Thoughts On Being Pregnant

I don't much care for it. At least the early weeks. I am tired beyond belief, and the work at home and with William just doesn't end. There's always something to be done, and I have no energy to do it. I have to say that I have been sleeping better at night, due to ear plugs. I never thought I'd ever wear them, but I wish I had had them much earlier in our marriage, as John has gotten up at 4am for a loooong time now. Now I don't hear a thang! :-)

I haven't gone out of the house in...oh...about a month now, except for groceries and to take William on quick walks. But you know what? I don't care. I have no energy or desire to go out. I can't wait for this feeling to pass! I know it will, and that's what's keeping me going.

On another note, John got out an old keyboard from the garage the other day just for William. He loves to Skype, but also loves to pound on the keyboard while Skyping. At the suggestion of my Mom John dug out this old keyboard and William thinks he's hot stuff! He'll pound on the keys, look at me, and say "dada", like he's typing an email to John. Too cute!

Well, I better make sure the maid is doing her job!! Gotta go!

I can totally relate to this!! I felt this way the whole month of January...didn't make it out much and barely saw anyone except family. I feel like I'm finally turning the corner (almost 15 weeks now) so hopefully the end is near for you, too! Hang in there - and I agree with Carole - just keep 'baby thoughts' in your mind & heart. It helps me get through it, too.
