2008 off to a pukey start

I was just getting used to be nauseous and having to dry heave a lot, but unfortunately, my symptoms have progressed. I started actually throwing up yesterday. In the afternoon, I had a few canned pears and some wheat thins, and about an hour later, they came back to haunt me. I guess I'll remove those from the list of items I'm actually able to tolerate.

Needless to say, I didn't make it to any New Year's Eve festivities, even though I had planned to visit two parties. I had to send Billy out to ring in the New Year without me. I stayed home and watched the marathon session of "John & Kate Plus Eight" on TLC.

If you haven't seen this show, it's about a couple that went through infertility treatments to have a child, and they ended up with twins the first time they tried. Then, they wanted one more, but got a set of sextuplets! Their lives are total chaos at all times. Watching the show makes me feel better about having three.

So far, I haven't vomited again today, but somehow, I don't think that will last much longer. The overwhelming feeling of nausea usually doesn't reach it's pinnacle until about 4 or 5 p.m. Couple that with the extreme level of constipation, and it's a recipe for disaster. There's just nowhere for my waste to go.

Our home is currently a disaster because we've been de-cluttering to get ready to re-list our condo on January 6th. I don't feel like doing anything. Therefore, there are a bunch of half-packed boxes all over the place. I'm hoping to get motivated soon to get some work done. We really need to get rid of our condo and move into a house. This place ain't big enough for us, Winnie, and triplets.

Billy left for the Sugar Bowl today so I'm on my own for a couple of days. Since Billy is out of town, Dr. Wagner, aka Kibby, has to take care of my shots tonight and tomorrow. Yes, I still have to do that progesterone shot every night. That will go on for about another month. I'm now 8 weeks along, and the shots last until 11 or 12 weeks. My butt is so bruised and sore, but with all of my other symptoms, I don't even think about my hiney.

Happy to New Year to everyone! I think 2008 is going to be a crazy and exciting year for the Zeigler household.
