Full disclosure: I am not a fan of reading other people’s pregnancy journals nor birth stories. Therefore, I write these entries without any expectation that anyone wants to read them: they’re for me! That being said, I am the only non-Doula in my quartet of best buddies, so I know firsthand that there are many women who LOVE to hear about pregnancy and birth! If you are among them, then welcome, read on! If not, go check out a cloth diaper review or enter a giveaway.
Since starting Diclectin, my nausea and vomiting has improved significantly. The puking has only returned the few times I’ve forgotten to take a dose. I have my first ObGyn appointment tomorrow, so I presume she’ll continue the prescription I got while in BC. Please tell me I’m not the only pregnant person who pees a bit when puking? I know, TMI… but I can’t help it! Fact: Öko Creations liners have saved many a pair of pants.
I keep telling Cub that there’s a baby in my belly. He just kind of nods at me, but sometimes when he hops on my lap for a cuddle, he pulls up my shirt and starts squishing his ear against my belly. It’s pretty darn cute.
The whole “I’m starving but I don’t feel like eating anything” has thankfully faded, along with my aversion to sweets! The aversion to sweets went away right on time for Christmas! Best. Gift. Ever.
I finally received my Preggie Pops (affiliate link) from Well (it takes a lot longer for Well orders to reach BC than QC) and I confess, I like ’em. Would they stop me puking if I wasn’t on Diclectin? Probably not. However, after I eat if I feel a bit queasy, I really like sucking on one of these yummy drops. Being a bit picky about hard candy flavours, I’m happy to confirm that I like them all.
So, that’s the good news. The bad news? What is with all the PEE?!
Last night it took me over an hour to fall asleep, and during that time I got up to pee no less than six times. I absolutely cannot fall asleep if I feel the slightest inclination to pee, so I have to get up every time.
Anyone else out there joining me on the first trimester adventure?
