One word that describes your life right now..

Thread Starter 
Mine would be chaos. Laundry is out of control, house is dirty, nothing seems to be getting done. Anyone elses house really messy. My son has worn the same pants 3 days in a row : I keep telling myself 4 more weeks and I should feel better.

When I first saw your title, my immediate response was "surreal". I can't believe I am pregnant again and I have SO much to do. I did quit my job last week..but I am still head homeroom parent, head of the playground committee, was asked to help with a police wives auxillery, and am doing a home party business that is keeping me busy now that it is the holiday season!

Maybe "overwhelmed" would be a better word....

pukey

Seriously, the m/s is getting old and I am only 6weeks pregnant!! It didn't start until 8 weeks last time & was no where near as bad!

But I think I have figured out a system that works - I stick with gatorade, gingerale, and crackers from the time I get up until around 3 pm (when the nausea settles down) and then have a snack at 3, dinner around 6, and another snack before bed. So, it's not ideal, but at least I have stopped losing weight and am staying hydrated!!

surreal, frightening, vulnerable to be honest with you. After having a m/c at 10 weeks this past spring, I feel very vulnerable these days. Other than this, I'm doing ok.

Overwhelmed.
I run my own business, i only work part time, but still have a lot to do. I don't have the energy to care about patients and what they are going through. I haven't cleaned my house in what seems like forever, thankfully my husband does most of it. he's a lifesaver!
I'm finally to the 'tired all the time' stage. I just don't want to do anything... I don't even want to knit!
My eczema has flared up, and i'm red and itchy all over. it's gonna be a long winter if it's hormonal.
the nausea came back with a vengance... lots of gagging over the sink for me (never vomit - only once).

So... overwhelmed. I'm still so shocked and happy that we're finally pregnant. Part of me still doesn't believe it.

Could have been me talking but I got a burst of energy and got every bit of laundry done.
Semi chaos is us.

hungry? i feel like i am snacking constantly.

other than that, exhausted.... i just started a new job in which everything is chaotic--i have 160 emails all requiring action that i have gotten and i have been here for a week and a half. the house is a disaster as i have been getting home late, eat, spend time with my son and go to bed. and the weekends, yeah, no housework going on there.... i just took down a serious cobweb yesterday that i have no idea when it appeared. i'm not the best duster and i have high ceilings.....

but on a positive note, i think i may finally be figuring out what i want in life. the baby is making me think of getting everything in order, you know?

overwhelming, I guess. We're closing on a place in a few weeks, so I have packing for a move looming, plus some decorating/construction plans for the new space. I've landed several good consulting jobs (I work for myself), but they are all very tightly scheduled in the same timeframe. I started having some nausea last week, and on the worst day, I ended up crying to my husband and saying "I don't know how people do this, I don't want a baby anymore!" Luckily the nausea subsided, and I'm hoping it stays away! My emotions are just all over the place, and I feel ambivalent about even having a kid.

helen, i moved while pregnant with ds, it is not fun. i was just starting to show and no one would let me lift or carry anything but all this stuff needed to get done... hang in there.

Helen, Ambivalence is a common feeling, I've read. I haven't felt that way, but then again, infertility changes the way you feel about a lot of things. No matter what you feel now, I'm sure it will change when the symptoms subside.

I think my word would be tired. Mentally, emotionally, physically....tired. I have the energy to do things half the time but then not the will to get started. I have a million projects looming over my head and Im too overwhelmed to do them. Instead I sit and vegg on the computer....ahhh I should go to bed!

Tired ... very tired. Yesterday I kept telling ds#1 (4 y.o.) that he has to let mommy sleep. :LOL We were gone a bunch during the day yesterday and then again all night last night and I was so done for the day.

overwhelmed would be my word too.

The nausea, utter exhaustion, we are selling our house-closing in one week and the amount to get done-ughh.

Plus there is all of the halloween stuff for ds1 and ds2.

We are moving to a new state in the middle of dec-when am I even going to think of getting the Christmas stuff done.

I just want to crawl under the covers and hide.

Christmas? ha!! I laugh at Christmas!! our family has a rule that you have to make all the gifts. I think this year, I'll be making a gift certificate to somewhere else. And besides... I'm making them a cousin/nieceor nephew/grandchild... that's enough making for me.

My life right now? Big. I feel huge (that can't be my fundus already?!) and beginning to think my charts and cycles were so off that I'm a month further along than I am (no, really, not possible... negative tests and all that the last month and then really faint one just when it should have been for this babe...)

Then my kids are just huge. I just grow 'em big, I guess, but they both look huge to me... Good thing I'm makin' another little one. LOL

And my DH has really big shoulders. He's doing pretty much everything that needs to get done around the house, with the kids and pretty much all the business stuff too.

So, yeah, big. Lots of big-ness.

I actually can use the word *WOO HOO* on how I am doing & feeling .
I've been a little grumpy & made myself get more sleep & I feel great with sleep My house is liveable, my clothes clean & my son is happy knowing that he will have a new baby brother or sister when he turns 5 1/2.
WOW! I hope I feel like this tomorrow
