I'm currently pregnant with no. 2. The first time round I had bad morning sickness from 8 weeks till 20 weeks. I lost stack's of weight (that was the only good thing about it).
I had my finger's crossed that I'd be spared the morning sickness this time round but no luck. It started 2 days ago.
The first time round I tried everything anyone suggested from eating dry biscuits as soon as I woke up, ginger, Vitamin B12 and even had anti nausea tablets from doctor. They were no help and even made me very aggitated.
This time I'm hoping that having a toddler keep me busy will help take my mind off feeling sick. Some people say that morning sickness is all in your mind. I don't really beleive that but am willing to give it a try.
I'm also snacking often. As soon as I feel any twinge of hunger I eat something because otherwise I start to feel really sick, grab a bucket kind of sick. I don't feel like eating but I make myself do it anyway.
I keep trying to remind myself that it doesn't last forever and that there are some women out there that are sick every single day of their pregnancy, that would be worse.
Also, who's bright idea was it to call it "Morning Sickness"? For me it's all day and mostly in the evenings.
Oh no, there are the hunger pangs again. Better go eat something quickly.
Good luck to all
PS, Goulburn Valley fruit snack cup things are great for a quick snack. They are healthy and fast.
