9 weeks!

Well, I have broken the curse of my last pregnancy. I miscarried at 6 weeks in March and I am 9 weeks today. So, I feel that is a milestone. Of course, it is also 3.5 weeks until our doctor's visit that we get to hear the heartbeat.... but small steps now. I did get medication from the doc (well, PA) to help with nausea. It is a gel that you rub on your wrists.... The jury is still out on it. I have used it twice with one good and one less than desireable result....
So, with this pregnancy I am experiencing extreme nausea (no vomiting TG!). I had some food adversions, some intermitten nausea with the girls but nothing like this - and it has been going on for 5 weeks! I hope I am nearing the end of this.... I made dinner and have a small helping and feel like vomiting.... Thankfully I participate in our amazing Moms Club's freezer cooking nights or my family may starve. A little overdramatic maybe.... I do not feel like cooking anything and nothing sounds good.... I am also super-duper exhausted. I take down time at least once a day to sit and attempt to nap.... not too easy with a 4 yo and a 21 mo old running around. The other day my eldest layed on the couch with me (her choice), but her sister ran around me and talked the whole time! Ahhh!!! I just need a break. My loving H tells me that if I get too tired of it all, I can get a job. THANKS! Men just don't understand. SAHM's need off time, down time and breaks just the same as any other person, maybe more!!!
