New Personal Record!

w00t! I managed to make it 12 hours without vomiting! Sure, nine of those 12 I was sleeping but that doesn't matter, I've woken up to vomit before. I'm just so excited. I woke up this morning and ate...but I got sick within 10 minutes. I ate again about 30 minutes later because my stomach was growling and I've managed to keep that down for an hour and a half now.

A week from tomorrow I'm officially in the second trimester. I worry so much about this little guy. Kenny keeps telling me that he's taking what he needs from me and not to worry, but I do. It's my job to make sure he's ok and safe for the next 30 weeks. (Wow, 30 weeks sounds like such a short time! I'm sure T thinks it sounds like an eternity though.)

I've been dehydrated so I've been trying to keep as much fluids in me as much as possible. Yesterday I kind of zoned out behind the wheel of the van as I was pulling in the driveway. I steered wide and ended up on the curb. Kenny hasn't let me drive since and I haven't wanted to. It was a wake up call for me though. I emailed and called all my professors. They've all agreed to give me extensions for this week's work. I've been sleeping most of the past two days and eating as much as I can keep down whenever I can eat. I've been drinking as much as possible too. I ordered a tincture called Stress Relief for Pregnancy and I'll be taking that when I need it. I'm also going to continue resting whenever I can.

Beyond that, I'm doing well. I'm going to go rest some more. Hopefully I'll feel like eating again soon. I hope so.
