Actually, that's not entirely true. Yes, nausea has begun as of week 7, which I am pretty excited about, but it is not what I expected. I do not feel like throwing up, really. It's more of a dull sick feeling that lasts all day and night at a constant level. Actually, it's most annoying at night because when I get up to pee in the middle of the night, I feel it right away and then I can't fall asleep because it's always there nagging me.
I sometimes think that I've lost my appetite because thinking about pretty much any food makes me gag a little. But as soon as I put the food that is least disgusting at the moment in my mouth, it tastes great, and I finish the whole thing. In fact, just now I ate my entire lunch at only 9:30am even though I continue to feel this constant sickness.
I suspect it might get a lot worse in the next few weeks, which is both scary and exciting. I didn't feel any nausea with my first pregnancy which ended around week 8, so this is encouraging. I wonder though if this is what it's like for other people... google here I come!
