Fetus Flu

So since I am "out" on facebook I may as well make it official on my blog. I have the fetus flu. Officially pregnant and with some yucky morning sickness to boot. I found out a month ago and thought things were going so smoothly... Well right at the 6 week mark the fetus flu started.

I seriously forgot how bad morning sickness is. My body tricked me into thinking it wasn't so bad. I guess that's how you convince yourself to have another baby.

With Stinx the morning sickness was crappy but I still worked through it. I think that might be the difference. With Stinx I was at work and had a lot of things to distract me from feeling crappy. I have memories of my off-time being miserable. I remember just laying on the couch, all the time, when not working. I lost 10 lbs in the first trimester because I was so nauseous. I totally lost my appetite.

That's basically how the last 2 weeks have been for me. I am surviving off the teeniest amounts of food. But I went to see my doctor and she gave me a prescription for Diclectin. I started taking it last night. I sure hope it will help. My poor family can't survive with me being like this.

But anyways, enough about feeling sick, Dad and I are very excited about baby #2! I still can hardly believe there is a tiny little baby growing inside of me. At the moment Baby is about 2 cm long. TINY! I'm around 8-9 weeks along.

And yeah this is also why my blogging has been sooo pathetic lately. Hopefully once I start feeling better I'll blog more.

Oh and my worst fear is pretty much true. My chance to use a midwife is SLIM. :( I am really disappointed. I was testing a week before my period was due and as soon as I got a positive test I called ALL the midwives in Calgary and they all told me I was about #20 on the wait lists. :( I feel really bummed and upset about it but am hoping and praying that a miracle can happen.

Well I'm off to do some diaper laundry.
