Growing a Baby is Hard Work!

I'm just about 7 weeks along now. Physically I am feeling great, not a bit of nausea. I have been exceptionally tired this past week though. This morning Darren got up before me. I am usually up and out of bed right away without a problem. This morning was rough though. I just couldn't seem to get going. I told Darren I was just going to call in sick. He didn't like that idea. He actually told me I need to save my sick days for when I'm pregnant! What? Hello! I already am pregnant! He can't seem to understand that. He thinks I will only be pregnant when I'm like 7 months along and huge! Its a bit annoying. Darren seems to think I have no reason to be tired. He thinks I spent the whole weekend doing nothing. Well, it was Harry Potter weekend, so I did spend a big portion reading, but I also did the dishes, washed and folded 4 loads of laundry, vaccuumed the house, and went grocery shopping. I think I accomplished a lot. I also exercised for 45 minutes both Saturday and Sunday. That, on top of the fact that I'm pregnant, is a lot of work. I am tired. I just want a little sympathy once in a while. Ok, enough bitching. I'm over it now.

In other news, I think we may have settled on baby names. We have tentatively agreed. Anything can change, so I think I'm going to keep names to myself until we know for sure what we are having. The only sticking point I can see now is that Darren insists our child have 2 middle names. I think its a completely ridiculous notion, but I can see that I will most likely cave first. Darren is waaay too stubborn to budge on anything. :)

    Ok, this is Jami not Priscilla, but I have a comment, so I had to login under P's login. So it is totally normal and understandable to be that tired the first trimester. Everyone is different, and while I didn't feel as tired, I was nauseous instead. But I had a friend at work who would go home each night after work and couldn't do anything but lay on the couch. Her husband took over making dinner and everything, because she was so exhausted. Darren needs to have more sympathy, but unfortunately you probably will only get sympathy from other women who have been pregnant. P didn't understand some of my complaints the entire pregnancy. Non pregnant people will just never fully understand.
