The hyperemesis gravidarum has begun. Last night was the night that I finally threw up. I was brushing my back teeth and didn’t realize how sensitive my gag reflex was.
Now, whenever I eat anything, I get a horrible taste in my mouth. It makes me not want to eat. I’m nauseated most of the time. I stayed home from work today, and tomorrow is my doctor’s appointment. I’m pretty certain she will take me off work full time.
What was I thinking doing this again? Did I really think I could fight it off? Well? I can’t. I don’t want to eat, I don’t want to drink. I just want to crawl into a hole. I want the bad taste to go away, but the minty smell of the gum turns my stomach.
Last night for dinner my husband made me a sandwich. I had to force it down. The Grasshopper came over and kept asking for bites of my sandwich and I kept giving them to her because every bite that she took meant one less bite that I had to take.
And this isn’t even bad. What am I going to do when it really gets serious?
