A couple weeks ago, I actually threw up for the first time during a pregnancy.
I went all pregnancy with DS without throwing up, got through the first trimester of this one without throwing up, and then BAM... I threw up one night. Then I felt icky for the next week and couldn't eat anything but Kraft Mac & Cheese
:. Seriously, that was the ONE food that made me actually feel good! After living off that for a week (I even made it for breakfast one day!), I finally got back into eating some more normal (and healthier!) foods, and now I'm pretty much back to eating normal, but still have that nausea feeling at times and can't eat nearly as much at a time either. And some stuff just doesn't sound good. I feel like I'm in the first trimester with preg #1.
I also had horrid sacrum pain and sciatica for the last couple months, but I *finally* went to see a wonderful chiropractor whom everyone in the natural birth community here sees. She's awesome. After just 3 visits, I could walk to the bathroom in the middle of the night without being afraid that my next step might be the last one I could do without falling over in pain. And now this week my back actually feels GOOD. Wow. I'm seeing her twice a week right now to keep everything in place. And it's also neat that she's preggo too, so she has recent knowledge of what I'm going through (she's due in August).
Anyway, I don't know why my first trimester went so easy and then the nausea ramped up in the second trimester. Very weird! I just hit 20 weeks (also due Thanksgiving
). My baby is way down low and sitting on my bladder, so last week I had to pee 4 times a night.
: The last couple nights, I was back down to 2 times, which is much more tolerable.
But hey, we're halfway there, right? We can do it. We're WOMEN! Just think what would happen if your DH were the one carrying the baby?
