Next Post: June or July

Hello dear Readers:

The completely inaccurately named "morning sickness" has set in and I am now laughing that I used to be worried about being tired. I'm totally sick and throwing up, and if I follow patterns from past pregnancies, this should last another 2 months at least. Also, if past pregnancies hold true, this baby is a boy, because Esther, bless her little heart, never caused me to throw up. Today I've thrown up three times. I can't believe I've gone and let this happen to myself AGAIN. Ha Ha, just kidding Baby #4, I love you!!!

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that you're so sick! I'll try to come for at least a week or two in late May-early June to help out.
Love,
Buggie

That must be awful. I always forget how bad barfing is until I have the stomach flu again. I feel bad that I'm not coming out to visit. I would have been excited to be able to help you. I hope this passes soon.

Sorry I am not there to take care of you!!! Pregnant throwing up is the worst. At least when you have the flu and throw up you feel a little better for awhile. Preggers you just keep feeling crappy and there is no break.

But as you assured me a few months ago, it won't last forever, and in those miserable moments when it seems like it will, you're not being rational. :-)

Have you tried the vitamin-sleeping pill combo? I have a friend that takes something (I don't know what) that does help. Her, anyway.

Oh no!! I hate throwing up! I totally feel your pain. Just let everything go that's in any way related to housework etc. Just take care of yourself!
When I was pregnant this last time I took the anti-nauseas pill Zofran and I highly recommend it. I stopped throwing up and could function again, but it's really, really expensive.
Call me if you need anything :)

I'm so sorry about all the upchucking! Does it last all day? If you need help with anything at all, call me. I'll even come and clean again if that's what would help you out the most. Hope you feel better soon!

Oh, I so remember the days when you worked in the library and had to empty your own garbage can multiple times a day so as not to offend the janitor!
Here's to hoping that his one will be easier (or at least shorter lived) than the others!

No fun! Thank you for all the ideas you left me when I was having the yuckies...I posted them all on my pregnancy blog in hopes that all the other poor moms out there might get a little break. Mother nature can be fierce sometimes though!

Morning sickness really really sucks. Sorry to hear its so bad. Let me know if I can do anything to help. Like take your sweet little girl for a morning so you can sleep for a while.

CONGRATS!!! I didn't even know you were pregnant. Remember when we were still living in Ann Arbor and you totally thought you were done with the two boys?!! HAHA!!! That is so great. I can't to meet you "son" :)
