Pregnancy

Well... For those who don't know, I'm pregnant with baby #3. Crankin' them out I guess... Not intentionally though I promise you! So far, this pregnancy has been VERY rough. At somewhere between 16 weeks and 20 weeks (depending on which nurse/doc you ask), I have yet to get through an entire day without feeling sick. Thankfully, it has eased up a bit, but come on... this is supposed to be over by now! I am also very exhausted. Partly because I am home all day with my two boys who barely let me take a break, partly because Jonathan still wakes up in the middle of the night for two hour jaunts, and partly because my iron is low. At my last doctor's appointment, they told me not to start taking iron pills right now because it would just make me more nautious.
Also at my last appointment, I was given a prescription for nausea medicine. The doctor is starting to get a little worried because I had lost over 15lbs at my last appt. It was no huge surprise to me because I lost weight with both of my others too. They did tell me that if I didn't start gaining by my next appt (March 3rd) that they would have to do something. Who knows what that means??!
Throughout this pregnancy I have also had a lot of pain so far. A lot of it is pain that I didn't have with either of my others and some I remember having a bit of with Jonathan but not until near the end of the pregnancy. It sucks!! Sometimes I go to stand up and can't physically stand all the way up because the pain keeps me hunched over. I really hope that things get better.
I go back to the doctor on March 3rd for my next check up. We have an ultrasound that day and should be able to find out the sex of the baby.

(approx 13ish weeks)... haven't taken a new one yet.

Congratulations, I am sorry you are having the hyperemesis, I had it too with Giovanni and am very nervous about getting preggos again. I had to have home health nursing and an IV running fluids mixed with antinausea meds to get through it. It does usually pass, but mine was about 7 mos before I felt better, hang in there!
