I'm still alive....I think

We've been home from our vacation in Montana since Sunday. I know...I've been missing in action for a few days. I have a good excuse though. My head has been in the toilet. Ya know, people speak of this "morning sickness" that's supposed just make you queasy and crackers and gingerale fix it -- well that's not what I've got. I've tried the crackers, the dry toast, the gingerale, the gingersnaps, and all that. Ya well those came up too. If it went in...it would come out. So I stopped putting stuff in to see if that would help. Nope. I tried going to work on Monday. Made it most of the day. Not so cool throwing up in a public toilet. Finally gave up and went to the doctor. **Side Note: You see I have more than one sickness going on. I'm trying to get over a head cold, 3 different infections (yes three), and then morning sickness.** So Dr. V told me that it looks like I'm over infection #1, gave me a prescription for infection #2, told me to stop taking the antibiotics for infection #3 cuz it was making infection #2 worst and adding to the nausea. He told me to try gravol for the morning sickness (or all day sickness), but just in case that didn't work he gave me a prescription to stop the vomiting. Well the gravol went it...it came out. No way would it stay down. So after throwing up more than 10 times in a single day (I realize Casey you probably beat that.), Tim took me to Shoppers Drug Mart at 10 pm to fill the prescription. And that stuff is AMAZING! Very expensive, but amazing! I can eat again.

Seven weeks tomorrow!! I've got my first prenatal August 8th. Not that I haven't already seen the doctor 3 times in the last 3 weeks, but at least this is a planned visit. His head nurse and I are on a first name basis--we speak on the phone even when I'm on vacation.
