Stomach Flu
January 8, 2008

The past 15 hours or so have worn me out.  My nephew had a stomach bug last week and apparently, a full week later, I’ve got it too.  My poor brother was in the down stairs shower last night when I started throwing up in the upstairs bathroom.  Nothing like having someone flush the toilet OVER AND OVER while you are in the shower eh?  I felt bad for him this morning when I found out.  To make matters worse I haven’t cleaned the upstairs bathroom in a couple weeks so I was trying to clean the toilet, while throwing up in it.  Gross I know but what else was I supposed to do. Let this be a reminder to all of you, go clean your toilets.  You NEVER KNOW when someone might need to stick their head down there.

Everytime I’d get back to bed, right as I was drifting off to sleep the contractions would start.  Contractions would blend into cramps and at one point at 4 am I was actually just laying in bed moaning, wishing someone would just kill me!  Once the contractions and cramps would stop Uno decided to let me know that he didn’t like all the activity going on and would do martial arts or something.  So this afternoon my stomach hurts to even touch it.

I had a doctors appointment about an hour ago.  I was worried about my blood pressure since only about half of my medication has stayed down, but it’s doing fine.  I’ve lost 5 pounds since Friday however.  Imagine that.  They want me to try to keep more fluids down.  So far today I had 1/2 a protein shake, and that’s stayed down so I’m attempting room temperature Sprite now.  Wish me luck.  The worst part is my stomach is growling and the baby is kicking.  Both want real food but I’m just not that brave yet.

Movies
November 27, 2007

That seems to be taking up most of my time today.  Jeremy left me the lap top so I’ve just been laying on the couch watching movies and playing on the Internet.   I’m so thrilling!

Oh lets not forget the heartburn that has decided to start earlier and earlier this week.  I’m sure it’s because I’m down so much.  It sure doesn’t make eating sound good at all.  I know, me not eat.  SHOCKER.

Headache
September 2, 2007

For the past two days I have had a POUNDING headache.  Last night it was so bad I finally buckled and drank a 20 oz. Pepsi to see if the caffeine would help.  It did but only for a few hours.  GOOD news is that sometimes the headache dulls the pain of the sciatica!  I thought maybe I was dehydrated but I’ve been drinking up a storm of water and it’s still hanging on strong.  The joys.  I’m thinking maybe it’s being caused by a lack of good sleep?  I haven’t been able to make it through a full night without waking up about 20 times to readjust in bed for the past 5 days or so.

Jer and I have been starting to pack our apartment more and more.  I get the top things and anything closer to the ground he packs so I don’t have to bend over to do it.  Nice team work isn’t it.  We’ve also started to take things off the walls and it’s going to look pretty barren here in the next couple of weeks.

Hip Pain?!
August 20, 2007

The past few nights I haven’t been sleeping very well due to pain/pressure on my hips.  I have to constantly switch sides and it’s been driving me batty.  Apparently I’m not alone.  I don’t know about all you skinny girls out there but I found a group of Plus-sized and pregnant women out there that have the same problems.  Most of the suggestions said to use pillows to take some of the pressure off your body.  I’ve been doing that for a while now so I guess I’ll start looking for another option.

Only one week  till our next appointment!

Long time, no blog…
August 17, 2007

It’s been a while since I updated, I’m sorry.  I’ve been busy throwing up… STILL!  I thought I was getting better but baby Uno likes to tease.  I’ll feel good in the afternoon from about 1-4:30pm then I’ll feel like the fury of Hell has unleashed inside my body.  It doesn’t help that I work from 2:30-6:30pm so by the time I’m off work I just crawl into bed and read a book or try and sleep.  There have been a few good days where I’ve felt like maybe the blessed 2nd trimester ‘I feel greatness’ was coming back on but then I get hit in the face again.

My main worry right now is that I’m only eating two very small meals a day.  By small I’m taking a bowl of cereal in the morning and then maybe a few pieces of bread and a piece of fruit in the evening.  😦  I know it’s not good but I’m lucky if I keep all that down.  I’ve started to loose inches in the top part of my stomach and while I should be happy it has be a bit worried.

On a happier note, I can feel Uno moving.  It started at 13 weeks (CRAZY I know) and I thought I was imagining things but once every other day or so I can feel it still.  Really only if I’m laying in bed reading, it’ll just happen.  I’m taking this as a good sign that things are ok in there!  10 Days till our next appointment.

I Wanna Sing and Dance
August 9, 2007

All afternoon I have wanted to clean and pack.  I’ve been busting with energy but couldn’t move because I had to work.  Guess what, now I’m tired again, slightly icky and have no drive at all.  Pregnancy is fun people, so fun.  I also put on a tunic I used to wear all the time yesterday, it became painfully obvious that my stomach is no longer my own.  It’ll probably be the last time I’m able to wear it for about 10-11-12… well for a few months.

I’m going to go take a quick shower and then pack up all the books in our book shelf, motivation or not it will happen tonight.
