Ray decided today that this will be it for us. Not that I could blame him! Between my 2-, 3-, and 4-hour "naps" lately, the poor guy's been cleaning the house, doing the dishes, laundry and feeding me. I feel like one of the geckos, really. All I do is sleep and eat - and occasionally work.
This week was rather gross, I'll be honest. Working nine to five works well, because I come home, sleep a bit and then spend some time with Ray. But this whole working nights things really throws me off. I'm generally asleep by nine p.m., if possible, and working 'til 11 p.m. really throws me off. Usually, this is just once a week, but I had three night meetings which made for a very long week. And, if you asked Ray, he would say it also made for a rather crabby week for Bethany as well. Poor guy, he's being a trooper.
But, aside from the constant sleepiness, I've been getting a little nasea. I really thought that I could avoid it, but maybe not. No food really sounds apetizing right now and I'm living off apple juice and bananas right now - seriously, I go through a gallon of apple juice every two days.
But, then again, I really try not to complain much -- my pregnancy has thus far been quite easy compared to others' experiences. I haven't been too sick at all.
But, I have been tired. Which brings me to the title of this here entry: single child. OK, other people must buck up a lot better than I do when they're pregnant. I can't imagine going through this and being this tired and also having a 2- or 3-year-old running around the house. Seriously, I think I'm just wimpy!
And weepy. But that's another entry!
Have a good weekend! We're excited here to just sit around and relax all weekend.
