Why I Feel Like Junk

I miss you all!! I am still feeling like crap.

Here is why I am:
Hooked up to an IV
Have medicine streaming through a tube into my stomach 24/7
Practically living in my bathroom, living over Mr. Toilet
Losing about 1/2 pound a day
Fantasizing about food that I can't eat or keep down...

I am pregnant!

We are really excited about having a new baby, but pregnancy does not love me. Hopefully I've only got another month of this because my body is going to give out on me soon. Thank heavens for modern medicine. If I couldn't have all this stuff at home, I'd be in the hospital right now. But with it, I get to veg and be miserable at home. I have good days and bad days, and good parts of any days and I am in an okay day for the first time in a long time.

 The good news (or pathetic news, depending on how you want to look at it) I have been taking this time as an opportunity to catch up on my reality television--Dance Moms, Project Runway, Top Chef-Just Desserts, X-Factor, Say Yes to The Dress, What Not to Wear, VH1s Top Songs of the '00, and anything else Bravo, Lifetime, or TLC wants to throw my way. I'm not picky. My brain may be slowly eating itself with all of this tv, but it is what it is.

But I actually wrote a blog post here. It is my first blog post since I started blogging over there, and it actually has something to do with books and literature (it's called Lit Can Change Lives) instead of my current, embarrassing television habits.  Please check it out and leave a comment. :)

Oh! And more good news. Jolene Perry's book, The Next Door Boys, is out! I read this book for the first time about ten months ago. It was the first book I ever read by her and I loved it. So happy it was published. :) If you liked Meg's Melody, I really think you'll like The Next Door Boys. I should interview Jolene. Or maybe just post some of my favorite quotes from our emails....


  1. Congratulations on your growing family! Remember, this too shall pass. May you feel better soon.

  2. Oh Kaylee...dont feel like junk! But if you get a baby out of it...I guess its worth it. Feel better soon. I send out my happy non-junk vibes to you.

  3. Congrats on the baby! Sorry preganancy doesn't like you. I read your blog post on FTLOC but Blogger won't let me comment. Oh well.

    I am half way through, The Next Door Boys and I love it. Meg's Melody is in my mailbox waiting to be picked up. So, it should be a good weekend.

    Hope you fell better soon!

  4. I feel you. It's not quite hooked up to an IV for me when I'm pregnant, but I did lose more than 10 lbs with my last pregnancy. And I'm thinking about doing it again. We must be crazy. Good luck. Hope it goes by quickly.

  5. I love What Not to Wear!! But I'm sorry you're so very sick ... hang in there!

  6. At first I panicked when you said you'd share quotes from emails, and then I realized that our email are probably only decipherable by you and I, and now I'm a lot less worried ;-D


  7. Sorry you're feeling so awful. I weighed less than I did in high school at the end of my first trimester with baby #1, so I feel your pain! You do forget it though. Honestly.

    And catching up with trashy TV can be so theraputic....

  8. Congratulations!!! I know how it is with that pesky morning sickness. I have it the whole 9 months. Not as bad as you though. :( Feel better soon and I'm SO happy for you! :)

  9. Congratulations Kaylee, and I'm sorry you're stuck to the toilet. I hope you get feeling better. In the meantime, enjoy those shows on TV :)

  10. Congratulations! YAHOO! I will get by by reading your deleted scenes over and over and waiting very patiently :D

  12. Congratulations on your pregnancy! I hope all goes well.
    Hey, I gave you a little blog award but somehow I think I did it wrong because it doesn't seem to have linked right. I'll have to go and figure out what I did wrong and fix it...;op The link from my blog to this one works fine. Arrrrghh.

  13. I feel for you Kaylee! Hang in there. Is it giving you more time to write?

  14. I so feel for you! I really hope for your sake that you are one of those people who AREN'T sick for the whole nine months. I always got morning sickness that I thought would kill me before it left, but it was nothing like that. I wish you all the best! And at least you'll get a little one out of it. Kinda takes away the sting. :)
