Where did this exhaustion come from?

This is getting ridiculous. In the past 2 weeks I have sat on this couch and watched more tv than I have probably all year. I get home from work and even though I have a million things I could be doing, the mere thought of getting up and exerting energy to do those things makes me want to just close my eyes and fall asleep. I do not remember feeling this tired when I was pregnant with Porter. And I was student teaching full time then! I don't really remember feeling this tired even after Porter was born and I was getting up at all hours of the night. What the hell! So, I sit here yet another afternoon.... doing nothing but watching tv and blogging. I really really want to take a nap. Yesterday Ryan got home from work and sent me to bed to take a nap. I slept for about an hour and felt SO much better when I woke up. I should probalby take a little cat nap since its just Porter and I all night (Ry has class).

What else is daily life like lately...
  • My pants are getting tight. THAT is ridiculous. 7 weeks... thats IT and my ass and thighs and gut are already packing on the pounds. Its so hard to eat healthy when the only things that sound stomach settling is junk food.
  • My boobs... GAHHH! They're bigger already. Help me! I just started to notice that instead of saggy, deflated boobs they're actually looking..... uh.. "fuller" is that the term? Kind of nice but then.... I really don't want a bigger chest.
  • I've been pretty good as far as getting sick goes. I feel nauseous on and off all day long typically, but as long as I keep something in my stomach I don't throw up.

I think you probably just forgot about the exhaustion. I remember it well... I hated that tired feeling. It was like unsatisfied sleepiness. Like all I ever wanted to do was lay down and even if I did take a nap, I didn't really feel any less tired when I woke up. I swear I could have gone to bed at 8 every night!

I SOO remember being tired all the time! I'm looking forward to that part at all! What am I gonna do with a 2 year around the house when all I want to do is sleep?!?! Maybe it will help if we make more of an attempt to go walking again. They say they when you are actively exercising you gain more energy during the day. I don't know if that applies to when your preggo though. We'll see.

I am soooo exhausted all the time. Have been since the beginning. I'm 15 weeks now and still tired. I find that when my iron is low, I am more tired. Maybe try eating some Total? Maybe it will help. I hate being tired, it is the worst! It will pass soon though!

Happy 8 weeks today! For some reason, 8 weeks always feels further along for me - maybe because it's the 2 months mark? Anyway, congrats!
