Congrats Snowbell & Jazz on the HB!!
Jaz - I also have low BP & CONSTANT nausea for 2 weeks. I've felt SO crappy. I finally got some seltzer water and lemonade and am mixing them. There's some sodium in the seltzer which helps a bit. I couldn't drink plain water b/c of the constant nausea and am sick of the sugar in soda, so I wasn't drinking enough. I've also had a hard time eating but I tell ya, I had the most amazing baguette & mozzarella and now I'm living on those & fruit leather. You can only live on saltines for so long
the low BP is from the arteries relaxing and the increased blood volume for the baby's circulatory system. it'll also make you cold & depressed & nauseas. Make sure to eat something every 2 hours. You have to drink extra to help increase blood volume for baby too.
I'm feeling better today, not sure if it's from the change in fluid intake or just a natural shift.
Oh, btw- I had my 8 week u/s on Friday. HB is 171 and the baby is 19mm long! I've officially graduated from the fertility clinic and am now looking for an OB.
Continued luck everyone for happy & healthy 9 months! I'm still cautious of course for another few weeks and then through the initial screening tests.
