Sick and Preggie

I was sick the days leading up to 2010, so Happy Belated New Year's everyone! I was already experiencing 24/7 sickness, why they call it Morning Sickness... who knows? But just as the new year was approaching I picked up some sort of stomach bug that caused me to throw up anything that hit my stomach, even a Tylenol came right up, and water barely stayed down. It was quite a challenge to keep myself hydrated and I gave up food for a few days, it didn't stay down anyway. I lost 3 pounds, but not the diet I would recommend to anyone. It has all come back since then anyways. Being dehydrated and without any food in your body isn't fun.

I knew it wouldn't last too long, the family that passed it on (thank you for that) had said they were sick throwing up for 3 days and then it stopped. So when I started doing that I decided to wait it out for 3 days and not freak out and go to the Doctor. I figured there wasn't going to be much I could do about it, or that a Doctor could do besides tell me to get plenty of rest and keep hydrated. I did call my OBGYN office and talk to a nurse about how to handle the queasiness. She had a few helpful tips, not much though. During these days my daughter was sick with a sinus infection. It didn't slow down her at all though. I just had to give her some anti-biotics.

I am glad that I have my in-laws living two houses down the street. They were able to watch her while I was held up in bed for a couple days. The last day I was sick, new year's eve, I threw up one final time after KD got up from her nap, the in-laws took her so I could rest, and then I ate some pretzels and Ginger ale, took a shower, and then for dinner decided to eat whatever I wanted. I thought, "Screw just eating bland foods and drinking liquids!" I wanted to order a pizza, sounded so good, but found a Lean Cuisine Lasagna in the freezer and decided to go with that. I ate it and kept it down and felt better since then. That was day 3 of the stomach bug and I was amazed that it left as quickly as it came! So glad that is over.

Now I am in my 8th week of pregnancy and I am still queasy almost the whole day, but nothing feels as bad as that stomach thing. So I must say I don't have too much to complain about. I will be visiting my OBGYN Friday and hope that he will have something to give me to cope with the queasies over the next month. Can't wait for week 14 to arrive... should be done with the sick and preggie part by then (knock on wood). I only had some mild sickness when pregnant with KD, lasted from when I woke up until about 10am at work. So, maybe this time I am having a boy? Now I am curious about the sex of this baby. I don't think I will be able to wait until the day he or she is born to find out.

Hope you all had a great New Years, I was happy that the 1st of the year came with no more sour stomach! Yay!

With my first pregnancy I was so intensely sick that I lost 30 lbs in one month. They called it heperemesis gravidarum. At the time they prescribed me dilectin. So, maybe mention that to the OB? It did not work for me but have heard it was great for other friends. Also, after 7months of this I found the ONLY cure to it (For me at least), was to ONLY eat what I felt like eating. Sorry, this was not a cure, but it sure as heck reduced the sickness. Even if it wasn't the healthiest thing on earth it would settle my stomach enough to let me get down my prenatal vitamins.

Good luck with it all! I hope that helps somehow.

Wow, what does the Asian writing say? I wish I had a translator.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I am feeling a bit better lately. Only a few more weeks left of the first trimester and hopefully will feel normal again.
