This post is not meant to offend anyone. I know lots of my readers have been absolutely miserable during their first three months of pregnancy (and beyond), and I'm not trying to downplay any of your horror. This is simply a personal "hurrah, I actually have a NORMAL reason to whine" sort of gripe.
I hate nausea. I hate being nauseated. It is the one thing that will reduce me to an absolutely helpless puddle of yuck. And here's the kicker, I'm not even throwing up. It's just that yicky, icky "let's be happy because we have a strong pregnancy" overactive gag reaction.
And I'm whining about it. Because I can. Because in a way, I'm really grateful I have this to whine about. (How's that for twisted logic?) It's not depression. It's not Lyme-induced. It's not even a case of the flu. It's a perfectly normal, happy, healthy reason to whine.
