URP...

Is a great word to describe how I feel.

No, I am not doing Karate or wearing sweat bands to go play tennis. I'm trying to fight off this all consuming NAUSEA (which makes me grumpy I might add). My BFF through embryo adoption Jen said the only way her morning sickness was cured was through wearing these crazy SEA BANDS. I'M WILLING TO TRY ANYTHING!!! I called Wal-Mart-they don't sell em'. Called the local drug store.....THEY HAD ONE PAIR!!! The 6 littles and I drove into town and picked em' up and so far I DO BELIEVE they are helping.
I am VERY THANKFUL for my 24-7 sickness-it means the baby is doing good!

The kids CRACK ME UP! Aw-Bell tried to feed the baby SMARTIES on Sunday and she loves to rub my belly. They all argue about who is going to hold this baby and so far the names they have picked out are ZEKES, Caleb and Star!

I might also add that since I have posted on my blog about our embryo adoption, I have had 2 friends that are very interested and one is calling my doctor tomorrow. She said she hadn't read my blog in 2 months and she & her husband had talked much about embryo adoption recently and she just happened upon my blog and was THRILLED to get info-we just got off the phone! She was only told about one way of embryo adoption that costs about $20,000-OUTRAGEOUSLY PRICED if you ask me. Our total was under $4,000.

Thank you Lord for helping us be a voice to those desiring to grow their families. Thank you for letting us share our miracle with others.

I've never heard of sea bands but I am totally going to look in to them. I have HORRIBLE morning sickness- like I loose 20 lbs cause I can keep NOTHING down...
It hasn't hit yet with this pregnancy. I'm almost 5 weeks and it is week 6 when it hits. This means- fingers crossed- that I will get to eat Thanksgiving Dinner.
Hopefully with your Sea Bands you will too!!

Again, I'm so happy for you! Not for the nausea part but I know you're taking it all in stride and counting your blessings!

I pray the bands keep working! ;o) How very cool that God is using this experience to speak to others. YAY God! I actually spoke to my husband about it. He's not convinced...lol But intrigued.

I can't suggest this from personal experience, but this lady's idea seems to be worth a try.

A friend that has very bad morning sickness said that her doctor told her that it was caused by too much old bile, or something to that effect. That's what Kim at In A Shoe says too, so who knows.

Nausea is such a bitter sweet thing.

I know the sickness is just awful, my friend...BUT I am sooooo thankful you have it :):):)

Love you.

I'm just curious (and again, I really hope you don't mind me asking you questions), were your embryos in LA? Or did you just find an amazing RE in LA that you wanted to use? I currently don't have an official RE (though I did have a phone consultation with one locally), so I'm wondering if there are better doctors in LA!
