Excuse Me...

Have I mentioned that last week saltines became my new best friends?


Nothing like day-long low-level nausea (and burping) to erase those "am I really still pregnant" worries.

And can I tell you after a week off work, waking up this morning at the god-forsaken hour of 6AM was pure evil? I miss my couch.


  1. I could ship some crumpets your way. They work wonders! Boo and hiss for a 6am start.

  2. Hahahahahaha, it's SO one of those be-careful-what-you-wish-for scenarios, isn't it? You wish for proof that you're really and truly pregnant, and then that nausea comes in and you think, "I ASKED for this?!"

    It doesn't last forever. Oh, and a tip from me to you: Go with unsalted saltines. The sodium on those suckers will sneak up on you and before you know it your rings don't fit anymore ;)

  3. Erika - thanks for the tip. Since they have become my primary food group (washed down with Ocean Spray Cranberry Pomegranate juice), that's an important thing to keep in mind.

  4. I lived off Mini Wheats for 2 months when I was first pregnant. I didn't really have morning sickness (just a few waves of nausea here and there), but I was so frickin' dizzy and lightheaded it drove me crazy. It helped to keep a few pieces of cereal in me at all times.

    Hopefully you don't get morning sickness any worse than this! Sending you happy and non-nauseous thoughts.
