Zelda the Ocarina of Time & Morning Sickness

When I was pregnant with Tyler I had really bad morning sickness. The only thing I could do to stop the room from spinning and keep myself from puking nonstop, was to sleep. The beginning of my pregnancy was in the summer. We were living in a 1 bedroom apartment on Lake Street (2100 S & 740 E) in Sugarhouse at the time. The apartment building was all brick and it would get VERY hot. I would lay on the couch a few feet away from our crappy, in the wall air conditioner. It was kind of like a campfire. You only really felt the cold if you sat just a couple of feet in front of it. The components inside would also freeze if you ran it for too long. Anyway, I would sleep and to alleviate boredom, Ryan would play Zelda the Ocarina of Time. This went on for about 3-4 months and to this very day I can't see, hear or think about that game without feeling sick. Tyler and Cameron will decide to play it every once in a while and I practically can't even be in the same room. In fact, I prefer to be upstairs in my room with earplugs in so I can't even hear it while it's happening. Tonight I was waiting to put them in bed so that Ryan could help Tyler through a part he was having some difficulty with. I could hardly watch and had to resist the urge to cover my face and plug my ears. Blech. Just writing about it now makes me want to puke.
