On those bad days, I do a few things to help me cope with the sickness. Some of them are probably common sense, and some may be TMI, but in any case, here they are:
- Pull back my hair. I don't want to worry about hair dangling in my face when I'm getting sick. Pulling it roughly up into a clippie helps a lot.
- Dampen a washcloth to have at the ready - if I have time.
- Have an empty bladder - again, if I have time. Because pregnant lady + full bladder + violent vomiting = could get messy. Ew.
- Use a trash can/bucket/whatever, not the toilet. Curling up on our freezing cold bathroom floor & caressing our questionable toilet is not fun. It's so much nicer & more comfortable to sit on the toilet or on the edge of the bed & use a trash can.
