A Giveaway like no Other!!!

As many of you are aware, we are expecting baby number 5, and I have been suffering from morning sickness far worse than I can remember with any of my other children, and I was sick with Ashie(for the entire nine months)!
Being so sick this time around, and out of morbid curiosity I decided to keep track of how many timed I threw-up. The kids caught on and thought this was the best idea ever!! We have kept precise track, carefully recording each time with a mark on the calendar and(drum roll please)........this weekend I reached the Monumental Milestone of 100 BARFS!!!

My equally as "crazy" friend Xazmin(who frequently asks how many barfs I'm up to) suggested I have a "100th BARF Giveaway". So here it is!!

What will be in your adorable barf bag(unused), and decorated by me? Well it's a surprise of course...I do promise it won't be my barf though, or anyone else's. It will be filled with lots of fun stuff. So....how can you enter this giveaway like no other?

1 entry...leave me a comment
1 entry...for following
3 entries for posting about my giveaway, and sharing in your post your most embarrassing barf experience!!(be sure to come back and let me know)
This is soooo gross! I love it!!!
The giveaway ends Monday June 22 at midnight.

Shawn said...

OK I have walking in your shoes and have one question. How do you still find the energy for this kind of stuff?!!? We should be sending you things not the other way around!

But just because I do have a story or two or twelve I will post about ti later tomorrow. By the way does it have to be about me and being pregant?

Take care!

Shawn said...

Look at me...

I have WALKED in your shoes...

I will post about IT later...

Does it have to be about me BEING PREGNANT?

I guess I had a bad case of placenta brain, what can I say!

Amber said...

You are right--this is a give away like no other I have heard before. I am so sorry you are so sick though. My goodness. Are you getting any medicine for it? My friend was just put on the meds they give chemo patients and that has been helping her. I hope you get relief soon.

Jan the crazy lady said...

You poor thing. I did the same thing with my 3rd child. I had the older kids put plastic shopping bags one on top of the other in an huge ice cream tub. I barfed all day and they would remove the garbage bags all day long. Oh it's the worst.

I hope your "morning" sickness goes away soon.

When life hands you lemons... have a give-away! I love it! Can't wait to tell the world about my most embarrassing vomit story! I feel your pain -- I threw up every day for the first 26 weeks when Cella was born. Hang in there! Thanks for having a little fun with this!

Becky said...

That is so funny that your kids are counting your pukes. At least somebody is having fun with it! lOl!

Jenna said...

NOW THIS IS SWEET! I just had my first baby and threw up 250 times in the first 2 montsh - a grand total of 343 times in the 9 months. Go barfing moms!

Heather Reed said...

What a GREAT idea! I have had EXTREME morning sickness 7 times and never thought to count how many times I hurled or even thought of others while I was doing it! So good for you =)

Alicia said...

100 barfs in one weekend?! Tanielle! That. Is. MISERABLE! Can I send YOU a little gift bag. Holy smokes, woman. I have a whole 'nother level of admiration for you - AND YOU'RE STILL BLOGGING. Wow. Anyhow, Throw me in the mix!

Hope you feel better SOON.

Cadance said...

100 times!!! WOW! that is NO fun at all! Poor you!! I know I had some sick days...but I don't think I ever threw-up 100 times when I was pregnant....but sometimes time helps you forget all those horrible days....or else how would we be able to become pregnant again!?!? LOL!
I hope you are able to keep your food down soon!

ModernMom said...

Oh my gosh you are so so funny. Talk about making the best of a yuck situation!
I just have to become your newest follower. Not because of the giveaway but because you made me laugh out loud with both this post and your confessions!!
Feel better!

Sare said...

Oh my sake!!! You poor thing!! but how stinkin cute are you to do a giveaway to celebrate something so icky?!! I'm sorry you are so sick!!! I so wish I could do something to help!! I'm just catching up today, and i have to say - your confessions are AWESOME!!!! I think I might do that on my blog - cause it's funny!!

The Booth Family said...

I found you through Sara and I love the idea! I am 3 months pregnant too so I know how you feel. I am starting to feel better and hopefully by some miracle you start to too. I did all completed all three entries so good luck to me :)

Amy said...

I was the same way also. I will try and post something soon. I will let you know when.

Amy said...

I am happy to say I follow you.

Small House said...

OH GOOD GRIEF....YOU ARE STILL SICK???? I think I've said this before, there is nothing worse than pregnant sick. I sure hope this ends for you soon.

I'll post about your giveaway. I just love your blog. not sure if I'm a follower because with dial-up it takes FOREVER to become a follower. I would think I was because I LOVE YOUR BLOG, but I put you on my side bar.

Get some rest.
Sandra

Ashley said...

I love it!!! Way to embrace the pleasantness of pregnancy...you go girl!!!

Bonnie B. said...

Woohoo! I am now a follower of the blog with the best giveaway ever!!

Claire said...

My stomach hurts for you!! I can't believe you've barfed 100 times! (More I'd assume by this point!) I'm pregnant with our second and have been much more prone to puking this time around than last. It stinks. Anyway, fun giveaway! I hope I win!

Oh, and I'm a follower.

Momza said...

Okay so I'm following. But I DO NOT want you to do one stinkin thing for me...because I'm a doula training to be a Midwife, and sister, you don't need to be waiting on others. Grab the remote, put your feet up and REST.
So yeah, pick me...so you can rest.
Sending good thoughts your way.~Momza

tammy dixon said...

This is very creative!, but I wouldn't expect anything else from you. You are an amazing person!

Rhonda said...

You are such a sweetie. Only you would be willing to make something for someone else while you are barfing over and over!

I hope by now it is getting less and less often. I hate when I would continue and throw up bile...so gross!

Your kiddos are beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing...glad everyone is back home for you!
Glad baby's heart rate is strong.

Take care!

Rhonda said...

Of course I'm a long time follower! You are beautiful! ;o)
