Sick, Sick, Sick

Okay, so yesterday, I left work early. I threw up once at home before I left and thought I’d be okay, but by 9, I had thrown up twice more at work and still felt terrible. I went home because I didn’t really want to be kneeling in that floor any more! Plus, I really needed a couch to lay down on. It was the worst day I’ve had by far. I went home and took some morning sickness balm stuff that Jaimee recommended, but my stomach still felt queasy… the smell of that stuff is absolutely terrible! I was finally able to eat something around 4 o’clock, but not too much.

I was hoping today would be better and it did start out better. I took some of that smelly stuff before I got up as was suggested to me and then threw it up after brushing my teeth, which was the only time I would even gag when I was pregnant with Alyx. Anyway, I went to work and felt okay until about 8:30…. and then my stomach started again, but I kept everything down… probably because the only thing I even tried was some saltine crackers and raspberry tea (it’s supposed to be good for pregnant women). However, I still felt terrible until around 2pm and then my stomach stopped its queasiness for a little while.

This time around certainly is a lot different from being pregnant with Alyx. Maybe this will be a BOY!

    I’m sorry you’re having a hard time…hopefully it will subside soon. Mine magically stopped right at 12 weeks. Funny you say maybe this one’s a boy…I felt great with Sam but was horribly sick with Sophie! The only thing that helped me was constant snacking on crackers, toast, anything bland and dry! I ate all day long but rarely had an actual meal. I’m praying you feel better soon!
