Happy St. Patties Day

The title really has nothing to do with this post. I am not doing anything for the holiday. My mom is cooking corned beef and cabbage and heaven knows I will not be eating that while I am sick. In fact the smell of it cooking was so bad I asked my mom to put it outside, and she did. We are staying at my moms and have been since after my last post. She takes care of the kids and of me and because of it I have been able to stay out of the hospital. Even with eating all the time and laying down all the time I have still thrown up quite a bit. I know have the generic zofran which does make it much easier not to throw up and sometimes I even feel good enough to sit up and type on the computer. Night time is the worst time for me. I go home on the weekends and we are trying to move into our new house. I don't do any moving and I feel very guilty about that. I am pretty much useless. Russ has been working very hard and is very stressed and I hate that I can't help.

I am not sure exactly what my weight was before this all started, but I know I am down 5 pound already. I feel like I eat all day but I guess when it is only 2 bites at a time it doesn't add up to much.

I hope I don't sound too complaining in this post. That is not the purpose of it. I just needed to journal what has been going on with us. I am so grateful to be at my moms, it has helped the kids and I so much. I am hoping for less than 4 more weeks of this. I hope, I hope, I hope.

Next time I am home I plan to post some pictures of the house. It really is wonderful.


  1. I know we don't know each other well, but I just wanted you to know some one else really knows how you feel. I too get REALLY sick when I'm pregnant (was hospitalized 5 times with my last pregnancy) so I litterally know exactly how you feel. Try not to feel guilty, because right now the best thing you can do for everyone in your fam is take it easy & get through it. I'm so glad to hear that you have help. Good luck!

  2. oh debbie!! it reminds me of being pregnant!! that is such a blessing that you can stay at your moms! i know that when i get pregnant again, i will most definitley have to move in with my mom or one of my sisters...we would not survive otherwise! hang in there!!!

    Thinking of you, Debbie! You are a wonderful mama to incubate your beautiful babes through such yuckiness. We are keeping you in our prayers and sending you much, much love. Can't wait to see you very soon and help in any way we can.

  4. I'm sorry you are so sick Debbie! I am 20 weeks tomorrow and just got the ok to FINALLY stop using my Zofran pump. I was super sick too and lost weight, but I hope that this baby doesn't have you bedridden much longer! Sometimes the only thing that kept me sane was knowing that as long as I was sick then the pregnancy was progressing and the baby was okay. Hang in there!
