I've tried and they seem to help nibbling on Saltines pretty much constantly.
I've discovered that when I get hungry, if I don't eat right away the nausea kicks in and then it becomes almost impossible for me to eat.
I only found this out yesterday when my sil said she felt this way with her third. This was after a full day and 1/2 of barely eating and a couple times of dry heaving. (I know gross.)
So now I have a package in the car, on next to my bed, one on the end table next to the couch and one in the kitchen. I am constantly chewing away at them and so far so good. SIL also said sour worked well for her too but killed her stomach.
Well, I wanted to wait until I met with my dr. today before I posted all the u/s info because I was paranoid that something would be wrong. (No specific reason, just nervous for some reason.)
Anyway, last Friday, 3/4 we went for the first sonogram. They did an outer ultrasound first, (and had to pee like a maniac). Couldn't see the baby from there, she just checked my ovaries, etc. and everything was fine. Then she let me go pee, ahhhh relief! I come back they proceed to do the internal one.
She and hubby can see the screen but I can't. I'm getting aggravated and keep trying to turn to see the monitor. She was nice about it but kept telling me to relax and lay down. Finally she tells me not to move at all. All of a sudden I hear Swoosh, Swoosh, Swoosh. Instinctively I got up to look at screen and she's like stay still or I might lose it! I lay back, she finally turned the screen so I could see it and then showed me the little heart beating away as we were listening to it! I was absolutely amazed and surprised b/c I didn't think we'd be able to hear it that early! She told me baby was measuring at 6 wks. 4 days, which would make my due date 10/24. I got nervous b/c technically due date should be 10/19. She told me it wasn't exact and it could be plus or minus 4 days. So we got our little pics and we've showed them to EVERYONE! So exciting.
Okay, ff to today. Had dr. appt. at 2, this was the first major one and he did thorough check, pap, sat me down and talked to me for about 10 minutes to discuss everything. Said bp is low, which is normal for me and great for the pregnancy. Also, said cervix was perfect and closed, and said uterus was measuring at about 8 weeks. So he said we are going to go back with the original due date of 10/19 and that baby size is fine! He then sent me for bloodwork and didn't realize they were gonna take 7 VIALS! Oh well, went quick!
So everything is wonderful! I go back in 3 weeks for another check up, a genetic ultrasound and a consult with the geneticist (sp?). He said this is normal but b/c my nephew is downs they want me to do it sooner than later but not to worry about it, which I'm not.
Sorry for the novel, I've never been able to tell quick stories!
First, I didn't think I was because I had no symptoms, other than sore boobs. Then I got m/s, couldn't stand the smell of almost anything. Had u/s, saw baby, saw heartbeat, heard heartbeat. Believed everything was okay. Now I have almost no symptoms, m/s is gone, boobs are a little tender but not like they were and even though I went to the doc YESTERDAY and he said everything was going GREAT I am convinced today that something is wrong because I'm not feeling anything. I haven't had any spotting or anything that I would associate with a problem other than my psycho thoughts going through my head.
Aren't you glad you're not alone in this? I shudder of the thought of pregnancy before the internet, LOL.
I had heard that during pregnancy your sense of smell significantly intensifies. I never thought it would happen to me because I suffer from extreme year round allergies and even on all the meds I WAS on I almost never had a clear nose day. Now since I've become pregnant I've had to stop taking my Singulair, Zyrtec & Rhinocort. They say I can take any saline nose sprays which I have, but they don't do much and Benadryl which I won't because that will just make me really sleepy. So the past couple weeks I've been snuffling along, but it's fine.
Today, hubby opens the fridge and this smell just comes over me. (Smelled it last night but we were rushing to go to dinner with friends and had no time to dwell on it.) Anyway, I keep asking him, "Don't you smell that?" He is insistent that nothing in there smells. To me the odor is overpowering!
He just went to store and I literally cleaned out the entire fridge. 3 bags of stuff, that I'm sure are mostly perfectly fine but I can't even fathom the thought of those smells! He's gonna kill me when I get home!
Now I need to go grocery shopping! Arggg...the crazy things that come with pregnancy!
Anyone else experiencing this? Okay, I'm off to do the freezer now!
1. The other day I was standing in front of the mirror brushing my teeth and making a mental list of what I needed to do that day. I thought of #1, thought of #2, then completely forgot what #1 was. I've started to write things down now.
2. I sell alot of books online and this is really bad but totally forgot about an order I was supposed to mail out on Friday, then forgot about it on Saturday. It is now sitting in front of my door where I won't be able to miss it!
3. The regular walk into a room and have no idea what I'm doing there!
For the last 2 years my hubby and I have hosted St. Patrick's Day dinner for our families, due to the fact that it's the only "holiday" we've been allowed to have. My mil used to have it but for the past 2 years she's been living without a kitchen, so that's how we acquired this holiday.
A couple weeks ago she told me that she was having St. Pat's this year. I told her no way, it's become my holiday and that's that. She started telling me the only reason why I had it was because she didn't have a kitchen, and now she does so she wants it back. I told her fine but that hubby and I would not be attending, as we would be having our own dinner at our own home. She thought I was kidding and laughed it off. I meant it though.
Anyway, shortly after we were having dinner at mil's and one of my sils asked me what she should bring for St. Pats. MIL was sitting there and I said, "Well ask her, because apparantly she's taking it over again!" She became all defensive and started going into how I could have it and she had just been kidding, blah blah blah.... (I know she wasn't.)
So, now I'm back to having it again. Of course all of this transpired before I started to feel crappy, m/s, etc. Now obviously if I change my mind, mil will look at it as if I've given in to her, which I definately won't. AND...on top of all this we're moving in 16 days and I've already started boxing things up so the place looks like hell.
Oh well, I know I'm going to have it. Went to the supermarket today and bought all the stuff. I am beside myself though at the thought of this meat and cabbage all cooking and smelling up my home!
Okay...thanks for letting me vent. I just needed to do that!
You're not alone. Last week I literally had a headache for 5 days straight. Dr. told me I could take Tylenol but I still didn't want to and eventually gave in when I couldn't take it anymore. I've had a couple of them here and there since but I try to wait them out before I take anything and try some soothing Honey Vanilla Chamomille Tea (Celestial Seasonings). This seems to help a bit. I also got one of those eye masks that you soak in hot water and wrap around your head. Even though I look like Batman it helps!
