I’m going 14 weeks in a few days. How time flies! The last time I updated you on my pregnancy was my battle with the ‘all-day’ sickness which most people call morning sickness. Well, the saga continues!
My OB (and most of the stuff I read) said that in most pregnancies, nausea and vomiting subsides on the 2nd trimester. Somewhere 12 to 14 weeks. I was very hopeful it would completely disappear on my 12th week. I even had a countdown! On my 12th week 2nd day, I was feeling quite energetic when I woke up. It was a dream come true. No nausea at all! I did the laundry, cleaned up the soon-to-be nursery room, cleaned up the kitchen, did some cooking… And then when afternoon came… I started getting dizzy. And the whole cycle of vomiting started again. Looks like my mind was just playing tricks on me. =s
I had to remove all the triggers that makes me vomit.
We had to…
…change our hand wash soap 3 times.
…change my deodorant.
…change my feminine wash.
…change our dish washing paste.
I had to buy a mask coz whenever I get near the kitchen, my head just starts turning!
I had to buy a mint candy which is very helpful when I travel.
I had to buy Vicks to ease my dizziness and headache or counter any smell that trigger vomiting.
I was really getting so down those past weeks. I am just more than thankful for the people around me. I would randomly receive messages from friends or my mom or sisters asking how I am.. just when I needed words of encouragement.
And my neighbors… They are heaven sent. They would check on me once in a while and ask me how I’m doing. I just feel so secure.
And my husband… What will I do without him? He’s just my hero.
He mops the floor.
He cooks for me.
He washes the dishes.
He just takes care of me with all his might!
I’m so thankful. In spite of the roller coaster, God gives me people to cheer me up. I’m never alone. =)
On a side note, do you want to see how Baby looks like???
This was her on her 7th week =)
