I mentioned before how I suffered from “morning” sickness throughout all of my pregnancies. With Irelyn the morning sickness only started to subside once I hit my third trimester, and with Chloe and Grayson it started to let up in the second and from what my (somewhat lacking) memory is able to recall it was gone by the third trimester with my little blondies. The fact that they are (dirty) blondes and Irelyn is a redhead plays a significant part in my theory.
See, Baby F still gets to enjoy the sound of mommy vomiting throughout the day. It’s not bad enough for me to need medication, as I am able to keep some foods down, but it’s bad enough to make me miserable. And because I’m still enjoying the wonderful part of pregnancy that is morning sickness, and I don’t think it will dissipate for another couple of months, I believe that Baby F is or will be a redhead. Makes sense, right? Since my only other kid that kept me sick this long was a redhead then this one should be a ginger too.
Wait, there is more.
Did you know that redheads are mutants? I’m not kidding. Red hair makes its appearance when there is a mutation of the MC1R gene. Sure, I found most of my info on Wikipedia (A.K.A. the most reliable source in the world <—saracasm) but it’s still interesting and I found a few other sources on it too. Just Google “redhead mutation” and look for yourself. Do it. But maybe don’t look at the images section of your search – it might be scary.
Right, so the rest of my theory: if redheads are some sort of X-Men and we have this mutated gene, my theory is that the growing child, with their mutation, is specifically what causes my prolonged morning sickness. Bam! And if he’s not a redhead he better be some sort of shape shifter or something.
I can only imagine the morning sickness that Mystique’s mother went through.
