Week 8

I weighed myself this morning, and I'm down 5 pounds.  I'm super worried!  I've been throwing up all hours of the day and night, and the gagging, nauseous feeling never goes away.  I've missed 3 and half days of work.  I called the doctor's office yesterday, and the on-call midwife gave me some over the counter remedies (which aren't working) and told me to go to the ER if I get bad enough.  She can't prescribe anything until I'm an established patient, and my first appointment is next week.  She didn't even offer to get me in sooner!  I don't want to go to the ER because I have really crappy insurance, and it will cost a fortune!

I'm really depressed, and I'm homesick for Saranac Lake.  The doctor up there would have seen me IMMEDIATELY for something like this.  Thank goodness my mother-in-law is retired now.  She came over yesterday to take care of me, and she's coming back today.  I can't even be a good mom because I'm so sick.

I really think this baby might be twins, just based on how sick I am.  I hope not, because it would be overwhelming.

I really just wish I could feel better...

Week 6

Is there a stealthy way to vomit at work?  If there is, I haven't figured it out!  Seriously, after 5 trips to the bathroom in a two hour period, people are going to start wondering what's wrong with me!

My pants are being held together by a rubber band - well, more specifically, one of Toots hair ties.

I feel liked crap!  I know it's worth it, but UGH!  I just want to crawl in to bed and not come out until the next trimester!
