today I am thankful for...

Nausea Medication. (that actually works!)


My sweet OBGYN (whom I love, but I have only known her for a few months now) has now prescribed me two different things in the last week that have just not been effective for me, so after running a low grade fever, and under the persuasion of my family, I went to see my family dr yesterday, for the good of the baby since I was running a fever and hadn't kept food down in three days. There is something about a family dr that just makes everything better... he has known me since I was a kid, takes care of my husband and his weird ailments (we were just in two weeks ago with his ingrown toe nail, ha) and also knows I'm a nurse... and thankfully he prescribed me the one thing that I already knew worked, because its what I give my patients in the hospital. Zofran sub-lingual, my new best friend. I had tried the regular zofran tabs, with no luck... still nauseated and throwing up... and then phenergan, ha, that's a joke, yes, it knocked me unconscious for 12 hours, oh but minus the breaks to be woken up to throw up. So thanks to dr. b, I kept my first food down in three whole days yesterday (egg drop soup from lins garden, still got those pregnancy cravings!).  He thinks I had a stomach virus and that this isnt pregnancy related, Praise Jesus. So maybe once this passes, I will actually begin seeing the benefits of second trimester?? Not to complain, because I have already seen an increase in my energy level. Lets just get rid of this nausea... although I do feel like its God's not-so-little way of reminding me of the sweet creation that is taking place in my body, so I won't complain.

Here are some pictures from last weekend... sick hubby and the snow storm

When Daddy's sick, so is Sadie.

Have a great weekend everyone, hope you get to enjoy it!
