Rough day over here. I woke up with a crazy headache. Drinking lots of water didn't help. I went for a quick run, which usually clears things out, and oddly I felt completely overwhelmed and even worse feeling (physically and mentally) after. I almost cried on the phone with my sister for no reason and now have just been lying around in bed. I feel so gross. What makes it even worse is this huge project I'm supposed to be working on, but I don't even have the ability to look at anything, let alone think about it. Ugh. My plan (such as it is) is to just rest and do nothing and hope things pick up at the end of the first trimester. If they don't, I'm in serious trouble. I just don't know what to do about it.
And Demeter, so sorry you're having a rough time. My husband and I were actively trying for a baby and I still have days when I'm overwhelmed with our dogs and work and everything else where I wonder if this was a good idea. It's a really scary experience (at least for me), since you can feel like everything, including your own body, is totally out of your control. I hope things get better soon!
