Pregnancy diaries || Week 6 & 7 - Morning Sickness

Week 6

Worst. Week. Ever. Anti-nausea remedies are no match for my morning sickness. During the first few days of week 6, I was at work and felt horrible the entire time, but was able to keep everything down. I first noticed the sickness on Tuesday morning when I had to get up early and catch a flight to Great Barrier Island for a work meeting. Something I had been looking forward to for a while. We were in work meetings during the morning but spent the afternoon exploring the island and I felt terrible. Clutching at my wrists in a desperate attempt to try to find the anti-nausea pressure points there as we bumped along the winding roads. Come Wednesday I was bed ridden, only half of what I ate actually stayed in my stomach, and I had to eat everything twice. Once to throw up and then again to keep down. I ended up taking the next few days off work and was bed ridden right through to the end of the week. Chris was a life saver, he took on all of the cooking, cleaning and comforting as I was helpless and could hardly stay awake to watch a movie in bed. Pretty much sustained myself on toast and Weetbix. Prenatal pills are essential but I dread taking them. My relationship with food has never been stranger.

Week 7

I am starting to understand my morning sickness a little more so can kind of prepare for it. Every morning I have a few mouth fulls of water and promptly go to the bathroom to throw it back up. Knowing this means that I can preempt it. Plus, throwing up water is a whole lot easier and less wasteful than throwing up food. Otherwise, I have been feeling nauseous all day but no toilet/bucket emergencies at work yet, although I do think some of my colleagues may be getting suspicious. I need to eat every 2 hours otherwise I feel terrible.
