Nuts, seeds and oily fish, such as salmon, provide healthy alternatives to saturated fat-rich foods, such as high-fat meats and dairy products. The oil fish contains may be particularly helpful if you have high triglyceride levels because it helps your gallbladder empty more efficiently. Snack on moderate amounts of mixed nuts or seeds instead of chips or pretzels, and choose baked or poached fish over fatty meats. Feeding your sweet tooth occasionally with a sugary dessert probably won't cause major harm, but an overall sugary diet increases your risk for gallstones and gallbladder disease.

Something about that heave changed something inside of me and I felt better. In these windows of feeling better, I tried to eat, knowing that will help, so I went upstairs and ate animal crackers. Karen came by a little while later with a ginger ale and moral support.

So she made herself a peanut butter sandwich, which turned into two sandwiches and suddenly I found myself eating bread again. Moments later the mail arrived and I unpacked a pair of sea sickness bands I had ordered from Amazon.

By dinnertime, I felt like eating ravioli. Mind you it was plain ravioli with sauce and cheese. No veggies in sight. It seems that even on my worse days, I do get a little better by dinnertime. Woke up and took my meds right away with some graham crackers in bed. After that, I actually felt well enough to make pancakes!

A HUGE improvement from the beginning of the week. Nausea returned a bit mid-morning, but for the most part, I felt like the meds were working. Even managed some salad! I had to eat slowly though, because my stomach still feels very sensitive. A good sign indeed. After lunch, though I felt great. This afternoon Matt and I had our first appointment with the nurse at our practice.

She went through everything from morning sickness to the two ultrasounds I will get to food rules got it! I asked Matt what he thought of the appointment and he said it made him a bit more nervous about labor and delivery.

Felt pretty good this afternoon and evening! Not ideal, but definitely something I can live with for months. This is also our first baby and at 5 weeks through about 10 weeks I was constantly sick. By week 7 I was actually throwing up which actually made me feel better, at least for a little bit until the nausea returned. Week 10 was the end. It was incredibly strange but preferred over the constant nausea.

I much prefer the every 2 hour hunger though to the constant uneasiness. In the earliest weeks pf pregnancy, I really found myself craving bland, sort of nostalgic foods. Luckily I was also craving lots of citrus as well.

I love sweets but only salty food when I was prego! And how ironic is it that when I was craving them I actually found them in a tiny supermarket in Italy??!! Aww you poor thing! I was hoping this week was going to be better for you and sometimes we just need a good cry…preggers or not!

I hope this nausea stuff hits the road sooner than later. My husband made beef stew for dinner earlier this week, and I almost threw up when I tried to eat it. The nausea and the tiredness and the breast soreness have all gotten much worse this week.

That would SUCK at work!! The honesty in this post is so comforting. The constant all day nausea can really take its toll on you. The hardest part for me is not knowing when it will end. The length of the first trimester can be really daunting.

I know in the end it is all worth is as I have a 15 month old daughter and am in my first trimester with baby 2 now. I was hoping it would be easier this time, but am finding it even harder.

The story of your conception and pregnancy is beautiful so far as I know if will continue. This would make an amazing book one day.

Best of luck for a continued healthy pregnancy! I am so nervous about that as I do NOT do well with nausea. I know friends have told me that they HAD to eat something every 2 hours like on the dot to avoid nausea. Ooh, twins run in your family! So, when we got pregnant, none of our family was surprised to hear there was two girls on the way!

Best thing in the world. Three kids keeps us pretty busy right now. Yikes, I am so lucky to not have had much morning sickness in my first trimester. I also love my Snoogle. I was having a hard time sleeping on my side, and it is so nice to lean my back against something! I took B6 and Unisom for 12 weeks when I was pregnant with my daughter. I thought I was going to die. I was wondering if that was why you were sick yesterday?

I remember being so afraid to stop taking it: I am really loving your honesty in this blog. It is so incredibly helpful for those of us who are not yet pregnant to read your story and get an idea of what can happen during pregnancy emotions, physical feelings, etc. Thank you for inviting us on your journey. Best to you and Matt! You guys will make wonderful parents! My sister had bad ms and zofran was the only drug that worked. The thing that worked for her was the zofran pump.

Good to know theres more optioms out there if need be. With almost daily puking. And I commute an hour each way to a M-F job. Zofran was my lifesaver though the side effects of that, namely constipation, had me regretting it some days. This baby got maybe two veggies the first half of pregnancy. But the sickness was also reassuring after a previous miscarriage and infertility struggles.

At almost 27 weeks now, I can finally consider the thought of enduring it all again someday. It will all be worth it when we hold our babies!! I still get a twinge of nausea every now and then if I eat too fast or with certain foods. My big thing now is acid reflux. Ugh it can get pretty bad. I was also drinking the oj like crazy for awhile and in addition to exacerbating the acid reflux, I ended up with a canker sore from all of the acid!

I was lucky because when I was most nauseous, I could pretty much just go to bed. Sorry you were so sick! Hope things are much better now. With both of my boys 11 and 5 now! I was sick for 16 weeks. Threw up every day. At work — not fun. My doc gave me a med that gave me major restlessness that was worse than the nausea! Promptly threw that out. Jordan was right — the acid reflux gets bad, but Tums always helped me.

It was all worth it in the end. Prayers for you and your little one. Oh gosh, I remember wondering if I was going to survive or ever feel normal again! After two weeks of puking every day, I started the b6 and unisom at night and zofran in the a. Kept me from throwing up, but still felt the constant nausea. We now have a healthy baby girl and the first trimester horrors are a distant memory.

What a post…I remember these days, Kath. Thank you so much for sharing it with us! And before that, ate it several times a week. My son is 18 months old and I jsut recently was able to stomach it again for breakfast on a regular basis.

I can only imagine.. That is absolutely horrendous. I am so sorry that you have had such horrible sickness! I wonder why some people get nauseous and others dont! Awe, I am so sorry that the nausea hit you so hard. I remember sitting on my bathroom floor sobbing because I felt like I had no control over what my body was doing. Luckily for me, it was generally the queasiness you were hoping for with just a handful of really bad episodes. Thankfully I only had the dry heaves once, but the almost constant low grade nausea somehow seems worse.

Def was eating stuff I would normally never eat: Had my NT screening today and got to see the baby again, plus hear the heartbeat. Now, I want you to know that I really do feel bad for you. I remember crying to my husband one evening because I felt so bad but let me tell you, the tears I cried a few weeks later when I lost the baby were much, much worse.

I know you are just being honest and that this is your blog so you can say whatever you want, but I hope in the future you will be a bit more sensitive. I, and I know many other woman who would agree with me, would gladly hurl every single day for nine months if it meant that I could have a successful pregnancy. I would just hope that knowing there are women out there who would gladly switch places with you, morning sickness and all, will give you a little bit more perspective as to what you can and what you cannot handle.

I know there will inevitably be parts of my blog that are so honest they are inappropriate to some, and I tried to soften this comment by admitting I felt uncomfortable and guilty with my own thoughts after they passed.

I added that I did feel guilty about it, but I wanted to share my emotions so that if others have the same reaction they know they are not alone.

There are so many unspoken things surrounding pregnancy, and I wish all topics were able to be discussed more freely without worrying about what others will think.

Admitting where you went mentally, while in the throes of such sickness, is a part of the journey. Suffering is all relative. I have had those very same thoughts. Of course, now when I hold my 13 month old girl, I feel guilty. I am 6 weeks with my second and it is worse than before. If someone has never had debilitating morning sickness, they cannot judge you for making that statement. I am 7 week right now and have suffered a loss before.

This is after medication, without medication I got to the point that I just vomited anything up. When you are dehydrated, exhausted and desperate, these thoughts are hardly surprising and I have thought them despite how desperate I was and am for this pregnancy to go to term.

Women suffering through this deserve to be understood, not judged for their thoughts in their darkest moments. One thing I cannot tolerate is nausea!!! It can be somewhat debilitating, and especially when you are pregnant; do not have the desire to eat because of the nausea; and know that you and the baby need the nourishment! Hopefully… This, too, shall pass!

I think she means, specifically in this instance, it would help to bond women who may have felt that extreme kind of nasuea and wondered if they would be able to handle all that comes along with pregnancy! I too am very sorry to hear of your loss, but I must admit that I do appreciate the honesty Kath is displaying here. It does not, in any way, help me bond with her. Krista-I know your loss personally, just experienced it. I do have to defend Kath though… her honesty is what keeps us all coming back.

Most people do because its such a new and crazy experience. I wish you the best! Given the emotion that the subjects arouses, I think I did it in a pretty respectful manner.

Whether or not she chooses to pay any mind to what I said is her decision. I had a similar thought this week after being sick for several days and emailed a counselor because I felt there must be something wrong with me. I appreciate the honesty very much. This sounds so incredibly awful! I so hear ya! I got by on lots of cereal for every meal and pasta also. When I got to 12 weeks everything got so much better. Pancakes and oatmeal would have made me puke — I was impressed!

Thank you so much for being honest about what the first tri is really like. I felt those feelings and thought those thoughts when I was in pain and so sick and tired all the time. When the symptoms hit you like a ton of bricks and your hormones are going crazy, you think and do things that are totally out of character and that is NORMAL! Thanks for your honesty. Luckily, things are starting to get better for me at this point and I can see the light at the end of the first trimester tunnel!

I agree that I really appreciate the honesty, like I said earlier, I had the same thoughts and feelings and I feel like we should be able to talk about these types of things without being ostracized for it. That sounds really miserable. I have always heard, though, that the sicker you are the better. I do take my prenatal at bedtime, although it has never bothered my stomach any time of day.
