I’m in the first trimester of pregnancy with my fourth child — and currently in the trenches of “morning sickness.”
Each experience I’ve had so far has been the same: I feel nauseated all day long. But instead of losing my appetite because I feel sick to my stomach, the only thing that provides some form of relief is eating. Like constantly munching all day long.
When I first wake up in the morning, breakfast helps curb the initial wave of nausea, and an a.m. snack helps keep it at bay. But by the time I need to pick up my daughter from preschool, I feel like I’m going to die if I don’t specifically eat a Filet-O-Fish sandwich and french fries from McDonald’s. Or a Crunch Wrap Supreme from Taco Bell.
Once I fill my tummy at lunchtime, I’ll be good to go for maybe an hour until another…
