Hellloooooooo

Is anyone out there?

(crickets)

Kirby sure did a bang-up job with his blogging assignment, didn't he?

(crickets)

I figured it was about time I log on and update this lonely little blog. Here I am. What's new, whaaaaat's new? Well, I thought I was ten weeks but then I looked at a calendar and counted, again, and realized I am only nine. These findings brought about two significant feelings for me:

1. Sadness! This means at least one more week of feeling bad. I thought I was one week closer to feeling good, but here I am, one week not closer.

2. Why am I so big? Kirby thinks it's because of my new special diet. The other day he caught me sipping off of a bottle of ginger ale and he smart-assily commented on how we was sure that it would be all the pizza and mcmuffins that would bring about my gestational diabetes but that was before he saw me knocking back soda straight out of the bottle. We shall see, Mr. Smartassbesthusbandtakingcareofeverythingallthetimeloser.

So, is it the all the junk I consume on a thrice+ weekly basis or is it a giant baby or is it quadruplets? (Don't answer that.)

reminder: ONLY NINE WEEKS

I have been feeling quite terrible/verging on non-functional these past few weeks which is no good for anyone. Yesterday, in my desperation, I got a Zofran prescription and I almost cried of happiness when it kicked in and my 9-on-the-barf-scale nausea melted away to a solid 3. An hour later I was at a 2 and I COULD NOT BELIEVE it was possible to take the barfs away so flawlessly. Say what you will but that tiny white pill is my very, very favorite right now. I can't believe I ever lived without it. Thank you, thank you, Jesus.

Other than all of that I have this other baby who is turning one in five days. One!

Remember his birth and my cry face?

Oh, Peter. I love him so much. He has started to say mama (nice diversion from 3 months of dada) all the time, not just when he is screaming, and I love it. He crawls around at hyper speed and yells at his siblings and climbs up onto beds and eats cat food and does lots of other naughty baby things. I think he is going to be beating Johnny up pretty soon and I can't wait. He is such a good boy. I can't believe a almost-year has already passed since his fat 9.2 lb self and I first met face to face.

Here is a pic dump of my photobooth archives bc it's all I can come up with in these maximum low standard days.





Peter!

  5. Happy birthday baby boy! And I'm glad you're taking zofran and that it's WORKING! It didn't work for me, but every pregnancy I'd pick up the prescription hoping it will be the time it'd kick in for me. Alas, 5 pregnancies later and no such luck. Hoping your sickness doesn't last too long and my advice is: get through each day as best you can even if it includes bad food/drink and lots of shows for the kiddies! They'll never remember it anyway :) Good job, Blythe!! _Angie Tancraitor

  6. Yay for hitting 9 weeks and yay for making the nasty barfing sensation go away. :) Hopefully the nausea will pass entirely by 10 weeks?

  7. When I was about 13 weeks or so with Miss Gwen and I thought that I had caught a stomach flu because I couldn't keep even little sips of water down and then it didn't go away and my midwife broke the bad news that no.....that's just your morning sickness gone insane and you need to be able to drink water and all that and please fill this prescription for Zofran and then....ta da! Still in bed for weeks but totally keeping water down LIKE A BOSS. Zofran 4EVAH. You look awesome. So excited for you!

  8. I am this crunchy anti-medication hippie and all, but oh man, I am convinced that nausea is the worst effect of the Fall and if I ever experienced morning sickness that severe, you bet your everything I would be hitting up the Zofran. Awesome that it's working so well! :)

  13. I had to take Zofran for 3 of my pregnancies. Had to. By the third go around, I realized I could break the pill into smaller crumbs and it would still work for me.

  16. During my second pregnancy I noticed I was growing really fast. Long story short, I was pregnant with twins. They missed it on the first ultrasound; almost missed it on the second one.
    I'm glad you found relief and Peter is adorable!

  18. I'm 13 weeks and my belly starting to peek out, but give me a big carb-y meal and it's like a watermelon under there. I'm excited to follow along with your blog this pregnancy since we're due close to the same time. This is my third child, but first time trying Zofran, and yes--- it is amazing!!
