Pregnancy & Nausea

Wednesday, April 25, 2007
I had cantelope for breakfast this morning. Thought it was a healthy choice. Not long after, Heather dropped off Logan, as I agreed to watch him today. She was telling me about nursing school, and while she was talking, I started to get a major wave of nausea. Stronger than I've ever had before. I knew that I was going to be sick. As she was talking, I realized that this wasn't going to go away on its own. I interrupted her mid-sentence and made a run for the bathroom. All that tasty cantelope came right up along with my prenatal pills. I felt so much better, and didn't get sick again for the rest of the day, but one thing I'm learning about nausea with pregnancy--it appears whenever it wants to regardless of where you are, who you're talking to, or what time of the day. You try to find a pattern with it, but it's pretty hard to find anything consistent. You never know if what you'll eat will trigger it or even if you don't eat enough. My midwife says a lot of time nausea is caused from blood sugar levels going up or down, so often times, eating more protein will help keep blood sugar levels constant, helping with nausea.

One way or another, most likely this nausea will be gone in another month or so! I'll keep my fingers crossed anyway! :)
