|Toph's Earthbending looks a lot like how my nausea feels|
Well that's what I've been experiencing for the past 3 days.
Yesterday was the absolute WORST because while at work my insides instantly decided to go into REVERSE! I BARELY had enough time to run to the bathroom and I didn't have enough time to make it to a stall.
Let's just say I'm lucky they keep a garbage can out in the open...and that there was no one blocking it. And that no one saw that I totally MISSED the garbage and totally spewed exorcist style onto the wall...the shame!
And other than embarrassing, it was unprofessional, unattractive, and just plain unreasonable!
I feel like my body has turned traitor. It's doing outrageous things...like going into instant reverse without warning....getting ridiculously tired from mundane activities...and making certain foods just plain OFFENSIVE.
My husband chopped some green peppers for me to eat the other day and the only way I can describe their smell is...it smelled like those green peppers just wanted trouble! Like the sole purpose of their existence was to offend me. It sounds RIDICULOUS, but that's how I felt. Like they and all their little peppery green buddies were out to get me, like they were a rude guys who barged in my house, spit on my sofa, and tried to beat me up.
I just really felt offended by their presence, their smell, their entire existence!
So...no green peppers for me. Even thinking about them makes me kind of mad.
Isn't that weird! My body is like....freaking me out!
My boobs are getting bigger. I've gained 2 lbs the last month. I'm still pretty hour-glassy... but soon it'll happen, I didn't even realize it until this week....
I WON'T HAVE AN HOURGLASS FIGURE ANYMORE!
I'LL HAVE A BUMP IN THE MIDDLE! I'LL BE AN APPLE! A LITTLE ROUND APPLE!
THAT'S CUTE AND ALL... BUT I ADORE MY FIGURE. HOW WOMANLY IT IS. HOW SHAPELY AND VOLUPTUOUS!!!!!
I'd just come into my own: realizing that I'm not meant to be 120lbs and starving, but a goddess of sensuality! And now...I'll be a chocolaty cream-puff in 8 months. Probably 6!
And I guess that's ok right?
I'm heading towards another kind of "womanly-ness".
With lush breasts
A ripe stomach full of a love-made life
Glowing skin and long coiling dark curls (I'm hoping, although I've had 3 pimples this past week!)
I guess this is just what happens.
My Sicilian doesn't really understand: Just because Millions of women for Millions of years have been pregnant and given birth, doesn't mean that it's just old hat to me! It's new! And it's not just run of the mill to be nauseaus, and throwup at a moment's notice! No matter how many relatives calmly tell me it is! Does no one sympathize???!!!
I guess I DO want a pity party, I want everyone to put on sad little paper hats, and crowd around me, and cry about how much of a wonderful trooper I am. Wow! I never knew I was so bratty! At least I still have enough composure to see that.)
(munch munch munch...these ginger chew's really help!)
Oh! I wanted to tell all the other expecting moms...or loved ones of those expecting, or people expecting moms have barfed all over by mistake while trying to reach the toilet:
These ginger chews really help with nausea!
I've popped one when I felt the nausea coming on and they really help (totally not affiliated with them and not paid to say this).
Before we bought them, I admit I was a little afraid to eat...projectile vomiting across the room and hitting a wall will do that to a girl. But I've safely been able to nibble here and there (after my notoriously nauseated 11am-12.30pm time)!
Have any of you suffered from nausea...pregnancy related or otherwise? Have any tips?????
