Soooooo tired

Not a lot to report really: just wanted to check in to let you know that all is well as we reach the beginning of week 17. Mrs T's sickness is now coming in shorter 'waves' (rather than whole days as before) but her tiredness hasn't let up. She took one day off work last week, and has been pacing herself differently since. It's easier now that everyone knows she's pregnant.

I've had some lovely responses at work and at church. I wasn't at the church members' meeting last week, but have heard from several people that our minister (who occasionally comments here as "d") shared the news from the front. He was sharing "church family news", and listed the seven people who are pregnant at the moment. I'm told he left us till last and gave us a dramatic pause - and that the announcement was greeted by a cheer! Aw, shucks.

We're hoping that the tiredness pases to some degree soon. All we've read tells us that Mrs T should be beginning to 'bloom' and feel as healthy as ever during the second trimester. Is that really true? (I've also read that she should go through quite a randy phase as some point. Please let that be true...)

Well, I am still waiting for this second trimester jolt of energy to kick in...

It wouldn't be polite for a lady (like I most undoubtedly am) to comment on my state of randiness. Read that how you may ;)

Hi Treggles,

It was certainly true with my wife. With the 2nd and 3rd trimester comes a surge of energy and good feelings.

It's ironic that here in Boston on the subway (or the Tube, I imagine) people will give their seats up for a woman who is obviously pregnant (i.e. in 2nd or 3rd trimester) but that's not when they need the seat so much! They need to sit down when they are having morning sickness and feel terrible, yet at that point they are not showing, so no one ever offers them a seat.

I like your blog alot.

The clock's great, if only it told the right time.

Randy? The poor thing is exhausted - leave her alone and get used to it!

i was nauseated throughout all my pregnancies, which is not conducive to, ahem, randyness (randiness?). if she's still nauseated at 17 weeks, all i can say is, good luck.

Delphi: Not sure how to read that...

Smarsh: Thanks. I like yours, too.

d: Clock corrected. And don't worry, I'm not pestering her.

Laura: I seem to recall you were going for it rather a lot towards the end...

;o)

Well, I had very little morning sickness my first trimester, but still felt the burst of energy when I hit the second. Now, as for feeling randy? Enh.... even if the feeling is there, the mechanics get more and more difficult. Now in my 3rd trimester, some of the first trimester issues are back. The fatigue, mostly. Still... worth every punch in the stomach I get from the little one.

That is true - at least it was for me. I felt much more energetic and myself during the second trimester.

How sweet about your minister. People have obviously been rooting for you guys!

And you're not shy with your minister, isn't that D? :)

Second trimester has been great for me. The constant nausea cleared up, I could actually stay awake past 8pm, and I finally felt pregnant.

Congratulations.

I think I should start my own blog!

Thanks for nice comments about me as T's minister (not sure about the "sweet" one, though!).I'm not one of those head in the clouds churchy types, actually very ordinary with struggles like anyone else.

Couldn't be more happy for the T's though. It's been a long hard road. They've earned my respect.
