So, I found out I was pregnant last week and my productivity has gone down the tube. I’m not drinking ANY caffine. I’m NOT a coffee drinker but I did drink Pepsi at work. So I gave that up (which wasn’t too hard since I did that before for wedding dieting). But the thing is if I really lost my focus I would have a Pepsi to get back on track.
Now all I’m thinking about is what I have to do to my home (organization, decluttering etc) to get it ready for a baby. Its my first pregnancy so I’m also reading all the pregnancy dos and don’ts. I’m also trying to figure out what i need to buy. Reading all sorts of attachment parenting books etc. And work… can’t seem to hold my attention.
I don’t know if its because I’m pregnant and nesting is apperently kicking in or the lack of caffinee or the excitment and terror of having our first child. Also I’m freakishly tired all the time and I seriously want to go to bed early every night.
Is anyone else going through this?
@JaneDomani: Absolutely. I’ve been so spacey since we found out – actually, it’s happening to my husband, too. So much to think about, plan, and be aware of. It’s a huge change!
I’ve found that if I try and divide up my time – allow baby research until 9 and the periodically check the boards over the coard of the day – it works best. But yeah – Monday & Tuesday were COMPLETE write offs haha
@JaneDomani: It’ll get better. I was super excited/nervous/etc. when I first found out. I wanted to read and know everything and wanted to start shopping asap. I was also SUPER tired all the time. Now I’m 16 weeks and things are better. Still excited but not like I was before and can concentrate on other things, like work. I’m definitley not as tired, which is great. I actually haven’t even started shopping or planning the nursery yet. We’re waiting til the new year.
I am super spacy too. I am 13 weeks and cant think but not because I cant stop thinking about baby stuff but because my energy is gone. Its horrible!
