Morning Sickness Sucks

I promise and cross my heart that I WILL NOT be one of those whiney, bitchy pregnant women who tries and tries to get pregnant and then does nothing but complain about it. That being said, let me (just this once) have a teensy, weensy bitch session. With my last pregnancy the worst I had was a little fatigue and some heartburn. I figured I was going to be one of the few that gets away with no real sickness. In the past couple of days I have gone from sleepy and a little queasy to exhaustion, headaches, killer heartburn, being hungry all the time but not being able to eat, and the best part of all... The nausea. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Ok, bitch session over. I just had to vent.

bitch all you want. hating the crappy parts doesn't make you any less grateful for the opportunity to bitch about that stuff vs. all the crap it took to get you here. Sucky stuff still sucks.

one word.... ZOFRAM.

It was my best friend while pregnant. I was so very sick. Not like Mandy, but I was getting close.

Complain all you want. I learned that after the pregnancy test, nothing was like I had planned/hoped while dealing with infertility. NOTHING. If you look at my blog while I was pregnant, plenty of whining when on, especially when the sciatic pain developed.

Just because nausea and pain sucks does not mean that you are any less happy to be pregnant.

Sorry about baby C. Hang in there A&B.

Now you can revel in the fact that you have pregnancy to bitch about! You're a woman! There's alwasy something we can find to complain about... (personally, anyway!). I'll tell you the same thing I told Mandy early on... the very first nurse practitioner I saw when I was pg was worried because I didn't have any symptoms (She even asked "You mean your boobs don't even hurt???") then she went on to tell me that they would actually feel more comfortable if I had more symptoms, because that means that my body had fully engulfed itself in being pregnant... and we all know mine didn't end quite as planned.

So bitch on, sister! We're not here to judge, we're here to support you in whatever you're feeling.

You finally have what you've waited so long for so I think that you have every right to whine about pregnancy symptoms just as everyone else does! And just like KrisandRod said - I'd worry if there weren't any sucky symptoms to bitch about so keep us well-informed of all those symptoms!

I'm sorry that baby C won't make it, but I am so thankful that you saw the strong heartbeats of your other two miracles! Aren't they amazing already? Beating hearts so early in development! *Teary-Eyed Smile* I'm so happy for you (except for the nausea part!)! :-D

Aww...hope your m/s doesn't last long.

Go ahead and bitch all you want! Heaven knows you are entitled. Being sick totally sucks and it gives you plenty of reason to complain.

Now if you were whining about something stupid, I'd think about smacking you. ;)

I say bitch on! It took a lot to get you to this point, and I don't think there is any harm in bitching. Like Nickie said, sucky stuff still sucks!

Of course, I understand why you feel the way you do. I feel anxious about bitching about any morning sickness or exhaustion, but it's what I'm feeling at the moment!
