And Here We Go Again.

I was doing so good yesterday until 3pm. It's gone downhill sharply since then. The nausea started, then I guess I didn't eat enough dinner, then I tried eating a second dinner...then my body didn't like that and well, my toilet has been my best friend ever since.

I've been throwing up on and off since 10 pm last night, including all night.

Waiting for 5:30 so that Hubs can come home to watch The Boy so that I can go to the hospital and get fluids.

My only wish is that I had someone to bring me, I shouldn't drive in this condition.

That, and it's really boring watching the iv drip. (No knitting since I can't knit when this sick.)


How many more months of this?

Battle Weary.

As expected, this pregnancy has been kicking my ass.

Seriously, I have bruises.

And drugs.
The drugs are to combat some of the nausea that I've had 24-7. How do I know that I was sick 24 hours a day? I would dream that I was barfing or seasick. So gross. And no escape.

The drugs cause drowsiness, which would be fine if I didn't have a 3 year old to mind. And I'm still puking, which is worrisome. I'm going to give the drugs another day or two in my body and see if it improves.
I had the pleasure of an ER trip last Sunday. I was spotting very heavy after doing housework. It went away eventually, but not before a really embarrassing (I think for him and me) internal exam by a male ER doctor. He was very gentle- it was the first exam by a male doctor ever for me- yikes.
All that time in the ER meant knitting! YAY!
5 Hour Baby sweater that took 2 weeks. Love it though! It's for my friend from middle school's baby to be. Robyn and I lost touch when she moved out of town our freshman year. She contacted me on Facebook in May and we've been chatting ever since!
Next up:

Model knitting for Schaefer.

I should get cracking on it!

So, what have I missed in the last couple of weeks?
