Vomitus maximus.


From 7 pm on Friday night until 2:15 am, I threw up every 20-25 minutes like clockwork.

I stopped needing to pee. When I do pee, it is very dark brown and smells like you would never ever believe. Friday was so awful I considered going to the hospital on Saturday.

Then I discovered that by eating every hour (by ‘eating’ I mean a couple of grapes, one veggie finger, or some jell-o) it is much more manageable. I cannot drink water though. It makes me so fucking sick it’s unbelievable.

Discovered non-caffinated tea doesn’t make me sick, though, so at least that’s getting some water in.

At work today. Have dry heaved twice this morning, once at my desk – probably to the horror of Green. Am registering with a local doctor tomorrow in the hopes of getting an appointment to see someone soon – although Christmas screws everything up.

Have the date of the first scan  – January 12. This is to determine if the pregnancy is viable. Due to the excessive sickness, I would hazard a guess that it is. It’s also to see how many kidlets there are.

This morning while trying not to faint in the shower, I moaned, ‘We’d better have twins now and then WE ARE DONE. I am NEVER doing this again.’

Coming a little out of the negativity and feeling more positive about the pregnancy, but really so uncomfortable and sick it’s hard not to just cry and feel sorry for myself. I hope the baby/babies won’t be put off the flavour orange forever, since it’s all I can seem to keep down.

I also cannot zip my pants even an inch. These fit just fine before the baby thing. I bought a Bella Band, a big tank top like piece of fabric that you wear down low over your unzipped trousers, saving you from having to buy a bunch of new stuff too soon.

I love that Bella Band.  That’s one good thing in all of this. And it looks cool.

And I’m pregnant! Brown pee and all.

(The smell of my pee makes TMG gag.)

Thank you again for all the comments. Haven’t been online since writing the last entry, and made me feel hugged to get into work and hear from all of you. *mwah*

    glad the tea is working. have you tried drinking anything else? like sodas?? not the healthiest things in the world but some fluid in your system is better than none. maybe you could sip on a sprite?? that always helps me when i’m vomiting at least. i’ve never had kids and never plan on it though.

    message me on facebook or something. you make my workday a lot easier when I hear from you. *hugs*

    Awhile ago on my blog, I was looking for more fun things to drink & people suggested half juice, half club soda. I gave it a whirl and it is incredibly refreshing — although in my first trimester I was a tea & ginger ale freak — you may want to give it a try if some carbonation without loads of sugar sounds like a good idea :]

    I can’t wait for the pregnancy to get more pleasant for you (which has got to happen because really, you just should not be suffering so much).

      I just read on a messageboard about the half&half thing. May try it!

      Managed an entire cup of tea today, and a good portion of this fizzy glucose drink thing. Thanks for the suggestion!
