It felt like it really intensified this week, I struggled to cope with the constant waves of nausea – It felt like the beginning of the end just like last time. I wasn’t looking forward at all to the next few weeks and had already started to fear the worst with the many weeks stretching out in front of me that it would be just like last time. But it doesn’t seem to be the case, instead this time it’s coming in peaks and then stops for a few days. It’s a lot easier to cope when you are able to eat and drink in between!
I haven’t had much time or energy to write and I’m sure it will just be the same next week. I have started to look for a nursery place for Ariella just so she can be covered a little if I continue to feel like this.
Top moment the week? – I don’t think I have one, this week the sickness went crazy.
Stretch marks – Too early
Sleep – I feel like I could sleep forever if only I didn’t have to get up. I spend nap time asleep and as soon as Ariella is in bed, sometimes before once Jamie is home from work I head off to bed myself. Exhausted is not the word, there should be another word for the next step up from that.
Maternity Clothes – Not in them yet but I’m struggling to fit into my clothes from the sheer bloat.
Food Cravings – I don’t even want to think about it.
What do you miss – I miss not throwing up
Movement – Nope!
Symptoms – This week the nausea and vomiting came, it did ease off slightly or maybe I’m just coping better than I did last time. It feels different this time though, less intense apart from a few days here and there where it’s unbearable I think eating constantly is really helping.
What are you looking forward to – Feeling better ASAP.
