Feeling Sick

I need a pity party! It has been a month and a half since I felt any where close to decent and there are so many things I miss because I just don't feel like doing anything. Here are some of them:

-piano lessons (and playing the piano)
-a clean apartment
-making some of my favorite dishes
-being able to decide what I am going to make for dinner (nothing ever sounds good)
-more walks outside
-Girl Scout Cookies (they have been sitting on our counter because I want to be able to enjoy them when I eat them)
-getting stuff done during Anna's naps rather than just sleeping
-Having people over more often
-not making Hubby do dishes for the entire day after dinner

Oh, the list could go on and on. What I really want back is my motivation. It disappeared quickly after the nausea started and some days I can hardly get off the couch. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll start to feel better and actually enjoy being pregnant! Fortunately, I am getting really excited about it. In a week we'll be able to hear the heart beat for the first time!

When I was pregnant with my first three, I was so sick. In Utah they give Vitamin B shots. That saved my life! You could try taking a complex B vitamin, but make sure you take it when you eat. I'm not sure why it helped me so much, but I could tell when the shot was wearing off. I got shots once a week. It's very common in Utah, not sure why other places don't do it as much.

The midwives I see at the University Hospital suggested that I take vitamin B6, and I have but it hasn't helped much. I don't like it, but if it doesn't get better in the near future, I'm going to have to take medication for it. Blah.
