Nausea, etc..

How the F do women deal with morning sickness and a crazy toddler?

No, for real. How?

Anyway, so nausea and all must mean that something is still cooking. I am quite surprised that I have lasted almost two weeks and not really have thought much about Thursday's ultrasound. So much of this feels unreal. I mean, the one and only other time I was pregnant was preceded by years of trying, failed treatments, and one exhausting trip on IVF lane. I was expecting/hoping/praying for it. This time around, I am in disbelief that this is actually happening. Other than my head in the toilet and the all day nausea.

Anyway, dealing with tummy troubles with A. I weaned suddenly last weekend, and he is drinking almond milk and rice milk due to his intolerance of milk and soy. Poops are a problem. I'm not sure if he has poopy problems because he is fighting a bug or if it is from the milk. Ugh. He's now on a super bland diet of rice, chicken, bananas, toast, and applesauce. And has bad bad diaper rash, so the frequent diaper changes are met with screaming and tears from him (and me!) Of course I am feeling tons guilty for weaning him and causing his tummy troubles.

So, yeah, ultrasound Thursday. DH took the day off work to come with me. It's at 1:00. I told him this is the heartbeat ultrasound, and to not be surprised if there is more than one little flicker. I'll try to update as soon as I can Thursday. See you then!

Poor A. We swear by Grandma El's diaper rash ointment. It literally clears up the nastiest, worst diaper rash and instantly soothes the skin. It also coats and protects, it's a vaseline consistency. I use it for my eczema and it is amazing. Hope he feels better soon!! I'm so surprised your doc made you wean. Like really. I know a lot of mamas who nurse while pregnant. Good luck on Thursday!!

i can only imagine how difficult it is to care for a toddler when you have morning sickness. Hope the tummy issues clear up soon!

Good luck thursday!

I was pregnant with twins with a busy toddler and very sick!! I had to take diclectin and that worked to keep the barfing at bay. Good luck.. i don't want to tell you how long it lasted...but lets hope for you its over after the first trimester.... can't wait for your update on Thursday..

I bet the poop problem is from the milk, it takes a little time to adjust.

I am really tired, but my toddlers are older than yours while preggo so they will play by themselves and do their own thing or be content to sit next to me and talk my ear off. I can't imagine it when they were one, I'm sure you're exhausted!

Can't wait to hear about your ultrasound tomorrow!

I have NO IDEA how you are goin to do it with the nausea! When I had the stomach flu a couple weeks ago I just about DIED when I had to cook for them and I had to just lay room to room while the boys played and crawled all over me ;) I wish you lots of luck!!
