PLEASE let this be a one time thing..
So let me start with last night.. there was a thunder storm which means Ollie and Grace were both in our bed because they don't like thunder.. especially Ollie.. we have learned that if we don't let him in our bed when it is thundering he will scratch at our door ALL night long (he even tore the carpet up one time when we tried to leave him in the livingroom during a thunderstorm). Well at about 3 am the thunder clapped extraordinarily loud and woke Grace up, so of course she thought it was time to play.. and let me tell you there is no getting that child back to sleep.. she has to play it out, literally. So Chris and I had to get up with Grace, and I started feeling a little woozy, like the sight or thought of food made me feel sick, and I was a little dizzy, but I just chalked it up to me being extremely tired. Finally Grace went back to sleep at 7 am! That child is going to kill me. I was so thankful to be able to go back to sleep, but then at 9:30 my body woke me up.. I just knew I was going to have my first experience with morning sickness, so I ran to the bathroom, but nothing happened. I still felt horrible (like it was coming no matter what), so I sat on the couch waiting, and here I am at 2:30 pm, still nothing. I feel absolutely gross. I have to look away from restaurant commercials because the sight of food makes it worse. Every five minutes I feel like it's finally going to happen, but then nothing. It is miserable! 5 hours of nausea! I have never had this before. I only threw up twice the whole time I was pregnant with Grace and there was no nausea involved. I was fine one minute, sick the next, and then fine again. I am just not used to this at all.. This is taking my mind off of it a little bit, and I am sucking on some hard candy (thank-you for the advice Erica!) which seems to be helping some, but I just want it to go away. Please Lord only let this be a one time thing!!
