This pregnancy is very similar to my pregnancy with Belle, yet different at the same time.
I have been struggling with your basic nausea and fatigue, but it is different than my first pregnancy. I had nausea with Belle, but this pregnancy feels very on and off nausea. When I have it is is TERRIBLE, and when I don't I feel pretty great! With Belle it was always a low-grade nausea that pretty much stayed the same from 7 to 15 weeks. I have started taking ginger supplements and have tried sea-bands. I was QUITE skeptical about the sea-bands, but sometimes I think they work! Even if it is all in my head, it works :-)
The fatigue has also been different. I think the reason it feels harder this time is because I can only sleep when Belle sleeps :-) In my first pregnancy I could sleep whenever I wanted! An adjustment, but I'm figuring it out.
All in all, I really can't complain too much. The nausea and fatigue reassure me that all is going as it should. I pray that this baby grows strong and healthy and that we hear a heartbeat at my appointment April 27.
On a side note--Paul has started clearing out our basement because we start work on it next week to finish it off. I am AMAZED at how much we have accumulated in our 5 years of marriage. I have a feeling we will be throwing out or selling a lot of what was down there!
