Yes it’s true. I’m 14 weeks pregnant right now. What better way to celebrate this week in pregnancy then by throwing up for the first time since getting the positive on the pee stick.
Tarzan and I are out of town right now. We ordered room service a few hours away and I just got a caesar salad. Each bite I took reminded me how salty the salad tasted, but nonetheless, I did finish it. Shortly after eating the whole bowl, my stomach felt funny. Not like “I’m going to throw up now” funny, but just a rumbling kind of feeling.
I wasn’t sure what to do considering we are in a hotel. I decided to be prepared and asked Tarzan to put the garbage can by me… you know, just in case. Ha! Famous last words.
As he was bringing the garbage can over, he said “If you need to throw up, why not go to the bathroom?” (Oh Tarzan, you silly, silly boy. That would be too easy.) Next thing we know, I’m spewing out caesar salad (gross, I know) in the garbage can.
And my friends, this was no ordinary throw up. Instead it was the really smelly kind that almost makes you want to vomit just from smelling the awful smell.
There I was, throwing up in the garbage can, while sitting up in bed and holding my nose closed to try to keep the smell from entering it. Nice sight. Poor Tarzan was holding my hair back and rubbing my back as this was going on. I say “poor” because he was gagging. The smell got to him too.
He was a good husband and dumped the goods in the toilet while I brushed my teeth. My esophagus and throat feel like they are burning even as I type. It’s been a while since I’ve yacked, so I’m not quite sure I remember this feeling. All I know is that I hope it goes away soon!
So that was our night. Eating a gross dinner and having it come right back up. Isn’t it funny that I was able to stomach an egg sandwich, pimento cheese, doritos, and green olives all mashed together, but the caesar salad is what finally did it! And what’s more ironic is that I haven’t thrown up at all in my pregnancy yet.
Welcome to being 14 weeks of being pregnant. Please send some good pregnancy vibes and prayers that this was a fluke and that vomit will not be a part of my daily pregnant life.
