No Fun At 7 Weeks

The past few days have been rough for me. Not only have I had morning sickness most of the day but the cramping and spotting comes back when I am on my feet too much. And I am not talking longs walks, or an hour at the gym, I am talking just getting up and down waiting on Kaili. Everyday errands and what not seem to be too much for my body to handle. The nurse said I have to put myself on bed rest once this happens. Pity party for one please.  I was really hoping to be able to work out through this pregnancy, it makes me feel low, anxious and irritable that I can’t do much and I am only 7 weeks. When does this get better?

Saturday was a hard one, I couldn’t stop dwelling on the fact that maybe my body isn’t meant for this whole pregnancy thing. I can’t keep up with Kaili who wants to go to SeaWorld and the park and that makes me feel so guilty. I have to get myself through the next week without Shane then he is home for 2 weeks, thankfully.

After feeling sorry for myself, I got up and made these Korean BBQ lettuce wraps. Then we drove down the street to check out some super duper Christmas lights, Kaili really got a kick out of it.

On a positive note, I’ve read that B6 can help with nausea so I will be heading out to grab a bottle of vitamins and the weather is supposed to be gorgeous for a few days. Maybe I can come out of this week with a tan?

  1. Sorry to hear about the nausea and spotting.Glad to know your doctor’s are attending to your needs- did you have the same experience with your daughter?. My nausea just hit this past weekend too! Morning and evenings arent’ great-but no complaining.

    Interesting about B-6. I used to take that daily until IVF round.

    Take it easy and enjoy that natural Vitamin D

  2. I’m sorry you are having some problems. I trust they will go away soon. You really don’t need another tough pregnancy so I am thinking positively that you will soon be over the hump and can enjoy the holidays. Take care! Love, aunt Carolyn

  3. Thanks friends. I am feeling better, mentally I think the sun may have something to do with that 🙂
    My pregnancy started ok with my daughter but I was put on moderate bed rest at 12 weeks for a Subchorionic Hematoma…so fingers crossed this will all just go away soon.
