Total Lack of Motivation (pardon the whining)

I am seriously the biggest bump on a log ever. Today is a perfectly beautiful day to get lots of things done around the house and I just don't feel like moving. DH and I went out and looked at a few houses (with no luck yet) and as soon as I got home, I collapsed on the couch for a nap. Now I am hungry and my stomach feels upset, but thinking about eating make me nauseous. DH is trying to get me to help him work on a grocery list, but again, thinking about food is just totally nauseating. I really, really need to get some housework done, but I am completely wiped out. I'm so ready to have my energy back!

I would like my energy back as well. I have never been so tired/exhausted in all of my life. It's just like physically my body collapses and can go no further! I have plenty of household chores I could be doing. Or I could even be outside playing with my kids but my body just screams for me to stay on the couch and rest, rest, rest!

Me,too! I am so tired, I feel like I am on the two nap a day schedule, except I miss them both! But serious, I can sleep 10 hours a night and nap 2 X a day and still be tired.

I'm right there with you all! My house is a disaster, I have a ton of laundry to put away. I am past the point of caring. Blum 3

I've never been a wonderful housekeeper... so I'm a little scared of what my house will look like at the end of this pregnancy!

I will allow myself to whine for a second. I have zero energy, am nauseated every day most of the day and need several naps to make it through the day. Except I work full time in another town so am there all week, and then I work in the evenings and weekends too from home. I feel like I am on the verge of getting a terrible flu every day - sort of like the longest hangover in history actually. On Sundays I try to muster all the strength I can to make it through the next work week. I think I will take a blanket with me to work so I can try to sleep in my car over lunch. I am only 7 weeks so I am sure this lovely feeling will be with me for some time yet. And the worst is: I am starting a new job in 2 weeks and am worried I will make a bad impression right from the start being exhausted and nauseated all the time.
Ok, second is up. Biggrin Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Ditto on everything. I'm trying to at least keep up with the dishes (oh but the smell is so awful!) and vacuum some and do a load or two of laundry a day. Other than that I can't seem to muster up the strength or energy for much else. I have been racking my brain trying to remember when I started feeling normal again the last two pregnancies but can't remember! Argh!

I feel the same way! Pretty soon, I will have to pay Dora a babysitting fee!
