Wake Me Up Before I Blow Blow

October 16, 2007

So. Facking. SICK.

It’s been coming and going of late, but this week the all-day-all-night morning sickness has been coming with a vengeance. Lay-me-out-on-the-floor-and-wrack-me-with-nausea-when-I-should-be-packing-and-painting-and-trying-to-sell-a-house-and-oh-yeah-caring-for-my-very-possibly-bionic-toddler kinda vengeance.

It sucks, it just really sucks. When do I start glowing? When do I start facking glowing?

Rant over. Please send ginger ale wishes and Diclectin dreams.

And remind me why I wanted to do this pregnancy thing again?

(Right, yes, I know: more babies to love, more familial bliss, yadda yadda. At this point, that may not be enough. I’m goin g to need serious presents.)

    Oh, darlin’. I’m so sorry. Wish there was something I could do for you.

    Hang in. It’s got to end soon.

    slouching mom October 16, 2007 at 9:45 pm

    The nausea, I mean. Sheesh.

    Lisa b October 16, 2007 at 9:46 pm

    sucks.

    yeah.

    Sorry.

    Janet October 16, 2007 at 9:49 pm

    I don’t know how we do it. Seriously, my husband gets a cold and he’s on the couch asking if I can bring him gingerale.

    Women rock.

    Hope you get to a less nauseous place really, really, really soon.

    flutter October 16, 2007 at 10:12 pm

    Oh babe, you and chicky have really been going through it! have you tried reflexology?

    chelle October 16, 2007 at 10:14 pm

    So way harder with a toddler … sending get well vibes your way!

    Alley Cat October 16, 2007 at 10:34 pm

    I’ve got nothing useful to offer except a virtual hug. I hope you feel better soon.

    Beck October 16, 2007 at 10:40 pm

    “Morning” sickness is a big jerk.
    The fact that it doesn’t last forever doesn’t help while you’re LIVING THROUGH IT.
    Best wishes.

    Heather October 16, 2007 at 10:45 pm

    The (perhaps only) great thing about morning sickness is that one day it’s just gone…and you almost don’t notice it.

    With my last pregnancy the nausea lasted until about 16 weeks. Argh. Hope it’s not that long this time.

    Granny October 16, 2007 at 10:55 pm

    Somehow I missed the morning sickness with all but my youngest. Once was enough.

    I hope it leaves soon.

    nomotherearth October 16, 2007 at 11:14 pm

    Sometimes it’s all just too much. I have to keep reminding myself that it’s worth it. It is..right? Hang in there. Next time I see you, I’ll be sure to carry some gingerale on me.

    motherbumper October 16, 2007 at 11:16 pm

    Oh yes, serious presents are a must. Sending you all the positive crazy vibes I got girl.

    Heather October 16, 2007 at 11:34 pm

    Morning sickness is SUCH a bitch! I hate her.

    So sorry you are suffering.

    Kyla October 16, 2007 at 11:38 pm

    I know. I remember. I think I still have post-traumatic stress flashbacks from it all. Pregnancy never made me glow…unless you count the fact that spending 75% of my day with my head bent over the toilet made my cheeks rosy.

    Feel better, Cath. Soon, I hope.

    Major Bedhead October 17, 2007 at 1:19 am

    Can you get the anti-puking drugs or do you have to beg and plead and throw up for three months first? Maybe you and Mrs. Chicky can set up a cross-border drug exchange.

    I hope it all goes away soon.

    ImpostorMom October 17, 2007 at 8:14 am

    i know you’ve probably gotten tons of advice, but here’s one more. When I was pregnant the only thing that helped the nausea was green apples. Sounds weird but I bought the pre-sliced ones at the store and ate bags and bags of them during that first trimester.

    Here’s hoping you’re getting close to the end of that morning sickness stuff.

    Naomi (Urban Mummy) October 17, 2007 at 8:25 am

    One day it will all just be a (bad) memory. Really.

    Oh, and why you want to do this? Don’t forget that extra $100 per month courtesy of the government!

    Hope the nausea passes soon!

    Don Mills Diva October 17, 2007 at 9:41 am

    I feel for ya. Hope it goes away soon and you can start enjoying your pregnancy.

    Tuesday Girl October 17, 2007 at 10:12 am

    I had the same thing. This pregnancy I was so sick that i wondered every day why I wanted another baby. I was that was for 14 weeks.
    Now that Ia m 18 week I feel better and I am getting excited. Take one day at a time. ((hugs))

    Hannah October 17, 2007 at 10:30 am

    This pregnancy I spent 12 weeks (almost to the day!) feeling like I’d been poisoned by progesterone and wishing I could just curl up somewhere and die… the whole time with a two year old bouncing off the ceiling wondering why I didn’t want to play. One morning I woke up, suddenly clear-headed and feeling like I could run a marathon. This too shall pass. Hang in there.

    Mrs. Chicky October 17, 2007 at 11:09 am

    Feeling you.

    Ugh.

    Redneck Mommy October 17, 2007 at 11:10 am

    At this point in time, I’d take the nausea of baking a new baby over the nausea of waiting to see if the government arses will hand one over to me.

    Bah.

    The upside is, my nausea will pass quicker than yours. And hopefully will end with the same result: a babe.

    I’m thinking of you and your pukey glow. You’ll always be beautiful to me.

    Smooches.

    kittenpie October 17, 2007 at 11:10 am

    I send you wishes that it only lasts to about week 12 or 16, as mine did with Pumpkinpie. I’d send hugs, but I don’t want to squeeze your poor tummy.

    kgirl October 17, 2007 at 11:25 am

    you are funny. like kp said, i’d send you a hug, but i’m afraid you’d barf all over me.

    this too shall pass… this too shall pass…

    (oh yeah, and don’t forget that pregnancy is the EASY part.)

    Amanda October 17, 2007 at 11:38 am

    Acupuncture. I know, needles can be scary, but it is one of the easiest fixes and on my honor, it works. They’ll put a couple of needles in your wrist and voila, gonezo, at least for a while.

    Amazing the power we have to forget, isn’t it? I am at 13 weeks and finally starting to believe I might survivie this.

    Sarah October 17, 2007 at 1:40 pm

    you poor baby. i threw up every day for 27 weeks with my first, and still managed to forget how bad it was and do it again. I remember one day going shopping with my sister and her perfume made me so nauseous I made her sit in the back seat of the car, walk 10 paces behind me and scrub herself clean in the bathroom at second cup. it will pass, and eventually even the memory will fade!

    mothergoosemouse October 17, 2007 at 1:54 pm

    The promise of presents does hold magical healing power.

    I wish I could do something more than promise presents though.

    BOSSY October 17, 2007 at 2:56 pm

    Sorry girlie. Hey, why don’t you and Chicky Chicky Baby hole-up in a breezy white room somewhere and whisper until it goes away?

    ewe are here October 17, 2007 at 3:42 pm

    Ugh. Sorry you’re having a hard time with the nausea…

    Karen MEG October 17, 2007 at 4:43 pm

    Hope it passes soon. As it’s been said before, it will all be worth it in the end. But for now, it ain’t fun. Hang in there.

    iheartchocolate October 17, 2007 at 9:41 pm

    Girl, get yourself some zofran, it will kick your nausea’s arse! If you haven’t tried it, it’s a pregnant woman’s best friend! (eat extra prunes though, hehe)

    Cool Mommy October 17, 2007 at 10:09 pm

    I feel for you, I really do. My first pregnancy was easy-peasy and this one is lots o’barfing and the thought of barfing… my poor 2 yr old imitates me gagging and such…but 2 weeks to go until all this is over and baby is here…

    you can do it!

    Jozet October 18, 2007 at 12:13 am

    You know why you got pregnant again:

    for the big underwear.

    Here, old mama. Read this again. It will make you feel sane.

    http://yonkogirl.blogspot.com/2006/07/this-epic-post-is-not-about-bats.html

    To this day, I can’t drink ginger ale. It makes me feel pregnant.

    painted maypole October 18, 2007 at 1:22 am

    bionic toddler?

    sending you lots and lots of saltines…

    -The Shiny Happy Mama- October 18, 2007 at 9:02 am

    Sending you non-puking, happily pregnant vibes…

    And a hug.

    Jaelithe October 18, 2007 at 11:16 am

    I never glowed. I was just . . . sick. A lot. Until the fifth month or so. And then I wasn’t nauseous anymore, but my back hurt, my hips hurt, my feet hurt, my ribs hurt, and I had to pee every ten minutes, so I really couldn’t muster much glow then, either.

    I hope you feel better soon!

    Pendullum October 18, 2007 at 11:16 am

    Feeling for you….
    Sending you saltines, rice cakes, flat ginerale thoughts your way….

    mamatulip October 18, 2007 at 2:54 pm

    I feel for you. Both my pregnancies were the same way.

    Hang in there.

    Damselfly October 18, 2007 at 3:16 pm

    HBM needs presents! What can I give you?

    Hope the nausea ends soon!

    LD October 18, 2007 at 9:24 pm

    so, so sorry. Maybe it’s a boy?? That was the brand of parasite that caused all of mine…

    Here’s wishing you happy days ahead.

    pinks & Blues Girls October 18, 2007 at 10:23 pm

    The glowing comes when you’re in labor, and I believe at that point it’s called sweating buckets. :) Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Jane, Pinks & Blues

    Mom101 October 18, 2007 at 10:55 pm

    I’m so sorry your royal badness.

    Just remember, the puking lasts a few weeks. The saggy boobs last a lifetime.

    Oh wait…that didn’t help, did it.

    Kate October 19, 2007 at 1:12 am

    The thing that kept me sane was a shopping trip, nothing flamboyant (its hard to to flamboyant with a chucky bag in one hand!) but a small shopping trip where I went and purchased a gender neutral cutesy outfit for baby to come home from the hospital in!! It hangs up on the wardrobe door at the end of my bed and I look at it trying to think what the parasite will look like wearing it. Yes its still there, am 25 weeks up now and am waiting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, oh the spewing stopped a while ago but I still feel nausea everyday.

    AnotherMomCreation October 19, 2007 at 12:09 pm

    Ah, yeah that’s called selective memore because a mere year from now you won’t remember the hacking being so bad, the naseau will be “not so bad” and you’ll think, that pregnancy stuff is pretty easy isn’t it….?

    Ruth Dynamite October 19, 2007 at 12:43 pm

    Hang in there, mama!

    Mrs. Mustard October 19, 2007 at 12:53 pm

    Mmmm…gingerale.
    Also, talk to your pharmacist about adding gravol to the mix. MotherRisk says that if you are taking 4 diclectin a day and still feeling sick, you can add up to 4 gravol a day. I found that this helped me.

    jenB October 28, 2007 at 3:21 am

    as a fellow sicky through most of pregnancy, i am offering sympathy and sisterhood. *shakes fist in the air*
