This pregnancy, early as it is, is kicking my butt. I feel like Bella looked during most of the last Twilight movie. I would also liken it to when I had mono as a kid where I was in bed for 2 weeks straight. I have this debilitating fatigue. I am taking 2-3 hour naps during the day, and still feel like I could just sleep the whole day away. Also, I gagged on a piece of halibut the other night, and since then I have been constantly icky feeling. Needless to say, I don't think I'll have another piece of fish until after the baby is born. Oh, and the smell of broccoli made me queasy the same night of the fish incident. So, horrible as it is, I went to st.eak. and sh.ake and got a cheeseburger, fries, and milkshake. None of that is on the anti-inflammatory diet, but I guess that has to go out the window so I can get some kind of food down.
I could probably deal with the food issues if I just had energy. But, I don't even dare have any caffeine. No way. Not jeopardizing this pregnancy one bit.
So for now, I guess I will continue moving around in a daze and eating the junk food from my childhood. I feel awful feeling bad about the fatigue, knowing how much I have wanted this baby for so long, and how much we have sacrificed for this. And, I would not trade this pregnancy at all for feeling good. But, I am a wimp. As much as I like to think how strong I am, I am truly a big ol' wimp. Offering this all up for you, prayer buddy. :)
