Silver Lining: a list of things that made me gag in the first trimester

a list of things that made me gag in the first trimester

Just because I think it's funny how many crazy things happen to your body when you're pregnant. And because I can. So, without further ado, a list of things that made me gag:

anything that had been in the fridge more than three days

leftovers of any kind

bread dough rising on the counter

me touching the bread dough

cooked bread

anything that had once been in a dough form (I didn't have a roll, bagel, pizza slice, cookie, or bun of any kind for three months)

"Mrs. Emery, look at my braces! I got brown and red for Thanksgiving!"

milk approaching the sell by date

people making gagging noises (thanks for nothing, Sam and Jason. It's not funny!)

"Mrs. Emery, remember that lunch box I lost in October? I found it, and look what happened to my sandwich!" (this was the closest I got to ever throwing up)

the smell of incense

the smell of dryer sheets

any time I walked past the dryer

any time we use the dryer

the different brand of dryer sheets I got to try to solve the problem


The good news is that my nausea is almost all the way gone now. I swear, it's a different world now that food in general doesn't make me sick. I have yet to eat an actual slice of bread, but I've had english muffins, breadsticks and even a bagel, so I'm getting there!

And here are some pictures of my tiny 15-week bump. Most people probably think I overindulged during the holidays, but there's a real live baby in there! We have a chance of finding out the gender on Saturday and I'm so so so so so so so excited. To put it lightly :)


  1. Hahahaha! This is awesome. It's crazy the weird stuff your body does, you're so right! With my son, I couldn't stand chicken. Like, I couldn't walk down the poultry section of the grocery store without honest to goodness having to run to the bathroom to puke. Or we'd go visit my parents and my dad would have a glass of wine and, ugh, straight to go throw up! With this pregnancy now, all I can is starchy stuff, like bread and rolls and bagels. Or FREEZING water. Anything else makes me want to gag!

  2. Ah! I just Love everything about you being pregnant!!

  3. So funny what your body does. I couldn't see, smell, look at, think about, and obviously eat chicken of any kind with Luke. My brother stayed at our place one weekend while we went on an anniversary trip and he had a can of chicken noodle soup and I almost died when I came home.

  4. I love love all these pregnancy posts! I am so excited for you guys!!!

  5. I knew when I only wanted ice water, lettuce and fish that I was expecting. I had no desire for anything remotely unhealthy, just wanted real whole food that I didn't participate in cooking. The sight of chocolate would send me running. Now it sends me running...TO it. Yes, pregnancy is a weird weird state, but the results so wonderful! Congrats again!

  6. Pregnancy is a crazy thing! I'm so excited for you!!

  7. I love this! I couldn't deal with dirty dishes or the kitchen sink in general. SO NASTY. I pretty much ate bean burritos and cold cereal during my first trimester. And the second, I wanted everything doused in caesar salad dressing. :)

  8. i want more baby posts, like right meow.

  9. this is so funny! Your bread dough rising and touching bread dough was hilarious!!!
