Hosting a Mooch

My energy had been higher through 22-25 weeks than in my first trimester. I was able to accomplish a lot in a day and although I was tired, I didn't feel the need to curl up under my desk and take a naps. I was completing 3-4 workouts per week which was my goal.  Guess that was short lived.

Last week I hit a wall again. I have been so tired and the nausea seems to have reared its ugly head again.  I'm pretty sure my baby is sucking every bit of life out of me.  If it means he's going to be healthy, then he can have it all. I eat and an hour later I feel like I could devour a bear. I have to eat dinner right before I go to bed or I'll never make it through the night with out a snack. I've given up completely on being a paleo pregnant woman. Now I'm just counting down the days until I'm in charge of my appetite once again.

Traeger is getting bigger and much stronger. His body parts are starting to feel like knots from the outside. Last night he pushed out a foot, hand, knee or elbow and I pushed it back. He gave me a good tap back with it a second later. It felt like he was actually responding to my touch. Really cool! Sometimes I can feel where his backside is, but I'm not quite sure if he is head up or head down. Knowing that there is a sweet angel in there is my only enjoyment in this. I feel horrible saying that because I know there are women out there that will never be able to experience a child growing inside them. I'm just not good at being pregnant.

  1. I know, that is seriously the coolest thing ever! It is a bit annoying when I'm trying to sleep and she starts poking out some body part to where it makes my belly all tight. I still love it though.

    I'm with you on hitting a wall this week. I think it's the hot weather we've had here. It's like 90 and all I want to do is lay naked on a block of ice somewhere:)haha.

    Hope the nausea goes away fast!

  2. Are you having braxton hicks yet? I get them all the time.

    And I was hungry when I wrote this blog. Starving. Therefore I was ultra moody and the nausea can be fought off with food. I fell better now, still want to curl up and take a nap though.

  3. No, no braxton hicks. At least not that I know! :) Do they wear you out?

    I'm crazy tired lately, and not doing enough activity. I start it and then just give up and lay down:). Hopefully this will pass soon.

    Glad to hear that the nausea at least can be fought off:). I'd be eating non-stop... oh wait, I already am! :)haha.
