Week 6

My lack of eating is getting worse.  It's been 2 weeks since I've had a meal, and I've been snacking on anything that sounds remotely appetizing.  I do get hungry but can only eat a few bites then I feel full (because of the bloating).  When I drink carbonation (Sprite or ginger ale) to help with my nausea, it hurts my gas situation.  I get nervous to eat in front of people because I don't want them to comment on my lack of eating.  It's exhausting being "on" and acting like everything is normal in front of friends, because they don't know I'm pregnant and sick.  I have to nap after hanging out with people!  Also I've developed a super strong sense of smell and hearing.  Going to the grocery store is tough with all those smells!


  1. The heightened sense of smell thing was (in my opinion) one of the worst things... it never allows you to forget your queasiness. And things you used to love the smell of all of a sudden gross you out. Hope it's getting better!

  2. It is much better than it used to be! It's still a disadvantage since I am around 5 year olds all day- yikes :) but I hardly feel queasy at all now, YAY!
