First time for everything

Last night around 9 p.m. I started feeling not so good. After chillin' on the can for a while it became clear that I was in for a very long and painful night. I was glued to the toilet and hovered over a big white bowl for about an hour during each of six episodes. Finally around 4:30 a.m. the puking stopped and I was able to return to bed for a solid chunk of sleep. I am so grateful I have never puked during my pregnancies until now. I don't know how women live with constant "morning" sickness?! Not only did I get dehydrated to high heaven I started having contractions too. Luckily they have subsided and I am now able to walk around rather than shuffle and both eat and drink. The irony of the whole situation happened this morning around 9 a.m.. Church started (rendering me friendless for 3 hours in case of an emergency), Jack woke up and Michael's pager went off. That left me and Jack to fend for ourselves all afternoon while Michael went to the hospital pointlessly. (Don't even get me started on that situation) Let's just say Barney saved my life today. Sad and it makes me feel like a terrible mom but true. Here's to a better tomorrow and hopefully an even better Tuesday because we are supposed to fly to Texas to visit my parents. Keep your fingers crossed peeps.

Oh man I am so sorry! It sounds like more of the stomach flu than morning sickness at this stage in your pregnancy. But I have heard of it coming back in the third trimester. But I could be totally wrong. Not fun at all, I rarely throw up, but when I do I hate it so much.
Don't feel bad you did your best, seriously what else could you have done, I say as long as you both lived through the day like that you are good to go.

Oh I so do not feel bad for you! I puked 25 times in two months!

Ok. To be a little less harsh, I do feel bad for the up all night puking that much in a row. I did that one night and cried through the whole thing. The doctor on call did not appreciate my call either.

Oh, I'm sorry!! Yuck!! Jene got the flu this weekend I was terrified that I would get sick and not be able to take care of Eric...I can't imagine being prego and sick and trying to take care of Eric!! I hope you are feeling better!

Camille said...

So, are you back yet? I can't believe you had such an awful day before vacation and especially while your great friends were all at church. Sorry we were no help. I just assumed you had already left town. We gotta get back to sewing--have you seen all that Lili has done? She's been going to town!
