15 weeks and Sickness Be Gone ( Finally)

The Light at The End of the Tunnel

Ok Girls, there is good news!  15 weeks and my sickness has finally abated.  Break open the cranberry juice and fly some balloons.  I am celebrating today.  A 7 day vomitless stint.  My head hasn't swiveled around once, the priest is no longer trying to exorcise the demon, the toilet is no longer my best friend, my dog no longer feels sorry for me.  All is well. I am a happy hippo.  Or as Ron says ' You are My hippo'  Aww.. 

Last week I had so little energy, that I took my dog for a short walk and seriously thought I wasn't going to make it back home.  I  did half the walk that I normally do with Raffi ( poor pooch)  and had to mentally coach myself to get home.  I was thinking.  Come on, it's only 250 more metres, you can do it.  Ok 100.  Take it slow. Breathe.  It was unbelievable and really scary. My dog realised something was wrong and when I stopped, sat by my feet, looked up at me and licked my leg. 

But a couple of days ago, I felt so good, I met loads of other dog walkers and Raffi made some doggy friends. I feel like my life is returning to normal.  Yes I am still  mildly nauseous.  But I don't mind mildly  nauseous too much.  I just don't like that continual acidy lethargic sensation.  Thank God I think that is over.  

To any of you who are still going through this - trust me, I feel for you.  I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

I still eat weirdly ( I had a banana, an apple and a Mango for dinner with no ability to eat anything else) but i don't mind that.  Energy is wonderful.  I am glad it is my friend again.  And so I wish it for all of you too and I am here to tell you that it will come back and I am sending it to you.  xx
