Small light meals. Stay hydrated. Ginger tea. Avoiding triggers. Crackers help too esp in the morning before you get out of bed. The scent of lemon can help too. And if it gets too bad your OB can write a Rx for anti nausea meds. Welcome to the joys of the first trimester!View Thread
I was just telling my hubby today that I never realized how much I love my morning coffee before I gave it up. It made me sick too in the beginning. Now that 11w4d and the baby has all it's major systems in place, I figure a cup a day should be ok and not hurt the baby. It's like nature's cruel joke. The first trimester makes us so exhausted that we need an IV to espresso yet you're not supposed to have too much caffeine. : ( Glad you're feeling better though!View Thread
Went to my second appt and DH and I got to hear the baby's HB. So excited! 165 bpm. (Up from 156 bpm at 7 weeks) It was nice and loud which was very comforting to me. So excited that I only have 10 more days until I am in the second trimester. It dawned on me that I only have one more visit and then we'll get to find out what we're having! This is going so fast. My OB said it is normal for me to "show" this early since this is my second baby. Everything is more stretched out and the uterus is pushing my organs up. She also said it's likely I could be able to feel flutters this early so FYI for all of you who were wondering about those two things. (Been talked about alot on the boards.)
Now she wants me to start gaining weight. 2 lbs in the next month. Never thought I would have to work on gaining! But I've lost 3 pounds b/c I haven't been able to eat.
Hope your next visits go wonderful as well! Can't wait to hear about them.View Thread
I agree with the PP's. I love my morning cup of coffee and as long as you don't exceed one cup of coffee or two cans of soda you're fine. But read labels on food and other drinks too! There are over 200 other products that have "hidden" caffeine.View Thread
