Weekly Loss: 1.6 lbs.
Total Weight Loss: 19 lbs.
I’d like to report that I am well, but I’m still feeling down and on the mend. Hence, why I missed last weeks Mamavation post. I was out 4 days from work and that still wasn’t enough. The infection I had seems to be gone, but I’m still suffering from some nausea (praying it’s from the antibiotics) and some post-nasal drip (generally causes me nausea).
I’m almost to my first big goal 20 pounds. The game is changing though as a revelation has been made in the past couple weeks. I’m no longer allowed to “try” to lose weight. My doctor has advised me that it’s okay if I do, but he doesn’t want me making any effort to do so. Why you ask?, we will be adding to the Denton clan in September. I have lost significant weight since finding out, but several factors I feel are at play: 1. I’ve been sick, 2. my diet is significantly improved, and 3. I exercise regularly. This all adds up and makes sense. Relieved to know that it’s okay.
I’m praying once I’m through this round of antibiotics (amoxicillin), one I haven’t taken in years, all the nausea will subside. My first pregnancy was a dream. No nausea I can remember and just some heartburn in the last month. I know each pregnancy can be different, I’m just hoping in the area of comfort it doesn’t. I could have gone 2-3 weeks past my due date and been on cloud 9. I feel for the ladies that have nausea for the length of their pregnancy. Mine’s all day and it’s a real downer on my energy and desire to get anything done. Before taking the antibiotic I was fine.
What are your tricks for getting past the nausea?
