Still Tired

Filed under: 14 Weeks,General — Beth @ 19:29

The crazy sleepiness is still hitting in the afternoon. I fell asleep on BART today and almost missed my stop! I’m coming down with the virus Vic has had for the last 4 days. I’ve been taking extra zinc to try to stave off the worst of it. I don’t want to have another high fever while I’m pregnant.

Drained

Filed under: 14 Weeks,General — Beth @ 15:07

The nausea is letting up, but the fatigue is continuing. I’m really ready to be done with the first trimester symptoms. I keep waking up with energy most days (not today ‘cos I was up with a sick Vic most of the night), and then after lunch it just … vanishes. A wave of extreme lethargy hits me and I can barely keep my eyes open through the afternoon.

When I was pregnant with Vic, I could nap when I got home from work. This time I have to stay awake and keep an eye on Vic. It’s … difficult.

My appetite is starting to return though – I ate a huge lunch on Friday and then brunch on Saturday. It’s nice to be able to enjoy food again, for the most part.

Though, again, not today. The lack of sleep has conspired to make my stomach touchy. Bah!
