Only it's not in the mornings. For the past 2 days it's actually been at 1:00 in the afternoon. Monday was a hard day. I spend over an hour curled up on the floor in the handicapped stall at work. I had many different women stop and come by my stall:
Random stranger: "Honey, are you alright?"
Me: "I'll be fine."
Random stranger: "Do you need anything? Wet paper towel? Ice water?"
Me: "No thank you, I'm just making a baby."
Random stranger: **COOING** "I remember when I was pregnant with my girls...." then they stood outside my stall telling me the story of their morning sickness while I was heaving and looking a lot like this:
I don't mind kindness from strangers. I appreciate their concern and their offers to help in any way they can. But I mean come on. I'm puking my guts up and you wanna chat?
To combat the sickness while at work Tuesday I came armed with a box of Saltine crackers and gingerale made with real ginger. And I was ready at 1:00 when it struck again. It was close. It was a battle. I won. I was trembley, queasy, and sweaty, but I didn't toss my cookies (or my crackers).
I'm glad that I'm right on track with everything. Maybe that means I will do this right and not screw it up. I won't even complain too much if the "morning" sickness happens only at 1:00 every day. At least I'll know when to expect it.
It does concern me a little that on my impending vacation to Boston, NYC, Salem, Providence, Binghamton that I'll be heaving in sidewalk trashcans though. That won't be much fun. I heard vitamin B6 helps so I may try that.
