Raspberrry and a brick

First the good news!!!

Week 8: Raspberry

Your baby is growing like mad, putting on about a millimeter every day and continuing to straighten out in the trunk. Though you can't feel it yet, baby is moving those little arms, legs and (now only slightly) webbed fingers and toes like crazy.
Yay for a raspberry:-)
Now, the "brick" part...I feel like poo-poo. I've been trudging along the last 10 days or so, feeling fairly ok. Like I've said before, I tend to get nauseaus in the afternoon. That has started scooting up earlier in the day. Today, I got out of bed, felt fine, walked Sierra. While in the shower I started feeling a little dizzy, but was ok. Once out of the shower, I leaned over to wrap my hair in a towel and the room started spinning. I said Oh God or something like that and ran to the bathroom, just in case. Nothing came up, but the room was still spinning. I managed to get dressed, eat a bagel and get to work. I still feel like poo. Extremely light-headed.
Just talked to Dr. K's nurse. She wants me to come by and have my BP checked today. My BP is on the low side normally, so they want to make sure it is ok.
That's my story. Me and little raspberry are just truckin' along:-)

Thinking of you and your little raspberry :) Hope the dr can figure out something to help.

Hooray for a raspberry! :-)Hope you feel better soon. I feel a little light headed now and then when I bend down too much or get up too quickly. Eating and also drinking a lot of water usually help me. I swear lemonade works wonders for me too. I am not sure why.

Sorry you feel yucky. Early on, I had graham crackers on my bedside table and would eat a few before I even got up. It seemed to help. Make sure you are drinking lots of water!! (And ditto the pp. Something about lemons is supposed to help with nausea!)

You should try to eat something before you even get out of bed. Low blood sugar might be the culprit for the dizzies. Otherwise, you and raspberry have a good weekend!
