Well we've made it to 11 weeks and I am finally starting to feel like a normal person again. I had some pretty crazy morning (all day) sickness for awhile there and there were days when I really didn't want to even get out of bed. I never had many symptoms with my own pregnancies so this has thrown me for a loop. I was starting to get used to puking multiple times a day. Not that I liked it (I actually LOATHE throwing up) but the more I did it, the easier it became. Almost like second nature. Yuck. I was a pretty terrible house wife and mom for a few weeks there. My kids were helping themselves to food (they're 3 and 1) and watching Sesame Street while I lay on the couch all day long. I felt really horrible about this of course. My poor husband would get up with our kids at 5:30am (they're early risers), get them dressed, fed, etc. and then off to work he'd go. He'd come home, make dinner, clean the house and give the boys baths and get them ready for bed. I was useless. I could tell he was getting frustrated but he never said a word about it.
I love that man.
But things have started to get better. I stopped my meds last Thursday and since Friday, I haven't puked!! It's like a record! I am starting to actually cook meals again and my house doesn't look like the toy and dust bunny fairies threw up all over.
I can only hope that the rest of the pregnancy goes more smoothly!
