Writing through the nausea…thanks for the hints on how to try and manage it! I need to go to the store and stock up on candies, crackers, etc. I also need to find my sea bands. I’ll try those remedies before medication. Knock wood, I haven’t actually vomited yet…
In the meantime, I wonder at what point I will start to feel comfortable with being pregnant. I don’t mean physically. I’m ok with the symptoms as they are a “nice” reminder that I’m actually pregnant. I mean emotionally. When will I feel safe and secure?
I don’t want to read too much about pregnancy. I don’t want to even think about planning for anything or think about options (cloth vs disposable diapers, natural or epidural, etc.) for fear that I will start to think about, get excited and then find out something bad has happened.
I guess I’ll take it one day at a time.
Is ok not to plan now? It’s hard for me because I’m such a planner. I did buy a Bella band because my bloat baby is so bad in the evenings that all of my pants are very uncomfortable and if we go out at night I need something to help. I don’t know if it will actually help but I’m hoping!
Christmas is going to be so low key for us. I barely could get 20 holiday cards out. I know what I want to cook for dinner but getting to the store is a different challenge. I’m hoping that Friday will bring me lots of energy! Thank goodness for online shopping and a day of energy last week when I got everything done!
Wow I’m a negative nelly today. I need to suck it up! “They” aren’t kidding when they say you get hormonal during pregnancy. Sometimes I feel like a different person has taken over my body (ha ha, it actually is true!).
My little friend is sticking close which is nice!
