Picadilly Update

Well peeps, I thought I should check in. Generally I blog when I am feeling well and lengthy absences usually mean I am NOT feeling well. This is one of those times.
I am still not feeling very human at all. I am nearly 15 weeks along in my pregnancy and am not even back up to my pre-pregnancy weight yet. I will consider it a great accomplishment when I gain my first pound. I did have a prenatal appointment today and am happy and relieved to report that Picadilly by all appearances is healthy and strong. I must have a fighter in there.
I am tired of doctors and I don't feel like seeing or talking to anyone. I pretty much just want to sleep all day.
I keep hearing about those women who LOVE being pregnant and blah blah blah. I just want to kick them in the shins right now.....is that so wrong?!?!?
I am still waiting for that second trimester energy and good feelings to kick in. I am sure when it does you will be hearing a lot more from me.
I am sure that is just right around the corner.....

Hang in there chickie... You will feel better sooon...
Those women who love being pregnant dont get morning sickness or pain etc... The only time
i enjoyed being pregnant was the day I gave birth seeing the precious little one makes all the pain go away :)
(((BIG HUGS)))

Hang in there
I did wonderfully on all of my pregnancies until the last
(toxemic, diabetic, hernia, back went out-had to crawl on floor to take care of my other kids.....

Guess what -I would do it all again - As soon as the baby is placed on your chest - all is well-
Focus on the end result

It's all worth it :)

Good Luck
And Blessings to you

Glad to hear she is doing well! You will be also soon. Saltines were my best friend during the first trimester of all four of mine. I kept them by the bed and had a couple before my feet hit the floor in the morning. Morning sickness always told me that things were OK, so it's not all bad if you look at it that way!

Hang tough! I always loved being pregnant AFTER the first trimester (roughly) and BEFORE the last couple weeks (by then I was DONE, DONE, DONE)!

Just keep hanging in there, it should get better as you progress, I was sick all the way through all of my three pregnacies. But when the baby is born you will wonder what all of the fuss was all about!

Miranda said...

Oh, honey, I knew you weren't doing great, but I didn't know it was that bad. You just rest and eat what you can, and know we all love you. Big Hug!

Hi Sherry,
Hang in there sweetie, better times . . . they-are-a-coming! I have 3 sons, my last one was born when I was 36, and all 3 were such a joy. I was one of the fortunate ones who loved being pregnant. As long as Picadilly is doing fine, you'll start gaining weight when it's time to. God Bless & Godspeed. love, sy

I'm glad Picadilly is doing well. I hope that one morning (soon) you will wake up and wonder why you feel so well! Hugs and best wishes, Diane

Pamper yourself, sleep as much as you want and can, don't bother doing anything to stress yourself. I always had easy pregnacies but I've seen too many who didn't. Absolutely DON'T feel guilty about not getting done what you think needs to be done. I'm sure it would be so much more helpful if hubby could be there but you've got us as a poor substitute.

Isdihara said...

Other people used to tell me that good pre-natal vitamins go a long way toward easing morning sickness. Don't know if it is true or false, but you might want to run that one past your doctor, in case he or she has more info to offer that could be helpful.

Hope you start feeling better soon! Piccadilly is such an adorable in-vitro name!

Hey Sherry,
I just read Isdihara's comment and it made me remember something from my fourth pregnancy, three years ago. Doctors had begun recommending a fish oil supplement to take along with your regular prenatal vitamin. It was a separate gel-like pill. For some reason I held off taking it for a while and just took the regular vitamin each night before bed (this was a time of day I did not suffer from morning sickness at all). Then one night I took the fish oil pill as well. It made me SOOO nauseous! I remember laying in bed and holding my stomach. I didn't take it again and did not experience that level of nausea again during my pregnancy. Of course, I talked to my doctor and he was OK with me discontinuing it. I think it was supposed to help with brain development. Let me tell you, Baby Doll is smart as a whip even without fish oil!

Don't know if this has any bearing on what you are experiencing, but wanted to share in case it could be helpful.

I don't think you wanna hear about another pregnancy. Just sleep when you feel like it, eat well for you and Picadilly; as Gina said...Pamper yourself.

And don't feel guilty. I can relate because I hear all the time about these VICTORIOUS women who, after cancer, paddle canoes and climb mts. I'm hear to tell everyone that NOT all have that outcome. Some of us are just glad to awaken each morning.

I never had morning sickness (my Mom had to be in bed when she was pg with me ~ talk about GUILT)

AND I was like a springing heifer....but then the babies "had to be borned" LOL The fist time I was pg, it never occurred to me that the baby had to make an appearance. How dumb was I?

You sleep, eat and do what you want....poo on those springing heifers LOL love you, Grams

I want to say hang in there too. Sleep as much as you need to, your body is telling you what it needs. Picadilly is taking all of your stamina.
We are all in this with you, we wish we could take away some of your stress and sickness by being there with you..in mind even if not in body.
Lots of hugs.

Krystle said...

I felt my first baby kick around 18 weeks, so you are right around the corner from being more aquainted with your little one!

tattingpip said...

Hi Ditto to the other comments listen to your body and take of the two of you. It is so true about the pain disappering when she is born so hang in there. Ginger tea may help with the sickness also wrist bands for travel sickness may help. God bless Pippa xxx

Oh Sherry, don't let those negative feelings get you down. Right now yo have only one job - making a healthy baby. That's it. Everything else can wait, even we blog followers:) When you feel like doing anything besides sleeping and hopefully eating, that's the time to do it. No guilt. You will never have another first pregneancy. Spend hours restng and talking to Picadilly. Or better yet, get some books and read to her. She is learning her mmama's voice and by reading to her, she is beginning to learn the cadence of the language she will one day speak. (sorry, first grade teacher, her.) When the doctor hands her to you and you say hello, she will turn to your voice, like an old friend. Its a moment you will never forget.

Rest easy, dear. Cindy

Bonnie said...

Thank you for the update. I'm praying for you to feel better soon. I miss hearing from you.

Sunela said...

Glad to hear that you are well. My prayers are there for you. Take care....

Drea said...

Try some ginger for the nausea, it's the only thing that helped my mother when she was having me.

Sending prayers for you and Picadilly to be happy and healthy (and energy for you!).

i hope i was there with you.
love you.

My friend Salima vomitted (like the worse hangover ever) all through her pregnancy, ALL DAY! Until 2 days AFTER delivery. She would love more children but can't bear to be pregnant again!
Whatever you feel you need to do will be okay. People will understand that you are pregnant and dangerous if not appeased quickly. Please take ruthless advantage of whatever benefits you get from pregnancy.

Don't worry too much about the weight. My sister only gained 1/2 pound with her son the whole pregnancy, and he is 13 now, and very healthy.

Sorry you are still feeling bad. All of the above advice is good. Sleep when you need to, eat when you can. Take care of you and that baby! No guilt and no worries. I love you very much and I'm so happy and excited for your growing family. Big hugs from Lala
