where in the world is my modern day vomitorium

the end of the week gave me such confidence. i spent the entirety of thursday trying not to vomit on my co-workers. i walked around the office with a plastic bag in my pocket (just in case) and spent every waking minute stuffing my face with vitamin c drops to keep the nausea from mounting. friday was better, only half as bad as the day before. saturday only a blip of sick waving past me from time to time. then sunday, no nausea at all. not once. instead my weak stomach was replaced with a terrible blue. i cried almost every hour. wow, i’m super fun to hang out with.

today i spent nearly all day waiting in my hematologists office for him to see me. it seems over the last week i’ve developed this sweet bump in my spine just below my neck and another doc said it might be a hematoma under my spine, perhaps being caused by a bleed into my spine. nice! luckily hema doc says no way, looks like it might be all, hmm, what d’ya call it… oh yeah, stress related. ha! who would’ve thunk it.

luckily i had already booked an acupuncture session for today. after hysterically blubbering again and many needle sticks i can say i rounded out the day happily exhausted at the grocery store chugging sparkling water. ok.

i guess all this rambling post is meant to tell you all is that i’ve hit a bit of a rough patch. i’m spending my days worrying. worrying nonstop, worrying about losing these babies, having these babies, carrying these babies and dying by either a blood clot or cancer (yeah this one is really a fun one), and oh yeah, dying on our flight to spain next week.

so yeah. things are super awesome here. i’m getting really sick of myself. so hopefully today i’ve started putting this nutso underworld in my head to rest. at least for the evening. i loaded up on lots of veggies and yumminess at the store and i’m on my way to a warm bath and then bed.

thank you so much for all your support over the last week. i really appreciate this community so much. it’s truly the only place to come where i know i won’t feel alone.  i hope you can bear with me through these downer posts. i’m trying to get back into the niceties of this journey for which i am so grateful. it might not seem like it i know. but it’s there. i just got to remember how to hold it closer to the light.

    I really hope that things get better for you soon! That’s awful about the possible hematoma! I hope that something can be done asap whatever it is!

    I’m also sorry you’re so sick! I remember that feeling and it’s awful. I’m not sure where you live, but if you need relief, I took 1/2 a tablet of unisom and 75mg of B6 and it seemed to help me a lot.

    No wonder you are down, your poor bodies is getting hit from every direction! It is so great that you have the babies, but they do take a lot out of you. And what is with getting a hematoma? That should not be allowed while you are in such a fragile state . Sorry you are in need of a vomitorium – hopefully the worst is over. Have you tried real ginger ale? Hard to find (look in the natural foods section of grocery) but it was the only thing that helped me. Good luck!

    a warm bath can do a world of good, hope it helped. and the spain trip will be such a wonderful distraction from it all! can you put all your nervous energy into obsessing over a spain travel guide??

    you sound completely normal to me. don’t worry, after this early phase time starts to move much faster.

    Hmm, stress? really? can’t imagine WHY– oh T, hang in there- your body is besieged with hormones, no wonder you are feeling all over the place. and the barfy feeling is not good even when it means something very very good.

    Feeling crappy–even for a good cause–is depressing, especially when you’re dealing with past trauma on top of it. We all have to take it one day at a time.

    Hopefully some beaches, new sights, and some good tapas will help clear the clouds a bit.
