Yes you are right!

I re-read yesterday's post and man I must have been really grumpy.

I have to focus on the end result instead of focusing on the negatives. But it is so hard when you are hormonal. I actually cried today when a customer got upset with me on the phone! I just couldn't stop crying!!

The thing I am most struggling with is the complete lack of motivation that I have. I haven't done a load of washing in weeks. I haven't cooked dinner for even longer. And when I get home I just want to lie down. It's really hard to not have the energy to do these simple things.

And even more frustrating is that this lack of motivation is affecting my relationships with my friends. I do not have the energy to call people let alone visit them. I really want to cook dinner for my friend once a week but I can't muster any strength to get close to doing that. When someone invites us for dinner I cringe. I am slowly falling out of my life and I don't like it. But I don't have any energy to stop it.....

But to focus on the good things....I am getting in lots of baths. I have been reading a lot and watching a lot of soppy romantic comedies. I have started a puzzle. I am listening to ABC Radio National a lot which makes me happy. And I am growing a beautiful baby inside me.

However, any tips to combat the lack of energy would really help.......

P.S Thank you to those that left me such kind messages. I felt really special xoxo

Congratulations! How exciting! Now that you are pregnant you are going to receive more advice than you ever have before, so I better give you my two cents too!

Just go with the flow. Simple to say, harder to do. If you are tired just kick back, listen to your body and try not to feel guilty. These feelings will pass. You will probably end up running all around the house cleaning and possibly going for long walks waiting for the baby, so tell others that you are making to most of putting your feet up now.

And the hormones and mood swings, tell your husband you love him but if he doesn't do what you ask when you ask, if he makes a smart comment, if he doesn't be quiet when you give him a look, well, he has been warned that there will be hell to pay! Or was that just my husband....

My poor husband is slowly learning. But I think that no matter how much he learns, while I am pregnant, there will always be something he didn't do. Oh well, may as well have some fun while I have an excuse!
