Morning and happy Sunday ladies!
Glad the weather is feeling a bit better is weekend in Sydney!
I know what you ladies mean - it's just not a nice feeling to feel sick from hunger, and then eat, and then feel sick from eating. My nausea only eased off at about 13w but it wasn't too bad for me. And yes @onedaymaybebaby, I feel more sick after a shower and I have always wondered why! Maybe it's the heightened sense of smell, etc. Even now, I tend to dry retch air when I shower after dinner - the reflux feeling isn't fun at all. 😷
What I have found to be helpful is to break my meals into 2. I eat half my usual portion and then get hungry in about 2 hours and I eat again before I start feeling sick. So far it's worked better that way. Although it is sometimes hard when I'm at work and I'm meetings so I try to have a snack bar with me that I can quickly munch on when desperate. Hope it doesn't get too uncomfortable for you both! 😊
Makes perfect sense about the harmony test and gender identification @OneOfTheseDays! It would be like striking gold if you do get a boy and a girl! That would so awesome! I guess there are still only 2 ways to go - either overwhelming XX or XY so for sure they can say 2 boys or 2 girls, or not enough to determine which means like a boy and a girl?! Haha! 😄
As for the Doppler, yes, temptation is there but my experience having tried it a few times that it's more misses than hits, so either I'm really bad at using it or it's just seriously a test of patience. I know some people love it and found it useful but I'm not a fan. Think I'll hold on to it until almost a month is up (I have paid for it already anyway) and then return it after my 19w scan. 😝 still can't feel bub move at 16w4d, I'm more keen for that to happen soon!
