It’s pretty bad

It’s pretty bad

well i’m writing after a long blog absence to admit that things are really bad right now. the hyperemesis is kicking my butt. i’m not winning, and my insurance company isn’t helping, as they can’t give me the zofran i need.

thankfully, today my dr had some zofran samples (that someone brought in last week) and he feels that we should have a home health care person bring me zofran and hydration fluids by iv to our home. i’m not sure if it will be every other day or what. we’re waiting to hear from the company if the insurance company is going to ok this. maybe they’ll realize how sick i really am once they get that request.

the house is falling apart = well i take that back, since jerry won’t LET it fall apart. but it’s very hard on him right now. he really wishes this pregnancy hadn’t happened. he is depressed and stressed and i don’t blame him. this is soooo hard. i feel that i can barely get the bare minimum done for being a mother. the kids stay in their pajamas most days, and haven’t had a real meal in weeks. cooking anything is not possible. even microwaving things is hard on me.

i was googling today “how to survice hyperemesis” and got a few neat sites. it made me feel not so alone in this! i’m not crazy, this is real, and it STINKS.

i’m almost to the point of taking up someone’s offer at having the boys in childcare. of course no one’s offered that…i think it was in a dream.

please pray. i don’t know how long it will last this time…but i’m at the breaking point, and so is jerry.

in case anyone closeby is reading, the following would be helpful:

watching the boys for any amount of time so i can rest. in my house, at the park, at your house, whatever.


help with laundry.

help with housecleaning.

moral support.

grocery shopping.

  1. Jenn, I’m so sorry you are having such a rough time with this pregnancy. I hope you get feeling better real soon and are able to get some help. You and your family are in my prayers.

  2. Wish I lived closer to help. 🙁 … Hope you’re feeling better soon. When did it end with the boys?

  3. I am sorry you’re having such a bad time. Praying that help comes. Please don’t be so hard on yourself and tell Jerry to just let some things go. Laundry doesn’t have to be folded you know. This is a season and it will pass. You will have another wonderful baby to love and be loved by.
