Morning - HA! - Sickness

Having morning sickness is like being stalked.

You know it is there, following you, waiting. You try to duck and dodge it, do different things, hoping that it will miss you.

Sometimes, you get lucky. You manage to evade the sickness.

Other days, it seems that you cannot escape. It grabs hold of you and won't let go.

Today is one of those cannot escape days. I feel so icky. I can't wait for the much-heard-about second trimester burst of energy. My house is a disaster, my laundry is piled sky-high, and my poor dogs have learned that no matter how pathetically they whine and whimper, the best they get today for exercise will be a romp around the yard. I long to cook dinner for my husband again, without gagging my way through half of it.

I look forward to not having to run from the kitchen or living room whenever he heats something up for himself. I want to be able to eat when I am hungry without regretting it a few minutes later.

I am glad to be pregnant, but oh, I wish that I didn't have to feel like this.

Hi Katie,

Not sure if your u/s is tomorrow, but I wanted to let you know I was thinking of you! Hoping for more fabulous news!

Take care, and hope the nausea resolves soon!

I long for the day that I can post something similar to this on my page...

Hope you feel better soon.

Awww...I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I hope it passes SOON. Have you tried ginger tea? I've heard it works wonders. Also, sprite and OJ in the morning.

You take care of yourself.

And I just saw my name on the side of your blog! Thanks for the props!

Let's face it, puking is never fun no matter how much you are enjoying being pregnant. Hopefully it will all pass very, very soon.

I'm sorry hon, I hope the morning sickness will give you a little break soon. As other people said, puking is not fun, pregnant or not pregnant!

Katie, if it makes you feel better, my house is a complete disaster area, I have tons of laundry to do, and I can't even claim pregnancy as an excuse! I'm sorry you're feeling yucky, but I'm glad you've got morning sickness. May your 2nd trimester burst of energy be a blessing!
