9 and 10 weeks pregnant

22 Sep

I skipped a week of updating about the pregnancy, and even with this week I am a little bit late updating. The reason for the tardiness is due to the fact that I was so incredibly sick with nausea. While I don’t vomit while pregnant, the nausea is debilitating. The worst day that I had was the day I was waiting for the anti-nausea medicine to get called in to the pharmacy. Even after I picked up the medicine and took the first dose, I spent the entire day in bed and went to bed for the night at 6pm or something crazy like that. Even with the anti-nausea medicine that week, I was pretty miserable. The medicine took the edge off and I was able to do some things, but I was anything but well. Week 8 can be summarized by nausea, nausea, and more nausea.

The following week I switched to a different medicine, and I felt quite a bit better, although I am not sure if I can contribute that to the medicine or just that fact that I was in a different week of pregnancy. Last week I was pretty functional and accomplished a lot more things. My nausea is the worst from about 3pm until bedtime, and was very bad in the mornings until about noon. The past few days my morning nausea has improved greatly, almost to the point of feeling normal in the mornings. And last night was the first time I felt decent in the evening. I think I see the light at the end of this nausea tunnel!

To summarize, my nausea was the worst from 7 days 6 days pregnant until 9 weeks 6 days pregnant. Two weeks of absolute misery, and several more weeks of manageable nausea. I suppose I might not be climbing out of the pit and this is all a cruel joke of hormones, but I am hoping that the worst is finally behind me!

My picture is a comparison of a few weeks ago with this weekend at 10 weeks along. I think I finally have entered that fat looking stage and am looking forward to looking pregnant and not thick.
