The Case of the Vanishing Energy

When pregnant with Emily and Andrew, I was determined to continue working out and eating semi-healthy.  Or, at least continue eating once the vomiting let up.

With this pregnancy, I have transformed into a slug.  I have no energy. None. When I come home from work, I lay on the couch and won't move until bedtime.  Sometimes, I walk in and head straight to bed.  On the weekends, I do nothing but sleep and watch football.  Every little activity wears me out.  Walking up the stairs starts a vomit fest.

But the truth is, I have no motivation. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I think of all those lost pregnancies and feel like I deserve a break.  7 pregnancies in 3 years is intense.  I don't have much to give this time around and don't really want to give anything.

Eventually I will return and write about something that has nothing to do with pregnancy.  As soon as I stop feeling dizzy when I look at a computer screen.

For now, if you would like to keep in touch, you could always visit me while I lay on the couch with Ben and the kids serving me. (Hey, if you could live like a Queen would you change anything?)


  1. Wish I could visit, but I too have zero energy. I'm shocked at how much less I feel capable of this time around. But, a comfy couch is divine. And you do deserve a break. Take care!

  2. If rest is what you crave, then that's what you should do! You have the rest of your life to be energetic!

  3. Sending virtual waves to you on your physical couch.


  4. Feel better soon, Amber! Nice that the kids are old enough to fetch and carry, right? :)

  5. Feel better soon. Thinking of you. For now, just be. We will be here when you are ready.

  6. I would totally come and clean your bathroom for you if I was closer :) You deserve to rest!
