The Vomit You Want

So everybody I know is pregnant. Ashley, Jessica, my optometrist, my dentist, and my OB/GYN (She just had her twins), another woman from our Sunday School Class (brings the current total in our class up to four), a friend from playgroup and three other moms from Eli’s Mom’s Morning Out Class. So when I say everybody, I’m not really exaggerating all that much. So naturally when we convene on Tuesday Nights, the talk often turns to pregnancy and related issues.

Last night was no different. Since Jessica is now 12 weeks pregnant and announcing it (you may remember her from this entry) we started talking about vomit. What you don’t want to eat and vomit and what actually isn’t bad to vomit back up. Amy asked why I hadn’t written about this. I realized that I hadn’t, mostly because I felt like it might be a bit too gross. Maybe it is and then again maybe it will be helpful to one of the 40 pregnant women I know.

So here now for yours (and Amy’s) perusal, here are two lists of things. One is for things that are not good to vomit and the other is for things ok to vomit. Feel free to add your experiences to the list.

Not Good
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (too chunky!)
Vitamins (too bitter)
Spaghetti (too stringy)
Anything with fruit chunks in it
Omelet with onions in it
Chocolate Ice Cream

OK (Because ‘good’ in this context is just too far out of reach)
Orange Juice (tastes pretty much the same coming up as going down)
Honey Nut Cheerio Cereal Bars (very sweet)
Yeah, the list is short because let’s face it, vomiting is just gross.
