Where do I even begin? I am not a good patient or that good at being sick. Since I've been feeling bad for the past few weeks you can imagine that has made it difficult for the people around me. Lucky you. Honestly, my morning (24/7) sickness has been getting better. Some days I don't throw up at all. Then there are the days when I can't keep anything down. That's actually progress from being sick everyday.
I still haven't quite learned what makes this baby tick. With Savannah as long as I had fresh fruit (mainly watermelon) and fresh ingredients to make salad I was good. I couldn't eat meat with her at all. This time around it appears that anything fried grosses me out. So far the only thing that I've been able to keep down is baked potatoes. Baked potatoes and those little thirty nine cent burritos that you microwave. Don't judge me. Those things are pretty good after you sprinkle cheese on them and smother them in sour cream. Don't knock it 'til you try it.
I haven't had a problem with breakfast lately. It seems that my normal egg, bacon and pepper jack cheese sandwich on toast is still good to go. I've been trying to narrow down all the things that could be triggering my sickness. Am I not eating enough? Am I going too long between meals? I have friends who talk about how they never got sick while they were pregnant and all they did was eat eat eat. I wonder what that's like? To be able to freely eat without the food aversions...must be nice. Hopefully, things will work themselves out as I get closer to my second trimester. With Savannah I was sick until exactly week sixteen. One can only hope I am in a similar situation.
I don't have a bump pic for you yet because there's no bump to show really. My stomach just looks like I had a big lunch. I've been told that B6 and half a Unisom could help with the sickness but I am just not a fan of sleeping pills. Has anyone tried that? My doctor suggested it but I'm not really feeling it. I'll just have to tough it up and wait it out like most women do. Did any of you have really bad sickness? How many of you made through pregnancy without ever being sick? Lucky heffas.
