Im not sure if Im fighting off a virus, ate something bad, or it's hormonal but I just spent the last 12ish hours totally miserable. Oddly enough, I was nauseated but that wasn't the biggest issue. :( Terrible terrible intestinal cramps, and all the fun stuff that goes with that. In waves. All night long. You can hear my intestines right now, which is seriously weird. With every pregnancy I've had the opposite issue so I've been adding some (some, not a lot) of benefiber which has been great for keeping constipation away. Till today. /sigh
And this morning, nausea was definitely present as well. I did a little dry heaving, but fortunately there wasn't anything to lose. One bite of protein bar and a 15 minute lay down and I was feeling better. Previously, drinking soda has always helped with the nausea but Im really trying to stay away from that this time because I also deal with pregnancy induced reactive hypoglycemia, which obviously isnt helped by a ton of refined sugary drinks! Im sticking to complex carbs and protein this time, with the addition of milk thistle and B vits. I really want to try ginger too, but I just cannot swallow capsules right now. Everything Im taking is in chewable or liquid form. First docs appointment is next Monday, so I have to hold out till then. Crossing my fingers I can manage this till then. I really dont want to end up on a zofran pump again. :(
<hugs> to all the nauseated ladies. One day at a time, right?
