My Baby's Journey Week 8

I really cannot recall if my nausea was this bad during my first pregnancy. I noticed it now triggers whenever I feel anxious or excited or nervous about something. Oh my. Now I have to be a boring emotionless person in order for my nausea attacks to be in control. Hmmm.. Oh dear.

That leaves me with nothing much to do. Sleep, eat, blog and watch tv. Oh gosh.

But you know la me. Mind over matter is the in thing for hubby and I currently. So I squeeze in a few evening walks now and then, coupled with doing the laundry, cleaning, mild shopping and eating out. I am beginning to lose interest in eating out nowadays also. The level of cleanliness has somehow declined and the pregnancy has alleviated my sense of smell to almost bionically impossible to explain. Uurrgh. Thinking about it does not help either. Ok change of topic.

So what do I do when I am faced with all these challenges.

1. Drink lots of limau (lemon) water or juice.

2. Chew bubble gum

3. Take deep breaths

4. Eat home cooked food (I miss my mummy's cooking and sister's soup)

5. Stop breathing if I see or smell anything remotely disgusting (walk away fast!)

6. Close my eyes (same as no. 5)

7. If I really have to do something disgusting, that is when my mind over matter kicks in. Oh my goodness, that one drains out most of my enery, man!!! Bleeehhh....

8. Sniff Vicks or minyak angin

9. When there is a lot of air in my tummy (like last night - continuously burping out the air), I lie down, put some medicated oil on my tummy and try to push the air out. It almost feels like having gastric, that's why I need the air to go out fast).

10. No gas drinks at all (I learned my lesson already!)

Urrgh.. Mind over matter.. Mind over matter..

kay: it was on friday. nanti sia post up ok!

quirin: r u taking ur progesterone pills. it helps with the bleeding. how is ur hcg level. i think it would be better if u check the hcg level to make sure the pregnancy is viable or not. 3/4 of ur wait is over. i really advice u to do it!

queen quirin said...

ed, thanks for the advice. so far haven't done the hcg level test. tomorrow will meet doc for the bleeding. I don't know if its a progesterone pill the doc prescribe me but hoppfully tomorrow review will be ok. Can't affort to loose this one for its my 1st time after waiting for 2 1/2 years
