I'm Back!

We got back super late last night from our fun filled vacation. We spent the first few days hanging out in Long Beach, CA before boarding the cruise ship on Sunday. I was a little nervous about cruising pregnant and let's just say, we probably won't be cruising while I'm pregnant again - if we can help it. I had a great time, we all did. I just felt really sick half the time and couldn't do much. C says I'm not really fun anyway, but I was especially not fun on this trip. The days we spend in Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan, and Puerto Vallarta were a blast. We spent some time on the beach, C went parasailing, I ate a Mexican Popsicle... overall - it was fun. The days on the ship, however, were not quite as fun.

I will hopefully get some pictures uploaded here in the next day or so and you can see our fun filled adventure vacation. But first let me tell you a story... a very embarrassing one. And I'm only doing this because I don't normally get embarrassed, but this day will be one I'll never forget.

It's Saturday night, the last night of our cruise. The ship was really rocking and rolling so I went to bed while the others we were with went to a comedy show. I was lying in my bed thinking, "I am going to throw up, it's just a matter of time." Within a few minutes, I was on the bathroom floor with my face in the toilet throwing up everything I had eaten for the past 7 days (so it felt). But the worst part is that I have lost a lot of control in my stomach muscles from being pregnant and the pressure on my bladder from throwing up caused me to need to go to the bathroom. But I couldn't stop throwing up, so there I am crouched down throwing up and peeing my pants at the same time. There was nothing I could do, I couldn't hold it in... nothing. Talk about humiliating. At 27 years old, I still wet my pants.

Karen---bummer deal that you were so sick. I recall that you also threw up on the plane heading out to the mission. You and motion sickness just don't mesh, especially when you are prego! Any how, can't wait to see the pics. Also, call me and fill me in on the wonderous trip details!!

sorry you were sick on your vacation! I remember my mom telling me she got sick on a mexico cruise, because the boat rocked so much. hey, at least no one saw the throwing up/peeing incident! I hope you feel better soon and have a non-queasy 2nd trimester.
