Okay, so yesterday I could hardly keep anything down. I threw up at least 4 times and just had absolutely no energy!!! Then, this morning, I literally could not get out of bed (I had gone to bed at 8:00 last night, so it was NOT lack of sleep. . .well, not that I slept soundly.). Simon, being the great husband that he is, brought a bowl of oatmeal to me in bed so I could eat before getting up (which, of course, can help curb the morning nausea a bit--not that it always works). So, Aaron joined me on the bed and wanted some, so I gave him a spoonful in-between my spoonfulls (he was very cute helping me blow on it to cool it off).
So, I finished that and laid back down. For the life of me, I could not pull myself out of bed, so Simon called in to work to let them know he would be late since his wife was having such a rough morning. Then, he brought me the phone and I called the doctor. The nurse called in a prescription for Zofran and iron pills. So, to make the long story shorter, I took the Zofran (thank goodness there's a generic now!!!) and an iron pill. I have not thrown up today (though my stomach still hurts--it seems like that was a constant for the whole 9 months in my last pregnancies) and after laying around all day (other than going to have my blood taken for blood tests) I am finally feeling a little bit better.
So, maybe once I've been taking the iron pills for a few days, I'll regain enough energy to at least function. . .I'm even going to cook dinner tonight (granted, it's going to consist of boiliing frozen ravioli for 5 minutes, but hey, it's a start :-)
