Good - Burning Stomach Bile

This morning I tried eating some rice cake before getting up and drinking water. I was doing good. I got showered, dressed and into the kitchen to help finish packing up lunch. My stomach twinged as I put sour cream in containers for our potatoes. I finished and then started to feel my salivary glands kick it up a notch. I was at the kitchen sink hurling up my little bit of food and all the stomach bile. YUCK! It burns!

I started to feel better and sat down on chair in the dining room. Jared went over to the sink and saw the contents of my stomach in a glass and on the dishes and picked up a glass to clean it out for some reason (let's get this straight now, I was not going to leave it to rot all day I was going to wash it all down the drain). He dropped the glass and ran to the top of the stairs across the kitchen trying to choke back the feeling of throwing up. I sat in my chair cracking up laughing at him. He really can't handle any one's throw up. What's he gonna do when we have our child throwing up?

So later Jared tells me, "I'm not sure how this is supposed to comfort you but I keep hearing how it's a good thing you are sick because your body is doing what it's supposed to." I am so tired of hearing that already. I'm fine with being sick but that is no comfort when you are throwing up burning stomach bile. I called my mom on the way in to work for comfort and got the same that's good stuff and said, "No Mom! That's not what you are supposed to say. You are supposed to say...I'm sorry honey that your throwing up and that it burns your throat. I know it hurts." She laughed at me and I chuckled.

Thank you to everyone for the suggestions on keeping the morning sickness at bay. I've settled on rice cakes for the bedside snack with water. I'm stopping at the store on the way home for Werther's Originals and Jolly Ranchers (not sure if I'll like the Jolly Rancher's as I am a picky fruity hard candy eater).

Jared told me today I need to do more pictures as I've only been doing thoughts. So maybe sometime this week I'll catch up on some of my pictures at home. I already took a 1st pregnancy photo and plan on doing it every month on the 14th now going forward.


  1. Sounds like you'll get stuck cleaning the kids' throw-up at your house! :-)
    Sorry you're sick. It just plain stinks. But, believe me, it will be worth it when the baby is born.

  2. I am sorry you are so sick. I also get very sick while I am pregnant - all 4 kids - until about 16 weeks or so. It is no fun. And it feels like you have the flu all the time. It is no fun. Also from past experience - I had to avoid all dairy until I was past this stage. I hope you get past this stage before too long. - Valerie

  3. If you can't stand the smell of something don't pack it for lunch. I had to eat plain potatoes and peanut butter and jelly and anything that had a bland taste for most of the first 3 or 4 months.

  4. Hang in there Emily - It's so worth it!
