Where Is Everyone?

I hate to start off sounding whiny, needy, and pathetic, but I am certainly all three tonight. I know it’s the weekend and nobody is around in Blogworld on the weekends, but I really needed the support this weekend.

Now I’m not only worried about the UTI causing problems with the pregnancy, but the medicine is making me super sick. I’ve never been as nauseous as I was this morning. I am sore everywhere from all the retching. And I’m terrified tomorrow morning will be a repeat. I was truly physically incapable of caring for PJ much of the day. I’m glad M was around and willing to take up the slack (I think I scared him a little this morning when he saw how sick I was), but he can’t take the week off work to take care of us.

I am faced with the prospect of truly needing help during the day. I’ve limped along so far, even though this was a worry all along. Despite thinking about what to do if this situation ever happened, I still have no solutions. I’ve never felt more isolated and helpless. I have nowhere to turn. For once, asking my in-laws for help is looking like a great idea, but they wouldn’t be able to help before next weekend at the earliest. By then, I’ll be done with this medicine and the morning sickness will probably be easing up at last. The help will be too little, too late. I just wish I knew what to do.

    I know you don’t know me….but I’ve commented here a few times before, and I know EXACTLY what you’re going through. I can offer some suggestions, if you want. I had severe hyperemesis through my entire pregnancy (both of them, actually!) So if you want someone to talk to…I’d be happy to e-mail with you, or you can drop me a note and I’ll give you my number if e-mailing is difficult right now!

    I’m always around too, even on the weekends. If you need someone to vent to, you can definitely email me.

    I really hope things get less stressful for you.

    Hope you’ve made it through the day today. I don’t know about morning sickness, but a uti on it’s own is awful!!

    I hope your feeling better today. I know this is awful to live through. And asking for help is the hardest thing to do.
    Call your local Visiting Nurses Association or LaLeche League. If they can’t help you, they should be able to find someone who can…For your sake and PJs, I hope you’re able to find some relief. STAT!
