I know, I know, it's been two weeks since I last blogged, but I have a good excuse. I have been so sick and pukey. At one point I weighed 9 pounds lighter than normal. Now, I'm just 7 pounds shy of my "normal" weight. I can say there does seem to be a light at the end of the morning sickness tunnel. I have not had to throw up for the last two days. Yay! Maybe I'm finally getting a gist of what my stomach will not tolerate or maybe one or all of the three drugs I'm taking are finally working for me. While I do still feel like crap much of the time, I can't tell you how nice it is to not have to see what I just ate come back up in the toilet.
There are only a few foods I can eat where I don't feel like I need to hang around the bathroom toilet after eating it. One is chunk light tuna out of the can. Who would have thought? I just tried it out one day after searching the pantry for something to feed my starving body and growing fetus. I remember thinking, "If this comes back up, it's not going to be good." After mixing the tiniest bit of mayo in it and slapping it on a half slice of bread with a thin slice of cheese, I ate it; oh, it was so good! I waited for the icky, fishy taste to surface in my mouth as my stomach prepared to send it back up, but it never came!
I have since had a half tuna fish sandwich just about everyday for lunch, and sometimes for dinner. I've added three pickles slices, and it's my little slice of heaven for now. The time after I have my tuna sandwich is the time where I can feel "okay" for a few minutes after I eat and not feel like I could just lay down and die. And, thanks to my funky eating habits, my kids are hooked on tuna now, too. Kylie actually requested to have a tuna sandwich for lunch today. Cooper ate all of his half-of-a-half tuna sandwich as well.
I'm hoping I can venture away from my "tried and true" morning sickness foods in the near future, but it is good to know that I can always have a tasty, healthy tuna sandwich, if nothing else!
