hi sweetie!!! sorry i'm late in welcoming you!!!! I'm so proud of you making it so far with your chin up. you look STUNNING in all of those pictures, and I can't believe how far we've both come since we met at the mall that day a few years ago.
Will be here to support you all the way. Drink, rest, and drink so more.

I got some fantastic news last night from my our hrd person at work! People from my company have donated 45 hrs of PTO to me! I about fell out of my chair! This will probably sound ridiculous to most of you- but if you had HG you may know what I mean when I say that it got me so worked up/emotional that I almost threw up, lol!
I am still completely in shock at the generosity of people. I work for a pretty big company and have for 8 yrs this summer (minus one year I lived out of state) so I know a lot of people and was hopeful- but I never imagined this much generosity! Anyway, I was SO excited that I had to come share!
HOLY cow that is awesome!!! 45 hours is WONDERFUL!!! Now to see if the company will 'match' it j/k. What wonderful people you must work with!
Wow, Kasey, that is great news! You must be very well-loved there.
What a relief!
I am having a blah day today... I don't want this baby to come before it is ready, and hopefully not till after Tuesday (my ds2 2nd bday) but after that it is fair game!
I feel so fuzzy headed the last couple days ffrom the zofran, but at the same time, the nausea is increasing- so I either sit and feel sick and don't eat or drink enough, and hope it passes, or have to start taking the phenargen too... I would really rather not do that, then all I will want to do is to sleep all of the time!
But it sure would be nice to sleep through a whole entire night... The reflux is starting to make my throat hurt now (and my left ear strangely enough!) I woke up in the middle of the night gagging just waiting to get sick, but it didn't happen (thanks to the zofran) but I almost wished that it would have, so I could get it over with and go back to bed. Though that is usually not how it works with this, once I start I seem to keep going with it... yuck.
And my nurse got back to me about my reflux perscription- they can't do anything. Both of the meds that my doc would give me are now available otc, so I just have to suck it up and buy them. Thankfully it will only be $20, but that is a lot compared to free!
I am SO glad that this is my second to last weekend working. I really need to go on maternity leave- I feel SO b*&%$y half of the time- being exhausted and sick makes it hard to care for other people! I keep it all in my head for the most part- just vent to a couple of my good friends that I work with- but I know I am not my usual self with my consumers, and I don't like that *Sigh* Makes me feel disappointed with myself.
My ctx that I was having before are still here, but annoying me more now though. I think it is only because of my already not-so-cheery mood though I am almost ready for them to accomplish something, and until then I wish they would just stop for a couple of days!
Soooo, sorry to be such a downer, I just needed to get all that out!
Wow, Kasey, I just read through your lodge and you are one strong woman! I had no idea what you've been going through. It's okay to have some crappy days, especially after everything you've been trhough this time around. I hope you're feeling better. That's fantastic that you have such wonderful co-workers that donated you some pto time!

I'm so late in saying this but... welcome to your lodge! Your children are soooo cute!
Ugh. Need a day off!
Yesterday we went to Wal-Mart, which is always an adventure anyway But it was especially adventurous b/c they built a new (Super) one and it is directly behind the old one which they are tearing down. SO you either walk all the way around from BFE, or you get a ride on a golf cart or trolley. We got a ride. I felt like I couldn't find anything, though things were set up pretty much the same except for the added grocery area. The kids thought it was the GRANDEST adventure EVER. It took forever!
But the good thing was that the rx that I needed that is now otc, and the lady at the pharmacy told me it would be 19 something- I got a 30 day supply for $2.97. Wish I would have checked that out last week before the reflux started to hurt! Oh well, Good for me!
Today is my youngest baby's second birthday! It was a pretty crummy day as far as how I felt, but I had to rally the troops so we could run to the local grocery b/c I forgot to get cocoa y'day, and it is hard to make a cocoa cake without that! So, we went to the store... again. Not so bad today, since ti wasn't Wal-Mart, but still... a lot to do!
I felt like a super bad mom today- SO short tempered, and just exhausted. So, we skipped school this afternoon and took a nap instead I was falling asleep while trying to just do reading with the kids- I figured I better nap!
But 2yo had a great time doing birthday- he LOVED his gifts, lol one of which is an undershirt of 5yos that she colored a clown on and decided to give to him as a gift!
So after all of the excitement and out of the house-ness of the last four days, I am taking tomorrow OFF from going out. Which means I'll bust my tail in the house since it has been neglected, but at least then I can sit down as needed, get some real school done with the kids, get some laundry done. Exciting
Aw happy birthday Noah! I hope you enjoyed your cocoa cake!
Hope you get to rest tomorrow Kasey. Since you'll be home anyway, maybe you could upload some birthday pics to show us j/k, you should rest.
Wow, Kasey, what a story! I'm so sorry the pregnancy has been so rough. You are such a strong woman!

TTC #2 on hold. Cycles screwed up. Doctor suggested BCP for a few months to see if that straightens it out. Let's hope so!
