so i've been really sick. really, really, disgustingly ill, and have been having a hard time not being mad about it. i mean, i know it's normal (at least for me) and everything but that doesn't mean it's fun. anyway, yesterday i had my first appointment, and i got to see the little peanut on sonogram, and for some reason the sight of a strong beating heart and little limbs made the misery easier to bear.
still, when i dropped by the mall today to get a belly band (not that i need one yet--i've lost almost 10 pounds from all that hurling) i noticed that there were "preggie pops" for sale at the counter at motherhood. i'd heard about these, and like most people desperate for relief i was interested in trying. they're basically like all natural candies with some herbs thrown in or something. i bought the little container, and as we were walking out of the mall i tried a tangerine one.
yuck. made me feel worse if that's possible.
but i thought maybe it was just that particular flavor. so i resolved to try again later.
five minutes ago i tried sour apple, and that one actually sits better for some reason.
still, i have to say i'm still undecided on the efficacy of these things. when it all comes down to it, it seems like all it helps do is give your barf a nice candy flavor, which really is better than regular flavor. if you know what i mean.
