Since I was about 5 weeks pregnant, I have been battling a big and uncomfortable case of nausea. I’d call it morning sickness except it doesn’t occur only during the morning and can be a day-long and night-long issue for me. I have been on medication since about 6 weeks in, and fortunately that has my vomiting down to only a few times a day.
The biggest challenge throughout all of this has been figuring out which foods and smells contribute to this uneasy, queasy feeling and which foods or drinks may help it go away. I have a large case of pregnancy nose and have discovered that lots of smells set off nausea for me. And although avoiding these items can be tough and sometimes impossible with children in the house and simply living in the world, I think it’s good to be aware nonetheless.
