hctamommy. I was worried about comments with #4, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm hoping it will be the same this time.
Keeping busy is the key for me. Can you start a project you'll be excited to work on? Find something else online you can use your work downtime for? I don't know what your work setup is like, but can you use your downtime for some stretches/little exercises/working on a hobby instead of surfing?
It is so frustrating to be hungry and queasy and not want to eat anything. Re: the fast food, is there another mom/someone local who you could maybe work out a deal with, to pay/barter with them for meals?

I only usually find it uncomfortable to nurse near the end of a pregnancy. My milk gradually decreases until it's pretty much gone by the start of the 2nd tri, and then I get colostrum near the end. I have three children who gestated while I nursed. I have miscarried, but (coincidentally or not) it was only when I was still tandem nursing. Once the older nursling weaned, the next pg stuck.
