Emotions


So, I decided that I miss my little anonymous corner of the world where I can navel gaze and talk about my boobs.  Time to get back to it. To catch you up in no particular order:

or really more sleep… Part of being a new mom and having no sleep is that it makes you unable to problem solve and everything seems like a huge deal.  I realized yesterday that for the last two weeks I’ve been doing the entire night shift, from 10pm to about 6 am.  I’m not really sure why I started this.

So, I have to say this somewhere – I’m in a really tough and dark place right now.  The lack of sleep is really doing a number on me, and Mr. CC and I are not in a very good spot right now.  Without going into too much detail about private matters, he’s dropped the ball on certain things and that will put us in a very tough position in the short run.  We are going to be strapped financially and may be even incurring some debt, and we are (but mostly, I am) going to have deal with bullshit from his family that is very hurtful.

My whattoexpect.com emails just alerted me to the fact I start week 12 tomorrow. I guess I missed the updates for week 9 and 10. Where did those weeks go? Remember how I was complaining about time going too slow? Yeah. Well, now I’m freaking out because it seems like it’s moving really fast. Anyway, nothing new to report. The nausea has pretty much gone, but the exhaustion remains.

Unsurprisingly, conventional wisdom has proved to be nothing but a big, giant idiot as far as dealing with nausea during pregnancy is concerned. This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to me- when they say every body is different they really aren’t lying. You probably should experiment with what works for you, but here’s what worked for me. Full disclosure, I’ve been really lucky with morning sickness so far. No actual vomiting yet, just nausea for a short period every day or so and it has never lasted for more than 4-5 hours. On the off chance that what I’ve been doing is helping I thought I would put it out there.

So, as if my body acceptance / weight loss journey wasn’t complicated enough for my small brain, there is one more factor to throw in. I am 5 weeks pregnant. I’m ecstatic…  A little surprised. Not a complete surprise – we were trying (sorta) and I was anticipating that this might happen in the next few months. But I thought I had a little more time to get…I don’t know what? Organized, more grown up, more put together? And yes, I did want to say ‘get in better shape’.

I always do this – get up and running on a diet and exercise program and then suddenly I lose it. And I don’t mean that I lose it for a week or so. I’ve been out of focus for all of November. I’ve gained a few pounds, not too many but still it’s a gain. Have stayed off sugar for the most part except for thanksgiving and the day after. But no exercise and not watching what I eat have caught up on me. Thankfully I’ve only gained about 4 lbs but this is not the direction I want to be going in.
