Feeling better??

the past 2 days i havent been as sick feeling. Still pretty tired but not falling asleep during the day. I hope I dont jinx myself by posting this. :eek: And less gagging at smells.

We have been playing outside a lot! and i think the fresh air and sun makes me feel better too. Thank goodness we have good weather and it isnt the middle of winter.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. I seem to be getting worse. I can't wait for this to pass....it seems like it will never end. I'm kind of depressed over the fact that I can't bear to even think about food, much less cook it.

But on the bright side, yes, the weather was gorgeous today!! I think it's supposed to be nice all week. Smile

Glad you're feeling better! I'm only in my 6th week, so the nauseousness hasn't even hit me yet... just waiting for that fun to begin.
The weather has been great. I think we're really lucky with the timing of our pregnancies. My last one was pretty much the same - got pregnant in May and had him in February. The first trimester is during pretty mild months, and you're not SUPER duper pregnant during the heat of the summer, which is huge when you live in NC! I would be absolutely miserable to be 8+ months pregnant here in the summer!

ELF- I'm in NC too, but eastern part of the state. It is sooooooo hot and humid here starting June through September. I don't see how some pg ladies do it!

I'm glad you are feeling better Amanda, maybe you are through the horrible part and starting the feel good 2nd tri a little early!!!

I'm just starting to enter crappy 1st tri phase. I've been taking my zofran everyday though and that makes a huge difference in my energy and nausea/gagging.

I am glad you're feeling better - I am hoping for the same at 10 weeks! I too find that being outside in the sun helps. I finally broke down after a completely sleepless night of nausea and got a prescription for Diclectin from my doctor. Just took the first pill and pray it helps. I had to call in sick today and can't really do that too often.
I feel really bad about taking medication but I need to go to work and there is just no way. Waiting (im)patiently for the 2nd trimester...

I am glad some of us are feeling better! Personally, I am feeling worse. This weekend was really hard and probably my worst work day so far this week. I am very nauseous. I still don't throw up because I'm good at holding back, but I'm close :eek:

We have had grey and dull weather though which maybe isn't helping. My nutrition probably isn't helping either because I have not been able to cook in weeks!! I hate it, I miss cooking and my good meals so much. I don't want to look at frozen or fast food ever again Sad

I can tell I am VERY slowly feeling better. No more gagging, just nausea, also I found out I can drink Gatorade. So I am feeling more hydrated. I am still exhausted and sick, just a tad bit better.

I forced myself to go to work today (yesterday I called in sick) and I have found that focusing on something helps me to feel better. Yesterday when I laid on the couch and focused on how crappy I felt, I just wanted to die. Today, I focused on work and I was feeling much better. I still gagged a bit at the smell of everyone's lunches in the break room, but managed to get through the day.

And I found that a nice cup of hot tea this morning really settled my stomach. Smile

I feel better today and I hate it. It makes me worry like crazy. I hate the nausea and stuff, but I would rather have it every day until baby starts moving and I feel it. It gives me peace.

No better here for me... things are really ramping up! But I am only 7 weeks so that is to be expected. I hit a new low today and :puke2: in the grocery store restroom. Barely made it too. Ugh. So! Gross! And that is with the diclectin I am taking.

I am so jealous. I have been feeling super crappy. So now I am already back to sleeping sitting up from heartburn and nausea too but also getting no sleep from my ear infections. Sheesh. I did notice though the other night when at my parents and was outside talking to my brother and playing with the kids that I felt great. Then as soon as we were driving home it came back. I think focusing on something else and being active does help. The second trimester cannot get here fast enough!

I just read this and you know what, I actually was feeling awful until 9 wk and then I felt great the tenth wk and now feel awful again. No throwing up, but definately moody, crabby, achy, and beyond tired... I wonder what it is from wk to wk... :confused:

If I post here and get sick later I'll be mad - but as for today - I am feeling so much better! I do have a killer headache but that's a daily thing now that I have cut back on my caffeine intake. At least I'm not nauseous!

The 10 week fake-out is real! I have been feeling like vomit death for the past two weeks. Today, at exactly 10 weeks, I'm feeling INFINITELY BETTER!!! I mean, don't get me wrong, I barfed twice and I'm ready for bed at 5pm, but I don't feel like death. I essentially feel like I did at 6 weeks. Remember when we thought THAT was bad??? Haha. Anyway, I know it will come roaring back, thanks to your notes here, but I'm so so so happy to feel like I know one day it might actually end!!
