So Sick

I have truly never been so sick in all my life. Not only am I taking Zofran but also Phenergan. The medicine helps a great deal. But it's still very difficult to eat and drink. I'm doing the best I can with it, though. And I'm able to get some things down.

I just keep reminding myself that sickness is good in this case and that it won't last forever. I know it is worth it. And I can do it for my baby!!!

Little Guy is as cute as ever. I love him so much. I pray all the time that he'll be ours soon and that our baby in my belly will also be healthy and strong. I pray that we'll get to be both babies' mommy and daddy. (For those of you who may be new to my blog, "Little Guy" is our 3 month old baby that we foster. He's been with us since birth. I may not be his biological mommy, but in my heart he is my baby. It is looking very favorable for adoption.)

A blog friend told me to look up a song - One Day at a Time, Sweet Jesus. I listened to that song, and I do love the words. So true! I know that song from my childhood but hadn't heard it in a long time. Thank you for sharing! I was encouraged!

I'll leave you all with the words from another song that encourages me too:

  1. ’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to take Him at His Word;
    Just to rest upon His promise,
    And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”
    • Refrain:
      Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
      How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
      Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
      Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
  2. Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just to trust His cleansing blood;
    And in simple faith to plunge me
    ’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
  3. Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
    Just from sin and self to cease;
    Just from Jesus simply taking
    Life and rest, and joy and peace.
  4. I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
    Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
    And I know that Thou art with me,
    Wilt be with me to the end.

Hope you feel better soon. I have been sicker than most pregnancies before too. I don't think as sick as you but still vomiting here at 13 weeks.

My OB just suggested adding in some Pepcid. She said it doesn't matter what kind (complete, etc.) She said it helps some patients that still struggle even with zofran.

I've heard Benadryl & B6 combined can be helpful for nausea...not sure if it's true or not :)

I hope you feel better soon and I KNOW you believe it's all worth it :)

I am so sorry that you are still feeling so sick. Hope you can come up with some sort of combo that will help ease that for you.

Have a wonderful weekend! Still thinking of you, every day!
