Diarhea as a morning sickness symptom... yikes, I hope that doesn't happen to me!
Thank you, you wonderful angel.
I am still feeling SICK. I got home at 11, dropped my stuff, kicked off my shoes, and grabbed the cordless. I flopped onto the bed (still wearing makeup, work clothes, work BADGE) and called Matt while laying on my side. I think my message was something along the lines of "I'm home, I think it's 11, I'm going to sleep, I'll see you when you get home tonight." Somehow I managed to hang up the phone before zonking.
I slept for an hour and then got up to change, let the dog out, and take the New Chapter morning sickness relief (ginger and honey) I had forgotten I had. I then slept for another 2 1/2 hours!
I've eaten four saltines and two Ritz crackers. I think I liked the Ritz best. I'm going to ask Matt to go get me some more Ritz crackers and some Kaeopectate.
Lord God in heaven I hope I don't have three months of this to look forward to. We were going to refrain from telling people until 12 weeks (and 4+ months at work if possible). I managed to convince people at work I had a stomach bug, but that ruse won't last if I'm still sick on Monday.
Right now I still have a little diarrhea and nausea. I haven't vomitted since this morning. This really doesn't seem like a stomach flu, which I wish it were because it'd be gone tomorrow. I have REALLY bad period cramps, like my normal ones on crack. I am so sore from the bottom of my ribs down to my knees -- worse than even after my 4-hour black belt test.
A few months ago I bought a self-hypnosis CD for "Overcoming Morning Sickness." I had hoped I wouldn't need it, but bought it because I knew when I'd need it I'd need it right away. I'm going to go do it and HOPE it helps out.
Ravenmoon -- Thanks for reminding me your sickness started on 8dpo. How are you feeling now? One ray of hope, that's all I'm asking for.
Okay, I'm going to head to bed and try out this hypnosis. I hope it allows me to eat something tonight!!
Thanks again for all your support and I appologize for the very me-centric posts today,
