Okay, more like 24/7 sickness
Mine has begun and if it's anything like last time, this is how it's going to be until around 14 weeks or so. I was working full time last pregnancy and I worked alone 90% of the time, so as long as I could drag my butt out of bed and get myself to the office, I could essentially deal with things and it didn't matter if it wasn't pretty ;)
This time around I have DD to think about and I'm already feeling guilty because we have missed out on two activities with her play group - a trip to the marine biology center yesterday (the thought of smelling sea creatures actually made me cry) and another meetup today. But I do not want us to have to spend the rest of the summer at home.
So, maybe we could use this thread to share our tips and tricks for getting through the yucky times! I pretty much think I tried it all in my last pregnancy (to no avail) but you never know what we might learn from one another that could help ease things even a tiny bit.
The things that were the most beneficial, though nothing completely got rid of the sickies, was making sure I got a good night's sleep, forcing myself to eat little snacks all day long so my stomach was never empty (always kept a bag of raw almonds with me), and exercising. That one was the hardest, because who feels like moving around when you're on the verge of hurling?!?!?!
I feel like I need to step it up though and try some new things so that I can be a present, functioning mom to my little lady
What have you ladies had the most success with?
