I can't believe I did it! 20 weeks has been my halfway goal as I know it has for most of you. I feel like it was so long and hard to get here, but I wanted to post and say I did it and so can you!
My HG is millions of times better now than it was at the peak (6-10 weeks) and my last vomiting episode was at 17 weeks on the day. I am still nauseous 24/7 but I can live like this for 20 more weeks, I know I can. I can't believe I am past the worst and out the other side. I know I can never do this again so this will be my last pregnancy. I am OK with that decision.
By the way we just found out...It's another girl! I'm very happy, 2 girls seems really great to me. I was also so happy that after 4 months of not eating and taking meds, being so ill, the baby looked just fine on the ultrasound, she was 10 oz, in the 45th percentile. I'm only up 4 lbs from my PPW, but I did lose 8% of my body weight so I have actually gained an adequate amount.
I did it, I'm halfway, and you all can DO IT too!
