I apparently am not going to be one of those beautiful pregnant woman that only gains a little bit of weight. I am going to be a whale. Case in point:
I believe that I'm only 9 weeks along in this picture. If I'm already feelin' fat at 9 weeks, I can't imagine how big I'm going to be at the end of this deal. I'm not sure if it's because I already started out overweight, or if it's just in my genes to be a fat pregnant woman. I know there's nothing I can do about it now, so this will be my one and only complaining post.
It also seems the farther along I get, the more sick I am. Still not throwing up, just nauseous ALL. THE. TIME. I pretty much hate it. I so wish that I could throw up and just get it out of my system. But noo.. I have to constantly feel like I want to throw up and then never follow through. Grr.. This morning was awful. I learned early on that if I eat right when I get up I'm not as sick throughout the day. I woke up super nauseous and nothing I did made me feel better. I got so sick in the shower that I finally just gave up, resulting in only 1/2 of one leg shaved. I tried to lay down for a few minutes and what do you know? I immediately felt better. Today was one of those days I wish I could just lay down and sleep all day. Alas, I only had a few minutes then I had to get up and finish getting ready. Thank goodness for a job where I sit in one spot and don't have to move all day. I would be in serious trouble if I had a more active job.
The last thing I want to complain about is my lack of energy. I am so exhausted all the time. I go to bed anywhere between 9:30 and 10 and struggle to function everyday. I feel like a zombie.
I've had several people tell me to just enjoy the journey. I'm not quite sure how I can enjoy the journey when I feel crummy all the time. Any suggestions? Thank goodness I only have a few weeks left in this first trimester. Then hopefully I can be semi back to normal again!
All right, I'm done. I would like to say that I'm happy no matter how I'm feeling, but when I don't feel good I get kinda grumpy.
Ooh.. I just got a whiff of something that smelled like fries. Those sound good! Wonder if the stomach will agree....
