Warning: pity party ahead.
Morning sickness appeared at 5w6d or so...right about the same time as it had with the twins. No biggie, just waves of nausea through all hours of the day and night and getting a little worse with each passing day.
At the suggestion of Dr. C., my MFM, I started taking 50mg Vitamin B-6 three times daily with 1/2 a Unisom at night. I started this on Saturday and felt pretty good, although yesterday I was completely exhausted.
Well, this morning I felt a little questionable as I got ready for work. Hot flashes...not a good sign. During my commute, I contemplated turning around and going home, but I soldiered on.
I made it to 8:00...and then I puked. Have I mentioned how many times I vomited in the bathroom at work while pregnant with the twins? The nausea bit was flashback-inducing enough. This, though, has brought me right back to how much my last pregnancy sucked.
I ended up leaving work and am home in my sweats. I've eaten some but another episode feels inevitable.
We'll see how I do the next few days. I'm not due to see Dr. M. for my first prenatal appointment until 11/26 -*after* Thanksgiving. My naturopath said yesterday she has many other tricks up her sleeve to combat morning sickness before I resort to drugs. I'm sorry...I have an extremely high pain tolerance, but I cannot tolerate *this* for another 5-7 weeks. I've already done that once. In fact, I forgot until today that I used to wonder whether there had been a connection between my vomiting and Aliya's first abruption (at 7w3d, just 3 gestational days from where I am now).
Regardless...I will try whatever I can, but I need a pretty quick fix.
