I thought I was past this kind of stuff by now. This morning, I was running around trying to get things ready so I could drive an hour to work, as I do every Wednesday. I was trying to eat breakfast, make coffee, get dressed, and pack up my computer gear all at the same time before ds woke up.

I don't know if it's because I took my prenatal vitamin and supplements on an empty stomach, but I suddenly felt that queasy feeling I used to get back in the 1st trimester when I let myself get too hungry. I rushed to the sink and threw up what little I had in my stomach (vitamins and water), and the coughing and retching made me lose control of my bladder (again, haven't had this problem since 2nd trimester).

So I had to go change clothes and clean up the kitchen and explain to my now-awake toddler that Mommy had an accident. I made it to work about an hour and a half late. :

Pregnancy is just a ball o' laughs some days, eh?

Hey Super,

Yeah it's a barrel of monkeys. (extreme sarcasm here)

I've had those issues non-stop since the first tri. It stinks. Especially with a three y.o. observing and saying things like, "Ewww, gross Mommy!"

And I'm thinking, "Hey, kid, I held your hand while you were coughing and throwing up and didn't complain!" I didn't say it though. She IS 3...and I'm...uh, not 3.

Hope it's just a one-time thing and not a pattern for you!

yeah, my nausea has returned at times too. I think it's cause the baby is so big there's just not a lot of room in there for things like, oh, the REST of my organs!

brandyk, my blood sugar has been pretty low these last couple of weeks. I thought it was because the medicine finally kicked in. At any rate, I am trying to eat more now because I can!
