricks or advice for battling the constant nausea, please post them in the comments.
I will most definitely be reading each and every one of them.
