The sea sickness bands worked for me last time, but they do nothing for me this time around. I'm counting down the days until I'm 12 weeks when hopefully the morning sickness will start to ease off. Less than 3 weeks to go! I think I'd have a breakdown if I ended up being one of those women who have morning sickness until 20 weeks; I can't imagine anything worse!

Arrrggghh, someone at work just asked if I was pregnant coz I'm wearing the sea bands😳 I lied and said its an ear infection lol
post #283 of 1719
You could say after a week or so you have vertigo from having the ear infection & the doc said the sea bands could still help :-/

Lol, it's so complicated all this lying
post #285 of 1719
Lol. That's why I told my work. Also with IVF it's hard to keep anything a secret. It would be hard after 5 years of never missing a day to be 'sick' a few days for monitoring, retrieval & transfer. Not surprisingly 2 weeks later they started asking of it worked. I have a great office though.

Ewe I just puked in the shower, not my finest moment lol
post #288 of 1719
Serena, been there done that! Not fun!
post #289 of 1719
Oh man Serena! I feel for you. Haven't puked yet, hope I don't ever. It's a good sign tho, lots of M/S means less likely to have M/C from what I've read! Lying at work was so so so hard. I could smell trash like a mile away, went to the bathroom like 10 times a day. This one chick who just had a baby gave me the eye every time I said something like "ugh what's that smell!", and "oh, I'm giving up caffeine for now, but thanks!" And she'd make these comments like "wow, you sure are going to the bathroom a lot..." and at the time, I was furious with her! But now, I just laugh about it. Thank GOODNESS I work from home...
 
 
Today I am getting a bit worried. The nausea? Well, it came and went in like the span of a week. What in the &#^@%# is going on? This is the kind of thing that makes me worry about miscarrying. I just gotta chill, I know, but today I am just tired (didn't sleep well) and disgruntled about my pants fitting ever so tight. And these are YOGA pants. GAH. I'm not even two months prego and I'm going to have to get maternity clothes? Srsly?
 
Let these two weeks FLY so I can see a heartbeat already!!!
 
Have a great weekend mamas!

I have been pretty miserable most the day, and then right around dinner time I am so sick. I fight throwing up for a few hours until I finally just give in and puke. It sucks. I hate throwing up. I hate being so tired all the time. I hate being SO bloated. And irritable. And constipated. It all just sucks. But, then I take a step back and realize how lucky I am to be growing this sweet little baby when there are so many who can't have this. And how much I already love my little bean. At that point I can handle it. Even when my toddler is running around like a wild animal throwing fits, my house is a disaster, and I have no food in my house because what I want to eat changes daily. It's a challenging couple months, but I can do it.

I definitely feel worse right around dinner time too. Cleaning up after the girls after dinner about does me in every day. Ugh. I had a couple days where I was feeling better but now it's hitting hard again.

Morning up until about 11am is the worst for me, gets better as the day goes on, then the tiredness kicks in lol

What I am eating is changing daily too and my 3yo WOW is she giving me a run for my money. She decided this week (of all weeks!) that she no long wants to take a nap. So hard on me right now... Once evening comes, being tired makes it much worse.

 

Taking a step back is some much needed advice. Thank you for posting!

MamaMash- I love what you said, it is so important to remember how lucky & fortunate we are and how there was a time we waited for these days.

I've never seen so much processed food in my house. I'm just taking the food aversions a day at a time. Other than that I've felt great. So great I've been anxious & panicked that something terrible has happened. Trying to be less anxious & embrace that I've been lucky enough not to be sick every day.

Can we talk about breast tenderness for a second... Anyone else have days that are terrible and days they feel fine? My nipples too, today they look & feel totally normal.

My 18 month old dd has been giving me lots of issues at bedtime. She has always been so easy at bedtime and has slept through the night since she was brand new. This is all so foreign to me. Not to mention extremely challenging. We switched her to a toddler bed to see if that would help but it hasn't. I'm at a loss. I hope it gets better and she can go back to laying down awake and falling asleep on her own.

My breast and nipple tenderness changes daily. As well as the way they look. Some days my breasts actually hurt, not just tender but actual pain. And other days I have hardly any tenderness. I wouldn't worry too much about that toothfairy. Easier said than done I know. And, count yourself lucky you aren't too sick! Hang in there, I'm sure your little bean is just fine.

Yes sometimes my nipples are so sensitive that even clothing brushing against them is an irritation and when my son nurses it feels awful and my skin crawls. But then I have days where it's not bad at all and I don't feel much.

I too love what MamaMash said, I have times where I feel so crappy (haven't puked yet) but am really tired and just kind of blah... then I remind myself that it will all be worth it in the end and am hopeful that the 2nd trimester will be better (someone please tell me it gets better:)

The past couple of days almost no food sounds good to eat at all, ugh! Right now I'm eating some chips and salsa and it seems OK but not really the healthiest thing in the world, although all organic...  

About the nipple tenderness... I have days where they are super sensitive like OtherSoul said just my clothes brushing against them bothers me. Other days they are totally normal... My breasts are definitely swelling and I notice at night when I'm on my side or tummy, they hurt, so I have to adjust my position. Thinking of sleeping in a sleeping bra I bought last pregnancy or sports bra to help. Maybe I need to look into a new pillow arrangement...

I feel so lucky and connected to this baby. I'm even savoring the sickness as weird as it sounds because this will be my last pregnancy.
I do wish I could eat better though. All proteins are turning my stomach now- beans, meat, eggs, even cottage cheese.
post #299 of 1719
Gotta say, I am thankful for this thread! All the strange things I am going through are on here. I can't find food that I can tolerate consistently anymore. In fact, I have no idea what I might be okay with eating an hour from now. It's exhausting, but as mamamash mentioned, it's all worth it smile.gif ps... Nipples hurt!

Even though m/s is getting better i still have good aversions. I have been eating terrible carb and fat filled foods.

My nipple tenderness changes too. My jeans are uncomfortable when buttoned. I'm selfconscience about my growing belly because it's still a secret so I'm trying to hide it with layers.

I found that I don't have insomnia when I take my full dose of prenatals. I have to take 3 pills twice a day.
