I had my first bout of nausea last night. A new Culver's recently opened just minutes from our house, and a friend of mine had been raving about their "cheese curds." Thinking about how much I love cheese, I decided I would get them and see what all the fuss was about.
As it turned out, Culver's cheese curds are breaded and deep-fried. (I guess I thought they'd just be giving me some lumps of cheese.) Normally I have no problem eating fried cheese, but after a few cheese curds, I was feeling decidedly nauseated and had to throw the rest away.
This feeling continued as I fed our dogs. Normally the smell of their food doesn't affect me at all--it's dry food, so it's not very strong-smelling--but last night it struck me as really gross and sent another wave of nausea through me as I was scooping it out. Ick.
Apart from the usual times one might get nauseated--stomach virus, food poisoning, hangovers, migraines--I normally don't get nausea. (I worked in hospitals as a nurse for seven years, and if that won't get you past having your stomach turned by nasty smells, nothing will.) So this was unusual for me.
I felt a little nauseous this morning, too, but after I ate an energy bar, it subsided. I feel fine right now.
I am only 4 weeks, 1 day pregnant today. Isn't that a little early for morning sickness?
