Its my party and I'll whinge if I want to

Yesterday was the worst day yet, probably not helped by the fact that I had been awake since 3am, had to drive 1 hour into the city to drop Monkey Boy off at uni and then see my therapist, shop for some wool, go back to uni to wait for Monkey Boy and wait and wait and wait and felt like I was going to die.

Dry retched fairly constantly all day. Smells are really affecting me now. Especially the smell of a public toilet. Oh.My.God. Next time, I'll take that stuff the forensics dudes use when looking at mangled bodies.

Almost lost my meagre brekkie in the toilet before we left home, and almost lost my Subway sandwich in the David Jones Food Court at lunch. I'm not sure they would have appreciated that. Not at DJ's.

Despite this, I still managed to polish off an entire large bottle of ginger beer in the car on the way home, and insisted on stopping at the supermarket to get some peppermint icecream, of which I demolished a huge bowl with Ice Magic as soon as we got home. More retching. It was worth it though...mmmm...peppermint icecream....

My back hurts, my tummy aches, my boobs hurt, I feel bloated, I feel sick, I'm exhausted, my IQ has dropped considerably.

Waaaah.

P.S. Appropos of nothing, the Ticker...well the purple flowery bit is the same as the tattoo I have on my ankle (1st anniversaary present) and the butterfly is the same as the tattoo I have on my shoulder (finally got the guts up to leave first partner/happy 28th birthday present). Just thought I'd share.

  1. Ooh..peppermint ice-cream. I used to like that stuff but for some reason since I turned 29 I stopped liking it....that year I also stopped eating durians. Oh yuck.

    Have you been doing maternity gear shopping yet? I so look forward to that when it happens for me. :) Bring on the spandex.

  2. Yuck, sorry you're feeling shitty....

    My friend is a nurse, and she said that they use Vicks VapoRub (not sure if they have it Down Under, but it's a menthol salve that's put in a humidifier)in the hospital when there's nasty smells (like when they have to prepare a body)-you just scoop some out of the jar and smear it under your nose so that's all you can smell....

    Hope you feel less shitty soon

  3. Ginger beer is supposed to be fantastic for settling stomachs. That and salty chips! But yes, I completely understand the consumption of the entire lot. If I was feeling that nyergie I would be looking for stock in Ginger beer. As for ice magic....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm TAP TAP!!

  4. I haven't had peppermint ice cream in forever. When I was a kid we'd make our own with vanilla - my mom would put peppermint candies in a plastic bag and smash them with a hammer. Try it at home (mind your fingers)!

    Still, I'm glad to hear your hormones are doing well.

    ps I've heard that the smell of roses can help curb nausea. Try it out...

  5. What's ice magic??

    And... I'm going on-line to find the name of that pregnancy-safe morning sickness presciption that is available here in Canada... it was a life saver for me last time...

  6. FOUND it! It's called Diclectin... and all the pregnant women where I work have been on it... and swear by it. Even my Doctor took it with her two kids...

    See if it's available down-under... its a mix of a high dose of vitamin b12 and something else... I forget what...

  7. Once I was past the first trimester, the constant nausea dwindled to just a couple of times a day. Hope it passes soon for you!

Comments make blogging a conversation, rather than mere self-indulgent navel-gazing. Look at that big empty space down there...just waiting for your thoughts.
