The puking has commenced in our house. Over the weekend, Joey was positively gray and miserable. She decided to take a walk around the yard hoping the cool air would make her feel better. I found her throwing up in the back yard. Poor thing. Tonight, she felt terrible after work and more cookie tossing occurred.
It is an unfortunate irony that at a time when she is supposed to be gaining 26 pounds in a short period, she is the most nauseated that she has ever been. No food tastes good. Sometimes food simply refuses to stay down. She has been eating small meals every 2-3 hours and as many veggies as she can. She has been eating protein regularly. She eats high fat content dairy products. She drinks water all the time and we have tried every home remedy we can think of, including crackers. Does anyone know other good nausea/puking cures? She has Zo.fran and takes that at times with limited success. Bah, this trimester is taking forever! No, I am not really complaining. It is just really hard to watch Joey feel bad all the time when there is so little I can do to help her feel better.
In an odd twist, my sister who was pretty snarky about the induced lactation and cloth diapering, has been texting me daily about information she is learning from her new obsession with internet searching. She is on-board with the gpants and found a Med.ula pump at a low price. She has also decided that my dad’s side of the family needs to chip in to buy Joey and I a tricked out stroller. You would think that I would understand my own sister better by now. It appears that she loves to bust my chops but then will support me in whatever I have decided. Who knew?
Tomorrow marks 9 weeks of pregnancy: less than a month left in this trimester!
