I have passed initiation. I am officially pregnant. How did I come to this conclusion- that I am "officially" pregnant? True, I have been "officially" pregnant for quite some time now... because, well, you can't be more pregnant. You either are or aren't. However, alls I'm saying is that if pregnancy was a club, I just completed initiation. That's right...
Do you want to know how this happened? It is the dumbest reason... no really. You are allowed to laugh at me. The evil, wicked tool of torture??
That's right. I threw up due to brushing my teeth. The thing is, when I used to brush my teeth (pre-babyinthebellay), I would accidentally gag myself all the time because I am serious "tongue-brusher"... I think tongues need to be brushed quite thoroughly. However, your gag reflex becomes quite a bit stronger and more demanding when you are pregnant. Thus, before when I would gag, my body would say, "::Gag:: Oops! You are good... no worries!" Now? Now my body says, "::Gag:: Hey! You are throwing up! Let's do this thing!"
I have nearly thrown up recently while brushing, but I have been able to drink water in order to stop it from happening. I have been grateful for this blessing- the ability to stop the purging. Yesterday morning? Not so much. I drank water, yes. However, I knew that this time might be different... which is why I decided to visit the Porcelain Express. Thankfully I hadn't eaten breakfast yet, so I only threw up my spleen.
This is all to say that I am now an official, sworn-in member of Club Pregnant. Thank you and good day.
