As I mentioned in my last post, my nausea has been coming and going lately. Supposedly it’s normal for symptoms to come and go, but that doesn’t stop me from worrying when they go. It’s not that I enjoy the nausea, but I figure as long as I’m nauseated, I’m probably still pregnant, right? I have this terrifying fear of losing the pregnancy and am always looking for some sort of reassurance that I haven’t.
Well, yesterday, not only did my nausea almost disappear entirely, but I actually got a pretty good night’s sleep last night. I only got up to pee once, and I didn’t get hungry in the middle of the night like I have been lately. While it was very nice to get some sleep, I woke up this morning feeling a little bit concerned, especially since I didn’t feel queasy at all. I’m ALWAYS queasy first thing in the morning. I even felt like I could probably feed the dogs myself without gagging, but didn’t want to test the theory. So I got in the shower, still feeling a little concerned, until… suddenly not only was my nausea back, but it was back with a vengeance and I actually got sick for the first time. Good thing I hadn’t eaten anything yet and had nothing to throw up. Now, I’m sitting at my desk staring down cup of coffee and I just can’t make myself drink it. My stomach is doing all kinds of churns and flip flops.
Hey, Baby. It’s nice to know you’re still in there.
