16 weeks

I keep trying to trying to write this post, but I cannot seem to find the words. I seem to struggle with everything right now.

I will be sixteen weeks tomorrow, and I am still sick. I am tired of being sick, and I am really starting to despair.

I am taking some time off from work, as it all just got to be too much.

I am on some nausea medicine, which helps, but I really hate taking medicine while I am pregnant.

Speaking of medicine, I am off my anxiety medicine while I am pregnant, and am struggling with that also.

Please pray for us, that I will find relief, or at least acceptance, and that the baby will be healthy (so far the baby appears to be healthy, but both medication and anxiety in the mother can be hard on a developing baby).

Hang in there Mary! I hope you start to feel better soon. Try not to worry about the medicine you're taking, and focus on taking care of yourself, and getting plenty of rest. We're praying for you and the baby. love, Courtney

Oh, Mary I am so sorry to hear you are still so sick. I totally feel your pain, as your pregnancy sounds sooo much like mine with Jacinta. I still get anxious remembering it and she was almost an only child!

Not sure if this is helpful, but my doctor gives antibiotics (Clindamycin) if anti-nausea meds don't work. He believes that nausea can be caused by a subclinical infection/low-grade inflammation. After my nightmare first pregnancy, he suggested antibiotics at the beginning of my pregnancy with Serafina and the pregnancy was a breeze in comparison.

Keeping you in my prayers,
