8 weeks

26 Jun

8w0d today – ninth week has started!

Exhausted beyond comprehension. Woke up at 9 am, fell asleep at about 12:30 pm, slept for 2 hours… The only reason for waking up – wanted to pee. Still sleepy. Listen to that belly growling – am hungry, too…

I know, I should be grateful I am not suffering from morning sickness on top of it all, but I guess I am too tired.

I was dreaming today that I had to confess I was pregnant while on a conference call with the headquarters (in the States). Once I went off the line, I (somehow, as it only can be in a dream) was able to hear my boss’ discussion with the US counterparts. The US people were suggesting firing me right away, and my boss was saying that in Canada, firing a pregnant person is not worth the bother, especially for a big corporation.

I woke up with evil thoughts of confessing I am pregnant right away – and stopping all the worries of not being able to perform… for I will become un-fi-rab-le!

No, not gonna do this, of course…

So, am going to make myself a salad… read about 8 weeks (received one update email telling me my baby is the size of a raspberry), and read – or maybe watch a movie…

Am tiiiiiiiiiiiiii-red… Yawn…

    Hey Lady! Congrats on getting to week 9 šŸ™‚ I hope you start feeling more energetic soon! I hear that’s common in the second trimester, only 3 weeks to go! Can you believe you’re that close to the second trimester already? It seems like you JUST got pregnant.

    I hope you get some relief from the stressful dreams too šŸ˜¦ I have crazy dreams as it is, I can’t imagine what it would be like with “pregnancy dreams” thrown in the mix!

    Enjoy the salad, and your movie!

      the NINTH week started, I am at 8 weeks now. And second trimester, according to my book, starts at 14 weeks!

      it’s been only 4 weeks since we found out we’re pregnant – but I do hope some of the energy will start coming back soon. Or I will just miss pregnancy – I’ll sleep through it! šŸ™‚

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, and congrats on being pregnant! I loved those fruit comparisons all through my pregnancy. I have some friends in Canada, and I am soooo jealous of your maternity leave policy.

      yes, I have to say I was shocked when my SIL in the States told me she got something like 5 or 6 weeks… I mean, how are you supposed to breastfeed??? Isn’t that TAKING CARE OF THE FUTURE OF THE NATION, as in breastfeeding helps build immune systems?

    I’m sharing the tiredness with you.. got up at 7.30am today and then fell asleep again at 11.30am!

      I slept a lot yesterday and went to bed early – so today I was actually okay. I am tired, but not overly sleepy. Maybe I should really start going to be super-early. So what if my hubby comes home late? I won’t see him in the evenings sometimes. But I will be well rested. It is more important – for the baby.

    I have to admit, I am so envious of canada’s maternity leave policy. With my recent pregnancy(before my loss) my boss was already talking about how I’d be able to be back to work by easter, and I was only due a day before you! I cannot even fathom how I’d be able to return to work so soon. I wish the US would learn something from other countries around the world and better their maternity leave policy.

    Happy ICLW

      I lived before that in Israel; if I am not mistaken, there it was only 3 months mat leave – and all the kindergardens closed around noon. I still don’t understand how it works. And there are SO MANY PREGNANT women there!

      Maybe, things have changed now? I don’t know. But yeah, Canada rules. In this respect, at least!
