Ugh…What is This?

So, for the first time in my pregnancy I got sick today!  What on earth?  Is this some lame joke?

Now, I’ve been nauseous on and off through out the pregnancy and I do have very strong food aversions (please do not serve me chicken or pork!), but I haven’t actually gotten sick until today.

I got up, got dressed and got ready to follow Jeff to VW to drop off his car for inspection.  I fixed a bagel (very normal breakfast for me), but about half way through, I didn’t want it so I threw it away.  I decided to drink some OJ so that I could get my prenatal vitamin down.

Pants ironed and on the man, treats in the cats and dog and we were out the door.  Picked Jeff up from VW and headed to Chesterfield to drop him off at the Arboretum.  When we were almost there I started feeling really nauseous (again, very normal) and decided to grab my normal stomach settler, McD’s hashbrowns (2) and a small coke.  I dropped Jeff off and headed to McD’s, making it to the parking lot before the upchuck started.  No details – I promise.

I’ll just say I drove to an empty parking lot nearby so no one would see me getting sick and decide to skip breakfast that morning.  I then called Jeff and asked him to meet me in his parking lot with wet paper towels and tissues.  Once I got myself together, I headed to a gas station for a coke & then home.  So much for training for work today.

I’ve laid on the couch & slept a lot and now I’m going to do a couple things to get ready for work tomorrow.  Jeff’s car is ready so I’ll be heading to get him and to VW soon.  I’m supposed to go grocery shopping today, but I’m really not feeling it.  We’ll see if Jeff can fend for himself food-wise for tonight and I’ll go shopping tomorrow.

Lesson to future pregger women – always have supplies on hand for when the sickness hits.  Just because you’ve gone nearly 12 weeks without getting sick, doesn’t mean it won’t sneak up on you!

Hope all your days are not so icky!

Oh, Baby!

So Warren made me originally start this Xanga blog as a way for him to keep up with me.  Since then, he’s ditched Xanga and I’ve gotten a myspace page and a facebook page.  You’d think that would be enough.

Nope – he wants a Baby Blog now.  So I’m granting him his wish.  My goal is to update weekly on what is going on inside & outside me.  I will try to update more than I can right now – work is really busy.

As of today, I am 11 weeks 4 days pregnant.  For former pregnant ladies, that does not count any time prior to conception because I had a short monthly visitor after I was pregnant.  My dates were set using an ultrasound.

So far, the baby is named BEAN until we find out if we’re having a boy or girl.  After that, we’ll start calling Bean by his/her to-be-given name.

I’ll post pregnancy pics, too, but the one from last week is on my computer at home.

Thanks for checking in and keeping up with me!
