I Want to Knit
Monday, July 21, 2008
I promise that this blog won't be all-pregancy, all-the-time. But I'm feeling icky so I need to share. I thought "morning sickness" was supposed to be a first trimester thing?!? Ok, so I had some nausea in the first trimester. I thought it was novel, because with Jakob I had a pretty symptom-free pregnancy. So I was like, ok, this is what people feel. I'm queasy, and feel like I'm living on a boat, but it's livable. I didn't need meds, so I was ok. It only started at 6 weeks, and was pretty much gone by 10 or 11 weeks.

But now? Holy cow! The DAY I hit 14 weeks (second trimester) I started throwing up. That's crazy! Friday night- lost supper. Saturday night- lost supper. And ever since yesterday, I have thrown up everything I've put in my mouth. Every meal, every snack, even a cup of coffee or 5 spoonfuls of soup. The craziest part is that I'm not nauseous at all! I don't feel sick, or queasy. Sure, I feel shakey afterwards, and weak, because I'm empty. But I feel like nothing is triggering it, other than the fact that I'm eating. I'm actually getting kinda scared to keep eating, because I don't want to keep throwing up. (Don't worry, I know I need to eat for the baby, and I will. It's just becoming an all-consuming thing now, this whole "am I going to throw up" thing).


In other news, I'm still working on the knitting for Veronik, so I can't show you my current project, but I have some stuff I will be able to share, so when I'm home and have access to my camera, I'll try to post some photos.

    Hey - welcome to my life! I, of course am not pregnant - but was getting to the point, that stuff that was "safe" for me eat I would throw up! It sucks! I know how you feel! Hence why I am seeing a stomach specialist & had to do that milk test!!!
    Hope you feel better! HUGS!

    Oh Wow, that sounds awful - when's your next Dr app? It'd be interesting to hear if they have any helpful insights...
    Stay hydrated....
    hugs - Kate

    Wow, that sounds rough. You sure it's pregnancy related, and not something like gastro?

    I've never had a baby so I am not speaking from experience here but I can tell you that my mother had morning sickness with me right up until the day she delivered.

    Aren't you glad you asked?

    Man, I hope that doesn't happen to you.

    I agree with Tara that you should make sure it's actually pregnancy-related and not something like the flu.

    Yikes! I had over two months of that constant nauseas feeling, but I only threw up once randomly with no warning. I hope you get some relief soon! Maybe some medication will help?

    If it continues for more than a couple days (stomach flu/food poisoning), called Toronto's Sick Kids "MotherRisk" nausea hotline. They were awesome when my nausea got so bad last time I wished I would miscarry again. Lots of great tips and ideas.

    Sounds awful! I hope it's just a gastro thing and it's not going to stay with you.

    Sorry to hear you're not keeping down your food. That sucks. I never had it that bad with either pregnancy, so I have no advice to offer ;(
