Morning Sickness Last All Day!?!

I am so nauseated and with each week it seems to intensify. I was excused from class today after getting up for the fourth time to run to the bathroom. I was not soaking much information in anyways. I went home and slept till about 2 in the afternoon. I think I over did it this past week. I had studied for two test, gone to class for twelve hours, worked 38 hours at the hospital, and of course my normal jobs around the house. I never knew how exhausting it is too be pregnant, and not doing things myself is not my style at all. I would rather cut off my finger than ask for help, then I normally feel guilty for not doing it myself. BUT, I am starting to realize eveything I do to my body, not only affects me, but the baby too. SO, I am trying to slow down, which I know must frustrate John, which of course makes me feel bad. AND then to top it off, I seem to be surrounded by super women who apparently did 90 hours a week at work, won the Nobel Prize, and found the cure to AIDS all while being pregnant and keeping a perfectly clean house. I hate women like this, well maybe hate is too strong of a word, how about strongly dislike. I am not that woman, and God did not supply me with that much energy. As you can tell the hormones have kicked in : )
Our first appointment is in one week and 2 days. I am so excited. We will frist see the OB at 8:15, then have an ultrasound at 9:15. Our vacation will be the week to follow. I don't think John and I have spent an entire week together since our honeymoon!

I hope everyone is doing well!

don't be so hard on yourself -- you should be relishing this time of relaxation and being the spoiled pregnant lady. atleast, those are my plans when it's my time. :)

Aaahhhh, poor mommy Amy;(

May the next months pass quickly and there is a light at the ending of the toliet bowl cover!

Yeah, take heart, there are plenty more women that consider getting themselves and the baby bathed and maybe the dishwasher unloaded a big accomplishment for a day! (I'm one of them). I am constantly learning that I have to let go of expectations and just do the best I far that's been enough! Being a mom is more about loving well than having a spotless house! Hope you start feeling better soon. Let us know how your first doc appt goes. Who's your doctor?
