"As for me, I'll take one baby marinated in a dish please"

Where have you been the last few weeks?

There is a very simple explanation for where I have been the last few weeks. I have been on the couch. I have, in fact, spent so much time on the couch, that I have created a permanent indentation in one of the seat cushions. I will occasionally change my position on the couch to obtain a higher level of comfort, but other then going to bed, going to work, going to the bathroom, or throwing up in the bathroom, I have not really left the couch. I have thought about writing in the blog numerous times, but then a wave of nausea overwhelms me and I sit back and watch another re-run of “Man vs. Food”, or “Dual Survivor.” I think I have even memorized entire episodes. Have no fear, if I ever become stuck in the African jungle, I might die of toxic water, hippos, poisonous spiders, or dehydration, but Cody Lundine showed me how to make an awesome floating boat made out of jungle grasses, so I might just make it a couple miles longer. Although I couldn’t promise those couple miles would be in the right direction.

Actually, I have already told Ben that if I were to ever become lost in an unpopulated area, he should grieve and move on. No amount of Dual Survivor could save me, and that I am sure of.

Anyway, I have a sneaking suspicion that my misery and exhaustion is directly correlated to how awesome I was telling people I was feeling for the first 7 weeks.

Typical conversation:

Person: How are you feeling?

Me: Kind of tired, but other than that great! It’s like I almost want more symptoms because I feel so good right now. I feel nothing but good (good natured and blissful laugh).

Person: That’s great. You are one of the lucky ones…

Me: I guess so. Like I said before, I feel so good, it almost worries me. Ha Ha. I almost don’t want to be one of the lucky ones so I know everything is going ok in there. Ha Ha.

End conversation

And here is my lesson for the day: Be careful what you wish for, because it might just come true. Reading those ha ha’s above irritates me because I was the one making those cackles and actually wishing to be sick. I wish the Krista of old could have met the Krista of new. It would have shut her up in a second.

Anyway, I hope to be posting more frequently in the next few weeks and throwing up a lot less. But until then, you can find me sipping on ginger water and eating goldfish on the couch in front of my TV.

  1. I have always heard when you are sick the first trimester the healthier you little one is. When I read that, I pretty much started looking forward to the 1 - 2 times a day vomit sessions ;0)
