Just to Prove that I'm Not Making this Stuff Up...
A few posts ago, I mentioned that in order to help myself cope with my all-day morning sickness, I was letting my daughter watch a lot of videos, specifically, The Wiggles. I sort-of joked about how pairing nausea with Wiggles so many times had caused my nausea to actually be brought on by Wiggles music, independent of being pregnant. Then I moved on. Roughly two weeks ago, I stopped feeling sick all the time. I started eating semi-normally, and stopped puking. This morning was no exception. I woke up feeling well, tended to my dogs, and then my daughter. While I was changing her diaper, she started singing a song from a Wiggles video that we haven't played in a while. To give her a treat, I decided to play that video to her while she had her breakfast. I read the song list on the DVD case to see where her specific song was, and then I had a minor heave. This made me laugh, as I thought about my assertion that The Wiggles make me ill. I stopped laughing after pushing the play-button, when upon hearing just a few notes, I heaved again. Hmmmm, I thought. This isn't good. There was another heave, so I headed to the washroom, where I proceeded to spew my guts out. Sorry if I created any sort of visual here. Anyhow, I think that my theory has been proven to be true, and that if the stimulus is appropriate, I can, in fact, be trained like a Pavlovian dog. As a funny aside, before I even completed my business in the washroom, I was already formulating this post, and was somewhat happy that I had something to blog about today. This would be a different type of sickness, I suppose.
