Goodbye sleep...hello nausea....

Im not sure if ANY of you of heard of pregnant girls feeling sick....?? "feeling sick" is an understatement by a loooong shot. And whoever created the term "morning sickness" is a lucky woman...(or stupid man) in my mind. I have yet to experience morning sickness. I have something called ALL DAY SICKNESS. And it means just what it says. Feeling like you're going to die all day long. God bless the woman who only feels sick in the morning. Truly you are lucky! 
I have yet to actually throw up. Its just constant nausea ALL DAY LONG. But its the kind that food doesn't help. My stomach isn't empty. And i dont have anything toxic to throw up. Its just my hormone's raging out of control! 
Now i will say, i feel so fortunate to be sick. Supposedly feeling sick means your baby is growing. And I feel so blessed that things are progressing how they should. If it means being sick for a few short months in exchange for a healthy baby..ILL TAKE IT!! But it the mean time...let me complain...it makes me feel better....

I have major issues with feeling like crud. Im sure everybody does. But im the ultimate baby. I HATE feeling nauseas. HATE IT. I was car sick as a little kid and thats where the nausea started. Anyway....no food helps this. Im a super healthy eater. I LOVE veggies and fruits and good pastas and salads! But baby mcclerkin does not like these yummy foods. Baby Clerk likes mcdonalds happy meals....and donuts...and taco bell. Let me tell you...NONE of those foods were on the "congrats that your pregnant...here's what you should eat" form....! In fact...all of those foods are BIG no no's! But i will say....for those who are pregnant or will become pregnant....eat what sounds good! Because if it doesnt sound good....you're in for a world of hurt sister!
Sooo the one thing that helps being sick all day, is SLEEP. Good ol sleep. But no....not in this lifetime. Im normally a solid 12 hour sleeper. I could probably go longer if my husband didnt jump on the bed trying to wake me up. But not anymore. After about 6 hours im wide awake. And its usually at 4 in the morning. Have you ever been up at 4 am?? Its a horrible time of the day. No one should be up then. Im just getting my good sleep at 4. But not anymore people...now my biological clock is preparing me for no sleep. Because in 7 short months...i wont be sleeping. Ill have baby waking me up to eat or be changed or wake up for the day...who knows! So sleeping doesnt work with my nausea! Because i cant sleep!! And i cant take tylenol pm because im prego..but let me tell you...if i could take tylenol pm...this would be a completely different blog! 
I think i have had enough complaining for a night. Thank you for listening..or i guess reading!! More positive posts tomorrow!! I have my first doctors appointment tomorrow and they are letting me know whats in store the next 7 months.....i truly am so excited!
