Seriously, I am so sick of being moody. I hate it. Between the moods and the complete inability to focus or be productive, I have never felt so useless in my entire life. Non-Pregnant Kimi would simply go for a walk or get some exercise to shake the moody/foggy blues, but this round-ligament pain is unbelievably restrictive.

On a related note, I have no idea how the heck I am going to get through the next three months of work without losing my mind. Every day seems excruciatingly long, my ribs hurt from sitting, I'm not getting any "real" work done because I can't get any measure of focus or productivity to stay with me. Heck, at this rate, I really worry if I'll have a job to come back to after maternity leave if I can't get myself together and do some solid work. That alone is really stressful to me. I keep wanting to put in a few nights of overtime but by the time my regular hours are finished, all I want is some supper and my easy-chair. I'm weeks behind in my email and panicking. I have a week off at Christmas that I'm hoping will refocus and revitalize me. I really don't want to play the pregnancy brain card but it's the honest truth. I hate excuses.

What do you do for work? Maybe you can set aside an hour in the morning and an hour in the afternoon to respond to emails?

I know what you mean, I feel zoned out and unmotivated a lot of the time too. But, you have to do what you have to do to keep your job!

I'm in HR. I think I need to set aside a whole morning - maybe Friday - to blitz through the emails and get ahead of them a bit. C'mon Dec 23rd!!!!

Hey, I work in HR too! It's pretty slow this time of year for me. Hopefully it will slow down for you too!

Man, I totally feel you there! I am so scattered, and my brain is SO baby focused right now...and that's with the holidays to deal with. I can only imagine it's going to get 1000 times worse once the holidays are over and the only thing to prepare for is baby!

Sorry you feel that way. Sometimes the moods get me to, but its my family who gets it.

I can't work, have been at home since 15 weeks. I work at UPS, load trucks, so I have to be able to lift 70 pounds unassisted. I am soooooo bored and my houe is soooo clean. ughhhh. I dont really go anywhere, so I feel housebound, and the moods get me sometime.

Go easy on yourself! Your doing 2 full time jobs! Growing a baby takes a tremendous toll physically and emotionally. Doing a job on top is pretty much superhuman stuff! No wonder your tired and falling behind a bit. I think the time off at Christmas will do some good. The holidays are busy but try and get some pampering in. Get a prenatal massage, hit the salon, whatever you really enjoy. I guess I'm saying make some time for just you. It'll do wonders for you!

Hang in there and hopefully with everyone preoccupied with the holidays, no ones probably even noticed your not 100% at work right now. I doubt anyone is

Thanks everyone! Jodie, I think I'm going to indulge in prenatal spa day over Christmas I desperately need my hair done and I bet a massage would feel great. I also told DH that I won't be travelling out of province to see his extended family like we normally do at Christmas. I just really need every minute I can get to myself, and sleeping in a relative's spare bed does not appeal at all!

I feel a bit better now after taking an hour to tackle some email this afternoon - thanks Kelly!

hang in there. I feel the same way.....I lack motivation and there have been several deer in the head lights look scenarios....I swear I have a brain, I just sometimes forget to use it during the hours of 9-5.....there have also been days where it is so very tempting to just put my head down and hope nobody comes into my little corner. I just feel so used and abused....

Good luck, I hope you get tons and tons done and feel so much more accomplished on Friday.
