  I think at this point it is fair to say that the diclectin is making my HG manageable. Mornings are still hard and it's no earlier than 10am when I get my shower, but the rest of the day is a little easier. I'm still gagging a lot during the day, but in the 10 days that HG has been here, I've only throw-up 5 times.

The hardest thing is dealing with food. I am having a hard time in the kitchen. My poor kids, sometimes I feel like I'm just throwing whatever food I can their way and by no means is it a complete meal. My 3 year old comes from the pantry with a box of cereal asking me if he can eat it - poor baby! Of course I say yes and he is soooo happy.  I am thankful for my wonderful husband who is stepping up in this area and feeding us.

My mom has the kids this morning, so I was able to pick up the messy house and run the vacuum. Now, I am ready for a nap. I can't believe how tired I am! I go to bed right after the kids (about 7:30) and get up when they do at 7 and I'm still tired. Can't wait for the 1st trimester to be over and I get some energy back

So, it sounds like the diclectin is bringing you up to the level where I was with my pregnancies. I suppose we can at least say - well, that's improvement - but honestly, as bad as I felt with my pregnancies I cannot imagine how much worse it was for you when you were not on the diclectin.
Hopefully as the HG levels off, the diclectin will still do it's work, and you'll actually start to feel better? We can hope, right?

It is my hope once the placenta starts hormone production that the dicelctin will take ALL sick feelings away! Wouldn't that be wonderful?!!!
