You know you’re obsessed with pregnancy when even morning sickness sounds good to you. But does it really? I bet any pregnant woman would tell you otherwise. Excessive vomiting, non-stop diarrhea, nausea, laying on the bathroom floor begging for saltine crackers – I can see why you would be envious. It sounds absolutely fantastic!

To any woman trying to conceive, the mere thought of any pregnancy symptoms makes us happy, even morning sickness. When you feel nauseated, you get excited thinking you might be pregnant. You throw up from last nights Chinese food, you happily rush to take your basal temperature. You couldn’t be more overjoyed! Yes. We live in a delusional world and I’m sure that when morning sickness actually occurs, you will not feel as overjoyed. You once got ill after eating your lunch which was completely unlike you. You rarely barf. You were convinced that you were pregnant but it also could have been from the undercooked meat. When your period arrived the next day, you convinced yourself that you miscarried.

So ask yourself, would you really give anything to have morning sickness right now? I bet when you get the flu or food poisoning, no one is envious of you! You would really do anything to be a mother and if you are envious of the dreaded morning sickness, you absolutely deserve to be a mama right now.

    that is hilarious…and so true. even when you do have morning sickness and you hate it- you secretly hope it doesnt go away for at least a month so that you dont miscarry.

    We've been trying for two years, and keep putting off seeing a specialist. But for the last two months, I have been secretly wishing this aloud. "I would happily suffer from nine months of morning sickness if I was pregnant now," I tell my closest friends.

    This is so funny! I am envious of morning sickness…and my precious best friend DIDN’T complain NOT 1 time during her first trimester in front of me! SHE would throw up 5 or more times A DAY! And I was envious of her, but so THANKFUL that she was kind enough to say “it’s worth it!”

    “Oh dear, I feel a little nauseous. It must be morning sickness. I’m pregnant.” < That is how I react when I feel the TEENIEST bit sick at my stomach.

    I want to be fat. I want my pants to not fit. I want to barf every morning. I want to crave pickle flavored ice cream. I want my feet to swell up and get flat. I want to scream and pummel my husband during labor.
    And I used to use birth control?!?!?!!? Am I insane??? Nope… just TTC…..
