I have tried every trick in the book to deal with my morning sickness. From keeping snacks on the night stand to eating beans and upping my b12. Nothing has worked. I have learned that I can not drink coffee, sugar makes me gag and sleep helps. But nothing works to relieve it. I spend weeks 6-14 or so in bed. Even sitting is difficult. Its not just throwing up we are talking about here. Its like having the flu 24/7. I am fatigued and my head swims. I can barely function.
But this time I did something very smart. I am proud of myself. I thought ahead. I made freezer meals before the morning sickness hit. I had 10 lbs of cooked and seasoned chicken, 10 lbs of taco meat cooked and frozen, 10 lbs of regular ground meat cooked. That lasted me about a month. I was nice to not have to think about what I was making for everyone when even looking at food made me ill. When I had no energy and needed food NOW I could just grab a some chicken, microwave it and be eating in 2 minutes.
Not only when it came to food, but I also made sure all the kids school work was all ready for them and done before hand. I did everything I could as soon as I found out I was pregnant, because I knew a day would come that I would do nothing. And I was right. Planning ahead means a win against morning sickness. It might have kicked my butt, but I showed it whose boss.
