This woman is jammin’ my jam:
“First trimester? Worst trimester.”
“…the four major food groups: bread, butter, mashed potatoes and chips”
(Mine are: bagels, instant mac-n-cheese, smoothies, and milk)
I can’t even articulate how amazing it is to hear someone else going through the same thing. Everything is a secret and I just have to pretend I’m totally, absolutely keeping up with everyone else.
Really what happens is, I go to bed at 9pm. I never leave home without a value-pack of Tums. I take 15-minute bathroom breaks just to sit still and not have to read anything or attempt to converse with anyone.
Everything is a front, just to keep up the illusion that I’m not constantly wondering if I’m about to puke on this nice gentleman’s shoes.
