Since this is my first pregnancy I don't have any clue what to expect (other than what other people tell me & books). Right now I am just rolling with the punches as they are served in my body, because after all- we are all different.
Thursday was a really bad day for me. It was my first real dose of this thing called "morning sickness", (even though it hit in the afternoon). I thought to myself, this too shall pass, but then became very upset. I couldn't eat. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't nap. Awful is the only way to describe it. By Friday morning I was feeling somewhat human. Thank goodness! My husband and I went on to have a lovely night surrounded by great friends.
I woke up Saturday morning still feeling good and headed to yoga. I was so happy. A normal day! A day to get stuff done! And then BOOM, it was back with vengeance. All my plans for the day foiled. Which makes me incredibly cranky and quite frankly sad. This carried into Sunday. Luckily a great tip was passed along about GINGER (ale, tea, chews, etc.) on Sunday afternoon. I purchased a Peach Ginger Tea & Ginger Ale that evening. Hot damn it is working! Even though I have a pretty hard time choking it down, I will as long as it continues to work. Big thanks ladies!!
With that being said, what were your "remedies" for not sleeping, cramps & morning sickness in the early stages of your pregnancy?
