Feeling Gross

I am not feeling well this morning, so I am once again not getting much done. I did a bunch of dishes before sitting down because it was necessary and I knew that sitting would be the end of productivity for the morning. I also managed to shower and do my hair, which is quite a feat because I have to dry my hair straight, then straighten it with a flat iron, and then curl it with a curling iron to give it some shape. This is why I don't often do my hair, but lately I am feeling quite ugly, so doing my hair helps me to feel just a little less hideous.

I have to go to the doctor today which means I will be leaving the boys with Mike's mom. I feel a little bad about it because they are both overtired. Last night was a wretched night with Cody, who did not go to sleep until 10 p.m. and then was up at 3 a.m. begging for water and it seems that was not the only time. It is all a bit foggy to me right now. I know I was up at 4:30 a.m. too, and then 6:30, but I don't remember all of the circumstances. How is this going to go when we have a newborn too, plus Jamie and Cody will be sharing a room? Will they ALL be up? I'm guessing probably yes. Jamie is also out of sorts and has been since yesterday, but I'm not sure what the problem is. He acts very overtired and cries over the smallest things, but when I put him in his crib this morning right after breakfast he played happily in there while I did my hair. As soon as I brought him out, he was grouchy again. I don't know...maybe he needs a break from me or something. He is laying on his back on a blanket on the floor right now, sucking his thumb. I hope he is not getting sick. I wish I knew what his problem is. He is normally happy all the time.

I attempted to clean the fridge yesterday while Mike made supper. I did four shelves and a drawer and then I started to feel faint and had to sit down. I have felt that way ever since. How in the world am I supposed to get anything done around here? I really want this place clean before we go away...especially for my Mom and Dad, who will be staying here. How can I get it clean if I can't even make it through cleaning a whole bathroom or fridge without having an overwhelming urge to sit down? I am only five months pregnant. How will I survive the rest of this?

Anyway, sorry to go on and on about it. I am a little bit discouraged this morning about my lack of energy and my terrible housekeeping skills. I hope this is pregnancy related and not just me being a pathetic human being. I don't even want to go to my appointment today because all I want to do is lay down and rest. Hopefully my appointment will not be humiliating or discouraging. Sometimes medical appointments can be that way. My last one was not so positive for me, and now I'm extra nervous about going back. That is all I have to say for today. No silly stories about things Cody has done or said, or bizarre incidents with my pets. Just another morning at home with the boys.
