i have been in such a BLAH mood today. the HG has gotten a lot worse in the past two weeks, as i've rounded the bend into 15 weeks. i feel accomplished at this point. i've made it through the really scary phase (the whole miscarriage thing--nothing to do with HG, just my own fears) and now i'm feeling twitters and flippies every now and then. i know it's baby alexander (we're calling the baby "baby alexander" until we find out the sex) and i feel excited. despite all the nasty sickness, i really just am so excited to begin another chapter.. and finish one of the books in the series of my life, as i am getting a "final" tube-tying ritual done, and my child-rearing years are officially over.

i am frustrated with my OB. i went to women's services with a positive pregnancy test at 7 weeks. i had my first appointment on november 16th. at that appointment, i stressed that i was constipated, and dizzy, and faint.. i had reported that i fell at school and was deeply worried about walking through my school's icey, slippery, snowy parking lot this winter.. and i felt as though she was basically telling me "your condition isn't serious enough for any kind of special accommodations." no one took my urine, despite me citing my concerns of dehydration. after my pelvic exam, she listened to my heartbeat for about two seconds, and sent me on my way. many of my friends (and me in my first two PGs) had gotten an ultrasound early.. just to check the due date. i figured because my babies are typically born small, that they'd wanna check how the baby is right away. but no. 15 weeks and still not one ultrasound. i'm a little tiffed about it. :\

tomorrow i take my last zofran pill. i called today and requested a refill.. i'm probably going to have to go buy 3-4 pills (13-20$) just to get me through the weekend. i hate to be dependent on a drug during pregnancy.. especially when i feel the way i do about smoking cigarettes and drinking.. i've even cut down on my coffee intake. i am trying so hard to have a healthy, legit pregnancy, but HG doesn't seem to wanna let me.

it's the end of my semester, and it's finals week. i have three exams next week, and three regular tests, four papers to write, and lots of studying. i'm tired now so i'm gonna go to bed!! <3

not really been having a very good couple of days. meds are starting to be less effective; i think due to my possible dehydration. i had some drama happen today and now my chest hurts and i feel like it's my heart. not to mention the ridiculous constant crying.

when i feel better, i will talk about Kate Middleton. it's sad for her, but such a big deal to finally have someone with influence have this condition. i pray for her pregnancy and healthy baby.. but i'm thankful it's her, someone who i see one day having the influence of princess diana proportions. <3

greetings, from the very beginning of my pregnancy blog. i am very excited to be starting this, mainly because i'm so tragically bored now, but also because i've never sat down and just made an account of my rather eventful, nauseating, somewhat traumatic pregnancies. so here i am.

i have two other kids. i think that's the suckiest part about being sick all the time. when it was just me, who cares if i slept all day and didn't eat?! not me! but now, i have a seven year old, and a three year old, and i have to say, VERY demanding. (gosh, could you BE any more needy??!!?--just kidding, i quite adore my children) so a lot of times, i'm having to get up and just suck it up, make sippy-cups, and corn dogs and bowls of cereal (oh yes, my children WILL appreciate a home-cooked meal after this pregnancy) and still kiss boo-boos and break up fights between my two.

this is absolutely, most definitely my last pregnancy. i didn't know the human body could withstand as much as i feel i have. people constantly ask me how i'm feeling.. and i tell them the truth: i feel like a nice mug of death warmed over, with a heaping side of smelly and ugly. i can't keep a damn thing down unless i catch it in just the right window of time, and my head is in a toilet more than it is on a pillow. and then they say "oh... yeahhh... i was really sick in my pregnancy too". and you know what? i want to grab their ears and shake their heads and screeeeeam that they have NO idea what i'm talking about. no idea whatsoever.

i know it sounds like, rude and woe-is-me to utter such a thing, but honestly, right now i'm suffering, so i'm not exactly ALWAYS a glass-is-half-full kinda gal. deal with it.

i'm 14 weeks and about 2 days. i'm definitely starting this blog later in my pregnancy than i had hoped, but luckily nothing much has happened yet. i'm fighting with the insurance company for a supply of more than 20 Zofran per month. i don't know about every other HG-sufferer, but Zofran works fine-and-dandy to me. i do, however, wish i was getting the attention i deserve--i've already lost 15 lbs and that's clearly 5% of my PPW. without my Zofran, i definitely would spend the entire day vomiting. i can't keep water down this pregnancy. it's an emetic for me. so is juice. which sucks, because that pretty much leaves me with pop. but it stays down.

my body is freaking me out. i can feel the baby growing, but i'm already losing weight off my torso region.. i lost 30 lbs with my first child (Malachi, 7) and 45 lbs with my daughter (Kamilah, 3) and i'm pretty nervous to see what i lose this time. i don't care how much weight i gain OR lose, as long as Baby Alexander comes out healthy and happy. i am pretty nervous for the next 6 months, but i will find some comfort in being able to write about it and express myself.

now that i'm an old, preggo, pukey monster... 12:44 am is a SUPER late bedtime. until i blog again.
