Yuck. This time around is pretty miserable. I must say. I'm still trying to count my blessings that I'm not so sick that I'm hooked up to IV's and such. I'm still able to go to church, so that is good. That's about the only place I go, besides Dr appointments. I have sent the husband grocery shopping, etc.
The ginger pills seemed to work okay, but I wasn't feeling too much relief. I talked to a midwife who gave me instructions on a process called "Emotional Freedom Technique" which I actually really like. It has to do with affirmations and acupressure points. If anything, it's a good distraction and helps me focus. Hypnosis worked a little bit. I'm also trying to eat the "right" foods to help settle down my stomach.
Then I just went to my Iridologist. I should have gone to him in the first place. Because of all the acid in my stomach, he put me on catnip. Who knew they sold catnip as an herb? It helps with stomach acid. He also looked at my Vitamin B6 pills and showed me that they were in combination with B12 and that sometimes that doesn't work so great when they are in a combination. So I got a plain B6 vitamin.
I've started these supplements and my stomach has calmed down a ton. I'm amazed. I still feel a little nauseous and I still have that motion sickness fuzzy feeling all day, but I'm grateful for any help. Plus, I don't know how you can get rid of the sensitive gag reflex. Not fun. My poor kids sometimes dry-heave with me cause they come in checking on me to see if I'm okay and it sets them off. My lucky husband has missed all of the great throw up episodes. Too bad. He just better believe me. :)
Here's to hoping that 14 weeks comes soon!
