Through all of this so far I've learned the importance of taking care of myself, especially since I don't have anyone here to do it for me-to make sure I'm eating, to rub my feet when they are sore. Last week I woke up with a horrible kink in my neck that ran down my back. It was there for days and finally I broke down and scheduled a massage for myself-and I even walked on the wild side and scheduled it for 90 minutes! Woohoo! I figure if I am going to start treating myself, I'm going to really treat myself. After I was done I went ahead and signed up for a membership so I can keep getting this done once a month. It's going to be completely imperative through this pregnancy especially. The knot in my neck is gone... I'm hoping to sleep wonderfully (HA-decent at best) tonight.
Speaking of sleep, I had my first super vivid pregnancy dream last night-it was a horrible nightmare that someone had a gun and a flashlight and was trying to break into my house via the sliding glass door. My neighbors came to the rescue but it was still one of the most terrifying dreams I've had in a long long time. Hopefully it's not a repeating theme or anything.
I'm still pretty nauseous most of the time. I'm able to get down breakfast and then something mid afternoon. That's still a major improvement so I'll take it, but I'm very much looking forward to this part being gone forever.
I wore a maternity shirt today because my other regular shirts are starting to get a little short (laaaaame). Maternity pants are awesome though.
Also today I was so tired that I cried on the phone with P. I had a question for him so I called him, he hadn't been answering my texts-he had fallen asleep. This is after I spent the entire afternoon begging the girls to please take a quiet time so I can rest. If I'm going to survive summer break with this pregnancy the addition to the house is going to HAVE to be done. So needless to say I got a weeeeee bit emotional because I'm just that wiped. It's 9pm and I don't think I can bring myself to even run the dishwasher right now... The house isn't DIRTY per say, there is just a lot to pick up. Maybe tomorrow. I think that will be the theme for this pregnancy.
