I know what you mean about being the one that makes sure everything gets done, I chose to take on that role in my marriage, but it does work for both of us seeing as I'm rather a control freak and my DH felt like he couldn't rely on his ex to do anything so it's a nice change for him having an active partner.
Just lately though I've been afraid of forgetting important things due to baby brain and just generally being preoccupied, so I've given specific tasks to DH to be in charge of. Maybe you could try something similar?

All good with the beta - rising nicely. It's now at 40000. No wonder I am feeling ill! My scan is booked in for 2nd September.
Arlais and Wish - what brand is your ginger tea that seems to work so well? Might have to hunt some down!

I'm using a brand called High Living. It's an organic herbal tea, I'm pretty sure I just picked it up in Woolworths. It's not really strong which I like, and it's got just a hint of lemon. I've actually found today that dried apricots have been helping keep the nausea at bay for most of the afternoon

Magic I use twinnings, (its what we get at work) its a lemon, ginger blend. I make a warm cup in the morning and slowly slip all day even once it goes cold its quiet nice (IMO)
When I was in hospital they recommended DH bringing anything ginger in as the nausea was unbearable, even gingernut biscuits!

Great to hear rtkirk - i'm sure it was a amazing moment! I can't wait for my scan!
Good luck tomorrow Arlais!

I found crystallized ginger helped initially, but I've gone off it a bit now.
The other thing to try is anything minty, even some chewing gum can be helpful.
The best thing I have found though is to be grazing constantly throughout the day. At the moment I'm eating something about every hour, just a little bit often seems to work well. I do find it weird though that my body can be feeling so seedy yet wanting food at the same time

Congrats on your scan rtkirk! So good to hear these stories. Will be thinking of you tomorrow Arlais. All the best! And Magic that beta sounds really good (not that I know what it should be!). I'm not to the nausea stage yet but it's great to get all these tips. I'm only at Week 5 - when did you (anyone) start to feel sick? I know it's a good sign and feeling sick can reduce the chance of miscarriage. So far the only symptom I have is tiredness. It just started yesterday and I can definitely feel I'm getting worn out quicker and I am much sleepier than normal. My husband is very supportive. He does more research than me when something strange is going on and is constantly telling me to rest 'you're trying to make a placenta!! You need sleep' is what he is telling me at the moment. But it's kind of in his character to look after me if I'm not well so it's not unusual. I'm not sure I'd be as supportive if the roles were reversed. Anyway, I'll be scouring this website tomorrow to see your update rt!!

Congrats rtkirk.. That must be amazing to hear the heartbeat!! I can't wait
All the best tomorrow Arlais.. Looking forward to hearing about it
DH has been really supportive... I'm only week 4 but have been tired and only the last couple of days I've been a little bit off.. A little nauseous. He's been helping with dinner and he even did the vacuuming the other day!! How long will it last is the question? Lol

Thinking of you today Arlais.
AFM feeling so dodgy this morning. On the peppermint tea. Hoping it perks me up. Of course I would go through this and worse to have a healthy baby. But I still get to complain
