The other day out of desperation, I ate Real Food for lunch, then promptly had to make a run for the toilet. Lawlz.
Fortunately that seems to have been the worst of my morning sickness (knock on wood). Yesterday I managed to eat an ENTIRE baked potato. Oh sure, it was a small one, but I still ate the WHOLE THING. Victory!
My official opinion at this point is that it is way harder to be pregnant in my 30s than it was in my 20s.
Something that has irritated me for years and years now is that everyone misuses the word ‘nauseous.’ I mean EVERYONE.
When something is nauseous, it makes people want to throw up. For example, “The nauseous smell of rotten fish permeated the air and caused everyone to turn green.”
If you are nauseous, that means that you make everyone around you want to vomit. Maybe you haven’t practiced any sort of hygiene for a year. Maybe your personality is just that bad.
Nauseated is when you want to throw up yourself, probably because you’re trapped in a small room with the nauseous person and have no escape.
Because every single last one of you is misusing ‘nauseous’ when you’re supposed to be saying ‘nauseated.’ It’s not your fault, because the misuse is so ubiquitous that you have no clue that it’s technically wrong.
Consider yourselves schooled.
