So ya know how every day you want to say something on here but it's not big enough to start a new thread? Other DDCs have "weekly chat" threads. Wanna try it?

My casual info for the day: Dh is working from home today JUST because I'm so weak. Blood sugar's fine - go figure. Never felt such fatigue.

You?

I've been transferred to a new dept at work without any forewarning and want to leave this organization all together.

Today is my sorority's 100th anniversary and i'm supposed to have dinner with some of my sisters but I don't feel like going.

I hear you on being tired. DH has been doing all the cooking because by evening I have no desire to cook. Cleaning is a joke too!! I'm sure hoping this passes soon!

The spaghetti I craved so bad last night, didn't taste as good for lunch today. Maybe I should have eat a frozen meal.

I'm totally making me an appointment to a spa and getting a massage and facial.

This is really random but what the hell...

Top Gun is one of my favorite movies and it came on last night. I get so tickled when I think about this one part of the movie:

Meg: Goose, you big stud!
Goose: That's me, honey!
Meg: Take me to the bed or lose me forever!
Goose: Show me the way home, honey!



Considering the soundtrack was pretty darn awesome too, I love that movie. Ok, let me get back to work.

I ate TWO donuts last night. Talk about a sugar craving.

DH should be home in less than 2 hours, he's been gone 8 days. I haven't told him about the bleeding yet...

I can tell the bleeding is irritating my uterus, I'm crampy, but not bad, just enough to be noticeable and annoying, and I feel icky in general, like I have intestinal cramps too... yuck.

On a positive note, the midwife I've been trying to get hold of called me back, we can meet with her on Saturday at 2pm. But I am an idiot. I didn't even tell her about the bleeding. Talk about scatterbrained.

My kids are being goofs today. They're both wearing just diapers because they stripped their clothes off. They've been lounging around the house and jumping off of all the furniture. And it's fine with me. At least they're happy.

I kind of wish I'd either have m/s or feel fine. This all day nausea is going to be the death of me.

I have a friend with a 6 month old who just told me she might be pregnant. I should be excited for her, but she's not ready for a second baby yet. I don't know how her marriage would withstand it. For that reason, I hope she's not pg yet. She hopes she's not either.

That's what's on my mind today.

My DH left for Las Vegas this morning, he won't be back until after midnight Thursday night So I'm totally bumming about that. The kids miss him already and it isn't even time for him to come home from work yet. They have a sixth sense about him being gone!

I'm over it being ass-cold! WTH!

I'm over the winter, too. It would be nice if it would just warm up. We're not supposed to get to 32 for the next 10 days. . . .. . TEN DAYS of below freezing weather, even during the day. That's crap~!

One of my good friends is pregnant too (due in March) and after story time yesterday we took the kids to eat at Golden Corral. MMMMMMMM it was perfect. The best was this cake they make called Shadow Cake. It's calling my name today. I actually considered calling to see if they would sell me a cake - SAD!

On Friday, I went to the doc with a terribly sore, swollen throat and white spots all over my mouth/throat. The rapid test came back negative, but my doctor started treating me for strep, not wanting to risk that while pregnant. She said those tests are frequently inaccurate and it looked just like strep. I called Monday to get the results of the culture, and it was negative. Yay, I got to stop the antibiotics which made me feel sick - but I was taking them just long enough to give me a yeast infection. booooo!

I'm traveling for two days next week and then half of the month of February for my work. I'm really nervous about how I will do since I'm exhausted and nauseous 3/4 of the time.

On the upside I had lunch with a good friend today and her now 2 month old baby. She was a coworker who quit and I'm so glad we're still staying in touch.

We bought a new car yesterday night, TOTALLY ran the dealership. Not my style but don't ask don't tell is my moto when it comes to selling a car to a dealer. My hubbie is basically a mechanic on the side without the degree and he said that with used parts and him doing all the labor to get the car perfect we would need to put in $4K!! The dealer gave us $7400!!! Even after they were allowed to ask us questions (which we told the total truth to, they just asked the wrong questions), take it for a ride and look at in there shop. They must have CRAPPY mechanics! In the end we are only paying 9 dollars more per month for a 2006 Toyota Scion XA with only 3000 miles. I am in heaven!!!!

I'm sorry for your loss zonapellucida

I feel great all day until it's time to make dinner. Then I feel so nauseous. It does make cooking a challenge sometimes. I'm grateful for the symptom though.

I got the man to clean the house this weekend it was looking like an episode of COPS...seriously...and I couldn't wash dishes I'd have added vomit to them.

I am so tired I cannot understand it.
Going to see my doctor next week...

been craving egg salad and smoothies...go figure.
egg salad usually gives me those raunchy egg farts this pregnancy nope
(probably the rock hard cryptonite constipation that prevents gas from penetrating)

8 might be enough

Zona, I'm sorry friend.

Everyone,
I keep seeing mention of being insanely tired. Is it NORMAL to be so tired you feel like you can't take a deep breath? (I'm breathing fine. But I do feel like that.) Yesterday, dh had to stay home from work because I couldn't even feed myself.

Is this supposed to happen? Will it last long?

This was a great idea. I wish I had something of relevence to say but I don't! LOL

I think I am feeling better. At least a bit. i just wish I could get these dang headaches to go away! I know it is from the increases blood volume and flow! I can't wait for it so slow down so I can get some relief!

Hopefully we will all start to feel better in the next couple weeks!

Zona I loss my grandma on 4th of July. I am so sorry for your loss.

I feel ok today. Woke up in a funky bad mood. Just not liking work very much. Had a meeting with my acting team lead that lasted 2 hours. A lot was accomplished and made my morning go by. I'm just read to go home for the day.

I haven't talked to my BD since Monday night. Not sure why but whatever. Had dinner with my sorority sisters last night. Lots of laughs and I even hooked my sister up with our hot waiter. His name is Aaron and his ruggishly handsome and speaks spanish. LOL. My sister has already said she's going to screw him. She's raunchy but speaks her mind. Gotta love her.

Still amazed I'm 11 weeks. I do feel a little a naueous but I think a good nap would fix that. Heading home at 3:15 to put on a nightgown and get in the bed. Might watch a movie but I think I'd prefer to sleep.
