oh, SURE

so NOW I get 'morning' sickness.  I stopped taking my vitamins because they where making me ill.  Rizo got the filoc acid he needed (according to several sources), I'm waiting for some $ so I can get a different, better brand so I can keep nourishing both of us.  Now a week later, I've been feeling ill every time I eat.  harumph.  And I'm constipated.  Oh the joys the joys.  Sorry if you have NO desire to hear about this lol.

Some changes in the past week or so:
I'm not quite as tired as I have been.  I'm still tired, but I don't fall asleep if I sit down.
I've got the pregnancy thirst now.  My naturopath gave me a recipe for an electrolyte drink so I keep properly hydrated.
There is a lot of pressure/discomfort in my abdomen.  Some of it might be the constipation, but some of it is the uterus growing.
My breasts aren't so sore, and they have stopped growing (for now...)

I went to see a naturopath the other day.  My diet is pretty good.  He wants me to eat more protein in the mornings, and to make sure I'm eating fat and protein when I eat carbs (like fruit and cheese or nuts...)
I got a b12 shot.  He's hoping it will help with my anxiety and energy levels.  So far it hasn't helped with the energy part.  He said it might not happen after the first one.

Still waiting on a midwife call.  I'll call Monday if I don't hear from them.

  1. First off, Congratulations!! :D

    When I was pregnant with my daughter, I had the worst time finding prenatal vitamins that didn't make me sick. Then a nurse told me that I could take 2 Flintstone vitamins without iron (I'm pretty sure they're the gummy ones).

    She also told me it was the iron in prenatal vitamins that usually cause the awful nauseau and make the constipation worse.

    When I switched over I could tell a difference. I still had 24/7 morning sickness but I stopped feeling so bad about an hour after taking the vitamins.

    Another helpful thing the nurse told me(obviously each doctor will have their own opinion on this) was to take a B6 vitamin with half a unisom pill and that also helped with morning sickness.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to go on and on. :) I just know how miserable I was and I hope this helps.
