.....Still Feeling Pukey

Pukey.....I'm not sure if that's even a word, I know what puke means and pukey rhymes with dookie so that's exactly how I feel, like pukey and dookie.

I understand that morning sickness is a blessing, I really do and they say its a sign of a healthy pregnancy.....( I think a man came up with that).....but please give me a break. It's lasting all day long now, I carry crackers with me, wherever I go. I think my T.V. screen makes me sick, my husband's socks make me want to vomit and one look at my son's smelly face and I could lose it. I know I sound horrible but I forgot that you could smell everything when you are pregnant....and I mean everything.

On top of all that, I used to love to eat and now nothing sounds good. My whole world is turning upside down. What will I do if I can't eat? Eating is my life....and now right before the Greatest Eating Holiday of the Year. I will find a way, I will make myself sick on turkey, mashed potatoes, GB casserole and pie and I found this great recipe for caramel punkin pie (that's right, I said punkin, thats how I say it, that's how I spell it.) When I get a chance, I will share the recipe, I promise.

Oh yeah.....I have recently acquired some kind of cold, it started somewhere in my face and moved down to my throat.....I wake up with a sore throat and I know that bugger is working to get down into my chest so I feel even more miserable for Thanksgiving.....and I'm pretty sure there is not much medicine I can take right now so I've been drowning myself in Orange Juice and if you knew what Orange Juice does to my insides, then you would know why I feel pukey.....oh the smell. It's a mean and viscious cycle.

Feeling Yucky.....

Well I thought I was going to be one of the lucky ones, I thought I was going to be that lucky girl that didn't have a single wave of nausea.....I was wrong. It hit me yesterday and it seems to hit me right after I drink water, hmmm, maybe I should just keep drinking cokes, I don't feel sick when I drink cokes, but then, that wouldn't be good for the baby......but it taste so good.

The good news is that I haven't physically puked yet, I know its coming. I know its inevitable, I was at the elementary school last night for my son's Read-In and its like I could smell everything, all the people and all their little children.....I know it sounds bad, but kids smell and that smell, makes me sick.

When we got home I was talking to my husband, Brad. "Honey, I don't feel so well, I might have to throw up." He replies with, " I bet you will feel better if you do, just go throw up." What a man?!? Who says that!?! Does he not know, that once you throw up, you can't stop, and its not like it feels good, like you relieved something, your freaking throwing up. How could that make me feel better?

Well lucky for me, I fought the temptation and decided to sleep. There is nothing better than sleeping while you are pregnant. It doesn't seem to matter where you are or what you are doing, lay your head down and your going to doze off to sleep. Anyone that knows me, knows that I love to sleep, sleeping and eating, my 2 favorite things. Sleeping and dreaming about eating.....even better!!!

Well, I've ate breakfast, I finished my coke, so I guess the only thing left to do is take a nap before I get nauseous. I love the pregnant life!!!

Deciding to Blog

My reason for starting a blog is because our life is about to head down a road I never thought I would be heading down again.....I'm pregnant. I was sure that I was done having children but to my surprise, my husband said he wanted to have a child. So here I am, pregnant and absolutely loving life but I'm having trouble remembering anything and everything so I wanted to have a journal of my pregnancy. I want the child that is growing inside of me to be able to look at this years down the road and know what his/her Mommy was thinking about the whole time I was pregnant.

This baby is a gift from God, and I want to share this experience with the world. I am so blessed.
