(deep inhale through the nose...slow exhale through the mouth)
Remember those nights in college when you'd begin by forcing down cheap beer in your dorm room, then soon it went down much quicker...and before you know it you're tossing back whatever fruity jungle juice concoction your friends handed you in the big red keg cup?
More importantly, remember that feeling the next morning when your head spun, your stomach took it's revenge and you thought you should vomit (but couldn't)? Remember thinking pancakes would soak up your sins but instead made you gag?
That's how I feel this morning. Only, instead of binge drinking, I've begun growing an itty-bitty sesame seed. (Between the bloating and the gas, though, I'd swear I was up to an heirloom tomato by now.)
Exciting - Yes! Two years in waiting! But, oh my, I don't remember feeling this terrible last time around (nearly 5 years ago). Blech. All the hangover, with none of the humiliating photos.
I've come to the point of my post: how do you do it? HOW do you get to the gym when you want to just hug the toilet? HOW do you get out the door for a run when you have to pull out Lamaze breathing while bending to tie your shoes? I want to keep exercising, but man, I'd rather just curl up in bed and read people's status updates on Facebook. Not that that's a possibility with a 4 year old and a job, but a girl can dream.
How did you survive this trimester?
