We are now 9 weeks into this pregnancy, and I’m not in the best place physically. If you remember my pregnancy with Luke, I was sick All. The. Time. The same thing is going on with this baby, but even more so. I started the pregnancy at 122 pounds and am sitting at 115.6 when I weighed in this morning. Essentially I have already lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks time.
I have good days where I feel only mildly nauseated at times, most of my days are nauseous feeling all day long, and some days I can’t stay away from the toilet. All this sickness has made it hard (but not impossible) to take care of Luke. I feel like the little man is getting the short end of the stick, although he loved playing in the bathroom…..so maybe not.
I have an appointment on Friday to go over our options. My belly is so raw, bruised and gross from the zofran pump. (Look at the cute photo bomber)
It hurts so bad. I’m already on the highest dose of zofran I can be on. The PICC line is only a last resort option because I have to be hospitalized for placement, there is a huge risk for infection and the effects of only liquid nutrition isn’t the best for growing Baby L.
If anyone has any other ideas please feel free to share. Keep in mind that traditional nausea remedies don’t work on me (ginger, small frequent meals, peppermint, sea bands, preggo pops, the like)
