Okay, can I just gripe a little? Today has been the most miserable day thus far of this pregnancy. I'm just exhausted and nauseated and bloated and worthless. This morning we had a class in Basic Life Support (aka CPR), which was a total waste of time. Basically it involved sitting around watching a video, then practicing chest compressions on a little plastic guy. For 4 hours. Even though this doesn't sound strenuous, I found it draining. Then we all went to lunch at my very favorite restaurant, El Mazatlan, but even that hurt my tummy. So I went home to take a little lunchtime nap. That lasted a few hours. oops. I feel bad because I should have been getting some work done or something, but I'm too dang tired. I did finally get up and drive in to help Mark out for a couple of hours. I guess I owe him, although I'd rather not admit it! And now I'm lying around being worthless again.
Dennis was going to make some stir-fry with our fresh snow peas, but I can't even imagine eating that. And I know it's yummy, but the tummy says no. So what's a girl to do? Maybe eat some Nilla wafers. Maybe. If I don't eat something soon I'll probably feel worse.
I was just hoping that I'd been through the worst of the first trimester nausea and fatigue, but apparently not yet. I just have to keep reminding myself that I'm tired because everything is going to the baby's growth, right?
And at least I'm only in clinic once this week, which is a treat. Except I'll have to sit through ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) and NRP (Neonatal Resuscitation) instead. I don't know which is worse... All I really need is a comfortable place to sit every once in a while, but that seems to be too much to ask.
Alright, I'm done griping now.
Okay, who am I kidding? I never really stop.
