Disadvantages: Feeling too bad to even get out of bed!
Well first of all if any of you dnt like reading about detailed morning sickness look away now!!! (just joking its nt really that bad!!!)
Many of my friends who have had children were not that bothered with morning sickness but wen i found out i was pregnant the sickness started as soon as i looked at the positive pregnancy test!!!!!!
I actually think that morning sickness is partly phsycological!!! I found out i was pregnant when i was about 6 weeks gone and i was completely fine until i found out then the morning sickness started straight away!
At first i was only sick in the morning when i woke up and then i was fine for the rest of the day. Then a week passed and i was starting to feel ill all day still only being sick in the morning though. Abnd then within another week passing i was bein sick during the night sometimes! And being sick all through the day! It was awful! I have always hated being sick ever since i was wee everytime ive been sick it makes me cry!! So this for me was hell!! Im so glad i wasnt working as there is no way i would have been able to work through my pregnancy! I couldnt get out of bed most days never mind get up first thing in the morning get ready and go to work!!! I would have been a total mess!! Besides the fact i permenantly looked like my face was a bit green!!!! Not very attractive i can tell you! I used to get people looking at me in the street because i looked so ill!
Wen i was hungry only the one thing i had in my head would satisfy my hunger and nothing else! It was a total nightmare for my partner as he got sent out loads of times each day at all hours for food for me as even though there was plenty of food in the house all i would eat was what took my fancy at that moment!!!
But i went through a stage of about 4 weeks where anytime i made myself somthing to eat i would take a few bites of it and have to run through to the loo to be sick!! It was awful! I was so hungry but i couldnt keep anything down long enough to satisfy my hunger!
It got so bad i went to the doctors and they done tests on me to see if it was somthing bad that was causing me to be so ill all the time. But thak god they all came back ok! So it wasnt anything wrong with me it was just the normal pregnancy hormones making me ill!
My midwife and anyone else i spoke to kept telling me "dont worry your morning sickness will only last till your about 12 weeks" Well needless to say that it didnt! It kept going! Before i knew it i was 20 weeks gone and still being sick all the time!! As my pregnancy got further on it got worse! It got so bad that even smelling somthing i didnt like would make me sick! I was once out for dinner with the family and had to run to the toilet halfway through the meal and was in the toilet for half an hour and by the time i came back out my dinner was cold! Not that i could have faced eating it anyway!
I tried everything to help stop it! Eating dry biscuits before i went to bed, like digestives, rich tea biscuits. And then my mum suggested eating ginger nuts as ginger is supposed to help take away the sickness feeling. But after a couple of days of eatin them i couldnt do it anymore! I was still being sick in the morning and if anything it was worse not better!!! When i was being sick all i could taste was ginger nuts and it was burning my throat! So that was that i had tried everything that had been reccomended to me and nothing was making it any better or stopping it! I eventually jus resigned myself to suffering it!
Then i had terrible stomach pains which was making me be sick! So we called doctors on call and when the doctor came out he felt my stomachand told me that i was just constipated and advised me to drink lots of fresh orange juice as that would ease my bowels into working again! His words not mine!!
So thats what i did! Drank over a litre of orange juice a day and it did help! It completely stopped the stomach pains and got my bowels on the move again!! ( sorry!) But it made my morning sickness a nightmare as the orange juice coming back up wasnt th most pleasant of experiences! But i had to keep drinking it as there was no way that i could suffer the terrible stomach pains again!!!
But within a couple of weeks the morning sickness had gone!!! It was amazin! I still to this day think that it was the orange juice that stopped it!! But on the down side i used to really like orange juice but now after having to drink it so much when i was pregnant i now cant stand it!!! Even the very smell of it makes me feel like being sick!
Also another thing that makes me feel sick now is the smell of cocoa butter moisturiser! I was using that all the time while i had morning sickness and now it is minging to me!!! The last time i smelt it was just a few days after i had my daughter and it actually made me sick!!! It was awful!!
Well i hope that you have found my reveiw informative and interesting!! And nt too disgusting!!!
If any of you reading this are having to endure morning sickness at the moment then i kno exactly how you are feeling and dont worry it wont last forever!
Thanks for reading my reveiw.
