Making Babies is Hard Work!

I am about nine weeks along and the sickness is getting to me.  At first it was a little nausea, but if I ate it would go away.  Ginger chews would work well, as did donuts!  Now, however, it's just this sickness hanging around me all day.  I'm totally tired, unmotivated, don't want to move.  Poor Ingrid!

I've tried to keep busy, thinking if I just keep moving I'll distract myself.  It works sometimes, but today I got up ready to go go go and I puked.  And afterward could not move a muscle for two hours.  For real, I have to do three more weeks of this???

I hated being pregnant with Ingrid and swore up and down I'd never do it again.  Yet somehow these weeks at the beginning that go SO SLOWLY and are so uncomfortable were forgotten.  All I could remember was the cute little belly, the kicks, and the baby at the end.  These next three weeks cannot go fast enough!  Here I come, second trimester!

Aw, I'm sorry. I remember being SO tired when I was pregnant with Johnny. I remember at least twice lying on the floor watching Emma play and then waking up to find her climbing on me. It did get a lot better after the 1st trimester, though. I hope you feel better soon!

Hang in there! Before you know it the sickness will only be a bad memory. Just stay focused on the end result. I was definitely not a stellar mom during that horrible stretch of pregnancy. At least Ingrid is little enough she won't remember this part later. Hope you feel better very soon

ahhhhhhhhh I totally missed your announcement!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats!!!

Yes those first few weeks are the slowest! Hope you feel better soon.

The first few weeks are hard, hard work, and like you I had totally forgotten about them! Factor in your first 'baby' and it makes life tough.

But it does get better, and of course is always worth it in the end.
