This post has been sponsored by GavisconSooo, you feel like you’ve been on a three-day bender without the fun of actually going on a three-day bender? Sounds like you have morning sickness. The worlds most stupidly named symptom of pregnancy because, as well all know, this bastard lingers all day long. For WEEKS on end.
He’s like that creep at the bar that just stares at you all night until it feels like his eyeballs are gently nudging the back of your neck. Why doesn’t he understand you’re not interested? Fuck off mate.
The horror of morning sickness varies for everyone. From a general “day after hangover” queasiness that lurks and makes you feel a bit gross and shaky, to the full-blown, throwing up everything you eat torture that is grounds for hospitalisation. Nausea is the worst. You can push through a headache. You can solider on with a sore throat. But bad nausea will have you flat on your back, wishing for death with every hiccup and burp that promises a spew.
If you’re extra lucky like me, you’ll score morning sickness through your entire pregnancy. Because the first twelve weeks didn’t break your spirit completely.
But there are ways to cope and to keep it under control (somewhat).
