An Open Letter to my Placenta

Dear Placenta:

Would you please start doing what you're supposed to do and take over all this hormone craziness running rampant in my body? Seriously. If throwing up twice on Tuesday night wasn't bad enough, I had to go and do it again this morning...with nothing in my tummy but pink (?) stomach acid. Really, that makes my throat hurt.

I'm ready to get on with the fun stuff and not have this nagging feeling that yep, I'm going to toss my cookies.

So, please get with the program.

I'll wear my cute Eddie Bauer wrap dress if you do!! (Ok, I'm probably going to wear it anyway, but maybe a bribe is in order)

Oh dear...I know you must not be feeling too great to post something here. ASH hopes you feel better soon!

Deluring to say congrats!

I hope that the m/s subsides soon for you. It's miserably and I don't wish it upon anyone.

As for the pink "tinges". It could very well be that your stomach and/or esophagus is irritated from the vomiting and that it's a tiny bit of blood. NOTHING to freak out over, although I know that's easier said than done.

If you can, try to keep something in your stomach at all times. Whether it be crackers, toast, potato chips, whatever. It will help to keep the pink-ness away!


And don't hesitate to tell me to stick my advice where the sun don't shine! ;)

Mandy, after I thought about it, I'm pretty sure the pink was from the Colace I took this morning!

Teehee. Awesome. Lemme know if that works for you. :-) Never did for me. (OF course, I didn't own the Eddie Bauer dress)

And also? CONGRATS. :-)
