I do believe, my friends, that my morning sickness may just be a thing of the past! I almost hate to say or type the words out loud for fear of jinxing myself but I am just so happy I want to sing! From week 7 to about week 15 I was sick morning, noon and night. If I wasn't throwing up (which I most often was), I was nauseaus and awful feeling! It was a double edged sword - if I was really hungry, I felt nauseaus. If I was too full, I felt nauseaus! If I was just right, I often felt nauseaus! Foods I once loved now sounded and felt awful in my belly. My doctor and I had a few conversations about it and he suggested I go on diclectin. I decided to wait a bit hoping it would pass so I left his office saying I would call his office if things got worse. Within a week things were worse and I was on diclectin. To be honest, diclectin really didn't help much! I did take it though because the days I didn't take it made me feel much much worse! But when I picked it up from the drug store and the pharmacist said "you're going to looovve this" I was so happy to hear that and then mega disappointed when I really didn't looove it! Anyway- last week I had one really really bad day! I was sick at work all day and as much as I tried to hide it I looked like crap and it was obvious I felt it too. The very next day I woke up and felt fine! I felt like I was holding my breath all day waiting for the nauseau to start but it didn't. Instead that day I felt insanely hungry all day long....I just couldn't get enough to eat. The next day came and I felt fine again, and the next day and the next day. Today I am on day 5 or 6 and still feeling good (although I had a little bit of nauseau a few times today but nothing like before. I am totally hoping this is it and I can go on to enjoy my pregnancy the way I did the first time.
With Forrest I did experience a little morning sickness but nothing like this. Not even close! I enjoyed every single moment of my pregnancy and I know this sounds cheesey and cliche but I really did feel like I glowed (not saying I looked like I glowed-I'm saying I felt like I glowed). I felt so great most of the time and especially once I hit the second trimester I has never felt so good. I am really hoping this is the case now that the yuckies are behind me!
AND...in WAAAYYY more exciting news: I do believe I have felt movement! I feel occasional flutters and it is simply the best! I missed that part of pregnancy the most! There is honestly nothing more amazing that feeling your child inside!!! Men really don't have a clue all the "awesomeness" they are missing out on! Yes - even labour and delivery! I mean I don't think I was ever more proud after that adventure! The body is truly incredible!
