The BiB Family is Growing

After 6 months of trying to conceive baby #2, my husband received orders to deploy on rather short notice. We decided to put our family plans on the back burner until he returned home. Well, we were over the moon with excitement to find out the following week that I was already pregnant! Yep, that's right. We are adding another baby to the BiB family in January 2013!

While this is a very exciting and joyful time for me, it's also a very nauseous time. I had some morning sickness with my first, but nothing like this! I've been nauseous 24/7 for weeks now. I don't even remember what not being nauseous feels like. Very few things sound appetizing enough to eat, and even those things can turn on me in an instant. I keep the little I do eat down...most days. The mint flavored Preggie Pops do help a lot when a smell hits me wrong or something, but it's not realistic to have a Preggie Pop in my mouth 24/7. After a recon Facebook post on our BiB page, I have decided to take some suggestions and go pick up some sea sick wrist bands. I'll keep you posted on how they help! Any other tips? And did you moms with more than one LO find yourself more queasy with subsequent pregnancies?

"And did you moms with more than one LO find yourself more queasy with subsequent pregnancies?" YES! Hardly anything with #1 and a FULL T1 of it with this girl!

Chelsea suggested EMAB's Morning Wellness tea; I made it, iced it and drank it `round the clock and it helps a WHOLE lot. ;)

I've had some of the tea and it was helpful, but I think iced would be better for the season. Great idea. Maybe I could just leave a pitcher in the fridge!

Congrats, and yes. Queasy with number two and not at all with the first. No tips, I just tried to suck it up thinking it was always almost over. I lasted almost the whole time though.
