I am seeking advice about morning sickness and how to handle it in this extreme heat. I am estimating that I am 6-7 weeks pregnant right now (first doctor appointment is 8/13).
In 2 weeks, I will be attending a 3 day (8/3-8/5) outdoor music festival. I have looked at the extended forecast and it looks like it will be 90 degrees all 3 days with a heat index of 105 degrees. For the past 2 weeks, I have had extreme nausea and have barely been able to lift my head or open my eyes because I have been so sick. I am fearing that I will be just as sick in 2 weeks when I am 8-9 weeks pregnant. So, in a nutshell, I will be walking around for hours on end in extreme heat with potential severe bouts of nausea (fingers crossed that I don't have nausea).
I attend this music festival every year and this will by my 6th year going. In fact, this is the one vacation I take each year because I look forward to this so much. Needless to say, NOT going is not an option.
So I guess what I am asking from all of you is: how would you handle this situation so that you are comfortable at all times? I have plans to pack plenty of ginger candies, water, and barf bags, and I plan on seeking shade whenever I can and dressing very comfortably. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced being outdoors in hot weather while already fighting morning sickness and what you did to make yourself comfortable.
