This is what happens when you get all cocky. Just a couple of weeks ago I said to Chris, I am still feeling so completely great, I wonder if the morning sickness will
just completely pass me by? Then the nausea set in. I said to a friend, really not sure what all the fuss is about, I am nauseous and queasy a lot of the time, but nothing I can’t manage. No problem, I can get through this first trimester no hassles.
Then this weekend (8 weeks) the nausea took on a new dimension, and my aversion to certain foods grew to include almost all foods. And then yesterday the nausea developed to full blown vomiting. I will spare you the details, because otherwise I will be chucking up on my laptop, but it’s not pretty. I am apologising to all the people who really struggle with morning sickness who I quietly thought were just making to a big deal of it, just milking the being pregnant card (which I
totally get). It’s not true, morning sickness really sucks, but not as much as infertility.
Where in the earlier weeks I was saying to myself every time I read those stupid comments about how the worse your morning sickness is the healthier your babies are that that is an old wives tale. Now I am hoping it’s all true and all this suffering is because my babies are doing beautifully.
Things have been rather busy the last few days, but just three more days to get through and then on holiday for 11 days. We still haven’t booked anything and to be
honest with me feeling so rough there doesn’t seem much point spending money on going away so I can lie in a room somewhere and become friendly with a strange toilet, so we may decide to just stay at home and take it very easy. Maybe make a start on some exciting baby shopping? Maybe carry on with the exciting house hunting. I would normally say go out for breakfast, enjoy long lazy lunches, but food just doesn’t do it for me at the moment, so not much appeal in that!
Anyway scan on Thursday, my last scan with my beloved Dr S, oh I know I will cry saying goodbye to him, even though it is for happy reasons.
