19 Weeks: So Tired

Over the last 2 weeks I've started to get nauseous again. Not every day and only when I get really hungry. It's really annoying. It's not as bad as when I was in my first tri, but it's still inconvenient and uncomfortable.

Back aches: I've always had back problems but never any with my lower back. Oh, how that has changed. It's now my whole back and my lower is so much worse. My Chiropractor says that everything moves so much while your pregnant that you go out all the time. I can attest that that is true.

I feel her move more and more. She is much stronger so I'm feeling more of the smaller movements. I love it. It makes me so happy.

Tired: I am SO SO tired. SO tired. Especially today. It seems like it just get's worse. I get more and more tired as each day goes on. I wake up and not even an hour later I'm ready to go back to bed. And getting out of bed is such a chore! But it always takes me about 10 minutes to fall asleep, but once I'm asleep I'm OUT for at least an hour and a half. It's so hard to wake up again! I feel like I can't get anything done. My Chiro gave me some pills, all natural, because that's what Chiropractors do. Those are supposed to give me energy. I've taken them for two days - I didn't today - and I'd say they worked for about 2 hours. So, I should probably be taking them all morning so I can actually get some stuff done. It's ridiculous. Jaren is so good about it. It's taken me FOUR days to get the laundry done and I still have to fold the last 2 loads! I love him to death for spending all of Monday morning helping me clean. The house got clean! Something that hasn't been done for quite some time. I just hope I can keep it up. I am nervous for my 3rd tri because your supposed to get energy BACK in your second tri and I've lost it. I was fine in my 1st. I guess I can only hope I'm backwards and I'll hit my third and just be bouncing all over the place.... but I really don't see that happening.

Here is my 19 week picture! I really feel like I'm posting pictures of me all the time. I hit the new weeks every Tuesday and that's when I take the picture. I should probably start posting the same time each week.

I still have to post about my NEW couches!!! (I'm in LOVE) And yes, there is a preview up above in that picture.

I will probably never get out of bed, when I'm pregnant.

Whitney R said...

Kristina - most days I spend half the day in bed. It's the only time I think you have a valid excuse. So I say take advantage!

You look great! And hey it is okay of you are slacking in the cleaning, you have a person inside of you who obviously is saying "Mom I think you need some more sleep!".

I remember being so very, very tired during my first pregnancy. I took lots and lots of naps too. Enjoy being able to take them now because you won't be able too as much with each pregnancy after. Your other kids take up all your sleeping time.

I am sorry:( I hope things get better. Even though I hate going to work every day I think it's good because it forces me to get out of bed and I think being so busy helps me not feel so tired. I still crash early every night. Keep exercising, I bet it will help!

Oh man! You are beautiful :)

All my good cleaning habits flew out the window with my first pregnancy...unfortunately, they have never returned.

Whit your couches look nice!!! :) I love the pillows too. You're looking cute and little still :) I posted a prego pic of myself so you can stop bugging me now! ;)

Lena Gilbert said...

Maybe you need to be on some iron. Has your dr. done your prenatal labs yet?

Teresa said...

What? There's a baby in there? NO!
You look AWESOME! So sorry you've been feeling so....pregnant:0) I felt the same way with all of my pregnancies. No FUN!. Take care of yourself!

Danger Cat said...

LOL, maybe I wasn't so tired all the time with Rox because I drank Diet Dew all the time, maybe that is her problem...

eek, I was only nauseous in my second trimester so I feel for you! The back aches do suck but you can buy a maternity support belt at BabiesRUs [or wherever] and it seriously helps LOTS!!

Can't wait to see your couches! My leather sectional has two big rips on each arm-rest, ugh...
