I've seen the light.... the end of the tunnel.  Thanks to Zofran, I am now able to feel somewhat normal and even eat the occasional full meal. I still feel guilty for resorting to a prescription, but I really didn't have much of a choice if I didn't want to end up in the hospital with an iv stuck in my arm. Not a miracle cure, but good enough for me. I wouldn't say that it kills the nausea- but it does seem to take care of my gag reflex. I'm still hoping I have that "breakthrough morning" in the next few weeks where I wake up and feel like myself again. 

I'll try to update again tomorrow- sorry for the short/sporadic posts, but reading/typing on the computer is one of my nausea triggers- go figure. I'm hoping that I'll feel well enough to start planting some of my seeds tomorrow- my limit is one major or two-minor post-work activities per day, and I used them up today between grocery shopping and putting my books back in their shelves post-new-floor-installation.

Glad you're feeling a little better! Sounds like you're getting a ton of stuff done, especially for someone who's sick. Have you had to miss a lot of work over it? I only missed a day and a half last time--and that was when I got my Zofran Rx and was fine after that.

I just found your blog! :) I wouldn't feel bad about the medicine if helps you. I'll be 17 weeks tomorrow and I still have problems with the whole gagging thing. It's mainly just in the morning or if I smell something gross. I've found that a sip of orange juice first thing in the morning does wonders...but maybe I'm just weird. :)
