I have two kids - a girl and a boy - and live in north-central Minnesota, land of snow and ice. Well, for 9 months of the year, that is. I work full-time for a local government, and on my "free time" I enjoy cooking, baking, hanging out with my kiddos, and RELAXING.

not a fun morning

My birth control made me sick this morning.

I've been on this stuff for forever and a day and then all of a sudden the past couple months it's been making me feel nauseous some mornings. What the heck is up with that?

At least I know I don't have some random disease. I was telling my friend about how I was feeling kind of sick in the mornings and had no idea why, and she oh-so-wisely suggested it may be my birth control. (Thanks, Krista!) I had been getting a little worried about it, but crisis averted.

However, not cool to be puking from the birth control pills. Especially after drinking a big glass of juice. Pink juice.

Fortunately it didn't keep me from going to work. I want that comp time, and I want it bad. (If anyone was worried about me going to work after I threw up, I was 99.99% sure it was only from the pill and that I did not have any sort of weird sickness. So no harm done, mmkay?)

So I know I should go see my gynecologist and tell her to write me a new prescription, but I don't have time. Nor do I want to pay my co-pay. So probably I'll just deal with it and whine and moan to ya'll.

Good plan.


  1. Maybe it's a sign that you should get off the birth control and start a new kind of morning sickness... mwahaha!!!

  2. my advice get an IUD! Birthcontrol made me sick too. And that is how we ended up with little leah :) .. on second thought you would make a great mom .. then u only are sick for 3 months if ur lucky..

  3. It would be worth it for a little Leah! :) But no plans for that any time soon. Definitely hoping I don't suffer like the two of you did/do. :)
