I know that parents out there are probably laughing as they read this but…one thing I was not prepared for with this whole pregnancy thing was becoming a “morning person.” Nevertheless morning sickness has descended on me like a hot wet blanket.
For the past 3 mornings I have been up at 5:30am. Not because I’m so rested (although I am going to bed at around 9:30pm now) but because I am awoken by this strange queasy feeling in my stomach…which will not allow me to go back to sleep. Yuck. Here’s the email i wrote to Howie the first day of this experience:
Subject: You Cured Me
Hey, I appreciated your looks of pity this morning. I’m sorry i was so inconsolable. It’s kind of like a low grade nausea that makes me want to just keep moving without encountering anyone. I might just need to shark around the house in the morning. Y’know just keep swimming and try not to bump into anything.
However, i went to make myself a cup of tea after dry heaving for the 3rd time and found out you had bought me this delicious concoction of ginger and lemon. Just smelling it made me feel better. Thank you.
