Ventured Out!

I just ventured outside and it was stinkin' cold!! It feels like a winter afternoon! I just walked to the mailbox and back - but yikes!!

Also, I found this website today:

Causes & Symptoms

The exact cause of morning sickness is unknown, but several factors are thought likely to contribute to the illness, including:

Postnasal drip.

Many pregnant women experience postnasal drip and/or nasal congestion, triggered by high levels of estrogen in their bloodstream. Estrogen increases the blood flow throughout the body, including the mucous membrane of the nose. This postnasal drip contributes to upset stomach in many pregnant women.

But then again I do have estrogen patches on - but didn't seem to have this issue with them when I first started taking them?????......

oh we shall see..........................

Since I didn't have morning sickness or post nasal drip through either of my prenancies, not sure how correct this is.

I thought it was when we are having to do more work for the baby - before the placenta is fully functional. Never checked it out, though...
