How fast can I get to the Bathroom?

As you know I am pregnant. I thought i was only 5 wks along and i agreed to take the kiddos to the ocean for the weekend with family. Bad idea, like super awful bad idea. The morning we left BAM morning sickness struck, and struck and struck. It was bad the whole trip. When I got home I got to the doctor and i was over 6 wks, I also have Hyperemesis gravidarum again. I had it with the girls as well but it's worse this time around. For those of you who do not know what it is:
Nausea and vomiting are common in pregnancy, occurring in 70-85% of all gravid women.1 Hyperemesis gravidarum is a severe and intractable form of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy. It is a diagnosis of exclusion and may result in weight loss; nutritional deficiencies; and abnormalities in fluids, electrolyte levels, and acid-base balance. The peak incidence is at 8-12 weeks of pregnancy, and symptoms usually resolve by week 20 in all but 10% of patients. Uncomplicated nausea and vomiting of pregnancy is generally associated with a lower rate of miscarriage, but hyperemesis gravidarum may affect the health and well-being of both the pregnant woman and the fetus.

It is terrible and you DO NOT want it. Ugh I thought I was going to lay down on the floor and die. Throwing up every 30 mins all day and all night, after about 3 days it's a trip to the ER for you. With the girls DH had to take me to the ER twice before I could get in to see a Doctor, I was so dehydrated.

I had to call my parents and go stay with them, because I can not take care of the girls or myself. There next door neighbor and a friend of mine was able to get me in to see her OB and he put me on meds, Zofran among other things. The pills weren't working so he put me on a pump, which looks like this :

A home health nurse came out to show me how to use it. The meds are in the bag you carry around and there is a needle in your leg that pumps in the meds. Every morning you have to stick yourself and put in a new needle in a new spot. So after a week my leg looks like this:


That's after it had been a few days and had time to heal. Even on the IV pump I was still throwing up. I know they say that the more you throw up the stronger the pregnancy but to me this is not a good beginning...


Big Surprise!!

Guess what?!?!?!?





I told DH on the phone since he is already overseas, he said to make sure so I took several test. =)
Then i went over to my brothers for a big family swim party and
I printed out a card for my parents that said:

"First there were two,

Then there were four,

Now it's time to make room for one more"

It took them a few minutes to get it but then there were Hugs all around.

We are so excited!
