Anyone else still have the vanishing belly? I'm a STM and at 11w1d and I wake up with a flat stomach and go to bed looking like I have a balloon stuffed up my shirt. Lol

@madcouplewithabox The nurse said that this is really common in 2nd trimester, and I may just be experiencing it a bit early. She recommended:
1. Eating some protein right before bed so that my blood sugar doesn't crash during the night.
2. Drinking more water, especially in the morning. I'm really good about drinking a ton during the day, but I usually don't start until I'm at work. She said urine should always be clear to very light yellow.
3. Switch positions SLOWLY. Do not get up quickly, or move quickly after standing for a while.
She also said that since my diet has changed in the last few days (I'm finally able to eat veggies and other healthy foods!) my body is probably just trying to figure out how to regulate my blood sugar with the changes.
@missblaze So glad you're alright! I about passed out too, I couldn't make it to the house fast enough. My eyelids were SO heavy so I truly don't know what happened. This morning I fell asleep 3 times at my desk.
Brighter note: I cleaned, cooked, did laundry, watered flower beds, FOLDED laundry, went to parties/cookouts, had a girls morning, got my eyebrows waxed and shopped all on Saturday and Sunday! I'm slowly creeping into 2nd trimester, thank God! I can feel my old self getting back to normal lol, went to said cookout and was ready for the onslaught at 6pm.....IT. NEVER. CAME. I grabbed a plate of heaping fruit and just kept eating because I was so hungry. Not once did I feel the urge to lay down, hurl, or pass out. Last night? Same thing.
Darker note: Every smell starting last night has me weak, doubled over, gagging. The nasal congestion that @Steph30032 was talking about hit hard last night into this morning. I gagged over the kitchen sink a few times and ran to that trash can. BIG MISTAKE. So many smells. Here's hoping this passes.
