Soup Is Good Food

And I'm living on it right now.

Y'all might want to buy stock in Campbell's, because it's the only thing that's appealing to me right now. Hopefully this won't last all nine months, but honestly, this is all I can eat. I ordered a won ton soup from King's Wok today and am having that for dinner tonight. Hopefully it'll taste good.

Things aren't going so great this time around. I'm sicker than I have ever been in my life other than a bout with food poisoning, and I can't take feeling this way. I tried Unisom but it didn't help enough to make continuing it worthwhile to me. Also, they no longer have the regular Unisom at Target, and they only have the soft gels which can't be broken in half. They had no store brand.

I'm tired. ALL of the time. Given that the fall TV season just started this is a bit inconvenient, because I'm trying desperately some nights to stay up until 10. I fell asleep last Thursday night before Kitchen Nightmares was over. I did manage to make it through Fringe this week (watch this show). 

I have no energy to do anything around the house. None. I made a casserole the other night and tonight is the third night Rich will have it for dinner (I'm having the aforementioned soup). I just don't have it in me to do anything at all. I did manage to fold laundry and do the dishes yesterday. That was it.

I have more laundry to do tomorrow. How it'll get done I have no idea.

This baby is kicking my ass. I just don't know what to do. I have weeks left of this to contend with, and it's going to suck. 

My first appointment is on the 30th of this month, and I'll report back if they have any useful suggestions. 

Have a great Thursday!

You need a girlfriend over, girlfriend. If I were anywhere near you, I'd come over. I want to do your laundry and dishes and shit. I wanna watch Livvie while you nap and then engage you in fabulous stimulating adult conversation.

If Scotty were still alive I'd have him beam me over.

Ditto what Catherine said.

Did your headologist ever call you back? Wonder if any meds you are on are increasing your nausea?

OH yea... I remember all that. So fun... :-/

All I can say is this will pass.

I am so very sorry Julie. My second pregnancy did the same to me for the first trimester, as you know. I could only eat Campbell's Double Noodle soup for about 2 months. Gah. Sorry the Unisom didn't do the trick. I hope your appt brings some better suggestions (but really, why wait that long? Why not call and harass them until they help you out?).

Hang in there chick ...

Wish I was closer some I could come give you some well-deserved TLC. It's tough, but you can get through this. Hang in there.
