Morning sickness..

Posted on: February 28, 2011

When I first found out I was pregnant, I was hoping to be one of those exceptions that didn’t get the morning sickness.  My mother would often tell me that she never really experienced the nausea of morning sickness with her two pregnancies..

I, unfortunately, am not so lucky.

Even when I’m not pregnant, one of my monthly symptoms was always a slight nauseous feeling.  So I guess that this nausea would be around full force being pregnant.

Thank God I haven’t been throwing up… it’s just nausea.. and sometimes I feel like that’s so much worse than throwing up.  Sometimes I feel that maybe if I just threw up, I’d feel better..

The only thing that totally allievates my nausea is to have a full stomach.. so that means that I literally have to graze all day.. I have to eat about every two hours..

Trust me.. I’m so sick of eating.. it’s literally become a chore..

The thing is.. I can’t just eat those quick remedy foods that are posted on all the pregnancy sites.. saltine crackers make me even more nauseous.. and grazing on dry starchy foods just adds a very uneasy lump in my stomach..

The only things that remedy my nausea are nice warm, homecooked foods.. like.. really meals.. this snack stuff totally doesn’t cut it.. it has to be a meal every two hours.. or like a nice warm hearty soup.. or chicken strips and fries..

I feel like I’m gaining way too much weight, way too fast because of it.. but what can I do.. I feel lousy if I don’t..

Which introduces another issue of trying to eat hearty every two hours while at work.. I can’t.. so I obviously feel this lingering nausea while at work.. I can’t go into a kitchen a whip myself some meal while working.. so I try the crackers.. I try the snacks.. that’s the best I can do while at work..

I’m going to try ginger snaps at work.. I’m hoping the ginger will calm my nausea down and not require me to eat actual meals.. and can hold me off til lunch time..

What kind of foods or drinks did you do to remedy your morning sickness??

I feel your pain. I have experienced “morning” sickness (really it’s all day sickness) for the past week and a half. I am at seven weeks and hoping this ends soon… My body’s being hypocritical right now. It says I need to eat but every time I do, I throw it back up!

Anyway, the best thing I have found so far is gingerale and saltines. A friend of mine who is also pregnant swears by lemon drops in the morning so I’ll have to try that as well. Unfortunately the only surefire way to alleviate it is to throw up but then it comes right back =/

Feel better soon.

Thanks for the comment.

I hope you’re morning sickness is getting better.. I’m 10 weeks now and mine has decreased a lot.. it’s tolerable now and sometimes its not there anymore.
