And he was and he's beautiful and wonderful.
But I'm still sick.
I had no idea that the nausea could keep going. It hasn't been nearly intense as during pregnancy. For months it's been coming and going, fifteen minutes here, an hour there. I would only throw up once or twice a week.
Until about two weeks ago. Then it started getting much, much worse. Some days it's debilitating, and I often can't function, or I'm barely functioning. I have no patience, I snap at the kids, I'm tired and just plain crabby.
Before you say, "WOMEN, get thee to a drugstore and buy a pregnancy test," don't worry. Been there, done that. Too many times.
It was getting really expensive, so I bought a pack of twenty-five on amazon.
Along with being very private, I'm also a bit neurotic.
So here I am. Feeling sick at this very moment. Discouraged. A little bit scared, wondering has anyone else ever experienced this? When will it end? Will this be my life?
Thursday I'll have blood work done in hopes of gaining answers, and some relief.
I'm ready for this to be done.
