Now to convince my stomach. Although I've not actually had the joy of having my head in the toilet yet, pregnancy queasiness has definitely set in. Conversely, pregnancy weird craving-ness has also just set in. I just asked a colleague if I can have some of his peanut butter (a fellow North American) because I was desperate for a peanut butter and banana sandwich. I am now trying to win the battle between Hungry Lisa and Queasy Lisa to get this sandwich down. Queasy Lisa is slightly in the lead. Oh wait, no. Hungry Lisa is now winning. Mmmmmmm. Does eating peanut butter make me a bad Mum?
I've been using sea bands which seem to help, and keep a supply of crystallised ginger and various other nausea-friendly nibblies on my desk. I must try the lemon/ginger tea we've got in the kitchen, and luckily we've also got a box of peppermint tea on hand. I hate throwing up. I mean I seriously hate throwing up. I can count how many times I've thrown up on one hand* in the past ten years because I do everything I can to make sure I don't hurl when I'm feeling ill. Give me sore boobs, fatigue, constipation, 'roids, headaches, cramps, and constant peeing - just don't make me yak.
*That is, the number of times I've thrown up can be counted on one hand, not that I've thrown up on one of my hands.
