Pregnancy Symptom #2: Morning sickness isn’t just for mornings anymore!

So I don’t have classic morning sickness (i.e. nausea, vomiting… in the morning), but in addition to the extreme exhaustion, I feel randomly terrible. Sometimes I wake up and feel sick, sometimes I eat and feel sick, and sometimes I just feel sick. I can eat the same thing two days in a row and one of those times I will feel terrible afterwards and the other time will feel fine. I haven’t thrown up yet (*knocks on wood*), but I’ve felt like it a few times. With the non-morning sickness I also get dizzy really easily and sometimes queasy at smells. I feel simultaneously hungry and nauseous. Nothing really sounds particularly terrible but nothing also sounds particularly wonderful.

So, today I’ve had the worst nausea ALL DAY. I’ve eaten because supposedly that is better than not eating. I feel miserable. I feel like I’ve been on the verge of throwing up most of the day. My sweet sweet husband left the house at 8pm to go find me Diet Ginger Ale and Emetrol to hopefully help. I haven’t told anyone at work (1, because our families don’t know yet and 2, it’s none of their business) so I can’t run around wearing seasickness bands because I’m pretty sure that would be noticeable. So we’ll try ginger ale and EmetrolĀ and hope that helps.
