My pregnancy emotions are OUT OF WHACK with my third child.
Here we are, dealing with pregnancy puke and the general state of all things pregnant related. Those feelings and emotions are hitting hard, y’all.
Being Pregnant Feels Like a Roller Coaster
I feel as if I am on a roller coaster, a pregnancy roller coaster of emotions. I have good days (high) and bad days (low) – and then others I feel like I am going thru the loopy loop – oh the ride of life.
Pregnancy is a roller coaster, of many sorts: emotions, energy, appetite, cravings, nauseousness, did I mention EMOTIONS?
OH lovely emotions. Today I actually caught myself CRYING to a freaking WALMART commercial. With E I cried to On-Star commercials – but those people were stuck in a car.
Well apparently, Walmart’s new approach of giving your college kids who are leaving home the room they want in college has triggered my tear ducts.
ALL THE TEARS – how sad is that? A commercial making me cry. Oh pregnancy. Oh emotions. Why can’t you just control yourself, as if there isn’t enough going on wild style with my body, you have to visit now as well?
I’m in Atlanta for work. The flight was a joke. The turbulence and nausea are NOT a good combination. I’ve spent the last 6 hours holed up in a hotel room experiencing the other issues.
Fatigue While Pregnant
Tired? I have this new on-demand narcolepsy thing I can do. I think SLEEP – wham I can sleep! Why are you fatigued while pregnant? You are growing a baby, silly. Of course you will be tired.
Fatigue during pregnancy is very common. Some women may feel exhausted throughout their pregnancy, while some may hardly feel tired at all. Although experience with fatigue tends to vary, most women will feel more tired than usual during their pregnancy. Fatigue during pregnancy is most common during the first trimester. It tends to go away during the second trimester, but will usually return in the third trimester.American Pregnancy
Appetite & Cravings
While my appetite is whack, the pregnancy cravings are real.
While not being able to eat anything during the day, I came home just in time to make dinner. Hunger made it’s appearance. I enjoyed quesadillas dipped in onion soup. My husband said “write that down for the books”.
With my first pregnancy, I loved cottage cheese and A-1 sauce. With the second pregnancy, I actually ate chips a hoy with curry.
Oh the joys, the ups and downs – and this is only the beginning. I guess I better make sure my buckle is snapped and get ready to enjoy the ride.
