I know that I am not the only one feeling crappy, and I know it's for a good reason in the end, but I am SO tired of feeling sick!! I'm not even 6 weeks yet and the nausea and fatigue are taking over my body. I never experienced this with any of my other pregnancies, so it's frustrating to be going through it this time.
Yesterday around 2pm I was so tired that I was literally nodding off at my desk at work, and I felt horrible - like I had been run over by a truck. When I got off the bus at the park and ride, I called DH and asked him to pick the kids up from their after school program when he got off work so that I could go home and rest. So I went home and slept from 5:30 to 7:30, then got up, saw my kids for an hour until they went to bed, and by 9pm I was sleeping again on the couch. Then I got up, went straight to bed without brushing my teeth or washing my face. I was shaking and nauseous, and had a horrible headache. I managed to fall asleep again, and slept through the night, then I couldn't get up this morning! I almost called in sick to work, but finally got myself up an hour late and went in since I am off for the holidays tomorrow, Friday, and Monday. Today I'm pale, shaky and feel awful, and my boss is taking me out for a holiday lunch and I don't know how I'm going to do it!
The thing that is the worst is that I can't tell anyone yet, so I get to feel miserable alone. DH is trying his best to help, but we're having company for Christmas on Friday AND Saturday and I have to cook both days. I have no clue how I am going to have the energy to clean the house and get stuff ready to have my in-laws over, let alone how I am going to make it through three days of celebrating Christmas when I feel this horrible! I have no energy to be a mom to my three girls, and my patience is low... I just want to bawl. :bawl:
My first appointment is Friday, so I am hoping that once the appt is over and all is okay, DH will let me tell our families so that they can be a bit more understanding over Christmas...
Anyway, sorry for the whining. I just had to get it out somewhere and I can't do it IRL at the moment.
