Snow Haiku and more ;)

Its hard to believe I haven't been back here since last week at this time :( I've had a busy time of it lately and life has been getting in the way of blogging ;)
Anyway, I'm back this week again for Mama Kat's Writing Prompt!
I chose prompt 1.) Write a haiku about what you see out the window. (if you don't know what a haiku is click here.)

Snow out the window
though its not quite time for it
wait another month!

I used to work for a place that conducted telephone surveys. I spent the time between calls coming up with telephone survey haikus ;) I wish I could remember some of them because they were pretty funny. But I probably lost them about 5 moves ago.

Anyway, I've been busy over the past week with Dr's appointments and having to run to town for this or that... Anytime I have to run to town for anything that just kills my entire day. We live about 40 minutes away from anything and everything having to do with civilization. Which makes it super sucky when you forget something at the store! :)

I had my first prenatal appointment on Tuesday! We scheduled an early ultrasound, so I will hopefully have some reassurance next week! Other than that, you know how those first appointments are, nothing but what not to eat and take for medication and other such information. Too early for all the exciting stuff.

I am horribly horribly nauseous. 24/7. It sucks. But at least I'm not barfing. But then some days I wish I would just barf and get it over with. While it sucks, it makes me feel good - as being nauseous is a good sign.

At least I can still eat. And boy am I ever! I have to eat something about every hour, otherwise the nausea gets worse. When I was pregnant with baby girl I was the same way (and the nausea did not end after the first trimester!) but that time nothing was in the least appetizing. I had to force myself to eat after the nausea set in.

Anyone have any suggestions for nausea? Was there something that worked magic for you? My sister suggested ginger snaps when I was pregnant with baby girl, and that worked for maybe a week, then I couldn't even look at a ginger snap and thinking about one now makes me want to barf...

Great Haiku! I agree it is too early for snow.

Oh and when PG with my boy Bob's melt in your mouth peppermints were the only thing that kept me from puking. I worked at a hardware store and you can imagine the flowers and other fragrances in the summer that were torture to me.

I have heard sea bands work too, but I was always too cheap to try them.

Love the Haiku! It sounds so pretty but I so do not want the snow to come! Yikes! I had bad roads!

My doc gave me some pills to stop the nausea. I always got sick at night which was good because the pills made me tired. I can't remember what they were called.

You know they make ginger pills. They're with the vitamens. I think they work pretty good for all types of nausea.

It really is good sign that you feel that way though. It means everything is going as it should :)

I wish it snowed here.

I was sooo nauseas when pregnant with Love and my doctor told me to take Unisom (the sleep aid). It doesn't put you to sleep but helps the nausea. He said it has been on the market for decades and safe for mommy and baby.
Google it...or talk to your doctor!

COLD fruit and peanut butter sandwiches on toast were the only things I could stomach for 4 mos! Good luck!

It's definitely too early for snow, we even had some in Britain the other week even though I didn't see it myself.

Michelle said...

Great Haiku. Sorry you are having bad nausea. I had it too and the only thing that gave me temporary relief was eating "food." Nothing really worked to get rid of it except giving birth.

Jen said...

what worked for me was smelling lemons and drinking sprite and eating Mc Donald's sausage muffins. I know it was a very strange pregnancy.

Valeta said...

I had to get meds to keep food down this pregnancy. Last time since it was xmas time I had lots of candy canes and they worked.

Teresa said...

I was so nauseated with #7 and jolly ranchers really helped,those and gingerale! I still ended up losing 11 lbs the first trimester.

I carried Cheerios with me everywhere! When ever I would start to feel pukey, I would pop a handful and feel somewhat better.

@ All: Thank you all for some really great advice!!! I will be trying most of them! :) I went out and bought some peppermints and they seem to help (while they are in my mouth anyway)! :) Great advice!!

Mama Kat said...

At least your sick for a good reason!! I can't wait to hear how that little peanut is growing!!
