Nine Months of Morning Sickness and a Transverse Baby
How is it that my morning sickness can last the full nine months? While Opus has been easy on me, and I’ve suffered much less than the other children, the morning sickness is there. At some point during every day, I am overcome with nausea. Chuck pointed out to me yesterday that within an hour of the baby’s birth, I’ll feel fine. Nausea and dizziness disappear almost instantly. Immediately after the birth of my babies, I feel better than I have the entire pregnancy.
Ten days to go. My ultrasound is scheduled for 2:45 this afternoon. The goal is simply to rule out any complications that may be preventing the baby from moving into position and causing the constant flipping.
I mentioned to my midwife on Monday that I feel like at this point I have a 1 in 3 chance the baby will be head down when I go into labor. Unfortunately, she agreed with me. And since we’re planning a home birth, this makes me a bit anxious. But I’ve decided not to worry about it until after the ultrasound.
Then I get to worry all I want 🙂
