Ugly

My mom and brother hooked me up to IV fluids at home last night. After two bags, I felt much perkier, enough to eat a sandwich, and I went to bed hoping today would be better.

It's not better, though. I ate some breakfast and drank some liquid, but I lost most of that, so progress is not being made. I'm working my way through a glass now, but it's slow going. I need to try harder, or I'll be back on the IVs before the end of the weekend, but I have to force myself to take sips. It's miserable.

I guess this is the other shoe I was worrying about, since this pregnancy came relatively quickly. There are worse shoes, and I am mostly grateful not to have them. Doesn't make this easy to take, though.

It's so odd that two pregnancies for the same person can be so very different. Also that you're sick this time - the old wives say that people are more likely to be sick with twins. Just goes to show what they know. I hope this doesn't last long!!!

I'm so sorry. I hope that the nausea lessens...at least a little.

That just sucks. I wish I had something useful to say, some magical tidbit of advice, but all I have is hopes it goes away soon.

I'm so sorry you've been so sick. I hope you had a good weekend and you're feeling much better.

I hope you feel better soon. Have you tried sucking on ice cubes or eating popsicles? Sometimes if it's something really cold it goes down a little easier.
