September 25

I always heard people talk about how tired they were in their first trimester, how they fell asleep at 8pm every night and slept like a rock. My experience so far is a little different. Don't get me wrong, I am absolutely exhausted just about every second of the day but then when I get in bed at night I'm wired. It's like a switch flips and my body and brain go into overdrive. My mind races and I toss and turn until I finally fall asleep, then a few hours later I wake up to pee or because a dog needs out and I feel wide awake again when I lay back down. This leaves me feeling so sluggish during the day. It's that feeling of I need coffee now!!! only I can't have it. I know some people do continue to drink caffeine, and small amounts are probably fine but there is evidence linking caffeine to miscarraige so at this point it's a risk I'm not willing to take. I'll live with the overwhelming fatigue because I know it means my body is working hard making our little Baby Morris.

The other major thing I'm noticing is the sore tatas, I mean WOW...like really really sore. But again, nothing I can't live with for sure. I'm also not hungry. I don't feel sick really, maybe a vague feeling of nausea off and on (but I'm not sure this is pregnacy related as I've always tended to be a nauseaus person in general), but I just have no appetite. Nothing sounds good, I don't think about food, I take a few bites of something and don't want to finish it. If you know me, you know how unusual this is. I typically LOVE to eat!! I know that my body knows what it's doing at this point, so I'm just trusting it and eating what I feel like eating when I feel like eating it. I have no doubt that my appetite will return with a vengeance in no time!

the sore boobs are the bane of Rich's existence. they get huge but may not be played with. I remember and have sympathy for him. it's the first of many dissapointments he will encounter over the next few months. wait... years.
