If you’ve ever been pregnant while also holding down a job, there’s a good chance you may have barfed at work.
That relentless morning sickness (LOL “morning”) doesn’t care where you are or what you’re supposed to be doing — if the smell of your colleague’s coffee sets you off in the middle of that board meeting, you’re going to find yourself sprinting to the nearest bathroom/garbage can/purse.
Now, imagine your job is to report the news on live television, and behold this moment of ugh.
As mentioned on @Morning_Joe today, here’s the time Baby Girl Ainsley made herself known to the world by causing a little morning sickness on national television. Coming January 2020! pic.twitter.com/CfVIuifE2W— Julia E. Ainsley (@JuliaEAinsley) September 10, 2019
Julia Ainsley is an NBC News Correspondent who covers justice and homeland security. She’s also — as was accidentally revealed on live national TV a few months ago — pregnant.
“Here’s the time Baby Girl Ainsley made herself known to the world by causing a little morning sickness on national television. Coming January 2020!,” Ainsley tweeted Tuesday morning, along with a video of her taking deep breaths, gagging, and waving the camera away.
Oh, Julia. We’ve all been there. Just not so ... publicly.
“I ran down there, and in the middle of coverage I got pretty sick and had to run down the street and got sick in the bushes outside the justice department,” Ainsley recalled on the morning show.
