Pregnancy Update #6: Goodbye Nausea?

My nausea has taken a big dip most days and I'm feeling human again. I hate to jinx it but the last few days I really haven't been nauseated at all. I have never had this happen before 16 weeks in a pregnancy, and usually closer to 20 weeks. It's wonderful! I'm still dealing with a major food aversion to chocolate and for the 3rd time in a row couldn't eat pancakes. Other foods are hit or miss. I've been loving hummus in several flavors - plain, garlic, roasted red pepper, and cilantro jalapeƱo.

My energy levels have been all over the place. Some days I have a lot of energy and get tons done. Other days I'm napping mid-afternoon just to make it to bedtime. Or napping mid-morning!

I still haven't gained any weight. Don't tell that to my belly though! Here is my view looking down toward my feet. Or where my feet should be. I'm 14 weeks pregnant now and called my obstetrician today to get on his schedule. My first appointment isn't until mid-September when I am 20 weeks pregnant. I'm going to continue having my hypothyroidism monitored locally by my endocrinologist. It's just easier to hop over to the local hospital for lab work every 4 weeks and I'll have continuity of care post-baby too.

I'm not having any new symptoms. Yes, I am counting my blessings!


  1. I think it is hilarious that you can eat spicy hummus but not pancakes. :) Here's hoping the nausea stays gone!!!

    I'm totally amazed by how casual you can be about seeing your OB. I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum--having had an ultrasound and blood work (because I've been an old mom for my past 4 babies) done at 10 weeks revealing all kinds of info. You're patient. :)

  2. Yay for no more nausea!!! Although, it's interesting that you can eat hummus but not pancakes ... maybe it's more of a texture thing right now.

    Love all of these pregnancy updates!!!
