    How are you feeling? Between the pregnancy and altering your meds, you have a lot going on at once.

    I'm doing OK. My energy level is coming back a bit now that I'm adjusting to significantly less caffeine. (I was an addict. Still am but I'm finally done with withdrawals for the most part I think.)

    The lack of pain meds has been a trip. I wasn't on opioids or anything so there was no withdrawals but I forgot how painful lupus and RA were without any kind of pain meds (other than Tylenol).

    The nausea has started but luckily it is just killing my appetite rather than making me sick (for now...). Eating has been a struggle though.

    Nausea is supposed to be a good sign. At least that's what I kept telling myself while I had my "all day" sickness ; )

    I didn’t consider the pain you would have. So sorry to hear that. I know you realize it’s worth it, but still.

    Just wondering if topical some topical things may be helpful in minimizing pain while not harming baby. That may be something to inquire about with your great pre-natal team. I'm sure they've had other patients with conditions that benefit from pain minimization. Maybe hypnosis, meditation, accupressure and other integrative therapies as well? Just trying to think outside the box.

    So glad baby and you are doing well and your dear dog is being protective!

    @himom I'm going in for a massage tomorrow and what I can use for pain treatments is number 1 on my list to ask my MFM. I'm open to alternative pain treatments because I know this isn't going to get any better as the pregnancy goes on lol.

    Do not forget the old but tried and true--Put a seltzer or 7-up next to your bed so that it is flat in the morning along with popcorn so it is stale. Eat and drink without lifting your head. Wait about 30 minutes then get up. :)
    My "sickness" was for too too long and hit at midnight.

    Thank you all! I'm not sure if I should start a new thread or just continue this. It feels weird to start a new thread about this but the title here is super misleading now lol.

    @MaineLonghorn any chance I could beg my way to getting a thread title change? 😂

    Also I'm getting ready to travel quite extensively in September. New Orleans next week, across the state middle of September, and Disneyworld and Orlando Studios at the end of Sept. I'm kind of nervous but at least I'm traveling with/to people each time but I'm still nervous.

    Oh my goddess @MaineLonghorn @romanigypsyeyes I thought ML meant what would you like your offspring to be! I completely forgot about the conventional boy-or-girl question people sometimes ask and went right to "a baby?" :)
