I'm glad you are embracing hope. I'm hoping right along with you...May is a beautiful month to bring a baby into the world.

Valerie

Hi, I'm a lurker.

I've been reading your blog for a while and was thrilled to read that you're still feeling sick =)

I just wrote the word "Bumble" on a piece of paper and taped it to my desk so I remember to say a prayer for you and your little one every day.

I hope you do indeed bring home a baby in May. Just think, your child will be one of those lucky kids who has a birthday toward the end of the school year.

Tina

I am so glad you are able to welcome hope in, even for a little bit. I am having a terrible time with that right now..

Hope you are feeling better soon... I was very nauseous all of the time with my PG with DS, and it was very hard to function (called out sick from work more time than I did in the 5 years before then!). It sucks, but if it means bringing home a baby at the end, we can take it. ;)

Let's believe in Bumble! I hope your second trimester will bring wonderful morning-sickness relief so that you'll be able to cook, clean, nest and rest :-)

skm

I can't wait until you're up to nesting! There are so many cute things to buy! Hope you're feeling better today.

The only thing that keeps me functioning during pregnancy: Zofran. Now it is in the generic form. I HIGHLY suggest getting a prescription! ;)

soralis

So sorry to hear about the sickness. Hope you are able to eat more soon. Take care

Dear Nikole, I'm sorry to hear that you are feeling so weak and unwell, and I hope that you manage to run your business without running yourself ragged. I'm sending all my good hopes your way for you and your baby.

Katie

I am glad that you are feeling so hopeful, but I won't say that I am glad that you are not feeling well! I have been there, I know how awful you are feeling and how your whole existence seems to revolve around keeping that little bit of cinnamon roll down. Just try and enjoy this time that you have, before all the business of getting ready for baby really ramps up. Pamper yourself, pamper Bumble. I will be thinking of you both every day.

Jess

Stay positive, you have a lot of us (friends and strangers) rooting for you...

catherine

so sorry you are feeling crummy

one thing that helped me. was to eat a little bit of whatever sounded good the second i felt the teensiest bit of nausea- this involved keeping food with me at all times-- including the middle of the night and first thing in the morning. I was eating I would say at least once an hour, sometimes more-- this seemed to keep extreme nausea at bay- but I know everyone is different.

megan

i believe in Bumble.
i'm so happy for you. hope you start feeling better soon.

Good for you Nikole! You sound great, despite the aches and sick feelings. Wishing you all the best. xoxox

Kelly

you should have hope. hope exists for a reason. keep believing.

and take more b6. I swear. I took 50mg 3 times a day and I swear by it!! Up to 200mg a day is safe according to most sources. and don't worry terribly about cinnamon rolls. =) there's iron in the bread! eat whatever works for now. You can eat healthier later when you feel better. And I obsessed about furniture arrangement and other forms of nesting with both pregnancies...did powerpoint room layouts and all kinds of geeky things so I can relate to your to-do lists etc.

Hang in there!! goooooooo bumble!!

rockmama

I hated The Sick. I was lucky and just felt vaguely ill rather than actually BEING ill. I know I shouldn't, because you feel so bad, but I secretly envy your all-cinnamon-roll diet! :)

Waving little pom poms for Bumble!

Mary Ellen

I am so sorry that you are feeling sick, but I am so happy to see that you are feeling hopeful.

Joan

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for you starting this blog. Your story has touched my soul. My heart and prayers go out to you and your little one. I wanted to say that you've inspired me to keep my own hopes up. I myself am pregnant with our first child (7wks & 6d's today!!!), 3rd pregnancy (two losses in 2007 both 5 wks). I have been blessed with this child growing inside of me finally after 8 plus years of trying and for some reason I just can't let myself get too overly excited about it, just yet. I tell myself once i hit 12 wks I can let my guard down some and begin to enjoy my pregnancy. I hope and pray that you will be able to begin to enjoy your pregnancy too and much sooner than I think that I will start. We do need to let go of our worries and enjoy being pregnant, again. I pray that both you and I will do this soon. We are pregnant and having a child.

I'm a lurker most times, but haven't read your blog in a few months. What a surprise today to get caught up in your wonderful, wonderful news!

Silly and strange as this sounds, take in every moment you positively can of this experience. Someday when you have Bumble in your arms (and I say when, not IF), you will actually wish you had spent more time "experiencing" the pregnancy. It does get better and easier to enjoy here in a just a few more weeks.

BTW...if nothing else works for the nausea, ask your doctor for a prescription to Zofran. I struggled with The Sick for 6 months and it was the only way I could keep my cookies down. Baby got all the nutrients he needed and I didn't over-gain weight. :-)

So pleased for you in this pregnancy.
Unisom and B6 are safe - it's essentially Diclectin in do-it-yourself, non-time-released form. For more on this drug, and dosages, see the Motherisk website (Toronto Sick Kids hospital). I took Diclectin all the way through two horrible nauseated pregnancies. It didn't make me feel good, but it helped. Motherisk also has a nausea hotline.
Wishing you all the best.

Nikole,

Great to read such a great post. So truthful about how you are feeling. Wanting to accomplish everything, but knowing you need to focus on family/friends. I just wanted to remind you that you should feel better soon, and then you can start attacking that massive to do list! And don't worry if you never even touch it, you are doing the most important part of listening to your body and allowing Bumble to grow. BTW, cute name for your little one ;)

I think of you every day, and hope that you feel better soon and Bumble continues to grow and that in May we can meet him/her.
