So Very Tired

I can't believe how tired I am. Almost all of the time. I am a pretty sprightly person, in daylight(especially sunny daylight). So much so that I rarely nap. In fact, I usually know I am getting sick when I have the desire to nap, because it is so rare.

But, being pregnant is making me think of naps fondly.

I am also full of twinges, pings and small cramps. I am trying to relish each sign, each mild discomfort, as a sign that things are going well.

I was a bit of a grump last night when my brother(one of only IRL people who knows we are pregnant) called to congratulate me on my 2nd beta. After getting off the phone with him I realized something. We are more likely to stay pregnant than not. The odds are for us. That is a scary thing to say/write. All my mild superstitions come out, rampant. Knock on wood, whisper....

My clinic wants me to do one more beta, since my first was so "early" they are weird, it was 15dper. Oh well, another early waking day for me. Tomorrow will be 19dper.

I am going to be sleeperonymous rex this weekend! And, I am seeing a BUNCH of friends, and have to keep it all secret. Mr. S comforted me(when I said someone might notice my newly enhanced upper part) by saying "they'll probably just think you've gained weight."


  1. Instead of gaining weight, how about a new bra? I hope you get lots of rest and fun friend time.

  2. Congratulations again Poppy! I'm so thrilled for you both. Get lots of sleep and enjoy all the growing changes that come with impending motherhood! :)

  3. Hi Poppy,
    You are growing your seeds! I'm so pleased things are moving along so positively. Growing sees is arduous work - take good care of yourself first and have fun smiling secret smiles with Mr. S.

  4. It's really true - you ARE more likely to stay pregnant than not. I'm so excited for you!

    Take it easy, and use that tiredness to be your excuse to lounge around. You aren't missing anything. In TCM, the kidney essence is what nourishes the reproductive system, and kidney is restored between 4-7 pm, so my TCM doc always said to rest for at least an hour during that time. Now I "prescribe" that to all my pregnant clients.

    Love to you and Mr. S!!!

  5. thanks Martha- I am using the one I bought last time.

    Babyplease- I shall strive to enjoy.

    Maya- thanks, I am glad you know. Yes, I have to remember that growing seeds mean working insides.

    Evergreen- oh, that is good to know! Makes me feel better about lounging around and reading!
