Pregnancy as I know it.

I don't really feel too different thus far. Yesterdays lunch of a green salad and chicken was harder to get through than it should have been, but I'm not overly queasy. I've felt full and bloated in my lower belly, and maybe what I would call pressure, but no cramping. Mostly I feel the same.

There are two things I do seem to gave an excess of - urine and yawning.

One night this week we laid down on the couch for about an hour. I made sure to pee before we laid down, but in that hour I peed an additional two times! And I really had to go not just the felt-like-I-had-to, but the move-or-I'll-pee-my-pants kind. Jeremy found it hilarious and by the last time he was teasing me and asking if he should just move the tv so that I could stay in there. I should have taken him up on it.

I've also been pretty tired. A noticeable lack of energy during the day and by 7:30-8:00 I am ready for bed. Yesterday I was in the copy room and a coworker asked if I was okay. I turned around and said, "yes! Of course. What's up?" And she pointed out that in the probably two minutes we were in there together, I'd yawned at least three times! We laughed and I joked about needing a nap. It was only noon!

Besides my over abundance of urine and my inability to keep my eyes open, I feel pretty good! I am so grateful for the opportunity to experience these things and look forward to what is to come. As my BFF Susan says, "I would say it sucks, but you're pregnant, so it is awesome!" So true.

  1. Yay for yawns and pee!!! I'm literally in the bathroom every ten minutes.

  2. I love that I'm quoted. And I stand by my previous statement :)
