Pregnant after 35

Nauseous constantly

All my symptoms kicked into hyperdrive around 6 weeks pregnant.  I don’t remember being this sick with my first.  How are the rest of you mommies coping?

    First trimester symptoms have been the strongest I've ever had this pregnancy. The moms on my birth month board have been making great suggestions and a lot of them have really helped. For nausea, try the nausea relief drops (usually ginger/lemon flavor), adding vitamin B6, Sea Bands acupressure cuffs, and having snacks on hand so you don't get too hungry. For constipation, I got the OK from my OB's office for miralax (I've found that just a sprinkle in some water or juice in the morning is enough for me), a daily colace/stool softener, and drinking lots of water each day.

    For the exhaustion? I'm sorry, but that's just what it is...I finally started feeling well enough to have a small cup of coffee in the mornings but I'm still wiped out by mid afternoon. Weekdays, I try to get to bed early and on weekends I try to get a nap. I don't typically nap, so the weird nap-guilt is a battle but my exhaustion usually wins. 

    Good luck!!

    Thank you so much for the tips!  Definitely going to try a few.  Another fun symptom emerged… I’m super emotional all the time now.
