I kinda can't believe this is it....I mean, I knew it was coming up, the end of NaBloPoMo, but this is it. The end of NaBloPoMo. A couple of people have told me they don't want me to stop posting regularly....I have to say, I am glad that I participated in NaBloPoMo. I needed something to get me going with my blog again, and posting more regularly. So, I'm glad I did this. And I am going to try to keep posting more regularly. Maybe not every day, but more regularly.

So, now I turn to the topic of my last post in November. Food. And throwing it up. I won't be insulted if you choose to stop reading now...

I used to hate throwing up. Now....well, now I still hate it, but I'm far more accustomed to it. I have raised it to an art form in fact. I have thrown up pretty much anywhere you can imagine...the kitchen sink, the bathroom sink, the basement sink...the driveway, a few parking lots, even in a plastic Stop and Shop bag while sitting in traffic on the Parkway. (That was fun.) And, of course, in various toilets around the state....including a few different ones at school. The funny thing about this is that when all of this first started, I was actually excited. I remember, the first few times I was throwing up, actually exclaiming to Russ "I'm throwing up, that means I'm pregnant! Isn't that AWESOME!?!?" Crazy, I know. That wore off rather quickly. Now....well, ultimately, I just want a healthy baby. If I have to throw up throughout my entire pregnancy, than I'll do that. But, I must admit, I really am getting a little tired of it.

The other funny thing is food. I don't really like food anymore. I don't like talking about food, looking at food, watching food commercials (there are a ton of them you know) or even watching Food Network (such a bummer). Eating is a bit of a chore, only because it's hard to figure out what to eat. And then, sometimes, I think I know what to eat, take a few bites, and discover that it just doesn't work. (That's what happened tonight with dinner....three bites into dinner and I had to run for the bathroom.) I want to eat. And, some days, I can. Most days I can in fact. But there is always that underlying nausea that follows me around all day. And that questioning if it will stay down or if I'll be running for the bathroom.

I don't mean for this post to sound like I'm complaining....I'm really not trying to. Like I said, if I get a healthy baby out if it than I'll do all of this and more....but I'm also kind of ready for the cravings and the non stop eating to start. Right about now.

You're so cute that you can even make a post about throwing up sound cute.

Congrats on NaBloPoMo! I'm super happy you did and also hope you keep posting more often - I love getting updates on your never-dull life!

NaBloPoMo also gave me a kick start. Like you, I doubt I'll post every single day, but hopefully more than I was.

I'm sorry you don't like food right now. I've never had that problem in my entire life. Hope you're soon able to keep stuff down a little better!
