The surgery was pretty rough... all the meds they gave me made me vomit during the surgery, which was pretty bad while strapped down to the table. But once the baby was out (other than the pain) I felt so much better. I had only a liquid diet for dinner a few hours after the surgery, but after midnight I had my first meal that was not complicated by HG. The only thing available was a salad that was mostly frozen, but considering I hadn't eaten in a full day by then, it was the best salad I'd ever had. LMAO
My pain meds have been making me nauseous, but other than that, I feel really good. For the first time in months, I haven't had any anxiety about vomiting. Its weird that I'm done with HG, and NOW I'm okay with getting sick. At this point, DH has decided that he doesn't want any more kids... just when I decided that I could go through this again, even if its only one more time. Well, maybe one of us will change our minds in the future, but for now, I'm thrilled to be a mom again. DD1 is thrilled to be a big sister and she's already stepping into the role and helping me out.
Thanks for all the support, everyone. I couldn't have made it through this pregnancy without every one of you. HUGS to everyone still suffering.... if you ever want to chat with me, feel free to send me a pm. Love you, ladies!
