FML - The follow-up

Today, my morning sickness decided to show itself every time I smell coffee. I work at a coffee shop. FML

GothicAngel17 Say more :
Seems like the best solution so far. I think I might actually try that when everything opens again.

I've bean there. A latte times I just wanted to go home. I could tell there was some nastiness brewing inside me. Remember, if you are feeling sick and need to go home, talk to your manager and espresso self.

I think coffee smells like farts sometimes.

OP If you want some help trying to prevent morning sickness, this is what I was taught. Try setting an alarm for about 2 or 3am and go pee. I know it will suck, but there's horomones in a woman's urine when pregnant that can cause morning sickness and it builds up at night since you aren't using the bathroom for 8-10 hours.

117- maternity leave is for when you have the baby, sometimes a few weeks before depending on if you're on bed rest. Otherwise employers do not have to give you time off to get over the morning sickness. For a lot of women, it lasts through the entire pregnancy anyway.

OP, I took something called Preggie Pops for my morning sickness. If you live in the states Motherhood or Babies R Us sells them. Otherwise your doctor may be able to prescribe something for you. I work at a tea shop and we have a pretzel kiosk right outside our store that makes one of my pregnant employees sick. She got a prescription and is doing much better. Hope it passes soon!

Yea good idea. It's not weird at all to receive your morning coffee from someone who looks like they are standing at the quarantine section of a hospital.

Tell them you just got back from Japan and old habits die hard (I'm actually not insulting anyone, it's a common suggestion of doctors for you wear a surgical mask when biking [to work] in Japan, I'm not sure about walking around however...)

I agree with this… I mean, if you're constantly vomiting/feeling sick on the job then it must be obvious to your manager that you shouldn't be at work… unless this has been happening for a while. In that case, good luck… FYL. (By the way, I accidentally hit YDI, but I definitely don't think you deserve it.)


Bizarre_ftw you need to learn how to keep your mouth shut. You hav been stalking gothic angle and making all her comments look bad. Grow up


Hahhaha, I love how I am 13 and trying to help someone, and you are a tattooed 17 year old who I do not fear, trying to put me and others like gothic angel down. I did not literally mean grow up, I meant I would like if we both could just stop fighting ( although what does grow up hav to do with any of what I just said lol :) ) Please can we stop fighting? Ps: I don't care how many negative thumbs I get I'm trying to apologize.

Apology accepted, I'm never one to enjoy a feud (now a debate, that's a different story....) However I'd like to set two things straight One: you say I'm trying to put you and the op down, when in fact I'm not trying anything of the sort (okay, the laughing at you was not Kind, but I found the juxtaposition of our ages and your comment extremely entertaining, however I'll apologize to you for that) I think the op is a perfectly kind woman with an honest problem, however I do not know how to fix it, therefore I'm simply commenting to the topics directly at hand.

Two: You refer to me being tattooed as a bad thing, I have one that was drawn by a very close friend of my mother's who sadly committed suicide, she was an Amazing artist with an inspiring view of the world, and I can tell all this from her art, I am not religious yet the drawing is shaped like a wing and I have it on one shoulder as a symbol that you will always live on through your art/what you gave the world. The other one is a little j on my ankle, it's there because my cousin lost her baby at 6 months, he was born alive and lived maybe three hours, his name was Jesse and I got the first letter of his first name on my ankle (and I will do this with others who are important to me) so I can carry what little there is left of them with me (the other is a doodle I did that I love and makes me happy that's tiny and lovely) Can you tell me what's wrong with this^?
