9 weeks 

According to the Ultrasound I'm 9 weeks. It says 8 weeks on the top, but that's based on my LMP dates which assumes I ovulated 2 weeks after my period- I didn't, I ovulated the week after thus the extra week.

Day 47 

One of the residents at work is practicing her ultrasound skills so today I had the first "pictures" taken of my "bean". It looks like a bean. Seriously. She measured it at about 1.22cm, and though we could see the heartbeat we couldn't get a good measure of it. She is training after all.
Now if I could just get rid of the vomiting and this dang cold.

Day 45 

I think it's day 45. I'm too freaking tired to count. This cold is kicking my ass. Seriously. I can't stop sneezing of barfing and just generally feeling MISERABLE. I had my first Doctors appointment today, unfortunatly he had an emergency surgery and had to reschedule. Blah. And the fact that I threw up twice in the waiting room didn't give them any incentive to give me zofran. Blech. Sorry I'm just grumpy. Good news is that I kept down two bowls of chicken soup.

Day 43 

I have a cold. This in itself is not such a big deal. Except for the coughing. Because when I cough I gag, and when I gag- you guessed it. Food has become a challenge. Nothing is appetising because I am sure it won't stay down, but I know I have to keep full otherwise I will puke. But Actually eating is a choore. It took me almost half an hour to eat two pieces of toast this AM, only to throw it up a couple of hours later. All I can hope is that when I see the doc Thursday he'll have something to offer me.

Day 40 

It seems that work makes me sick. Seriously. I was feeling ok today, a bit tired, but I figured if I stayed away from dairy I'd be fine. I woke up craving pancakes. And I figured they were safe so I had them. Gooood. However I was at triage and I was so busy I was unable to nibble, my stomach got empty, and by the time I got a chance to fill it again the damage was done. I feel bad for the people in the triage hallway. I guess the throwing up was a bit loud and they were surprised to see me come out and go back to work. Ce la vi.

Baby Journal Day 39 

Well today was the end of the non-puke streak. I didn't drink my chocolate milk this AM because I figured I'd give my stomach a day off from the yucky feeling. I had an AMAZING oriental chicken salad for lunch- man that tasted so good. Unfortunatly my downfall was the strawberry ice cream I shared with Erica for dinner. I actually had bought a chicken and cheese calzone thingy, but the icecream looked and tasted SOOO good. I will admit, I lasted almost 6 hours before I lost my chunks. Lemme tell you, rice, crackers and ice cream taste TERRIBLE comimg up.

Day 37 

Well the chocolate milk experiment was touch and go today. It did stay down, but I felt sicker than I've felt almost all week. At least I know I can get some calcium in, even if I feel like death warmed over when I do so.

Baby Journal Day 36 

Day three no vomiting YAY. Some say that chocolate milk is better than regular so i bought some today and will try it tomorrow. Lets see if I can keep that down. I also found out that the juice smoothie place at school has 30-40% of daily calcium (non pregnant requirement that is). And I got some calcium added applesauce, so at least I am getting a little in.
I had a lamp chop ( a tiny one) and a couple of baby zucchini for dinner. Very tasty but my belly doesn't like me too much now. Homefully the bucket by my bed lasts the night unused.

Dear Lynn 

I know readers this seems a little strange. I don't know if Lynn is reading this blog, but she found it once, and I'd like to know she might find this message some day.

I am sure that you dislike me as much as I dislike you. I am not sure why it is that a man cheats we blame the other women. I sure as hell didn't know he was involved with you- he kept telling me that you were always on his ass to date and he couldn't work out to get rid of you without you slashing his tires. That obviously wasn't true. And you probabley didn't know about me.
What I want to say isn't easy. What happened is done and can't be changed. But if you love him the way I have loved him- and love him still- then forgive him. Make him tell you the truth about everything, and then forgive him and go on with your lives together. Maybe he'll go back to being the man I knew and loved and so the stories I tell his child will be true.
In the end I may have his child, but you have his love. The one thing I will never again have.

Start of Week 5- Day 35 

Well today is day 2 of no throwing up (at least yet). The cramps are bad today, but not worse then I have had before. I find I am so damn cold that my fingernails are blue and I can't seem to warm up at all. I'm also a bit dizzy, but that could be the fact that in spite of keeping food down I am not eating a whole lot.

Well my trip to Australia was fantastic- not long enough by far. Between spending time with my Dad, Mum and Grandparents, I feel like I barely got to do anything.
But in the end I came back to bigger news.

I'm expecting a child, due around Nov 5th. Jon is a bigger jerk then I expected, and god help me I still love the guy. I'm nauseous, crampy ans scared....
The good news is yesterday was the first day I didn't throw up, so I hope we can repeat that feat today.
