IT'S A.....

....GIRL! Sorry for the long break on updates, but we have been very busy as we just moved, again. We paid for a 3D ultrasound since she didn't cooperate at the doctor's office and B has a 72 hour warning of deployment. B's Gma stayed with me while he was out of country from mid January to mid February, so she was there the day after he got home and got to see the ultrasound first hand. It was up to that point, the best day of my life. We have decided to name her Lillian Grace after our great grandmothers.

My hyperemesis has gotten better with the help of a special cocktail of medications. I am greatful to have them or I'd be admitted and on IV nutrition and fluids, but I do feel guilty sometimes. Other than the sickness, I have been to the ER for a little bleeding which was caused from a cyst on my ovary that had tore. The bleeding has stopped and has stayed that way so far. Hopefully, it doesn't come back. According to our 20 week anatomy scan, she is in good health and developing right on track. We are 23 weeks so far. I hope to update again soon.

Expecting

Now that I'm expecting I should have expected that things couldn't be simple. I have what's called hyperemesis also known as excessive vomiting during pregnancy. YAY. I am over joyed that I even get to experience "morning sickness" however, I wasn't expecting to be hospitalized for it. In a 3 day span I had been to the E.R. twice for dehydration. Most people tell me, "you should eat a couple crackers before you get up", "ginerale helps", and my all time favorite... "make sure you at least sip on some water." UGH! If I could have kept any one of those things down I would most definately wouldn't have ended up in the hospital dumbass! Anywho, I recieved IV fluids and more medications which are FINALLY starting to help. Hopefully this only lasts a few more weeks and I won't be taking so many medications.
