Ugh. I am not sure if I had a virus or just hit some weird phase but started vomitting last weekend and then have felt sooooo exhausted this week. My husband begged and begged for me to go skiing with him on Sunday. I kept telling him I was too tired and I didnt think I could do it but he kept pleading as his two friends were going too, and they like to go faster than him so he wanted the excuse of being able to hang back with me. Well, I had been puking the day before, could barely keep water down, had not left the house in day, but Im a pushover so I went. I convinced myself that I would feel better if I get out. Big difference between going out for a walk, and throwing yourself down a snowy hill. Well, when we got up there (about 40 minutes from our house to slopes) it was raining. Most of the terrain was shut down because of lack of snow, but didnt know it until i got to the top. The easy slope was closed due to the ground protruding through so I had to go down the moderate slope, which was basically mud snow. Not actually muddy, but felt like mud because of the rain it was all slushy. Well, I cursed my husband the WHOLE ENTIRE way down. He told me the wrong thing... "you just did this a few weeks ago and you were fine. Stop being a wimp." I screamed back "Im not a wimp! Im pregnant!" Men just dont understand. He thinks Im just taking this as an excuse to be lazy (Im sooo not a lazy person!). I grumped away and told him I was going to go sleep in the car. And I did.
So that was Sunday, then on Monday I had my second prenatal appt with a new kaiser midwife... well. It didnt go well. She was retiring in a few months (apparently, no one thought it was important to tell me that when scheduling) and you could tell she was over her job. She kept trying to answer any questions quickly and dart out the door. I did get hear the babies heartbeat and husband freaked again because he thought I caused something wrong with it because it had a rapid heartbeat. Then husband decided that we would do genetic testing, even though I had already decided against it. It took a while for the midwife to convince him the fast heartbeat was fine but then she added later in pregnancy if it stays that high there will be a problem, so he started worrying about if it doesnt drop!
Im feeling totally wiped out this week. Like my legs are made of mud. It seems like Im not the only one but it still feels like there is something wrong. I CANT think straight, and I ache everywhere. I just want to feel like me for a day! I have a fun weekend planned for this weekend. Tomorrow we are going to the HUGE annual garden show and saturday going to the horse expo! Both happened to be the same weekend. Im just hoping I can get through both days and actually be able to enjoy myself.
3 days till im out of my first trimester! I know nothing magical will happen, but there is hope that maybe things will improve :)
