nausea is awesome

9 May

so finally. finally. (because yes, right now 5w3d seems like a long time). i am starting to feel a bit pukey. most people would cringe at the thought. but not i. because it is a sign. a symptom. a side effect. tangible proof that something is going on. i haven’t been overly hungry. or exhausted. or much else that people tend to complain mention in early pregnancy.  a few afternoons i have felt like eating was the worst idea ever. but it has been intermittent and fleeting. the past few days though have seen a serious uptick in the nausea factor. and the noticing of absolutely revolting smells. last night i made myself lay as still as possible so as not to toss my cookies. (literally since i has stopped off at w.hole foods for the best chocolate chip cookie ever). and i didn’t. i was telling m that the whole hungry and nauseous at the same time thing is quite interesting. but i am appreciating it for now.  when m was pregnant with hook she never had any morning sickness. ever. well she did heave up a prenatal vitamin once but that is it. so this is all outside of her realm. and she keeps reminding me that feeling like nothing is going on is completely normal. but i don’t know what i don’t know. to me it is comforting. and disgusting at the same time.
