Morning sickness, is that you again?

I was pretty sure that I had paid my dues with the amount of morning sickness that I experienced during my first trimester. Although now I think I may have had the wrong idea. I was warned that morning sickness could rear its head again in the third trimester, but I remained optimistic and thought, "Not with me, it won't." If there is one thing that I have learned with pregnancy, it's that NOTHING is predictable.

In the last couple of weeks I have experienced a few times where I felt close to fainting. I feel really week, my entire body heats up and, my vision is skewed. I (err, I mean Dave) remedy this by lying down, drinking lots of cold water, and eating peanut butter; this seems to do the trick. This can happen even if I have eaten soon before. On top of this happening, every night this week I have been feeling nauseas before I go to bed. I have even jumped up from my sleep feeling like I am getting sick. Thankfully I am fine in the mornings, but it's getting worse as the week continues. I don't like to eat much before I go to bed, so I am running out of ideas to try to "fix" myself. I want to know if this is this a preview for the next 12 weeks. I know I am going through all this for Bean Sprout; and I am willing to go through hell and back if that's what he needs. But at this rate, little Griffin isn't ever going to have the option of having any siblings that aren't dogs.

  1. lol.... no siblings besides dogs! Sorry you are feeing bad. I didn't have any morning sickness as long as I was constantly eating.. which is why I gained way too much weight.... I have no good solutions, but I feel your pain. It isn't much longer till your little one is here and you'll have a skip in your step again!
