The first couple months of this pregnancy I was ravenously eating everything in sight. I was, unbeknownst to me, not only nursing but pregnant as well. This was a deadly combination to any food item not yet ready to meet its demisable fate.
Now I have officially entered the bizarre "I need to eat, but I can't eat that" phase. If I do happen to find something that looks appealing, about halfway through it I can no longer stomach it. Once in a while this happens mid-bite and in order to keep myself from throwing up I need to immediately spit out what I have been chewing. Today I have started, yet not finished the following: a bowl of cereal, a banana, a piece of pizza and a slice of chocolate pie.
Since I've done this before, I know what other stages are coming up. Next will be the throwing up just about everything stage, and after that, throwing up partial foods. As in once after eating pizza I only threw up the cheese (I swear it's true!). And then will come the my stomach is so squished and uncomfortable that I can only take in my daily calories in the form of juices and shakes.
Ah, the joys of pregnancy!
My doctor gave me anti-nausea pills nice and early with this pregnancy (I had to throw up and continue to lose weight for five months last time) but sadly, I can't start them until I am done breastfeeding. And crazily enough, after nine months of struggled nursing, Palmer has decided he now likes to be breastfed and no longer will take formula. What's a nauseated-pregnant-desperately-trying-to-wean-mom to do?
