Nausea and more nausea

Sleeping seems to be my only cure although I feel OK whilst eating (as long as its something I fancy) and for 10 mins or so after. As soon as my tummy gets slightly empty then that weird feeling in my stomach and that nauseous feeling in my head comes back. Maybe its something to keep my blood sugar constant. I could just not fast even 3 hours nowadays. Have tried Coke as recommended, it makes me feel better for a short time, maybe helping me by distraction as it brings back childhood memories of being taken out for Sunday lunch by parents. Another thing from childhood that seems to be helping is tomato salad with vinaigrette dressing. Cheese goes down well, which is just as well as most other forms of protein are a no no. I always go off chicken in pregnancy (salmonella fears). MIL would be horrified by my lack of sustaining food but there'd be no point trying to force myself to eat something I'd feel like regurgitating anyway. I think like a lot to do with this pregnancy/ childbirth / child rearing lark, instincts are vital.

and life goes on....

feeling slightly better, I think the nausea was more down to the bug that the kids have had. I feel bad only if I have to leap out of bed suddenly to assist one of the kids. Generally v tired, thanks to the sedative effects of progesterone I think, and quite weak but I hope my reviving appetite improves this. Anyhow now and again having my dose of 'Floradix' which is a herbal mix that provides lots of vits and minerals. Tastes foul but the dose about the size of a shot so you just have to down it. Giving some to S as he looks quite pale and it seems to stop him moaning about being tired.
Had some weird pains the other day, which I feel guilty about hoping this might be it, ie the end of the pregnancy. This is me being brutally honest but inshaAllah I'll feel more positive about everything soon. Just don't know how we're going to move house and the memories of the pregnancy with Biryani are still fresh. I'm coping now but DH goes away soon and wondering if I'll manage. Should put trust in Allah more and be happier with the condition I am in....

Still blockage in nasal dept

and now and again nausea, worst in the middle of the night when one of kids cries out with a headache/ about to vomit/ has vomited or just wants a drink.
But we've all been afflicted with a tummy bug to some degree so don't know if its part of pregnancy or the bug but probably both. Cold plus gastric flu in unison, not fun. May Allah make it easy for us amin
Stomach looking bloated again more likely down to bug ,IBS. hope not twins...!
Have started looking again at my Ina MayGaskin book, but then put it down again, reading brings on nausea, plus topic matter pertaining to maternal mortality not morale boosting right now..
