Today’s actually 7 weeks and 1 day, I just couldn’t be bothered to post yesterday. I was way too exhausted! After getting Paxlet to bed, Mr Siili and I watch 1,3 TV shows and then I crawled into bed.
I am just so exhausted lately. I wonder if I got to bed early enough if I would be less tired or if this froglet (bean/baby/tadpole) would still make me just as tired. I have been coming home a bit early each day this week and taking a short (20-40 min) nap, but sometimes I wake up feeling even more exhausted than before I laid down. Thankfully the weekend is here. I most likely won’t get to sleep in, but I will be able to nap when Paxlet naps and then Mr Siili might just take care of Paxlet for a bit while I sleep longer. Ahhh, sleep!
I know I’m such a broken record on this next issue, but it is that much in my mind, or rather stomach area:
morning all-day sickness. I seem to be fine for the first bit when I wake up and start feeling yucky about an hour after waking, which is the exact time I am dragging Paxlet to daycare. And then again in the evening, once Paxlet is in bed I seem to get some relief. The rest of the day, nausea is more on than off. This week I’ve tried dried/candied ginger, ginger & lemon tea, ginger cookies, lemon water and eating more protein. Some of it seems to help for a short bit, but then it all comes back again. I knew I was lucky last time around not having hardly any nausea and never wished to experience it. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. However, I’m still very very very thankful I’m not puking.
I’ve been having minor headaches off and on. I think most of it is due to the fluctuating weather right now. It’s that time of year when we have a decent amount of thunder and lightning storms. Or at least out of nowhere rain storms. Last night was no exception. There was a huge thunder and lightning storm that passed just south of us, with one lightning and thunder strike right on top of us. Yowzers! It was exhilarating.
We still don’t have a nickname for this little bean. I’m bugging Mr Siili to help me come up with something again this time around. I don’t want to call it “bean” or “peanut” and Mr Siili doesn’t like “tadpole” because Tad is too close to a name and he doesn’t want to end up naming the kid that. LOL
Here’s some of the foods I made yesterday in hopes of combating nausea. The first picture is of my oven-baked eggs getting ready to go into the oven. The 2nd picture is the eggs being done. They sounds and taste so appealing to me right now! And the third picture is some ginger cookies I made. I don’t think they are helping at all. For starters, they are sweet and sweet just doesn’t go right now. In addition, I’m not a huge fan of ginger, but I am willing to try anything!
What are you tips and tricks for fighting off nausea? I’m desperate here!
