Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst.
So, with my last pregnancy, I was sicker than a dog for about 12 weeks. I lost a ton of weight and couldn't eat anything but fruit and crackers. It was hell. I think back at that time in my life and I remember thinking I was going to die. I could hardly sit still in class (since I was still in college) and could hardly walk the distance to school from my car. It was so hard! With this pregnancy, I haven't had much sickness yet, I've just been so incredibly exhausted. Everyone keeps telling me it's a boy. :) But, since I'm still very early int he process, I'm preparing for the worst. I remember grapes and club crackers were my go-to snack. I've also heard ginger works well, so I'm grabbing ginger snaps. I also just ordered 3 boxes of Preggie Pops, which I've heard amazing things about. I figure during subbing, I can suck on those and if my kids hassle me (since if a teacher has candy, they have to share...) they can see the box for themselves, seeing that it is for pregnant women will help keep them away! Any other ideas? At least this time I know what to expect if I do get sick, but I'm still hoping I don't get sick, or at least that it isn't as bad.
