Dear Oprah

thanks for making me a crier.  

To be honest, I used to be much more of an E.llen show-dancing-in-the-aisles-laughing at-people-wearing-sumo-wrestler-suits-bobbing-for-apples-kind of gal.  

But.

Ever since I got pregnant, I have found myself waiting for 4:30 to arrive each day so I can get my daily session of boo-hooing out of the way.  And yes, I know O.prah comes on at 4:00, but who has time to watch it in real time?  TiVo, baby. 

I have always TiVo'd O.prah, but I rarely watched any shows, usually just deleting them from the recorder to make room for more G.rey's Anatomy or reruns of Friends.  But now, I am a captive audience.  Inexplicable. Really. I'm not a huge fan of the shows with Dr. Oz, but the ones that talk about triumph over adversity (so...all of them), forget it and pass the K.leenex.  

And since I just *know* you are wondering how the puking is going (the more polite of you would ask how I'm feeling), I had one AMAZING puke-free day this week!  High fives all around!  I didn't tell anyone about it or talk about it for fear of jinxing it.  Then the next day, feeling cocky, I told two of my girlfriends while we were chasing the kids at the park.  "I didn't throw up ALL DAY yesterday!  I felt normal!" I exclaimed.  They cheered and told me how happy they were for me.  Then two hours later I spent every ten minutes getting a toilet facial.  Sigh.  Oh well, the Twinks are thriving, so all for a good cause.  

Three more weeks until the Promised Land.

Yay for toilet facials!!! Not - I am glad you had at least one good day and I hope that there are many more to come.

FYI - my doc told me that I could take up to 24mg of zofran per day - not sure what you are taking...

Did you watch the one yesterday with Nie Nie (StephaNIE NIElson, the plane crash/burn victim/warrior mom/blogger)? Oh, Lord, I bawled!!!

Hooray for puke free. Yesterday, sadly, was my worst ever (but considering my worst day ever means I puked twice, things aren't nearly as bad for me). I miss Oprah - says the girl with no TV because it broke while she was still trying to pay for IVF.

You are so close to being puke free. The episodes are getting fewer and more far between! I know the days of toilet facials are numbered. :)

As for Oprah, I tend to freak out about whatever thing is on, so I stick to the Food Network during the day. I am kind of a sissy pants.
