I haven’t written for a little more than a week on this blog. It’s because of the pregnancy. I am experiencing persistent lightheadedness and frequent bouts of dizziness. I’ve seen my OB-GYN twice this week because of the difficulty. Glad that I feel better right now hence I am finally on my laptop, and hopeful that it progresses in the coming days so I could get back to work.
My OB said the feeling of lightheadedness is probably due to to my insufficient food and drink intake because right now, I have no appetite for anything! The mere thought of eating makes me feel sick! I dislike to eat and I throw up literally every after meal! My OB gave me more vitamins and hopefully, the baby gets enough nutrition. But although I don’t like any food intake, I try my very best to! There are some ways that I do each day (sometimes they work, sometimes they don’t) to battle morning sickness and my lack of appetite for food. Here they are, I hope they work for some pregnant mommies reading this post.
Simple Ways to Overcome Morning Sickness
- Eat smaller meals.
- Make homemade lemonade ice pops to eat whenever you feel like vomiting.
- Drink tea (advised by a friend).
- Drink plenty of ice-cold water.
- Avoid fatty foods.
- Eat fruits!
I wonder why some say that second pregnancy will be waay easier than the first! I can’t say the same right now! I would even like to think that this is more difficult! =(
I’m feeling lucky however because I have a very supportive and caring husband. He is spoiling me a bit these days and I am savoring it. He gives in to my little requests like my rare cravings for particular fruits and food. One morning, I told him I wanted a sumptuous breakfast because I am in the mood to eat and he took me and our kid to 7 Corners in Crowne Plaza for their buffet breakfast! Sadly, the only dish that I enjoyed that time was their grilled salmon!heeheee
Yesterday, I also sneaked out a bit. My first dinner date with friends ever since I’ve learned about this pregnancy. I couldn’t turn down the invitation because the circle only gets in full attendance whenever our friend Sally is back in the country! Feeling a bit nauseated, my kid and I went to Corazon’s in Shangri-la pPlaza to meet them. I was praying not to faint as dizziness was kicking in while we were walking in the mall!haha My husband was so worried when I told him I went out! =)
So this was my week in summary: I was in bed most of the time-feeling lightheaded or building LEGO with Kyle. Then, my impromptu dates with the beautiful people that surround me!
Praying for better health in the coming days!
