12 weeks!

Posted: January 30th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Misc. | 1 Comment »

We made it to 12 weeks.

It’s been a roller coaster so far, that’s for sure. At least for me anyways. I suppose everything seems the same, normal, A-OK on the surface, but it’s a different experience for me.

I started off really sick, all the time. We got that under control with massive doses of Zofran about 3 weeks ago. Slowly that total control of the nausea and vomiting has gone away. Now the vomiting is controlled (for the most part) but the nausea is constant. This past week I had a few days where I was really struggling with being up and moving around. The world does not stop for a sick pregnant woman.

When you are sick, everyone likes to remind you that “it all ends around 12 weeks!”

Sure. If you have regular morning sickness it probably does end around 12 weeks. If you have regular morning sickness you probably aren’t losing weight and sucking down Zofran like your life depends on it.

So I’m at 12 weeks. We’ll see what happens now. Things seem to be ramping up again and I’m starting to figure out ways to cope if I have to endure this for another 28 weeks. 28 weeks just sounds so far away! The worst part is knowing that I have to keep looking for a new way to feel better- because eventually everything stops working.

Thankfully I have the best husband in the world who is totally supportive and willing to take on the boys at night. The boys are at their best (if their best= craziest) from about 5 to 7 every night. It seems we’re in another stage of teething and Lincoln has finally found his voice! Screaming ensues often- just because it’s fun and they like to hear themselves, or because their teeth hurt (it’s hard to tell sometimes). Thankfully they go down for the night without a fight.

I try to remind myself that this is only 40 weeks. That it will have an end and if it’s anything like last time as soon as this baby is born I will feel like an entirely different person and I’ll forget I ever felt horrible. It’s hard to keep that in mind some days.

And really, at the end we get a new little baby- who from here until our 20 week ultrasound will be referred to as Little Mystery.

    I hope you feel better soon and it doesn't last as long as it did last time…
