No Morning Sickness!

I started getting morning sickness even before I knew for sure that I was pregnant (queasiness is very rare for me, so it was one of the signs that led me to suspect pregnancy). But today is the first day since a few days after Baby's conception that I haven't experienced any morning sickness! Hooray!

The thing that helped me most with morning sickness was eating healthy snacks frequently--sometimes very frequently! I get ravenously hungry every 1 1/2-2 hours. My midwife recommends snacking on cottage cheese, as it is a very good and relatively inexpensive source of protein, and it has some calcium. I also snack on yogurt, and I try to eat several pieces of fruit every day.

Ha! I'm snacking on cottage cheese and pineapple right now, while looking at some blogs while my kiddos nap. I'm just a week ahead of you in pregnancy. :-)
