Argh!<br><br>
First off, the Zofran seems to not be working so well. I don't know if I am not timing it right, or if I've developed a tolerance to it, or if I am being punished for my many past sins, but it's just not helping. I'm sick all the time, I can never think of anything I want to eat and I feel like crap.<br><br>
I'm also sleeping at least 15 hours a day. If I do get up off my butt to do something-- and let's not fool ourselves, I'm not getting off my butt often-- I have to take a nap.<br><br>
I'm feeling angry and annoyed and ticked off pretty much all the time.<br><br>
I look five months pregnant.<br><br>
Every time I stand up I have to sit down right away because I am dizzy.<br><br>
But worst of all? The stupid, downright mean things people say. The nurse at the family doc's said "Well, congratulations... I guess." Other people respond with this weird Schadenfreude, like I'm really going to screw this up and they can't wait to watch. People keep saying "better you than me" and I have to fight the urge to get violent. Also, "Well, you wanted another baby" really isn't helpful.<br><br>
And I have this horrible niggling feeling it's only going to get worse.<br><br>
I want these babies. I really do. I'm thrilled, especially after two losses, to be having twins. But people's stupid reactions coupled with feeling like crap is really, really working on my nerves.

I am so sorry you're feeling so crappy. It must be so difficult to cope, especially with other children to care for. I have no advice, but I'll send my voice out to the universe that you need to feel better soon!

That's awful! I can't believe people would say things like that.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> I'm sorry you feel so lousy. Early pregnancy is really hard in general, and I can imagine it's a lot harder with twins--twice the morning sickness, etc. I hope you feel better soon. (Although, sadly, I don't imagine people's comments are going to get any less dumb.)

How awful the things people say! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
I had the same problem with the zofran. It just stopped working. I think part of it was that I was getting sicker and part of it was that I'd built a tolerance to the med (which doesn't make sense since I was already undermedicating and some people are on a continuous pump <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">).<br><br>
I'm so sorry you are so sick. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> It really consumes every part of your life. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
I've got the dizziness thing too.<br><br>
I so hope you get some relief soon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/goodvibes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Goodvibes">

ddcc...<br><br>
I saw this pop up in the new posts and just had to reply.<br><br>
I also couldn't get Zofran to work with this pregnancy, my third. It was my lifesaver in my second pregnancy, and I was so dissapointed that it didn't seem to do anything this time. I spent the first 16 weeks sitting on my couch, nauseas, exhausted, etc. I was only able to drink 1/2 an ensure a day to keep myself afloat.<br><br>
I discovered my miracle cure way too late, but it was amazing. I took 25 mg, (I think it's mg), of B6 at each meal. Then, a Unisom, (the regular kind, not the gel), at bedtime. I don't know why, but it was a complete turnaround. Have you tried this yet?<br><br>
About the things people say...<br>
I tried for 5 years to get pregnant before I was blessed with my DD. I think some people are cruel with the way they respond when hearing about pregnancy, especially after a heartbreak like a loss or infertility. Please, know that there are people who are thrilled that you are pregnant - with twins!!! - and would love to give you a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"><br><br>
And, if none of this works, just keep telling yourself, "7 more months..."

Poor AM...you sound like me. Just sweeping the floor puts me on the couch for half an hour, and heaven forbid I actually do something serious for dinner.<br><br>
I am sorry, I just keep thinking "A few more weeks and we'll be closer to normal" (not back lol!)<br><br>
I'm also upset because I had just lost a bunch of weight (well, almost 20 lbs) and I've put ten on just not exercising. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">s mama. I feel your pain somewhat with taking antibiotics this week. So dehydrated and tired and nauseated. Two more doses, I keep telling myself. Then maybe I can feel normal. I hope it gets better for you soon.

Other people suck. And I feel your pain...though I've gotten past being sick and exhausted mostly, I was more sick and exhausted this time than ever before....which is not saying a lot, I didn't have much 'sick' with anyone else....<br><br>
I am 'only' on #4 and I got "oh that could NOT have been planned..." at a yoga class. Um, maybe i didn't pick the timing, but let's not get this wrong I have ALWAYS wanted 4.<br><br>
now I hope I don't disappoint my kids lol the older two are absolutely convinced this baby is a girl so that Sophie will have a sister....to the point that oldest DS heard me tell somebody that no I don't know what the baby is and he said "But *I* do, it's a girl!"<br><br>
and i too already look about 6 months pregnant. I've been wearing mat. clothes for about two months. But by 8 week U/S there is only one.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Thanks all. And I'm sorry for being crabby right now. I have a lot of anxiety and no place to put it all.

DDC from November to give a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> and say I totally feel the pain on people's comments. I really think some people just don't think before they speak. There's not much lower than being rude or insensitive to a pregnant lady.
