So, for the past 3 weekends now, we've had plans and had to cancel because I KEEP GETTING SICK. I'll feel fine and then eat and them BAM, I'm throwing up. So anyway, today we're supposed to go to a Haunted House. DH doesn't even really get into Halloween, but it's my fav holiday - I LOVE going to Haunted Houses. I was totally fine this morning, then within the past hour I just feel like throwing up. I sent him a text (he's still at work) and told him I didn't feel well but I'd keep him posted.
I just know he's getting sick and tired of this. It's like we can't do anything unless it's right then and not planned because of my morning sickness. He's been SO understanding, but..this just makes me feel like crap. I never back out of anything - if I make plans, I'm there....and for 12 weeks now I've been backing out of everything. Even work. I work full time and I don't think I've worked more than 34 hours in a week for awhile. Hoping they don't kill my insurance because of that. Everyone has been great about it - even my boss. He's come in early JUST so I can leave. But it makes me feel super bad.
Jessica - You have been so so so sick; I don't think anyone blames you (or that you can blame yourself) for not being able to do stuff. I hope you feel better soon, but in the meantime, I don't think that you should feel too bad about something you have no control over.
-Alissa, mom to Tristan (5) and Reid (the baby!)
Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I agree with Alissa.. you have no control over getting sick because of a pregnancy.. I'm sorry you have to keep cancelling everything.
Has DH said anything about it? Is he getting frustrated?
If I were you, I'd find ways to make up for the cancelling.. maybe a special dinner of the foods he loves? GIve him a chance to go to an outing with his buddies for a whole day? Something that's different.. special.. ENcourage him to do something he really wants to do.
You will get past this.. and hopefully sooner than later! Until then, try try try to push through it and enjoy the time for just you and DH.. once this baby comes, that alone time is soooo few and far between! But don't overdo anything!!
Hang in there girlie.. it'll be gone soon!! Fingers crossed!!
Well, I ended up feeling okay. So we went to the Haunted House. His mom and his little cousin came too. We had to wait a little bit because they were only taking one group of ten at a time. But it was well worth only 5 bucks a person. They had a little hayride to the beginning of the woods, then you walk through the woods and catch the hayride back. Well, his little cousin was freaking out the whole time. I didn't wanna fall, so I was up the guides *** because she had a light LOL but I missed a lot of the action because I was concentrating on the light. Anyway, DH's cousin ended up going on DH's shoulders because he wouldn't even walk. He talked crap the whole time before and as SOON as we hit the hayride coming out he was like.. Well, I wasn't scared! I didn't even scream! ..I'm sitting here like.. dude, Tim had to put you on his shoulders because you were too scared to walk! It actually wasn't that scary - I mean, for him maybe...I've worked a couple Haunted Houses and I know you always go after the little people LOL. Anyway, we got back to the building.. DH noticed I had a funny look asked me what was wrong. I had to puke, but there were people around, so he went with me around the side of the building and I puked there.
What? I held it in through the ENTIRE ride! And it was just a little bit. His cousin talked the whole way home about how un-scary it was. But I had a good time.
Then I had nightmares last night about DH cheating on me. I LOVE my non-stop brain. Really I do.
I have had dreams of DH cheating on my too!!
I'm so sorry that you can't make it thru the day without vomitting! Dh has no other choice but to be patient, that's the way I look at it. It's not like this is something you can control!!
I know I can't control. He knows that too. Yet I generally end up throwing up, crying and telling him I'm sorry. He always says I have nothing to be sorry about.. I mean he is really understanding, but.. it's just getting old that EVERY time we have plans, I get sick. It's almost like, the spur of the moment stuff is better... I can fool my body into thinking we don't have plans that day..LOL
I'm right there with you, everything has to be spur of the moment b/c of me getting sick. We make plans but we always go by the "we'll plan to do that but we'll just see how it goes when it comes time". I'm sure your being more self conscious about it then your husband is actually getting upset about it. He's probably more understanding then you give him credit for. I totally understand where you're coming from though. I feel guilty constantly about messing up plans and our weekends all the time. I said something to my husband and he told me that I'm growing a human and if we need to just hang out at home then thats what we'll do. Dont be so hard on yourself and if your husband does get mad remind him that your body is going through crazy changes and its nothing you're doing intentionally. Hang in there chicky and feel better soon!!! Glad you guys got to go to the haunted house though! That sounds fun!!!
I am so happy you were able to go. Sorry you still had a moment of sickies. Blech!
I am starting to feel a little better, still nauseated--but way less vomitting. I am a few days ahead of you so maybe you will feel better soon. I also just started taking zantac at night (75mg). I was sick for 7 months with Sam. I started to get obvious heartburn at around 7 months and started taking zantac. Poof, the sickies went away. SO, I started zantac this week to see if maybe that is why, and the nausea is getting better. Check with your doc, it might be worth a try.
