Sleep…precious sleep!

Pain & Suffering , , , ,

Who knew that growing a baby would be so exhausting? I seriously think that if I let myself, my body would gladly sleep 23 hours of each day! Even with all of the excitement of Frankie visiting this weekend, my body demanded naps in the car both Saturday and Sunday while Cory and Frankie went sight-seeing. Anybody else able to brag that they have slept in a cemetery?

For those who know me well, you must know how much I enjoy my food. But I’m really trying to be good and eat more veggies. This is not the easiest thing to do when you work in a hospital. My theory is that hospitals only serve fatty, greasy foods (soaked in butter) with the hope that it will cause you health problems that they can fix with expensive procedures! Eating in general has been somewhat difficult. I never thought I would have to make myself eat, but that seems to be happening a lot in the evenings. Breakfast is fine, lunch is okay (if I eat early enough), but come 2:00 in the afternoon, my queasiness strikes. Generally the nausea is just an inconvenience, but getting a good dinner in my belly for Lo has proven less than easy.

Even with all of my complaining, I wouldn’t trade this for the world!

    I am so sorry that this is hitting you so quickly and hard. I do remember the sickness. I forced myself to drink cold slim fast. I really could not eat much without running. There are some new small saltine crackers that nabisco has. I eventually had to be put on zofran because I lost weight instead of gaining. Keep you doctor informed about how sick you really are. I hope that you will only go through this for a couple of weeks. Suzanne can give more current advice on worked best for her.

    Lisa,

    The weather forecast for Saturday in Baltimore calls for rain. This kind of weather calls out for curling up with or without a good book and getting a good read or a good nap. Take advantage of the opportunities to sleep. I hope the nausea subsides soon. It should be gone after a few weeks. Love, Mimi

    It will get better. A little ginger ale and some crackers…just no pizza! Take care of yourself!
    Hugs to all
