Playing a Game

by Sariah S. Wilson

First, I would like to start off by saying that I think the third trimester is way too late to still be throwing up.

Second, I've been thinking all day about a potential blog idea and came up with nothing. Fortunately I have this document in Word with some blog topics - among them things I've swiped from other blogs.

I don't know where I picked this particular game, and yes, this is a cop out on my part, although it did require some brain function:

Rules: Use the 1st letter of your name to answer each of the following...They MUST be real places, names, things...NOTHING made up! If you can't think of anything, skip it. You CAN'T use your name for the boy/girl name question.

Your Name: Sariah

1. Famous Athlete: Shawn Bradley

15. Flower: Sunflower

16. Celebrity: Shakira

22. Something You Throw Away: Soot

23. Things You Shout: "Shut up!" (but not in a real shut up way, more of a disbelief way)

24. Cartoon Character: Sleeping Beauty

Please add your own list in the comment section if you're so inclined - and I invite the other bloggers here to put up their own lists this week.

I'll do it on Friday, Sariah, but I suspect this game is easier if your name starts with S instead of, say, J or K.

And now I'll reply to the sick thing -- I'm so sorry you feel this lousy, Sariah. I have known people who were still throwing up with morning sickness as they went into labor. Yeah, I know -- that's really comforting. But you're not alone! Just be sure to eat what actually sounds good to you and don't try to poke things down there that don't.

Yeah, unfortunately I am one of those people. With my oldest I remember dry heaving while they were doing the C-section - which is not easy to do since you need that middle part of you in order to throw up.

Unfortunately, nothing sounds good. Ever.

But it's all good - I wanted this. I begged for it for years. I know I shouldn't complain because I've been given this tremendous blessing, but I am admittedly a wimp. :)

I played, and it is harder with a J but thank goodness for the internet

I'm sure you've tried all these things, Sariah, but Ginger--cookies, tablets, teas. Peppermint--candies, teas, aromatherapy candles. Those Sea-band things worked for me as well. I'm so sorry you're feeling so icky and it's always hard to be grateful when you feel like crap--so don't beat yourself up about it. good luck.

I agree with Kerry. I did this list for my sister. She started out doing it with the name she goes by (Starts with "E") then changed to her birth name, much easier, starts with "L".
