Well, I'm feeling a bit better. I actually got through a LONG work day today (over 9 hours with only a 1/2 hour break) without falling asleep while standing!
I've got that all the time nausea also. And, my nausea seems to get worse at night. In the morning I can stave it off with food somewhat but at night, nothing works. I never seem to have the food I want to eat on hand so... But today I was able to control it a bit. It was shameful but... I sipped two sodas all day. I'm hiding (or trying to hide, my moodswings/need to wear bigger clothing may give it away before I'm ready) my pregnancy at work so I can't just snack. Before I got pregnant I came into work with a large coffee in hand, took a smoke break once a day, and didn't eat much as I was trying to lose weight. I've obviously cut out the coffee and smoking and I can't add in eating too, with everything else it will just be too obvious. Plus, the act of chewing makes me sick!
However, after spending the day sipping I've realized that if I can get my food through drink I might be better off. So, I'm going to start taking soups for lunch (no chunks! I'd gag on those) and probably a smoothie for the ride to work.
I'm breaking out too. Doesn't help that I'm out of honey and can't get more until payday.
Cool about the u/s!
I've got you beat, HollysMom, I've still got weight from my pregnancy with my oldest! I lost all the weight from my youngest but didn't touch what I gained with my oldest.
No seriously, I know how you feel. I know that I should eat and that I should make myself eat even when I feel sick but it is so hard. I just keep thinking about all the weight that I DON'T want to gain... Ugly cycle.
For those with painful ears, have you tried peroxide?
That sucks about the dog bite!
Ok, has anyone been looking around on the newborn board? I hadn't... Until today. I was scrolling down to get to the due date boards and I saw the topic by the side of Life with a Babe was something about May '07 mamas so I took a look.
*Sigh* Until this point I was living in the moment of the pregnancy, knowing it will likely be my last. But now, I can't wait for my BABY to be here!
