Week 14 has started for me…Day 1 is so far so good. No complaints…Have been drinking High Protein Ensure drink which the doctor adviced. I hope I gain some pounds and stay hydrated enough tomorrow during my doc visit.

Alas, the doc said still i’m dehydrated and little off with ketones…Mannnn I hate this !!! Again got a cold stare from DH. Hope to regain hydration soon…

Weekend was nice and fun at friends place, prepared for her baby shower and had gala time with all our friends on Sunday. And rest of the week, went on ok with me throwing up atleast twice in the morning and I try to eat little rice for A/N and dinner. I want to gain some weight,,,which everyone says I will eventually when my nausea stops and I eat well. I look forward for those happy days in my life and get back to normalcy sooooooooonnnnnnnnn

Love ya, my jelly bean, cutie pie. I talk sometimes to my jelly bean and comfort my jelly bean saying it is all ok,,,mommy is doing fine,,,i want you to be a healthy baby and looking forward to see his/her facial expressions, smile and all those cutey cutey stuffs.. 🙂 Love ya my kutti kunju


Week 13 – Day one: Started with me throwing up early in the morning. Ugghhhhh, I feel sick 😦 I try to gulp in as much as Gatorade as I can as I have Doc apptmt tomorrow and dont want to get dehydrated, go to hosp, all that drama , not again !!! Inspite of me eating and holding up lil bit, there’s no weight gain in me 😦 I still weigh 99 lbs 😦

Day two: Its a bad bad day…I thrwo up even before I wake up from bed and counter increased to 4 times before 9AM. Panicked and paged the doc, as usual doc adviced to get admitted in hospital. But thought I will try to hold up for some more time n had pill and holding up until I see the doc in the evening. But at doc’s ofce, she said I’m dehydrated but not very severe. My DH wanted to stay at home and not at the hospital on Friday nite, so assured the doc that we will take care of ourselves and came home and had dinner n went to bed early at 8 30 PM

Day three: Trying to hold up not to throw up. I wanted to divert myself so went for Air show nearby. Spent the rest of day at friend’s house. For dinner, went to HSB and was successful in holding up to the smell of the food at the restaurant.

Day four: Looks good, but I feel lil cranky when I have Reglan…Need to check with doc on having this pill, during my next visit. Spent the A/N at our friend’s place and retired early to bed

Day Five: Monday,,,,uggghhhhhh!!! But I’m working from home today

Day Six: Remains the same

Day seven: I have completed 13 weeks.  🙂

Well, mmm,,,,yes. All these weeks its my horrible morning sickness which made me hate everything in this world…I mean, EVERYTHING !!! The worst affected, I should say, is my DH, who had real tough time in making me eat someting and to hold it up onto me. Its not in past tense anyways, I’m still nauseating and gaging, but of course, I feel lil better & it seems to reduce the number of times I throw up.


Today, I’m 12 weeks pregnant. Completeing my 1st trimester. Whooooooaaaa !!!

But past few weeks, I should say was really bad on me. Some of the few instances were,

Sep 18th – My first OB-GYN visit on my 9th week, didnt happen because my darlin hubby came late from work for Dr. apptmt, got held up in traffic and missed the apptmt. But luckily I saw the nurse who gave me a shock saying ‘You are really dehydrated, Please rush to the ER immediately’ . Tears rolled down my cheeks, my DH looked helpless, took me to the hospital and there I lay in the ER for 5 hrs… Never thought my MS will put me thru this 😦

Sep 26th – Went to work. My boss at work was quiet understanding reg my pregnancy and what I’m going thru coz of MS. Yes, I had to tell at work, I was left with no choice as I was  throwing up at work enormosly. They allowed me to take SL whenever I felt like. So, on 26th, I left to work, thinking of the weekend ahead, but I couldnt hold even water. As a result by noon, I threw up like 10 times. I called my doctor and there you go, she adviced me to go to ER directly. And yes, I had to get IV fluids again. This time my DH was really pissed with me 😦  I am helpless 😦


Sep 30th – We have changed my OB-GYN as the Cobb hospital was really far away from home and it wont work out during emergency situations, like me getting dehydrated often…This new Doctor’s office and hospital are less than 2 miles from my house. It was very convenient when we had my first OB-GYN visit to her on my 10th week. We saw our lil jelly-bean, wiggling 🙂 and listened to its heart beat. Goshhhhhh its the sweetest sound I ever heard and was in tears…But in the end, after testing my urine sample, she gave me a hard time saying that I’m dehydrated and had to get admitted immediately 😦 Dare not to look into my DH’s eyes…I went to the hospital, got admitted in private room. This time it was longer, I was there till 9 PM and came home after that. This MS suckssssssss
