I know it’s been a long time since I have posted. I have been very busy, you see. Busy wallowing in my nausea and self-pity!
It’s such a vicious cycle. I feel tired and sick, so I’m not very productive. Then, because I’m not productive, I start mentally beating myself up about being so lazy and wimpy. That, of course, makes me feel even worse, and I get cranky. You can see the downward spiral. And you would think that by the 7th pregnancy I would be better at it than this!
I had set my psychological timer for 12 weeks. I could deal with the sickness until 12 weeks (pregnancy timeline), and then I would magically feel better and get a boost of energy and motivation!
Unfortunately, 12 weeks came and went, and I don’t feel any better. My only choice is to pick myself up, put on a happy face, and try to stay busy enough that I don’t have time to whine and complain. Right? I can’t think of any other workable options.
So this is my formal declaration. I’m done wallowing! Wish me luck!
