You guys both sound horrible! Yalinda--please tell your rheumy about the coughing up the bright red blood. That's so not cool, and it makes me queasy just hearing it (actually, it's the tb meds that are making me queasy). But seriously, I'm worried about you. Take care of yourself.
Erin--out of sight, out of mind, yes? I was so excited because I lost 5 pounds this week--nauseous from all the pills I seem to pop these days. Alas, I think I gained it back over the weekend. Thought I was over the nausea, but it hit full force today. Me and my stomach have to come to an understanding about this stuff. But, actually, if I could lose a few pounds before summer, I'd be thrilled. I'm not horribly overweight, just about 15-20 pounds, but it would make me feel so much better about myself to be back to my pre-pregancy weight. Even if, no bikinis for me after carrying twins to 39 weeks!
In a positive mood, even though I feel like C*&*&(). Feel like I have a stomach virus, temps have been up all day (yesterday too). I almost left work early today, but I carpool into the city and it's not easy to make your way home on your own. If I still feel like heck tomorrow, I may call in.
Erin--get some sleep. Did you say the ambien helps you? If so, take it! For me, anyway, everything is so much easier to take if I have some sleep.
