I am miserable. Been throwing up all day long. I can't stand up without throwing up. Can't eat anything. Can't keep water down. I threw up so hard I peed my pants.
Remind me why I wanted to do this again?
That's exactly how I'm feeling (mentally) and I'm way better off than you! So sorry!
I give you props for doing this again. I am such a chicken, I was scared to do it again just because of the first few months of sickness and the painful labor thing. LOL
I honestly don't want to have to go through this ever again after this. I'm just getting worn out. Those women who have very large families are impressive. Hubby's mom had 8... I think I'd die.
heyitskalista, you're a great role model! I am literally almost in tears just feeling nauseas all day, with very little vomiting. I feel so sick sometimes I wonder what I was getting myself into doing this again (third pregnancy, second baby (hopefully)). I literally cannot fathom going through this 4 times (or more). How do you manage at home with little ones?? I don't feel like a very good mom right now. My 15 month old spends quite a bit of time playing by herself while mommy lies on the floor/couch, trying my best to be interactive
I wouldn't worry about not being interactive enough. You got to take care of yourself and as long as you are taking care of your daughter's basic needs, all is well.
kristen b-- i hear what your saying...i told my mom i felt bad for my little guy as i seem to have no patience...and even more than that no energy to use distraction and such when he's having a hard time. i know this fatigue will pass...and i'll be glad when it does.
dayiscoming- (((hugs))) mama! I don't have a scale but I'm willing to be I've gained to. And all I can think about is cheese burgers and poutine right now which isn't helping! If you need to eat to feel well, do it and don't feel guilty! If you're making healthy choices, the weight will take care of itself! :)
I can't keep anything down. Water, salad, fruit, junk food.... I eat it, and 20 min later it comes back up. If i don't eat, I feel sick because I am hungry, if I eat, I am sick because I ate. I lost 5 pounds this last week. Has anyone found something they can keep down/that helps with the nausea? I tried Saltines, Chips, and pretzels. Nothing. Just as bad. I feel like I should try to eat the healthiest foods possible, so that in case I do keep something down, it is nutrient rich. So far, this has not worked.
I remember having relief from the nausea around week 13, I pray that I will get relief with this pregnancy too. I have been drinking 'canada dry' ginger ale and that seems to be refreshing right now with my nausea. So far my nausea is similar to last time, and I don't actually vomit, but just have the feelings that lead up to it. I do gag and almost gag at the thought of things. I am getting more grossed out by the herbal tea and think that I need a break from it (I was drinking the Aviva Romm pregnancy tea recipe.) Cheeseburgers and french fries at night make me feel satisfied at night... but I can't do that all the time.
I missed this! ha. I could never leave Canada because I'd miss poutine! Can ytou buy cheese curds? Its easy enough to make yourself!
I'd eat what your body wants. You'll need the sugars, especially the natural ones from fruits. And the good fats from avacados. Go with what works!!
I am so hungry!!!!!! Only problem is every time i look at any thing I get sick I just want to eat one normal meal.
I tired eating citrus- it did not work.... It made it worse for me lol. I found i can keep soup down pretty well.
