Just a quick post for you lovely people who check this regularly for updates or happen to bounce here from an email. I know I am utterly behind on updates and posts, but quite frankly, I'm sick.
When I was pregnant with John Ross I was terribly nauseous. With Clara, not so much. This time, I keep food down and can manage the nausea, but I am terribly averted to food and am struggling with extreme exhaustion and body aches. It's almost like I have the flu, but I know it is just our little "Spud" getting big and healthy.
It makes being a good mama and wife terribly hard and puts blogging on the farthest back burner.
And yes, I've tried everything. Exercise, laying-low, Gatorade, ginger-ale, tart foods, citrus, spicy foods, fast foods, high fat foods, water, tea, toast...none of it is helping long term.
Anybody have experience with extreme detoxing during the first trimester? I don't mean intentional detox, but a body going out of its way to flush chemicals and imbalances? I sure feel like that is what my body is trying to do, but I don't know how to clear it once and for all.
