First Hints of Nausea

June 18, 2009 at 8:38 pm 2 comments

Just an update to say that I’m still around, still counting the days to the u/s, and checking off each day, since each day is a milestone.

The great news is that I took my blood pressure reading yesterday and for the first time in forever, the first reading shown the number to be in the 120s, which is awesome. On a subsequent reading I was 117 over 70. I am just hoping that I can keep my blood pressure under control as this has been one of my big worry points. I’ve also been relatively good about exercising, and until today – eating. Today I’m afraid I ate some inexcusable amounts. (I’m trying to avoid a first trimester gain, and this is definitely NOT the way to do it).

But I did because…. that first subtle feeling of nausea has started to set in. The only way I could combat it the last time was through eating. This time of course I am desperately hoping I find some other means to control it. Its truly a horrid feeling. By the time my last pregnancy was over, certain Xmas carols officially made me nautious – because they were played right around the time my nausea was at its worst and I associated them with nausea ever since. I am really hoping I might get off easier this time. Especially since I had the worst of both worlds – bad nausea AND weight gain (most women have the consolation price of maintaining or even losing weight in that period of time). I was eating all the time because it was the only time I would not be nauteous. I gained 8lbs that first trimester.

So I’m gonna breathe deep….. and tomorrow, try some different tactics. Lets hope I don’t come back to report that I failed miserable and ate myself silly.

On the other hand… the u/s is a week away from tomorrow. I will officially be able to begin my week count down. I really cannot wait to see that heart beat and cross that milestone.

    I only really get it when my stomach is empty. I guess that’s normal?
