At 15 weeks pregnant I’m just beginning to come out of that first trimester yuckiness that plagues so many of us. In order to keep Caly from being afraid over the last couple of months, I have tried to explain to her that Mommy’s throwing-up is a good sign and means that the baby is growing. Well, she thinks that’s great and likes to provide encouragement when I get sick. I can’t say it makes throwing-up any better, but it does make me smile. Later, that is.
Here’s a conversation from the other day:
Me: (throwing up in the bathroom)
Caly (yells from her bedroom): Mom, are you throwing up?
Caly: Is it because of the baby?
Caly: Good! Keep throwing up.
