So, I know, I know… I haven’t posted in several days. I’ve been hit with some serious morning sickness, and have been having a hard time dealing with it.
I dance with a modern company in Memphis, and we are just starting intensive rehearsals leading up to our holiday show. The timing couldn’t have been worse. It takes me three or four hours in the morning to get moving. This food guide has been helpful for figuring out what won’t make me feel like hurling.
I now see why parents think their kids take them for granted. My kid better think I hung the fucking moon after all this.
E. did convince me to try these Japanese pickled plums. They taste like death warmed over, but they do seem to help some. Meanwhile, I just cry a lot and long for the days when I rolled out of bed at 7:00a.m., drank a pot of coffee, went for a run, and headed into work. Wish I hadn’t taken them for granted…
On a positive note, I did start my prenatal Yoga video today. It was good… a bit too easy at this point, so I think I’ll still be supplementing with my regular Yoga practice.
