What I learned this weekend…I am no longer 22 years old. Now you think I would have known that by now, but apparently not, since I managed to be throwing up and feeling hung over without ever taking a sip of alcohol.

Yesterday was my soon to be sis-in-law’s bridal shower and bachlorette party. Shower went well but the bachlorette kicked my butt. I drank water all night, at one point running across the street to one of the best ice cream shops in the area and got a chocolate malt (LOVE those). I danced like a crazy girl! Headed home around 12:30, in bed at 1. Yeah, late, but not crazy late. Well darling little Q, who has not once kept me up at night, decided that the dance party should not end and wanted to keep on partying with the girls. For about 45 minutes she was going crazy, possibly trying out for the Ro.ckettes, I’m not sure. Finally fell asleep and then I woke up at 5 SO sick. I was miserable. It is not fair that not only was I sober all night, but I still ended up sick. (as an aside, being the only sober person can be hysterically funny, drunk people do really stupid things) And today I felt like I drank a bottle of vodka, tired with the headache and when every single movement hurts. I’m wondering if it was the smoke in the bars since we went out in VA instead of the District or maybe just the change in routine. All I know is it SUCKED.

Tonight will be a very early night for me, I’ve got a killer week at work and then I’ve got private clients lined up Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (for the record, next time I tell someone I can work on a Friday after I already worked all day, I need one of you to slap me). The only reason Wednesday is free is that it’s Mr H’s birthday. After all the party planning I did the last few weeks I completely forgot about it. Got to see about dinner reservations somewhere.

Off to straighten up. Mr H has been out of town since last week and the place is a complete mess. Hope everyone had a good weekend

    Yum, a chocolate malt sounds really good. I can’t party like that any more either. I hope you make it through your week okay.

    Good to hear another update from you. Dancing sounds fun, but the puking sounds terrible! Smoky bars suck!! I’m sure the smoke is the primary contributor to your headache. Have a good week!

    Hope you feel better soon!I used to be a smoker and now I can’t imagine why those smoke filled rooms never bothered me.

  4. Michell replied:

    Oh yes, the sick without being drunk sucks. Mine was with a single glass of wine which didn’t agree with me at all. Hope you are feeling better by Monday (today). And wow, you sound busy. Hope the week goes ok too.

    A hangover with no drinking! No fair! Hope you’re feeling a little better today!

    I’m with Rebecca — there is nothing fair about a hangover without drinking. Ugh. I too am guessing the smoke was a major contributor — I feel very spoiled being in MA.

    Party Like a rock star!!

    Chocolate malt sounds so yummy! The headache and hangover feeling while being pregnant and sober, not so yummy! Hope you feel better soon. That commercial that says “Having a baby changes everything” should have an addendum that says “Being pregnant changes everything.” Hope you have a good week and Mr H has a good birthday!

    Sounds like the party was a FUN time…sorry you’re paying for it now! 😦Have a great week and happy bday to your DH!

    Re belly shots (sorry for responding here — I wasn’t sure if you’d see it if I responded in my own comments): I periodically check in on a September board on iVillage, and all the 20-week belly shots there were of women with perfectly rounded, obviously-pregnant bellies, which made me feel deficient, since I think I just look like I ate too much at Easter or something. I think you should definitely post yours 🙂

    Ok, I am OBSESSED with vanilla milkshakes. It is one of the only foods that consistently sounds good to me so I understand your love of chocolate malts. My nausea is pretty much gone but the prenatal vitamins seem to bring it on in small doses. Are you still taking those? They may be contributing to your sickness.I bet the smoke made you sick. I typically feel like that after being in a smoky place when I am NOT pregnant so I can imagine how much worse I would feel if I did it now.Congratulations on your little girl!! And I am so happy that everything is going well. I understand your continued nervousness, believe me.I bet your dancing rocked Q to sleep and then she woke up when you lied down to rest. That fits with what I have been reading.XOXO

    I’d take a baby-induced faux hangover over a real hangover any day!

  13. Leah replied:

    Sorry you felt so shitty the other day. The body gets all whacky while pregnant, so there’s seemingly no rhyme or reason why it chooses to make you feel wretched some times for what seems like no good reason.Thank you for stroking my ego with your comment. I hope you know I am the same way — I read every post but have been terrible about making the time to comment. Please remember that I’ve got you, your hubby and your little girl in my prayers every day!
