A Life Less Ordinary

Morning Sickness?

Symptoms so far:

  • sore breasts
  • light, intermittent cramping
  • frequent urination (esp. at night)
  • pimples! (wonderful =/ )
  • constant heartburn
  • nausea (see below)
  • EXHAUSTED!  More than I knew was possible.
  • HUNGRY!  I can’t go more than 3 hours without eating something or I feel faint.
So Friday when I first felt nausea I wondered if it was psychosomatic (i.e. I was wanting to feel it).  I was hungry at the time and kind of broke out in a cold sweat during a staff meeting.  Since then it has happened every day usually when I need to eat something.  The other day I woke up at 4AM starving and I literally couldn’t go back to sleep I had to eat!  The nausea isn’t that bad – I don’t feel like I’m on the verge of vomiting, just queasy – so if this is as bad as MS ever gets then I’m pretty lucky.  I guess in general I kinda feel like I’m coming down with the flu:  tired, cold sweats, nausea.
Tomorrow is D-day for us.  Although I’ve been getting + HPT’s for a full week tomorrow we will hear the news from the professionals!  I pray our numbers are good (around 100) and double like they should (every 72 hours).  It will be a great blessing to be out of “IF, high-risk” land and move to good old pregnant ladyhood.

  1. I hope to see a good update from you tomorrow, and I’m sure I will!

    BTW – the cold sweats are probably caused by your blood sugar bottoming out, which will happen a lot faster especially through the m/s phase. Try snacking on something as soon as you feel the twinge of nausea, even if it’s just a cookie or a piece of fruit, and even if you’re eating a small snack every 1-2 hours. That’s usually a sure-fire way to stave off m/s in this early phase when it can be triggered by hunger.

    I can’t wait to see your beta results tomorrow!
