to barf or not to barf?

yes, i've headed back into the "nausea" stage. it bites. i thought throwing up in the first trimester was bad...but doing it with a huge watermelon on your front gives it a whole new meaning. i decided to document my top five most memorable barfing moments (one of which was 5 minutes ago).

5. (5 minutes ago) Carpooling with my teaching friend, Charlotte...i had to pull over..mid-sentence... i threw open the door (on Main Street in Lehi, mind you...yeah, i was basically a museum piece that people were able observe on their morning commute) to puke...and puke...and puke some more.. it was disgusting. while puking, i accidentally kicked my foot out to the gas pedal, thus revving the engine (it's all about intimidation while puking). Charlotte, not many people know me as well as you now know me. i'm not sure if that is a good thing...
4. last week: Monday morning...feeling the nausea coming on in my classroom (before students were around- LUCKILY)... i grabbed the nearest bowl, and, whoops, peed my pants WHILE puking. just my luck, i had an interview after school that day...and was wearing a dress. yeah.
3. first trimester: mike made me a delicious dinner...one of my favorite spicy chicken sandwiches. half way into eating it, i sprinted for the bathroom....but only made it half-way in the sink, half-way in the toilet...and all over the floor. i've never seen so much come out of me in my entire life. sorry, Mike. it wasn't your cooking, i promise.
2. last week: on my way to my friend's baby shower...just driving along...all of a sudden the nausea hit me like a pound of bricks, i pulled over really fast, and just started going at it...and going at it...and going at it...by the time everything was out of me, i looked up and realized there was an entire family out on their front lawn watching me puke on their pavement. when i noticed the dog running over to investigate, i jumped out of the car and yelled, "you don't know me but i just puked all over your pavement." the dude of the group was kind enough to tell me not to sweat it...but definitely called his dog over and locked him up so he wouldn't eat my puke. seriously.
(drumroll) 1. first trimester: well, none still can beat my first trimester bonding moment with Mike....i've already blogged about it- so if you don't know what i'm talking about, you may read here. basically, side by side, mike and i puked together....nothing shows love like united barfing.

I'm trying not to laugh at your obvious pain and embarrassment, but I have to say that your stories are some of the best I've ever heard. Thanks!

Kristi said...

Oh Marci. That is so funny. But, I just feel horrible for you. I am experiencing the nausea and vomiting with my pregnancy quite a bit as well, and I'm hoping it goes away soon! Its no fun.

Marce said...

ClaysJenna said...

You poor thing! Im sorry but I did laugh out loud. And as funny as it sounds, I started throwing up!! Now. Blah this crazy pregnancy cycles haha:) At least the end result is worth it right:) Love ya girl!

melissa said...

those are good stories! sorry for the pukiness you are having..only a few more weeks to go though! i only threw up twice when I was pregnant-neither from nausea-only from being so emotional I cried so hard I threw up. ah-pregnancy

Lali Johnson said...

You are awesome... I totally feel your pain with peeing your pants while puking, happened to me every time with Sadie. Haha!

The Matthews Family said...

Okay, that was the best laugh I've had in a long time, Marce!! I can't relate with the barfing because I've never thrown up with my pregnancies, and actually, it's mostly because I won't let myself because I'm too scared to do it (I know that's probably even grosser- haven't done it in twenty years. No, really, not since I was nine.) Your blog is the greatest!! Dionne

Jeff and Whitney said...

Im sorry :-) You are almost there!

Tiffany Johnson said...

K, so I left a message on your phone... text, but just in case.. Saturday works for us.. you?

Ryan and Ashlee said...

Marci, you are too stinken cute! I love how you can write about puke, and it makes everyone smile instead of wanting to vomit! I only puked one time during my entire pregnancy and it was in my car in a cup... GROSS... you brought back memories! HA I love you and can't wait for you to experience motherhood. It's the best thing in the entire world! Good luck with your last few weeks!

Heather said...

haha oh Marce, you are so witty and adorable. i love keeping tabs on you through your cute posts! Can't wait to hear how it goes!! Love ya!

Wilson Clan said...

you are too cute! not to upstage you, and not wanting to share too many details, all i'm gonna say is movie theatre, and empty popcorn bucket. did i mention it was packed? don't think anyone noticed though! wheww! :)

Amy said...

oh dear- I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry while reading this. I think I did a bit of both. You are so funny and are probably the only person who makes barfing stories barable. I hope you get feelin better....15 days! OH MY GOODNESS!!! (sorry if this posted more than once, my computer's bein funny)

Britney said...

You're so funny! I love how you can share these awkward incidents like they were really humorous, but they were actually very painful and embarrassing moments for you.
