: 6 weeks, 6 days
: Appointment with my OB's nurse on Friday morning
: Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeed. SOOOOOOOO tired. I've been too tired to come on the computer even. I have about 4 or 5 hours of energy in me in the late morning/early afternoon, and then its nap time whether I have somewhere to go or not, and then it's time to lie listlessly in front of the TV and try not to fall back asleep until DH goes to bed. Um...otherwise, I still have huge, perky-yet-sore breasts...backache and muscle aches...the occasional headache the last couple days...thirsty all the frickin' time. And I'm having annoying pains in my abdominal muscles. They're from something that was wrong with me for about a year before TTC that the doctors and specialists couldn't figure out because I seem perfectly healthy, so I'm trying not to let myself worry too much because I know what they are, but I'm still looking forward to Friday when I can ask someone about them.
: I'm having mild aversions (mostly to certain types of desserts, so it's probably a good thing!) still and if I eat too much I feel "pukey", but I'm still holding off the specter of morning sickness.
: My goal is to actually cook something healthy with lots of veggies today, because DH has been doing all the cooking for the last week and I feel bad, and because it's time to step things up and eat better. It's hard, though, because if there's any food out on the counter, it just smells so much
. Not bad, but just a lot of smell, and I don't want to be near it.
: I slept through my yoga class on Friday.
Well, I chose to nap when I should have be getting out the door...though there wasn't a whole lot of choice in the matter. I think I could've gotten myself there if the studio was next door, but driving for at least twenty minutes each way and a whole yoga class was too much to handle.
Body changes and other milestones
: I haven't gained any more weight this week, which is a relief because I gained six or so pounds almost immediately and I know that you don't need to gain a whole lot in your first trimester. Still, MY JEANS DON'T FIT ANYMORE. *sob* I can zip them up and everything, but I wouldn't want to where them long enough to get the stretch out factor going on. Oh well, I guess this is why I saved my bigger clothes when I lost weight, but I'm feeling pretty frumpy at the moment. On the other hand, I don't want to go out and buy new jeans that I like only to not be able to wear them in a few weeks, so I guess frumpy it is for the moment. ETA: Oh, and I think I can feel the bump bumping out just a little! I'm not a huge fan of the word "bump", but it does kind of describe things well at this stage, I guess. That's exciting, and possibly why I've been experiencing more pain in my abs?
: The tiredness is starting to get me depressed. I feel bad that DH is doing everything. I feel bad that I'm not getting anything done. I have this ongoing project that was doing really well until this past week when I didn't advance it at all. Plus, I committed to helping a couple of friends out with things that I now am really having a hard time concentrating on. I know I really am this tired, but for some reason there's always this corner of my mind accusing me of faking it, and then I feel guilty and lazy. *sighs*
On the other hand, Easter was fun. Everyone who was at the party knows already, so it was nice to talk to people about being pregnant and be around people that aren't too tired to be excited about it right now. I wanted to spend more time with my mom, though. The tiredness got in the way of that. Bah.
