Preggo Takeover

I'm gonna do my best not to let my pregnancy take over this blog because naturally that's what pregnancy rants would do - but I'm gonna focus on keeping a good balance.  For documenting purposes, I definitely want to keep track of how my body responds to this particular pregnancy because I think it's going to be completely different than the first time around.  With that being said...

I am SOOOO nauseous!  In the morning I either make a dash towards the toilet or I'm lingering around the bathroom ready to make the move.  The remainder of the day is spent fighting off that urge.  I feel better when I eat, but as soon as I'm done the nausea is back.  This is, by far, one of the worst feelings in the world.  I think I'd rather have the flu for a few days than nausea for 3 months!  I was lucky with Evan and never experienced this torture.  I may have had a week or two where I felt queasy at times, but nothing compared to my current situation.  I was at a meeting this morning and I was so nauseous that I began sweating and my mouth was watering - I was two seconds away from bolting out of my chair to the bathroom.  Luckily, I overcame it, but my boss was looking at me as though I was diseased.  Might as well be, I guess.

And to not leave Evan out of today's happenings - he found some dried up dog poop on the bottom of a sneaker this afternoon and found out it didn't taste so good.  While I freaked out, Robert laughed.  It was a very small piece, but like I needed anything else to induce vomiting.  It was his breath that finally did it.

ugh it's the WORST. It really is. I hope yours goes away soon, mine lasted til around 14-17 weeks. Torture. It really wasn't fair that you didn't get it the first time around, ha. I am requesting a play by play. I really enjoyed reading Jennifer Kirby's prego journal with Claire.

Ha the word verification is swishypu, funny. I mean right on to those who don't take the drugs to make it go away but that wasn't me, I took them and went to a concert, who knows how long I would've been sick if I didn't take them.

I don't even take tylenol when I have a headache - so honestly I haven't even thought about medication for this. It's so intolerable at times that I might really have to consider a reliever of some sort.

Ok, you officially need pregnant lady warnings if you are going to post about that. I think I threw up in my mouth a little. oh Evan! :)

Amanda! I just came across this as I was looking on Kylie's blog. Congrats!!! I feel for you on the nausea part - I have been taking Zofran up until the 7th month and still even have to these days sometimes - worst morning/afternoon/evening sickness of all time. But it really does help A LOT - I don't know how I would had made it without. Get some meds girl.:)
