Congrats on a great u/s and the heart rate being so strong, that's a huge plus!!
I am 10 weeks 2 days today and my nausea has gotten much worse (I have heard it peaks at 9 or 10 weeks?). For the past 2 weeks, I wake up at 2-4am with it and the only thing that helps me is to EAT- so I do dry whole wheat toast with slight grape jelly, for some reason that helps ge rid of it almost immediately for me. I never know when it's going to hit and when it does, oh boy! No heaving, no vomiting- just nausea, on and off all day.
I love love LOVE almonds but they were very constipating for me personally, then my Dr told me that they indeed can cause constipation. As soon as I stopped, my constipation went away and (knock wood) I haven't had a problem in that department since. I miss them so
Also, my OB told me the constipation makes the nausea worse, and it's okay to take colace 2x a day. I personally have not taken colace at all, but I know it's okay to if it gets bad again. Upping water helped me tremednously when I went through a bad bad time with constipation at about 4-5 weeks. Though when you're nauseaus- the last thing you want is water, I know! Hopefully yours will pass! FEEL BETTER!
