addicted to nausea?

So I have said that by the time I got pregnant I would actually be happy to be nauseated.  And by golly - every time I feel queezy I smile this big goofy smile.

I take this as a reassuring time that things are continuing to go forward and pump out the nausea hormones, but at a point I have started to realize that I'm getting a little addicted to it - to the point where I start to worry if I feel normal.

I really do love this feeling and yes it kind of sucks feeling like I am going to puke, but its the symbolism of it all and the reassurance of what it may represent that makes me just eat it up.  I'm pretty sure when the actual puking start and when its gone on for weeks I will no longer be so enamored with it, but for now I will take my odd enjoyment of the moment and love the nausea.


  1. I was practically the same way. Sure it sucks to be nauseous all day long, every day, but if it means my baby is doing well, by jove I'll be sick and I'll love it!

    I don't think one can truly appreciate all the "difficulties" of pregnancy unless they've had to fight tooth and nail for it. So enjoy all the "love" your baby is sending your way while you can!

  2. I was so excited to get sick because I knew it meant good things. Although my Dr put a downer on it saying it was the progesterone supplements and as soon as I stopped them all together I stopped getting sick. I was ok with it though. Had he not mentioned that I probably would have had a panic attack when it stopped so suddenly 2 days after my PIO and suppositories were done.

    Good luck!!! Enjoy that nausea....that sounds weird, but you get it.

  3. I feel the exact same way! I'm surprised it came so quickly, but thrilled to be feeling something that makes it all seem a little more real:)

  4. I hear ya. I always tell myself that when I finally do get pregnant, I will be happy to be sick as a dog if that's what it takes. I don't understand why women complain so much. If it helps me to feel more connected to the child growing inside of me, and gives me peace-of-mind that everything is OK, than I am all for it. Heck, I'll even puke with a smile and be the happiest I've ever been. :) Congratulations, and enjoy every second of it! You've certainly earned it!

  5. I am SO happy you're nauseous and loving it!!! :)
