Ok, so you remember how I was supposed to do 4 miles yesterday and 2 miles today? Wellll...that didn't happen. You wanna know why? Because the only symptom I get while pregnant hit...I lose any and all energy and my body focuses 100% on building the baby.
You know when you stay up really late and you get so tired that no matter how hard you try you can't keep your eyes open? Yeah, that's what happens to me during the first trimester. The only thing is...it happens at the weirdest times of the day. Today for example, I got up around 5am to take my mom and dad to the MTC before they head off to Sierra Leone, West Africa next Tuesday, and on my way home I just couldn't keep my eyes open. It just hit me like a ton of bricks. I was able to get home alright around 8:30, but once I got home and sat on the couch...boy...I was OUT. I was out about as much as a momma of 3 can be (sleeping with one eye open, ya know?) and slept until about 12:30. I'm glad my MIL is here cause I totally needed help today. It was insane!
When I got up at 12:30 I was still drained, but I needed to get things done. I had to switch the laundry and get the kids fed and down for naps. I did all that and it took every last ounce of energy I had. I ended up going back to sleep on the couch until about 2:30. I kept thinking, "I need to run...I need to run..." and then a couple seconds later I'd think, "Are you crazy? You can barely do the laundry." Soooo...after a crazy day of being totally drained I took the kids to the park cause I promised B we'd keep learning how to ride the bike. It probably wasn't the best idea (tired momma=very little patience), but she did alright. I'm sure it's going to take longer than a week to teach her (Any tips would be helpful!), but it's all good.
So, now I'm hoping to go to bed early so I can get up and do my run and work on cleaning out the garage tomorrow. Fun, fun!
