Did I get your attention with that title?
Yes, this week saw me living in my mother’s basement and popping pills. Zofran to be exact. Actually generic Zofran, which takes a huge chunk out of the original price of $600 for a 30 day supply.
Why was I in my mother’s basement?
After my grandpa’s funeral, my husband and oldest son had to go to Boy Scout camp, which left me with just my 11 year old daughter and a handful of littles. Since weeks 9 and 10 are typically really rough for me, we decided to stay behind at my mom’s house while they went on to camp. It gave me an extra set of hands and the distraction of my mom’s company.
So, you might be wondering…
Does Zofran work?
8 years ago I took it when I was pregnant with my 2nd daughter. It wasn’t the miracle drug I wanted it to be, but it did allow me to sit up without throwing up. I still threw up. I was still nauseous. I chose not to take it with any other pregnancies because it is so cost prohibitive. Now that there is a generic I thought I would try it once again.
The jury is still out. Maybe next week I’ll have a better assessment for you.
We also had a bit of a scare this week. I started bleeding on Tuesday. Thankfully, it was just from the subchorionic bleed I always have, but still after 2 miscarriages at 10 weeks, there were a lot of things going through my mind.
Other baby updates:
*I hate food. It is a necessary evil and I try to get exactly what I want because that is usually the only thing that will stay down, but for the most part food makes me mad.
*My first “real” appointment is next week. Yay!
*The computer makes me sick. It never fails to make me throw up, thus the reason for my lack of posting.
*I sleep with a fan blowing directly on me so I can actually use the covers. Otherwise, I’m hot…all. the. time.
*If you came to visit me, I would be in my pajamas with my hair piled on top of my head. And if you came on the right day, I might have even brushed my teeth.
*I don’t live in my mother’s basement anymore, but I sure wish I could bring her home with me.
