The First Step Is a Doozy

Time spent in the hospital for dehydration. Various changes of medication. Miserable days where I spend all hours hugging the toilet. Constant exhaustion and a coldness in my bones.

Such is my reality right now.

I am not a happy pregnant woman. But then, it’s hard to be under the circumstances.

I am looking forward to spring, when my misery is over. Yes, it is a future of no sleep, but that’s not much different than right now when I must wake up several times a night to pray to the porcelain gods. It’ll be sleeplessness and sleeplessness alone then. A vast improvement.

I am pleased to be pregnant with number two. At least in theory (pleased number 2 is coming, not so pleased that it couldn’t be the Husband’s turn to be pregnant). It’ll definitely be the start of a new adventure.

Congratulations!! How exciting to have number 2 on the way!

And I'm so sorry it's such a rough pregnancy already!! Anything I can do to help? I remember how miserable I was during my last pregnancy.
