The past couple weeks my m/s has kicked in (just nausea) and is in full swing starting at 8 weeks (the full upchucking episodes!). Well, whenever I'm having a bad day and I can't do much of anything, I spend my time on the computer. Now I associate being on the computer with nausea! I sometimes get nauseous just walking in to the same room as the computer (usually only when it is on and I can hear its "hum"!).

Anyone else have these associations?

SO glad you mentioned this! Actually, for whatever reason, my wedding rings are doing that for me, every time I go to put them on (after showering, or cleaning them). I get a little wave of queasiness. The weirdest thing! And it's not even like they're that tight (yet!), but my brain associates being restricted (like my waistband), and of course that triggers my queasiness. Ha ha ha!

(for those of you who may wonder if it's some sort of psychosomatic marriage/relationship issue, rest assured it happens with any other rings, too! )

It could also be increased sensitivity to the refresh rate of your monitor. If you're feeling nauseated already the nearly invisible flickering can cause things to get worse.
