Poo = Puke
I just helped Max on to the potty and I almost puke.
Yes, this is one of the other signs of my pregnancies. Hyper sensitive nose that makes a lot of smell = stench which is beyond me.
When I was pregnant with Micah I puked only twice, which was really good. One was because of some oily noodle breakfast which I couldn't stomach, so threw them all up after breakfast. The second time...? Now I can't remember.
When I was pregnant with Max I puked so much that I lost count. It was not so much the morning sickness, but the external factors of a toddler around. Micah's porridge, especially fish, and his poo were the main triggers of my puking.
There was one time we went down with Mike to Singapore and stayed in the hotel. Usually Micah will do his business early morning and Daddy will have him cleaned up before he goes off to work. There was one morning when it happened after daddy had left. I wretched. It was before breakfast, so it was all green slime, gastric juice, that came out. That was probably the worst vomiting experience I ever had.
Now I will have to hold my breath when washing Max after a potty session and may have to get another adult to help wash the potty. Micah is only too keen to do that, but I'm not letting him do it. I'm not risking having to wash 2 poo-smelling boys and the whole bathroom too. I may have to wash my own puke in the midst of the mess too.
