I am really upset right now.
I donno if it's my hormones, or missing my husband-he's away on business for 2 mths.
But I am having major back pains and I have come to realize that I have to quit belly dancing. It hurts me too much. I also only had to go to 4 more classes in karate to get my next belt and I just can't do it. NOw I've lost mths of training.
I miss getting a sweat on! I miss working out, I miss running, I miss the fun and the people at karate. And I miss my husband.
I don't have any energy or any 'get up and go' and I'm so used to being active this is killing me. All I want to do when I get home from work is eat. Then I don't feel like leaving the house. Then I get mad at myself because I stayed on the couch watching tv all night, didn't even make my lunch.
It's so nice outside her now, butt I don't feel like walking by myself, so boring!! Argh! I signed up for pre natal aquafit but it's only one night a week and I keep missing it because I have tickets to the hockey playoffs and the games keep falling on the same night! And the pool will be closed for 2 mths this summer for reno's. *sigh*
I know I can go back afterwards but I don't want to get FAT! Then spend a year trying to loose weight when I don't know how easy it will be to work out with a new baby. Urgh. Just feeling frustrated & upset right now. And selfish. I guess I'm feeling selfish too. It's only another 24 weeks. And I'm worried dh will never be here with his new job.
I guess it's a few things getting to me right now.
Don't even get me started on work & my boss who is not supportive of this pregnancy. He even made some innapropriate comments about the baby that had me in tears. It was very hurtful.
Hopefully tomorrow things will look up. Thanks for letting me vent gals
Growing a person sure is hard work. Physically and emotionally!
Sorry to hear that!!! I do understand what you mean and a little of how you feel, although i am not in the second trimester like you are, im finding pregnancy a little harder then i thought and it is having an effect on things in my life-im really really sick everyday and all i do is sleep and eat small snacks, i feel sick every 30 mins, i went for a drive with DH last night (just to get out!) and felt sooo sick from the motion of the car it alll came out in a plastic bag i had(sorry TMI)-i cant even go for a simple 10 min drive!!. I really really cannot wait until the birth, and like you want to get back into shape also, but i know it'll all be worth it, its hard to see that sometimes. Sorry your DH is away, that must be hard also, and that your boss is like that!!

I'm sorry things are a bit gloomy for you girls and I know that this is what everyone will be saying to you ... try to remain focused on the end picture and feel happy that you have the opportunity to get there. We are soooo lucky to be pg and finally achieved one of our many goals!

awww...I finally got to reading this...I know how you feel though hun!! I have felt the same way...I was so excited to be pregnant finally and was looking forward to it all and then came to the realization at how hard and un-fun it can be sometimes. Gaining weight for me has been hard, especially since I spent a year and a half getting into shape again, slacked off during the holidays and then got pregnant before I could get back to the way I was...I am also a recovering bulimic...which is a struggle at times, but now I HATE throwing up from m/s and even though I am in the second trimester now and almost 18 weeks I am still battling the queasies...Hang in there!! We will all get each other through it!! and if you ever need to vent you know we are here! You can PM me too
