Good news came today. I went in for the screening for Down Syndrome, Spina Bifida, and other chromosomal disorders on Tuesday. I got the call from the doctor today that all is well. She said I have the health age and risk factors of a 20 year old. I just wish they knew if I am having a girl or not :)

I thought my sickness had subsided but it reared its ugly head again yesterday and today. I threw up in the kitchen sink last night, rinsed my mouth, and continued to cook dinner. I think I deserve a medal! I think all pregnant ladies do, this is the best experience of my life but I don't think I really understood how hard it was going to be.

  1. They make these awesome vitamin B hard sour apple candies that keep the vomiting at bay. They make red cherry suckers like that, too, but they were so sweet they triggered it more often than not...I'm trying to remember what they're called...your OB probably has free samples. The green apple ones work best, and they're better 'coz they're lozenges and you don't have to walk around with a sucker stick hanging out of your mouth. :) You should be able to buy them behind the counter at your local pharmacy. (I'm not sure why they're kept behind the counter, but they are...)
