Here I am, beginning WEEK 7 of pregnancy, and I already have some frustrations. Frustrations sounds unhappy, which I am not. I am just, well, responding to the changes of my first baby. :)
First of all, NOTHING tastes good! It's like my taste buds have stopped working, and no matter what I eat, I am never satisfied. Believe me, I am hungry (still not nauseous, thank God), but everything I eat is just, blah. I have even stopped drinking my morning cup of coffee, and I don't even miss it!
Secondly, I have never, ever been so lazy in my life! Seriously, I have spent my winter vacation watching more TV then I have ever consumed in my life. Usually my breaks from school are spent reorganizing, painting, cleaning like mad, etc. But not this time! I'm sleeping about 9 hours a night, minus pee breaks and periods of insomnia. The minute I wake up I head to the couch, and then spend countless hours lying there, feeling like a slob. ANNOYING! I know my body is working super hard to create my perfect little angel-baby, but I just want to be me again! (I think the hubster is starting to wonder who this new person is that looks like his wife, but is way too boring to be the real deal).
I'm also constantly worried about my weight. I've always felt a little chubby, and now I am so worried I am going to turn into a fat monster, get yelled at by my doctor, and never be the same me again! It's not like I'm over-eating (remember, nothing tastes good), but not doing anything is really making me feel lazy and bloated. I wish there wasn't a billion inches of snow everywhere to keep me from walking- I love walking and I think it would help with the fatigue... Perhaps I will have to get over myself, strap on my boots, and take winter walks. I cannot begin to force myself down the stairs to get on the elliptical trainer. NO WAY JOSE
I would not give this pregnancy up for anything in the world, however, I would like a smidgen of energy, especially considering that tomorrow school starts up again!
