Minuses and Pluses

Minus: Well, it doesn't seem that we've made much progress on correcting Owen's vomiting. The medication at least keeps him happy while he's spewing all over us and our floor. It seems that each time we try something new, it works for 2-3 days and then he returns to his old ways. I think the intensity of the vomiting has decreased, but it's hard to tell. I started taking a Vitamin B supplement at the suggestion of my friend, Phyllis. That actually produced the most promising results. THANK YOU PHYLLIS!

Plus:
With all the foods I have cut out of my diet (citrus, dairy, chocolate), I'm back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. Scott thinks he'll probably shed a few pounds since we're not keeping ice cream in the fridge.

Minus:
I am hungry and still craving cheese! I also think this restricted diet is making it harder to shake a cold I've contracted. I'm trying to find good substitutes and remembering my vitamins, but still... I've also had two people suggest I try cutting out eggs. I'm not sure if it's worth it, as SO MANY products contain eggs, but what if it would work??

Plus: OWEN SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT LAST NIGHT! This is legitimate. He went down around 7:30 and slept clear through until 7:00 AM. We are so thankful that he sleeps well, as it makes the other problems SO MUCH easier to work through.

I'm sorry you're having such a hard time figuring out how to fix the problem. That's a bummer! Keep up the good work. Owen is thankful for it, whether he can say it or not.
