YOO-HOO Motivation?!?! Are you out there?

So, being knocked up has officially wiped me out. Craig will tell you that I am a champion sleeper. I never make it through a movie, very rarely am I sill awake after 10:00, and once I get into bed there’s very little that will wake me up. I am by all accounts a good sleeper.

Now add the minor duty of creating a life, and I am exhausted beyond belief. While I’ve always been able to fall asleep quickly, I also woke up quickly in the mornings. Not anymore. I swear for the last few weeks I have woken up tired. At work, I look at my list of 27 things to do and then disappear to go lie down on a kind of gross cushioned bench in the ladies room for 10 minutes in the afternoon. And at home, if I’m awake past 7:30 at night, I’m calling it a win.

It seems so long ago that I was working 10 hours a day at job #1 and moonlighting a couple nights a week and job #2 thinking that this pregnancy thing wasn’t so hard, and that I’d just breeze right through it. I planned to announce the pregnancy at the end of the first trimester because surely I could hide it from all my female coworkers. I was not going to the THAT pregnant girl who lost her gumption and her brain power. BWHAHAHAA… Clearly I was mistaken.

People keep telling me that my energy level will increase once I hit the second trimester. I sure hope they’re right. And while I’m hoping for things, how about the queasiness, gagging and cramps go away too?? … mmkay?? ::SIGH:: Complaint time over… it’s all worth it to have a healthy baby!
