So I am only 6 weeks along and have been lucky enough to be dealing with all day “morning” sickness since 5 weeks along… and I am about to break already. I have already had to miss a day of work and gone into work a lot late than usual on the other days. It is getting ridiculous. Thankfully (?), I am good at stopping myself from fully throwing up (the joy of mouth throw up) so there is some good. Its literally from the moment I wake up until the moment I fall asleep with some days getting a two hour break around lunch time. Even when I get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I feel like I am going to hurl!
I have tried the following to help and so far nothing seems to work great:
– Eating small amounts often
– Eating crackers/only things that appeal
– Drinking a TON of water
– Carbonated things
– Resting and taking it easy
– Eating protein when I can
– Avoiding strong smells
– I would try the mint thing but I despise mint (even my toothpaste isn’t mint)
I have my hour long prenatal appt on Monday with my doctor and plan to talk to them about my options. Until then, any other ideas? Might have to bite the bullet and take some meds for it, otherwise it could be a very long first trimester (esp since from what I have read morning sickness usually gets worst around 7-8 weeks!!). Thanks!
