I bet that all of you already know this, but three days of nausea will mess with your head when you want nothing more than for it to be morning sickness. I'm trying to rein in those feelings as much as possible and just ride through the storm for what it is... MISERABLE!

Yesterday, while jokingly telling "someone" (aka Fitness Freak/Guru) about the discussion that E and I had earlier this week... she informed me that morning sickness is only in your mind. It's not real - excuse me?

I'd love to hear from all the people out there that would love to slap this lady.

She went on to tell me that the only people she knows that have had morning sickness are people that are stay at home Moms that have time for such things or drama queens. Wow, that's really nice!

I'm here to tell you that nausea is real... it is not in your mind - believe me as I sit here and fight to keep my insides inside where they belong... I can only imagine that I will get really acquainted with morning sickness during my pregnancies... because you know - that's how I roll.

If there is some crazy, miserable, minuscule chance of some sort of symptom happening to's going to happen and happen BIG. John knows it, I know it... we've lived it... so I'm prepared... but I don't have to enjoy it.

For the record - I'm sipping sprite and eating saltines... and that's where I'm living right now. Not great weight loss surgery food choices, but seriously - anything else makes me curl up in a ball and beg for forgiveness.... so it's where I'll live until this passes.
