Hibernation Sounds Like a Good Idea.....

Unfortunately, I will not be one of those women who skate through their pregnancy without any symptoms other than great skin and shinny hair. I can already tell I will be the opposite! Six weeks into my pregnancy my skin looks horrible and my once shinny hair has now turned to hay. I also have morning sickness for 21 out of the 24 hours in a day. Even with the few flares up throughout the day where I think I might die, the permanent nauseated feeling is manageable.

What I can't handle is the constant tiredness I have felt nonstop since finding out I was pregnant! I would be happy if I could hibernate for 9 months and wake up just before the baby arrives. I seriously feel like I took 5 boxes of NyQuil and I'm trying my best to stay awake. Saturday night I went to bed at 6 P.M. Yes, 6 P.M. and I didn't wake up until the following morning at 9 A.M. During the week I am excited to come home after work because I know I have my comfy king size bed waiting for me. I hope my tiredness passes soon and doesn't last the whole pregnancy. Hmmm, maybe I should rethink this......it might be best if I take advantage of my freedom to sleep when I want now. Once the baby is here it will be a completely different story!!

Seriously, do sleep as much as you possibly can right now. Before you know it you will be getting up numerous times a night to pee, and then after the baby gets here - well just forget about sleep then, LOL.
