I think I can see the light... it's getting closer!
I'm actually feeling myself pull out of this morning sickness junk. Yesterday, I realized that it took me longer to get to the point of feeling nauseous. For instance, it came on later in the evening. Usually it hits hard in the afternoon. And....usually when I'm putting the kids to bed (since it's such hard work), I'm always gagging. I only gagged once last night. Wahoo!
I also just felt a little sick. Not miserable to tears or too miserable that I just had to sit on the couch. I could actually move and not feel like I was going to throw up.
I just have to say, that I'm very excited about this!
I remember I felt fabulous by about 18 weeks, so I'm hoping that his pregnancy is no different. I know that some people struggle the whole time, and I'm worried about that. I can't wait to feel better. I've kind of forgotten what that feels like! The sad thing is, I wasn't feeling so great before I got pregnant. I had a hormonal imbalance that was making me gag a little, and giving me huge food aversions. Sometimes I even felt nauseous. So why in the world did I get pregnant to add to that? hahaha. Good question. The thing that reassured me is the hormonal changes that DO occur when you're pregnant. Your thyroid enlarges and can function a little better. So basically I'm hoping that after the sickness passes, that I feel great. It's been a while!
