Much better day.

First - Fibercon worked. The box said that it would work in 12 to 72 hours. I went to bed at 8:00 after dozing on the couch for an hour. Within two hours, I was in pain, and went to the bathroom and lawzy, did I poop. We'll suffice it to say I visited the bathroom three times overnight and the scale was over 2 pounds lighter this morning. Yeah, for real.

Second - I tried harder to eat more, even when it seemed gross, and it really did help. I think that the overwhelming amount of sleep made the nausea easier and the food aversions less severe. Or they are just tapering off. Dunno. Still have food aversions and still had nausea today, both before and after eating, but it was a far cry from yesterday's horrifyingness.

Third - I got the big thing done that had to be done. My list for Monday is godawful, but I really feel good about getting this done. My confidence in myself and my job performance has taken a real hit since I got a very mediocre review and pregnancy brain hasn't helped matters at all, nor has feeling so sick and being worried it's affecting my job performance. So getting this done was a big boost to my ego. I needed it. Now I just need to buckle down Monday and move through my list.

Hi. I found your blog recently and wanted to say how sorry I am about your losses and that I'm happy for you that you are pregnant again. I recently lost my daughter due to cervical problems and hope to be pregnant again soon. So I'll probably become a follower over here for inspiration.
