I'm due November 14!! I also do not enjoy reading the first trimester boards...
I am sick pretty much all day. The only thing that helps is taking zofran. I cut the pills on half and take one half every four hours. I am also dealing with an upset stomach most of te day as well. I feel like I am going crazy. I am 11 weeks and I just would really like to feel normal again. If not just for me but my DH. He has been really sweet and understanding, he did kind of crack last night.... I asked him to do the dishes, because the smell was horrible. He did, but he just kept sighing the whole time. I started crying because I want to feel good enough to be able to do the things I feel like I am supposed to do!!
Anyway... I am happy about this board as well. And even if I do not post a lot, I still read it everyday
Sorry you are feeling so awful! Everyone kept saying to me, "once you hit second trimester, it will be better." but it really took until the last week or so to get to that point. It felt like it would never come! I think everyone hits that point in their own time. I hope it comes soon for you! During the week, nothing really gets done...end of story! But on the weekends, I can usually do a fair amount. My doctors have encouraged me to do as much as I can and have energy for. I have had a few of what a good friend of mine calls "pregnancy meltdowns" and I have really screamed at DH for no reason at all...he has been great and so supportive! But I feel awful about it!
Sorry for those of you that have been really sick. I got lucky that I haven't had any ms thus far. At some point I was worried at the lack of symptoms, but once I had my 9 wk scan and my 12 wk NT scan and saw the little one jump about, I felt sooo much better. My older sis was sick throughout both her pregnancies and was on zofran. My younger sis (who's currently pregnant) also gets pretty sick, but not to the extent of needing medication.
Hey Everyone. I just wanted to check in and see how everyone is feeling!
Ladders- I hope you are doing well. Please let me know if you need anything, I am willing to provide any support I can.
As for me, it's going to be a busy (and expensive) month! We finally bought a new bed (KING SIZE!)! So today, we are moving things around in preparation for that. We are interviewing a doula today. Next weekend I am working and the weekend after that, the bed gets delivered. Then Memorial Day weekend, my in-laws are coming and we are putting together all of the baby furniture! I also have to renew my professional license and figure out what I am doing for continuing education so that I can get it done before the baby comes!
On Wednesday we go for the next ultrasounds and we will find out the sex. I am pretty excited. While I don't have a strong preference, I kinda want a girl...in part so I don't have to stress about planning a bris!
We just went to babies r us and wondered around to get an idea of what all we need. Plus, I'm trying to ease dh into this whole thing as he kind of freaked out when he started looking at things online. He's headed out of town overnight for his friend's bachelor party. That's pretty much our weekend
