6w2d - Now this is different.

Well, the nausea is officially here. Not too bad, hoping it doesn't get too much worse in the coming weeks. I didn't have any with Not-So-Wee-One (save for a more sensitive gag reflex while brushing teeth) so this is all new to me. It's been building up slowly over the last few days and most of the time it's just a mild anxious/nervous stomach. I made an Italian meatloaf a couple days ago and it was soooo yummy. I tried to eat some leftovers the next day and could only get 3 bites in. Then today, Hubby heats up the last of the leftovers and I literally couldn't handle the smell and made him take it up into the office upstairs to eat it. Then I had to turn on the exhaust fan to clear out the smell. It hasn't affected my appetite yet though, I'm constantly starving! Just have to figure out what to eat that won't make me feel ill. Mac-n-cheese hit the spot today. Thanks to NSWO for suggesting it.

I'm pretty scared for the ultrasound on Wednesday. I'm trying to remain hopeful, but part of me is also preparing for the possible worst. I have no reason to think that there is anything wrong with this pregnancy, but I didn't last time either and that's what bugs me the most. I'm trying to hold onto the fact that the nausea is new and hopefully that means good things for the pregnancy, but still...Can't I just go to sleep and wake up on Wednesday at the clinic? Is that asking too much?

I probably wouldn't sleep well anyway. The past couple of nights, the insomnia is back too. I wake up to roll over or something and my silly brain gets latched onto something and won't let me go back to sleep. Last night it was the guest room. We live in a 4 bedroom house and right now the allotment is; our room, NSWO's room, guest room, and office. If this baby is another boy, we'll put him in NSWO's room, move NSWO to the current guest room and need to combine the office & guest room into the current office. (If this baby is a girl, she gets the current guest room and NSWO will stay in his room. Less re-painting to do that way.) The problem is, the office isn't that big to accommodate a queen size guest bed, desk and the TV that Hubby wants to put in there when he gets a new on for the family room. (Don't ask. :rolling eyes:) We have thought about doing a Murphy Bed in that room so that the majority of floor space could be used for play space since we don't have guests all that often, but when we do, they need a real bed. My brain went around in circles last night off and on for about 2.5 hrs trying to figure out a solution to this problem. Why? I have no earthly clue. When I got up this morning, the 'problem' didn't even bother me much, so why did I obsess about it last night? To rob me of valuable sleep I guess. I'm still no closer to a solution. Man, I hope my brain doesn't do that again tonight, I could really use some better sleep.

I don't know why but when I was in early pregnancy I had the same insomnia and worried about every crazy thing out there...then when I did sleep I had bizarre all eased up the further into the pregnancy and by the second trimester I felt like I could conquer the world. I have a gut feeling you are in a good place right now. (and the Murphy bed is great--we had one when I was growing up and it was wonderful to have it out of the way when we didnt need it- the bottom was paneled like the wall so when it was "put away" you couldn't even tell it was there:)

Oh my gosh, Nickie. You should have called me! LOL. My brain totally latches on to things, too - you described that so well. It sucks. And all I can think while it's happening is, "SLEEP! GO TO SLEEP!"

As for Wednesday, you know all my thoughts and prayers are with you that these few days will fly by. I'm back from my blood test and that was the longest 4 days of my life but hopefully it will bring peace of mind and you'll get the same on Wednesday. That will make it worth the wait!

You'd better figure out what room goes where before we shop up a storm!!

Weird. What happened to my comment?

Anyway, what I said was that I'm excited to hear about your ultrasound today!

Also, I've been having bits of insomnia - waking up in the middle of the night thinking of random things, trying not to think of those random things, but I can't help myself!
