I Turned 33 And Didn't Throw Up

Not graphic, but short discussion of nausea below; followed by talk of tickers

Most of last week and this were marked by Nausea: In Extremis; with Monday being the absolute worst.  Thankfully, I have not thrown up yet.  I'm concerned that if I do throw up that my body will learn of that option and that I'll just never stop.  Keeping fingers crossed that my body does not learn of the option.

I went to the acupuncturist yesterday and that helped immensely.  I was nausea-free the entire session and for about 40 minutes afterward.  My nausea has been pretty mild this morning, so that's wonderful.  I'm certainly going back for more (acupuncture, not nausea) next week.  I'm also going to start seeing the nutritionist again, because I'm finding it hard to include fruits & veggies (and I miss them).

It was my birthday yesterday and my family celebrated with me by going out to a nice dinner with elaborate dishes and sauces.  I celebrated with a plain, grilled chicken breast and buttered egg noodles.  It was wonderful.

I broke down and ordered Preggie Pop Drops, and, since I can't find any of my Sea Bands (acupressure wristbands for motion sickness), a new set of those.  Here's hoping.

Tickers
During this IF journey, I've often been jealous of others' pregnancy tickers and dreamed of the day when I could install my own on my blog.  Now is my chance to have my own ticker, but I've been too afraid of triggering some Evil Eye by posting such.  Instead, I've been going to the site every single day to watch the ticker progress.

Well, I'm going to take the plunge, but will have the ticker at the bottom of the blog so that I don't scare myself or others.  If you want to look, please do.  I'll be peeking through my fingers.

I'm sorry your sick, but I'm sooooo excited that it's m/s! Way better than a stomach flu. Hang in there.

scrolling...Welcome Happy Ticker! We've been waiting.

Happy Birfday! I <3 buttered noodles. Delish.

Nausea. I think it's worse than the act of throwing up. Then again, I'm not a vomiter, rather someone who gets really really nauseas. I hope acu works and that you find relief soon. I've heard eating small snacks frequently helps.

Happy birthday Jendeis! So thankful you get to experience the much dreamed of nausea for your birthday, but that it was kind of enough to leave barfs behind. :) Hoping the m/s passes quickly!

Mint tea and the preggie drops have really helped me with the nausea.

Also, I know vomiting is totally gross (I HATE doing it) but I feel SO MUCH BETTER after I do. It buys me about an hour of feel good time.

Happy birthday!

I'm not a vomiter, and somehow made it through without actually vomiting. Of course, I often wonder if I would have felt better if I had given in.

I hope the m/s eases up soon!

LOVE the ticker!

I could have sworn I commented on this post, but I don't see anything...hmm...

Anyways I think I posted that I was glad you had a nice birthday. I had ginger chews while pregnant and they really helped...them and saltines.

What is your official due date?
