Deja Vu

Well, things have taken a turn for the worse this week. I’m 36 weeks now and I’m back to throwing up once or twice a week. I’m having a lot of trouble eating and digesting food again. I haven’t showered all week because of the nausea and lack of energy. My own body odor is starting to trigger nausea! I checked my weight today and was alarmed to see I lost 6 pounds in a matter of a couple weeks. I started to panic. I know how HG can spiral out of control very quickly. It feels like I’m back to battling HG in my first trimester…I’m anxious that if things keep going the way they are, I will end up dehydrated and will have to get IV fluids again. I called my OB and she put in a referral for home health care. She said it would take a few days for them to call me so if things continue to get worse, I can get the Zofran pump and home IV treatment again. But if I am doing okay, my OB said I could just cancel the order. At this rate, I may take up my OB’s offer to induce me at 39 weeks! Please keep me and baby in your thoughts and prayers.

Third Trimester Relapse

I’m 34 weeks and the HG monster seems to be rearing its grotesque head with a vengeance. This week my nausea has been so much worse. It feels like I’m on the verge of throwing up all the time. My sense of smell is ultra-heightened again. Everything smells disgusting and nothing tastes good. I’m having a hard time eating due to the nausea. I’m sticking to bland food items. I’m back to being in bed half the time to manage the nausea. I was really hoping to get a bunch of things done before the baby comes but now I’m not sure I’ll even have energy to get things done. I know I’m getting closer to the due date but it still feels like an eternity!

In  the middle of the storm...hoping to come out cleaner & brighter in the end.
