Ad nauseam is a Latin term used to describe something unpleasurable which has continued "to [the point of] nausea". For example, the sentence, "I have been so nauseous during this pregnancy...it has been to the point of ad nauseam." At least I think I used it correctly. LOL!
Lets see...we found out I was pregnant about 10 weeks ago or so and I think I have been sick for...lets see...yea...about 10 weeks!! Ugg...it has been pretty awful and I have felt like the being burden to Eric but he has been wonderful and has tried his best not to complain too much.
I have felt a little bit better the past few days and I am nearing the elusive 12 week mark that should end all the 1st trimester sickness, but I don't want to hold my breath. I was not even close to being this sick with Gabe...so I don't know what to expect. I have had to go in to the Hospital twice for dehydration and malnutrition because it was so bad...however yesterday and today I have managed to eat pretty well AND keep it all down. Hoping all continues this way...
I have a follow up tomorrow with Dr. Banks. He wants to make sure that I am getting enough to eat and staying hydrated. Next week is the big 12 week appointment where we should get another ultrasound (at least we did with Gabe) and I will have a bunch of blood taken for all the genetic tests.
