I feel like a yo-yo

I’m having a hard time dealing with the change in hormones … I’ve never been the type of person that I am right now – overly sensitive and emotional is not my cup of tea.  Not that I’m the void of emotion by any means, but this is overwhelming and I’m at a very low […]

Hi there Peanut

Today started off scary but turned out to be incredible. For a followup (from the ER) my boyfriend and I went to the obgyn so they could check the fetal heartbeat.  We were very nervous after the previous medical scare and after the doctor tried two different instruments but could not detect a heartbeat externally […]

Ugh, can I just be healthy?

Had to miss work today because last night I ended up almost blacking out after hours of vomiting bile and having the worst upper abdominal pain imaginable.  After a couple hours I broke into a cold sweat while feeling feverish so my boyfriend made me go to the Emergency Room. At the ER I was […]

I’m Pregnant? Hand me another test!
