First Trimester Woes may be over

I can't believe I've been away for so long. Thanks to all my friends who have checked on me through my blog and FB. I don't know how to start a blog now, haha! It's been a while and I feel that despite the long absence, there's really not much fun things to share. I may have had a long vacation from blogging, but trust me, the ordeal that I have gone through is not in anyway could be considered a vacation. I've never thought pregnancy could be this tough and physically challenging. I have been feeling sick for the past weeks. No fever, no flu but my morning sickness was worse than I could have ever imagined. I'd wake up feeling nauseous, dizzy, with mild headache, a severe feeling to puke, had a very odd and yucky taste in my mouth and no appetite at all except ice-cream, lol. I have been following the doctor's and friends' advice to eat small meals frequently and munch on saltine crackers every now and then but it hadn't helped me that much. The nausea gets worst with an empty stomach but after I eat, I'd feel bloated, gassy and still sick. I couldn't find a happy medium. Before pregnancy, I have been suffering with some kind of a gas/tummy problems already. I've been taking antacids and proton pump inhibitor OTC medication for years. And as what I have read this condition gets worse during pregnancy and they ain't kidding!

Oftentimes, I have attempted to blog but the ideas I could think of was just all about how sick and miserable I was. So I decided to rest from blogging for a while and use my laptop only for occasional FB and Netflix instant movie watching purposes. I'm currently on my 13 weeks and I have noticed some positive improvements this week. I'm still not back with my old self but the nausea has started to ease up. I'm hoping that this could be the start of a good 2nd trimester. I am scheduled to see the doctor on Friday and am hoping to hear the baby's heartbeat this time.

I apologize to PayU2 for rejecting several assignments lately. Sorry to all my Entrecarders and good blogger friends as well, for I was not able to pay your blogs a return visit. I know you all have been wondering where I had been. But now I'm back. And hopefully, I won't be too sick anymore to update my blog with some nonsense, haha! Give me some time to catch up with what's latest in your blogs. I miss you all!

Awwww, hun, I've certainly missed you & your cheerful visits, but I really hope you're feeling better. I don't know what can ease the nauseousness, but I hope it passes quickly for you, and that you're back to your old self in no time.

Also, make sure you stay hydrated, esp. when the weather starts to warm up. ;) It's best to keep momma & baby nice and cool!

Sorry about that ate Jhen! Things will get better by the time the baby gets here. It will be worth it for sure! Ang akoa pregnancy ni baby HF was a great experience. Mo kaon lang jud ko ug una dili nako masakit the whole day. Ambot lahi jud kaayo akoa it was a pleasant one.. mild headaches akoa lang ikatulog and inom ko daghan tubig and it was fine. Ingon ana man gud na ate Jhen naa buntis nga maayo ang iyaha experience, naa pod buntis na the whole 9 months lisod jud. Ingna lang gihapon ang doctor next visit ninyo. I am sure the doctor will have something else to say. Kana pod candied ginger makatabang pod for some buntis. Kana ang uban mo inom ug gingerale. Ingat and God Bless!

i missed updates from you jenn but i truly understand what you're going through right now. ing-ana jud ko sauna pagbuntis naku sa akong triz ba. very sick because of the morning sickness that will last 24 hours and so on and so forth! hahaha. i can only wish that the first trimester will be over for you aron makatilaw na ka sa kalami sa pagbuntis, labi na ug mo-kick na si baby. just take your time and take extra care!

Hi Jenn,

Nice to know your almost okay. I read in the 2nd trimester things will get a bit better. Prioritize yourself, blogging can take a backseat for now :)
