I've been relapsing, again, after a decent Saturday and half of a decent Monday. I spent most of today on the couch, writhing in misery. The nausea was complimented by a pounding migraine and ridiculous neck pain today. I took a 4mg Zofran ODT (I'm now taking it as needed, which is just a few times a week - I should NOT be complaining, I know, I'm doing EXTREMELY well compared to others and even compared to my previous two pregnancies) and some Tylenol. I managed to drink some FOODMENT decaf iced tea END FOODMENT. I immediately felt guilty for all of the above. It's completely irrational, I know. Zofran, Tylenol, and tea are all pretty benign.
Because of the guilt, I suffer through it most days, vommitting 4-6 times a day. I'm usually mildly dehydrated. And after losing nine pounds first tri, regaining two in the past few weeks, I've now lost those two pounds over the course of the weekend. The fact of the matter is, I probably NEED the Zofran. And I'm fighting it.
I'm not gaining, I'm barely even stable. And I'm 16 weeks.
I'm not sure what I'm hoping to accomplish by posting. I just needed the vent I suppose. It's been one of those days, for sure.
