I feel icky

I guess I am in denial. I think I really am suffering from some form of morning sickness--likes it comes in different kinds! It doesn't feel like I am imminent of vomiting but I just feel sick. I can't exactly describe it as nausea, but that's the only thing to describe it as. The thing is, I will be hungry, I will eat, then I will feel that way. I felt great all day today, I took a nap, and now I feel sick again. I tried to eat but that didn't help matters. I didn't have this with my other kiddos so I am not sure if this is morning sickness or not or if I have some kind of funk?!?!

The thought of meat makes me want to gag although I successfully ate steak yesterday. The only think that seems to make my stomach feel better is carby things like bread and potatoes. But regardless of what I eat, I feel ill afterwards.

Beyond that, I am doing okay. Hoping to get in a workout in tonight when I feel better.

Hope all of you are well.

Wow I am tired. Daylight Savings Time couple with pregnancy equals extreme fatigue. Its almost 1 and I can barely keep my eyes open.

I have found something to combat fatigue: working out. If I workout in the afternoons/evenings, I don't feel so crappy! If I don't workout, I want to cry because I'm so tired. Too freakin bad I'm at work right now. Man I need a nap or an elliptical.

Slow and Steady Wins The Race

That's what I was telling myself on the elliptical today. I was moving like a turtle on that thing today. I guess I should focus on the positive: I WAS at the gym. I WAS working out. That's gotta count for something right?

Daylights savings time really jacks me up. Yesterday I was about to cry at 5pm because I was so tired. I knew if I took a nap, I wouldn't sleep well at all. I haven't slept well since the time change. So instead of laying on the couch, I got on my gazelle for over an hour. I felt GREAT afterwards. G-R-E-A-T. I was well energized. So today after work I did the same thing. Well, minus about 40+ minutes;-). Now it's after 9:30 and I am still awake! Exercise does a body good. Especially this pregnant body of mine. I'm not sure if it's the time change or this baby, but one of the two is kicking my butt. Luckily I found a way to combat the tiredness and stay in shape!

That's all I have. My husband posted it on myspace so I figured I'd tell you all too. I've never been superstitious about telling before the 2nd trimester so there's no reason to be now. I wanted to do things a little different this time--not tell anyone, not find out the gender, not have an epidural, not gain a ton....Hopefully the latter 3 will work! Jess is my muse for two of those!
