Dear Blog Readers,
First, a huge THANK YOU to all of you that have left us such kind words and congratulations on this latest pregnancy. I, especially, cherish each and every comment and plan on visiting each of you personally to say thanks.
Second, suffice it to say that my blogging has been, at best, sporadic since November. While it can be attributed to several different issues of malaise, the worst culprits have been insomnia and nausea/vomiting, which I have decided, go hand-in-hand. For weeks now I have been suffering in silence (okay, I’m not so silent around my poor husband), but I have been reticent to blog about these problems. There’s just something unsettling about listening to the infertile one, now pregnant, complaining about symptoms.
Sooooo, I’ll just say that there’s been lots of puking and not very much sleeping going on. Until.Last.Night.
Meet, my new friend, Zofran. Zofran and I actually go way back…all they way to my pregnancy with Mary when I was still puking at 20-weeks. Really, all I need are a few tablets to settle down my stomach and allow myself to regain my composure! (It’s also my go-to-friend after surgery…I’m an anesthesia-puker, which is always ugly after c-sections!)
After the okay by my OBs office, my husband was able to bring home my prescription last night and I actually kept down a bowl of soup. I SLEPT through the entire night and took a 2nd tablet this morning. I have since kept down breakfast. (I think my weight-loss plan is coming to an end! LOL) I have also done more housework in 2 hours than I have in the past 2-months.
Regardless of how I have felt, life has continued on. I have still been SIMPLIFYING (i.e. getting rid of crap) and compliments of my parents generosity at Christmas, I have a beautiful new woman’s writing desk that I can’t wait to share with you. (I love “grown-up” furniture…you know the non-fiberboard stuff that you don’t actually have to put together, but is DELIVERED to your house!!!)
Finally, Happy Groundhog’s Day! While we are not happy that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and that we might have to endure six more weeks of winter, Mary, Benjamin and I are eager to start making homemade valentines for the Grandmas, classmates, teachers, etc.
While I’m still feeling good, we are off to Michaels. I will definitely be by sometime today and/or tomorrow to say hello and thanks!
