I'm Pregnant!

Recommended Posts

Oh, I just ate some Fritos too! They were soooo good. I honestly used to eat so healthy. I'm rationalizing that I'm taking my multi-vitamin and will get back on the healthy track after this all-day sickness goes away!

I found this about the salt craving:

Some nutritional explanations may factor in for some of Mom's cravings. A desire for salty foods -- such as pickles -- may indicate a need for more sodium as blood volume and body tissues are increasing.

Thanks for sharing the salt info.! :) I have been soooo sick these last couple of days (and nights). This sickness has to end soon! I seem to feel the best when I don't eat (less nausea/diarreah/constipation), but the only problem is the baby needs FOOD (and so do I). :blink: I've lost two more pounds (I'm down to 119 at 5'8"). :unsure:

Please ignore me, I'm very hormonal today...I could just cry. :( I really want to ENJOY being pregnant.

I already love my little unborn baby, but I can't seem to shake this "morning sickness"....which is more than a "morning" problem.

Oh well, I'm sure I'll be less hormonal tomorrow. Thanks for letting me vent! :rolleyes: -Julie

Thank you for the info.! :) The OB gave me some nausea meds. (Zofran I think)...I've started taking it. It does help some. I take it and Pepcid AC and at least I can eat. It may not digest that easily, but I am getting food down! B) I had the most wonderful ultrasound the other day! For the first time, I could clearly see the baby...arms, fingers, and all! :P Gosh, it almost made me cry! My hubby was with me, and he got all emotional and excited. Despite feeling like total crap, being pregnant truly is a wonderful experience! :D -Julie

P.S. You're right, Coke is helping (and Ginger Ale) when my stomach turns. ;)

I am on the verge of asking for something myself. i've gotten sick every day this week.  Only another month until I'm out of the first trimester... seems like an eternity!!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

((((HUGS)))) honey. I totally understand. :wub:

I went to the ER the other night because I was so sick! :blink: I absolutely hate the hospital, but I couldn't eat or digest or go to the bathroom (mild bowel impaction). So I had no choice.

A month does feel like a long time when you're pregnant. Ask your doctor about Zofran and Pepcid AC. One warning though, the Zofran can make you VERY constipated...epecially if you are prone to it anyway. <_< Are you vomiting daily? If so, make sure to watch your fluids so you don't get dehydrated, ok? :unsure: Dehydration can sometimes sneak up on you. :ph34r:

Hang in there! Talk to your OB about anything of concern to you. Don't wait (like I did) :rolleyes: until you're in the ER in some very embarrassing positions! :blink:

Many hugs,

Julie :)

I am about 8 weeks pregnant and nothing I do will even phase my queasiness. I feel sick when I'm hungry or if I just ate what sounded really good to me (gluten free of course)! I think celiac disease is hardest on pregnant women with it, since we inevitably crave all these different foods we absolutely cannot have. Especially since it's not just about us anymore, it's about our babies too! I have a pretty good pizza crust recipe I tried out last night and it was the best gluten free pizza I've had since I was diagnosed a few years ago. So if any of you would like it, just email me at hafadai43@yahoo.com!

Hang in there Rachel! The first trimester does seem unending if you are suffering with severe nausea :(

I hope you begin feeling better soon. Congratulations on your pregnancy! :DB)

I have FINALLY started to feel better in the last few weeks. I'm seventeen weeks now....I started feeling better about week 14.

Good luck to you!

P.S. I agree that it is harder staying gluten-free while pregnant....normally being gluten-free isn't that difficult, but the baby (actually the hormones) causes STRONG cravings that are hard to ignore sometimes. :rolleyes: -Julie

I found that once I started taking my vitamins and as much folic acid as they would let me the nausea went away.. Also making sure I ate three full meals a day helped a lot..

Thanks Lorraine for the info! My nausea got much better after week 14...Thank goodness!

My pregnancy update: I am 25 weeks pregnant. He (Eli) weighs almost 1 and 3/4 pounds! :D He is very active and all of my ultrasounds show a healthy baby! (despite all my meds. and my epilepsy, lupus, celiac, and sjogrens). What a blessing! Eli is kicking like crazy! But I love it ;)

Hope all is well with everyone. -Julie
