Things they don’t tell you

I kind of thought there was a grace period. Like you find out you are pregnant and adjust to that and then a week or two later you start to feel a bit sick.

There is no grace period.

Instead, you find out you are pregnant at 6:30 am and by ten are questioning whether or not you are going to spend the next hour in your office dry heaving in your trash can. Maybe that’s just nerves, you tell yourself.

Then that night you get so exhausted you sit on the floor and cry. You wake up the next day, wondering if you should eat breakfast or if there is no point as at that time you think you’ll just revisit it in an hour. After eating dry chex on the way to work you have to sit down for your hour long presentation because, honestly, standing seems too hard.

There is no grace period.

  1. Nope, there sure isn’t. It gets worse before it gets better. But then it does, and you can feel your little one move within you, and all is right with the world.

  2. That sounds rough I’m sorry. I was one of the lucky ones that didn’t get sick ever, don’t hate me. Hang in there.

  3. wow you are having some early symptoms, I’d take that as a good sign. Maybe not a good sign that the first trimester is going to be a ball for you, but that you’ll have a strong pregnancy. My symptoms didn’t get bad until week 7 or 8. Hopefully it’ll start out strong and get you early relief, because it’s no fun. I never resorted to this, but I read that ginger tea or candies helps soothe nausea.
