Nausea, Nausea Go Way!

So, I haven’t done much the past couple of months…literally. I go to work every day, but my mornings have been filled with nausea and my evenings have been a circus of feeling bloated, throwing up and laying in the bathtub wishing I could just feel “normal” again! Until last week, I hadn’t even been to the gym since August. Disgrace!

I'm 16 weeks! Doc says the nausea should be gone. It isn't totally! I feel more fat that pregnant...and this is what happened a few weeks ago:

I was at church talking with my counselors (since no Young Women even showed up for the lesson I had prepared!) and they were sharing pregnancy stories with me. All three of the women told me that they didn’t start showing until at least five months with their first child. Hmm…what’s my problem? One of them even said she never once wore maternity clothes – her entire pregnancy. I left church frustrated and depressed!

Oh – FYI – I never did post about this: I was called to be the Young Womens President in my L.D. S. ward a few months ago. Crazy thing is, as soon as the presidency was called it became evident that it was going to be short-lived. Why? Well, everyone but my second counselor is purchasing a home and moving out of the ward by the end mid-December, including ME!

Counting down the weeks was getting exhausting. I just wanted the nausea to go away! And now, I am happy to announce that I have not thrown up in a few days and I’ve begun to feel a little more energy and a little less nausea. For fear of jinxing myself I will just leave it at that and say:

Two weeks from today we find out the sex of the baby - so excited!

p.s. Belly pics? Maybe soon...

Ok, so the one who never wore maternity clothes makes me want to throw up and I'm not even pregnant. Good for her, I think? I'm sure you look adorable, even though you're not feeling it. And your so petite/tiny to start with, I'm sure that baby needs some serious room to grow.

Congrats on finding a house!

Really, not wearing maternity clothes? That is definitely not average. Plus, maternity clothes are FUN! Nausea will go away within 2 weeks. That's my prediction! Oh, and I think it's a boy!

It is cute and adorable, your cute stomach that is. You should post a least before you don't want to!

The women who don't have nausea and don't wear maternity clothes and wish they were pregnant all the time are definitely not normal! You will have a much happier pregnancy if you stay away from them. :o)

(There was actually someone in my childbirth class who said there wasn't anything she disliked about being pregnant. Seriously??? I had a whole list....)

If you don't have a bella band/tummy tube, I definitely recommend one. It let me get a little more mileage out of my "normal" pants.

It's a good sign that you're starting to feel better. Everyone is different, so it's hard to compare. Hang in there and the day will come when you really do feel better!
