Hi Nic! OMG, I have eaten so much ginger I'm surprised I'm not made of the stuff. LOL Sometimes it helps take the edge off at least -- and thankfully I'm not actually vomiting, just nauseated. Frequently. It wast nearly all day every day for like 7 weeks straight, but then at around 14 weeks I started to get a break - only at nighttime - but this week it's coming back pretty fierce. Argh!

Ah well, it's all worth it, of course, and I know it could be SO MUCH worse (poor Kate Middleton!) and that helps a bit.

I'm super curious now about what you DID encounter! The whole process is just so darn fascinating to me, especially it can be both so similar and so different for every woman. So if you feel like it, you could Spark Mail me. :)

Thanks so much for checking on me, and for the suggestion! I need to try fresh ginger TEA again and see if that helps more than the candies, gums, etc. It's also saved me from many an IBS pain in the past!

emoticon Thanks for checking in with me! Hope you are ready for a great fall. Way to go with THM, too. My whole family easily lost weight and inches following this way of eating; but I have been off plan for months due to sickness. I've been able to maintain most of my weight loss though! Hoping to be back on plan after a couple more weeks of recovery.

Dragon Lady eh? My mom had a nurse manager they called that years ago... I was just a young kid then and just the look of the lady frightened me... She liked to wear big spider web earrings too.. Looking back at it now everything she wore was fierce. I bet she worked hard at being The Dragon Lady.

I have not watched Game of Thrones but I have heard that it is very good.. I was going to catch the beginning episodes on Netflix but alas Netflix does not want to offer it yet for some odd reason.

....just....speechless at the tragic loss of your friends' son. Such a devastatingly hard thing to come to terms with.
