4 months to go

Hi friends,
thanks for the concern and for wondering why I haven't been posting. Well, as my hubby puts it, the last couple of months of life weren't funny (at all)!  I was throwing up pretty much most of the time, and hung around long enough at the desk and in the cyberworld to finish my work... before going back into a horizontal, or worse, a 90 degree position bent over the toilet bowl! I've come to appreciate deeper bowls, they have less of a backsplash when your stomach contents come hurtling out.
So, life is much better now, I have some energy back and some digestive powers back... it's all good and I can type smiley faces again :)
The reason of course for the weeks of tummy upsets and fatigue is that we will be having a kid in 4 months God willing! It is finally sinking in, thanks to ultrasound technology (you get to see that there really IS an organism living in your tummy) and the fact that I'm feeling better in general. The complexity and perfection of the pregnancy process so far awes and amazes me, it's all very precise and well thought out, and we humans contribute very little to it, if anything at all!

 I think this nausea experience has given me a greater emphathy for people who have had to do chemotherapy.. because a friend who did go through it shared her experience,  and while it lasts (for her) a week after the treatment, it is certainly a challenging time.

  3. I empathise Lin. I was sick for about 3.5 months this time too which is an improvement from the 4 months plus the last time. I'm at 30 weeks now and am glad the nausea seems to have subsided!
