This is pregnancy #2 for me. With #1 I was so busy finishing my dissertation I barely had time to enjoy it. I took two years off to stay at home and now with #2 I plan on returning right back to work. staying at home just wasn't for me. Anyway, I am thrilled to be pregnant but losing ALL MOTIVATIOn at work! I just don't care, I just want to be lazy and pregnant. Anyone else have this happen to them when pregnant?
I taught up until a week before I had my first son and didn't get why everybody was so surprised.
I started cutting back on substitute teaching months ago with this one and have not been working on my comps like I should. On the one hand, I wish I had some sort of concrete work to do, but there's no way I have the brain power for anything sustained right now.
I feel the same and sadly I have 12 weeks to go with no option for leaving before my baby comes. If I go overdue I'm going to be so miserable. I already can't deal with the sheer physical discomfort of sitting at my desk all day (I'm such a wimp, I know it could be so much worse!).
I stayed at home while pregnant with my first two. I enjoyed it. But I'm enjoying working this time around. I get out of the house and don't sit on my butt all day accumulating extra weight like I did during previous pregnancies.
But I'm only 23 weeks so I may start to lose my motivation somewhere down the line.
I'm 7 years older now than last time, so I'm blaming on that. On the other hand, I'm in a MUCH better postion at work, so I'm a little happier to be here. But I have such limited patience for DH and DD and all of the body aches, pains, unbalance, difficulty with stairs, sleeping, etc.
Oh I totally hear you. I feel like I'm not motivated to do a lot right now. I just want to cocoon and read and think and take care of myself. But life doesn't stop spinning and so it's going through the motions for now.
