The Aliens Have Taken Over

Can I just say that I am no longer in control of my body? Those two little creatures above are now ruling how I feel on a daily basis. The frustrating part is that there is no consistency to how you feel.

Most days I feel pretty good between the hours of 7am and 2pm. Today, not so much. I am starting to get the sense that queasiness is becoming a part of my daily routine. Usually, I am lucky and I don't experience it until late in the day. And, despite, having had a good night's sleep, I have just wanted to nap for the last hour since coming home from breakfast.

This is really a change for me. I have never been the type that likes to just lounge around. If the sun is shining, then I am usually getting something done--either around the house or out running an errand. I have had to take my to do list down several notches. Everybody tells me this temporary and by week 13, I'll be back to my old self. All I know is that is still six weeks away.

Until then, back to the couch for me.


  1. Enjoy this time. This is the one time a woman is allowed to be a lounger! LOL! I hope the m/s isn't too bad for you though! Wishing you well!

  2. I know it is hard to do but enjoy the time, and trust your body. If you feel uncomfortable call your OB. I had a vanishing twin with my daughter and 28 weeks later (she was delievered at 37 weeks) I gave birth to a 9lb 13 ounce 23 inches baby girl.
