So I've lost 10 pounds....

If I wasn't pregnant and so sick I'd be excited about this. I'm about 5'8", and down to about 130 lbs at this point. It's crazy because I look thin all over, but with a bloated abdomen. Gross. My midwife prescribed me Phenegran, but it only makes me more sick. I tried to avoid taking it in the beginning because I didn't want to take any drugs, but when I finally broke down and took it, it made me puke. Go figure. 

On the bright side, I did have an AMAZING Valentine's Day...I have the best husband ever! Brett bought me a spa day package, so I got a 1 hr facial, mani-pedi, my makeup done, etc. It was amazing! I was a little disappointed that I couldn't have a massage (they won't do it in the first trimester), but Brett promised me one of the prenatal massages for my birthday. While I was at the salon, Brett actually went home and cleaned the house! So I came home to a clean house, roses, a potted plant, card, and chocolates. YAY!

Oh how awful. I never had it that bad! How does your midwife feel about Zofran? It helped me a ton with Suzi--the Phenergan made me so tired. I hope you feel better soon!

Yeah- Phenegran had that side effect too. The one time I managed to keep it down it knocked me out for the whole afternoon. I will have to ask about Zofran- although I hesitate, because almost all anti-nausea medicine makes me sick. Ironic. It is worth a try, though. Thanks for the suggestion!

So sorry you are feeling so sick. BAD BABY!! :) Just kidding. It should go away soon so just get through it...you can do it!! Don't worry about the weight, as long as you stay hydrated, that's what's important for baby. Hope you get to feeling better soon!
