5 Weeks, 5 Days

First, I would like to preface this post with the following statement I am not complaining. I am merely documenting my symptoms and telling my story. I am delighted to have symptoms. And grateful to be pregnant.

I was so tired today, even my facial expressions and my mannerisms were sluggish. I was late to work - not because I overslept, had a bad hair day, or couldn't find anything to wear. No, I was late because I couldn't physically move any faster.

I came home at lunch to take a nap and slept for about an hour. And am thinking about taking a pillow with me to work tomorrow - not to sleep at my desk, no, that would be wrong. But because if I sleep in my car at lunch, I would save the 7 minute drive each way for additional napping.

We had our final foster care class this evening, and I was sad to see everyone go. It was such a nice group. Our home visit is now scheduled for September 11th. The to-do list is getting shorter, but we still need to try to make a little progress every day so that everything gets done in time. My big concern now has moved from the basement railing (which has two coats of stain and is in need of a third before DH installs it) to the 3-hour first aid class that nobody seems to offer. I forgot to ask our recruiter about that tonight, but will definitely remind her we still need that on the 11th. We're so close!

I was exhausted like that with my pregnancy with Ben. I probably slept 18 hours a day on the days that I was able.

Good luck with your home visit! Good job on your to-do list!!
