Well well, the pregnancy continues… Obviously, and I’m glad, but uuugghhh. I read that weeks 9-12 are the worst of the pregnancy and so far, right on! I worked on Thursday from 7a-3p and vomited for my first (and only so far!) time at work. I felt absolutely horrible, so Jon brought some ginger chews to work. They helped a little bit, but nothing magical. Enough to help me get by for the day though. Friday was a 12 hour shift and a bit better than Thursday, thankfully! I wasn’t anywhere near as nauseous as I was on Thursday!
Friday night, I went over to visit my friend Jim. I hadn’t seen him in almost two years, actually. It was great to catch up with him and we shared all the happenings in our lives and I stayed out till 11pm! Getting crazy!
Saturday was another tough morning, but Jon and I headed out to a little farmer’s market and walked around. Then we went to look at open houses for fun and we fell in love with a house! For $350,000, so we won’t be buying that house! Or any house for the next year or so, for that matter! But I am excited to buy a house eventually and really enjoy looking at the open houses!
I was so tired on Saturday afternoon, so when Jon left to hang out with his friend, I crashed on the couch for 2 hours and then spent my evening watching TV and going for a walk.
Sunday I worked 7a-3p, came home, napped, and went to my parent’s house for dinner. I went crazy and ate potatoes, broccoli, and chicken, and then I paid dearly and felt like death last night. I took Benadryl in hopes of helping, which I guess worked cause I crashed last night. Also, I dream of the day that I can sleep laying flat again. I get too nauseated when I lay flat, so I have to sleep propped up on a bunch of pillows!
Today was my first day of orientation at the new job! Thankfully I felt perfectly fine this morning! Hallelujah! Exhausted, but no nausea! We had a lunch with leadership, which I ate all of (chicken, potatoes, and green beans) and thankfully that was the end of our day, because the nausea kicked in after that and I felt completely horrible. So there went running any errands (I need my oil changed and I need to sign the papers for my life insurance).
I came home and napped for two hours instead of being productive. I woke up from my nap feeling miserable, so today makes the 5th day in a row of skipping the gym. I’m really hoping to make it tomorrow, but I have orientation from 7:30-3:30 and then have to go to my new floor for a meeting. I never feel that good in the afternoons, so I have a feeling it’ll be another rough afternoon. And my body is just literally so drained still. My body still feels like it weighs 1,000lbs and the thought of even lifting a weight or doing a pushup seems nearly impossible. But I’m really missing being active!
And now you can all see why I haven’t been blogging! My life consists of sleeping, feeling nauseous, skipping the gym, and sitting on the couch. I am trying to vary my diet a little more and my food aversions are oddly not as strong this week, but definitely still present. And then I almost always feel sick after eating. And my house is a disaster because I put almost no energy into picking up the house anymore, and Jon somehow hurt his ankle so I feel bad making him stand up to unload the dishwasher or pick stuff up!
Ah, life. These are some fun times. Not. But we’re now one week away from our first appointment, so hopefully that’ll make this all feel worth it!
