Sick and then not so sick

Monday, August 20, 2012

This past weekend was pretty much a waste for me.  I spent most of it on the couch feeling nauseous and tired.  I would get up to do some stuff and then would feel bad so I would lay down again.  I took 2, 3 hour naps.  As useless as I was, I was secretly rejoicing for the fact that I have some sign that this might actually work this time that I have never had before.

On Saturday I went to the grocery store and almost threw up in the middle of the produce section just thinking about which veggies to buy and how to cook them.  When I woke up yesterday I had to suck on a Preggie Pop Drop so I wouldn't throw up before I had a chance to force my breakfast down.

This morning I woke up and I felt pretty much fine and that scared the crap out of me.  I did my hair and makeup with no issue (other than my hair falling out).  I ironed and got dressed with no issue.  Sheesh, yesterday I could barely get out of bed at 8:30 AM and today I was totally fine at 4:30 AM.  I fed my cats and dog, packed my lunch, and then came the decision of what to eat for breakfast.  Nothing sounded good, so I made some toast w/ peanut butter and cut up a peach.  I grabbed a coconut water and then headed to the TV to watch the news.  I could barely stomach the toast and choked it down slowly, not even finishing the entire piece.  I was able to eat the peach with no real issue.

Then I had lunch, which was leftovers that I had trouble eating yesterday and I ate that with no issue.  WTF?

Now I am supposed to be working and I don't feel sick at all.  I just feel like I could nap for a few hours.  I am back to my worried self.  Is this normal?  I have no clue if morning sickness is supposed to come and go or if once you get sick are you supposed to stay sick and possibly just keep getting sicker?  Do symptoms and their severity usually fluctuate?  I wish I just knew everything would be ok on Friday and then I could stop worrying.  Ugh.

So my symptoms right now at 6 weeks 2 days are just fatigue, intermittent nausea, of and on cramps, slight constipation, slightly sore boobs, and lots of white CM (TMI, sorry).  I am documenting all of this so that (hopefully) I can look back on this post in 3-4 months and laugh at how silly I was being.  Right now, all I feel is worried though.  :(

  1. Totally normal. I'd have days where I felt awful and then totally fine the next day. Don't worry, it will be back :-)

    1. Ok good. I hope that you are right. All I do these days is worry!

  2. I would say yes, yes and yes, but I can relate to your fears. I hope that the ultrasound on Friday reveals amazing images of your tiny babe.

  3. You are about 1 week ahead of me and I have the same symptoms :)

  4. I'm also hoping you get to laugh at all these posts years from now, with your kiddo playing nearby :)

  5. I know it's scary when symptoms come and go, but they often did for me. I would have a few bad days, and then one or two okay days, and then I'd be back to feeling crummy for a few days. I think that's totally normal, but I do understand how it's impossible not to worry. Thinking of you!

  6. My morning sickness usually came on later... and it's been different with each pregnancy. With my daughter, it was off and on (threw up 13 times the first trimester and always felt better after); with the 2nd pregnancy, it was worse and I didn't feel better after. I don't remember when that started. With the third, I was just tired till 10 weeks, then threw up every day (sometimes more than once) from 10-13 weeks. Hope all goes well with the appointment. Keep us posted.

  7. hi from ICLW...I hope you are feeling better!!!

  8. Another from Sunshine that won't post for some reason!

    It's your time, I don't know what you are supposed to be feeling or not feeling but... It's your time!! I think you are doing great and I can't even imagine how much strength it is taking to manage the fear.
