Life update

Well, turns out all my fears about not being able to get pregnant a second time around were clearly unfounded, as I am now 7 weeks super-pregnant. What does super-pregnant mean, you ask? It means since five weeks I’ve been uber sick and it’s a constant reminder of how very much pregnant I am at every moment of the day.

Up until tonight, my go-to cure has been curling up in bed and sleeping it off (for the most part), but tonight my stomach decided to nix that by making the nausea much worse when I tried to lay down to go to bed early. I had grand hopes for waking up super early in the morning, getting enough food- slowly- in my system to make it possible to go to work and having an overall better day than today was.

Ha, says my stomach.

So instead I’m at my computer, having just crafted a fresh sub plan email, and searching for new remedies/foods/cures/prayers that I haven’t tried yet.

What I’ve Tried:

B6 and Unisom

Stopped taking vitamins with iron

Stopped drinking and eating at the same time

Crystallized ginger

Preggie pops

Peppermint oil

Essential oil roller (contains ginger, peppermint, frankincense, lemon, grapefruit, orange)

Bland foods (rice/quinoa cakes, pumpkin seeds, crackers)

What can I try next? I’m really needing something to turn around here if I’m going to make it to the end of the school year.
