7w0d "Blah"

I'm back. I had a great trip with M and my family. The biking was fine and some days felt really good. Now that I am home, I have just been crashed out on the couch mostly. I am exhausted and super nauseated. So I don't really feel like blogging very much.
A couple of nights ago, M said something that summarizes how we both feel. We were awake in the middle of the night (partly due to me being sick, partly from jetlag). M said something like, "I feel bad you are so sick - but not really - and I feel bad that I don't really feel bad that you are sick."
Before anybody takes that the wrong way, we both feel that way. I feel horrible, but I am so glad that I am pregnant and I am happy to know that I am still pregnant. Yes, it would be really nice to be one of those women who doesn't have any morning sickness or indigestion, but I am not. So I'm a happy sick pregnant woman (although sometimes I do want to cry because I can't stop heaving - temporarily not happy).
Side-note. I am not currently very happy with the performance by BYU tonight. SDSU has done a great job shutting the cougars down. Still, disappointing. Hopefully they still get to go to the NCAA tournament.


  1. When I was pregnant, and had really bad 'morning sickness' with our now 2 1/2 year old toddler... someone told me the old wives tale that the worse your morning sickness, the stronger the placenta is... sounds like your placenta might be nice and strong :)) xoxo

  2. I'm sorry you aren't feeling well, I hope it gest better soon! Try to hang in there and I agree with PP, that must mean you have a strong placenta/baby in there!

  3. I am feeling the same way - and I've read a few times that the more morning sickness, the less likely you will miscarry. So every time I feel awful, I try to remember that. It gets me through the day...

  4. Glad you had a nice trip!
    I know exactly what you mean about feeling sucks to be sick but at least I feel like I can assume everything is going OK in there if I'm still nauseous and tired. If I woke up and spent the whole day feeling great I would be so worried!
    Take care and hope you are staying as comfortable as possible.
