Can I Have Your Seat?

The nausea is getting real old, real fast. It won't let up. And I'm exhausted. The worst is often my subway rides each day. I wish I could wear a sign that proved to people I was pregnant so I could guilt them into giving me their seat.

The sign could say something like, "I'm in my first trimester and I will throw up on you if you don't let me sit down."

I feel like that might get people out of their seats. Because seriously, it takes everything I've got sometimes to stand on that swerving subway with the smells and my heavy bag, and not throw up.

Unfortunately, I don't think there's anything I can do about this. I've heard from pregnant friends that even when you're really showing many people don't give you their seats. So there's no way I'm going to get one when I don't even look like I need it. Such is life.
