Overwhelming Nausea

So much nausea that I cry... and it is all day sickness. =( I keep praying that God will give me the grace to endure this. It was easier when pregnant w/ H cause I could eat whatever I wanted. Now I can't eat potato or tortilla or cheese or rice. Sometimes I just cry because I am so hungry and nauseated. Nothing sounds good. Nothing that I can eat, that is...

To whom much is given...

I have news! 2 weeks ago, I had a positive pregnancy test to confirm what I had been hoping. We are thrilled to be pregnant and I am nervous and shellshocked. I had totally made my piece that we were a only child family. I didn't even get emotional while waiting for af last cycle. I had many prayer conversations with God, asking for peace and grace. God has a sense of humor after all these months.

We are 6 weeks pregnant and just like with H, the all day nausea started during week 5. I am nauseated all day. I force myself to eat but the nausea remains. I miss potatoes, tortillas and butter *right now!* When pregnant with H, I just ate whatever sounded edible. But being GF, DF, EF and lots of other things free, my options are very limited. So I am struggling.

We actually told H last night because she was asking what was wrong with me. =) I guess she is more observant that I thought. Also, I don't/can't go walking every morning or even go outside sometimes. The nausea is overwhelming and nasty. But I am thankful that I don't throw up. Yet.

We thank God for our wonderful gift of hope and a new life!
