Imagination vs reality

What I thought morning sickness would be like:  Nausea for maybe an hour in the morning, might throw up once or twice over a three month period, and feel like my normal self the rest of the time.  Totally worth it to grow the sweet little bundle of joy in my belly.

What morning sickness is actually like: Nausea from the moment I wake up till the moment I go to sleep, with maybe a break around lunch time, where I happily think, oh yay, a break, only to be followed by another wave of nausea.  Throwing up multiple times a day, multiple times a week, and feeling gross and nauseous in between.  Totally worth it to grow the baby in my belly, but I'm starting to think that baby hates me.

I picked up a prescription for Zofran last Friday to try to take the edge off.  It's definitely helping, but that stuff is EXPENSIVE, and Husband sweetly reminds me I'm supposed to be rationing it out to get me through.  Grrr, baby's college fund might just get a late start.
