fall lineup

My Fall schedule and what it equates to for a pregnant girl whose always tired and has to obsessively eat every couple of hours for fear of becoming totally nauseous and puking up the next item that goes into her stomach only moments after consuming it.

Monday: 12–2:15 & 5:30–9:40 p.m.
Tuesday: 4:30–9:40 p.m.
Wednesday: 12–2:15 & 5:30–9:40 p.m.
Thursday: 4:30–9:40 p.m.

What it all means.

Get up between 8:30 & 9:00 am. Because I'm super tired, want every minute of sleep time I can get and inevitably will have gotten up between 3 & 4 a.m. to empty my mysteriously full bladder. Instantly eat breakfast which is ALWAYS a bowl of Cheerios with milk and a bit of sugar. Why? I know I can keep it down.

If it's Monday or Wednesday: Shower at 10 a.m. and eat LUNCH at 11 a.m. Currently Chicken or Beef Ramen noodles—again, because I can keep them down. Go to work. Come home, eat a snack, lay down on the couch for a half an hour, make dinner and eat by 4:15 p.m. Nothing to risky...I think you know why. Go back to work. Come home at 10, have a snack, talk to Josh and go to bed.

If it's Tuesday or Thursday: Eat lunch and snacks whenever the mood strikes. Skip the nap—because there is no good time to nap. Shower by 2:30 p.m. Make and eat DINNER by 3:30 p.m. Go to work. Come home at 10, have a snack, talk to Josh, and go to bed.

My current favorite things? Days when Josh gets home early so we can eat dinner together—albeit at 3 or 4 p.m. The weekend (for obvious reasons) because we can actually have a real home cooked meal together at a normal dinner hour like 6 or 7 p.m. Why I'm happy that I'm not working first thing in the morning this quarter? Puke factor.

Tim—It's a 4 hour & 10 minute class, but I have office hours for an hour before the class starts.

oh pixie, it'll all get better! Trust me...it's not this bad the entire 9 months!!

kewhy—I sure hope so. I have to leave for work in a half an hour and I'm questioning whether or not the spaghetti I ate at 1:30 was such a good idea. Now, where are my saltines?

I honest to god left a comment before-don't know where it's gone. And now I can't remember what I'd said

Yikes...so this pregnancy thing...kind of a big deal, huh?

Nobody said...

If it makes you feel any better, I also get up between 3 & 4 am to empty my mysteriously full bladder. I hope I'm not preggers, that would be really bad.

Mel said...

Awww it will get better! But by then it will be difficult to breathe. The only thing I miss about being preggers is the feeling of the baby moving inside you, there is nothing that compares to that.

Ugh...that's a tough schedule. I hate not being able to spend time together. When my hubby and I were on opposite schedules it was rough. Are you going to keep working after the wee one arrives?
