I'm figuring things out, gradually. I've figured out (thanks to yesterday's misadventures) that walking fast makes my nausea worse, and so one of the easiest ways to control nausea when I'm on the move is to slow down. I tend to be a fast walker, so this has the potential to become frustrating for me when I want to get somewhere, and was also not the easiest thing to figure out. But now I know, and I will work on it. I already knew about keeping something in my stomach, but certain things work and certain things don't, and it's kind of a matter of experimentation to figure out what works, as it seems to change daily. But I'm also learning that protein (i.e., meat) helps combat my nausea a little better than do breads or fruits and veggies.
I am very glad that this week is only a 3-day work week. I heart rest and relaxation, especially when I'm starting to feel a little off-balance. I went and bought a pair of maternity "lounge" pants at Old Navy during lunch today that can pass as slacks so that I can wear them to work. All my other pants are getting snug, especially when I sit, which I do most of the day. And anything snug around my stomach makes me more nauseous. I couldn't resist changing into my new pants on my break, and am soooo much more comfortable now than I was before. Yay for knit pants that look like slacks! I may have to go back and get another pair in another color.
My emotions are back under control again (thank goodness), but I am still tired today. Part of it is that the spouse's event I went to last night went kind of late - it was after 10 before I got home. It was fun, though. I couldn't eat as much as I would have liked due to being mildly nauseous all freaking day, but I enjoyed what I could get down, and even found myself liking the cheesecake, something I normally don't like all that much.
I've also noticed that some things that I used to love (milk, crackers, garlic bread, and yogurt, to name a few) I can't stand anymore. And some things that I was never all that thrilled with (cheesecake, lemonade, and popcorn, for example) I now love. Hormones are crazy in all the things they can do to a person.
