I promise that this blog won’t be all-pregancy, all-the-time. But I’m feeling icky so I need to share. I thought “morning sickness” was supposed to be a first trimester thing?!? Ok, so I had some nausea in the first trimester. I thought it was novel, because with Jakob I had a pretty symptom-free pregnancy. So I was like, ok, this is what people feel. I’m queasy, and feel like I’m living on a boat, but it’s livable. I didn’t need meds, so I was ok. It only started at 6 weeks, and was pretty much gone by 10 or 11 weeks.
But now? Holy cow! The DAY I hit 14 weeks (second trimester) I started throwing up. That’s crazy! Friday night- lost supper. Saturday night- lost supper. And ever since yesterday, I have thrown up everything I’ve put in my mouth. Every meal, every snack, even a cup of coffee or 5 spoonfuls of soup. The craziest part is that I’m not nauseous at all! I don’t feel sick, or queasy. Sure, I feel shakey afterwards, and weak, because I’m empty. But I feel like nothing is triggering it, other than the fact that I’m eating. I’m actually getting kinda scared to keep eating, because I don’t want to keep throwing up. (Don’t worry, I know I need to eat for the baby, and I will. It’s just becoming an all-consuming thing now, this whole “am I going to throw up” thing).
In other news, I’m still working on the knitting for Veronik, so I can’t show you my current project, but I have some stuff I will be able to share, so when I’m home and have access to my camera, I’ll try to post some photos.
