Ha. Ha. HA. Excuse me while I laugh at myself for my last pregnancy post when I said I would “welcome morning sickness.” WHAT WAS I THINKING? I forgot how awful it feels. Oh my word. This is good though!
I can’t stand the smell of my face wash, conditioner, Jimmy’s body wash, coffee, and everything else in the world that has any sort of smell. I can’t drink coffee. I can’t eat fruit. Everything is disgusting. I’m so tired, too. Ready for an example of how pathetic I am?
The other day I put Sadie down for a nap at 1:30 and went straight to the couch. I fell asleep until 2:00 pm and woke up because Niva wanted to go outside. I let her out, ate a spoonful of peanut butter (which sadly tasted gross), and then fell back asleep until 3:00 pm, when I woke up to Sadie crying for me to get her.
Like I said, pathetic. I just don’t feel like myself, and that’s the hardest thing. I feel like I’m in a fog of yucky, tired, sickness with no motivation. But I know it will go away and I will feel like myself again.
Things I have tried for morning sickness:
-Preggie Pop Drops
-Unisom and B6
-Saltine crackers, pretzels, and tortilla chips
All of the above remedies will help, then they are disgusting and I never want to see them again. Unisom and B6 knocked me out. I feel like the theory for that is that you can’t feel nauseous if you’re unconscious, lol. Saltine crackers and sleeping are the only things that seem to really help at the moment.
It’s now late April as I go to post this diary entry and I have to say, that was pretty awful! I didn’t even finish the post 😆
I’m pretty sure I was also sick with the flu at the same time, so that might explain why everything felt extra hard, icky, and just blah! I’m happy to report that I’m almost through the first trimester and the morning sickness is slowly getting better 😊
Also of note at this point in the pregnancy was that we told Jimmy’s family! His dad found out by accident because he saw the seabands I wore for morning sickness sitting around and asked what they were 😂
We told Jimmy’s mom, stepdad, and stepsister one night when they came over and they were so excited! Jimmy told his brother at work and I told his sister in person. Such happy times and memories!
