I've been having a slight inspiration issue the last week or so. And when I do get an idea, it's usually complaining and I don't want my blog to turn into that.
et's just say that so far, it hasn't been exactly "fun" to be pregnant. I am extremely excited and relieved, but I'm not enjoying it yet.
Take a look at my Sunday to see how things have changed.
7:45 - Let dog out. She also gets to come sleep with us for a bit. (Mr. GG is an early riser. I prefer getting up around 9 on weekends. So this wake-up time is a change, but due to the husband and the dog, not the babies.)
9:00 - Actually got out of bed. Mr. GG was nice enough to take Stella for a bike run which left me some peace and quiet. I convinced him not to go to spin today by agreeing to walk to our favorite breakfast spot.
9:15 - Walk a little over a mile to breakfast. Today is marathon day in my city and they run pretty near our house so we walked along the route to breakfast and watched while we ate. (So much easier than actually running! I think I could manage a half one day, but I don't think my joints could handle the full thing.)
Breakfast was delicious like I expected. I'm going to a tell you about it because I'm really into food right now - well some of it.
I break the yokes of my over-medium eggs with one of my slices of wheat toast. I've done this since I was little. My mom called it "dunky eggs." Then I make the most delicious open faced sandwich ever. I put both eggs on top of my remaining piece of toast and then add bacon on top (extra crispy). The end product is messy, but delicious! Oh! And I also order 1 pancake on the side to get my sweet fix.
10:30 - Walk home. This portion is almost entirely up very steep hills. I hate hills and my aerobic stamina seems to evaporated to nothing over night. I managed though.
My entire goal for today was to clean the house. I've been putting it off for far too long and have baskets worth of clean clothes that need to be put away.
11:00 - But I was too worn out to clean right when we got home. It seems I need a nap and a meal every 2 hours! I slept until 2:30! (Same thing yesterday.) These quads have got me utterly exhausted!! At least I got. My exercise in.
2:45 - I woke up hungry, but nothing sounded good. That's a new recurring problem. I had a hard enough time deciding what to eat before being pregnant - now it's impossible! So eventually I ate 1 Bonne Bell cheese, a rice cake with peanut butter and jelly (my new favorite) and some lemonade. This lasted something like 5 minutes - then I was wondering when dinner would be ready.
Mr. GG really is an awesome husband and one of my favorite things he does is to make dinner on Sunday nights. I usually am really stressed on Sunday nights planning lessons for the week and grading papers, so he makes dinner. And he's a good cook! Tonight's menu was filet with grilled veggies and baked potatoes. Yum.
4:00 - I got most of my cleaning done with no less than 4 snacks along the way. Fruit always sounds good so that's just about all I got at the grocery store. I watched Holmes on Homes while cleaning. Love that show!
7:00 - We FINALLY eat! Damn baked potatoes take so long! I really can't handle not eating right now (not that this was a strong point earlier in my life). I get a headache, get tired, cranky - it's just a mess.
8:00 - Now.
I really do think that the tiredness and incessant hunger is a result of the quads. I'm also definitely getting some nausea and aversions. I basically feel some version of bad all the time. I'm hoping it won't last forever and I'm definitely glad that school is almost out because it's hard to function at work.
I've been doing a lot of research on quads and selective reduction so I'll be sharing that controversial info soon. Yay for comment moderation!
Lastly, thanks for sharing my news with LFCA whomever did so! If you are here from there, welcome! The next fews months are going to be quite an adventure!
