Quilt show & "Sick & Tired"

Well, I made it to the quilt show on Thursday. It was nice, I'll post a couple photos after I download them off of the camera. (I could do that now, but...)

Who knew that pregnancy could make you so sick & tired? I go from absolute starvation (without any ideas about what I want to eat) to being completely nauseated... (I haven't gotten sick very often - that is a good thing.)

And tired - wow, I have never slept so much so often.

Not much quilting going on around here...

I am hopeful to get a doll quilt bound & some HST's pressed "soon."

Gotta go check on my turkey.

Be grateful you haven't gotten sick to often! Congrats on the baby on the way.

Laura said...

Congratulations!!! I was very ill with all 3 of my children. It is a feeling I will never forget, but they are oh so worth it!

Libby said...

Sleep while you can . . . the hours of good rest are numbered, my friend *s*

Hang in there -- it's worth it! And you feel that way for your entire pregnancy, it's just the beginning that's rough like that.

Oh, so THAT'S the secret! I was wondering what I missed.

Congrats!

You're in for a wild ride. Hang on and have fun!

Congratulations! I didn't know you were pregnant. I have no advice but I'm thrilled for you!

WOO HOOO!! I kinda figured it out, but I didn't realize you officially "came out" with the news!! I'm excited for you and your husband. Take each day one at a time. Congrats!!

That is one of the top secret things we aren't allowed to tell people until AFTER they get pregnant. Sorry. Had to follow the code. Don't worry - it only lasted one trimester for me, and this is your excuse to eat anything and everything you want. My morning sickness was just in the morning, and I just fit it into the schedule. The second trimester and the third I felt extra healthy - with clear skin, that glow, nesting energy, etc.

Greenmare said...

yes it sure does wear you out. I guess it's natures way of getting you ready for motherhood! ;-) Listen to your body and rest when it tells you too. As for eating, try to do that right away too so you don't get sick. I'm glad you aren't sick all the time. I barfed my way through 4 months each with my kids. ugh.

Diana said...

The barfing and the tiredness usually go away by the 4th month, so don't worry. Just take really good care of yourself. Congratulations!

Congratulations, how exciting! I had alot of nausea during all my pregnancies too, but it went away by about the 4th month, and believe me you will make up and more with your appetite after that!!!

Gail said...

Congratulations! That part only lasts for the first few months, so don't worry. Keep us updated!

Karen Dianne Lee said...

thinking of you!

paula, the quilter said...

I thought that was what was happening. Congratulations! Take advantage of the sleep. Soon it will only be catnaps. *grin*

Supermom said...

tired..."who knew?"...
anybody that's been pregnant! It'll be that way until the baby is 9 months old or so! Congrats- it's a roller coaster ride like none other-

Tanya said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Somewhere I missed this post so I'm only getting around to figuring out why you were tired! And that's your SECRET! You kept it very well! Take care of yourself!
