Morning Sickness, Nesting, and a great Husband

Tonight my husband made dinner for me, after basically spending three days in bed with this nasty little thing they call morning sickness (it had to have been a man who made up that name-it really doesn’t go away in the afternoon or evening or even in the middle of the night).

Will is really trying to be understanding and is doing his best to pick up the slack. For the last month or so he has been the main person to take out the dogs and I know he is getting sick of it, but I am so tired and sick lately that dragging two dogs outside to pee and poop does not seem like my idea of a good time (I know wait until I have that plus a screaming baby right-ha ha).

I did finally have some energy to vacuum and clean up the kitchen yesterday. I went through a huge pile of mail and tried my best to clean up this little place we call home.

I got some B6 today and will start taking that tomorrow hoping it will help with the morning sickness, but otherwise its time to fill the prescription for Zofran. As much as I don’t want to take any medication during the first trimester I might have to suck it up and do it for the sake of making it through the next 6 weeks.

Other than that, we got a video camera for the computer so we can Skype with our family. The holiday season is quickly coming upon us, my Mom and her boyfriend Art get here in two weeks for Thanksgiving, they will be here for a week. I have finished about half of the photo books that we are making for parents and grandparents with wedding photos. So far they are a big hit!

Okay have to get back to work now-the quarter is over tomorrow and I have tons of grading to do.

    The only thing that remotely helped with morning sickness for me-and I mean remote because it just made it the teensiest bit better-was eating something before I stood up at all in the morning, I would just keep some snacks on my nightstand and have one before anything else. Make sure you stay hydrated, the more hungry/thirsty you get, the more nauseous you will feel it seems. Hang in there, it will pass.

    Wait until the craving sets in. Everyone has different cravings – mine was banana nut ice cream, your Auntie Sherri wanted Mexican food every day and I think your mother wanted peas.
