All Out of Clever

Not that I'm a comic genius, but I haven't much to say. I've bandied about a few nice post ideas, but can't seem to get committed. First trimester illness (FTI) has set in and is in full force. I am nauseous all the time, have no appetite, I am tired in the day and can't sleep at night, and my ocular migraines are back.

Okay, was that whining? Opps, sorry.

Obviously I am thrilled at this pregnancy. Terrified of complications, but thrilled nonetheless. But I refuse to fall into that trap that I'm not allowed to be miserable if my body decrees so. And it is. So I am.

Today was actually a bit better. But I guess I'm realizing that with the whole 2 babies thing, that means double whammy of FTI. I know others have had a much worse time, so I really can't be too grumpy. And I could handle it better if it weren't for the headaches and dizziness. I am hoping that with weaning the progesterone that the migraine stuff will abate.

And so, I'm off to attempt to cook something for dinner that will perhaps appeal to my roiling belly. But probably not.

I hope you are feeling better soon.

Is your next phase STG (second trimester glow)?

Hope you feel better soon my dear!

In my first pregnancy, first trimester, it was cheese & crackers, pizza, cheese enchiladas and pretzels. I wanted only salt, fat & carbs.

Pretty much the whole second pregnancy, I wanted sweets - sugar, fat & carbs.

I hope the weeks pass quickly in the best possible way.

I wish you better and I hope you find something you can stomach.

We're right in the middle of the sick together. Like you, I don't think we should have to grin and bear the not-so-fun parts of pregnancy, simply because we had a hard time getting here.

I hope we are both feeling better soon.

I am getting queasy flashbacks just reading your post. Ugh, poor you. And you have every right to complain. FTI blows and you have to let off the steam somewhere!

When I was sick, I often wondered how women with small children to care for did the whole first tri sick thing. My hat is off to you sister!

(Excuse the assvice, but ginger always helped me -- they make ginger altoids and I always carreid them in my purse.)

But, um, Yay on feeling like crap! Cuz it means great things!

I really hope you start feeling better soon...the exhaustion is what is getting me! These two are sucking the life out of me! And I love it!

Sorry about the FTI, but fwiw I freak out when I feel completely well.

B6 will help a lot, and take some unisom at night. It will help with the mornings.

Don't suffer, do what you need to do.
