I feel like I need to throw up a lung.
Yeah... I know... lovely.

No relief whatsoever from this nausea/sleepiness they call "morning" sickness. Who came up with that name anyway, because, I promise you, it's so much more than in the morning. It's definitely after 3 o'clock right now and I have felt this all around "yucky" feeling since I woke up at 8:15 this morning-- with only about 30 minutes after I ate lunch that I felt just "okay"and not "horrible". Yesterday I was sick from the moment I woke up until the moment I went to bed. SO sick that I couldn't go to church... the only thing that brought the slightest bit of relief was eating a bowl of Rice Krispies then laying on the couch in the fetal position. I started crying in the middle of the day I was so miserable. The thing is, I haven't thrown up yet. I almost wish I would throw up because I feel like it'd make me feel a little better. I've come so close thinking I was about the vomit that I've had my head hung over the toilet... but I don't. I don't know. I'm trying a number of things people have told me to try. AnnaLisa has even given me a pack sample drugs she gives her patients for nausea & vomitting. It helped the first day I took them, but not since then. I dunno... I don't want this to be just me complaining. But really ALL it's that's going on right now.

A few things I'm gonna try...
Taking prenatal vitamins at night instead of in the morning. They've been known to be a cause of nausea.
Preggie Pops* These lollipops that contain vitamin B6 in them that are to decrease symptoms of nausea.
Ginger-- apparently ginger helps nausea as well.
all thanks to-- www.morningsicknesshelp.com lol. no kidding.

I have a Dr. appointment scheduled for March 2nd!! Yay!
And Feb 28th is my last day at the coffeehouse! *bittersweet*

Love yall! (all one of you who reads my blog)

See..there are at least two of us...even more of a reason to keep up the blog :) Sorry you are so sick. The nurse coming out in me wants to help you so much but really it sounds like you are trying everything. Trying the B6 might actually help...I remember learning that in class. Make sure you find out how much to take though. In the mornings try eating a few saltine crackers about 15 minutes before getting out of bed. Sip on fluids throughout the day and I remember reading maybe not drinking fluids during your meal. Small meals and snacks throughout the day and no fatty or spicy foods...hmm...does that mean no Monterrey :) That's all I got...and you've probably tried it all. I love you so much and remember you can call me anytime now!!
