What I’ve learned so far…

Morning sickness…that stuff is no joke. At both my appointment with my family doctor and my appointment with my obgyn, I felt fine. Literally less than 24 hours after my obgyn appointment…BAM. Sick as a dog.
And ever since then? Sick, sick, sick!!! I’ve been feeling TERRIBLE!! All day long nausea. No throwing up…but that’s because I HATE throwing up. I’d rather feel sick than throw up. I’ve been gagging a lot too. It’s miserable.

I can’t stand any meat. I’ve been eating a lot of scrambled eggs and peanut butter and jelly. Pizza and quesadilla are also settling ok. And fruit is still good. But I’m getting really tired of eating the same things over and over and over.

At work, I’m miserable. At home, I’m miserable. In the morning, I’m miserable. In the evening, I’m miserable.

I’ve tried eating saltines right when I wake up.

I’ve tried ginger gum.

I’ve tried vitamin B6.

I’ve tried ginger ale.

I eventually broke down and called my doctor. She prescribed me some nausea medicine. Even it doesn’t help that much!

So I’m just miserable. I can’t even THINK about food. (This from a girl who loves to cook, loves to eat, and watches tons of Food Network and Cooking Channel.)

I can’t open my fridge – the smells make me sick.

I can’t go to the grocery store – too much nasty looking food and too much to smell!

I can’t even look at Pinterest because if I scroll by a picture of food, I gag!

Y’all – this is horrible. I’m praying it will only last the first trimester…

And on the bright side, at least I know that baby is still in there! Even if he is making me sick. 🙂

P.S. Please don’t give me suggestions – trust me, I’ve tried almost everything. Just commiserate with me. 🙁

  1. That's awful. I remember when I was prego w/ my girly, I was miserable for about 16 weeks. I was nauseous all the time and threw up every single day. And nothing worked either. My diet consisted of things that would be the easiest to vomit. Lovely, I know.
    I hope this passes for you soon, and that you get to enjoy this pregnancy 🙂
