6w2d Update

Just stopping in for a quick update. I have been lucky/unlucky enough to be in the full throes of Teh Sickyness. Yuck. Some days have been worse than others though and I'm grateful for that. TMI, but I have been "blessed" with the full trifecta of ick: Diarrhea, Cramps and Nausea/Vomiting.

Gotta love the weird food aversion too. So. Much. Fun.

I have tried taking Pepto pills (Doc said it was ok), and while they seemed to ease the nausea, they caused TERRIBLE cramps and shits for days *shudder*.

I tried Zantac which didn't make any difference at all. I felt fine with it one minute and the next minute I'm hugging my trashcan (yes, in my office. It blows and so do I. HA.)

I have tried keeping food in my tummy, but all that seems to do is make it worse. Not to mention that I think my metabolism has actually sped up a great deal because I seem to need to eat every stinkin hour at the latest. Combine that with the poopy issues and it's just an all-around party.

The good news is that today I feel pretty good, just minor crampy/aches so far and I have a 7 week ultrasound scheduled for Weds and then I am officially graduated to the OB, with an OB appointment at 8 weeks.

Fingers will remain permanently crossed that things continue to go "well."


  1. Sounds like you have a sense of humour about it all anyway! Have you thought about vitamin made quite the difference for me...

  2. I'm right there with you. Starving yet want to throw up, at the same time.
    Can't wait to read about your u/s results today!
