nausea today and every day

OOee! The morning sickness is kicking my butt. I wake up after a fitful night's sleep tired out and feeling generally crummy. But some days it turns around and I feel great (if hormonal) later on in the day. I can tell I'm pregnant because I cried at the sappy Disney music they played at Georgia's ballet lesson and all the cute four year olds in their little pink tutus, seriously doing their stretches and plies at the bar. I guess that is kind of cute, but I think you have to get some serious hormones in there to make it something to cry over.

I find that I'm to the stage where cooking seems like too much to bear, especially since when I'm hungry I have to eat NOW or else get super nauseous. And I don't just want some raw ingredient I can put in my face, I want something GOOD. So I'm always wanting to go out to eat, somewhere healthy and fastish (just thought I'd mention that in case anyone wants to go with me sometime, like today, in about an hour).

I could use some prayers too. It's easy for me to lose perspective during this part of pregnancy because I am just starting to identify myself as pregnant but I am so constantly nauseous and fatigued that I tend to feel like 'I AM nausea' which is not very fun. I need to take my own advice about labor and stay focused on the spiritual and be detached and all those great things I said back then. Easy to say, hard to do. OOps, Maya can't find me, gotta go.

Prayers guaranteed, my lovely. And you ARE detached and spiritual and all the rest. Remember: it's still difficult evenwith the best spiritual focus or it wouldn't be a means of transformation. Love and prayers --

Hello, sweet one,

You know if I were in town, we'd be heading out to . . . SOMEWHERE . . . the cuisine of your choice. How's the garlic sensitivity? Eat some of those nummy green beans for me at the Chinese fast food.

Prayers are coming your way.

Much love,

P.S. I don't think I can attribute this to hormones, but I'm right with you on the tears over little ones in pink tutus at the bar with any kind of gentle music playing. A-hoo, a-hoo, a-hoo.

Boy, the nausea sounds serious and debilitating as I guess it always is. Hope itll be over soon and you can enjoy the rest of the pregnancy, Im already dreaming about the new baby and what it will be like. I hope a gentle one. I think about you every day and wish you yummy food and restful sleep. Wish I was there to go out with you.

I'd go out to eat with you too! Get leftovers or extra meals when you go out so you can heat it up if you need immediate good food. (Don't mean to be advice-ey, it just sounds like a good idea)
