That's how I started feeling last night and it's not subsiding. . .

I was so happy yesterday when I realized I was going to be able to leave work early. J (my friend coming to visit) hadn't sent me a message yet saying that she was leaving and that meant I was going to have 2 hours before she got here. I was going to be able to figure out what we were going to do and take a nap. But then on my way home I get a message saying she was only an hour away. I wanted to cry, there went my nap. I get home and B had picked up the kitchen, but failed to clean up the bathroom that was disgusting. So I start cleaning the bathroom and crying. I was exhausted and in severe need of rest, but I couldn't sleep while J was here. So B tells me to go take a nap while I can. I go lay down but can't stop crying. I was tired, all I wanted to do was sleep, but I had a friend driving two hours to visit me and I had no idea what we were going to do because my energy was so low and I was afraid she was going to have a terrible time.

I did manage to get a short nap before she got here. And we ended up going to visit my mom and family up at her camp. It was a great deal for them because it's an hour drive from my place and they had a DD. Some how I managed to make it til 2 in the morning before I had to go to bed.

In the night our dog woke me up at 3 to be let out and then at 7:30 B's friend called because he was bored. I couldn't fall back asleep so up I got. Around 9 J and her BF N got up. At 11 we went to lunch. On the way there I started to get that overwhelming feeling of exhaustion again. By the time we got back home I had no choice but to lay down. I slept for 2 hours I think, but woke up still feeling exhausted. I'm not sure if it is lack of sleep from all week or sleeping too long during my nap, but I just want to go to bed again and it's only 5.

In other news (which may be way too much, but I need advice) is that I'm having loose bowel movements. Is this normal or do you think I should call the doctor? It's weird cause it's not a lot when I go and it's only maybe twice a day after I eat, but I don't know if it's something to call the doctor about or not. I was constipated last time. What do you think?

I am feeling quite confident in this pregnancy again though. I'm so excited and can't wait for the weeks to keep ticking by, less than 3 weeks to my first appointment!

PS - I never thought I'd talk about my bathroom habits to the entire world!!!


  1. Hi Brandi It is Kat from wte. I was trying to catch up on all the post when i found out u guys were leaving. Well I just want to say Congrats i am so happy for you. I am wishing u a happy and healthy 9 months.

  2. I think Angie mentioned having the same tummy issues, then it turned into constipation later on. Your hormones are going haywire, and your body is just in the beginning of adjusting to its new responsibilities. I don't think there is anything to be worried about at all. :-)

  3. Hmmm... Well, I did have constipation initially and then I discovered later that all I want is something juicy, so I started eating lots of fruits. And now I am going to the toilet more regularly.

    Yeah, if it concerns you, do give your doc a call.

    Trust me. I talk more about my toilet movements to anybody and everybody if they care to listen. :)

    ps With pregnancy, comes farting too. LOL. :)
