If anyone's awake I could use some prayers right now!

((**UPDATED at bottom**))
Okay tonight I feel just awful. It's 11pm. I am so close to throwing up but I am scared if I start I won't be able to stop. It's turning into hyperemisis again... just like with my first. Not yet, but I'm scared it's coming. Only with her it came on suddenly. This time it's just gotten worse and worse every day until last night I felt so close to vomiting but didn't. Then this morning again so close to losing it. The other day I did lose it and vomited for an hour and had burst blood vessels all around my eyes the next morning from heaving so hard. Once I start I have trouble stopping. Now tonight I am not going to be able to fight it. My 3 year old is in the bathroom so I am trying to hold off until she goes back to bed. We only have one bathroom. I don't want to scare her either.
"Oh Dear God! Please help me not to puke until my daughter goes back to bed! And please help me to stop puking shortly and not just keep on vomiting all night long like with my daughter!" (I'm so afraid of that happening again. I have kids to take care of this time. I can't be in the bathroom puking 24-7.)
Hurry Chicklet hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
I have that weird tingling feeling the back of your mouth gets just before you hurl...

Well it's official. I couldn't stop throwing up for several hours last night and most of the day so far today. My husband has left work early to pick up my prescription. I hate meds. I really do. I would rather go a natural route if at all possible. But this morning I started throwing up water too. And it's kinda getting dangerous for me and baby once I can't keep down liquids either. Thankfully I am not heaving at the moment. Usually it's bad in the late mornings around 10am, and then very worst in the evenings around 6 or 7pm. The fact that it was worse this morning than last night, and in fact worse every day this week than the preceeding day, is a very bad sign. So I broke down and called the midwives this morning between heaving into a bucket and they, knowing how my first pregnancy was, just called me in a prescription. Which my dear husband is on his way to get for me now.
Right now I'm trying to get the kids to nap so I can nap too. Wish me luck. I'm going to post some fun pregnancy related stuff later tonight if the meds help enough. ;)


  1. I hope the nausea will not last too long this time. I am praying for you!

  2. I know that my advice may sound weird, but have you tried smiling. Whenever I get the urge to throw up I smile real big and keep looking at myself into the mirror and focusing on the smile and not the urge to puke. I heard that smiling will take the trigger away from throwing up. It always works for me. After a little while, the urge to puke goes away and then you can stop smiling or smile for real :) Hope you get better.

  3. HUGS!!!! I am so sorry you are having such a go at this. I wish there was more that I could do for you. Hang in there and I hope the meds start to hlep some.


I love Comments! ♥ Please remember to mind your manners though. ;)
