16 Weeks and Counting


I will say that I generally don't complain about my pregnancy in everyday conversation becasue

1) I know how fortunate I am to be pregnant and

2) I'm pretty sure that people don't want to hear about my petty problems

But if you'll allow me just a wee little minute to complain, I promise to love you forever and ever. 

Okay, so here goes.  I'm 16 weeks at this point and still exhausted.  A night that I make it past 8:30 is considered a miracle around these parts.  In addition to that, I still feel completely gaggy (yes, I made up that word) and I have the cold that refuses to die and it has somehow mutated into a sore throat that won't go away.  And I think that I'm completely wearing myself out during the week days so that every weekend I end up completely exhausted and feeling ill and I spend at least one day apologizing to Ben for not getting enough done around the house (even though he never makes me feel as if I'm not getting enough done).

And that is my extremely long-winded way of saying that I am officially in the second trimester now and if the first trimester yuckies would kindly go away, that would be much appreciated.

End whiny post.


  1. Aw I hope your feeling better soon!

  2. Yeah. When I was pregnant, I kept waiting for the "magic" second trimester to hit. And waiting. And waiting. I was like, all those books LIED TO ME!

    I did finally feel better. Oddly, in the first part of my third trimester. Hope you get your "magic" energy burst soon!

  3. I threw up every day until 24 weeks so feel free to complain!

    At least you know as soon as you feel better you'll completely forget how bad you felt.

  4. Whine away. It's not easy making a human. On the bright side, you have enviably long legs and fabulous curly hair, no matter how crap you might be feeling.

    yowza....feel better lady!

  6. Hope you feel better soon. I think the thing that surprised me most about pregnancy was how much it hurt! Sometimes it's really not fun. Buuuuut of course it's so worth it!

  7. I f-ing hate how your body doesn't adhere to dates like it's supposed to. My body didn't get the second trimester memo with Jude and I really needed to stop barfing and maybe get out of bed. Feel free to complain to me all you want. Being pregnant is a blessing and is totally worth it and does suck balls. Hang in there girlfriend, I'm thinkiing good thoughts that you'll feel better tomorrow, if not sooner!

  8. what sucks is the realization that you are going to feel like crap for so long and the only way it is going to end is with horrific pain. glad i was able to paint you a bright sunny rainbow filled picture! xxxooo i am sorry you are sick still.


A comment? For me? You're the best!
