So much for Friday's update

Did you know that, if you vomit violently enough, you can get really bad whiplash that will require you to spend the entire weekend lying down, with ice packs, and not moving your neck, lest the pain become so unbearable that you just want to cry?

Well, it's true.

Oh, sweetie, that is ust awful. I'm so sorry.

I tried one of the raspberyy Viactivs (Booby got them as a sample at a bike race), and you're right, they are disgusting (but smell delicious!).

Hope you're feeling better soon. You've suffered enough, dammit!

Damn. I've had broken blood vessels in my eyes, but yours takes the cake (sorry, saying that doesn't make you sick, does it?). I wish it were better - hope it gets better - it WILL BE BETTER!

Aw girl. That's AWFUL! Tell those babies to start treating their Momma better... Otherwise they'll be grounded before they're even born.

I threw up so hard during one preggo episode that I busted all the blood vessels in my eyes. Then I looked SCAREY.

Oh Arabella, I'm so sorry. I'm glad you're having a few good days mixed in with all this, but hopefully it's almost over and you'll be in the second trimester and feeling better soon.
Thinking of you.

Go ahead an cry. I would. Sheesh.

If you can manage to, try to see a massage therapist or chiropractor. You may be able to find one to come to you. I know the last thing you want is more appointments to deal with but whiplash is serious and pregnancy (especially twins) will stress your spine and neck. Once the babies arrive, you truly will not have time to pursue this. All you can do now is take preventive measures to ensure you're in the best condition you can be when they're born.

I was so worried about my back giving me problems during pregnancy because of my scoliosis--and much to my surprise it didn't give me any grief. After I brought the baby home though the constant holding, carrying, nursing, and hauling stuff killed me.
