I thought it was a bug since it hit at 2pm yesterday. I felt bad all day and stayed in bed, but the hurling came at 2. I slept off and on, having crazy bizarre dreams until 8:30 this morning. I woke up still feeling 'off'. I just had my second round of hurling and I think I can safely say that morning sickness is in full swing.
I am thrilled about that. I know that most of you are thinking, "What??" For women who get pregnant easily, have healthy babies and no children to die, pregnancy is different. I envy you. I have tried to be positive ever since I got the positive on the blood test. It's really hard! I worry that I will lose this one, too.
I had nausea and some dry heaving with Olivia and the last pregnancy. I had some nausea and heaves earlier in this one for one day. These early weeks when you don't feel a baby move or see the big belly, everything is questionable. Were my breasts bigger just because of extra fluid? Was I extra tired because I was working so much? Then, when those symptoms disappear for a bit, the big worry comes.
I feel better this morning than I have in days. I welcome a daily hurl if that's what it takes to let me know the little one is still growing strong before I feel him or her. Those of you around me, maybe not.
