It's not even morning

Nausea, originally uploaded by ember.
So I'm in week 14. I've survived the first trimester, and I should be in the clear for a few months, right? Right?!

Instead since I got a cold a few weeks back, I've started having bursts of "morning" sickness. Usually in the afternoon. I can keep breakfast down, but lunch? Not a chance. Dinner? Hit or miss. There's nothing quite like horribly vomiting while at work and then having to go back to your desk and attempt productivity. Seriously, business need to give pregnant chicks extra time off so we can just get the hell out of the office when this stuff hits.

Now, I WAS given some anti nausea meds by my ob when I went to see her. The genius thing on my part is that today, while my stomach rolls, I have not a one of those little magic pills with me. Naturally. I'm suddenly hoping the kid gets Wes' intellect instead of mine.

Sonogram #2

As cool as it was seeing  Nooblet for the first time, I have to say that our second sonogram this past Wednesday was far more exciting. We got to hear the heartbeat again, but this time instead of just being a shapeless little white spot, we could see a wriggling baby-shaped Nooblet!

Yep, Nooblet did some flailing and dancing for us this time around, which was pretty exciting. There was something so neat and so comforting just about seeing the movement. Next up? Our "pink or blue" sonogram at the end of April. I can't wait!

The Sleep Swing

I've been very, very lucky. I haven't really battled with morning sickness (some light nausea, but no crippling puking, knock on wood). I haven't felt all that bad, haven't had awful cramps... it's really been a pretty mild ride.

The only thing that does plague me is the tired. I'll be up and fine and working and then all of a sudden I'll be all but falling asleep in my chair. And given that I work a good half hour away from home and thus can't just pop home for a quick nap, that sort of means slapping myself out of it and trying to prop my eyelids open so I can do another four hours (or however long) of work before I get to go home and collapse.

Since I'm trying to be a good little pregnant lady and minimize my caffeine intake, my normal solution of just grabbing a Mountain Dew is sort of out of the question. Any suggestions on anything that's worked for any of you pregnant (or formerly pregnant) chicas out there that I might try?
