Uggh...Now I remember what my first trimesters are like--miserable! I am constipated, nauseous, and have started gagging and retching. Nothing sounds good to eat, while seeing, thinking, or hearing about most foods makes me feel like I am going to vomit. When I do eat I have to fight back the vomiting, when I don't, I gag, retch, and am severely nauseous. I can feel big lumps in my intestines/bowels. When I am able to poo it is very little, hard, and difficult to eliminate. I am just feeling awful.
I tried psylium which made things much worse (excessive gas and bloating). Now trying prunes, prune juice, lots of fruit, water, walking, and magnesium carbonate. Not much has moved. I just feel like curling up in the fetal position and crying.
SO is thanking me for "taking one for the team". He also brought me flowers, but beyond that feels helpless. Not much he can do. I did tell him he needs to make sure I eat. When I am like this I have a tendency to just lay in bed and not be able to get up and make myself eat which makes everything worse.
Sorry for the whine, but I needed to get it out. Can't imagine feeling like this for another 5 weeks. I do recall that this was a first trimester only thing for me and the 2nd and 3rd are a breeze (except when baby is dancing on my cervix, or playing soccer on my ribs).
