To Hades and back!

So if being sick from pregnancy wasn't bad enough my tooth decided to join in the fun and compete with my nausea. And hands down, my tooth won!
I was in need of a serious root canal and my appointment was scheduled for the 12th but my tooth decided to start causing me inexplicable pain starting Monday night. It might have been some of the worst pain I have ever experienced and I was taking a narcotic for it and it did nothing! I was finally able to get into the Dr. and get it taken care of and I feel 110% better!
Now I am back to good ole morning sickness (or as I like to call it all day sickness). I know many of you can empathize with me. (And those you can't, please don't tell me about it) It's all I can do to not think about it every second of the day. The only time I don't feel super sick is when I am eating, and even then the thought of the food I am actually putting in my mouth could give me(as I call them) "the gags". OK, enough complaining I just needed to vent a little. We are so excited for this baby and I would do this for all 9 months if I had to!
p.s. due date unknown at this time we will know in a few weeks. Think Marchish!

I'm sorry sorry! That is the worst (pregnancy nausea...but I can imagine the tooth thing sucks on top of it)! Are you taking anything? I am not sure how you feel about taking medication while pregnant. I was freaked out about it, but got to the point where it was drugs or IV fluids. So I took both Zofran and something called Pyridox, which I think is just a vitamin B6 and antihistamine (my Dr. prescribed it), and honestly it helped more than the Zofran.

Good luck. I can't wait to see you guys!

Awww Trace. I'm feeling you. I was that way this last 1st trimester & it's the worse. You don't even want to eat, but it makes you feel better & it's making you feel sick while you're eating it. The things we go through for these kids. I used those sea sickness wristbands & really they did help a little. And the root canal thing... I can't relate really there, but I hear it is the worst pain EVER! I'm sorry!

Wahoo congrats on being pregnant. That is always exciting, but I'm sorry you feel so awful. The tooth ache sounds miserable as well, hopefully things are getting better in both those areas. I have been so out of the blogging world so it was fun to catch up a bit on what's going on with ya'll. Emma is so grown up and sooo cute. When are ya'll moving to Utah? I wish we were still there but I'm sure we'll be up to visit so we'll keep in touch.
