Above is my new purchase of sea-band mama wrist bands to help with nausea. I really think they are helping though I still feel some nausea, it doesn’t seem as bad!
Also, in the picture is my fematab tablets, which are now reduced from four to three a day. I really thought I could get off the cyclogest pessaries and/or the clexane injection but no. I’ll be stuck with them until my next appointment in 2 weeks 6 days!
I’m not counting or anything!
I also started getting a headache last night. I woke at 3:30 in morning and was awake for about an hour. I’ve not had one uninterrupted sleep since I get pregnant. Mostly, excitement or nausea and now headache. I still have it this morning.
I treated myself to Heidi Murkoff’s guide to what to expect now that you’re pregnant and it is very useful, it goes through all the gods a pregnant lady should be trying to eat. Which is loads. I need to up my intake of calcium so am going to stat with cheese and yoghurt. Hard when you don’t really feel like eating though.
Had a late lunch out today with a friend. Had a chicken panini with mozzarella and fries. I wish I could stop but I finished all my fries and half of the panini as I found it a bit sickly. I am absolutely stuffed now. Have not had massive amounts of nausea since the morning but that could be a number of things at play. I’m using those sickness bands and they could be helping and I’m also eating regularly in small meals, which has been recommended by everyone!
Normally, I eat a small breakfast, smaller snack, small lunch and big dinner. I’m not a huge eater but I’m having to force myself to eat a small but an hour or row after breakfast and then before lunch and then an hour after. Same before I go to bed.
I’m hoping it’s these new tactics and everything is going well. Headache is gone but tiredness remains.
