Our first, and the first grandchild for my husbands parents. We haven't told the family yet. A trusted friend who does custom home decor is making ornaments (Grandpa est. 2018 or something like that). My husband wants to wait to announce in case something happens. Both sets of our parents suffered a miscarriage with their first pregnancy, his brother and his wife did as well. So we're waiting and that is fine. He won't mind that I'm telling internet strangers.
I've been surprised with how sick I am. I'm nauseous all day every day. I don't think I can keep it a secret much longer because my mom notices everything. I think I'm about five weeks along. Drinking a lot of water helps but I'm at my limit with about a gallon and a half every day. I'm eating a lot which is concerning, but if I don't I'm nauseous. How did you battle morning sickness? I can't just eat all day, that is a recipe for disaster. I've battled obesity since I was a child and I'd like to limit weight gain during pregnancy. I've spent three years losing over 100 pounds and I know me, I could gain it all back in a heart beat. So I'm drinking as much water as I can and keeping fresh cut cucumbers and cauliflower around. Just what is your advice for morning sickness and pregnancy? What were you most excited about? What books do you recommend?
