I have been hit by the morning sickness bug and it's not a friendly little bug by any means. I have skipped working out Monday and Tuesday now. I started feeling queasy on Friday but I pushed through and worked out over the weekend anyway thinking it would help me feel better but the last two days it wasn't happening. When I was pregnant with Mollie I remember being extremely exhausted the first trimester and I would take a two hour nap almost every day but I wasn't sick at all. This pregnancy I have experienced the same fatigue but on top of it I have been nauseous almost the entire day for the past five days. My sister says that means it's a boy because she wasn't sick at all with her baby girl and then when she was pregnant with her baby boy she was miserable. Only time will tell! :)
So I thought it would be fun to do a little post on some remedies I have found while searching online for something to help make me feel better.
1. I don't know anything about these but I had to share it just because I thought the name sounded really fun! Preggie Pop Drops!
2. Beans? Okay, I love beans so I'm willing to try this. I found this info from The Marathon Mom blog.
Ginger Ale - Whenever I have an upset stomach I like carbonated drinks. Seems strange but I'm going with what works for me!
Crackers are always a safe bet and a good thing to keep on hand. I notice when my stomach is empty my nausea gets worse.
So I read that sucking on lemons helps but I'm not sure I'm up for that. I like them in my water, we'll start there!
Last but not least...SLEEP! Bedtime is my favorite time of day right now. I need more rest than ever right now. I will take this advice and hit the sheets right now. Goodnight! :)
