“I just can’t . . . “
This was pretty much all I thought and said during my first trimester this time around (I’m currently 23 weeks pregnant.). I’d order a salad . . . “I just can’t.” I’d try to push through a cardio workout . . . “I just can’t.” I’d try to get out of bed . . . “I just can’t.”
Like many things with pregnancy that I hadn’t experienced myself, my view on morning sickness was “Is that really a thing?” My mom telling me she lost 10 pounds during her first trimester with my sister because she was so sick . . . my first prenatal client in NYC (I love you Melanie!) canceling on me because she had just vomited . . . my friends who swore they couldn’t eat anything but french fries during their first trimester. I thought they must be exaggerating – it can’t be that bad! Boy, do I get it now!
I was lucky enough not to get physically sick this pregnancy, but up until about 15 weeks I woke up feeling like I was about to. Nothing sounded good to eat . . . except for pizza, french fries, pasta (and most other carbs). Cardio exercise made everything worse. And honestly, I just didn’t want to do much at all. Needless to say, I was desperate for remedies. Below is a video I made about the remedies that worked best for me, as well as a list of some of the products that I had success with, depending on the day.
I took Dicelgis, but I highly recommend you doing your research and speaking with your doctor about it.
This was magical for me. I love and recommend Ricardo Miranda, La.C, of Westside Acupuncture in Los Angeles.
