I have trypophobia. The last few weeks have been hellish after a throwaway comment by my NCT leader about newborn's skin needing to become 'seeded' with bacteria to build up their resistance to germs. I would actually live in the shower at the moment if I could, and cover myself in anti-bacterial wash, but I am trying very, very, very hard not to let this become a major issue as I'm well aware it could spiral. Hoping it goes away soon as my skin is crawling constantly.
I had bad morning sickness, and went through a phase of finding it hard to swallow tablets and stuff, just had a really bad gag reflex. But one thing I couldn't bear was the kids at work (secondary schools) chewing pen kids in their mouths, it just made me gag seeing it! Sounds crazy now, but that was the oddest thing!!
MIL's little dog - as sweet as she is and I love the dog - lying on the sofa. Where I planned to lay baby. I'm ok and accepting of germs but literally watched the dog all day the other month (see WAY before baby was going to actually be using the sofa himself!!) and whenever she'd sit on the sofa I would shift her off of move a blanket under her. Cushions can only be hoovered or wiped - no deep cleaning!
I am currently 12 weeks and quite big already - every time I look at maternity wear in shops, I feel violently sick. The baby is wanted and my second, so not that anxious. It has happened five times now - even when i look online.
In my previous pregnancy, I had no symptoms until heartburn at 34 weeks. This time I had nausea, but it has cleared - excect for the shopping experience. It's so weird - as a last resort DH is going to have to buy them for me.
Valancy Taking tablets makes me gag almost every time now, and NEVER has before pregnancy. I had morning sickness too, but while that stopped at about 14 weeks, the tablet gagging has just carried on (I'm 23 weeks now). It's got so bad that I actually threw up a few days ago, just from trying to swallow my Folic Acid tablet!
Aldi. The smell made me feel sick. Even the thought of the smell made me feel sick! I couldn't go in until after ds was born! Also the "smell" of the fridge. There was no smell as such but I used to gag every time I opened it. DP thought it v funny
Scan photos!! They make me want to chunder, in fact I often do.
I think it stems from my first DD - I was so nervous due to many, many mc's, and I had dreadful hyperemesis, that I was a ball of nerves and vomit for my first scan. Every time I see a scan pic it seems to tele transport me back there and I wretch , even with this pregnancy (DC3).
