Until a few days ago, I hadn’t had a drop of energy since before Christmas. It was beginning to become rather depressing. I knew that pregnancy was going to make me tired, but I had no idea it would be to that extent! I hardly even cooked a meal between the time I became pregnant and last week. I wasn’t motivated to exercise. I didn’t even bother to clean the house (don’t judge me). So, not only was I tired and lazy, but add to that the guilt I felt from not eating very healthy and not exercising, plus pregnancy hormones, and my house being in somewhat of a state of disaster, and I was beginning to think I wasn’t going to be too fond of being pregnant.
Just when I thought I couldn’t take it anymore, BAM! My energy is back! I want to bake, I’ve motivated myself to clean house, healthy foods sound tasty again, I’ve been exercising, and I even gave the dog a bath! Yay! I don’t think I could have taken it any longer. I hear the lack of energy will return later though, so I’m trying to enjoy it while I have it.
Maybe it’s because I know it won’t last, or maybe it’s due to the fact I’ve basically been in a state of laziness for three months, but now that my energy is back, I want everything to be done and I want it done now! Mostly, I want the baby’s room put together and finished. We need to paint the walls, get a crib, fix up some furniture, find a dresser or buffet to double as a changing table and probably paint it, and DECORATE! After all, we only have like six months to do everything! Okay, okay…by “we” I really mean “my husband.” I can’t paint the room when I’m pregnant and I’m certainly not handy when it comes to fixing things (I wish I was!)…so that leaves my wonderful, helpful, patient, willing husband! But, I’m sure I’ll be up to the decorating part 😉
Other things I’ve been obsessing over: organizing the cabinets, cleaning out my closet, de-cluttering every room of the house. Is this what they call “nesting?” I don’t know why, but I really hate that term and I hate it even more now that it might apply to me.
Yet, here I am…nesting. *Cringe*
