I am feeling better today! I actually have (had) a little bit of energy and managed to clean my bathroom (the basics), clean a few things in the kitchen, scrub the kids’ fabric chair that the dog threw up on, and do a load of laundry. Generally, that’s a pretty pathetic little list, but for me – now – that’s huge!
My nausea seems to be doing better during the day as long as I don’t go without eating something bland for very long. It’s never very far away, but it seems that I can keep it at arm’s length if I’m careful, without meds, which is a big improvement. Two days ago, I decided to request some phenergan to use at night, which is when my “morning” sickness seems to be worse. It makes me super tired – it literally knocks me out about an hour after I take it – so why not take it at night? It doesn’t seem to work as well as the zofran for me, but it helps take the icky “edge” off and I can sleep. I’ve been going to bed early the past couple nights and getting around 10 hours of sleep and I think that helps me during the day too.
Anyways, I am just super happy today and reminded that this is just a passing phase and will try to keep this in mind when tomorrow is another not-so-good day.
Thanks for listening to my ramble!
