And I did. I barfed my brains out three times this morning at 5 weeks 1 day. Never in my life have I been so thrilled to throw up. I feel like I earned some sort of pregnancy badge, as if this was the Girl Scouts. I don’t have many symptoms to speak of, so to see one pop up was both miserable and exhilarating.
I’m hoping this isn’t a regular thing though. It was pretty rough. When I mentioned this to my mom, she encouragingly replied “Whoa, yeah, get ready for a few months of that! I bet you’ll be just like me and I couldn’t leave the bed for months. Just eat saltines and water and you can get through it.”
Thanks, mom. Can’t wait.
* As a side note- I just realized I need a new category for pregnancy posts! This is exciting, but I get worried every time I do something pregnancy related…like I’m going to jinx things. So silly, I know. I have yet to let myself sign up for any pregnancy websites. I’m waiting until the 6 week ultrasound to start getting really crazy!
