Lesson for today...

Don't send a pregnant woman to do your grocery shopping.

The smell of the deli counter was overwhelming and nauseating, so I barrelled through the store throwing random stuff into the cart. Now we have lots of groceries, but nothing that goes together as a meal. AND when I hit the ice cream aisle I was suddenly hungry again, so I bought some super-decadent ice cream bars that I'd never buy in a million years under normal circumstances.

Oh, and every time I cough (and I do that frequently, still getting rid of a cold) I end up gagging. Lovely.

Know what's sick? I know that I can call the clinic and ask for some kind of meds, but I'm so reassured by this nausea that if it went away, I'd be a nervous wreck. How sick is that?

Oh my goodness did that post bring back memories! I can remember that the grocery store was one of the most disgusting yet wonderful places on earth early in my pregnancy. I know it sucks to be nauseous but I am so freaking happy for you! I can't wait for your ultrasound!!

Oh, I completely get this! Too funny really, just know that if it gets bad, you have a back up plan.

In the meantime, lots of small bland meals and snacks and sips of water to keep it at a level you can handle. Have to keep you swinging that hammer! :)

Grocery Ga.teway. That way you can shop from home, without the gross smess and stuff and even have the stuff delivered to your kitchen.

Not sick at all--the vomiting was my barometer that everything was okay.

Ben and Jerry were my best friends when I was pregnant. I didn't have cravings I just allowed myself more freedom to have some goodies. I wish I did allow myself more time to nap. I'm glad to hear that things are going well for you.
