Sick and tired of being sick and tired

6 Jan

I have been sick since Christmas day. That, my dears, is almost 2 weeks…14 days of feeling like caca. I’m going to the doc in a little while, so we’ll see what he says but I’m ready to do a headectomy or maybe even a neckectomy. Sure, I wouldn’t be much fun to be around but I betcha I’d finally feel better!

Sean left yesterday and I was one of those girls that cried when he walked out the door. How sad is that? It’s not like he’ll be gone for a long time, just until Sunday and I even have plans myself it just hit me though. It seems like since we moved we’ve been so distant from each other. Stressing about the move, new job, finances, kids being sick, all of the family being sick and then the holidays have just taken a toll on us as a couple right now. When he gets home we WILL find a sitter, he’s already been asking around his coworkers if they know anyone, and we WILL go on a date. Y’all, I haven’t had a date with my husband in years and that’s not an exaggeration, it’s the honest truth. I miss him and I miss adult time. I miss eating without a kid throwing food or screaming. I miss sitting at a table that isn’t huge. I miss going to see a non-kid movie and holding hands in the theater. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids 110% (usually) and would die without them but I need time to connect with the person that gave me those kids. I totally believe that spending time away from them will make me a better mom.

Anyway, enough whining. I’m headed to the doc in a bit. Then this weekend I’m going to have FUN!

Yeah, that was me!

So yeah, that was me at the Wal-Marts in the shirt I wore to bed last night.

Yeah, that was me with the greasy pony tail’d hair that hasn’t been washed since yesterday.

Oh and that was me who kept pulling my panties out of my tush because of the gigantic queen sized matress pad I am wearing today (thanks Auntie Flo).

And you can guarantee that that was me giving gift-giving advice to a woman in the toy isle while MY kid was screaming and had green snot running down his face.

That lady wandering around the Wal-Marts for 4o minutes (because her son’s prescription for a double-ear infection was being filled) talking on the phone about 2 month expired ham…sure that was me too.

If you saw me and didn’t say hi…I don’t blame you. But ya know what? At least I brushed my teeth and put on a bra, thankyouverymuch!

Croup and scrapbooking

2 Feb

Ok, so those don’t really go together at all but I thought I’d throw them into one post! LOL

#1. Jay has croup.  He sounds horrible and I know doesn’t feel well.  My poor Bubba.  He’s been napping for over an hour, which if you’ve read my shit you know he takes 30min power naps!  So, 1+hr is crazy!  We got him some steroids today after seeing the doc, hopefully it’ll kick in fast and he’ll start feeling better.  He is 29inches long and weighs 23.4 lbs!  My big-ol-boy!

#2. One of my fave scrapbooking sites (Shabby Princess) has their February calendar posted!  It’s CUTE CUTE CUTE!  I think it’s one of my favorite desktop calendars EVER!  Go download it!

Thrust into parenting multiple children

29 Apr

Today was going to be a big day for me.  Family all finally gone, the last bunch leaving early this morning, Sean going back to work and Kenna in school, leaving me and Jay alone trying to figure out a routine and what would work for us.  Sean would take Kenna to school, since I can’t drive yet, then he’d come home early so we could all go get her and head to Jay’s first ped appt.

Then life happened.

Kenna woke up at 3 am puking.  I didn’t know it, her Gramma woke up and tended to her, which was awfully nice but I still wish I knew.  I feel bad I wasn’t there to hold her hair as she hurled or rub her back.  She’s puked a few more times this morning and can’t even keep the little Pepto tablets down.  She has no fever but is white as a sheet. 

So, I’m now thrust into parenting mulitple children, one being a newborn that I want to keep away from his puking big sister.  Wow…what a first day by myself!

Feel like shit – 24 wks

26 Jan

A bulleted post for you all:

  • I have a cold, have since Saturday
  • I have tons of snot, which does not help the nausea…at all!
  • The bullshit sudafed does not work for me
  • I have a doc appt tomorrow (11am – U/s and 1:30pm – appt with MFM)
  • I have cried most of the day
  • Never vomit snot, it's disgusting; worse than KFC mashed potatoes and cold iced tea
  • Sorry I didn't answer the phone dad, I love you but cannot bear to talk today, I will call tomorrow after my appt
  • No fever is what makes me think it's just a cold, fyi.  I have all the horrible symptoms of the flu just no fever, thank god
  • I haven't slept well since "The Cold of 2009", I can't breathe
  • Jaylon doesn't seem to mind that I'm miserable, he has been moving and having a blast in my cozy, warm, fluid-filled uterus of heaven
  • I will update tomorrow after my 2nd level II u/s and my appt
  • All is going well with the pregnancy still, if my doc puts me in the hospital in a few weeks it's strictly (at this point) for my mental well-being

2nd Trimester

16 Nov

I'm 14 weeks today…yipeee.  2nd tri and I should be feeling better, but I don't.  Even with the meds there are days that I just feel like shit, all day long.  Today is one of those shitty days.

The whacko dreams of pregnancy have begun.  And there's a central theme to all of my dreams; death.  Don't have to psychoanalyze myself to find the meaning of that, huh?

The baby is the size of a lemon…3 1/2 inches long and weighs 1 1/2 oz.  Awwwwwwwwww!

That is all for today…

A small victory!

12 Nov

Hey, I'll take any victory lately!  So, today I went to the grocery store for the first time since becoming pregnant.  See…when you're pregnant and have hyperemesis this is the math equation:

grocery store + food smells = "clean up on isle 8 please"

Not a fun day and I hadn't been back.  Luckily I have an awesome husband who does the shopping for me so I don't call him weeping from the local store saying that I just hurled and I feel horrible and now I have snot everywhere and I'm so embarrassed…you get the point.  And Sean's done well in the shopping relm.  Getting stuff I never think to or wouldn't dare try when I'm nauseated 24×7.

But today, today was different.  I had a short nap, as opposed to my 4 hr nap, after I took Kenna to school.  I awoke and felt ready to go.  I went and got my weekly shopping done, without a gag or gagging feeling.  The plus side to all of this is I only got one thing that wasn't on my list (thanks to a little nausea still nothing looked good)…Egg Nog ice cream.  Thank god for the holidays!

Dare I say I'm feeling somewhat normal, with the help of 2 different meds and 2-4 hr naps all day long?  Hey, I'll take it!

Puke update

7 Nov

Ok…so this is going to be fast.  I had to go to the Ob/Gyn ER on Wednesday because I can't stop hurling.  They admited me and I just got home late last night.  Sorry if you're family and this is the first time you're hearing of this.  My cell phone died and I honestly didn't have any energy left to do anything.

I've lost a crap load of weight and my Zofran didn't work.  I was totally dehydrated, worse than ever before.  Then the poops started.  But I'm home now and exhausted.

I'm on Zofran every 12 hrs and Reglan before every meal and at dinner.  We'll see how much that Reglan costs since I haven't filled it yet.

Plus side I heard the baby and he's doing great!  He even kicked the doppler and the doc couldn't believe that he could actually feel it!  And I was on the maternity floor so I heard newborn babies all night, so that was so sweet too, just reminded me of the end!  🙂

So, I need to catch up on my 'hood and read posts but I may not comment today.

A little disappointed

31 Oct

I'm a wee bit upset.  I thought this Zofran was a wonder drug.  That I would take it and feel like my old self.  I thought that I would not be sick, that I would not feel like puking and that I would have my appetite back and eat again.  I love food and the thought of eating again made me happy.

Today is only day two but the only difference I can tell is that I don't puke.  I still don't feel good.  I still am nauseated and don't really want to eat.  And when I do take the Zofran I have to have a tylenol chaser because of the horrible headache I get from it.

Not what I was hoping and praying for, but I guess it's working since I haven't hurled in two days.  Oh well.

Doc appt today!

29 Oct

Alrighty…the appt was quite normal.  I've lost more weight which has made my doc very unhappy with me.  So he wrote me a script for Zofran…which I will add to that story in a second. 

Anyway he tried to hear the baby via doppler but he couldn't get him, so he said "well hell, let's do an ultrasound then". I was all for it!  When he got him on the u/s monitor we realized why we couldn't get the doppler on him.  For one he's behind my pubic bone and two that baby is a movin'!  We're not talking a twitch here and there we are talking full fledged jumps.  I've never seen a baby jump like that.  He honestly balled up then sprang up with BOTH legs and jumped.  The doc even commented how crazy that was!  He didn't do it just once but twice then danced in there.  It was hillarious.  He didn't measure the baby since it was a quickie to make sure he was doing well since we couldn't get the hb.  So, all is fine with the baby!  The doc's schedule is crazy the next two months so I see him in 3 weeks again but this time on a Tuesday.

I asked the doc about the Zofran, if it was expensive.  He said that there is now a generic, so it wouldn't be as bad.  I went to fill it and asked before they started filling how much it would be…are you ready for this…for 15 pills, just 15…was OVER $1000!  I started crying.  Here I finally have a great med that maybe I can eat again (I'm so tired, I have no energy since all I eat is toast) and it's crazy expensive.  The pharmacy said they didn't have a generic.  So, I just got a call from the doc and he said to try another pharmacy within the university health system, they should have a generic.  I guess we'll see…ya know, since they are closed now!

So that was the fun today!
