Spring/Summer 2012 Baby Bumps!

Back From Hell & Here's Baby V!!!

Hi ladies! I've been missing from the boards for a few days because I've been SO SICK and today is the first day where I'm feeling slightly human again. After my ultrasound last Friday (which I'll recap in a minute), I started to feel more and more nauseous and proceeded to spend the weekend between the couch and the bathroom. Starting a couple weeks ago, I've been throwing up once a day. This past weekend, it got so bad that I couldn't keep anything down. It didn't matter what I ate/drank, it would be up shortly and the sessions were so violent that I felt weak/drained/lightheaded afterwards.


I would start bawling to Dh to help me but what could he do? He would try to rub my back but that also made me gag. I went to the hospital on Monday and I was prescribed Zofran (originally intended for chemo patients). My midwife had told me that there's a small risk of it harming baby, so I was very nervous to take it but then I was told that I'm dropping weight & dehydrated and baby isn't getting any nutrients due to my extreme vomiting so I took one pill. It didn't work that whole day so I assumed it wasn't a fit for me. I took a preggo-approved sleeping pill (Unisom) that night and I was out cold. Tuesday...I didn't take any pills/meds and did not vomit!! Woohoo!!! Yesterday was the same so I don't know what happened??? I haven't taken Zofran since that one pill but I have been taking Unisom every night. Maybe that's the key? Either way, I'm so happy I'm feeling better. Although still a bit queasy & lightheaded, it's WAY better than the weekend.


As for the ultrasound, I was sooo scared but we saw baby immediately and the heartbeat was going nice and strong at 152bpm!! It was the coolest feeling and I couldn't wipe the grin off my face all day :D I can't believe that our baby has a heartbeat!!! We told my parents on Saturday and they are so ecstatic! We gave them copies of the ultrasound and now they're hanging on their fridge :) So, here is our little Jujube!!!!!

Oh my god! That sounds like such a terrible experience! I am so happy that you are feeling a bit better. Maybe sleep is really what you needed. I've been sick with a cold and only took a Benadryl 2 nights ago, which knocked me out, and that is when I started to turn the corner. So so happy that you are better and your little jujube is just precious! Congrats!!! :)

Thanks, you guys! I think sleep is definitely the key. I always go to bed early but I think I've been tossing and turning so much that I'm actually getting very little sleep! :(


Hazel~ Yes, I'm at work but am doing nothing :) Thankfully, a coworker did my work for the week so I can relax and take it easy.


Deneen~Welcome to the group and congrats on your bfp!!! I feel like I've missed so much since being gone!

Are you sure you didn't have the flu or food poisoning? It seems strange that it would happen for a couple days and just go away.

I'm sure. No body aches, cold sweats, nothing like I typically get with the flu and I haven't eaten anything that could give me food poisoning. Just your basic crackers, gatorade & cereal. It was like my morning sickness was just extremely intensified but I'm feeling better than I did two weeks ago!

Look for the powerade's zero that have some B vitamins in them. They really have helped me with nausea and B vitamins are what some doctors give shots of when MS is really bad. I am so sorry you had such a rough weekend but look at that cutie!! Yay!

I am so sorry you have been feeling so terrible. It is the worst. I have only thrown up once but there were 3 weeks straight that I pretty much felt like I was going to throw up all day long. Thank god for DH he has been AMAZING. I don't know what I Would do without him. He feels so bad for me.Glad you are feeling better.

Aw Karen, I'm so sorry to hear how bad you felt. I've had 24-7 nausea for the last 2 weeks and that's bad enough. I gag sometimes but nothing comes out, mainly because I'm hardly eating anything (it all seems so repulsive). I'm so glad you're feeling better now though, you must feel brand new after feeling that rough.


That pic is sooooo cooool! Can't wait to have my scan on Tues but I'm really nervous too. I'll be 7wks+3days so I hope I have a pic like yours to share!


Congrats on your beautiful little baby V :) x
