Morning Sickness Not Reserved To Morning

I really do not want this to become the blog about pregnancy.

It might, though.

I mean since I'm pregnant and all.

And it seems to be the only thing I can really think about lately.

Morning Sickness.

Let's talk about this a little.
Ick. Ick. Ick.

Did you have it? 

I've had it with all three of my pregnancies. My first was really just in the morning. I had certain food aversions but mostly, if I ate in the morning, I could handle the rest of the day.

My second pregnancy proved to be a little different with morning sickness not being reserved to just the morning.  I was sick the whole day but especially at night.   I had many food aversions but could not stop eating the foods I loved.

This one is worse than both but similar to the second  in that it lasts all day, which leads me to think it's another boy.   I wonder if the sickness is worse because I am older and more tired.  Maybe.

I cannot even touch or eat chicken right now.  I crave cheeseburgers like there is not going to be any left tomorrow.   Potatoes in any form are a hit.  Raspberry and lime sorbets make me happy.    Salads.  I really could just eat pounds of salad.

Oh, it's lunchtime, isn't it?

I wanted to share something that has provided a TON of relief for me, though.  You know, just in case you are feeling the same way or know someone who is.

My friend gave me one.  I am telling you about it because if I had known about this and how much better it would make me feel, I would have paid the $135 that it costs.    It is designed for motion sickness but really helps with morning sickness, too.    Life Saver.  That's all I have to say 'bout that.

Okay, I'm off.  Remember, it's lunchtime!

I was cleaning the attic the other day when I found a shoebox with Izzys baby stuff in it. Funny how that happens w/ #4,everyone else's is in the cedar chest,hers somehow is not..oh well. it is now. anyway I flipped thru her pg journal & I was sick off/on all day too. and chicken was completely off limits, but could have eaten an entire cow every day.seems it lasted the entire time but waxed and waned. still I loved being pg. its just so cool.enjoy this season.

I didn't have any morning sickness with Boo (don't hate me...) but did have a chinese food was not pleasant for anyone especially since we lived down the street from a restaurant.

I hope it helps, and that you get past this part VERY fast!

I had horrific all day sickness and what worked for me was keeping packets of instant oatmeal around in my desk drawer as well as bags of cut up lemons.

I never went to a meeting without my lemon bag.

Yeah, real professional, but better than throwing up all over the conference room table.

I was sick with both of mine for the entire first trimester. Yuck! I kept telling myself that being sick meant you had a very healthy pregnancy. Hang in there!! Congrats by the way...I don't know how I missed the announcement!

Sorry, I had very little morning sickness with all three of mine. With #1 I had a little but it ended quickly.
But I totally craved Taco Bell Nachos!

I was so sick when I was pregnant with my twins, so when my next baby came along, and it was just one, I was sure I'd stay feeling good........ha ha ha, I wound up in the hospital with dehydration.......ugh!
Keep drinking and eating what you can...........this too shall pass...........I hope soon.

Try smelling citrus. It worked wonders for me. I would cut an orange and instant relief.

I did not experience morning sickness with the girls. With Griffin, it was a different story. I wasn't sure if it was because he was a boy, or if it was because I was older. Whatever the reason, it sucked!
Congrats, again!!
