What do you do with only 6 good hours in the day?

Just one more whiny post, please?

I'm only good for about 6 hours each day.

Its certainly not enough to get my actual work done, let alone any extras. This fatigue is really shutting me down. Even if I stay at work for more than 5-6 hours, I am completely useless. Mind can't think, body doesn't move well, don't give a damn about anything.

I am terminally behind, and its hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Monday things were so bad and I was so discouraged that I cried through the evening. That was actually funny in that the Boy had never seen me cry before, and he couldn't figure out what was going on with Mommys face and those funny noises. First he stared, then he laughed, then he looked sad.

I still rely on my village a lot, but I quit the supper club, because I can't even manage to make one elaborate meal each weekend. It's like "cutting off my nose to spite my face" as my Mom used to say because now I have to cook 5 small meals, and not one big one. Don't care, will make PB and J. Luckily this week, I've been invited for dinner twice. Let's see if I can actually get those thank you cards written.

Today marks officially the beginning of week 11. That means I am close to ending my first trimester. I can tell everyone next week (more understanding, perhaps?) and the FATIGUE should dissipate shortly thereafter. Can't wait for the second trimester springiness I got last pregnancy. Then it will all be better, and I will return to normal. Please let it be so.


  1. Aaaw, hope you feel better soon. It's hard being pregnant and trying to manage a child and a job without a spouse around to do stuff.

  2. It's hard to do this on your own. You are so brave. Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Here's hoping you have that you have one of those wonderful, kick ass happy 2nd trimesters!

    Hang in there.

  4. You are an incredible woman! Hope things improve soon.
