Pregnancy week 6 – All day sickness

According to the pregnancy apps on my phone I am six weeks pregnant! Half way through my first trimester.

I feel sick. All day.

Fortunately I haven’t been sick but constant nausea seems to be something I’m stuck with.

Nothing helps relieve it but certain things make it worse.

I have a superhero style sense of smell. The most rubbish of all X-Men style super skills! What am I supposed to do with this?

I can literally smell individual ingredients as I walk through China Town. This makes nausea worse because things like Durian and grease are really offensive on the nose.

I can smell my husband before he’s even walked into our room. It’s so weird.

As you can imagine taking the tube is not a pleasant experience at the moment and I have to cross the road to get by the Department Stores and their perfume counters – it’s so sickly. Blah.

I’ve heard morning sickness isn’t like food poisoning or anything like that. Throwing up doesn’t actually relieve the nausea. I really hope I don’t start puking!

It’s also worse today because I didn’t sleep until 00.30! I need 9 hours a night now and I’m being punished for only having 7.

Early night tonight!

Baby loses tadpole look and gets large black circles for eyes and passageways between the ears and nose. It’s shaped like a comma – the tail of which will become the spine. It has arm and leg buds. The heart begins to beat.
