met a lovely mom last night who gave me great pregnancy advice. she took one look at me and said, "i know everything you're going through. upper tummy pain, right? rub it out." lol. we talked for an hour or so after my shift ended at work and she offered some helpful hints to combat the nausea, plus a great supportive shoulder to lean on after a long and difficult day.
tomorrow is the doctor's appointment. finger's crossed that everything is on track and normal and as it should be!
