(written on Dec 10th)

I found out I was pregnant with baby #2 one week ago exactly. 3 days ago I woke up with tremendous pain. I had body ackes all over, heavy cramping, throwing up, and the other lovely thing you do when your stomach hurts.
I couldn't even stand up straight  
Ohhh, it was terrible!
In the morning I had diagnosed it as morning sickness. 
I had never experienced morning sickness with Emma so I had no idea what it felt like. 

 I was invited to a friends house to make Christmas ornaments that day and didnt want to cancel, so I took a shower and tried to put myself together.  I thought I would feel better getting out of the house.
It was difficult!
 I was there for a couple hours, white as a ghost, still not able to stand up straight.
Looking back now I should not have went. 
Later in the night, and still all of my symptoms are there, except for the throwing up.
I was starting to get really concerned for my new tiny baby.

First, I thought I had the stomach flu. 
I was sure of it! 
Then I thought about it some more and I am now sure that I had food poising. 
The night before I had eaten some carrots and cucumber with Caesar dressing. 
That had to be it! 
Caesar Dressing! 

Side story.
Moving to West Virginia, I had to be switched to a different insurance.  In order for me to make a appointment with a OBGYN, I first have to make a appointment with a Primary Care Provider, then they have to refer me to a "specialist". 
The list of PCP is short. 
I called a bunch hoping to get a appointment as soon as possible so I can get in to a OB and make sure my baby is OK. 
Well, here I am, 6 weeks pregnant, that just had a day of being violently sick and the closest Dr. appointment I can get is January 12! 
Are you serious. 
I have been calling everyday to see if there are any new openings because they don't have a "waiting" list. 
So, once I have the appointment, I have to wait even longer to go see a OB that they recommend!?! 
I am making a appointment for the day after at the Dr. I want to see, and they hopefully will "recommend" that one. 
7 weeks from now I will be seeing a Doctor for my first baby appointment. 
I don't like that! 
With Emma, I had my first one when I was 7 weeks. I heard her heartbeat and saw her little body. This baby will be 12 weeks or more... intill I get to know he/she is OK. 
That does not make me feel good. 

Continue from top
I called my insurance company's nurses hotline to get a opinion if I should be going to the emergency room.
They asked me all of my symptoms and asked me a ton of questions. 
They were absolutely no help. All I wanted to know was if my baby was OK if I had the stomach flu or food poising. Of course they don't know the answer to that.  

I am still not feeling 100%. 
Every time I eat something it is not a fun time. 
I try to drink as much water as I can to keep hydrated. That's no fun either. 

This pregnancy has definitely got off to a stressful start for me. 
I just hope everything is OK.
I wont know in till 7 weeks from now.  :(
