I started on a new medication one week ago. It is what chemotherapy patients use for nausea. It doesn't work all the time but I have been able to keep some food down which has resulted in my belly finally sprouting. It literally happened over night. I had all kinds of cramps and growing pains one day and the next day I woke up with a baby bump....finally!!!
I had one good day this past week and I thought I was through all this and then things reverted back to icky. So I guess I'll take the good days when I can get them and muddle through the bad. Standard.
DH was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis which may end his military career. Everything is up in the air as far as our future is concerned. (No stress there right?) Worst case scenario is that we are dumped into this current economy without jobs. Also, it is official that our home is now worth less than we paid for it. So we are joining the thousands of Americans who are in the same situation. It figures that all this would have to happen as we are bringing new life into the world.
..and finally it looks like I have developed hyperthyroidism during this pregnancy which would explain why I am not gaining weight.
Fun fun fun!
On a lighter note I was able to pay some attention to my tatting shop and we are now up to date on tatting thread supply. I hope to add hook pens and tatting shuttles as I start to feel better day by day...or moment by moment.
I want to thank everyone for all the kind words of encouragement. I really do treasure each and every word. Your kindness is buried in my heart and when I am strong enough again I will share that with others!
