Missing: My Energy and My Mind. Would Happily Take Either One Back

Life is always a rich and steady time when you are waiting for something to happen or to hatch ~from EB White's book Charlotte's Web

Sleepy and queasy and tired and queasy and sleepy and my knees hurt and did I mention tired?  Chores are getting forgotten and I prefer to relax on the couch at night instead of doing anything else.  Oh,  did I mention I was tired???????

And I'm crying.  Over commercials, Biggest Loser and even the movie Evan Almighty.  Hubby has almost banned me from the TV.  I'm also craving BREAD, crackers, BREAD, pasta, and anything to do with carbs.  I'm trying to keep the carbs clean, but I miss last week's craving for spinach instead of bread!  Last week I was doing well with my workouts, this week, not so much.  We went for a walk over the weekend and I had a couple shooting pains in my abdomen so we shortened our walk and went home.  I felt better as soon as I sat down, but I'm 35, paranoid, pregnant and not taking any chances!

My energy is GONE.  It's a struggle right now to keep up with the kids.  I hope this passes soon.  I miss working out.  I did try a little workout this morning with hubby but made the mistake of doing it on an empty stomach.  Maybe tomorrow I'll try again after breakfast.  

But, the kids are asleep right now for their naps so I'm going to be soon too!  Would love to know how anyone else out there fought pregnancy fatigue!!!!

  1. Hey there.. thanks for stopping by my blog..
    I got pregnant for the first time at the age of 37..

    I was so worried about everything. me gaining weight, the baby, my age yadda yadda. At one point I just let all my fears go and tadda... I have my baby boy..
    I hope you have a great pregnancy and take care of your self..
    As far as Weight Watchers there is no program for pregnant gals.
    I think you should just eat good healthy food and have your treats as needed... After the baby comes then you can do WW, they do have special points etc for breast feeding mom's.
    Looking forward to following your blog...
