My new best friend

I think I had about 1 minute of morning sickness when I was pregnant with the girls and that one minute was probably created in my mind because I wanted to feel something to know that I was still pregnant and everything was okay.  I even told my friend Nina that I wanted morning sickness because I was just so worried all the time and if I was sick, then I knew my hormones were being all crazy.

I'm trying to be a little bit more relaxed this time around because I know if something is going to happen, then well its going to happen whether or not I just sit and worry.  I didn't wish for any nausea this time, but it is definitely here in full force.  I haven't thrown up at all yet (thank goodness) and have been eating a ton of saltine crackers, gummy bears, and ginger ale.  At my appointment on Tuesday the Nurse Practitioner I saw asked how I was feeling and I said not good.  She asked if I wanted a prescription for something (which at the time I didn't really need) and I said that it might be a good idea to have some anti nausea meds just in case.  I thought for sure I didn't want to be caught in a situation at work where I was puking my guts out and not be able to do my job.

So anyways, I filled the Zofran and I'm pretty glad that I did.  I couldn't really eat much today and I think that was part of what was making me feel so sick as well.  So, I took some zofran and was able to eat some yogurt and an apple for dinner.  Brian's not home to cook me something so I guess I'm just stuck digging in the frig for what I can find :)  (Ok, yes, I could cook something myself, but its 9pm and I just don't feel like it.)

The girls are doing great.... Charlotte is just getting over some type of stomach bug that had her sick for just about a week.  I was worried about her for a while as she wouldn't hardly drink or eat anything at all.  But, today she woke up, drank her bottle and decided to feel much better.  So glad!  I didn't want to have to take her to the doctor again... I think the ped's office thinks I'm a hypochondriac... or whatever you would call it when you think your kids are sick all the time :)

I'm 9 weeks pregnant and if I get the nausea feeling it's more likely to happen in the afternoon, so much for the quotable "morning sickness." I got a prescription too, but haven't had to use it. In fact, I'm feeling less sick and it's making me nervous! How strange is that, but I think you will understand based on your post :)

I finally came to terms with my pregnancy and "what will be will be" - and me not worrying won't help the situation. My doctor told me a year and a half ago that we had a 2 percent chance of getting pregnant.... just found out last week that I'm pregnant... joyful, hopeful and nervous :)
