Oh I was ever so sure that I was going to escape relatively unscathed by morning sickness. I was so convinced.
I had the odd moment of nausea up until last Monday, and the closer I crept to 12 weeks, the smugger I got.
However, at 10 weeks 3 days the NVP arrived.
I find myself having to eat a biscuit whilst still laying down in bed, then eating breakfast within a few minutes of getting up, or it will strike. Saying that, the nausea arrives whenever it likes. I had to be (very quietly) sick twice at work on Tuesday, which was lovely.
Yesterday at 11+1 I actually felt fine and full of energy for the first time in months! I hoped that maybe I had reached the point of feeling better! But then I have been retching about every hour today. I really can’t wait for this stage to be over.
We do have our 1st scan on Friday morning though! I can’t wait to see if there is actually anything in there!
