When will it end?

I had a couple of decent days, but yesterday turned into barf-a-rama again! I ran out of Zofran (anti-nausea/vomiting medicine), but I thought since I was approaching week 12, I could hold off on my refill.

Also, my insurance said they would cover a 30 day supply, with a refill in a month. However, their 30 day supply meant taking it once a day, when in fact, it's supposed to be taken twice a day. I ran out a few days ago, and when I called in my refill, Sam, my pharmacist, said I would have to pay out of pocket unless I got some authorization from my insurance. This stuff is super expensive so I didn't really want to pay out of pocket for it.

I called my insurance and raised a stink about being pregnant with triplets, and if they would prefer to pay for more hospital time after the babies were born because they were low birth weight, since I couldn't hold down food, instead of just forking out some money for the meds, they could certainly do that. I got an override on my policy! Jackpot! Billy picked up my refill last night after I texted him that I had thrown up 3 times.

I had him get me the medicine and also my latest food craving-veggie subs from Publix. I've eaten 3 or 4 or them in the last few days. I had one today at 10 a.m. (after eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast at 8), and I have another one sitting in the fridge for dinner. What is my deal with random foods? Why do the babies make me want this stuff? Not that it's bad, but it's just not what I regularly eat.

I'm hoping the sickness ends soon. I'm still doing fine weight wise. In fact, I went to the doctor today for an itchy rash I have on my back, and when they weighed me, I was up 8 lbs since my last visit there around this same time last year. How can I gain weight when I hardly eat, and I barf so much? I'm glad my little babies are thriving because I'm not doing so well. They better let up on me.

Ugh, I am sorry you still feel awful. But good for you for sticking it to the insurance company. I have really weird cravings, too. Not like kitty litter. But, I do go through phases. Mine all involve junk food, though. One day it is jelly bellies, the next it is toaster strudel. So, be happy you crave VEGGIE SUBS!!!
