Morning Sickness…Say What?!

I am in need of some sympathy…not really, I just want to whine a bit.

I have had the WORST morning this morning. My Doctor has put me on the Norimin combined pill in order to decrease my risk of endometrial cancer and look after my bones. The last pill I was on two years ago (Levlen ED) made me nauseated for the first 3 months but after that it completely went away. I took the first Norimin pill last night and woke up this morning feeling so incredibly ill. I never wake up feeling like I’m going to throw up so this was just plain unusual. Dad told me not to go to work because my face had gone completely white and I couldn’t stand up due to my dizziness so I went back to bed. After an hour and a half of laying in bed feeling like arse monkies I went to the toilet in the hope that it would make me feel better. Then for the first time in a very long time I started throwing up. If this is what morning sickness feels like I never ever EVER want to have children. I am considering adoption actually. I have an insane fear of throwing up and will go to ANY lengths to avoid it so after that little episode I was in tears on the bathroom floor. S I think it goes without saying that I had a terrible morning. I went back to bed after that and went to sleep for an hour or so and I woke up feeling much better. 

I’m pissed off because I really need to be working and earning money for next year when I won’t have a job but these things happen. There is no point in being annoyed at myself for something I have no control over. I am not going to take anymore of those pills. However, if you would like to find out what morning sickness is like, look into taking Norimin. I understand why this happened though. The pill tricks your body into thinking it’s pregnant so it’s no surprise that it’s possible to feel nauseated for the first few months of taking it. But actually experiencing full on morning sickness without even being pregnant? Umm no thank you. I’d rather eat haggis. 

Have you ever taken a contraceptive pill for reasons other than contraception? If so, what were your experiences?


Home Sweet Home

Hey hey hey! 

I’m home now…sadly. I had such a great time in England (Essex more specifically) and I really didn’t want to leave. I enjoyed spending time with my family, eating great food and visiting awesome places. The flights were good but the food was questionable. It always tastes like airplane food, ya know?

I’m most likely not going to do a recap but just show you all the pretty pictures I took. After all, pictures speak a thousand words and that’s more than I can be bothered doing. But for now, I must carry on unpacking. When I got home, my room looked like this:

My suitcase just exploded, I swear!

Thankfully, it’s a bit tidier now. But I still need to find places for all my new stuff!

On another note, we had quite a big earthquake last night!  It was a 5.7 and usually I don’t freak out about earthquakes but last night I almost shat myself. I think what was really freaky about it was that it was so loud. We live near an airport so we are used to hearing roars of planes taking off so sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between wind, planes and earthquakes but it was clear that this was an earthquake when the house started to shake. It was earthquake weather outside so I really should have seen it coming. Earthquake weather is when everything is so still. You hear of people telling earthquake stories saying how still it was before the earthquake came which is what I like to call “earthquake weather”. Anyway, when it hit there was a huge jolt and I thought it was a gust of wind because I could hear roaring as well but when the house started to vibrate I could tell it was an earthquake. I thought it would have stopped at that but then the vibrating turned to swaying and the house started going to and fro. It was really scary! I just didn’t want the house to fall down. After the earthquake I had to go for a walk to calm myself down. Strangely after the earthquake had occurred, the wind picked up again. Spooky!

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! Ka kite (see you later in Maori) and I will update you more soon 🙂

The plane I was on had a wing!
