"Evening sickness" or "yay, my body's doing exactly what it's supposed to be doing"

Seven weeks into this pregnancy and three days after the nausea started, I can honestly say I'm tired of it.  I wake up feeling fine but end up sick to my stomach and headache-y by early afternoon. This has resulted in entirely too many couch + Netflix/SVU marathons as of late (of which I'm not ashamed). 

Bananas and toast with almond butter help.  So does any sort of carbonated beverage.  That having been said, work is going to be challenging.  I've been wondering lately if I'm actually going to be able to work until early fall with how tired I already am.  I suppose that's a bridge to be crossed once I'm out of my first trimester, when the exhaustion is supposed to abate. 

Aside from that, I've been running on days I feel up to it, and spending a lot of time talking with Chris about how we're going to approach this pregnancy medically - OB versus midwife, the issue of vaccination, and other such things.  There are a lot of things to consider.  I know it's quite early to be discussing the pregnancy publicly, but I'm grateful for the input of others thus far - finding out early has allowed us the time to think through all aspects of the pregnancy.

  1. My 'morning sickness' was actually evening sickness, too! But looking back at these posts makes it fun to see how far you've come, yeah?
