I am hoping to vent here a little because I am just feeling really discouraged. I keep hoping that the end of the morning sickness phase will come soon, and it has gotten better than it was, but it is still really hard to eat anything. I had a midwife appt last week, and found out I have lost 16 lbs., my ketones were high because of not eating (glucose was fine,) and I was severely dehydrated. I have always prided myself in eating healthy and taking good care of myself....it has just never been such a struggle before now.
I just need some relief. I don't look pregnant whatsoever, but I feel like crap all the time. I feel like it is not only exhausting to not feel well (and not be able to eat very much,) but worrying about it is emotionally exhausting as well. My midwife rec'd Emergen-C packets for electrolytes, vitamin B12, a cal-mag supplement, and all kinds of tips to help me eat more/consume more calories, and I am feeling better since making these changes....but still not great.
My uterus is measuring on target, and we heard the heartbeat, so it seems like the baby is unaffected. I still can't help but worry. My partner, daughter and I want this baby so badly...not to mention if anything did go wrong, I am not so sure I could do this again. I feel like it takes all of my energy not to break down and cry whenever anyone asks me how I am doing.
