Forever sleep*

I am 5 weeks and 1 day pregnant today.

This is the part of pregnancy where I spend most of my time struggling to stay awake and not vomit.

I look like I have a case of the swine flu and my house looks like actual swine live in it.

I'm doing the best I can but oh my god, all I want to do is sleep and cry and vomit and eat buffalo wings and then start the whole thing all over again. It's pathetic.

I'm not even trying to complain. I signed up for this. I knew that for me the early weeks are wretched. I guess I just forgot how wretched. And I'm starting to think there's more than one baby in there causing havoc with my body. At least if that's the case I'll have some kind of explanation for why my body feels this wrung out.

I would like to explore this further but for now that cracker I just ate is looking like it wants to come back up. Ugh.

*Bonus points to anyone who knows where this is from.

Four years ago today we had a bug infestation and Joseph played me like a violin.

Oh, you poor baby! Nothing like the sickness of pregnancy!! When do you find out how many you've got cooking in there?

Hope you feel better soon!!

Just because you signed up for this doesn't mean you don't have the right to express your discomfort! And God knows pregnancy induced exhaustion and nausea are like nothing else! Hope it will pass quickly for you and that you will get some babying while you're suffering. :)

I'm sorry to hear you're so sick. But yay! Yay! Yay for pregnant.

I'm hoping for triplets.
