I hope you all haven't abandoned me yet. It sucks checking my e-mail and not seeing comments from my cyber friends. I want to get back into the swing of things but it's been so hard. Most days I want to snuggle in my bed and sleep for hours.
On the days that I have to work, it takes nothing short of a miracle to get my queasy butt in the shower. I'm fine when I have to teach classes but it zaps me of whatever energy I have left. For the past two weeks, every day that I get home from work I lay down on the couch and stay there for at least two hours. My poor, wonderful, understanding daughter has been awesome. She sits with me on the couch and watches a video or goes into her playroom and plays by herself. I can't believe how accomodating she has been. She even asks if she can rub my tummy to make me feel better. I just want to eat her up.
My husband, surprisingly, has been just as awesome. He comes home and does whatever I ask. Laundry, dinner, taking J out somewhere so I can get some rest, food shopping ~ you name it, he's done it. And he hasn't complained once about not getting laid in over a week. Every time I think about sex I want to throw up. Not because of him, but because I feel so lousy.
My only saving grace in the last few days has been something called Morning Sickness Magic. Ever heard of it? You put a tablespoon in whatever you're drinking and it takes away the nausea. It's got a bunch of herbs like ginger and vitamins, too. It has worked wonders for me. The only trouble is I hate the way it tastes and you're supposed to take it 4 times a day. Still, it works so I just hold my nose and chug it.
I go back to the doctor next Wednesday and hopefully we'll be able to hear a strong heartbeat and he'll tell me that I'm NOT having twins.
I hope you're all doing well!!
