I'm hoping that, at nearly 10w, I'm at the peak of my feeling bad stage. At least that's what I tell myself to get from this day to the next.
I do feel better than I have in previous pregnancies (maybe) in that I haven't thrown up but man oh man I do not feel well at all. I eat all.the.time. because it helps keep the nausea down (also, I figure it's really needed considering I'm gestating less than a year after birth & breastfeeding) but most of the time I have to force it and end up feeling sick anyway. When I go grocery shopping I end up picking up drinks, mostly drinks, and things that are easy to feed the kids. It's the grossest chore ever. The grocery store - what a disgusting place! I feel like in some past life I used to enjoy cooking for my family. These days I wish the dinner fairy would come around.
I'm so exhausted. All I want to do is sleep. I fall asleep everywhere. I don't want to go to the park or make important phone calls or do laundry or do anything but hibernate until this whole icky stage passes. I feel like such a bad mom! I'm moody and so irritable and blah. My DP is working constantly so we rarely see one another which is not all bad because I know I'm in a jerky mood and like PP wrote kissing often seems terrible. I feel agh! I'm being smothered in gross spit and this is a man who I'm wildly attracted to. I love him!
I really don't like to complain and I know I'm approaching the cusp of feeling better but my gosh, I feel miserable.
