I’ve been waiting awhile for that magic second trimester nesting phenomenon to start up. At my last doctor’s appointment my doctor even said, “You are going to have so much energy these next few weeks your husband isn’t even going to know what to do with you.”
So I’m waiting… and waiting…
I even started to get a little worried about why it hadn’t shown up yet. So I asked on the hyperemesis message board if women with HG ever really get the nesting thing. Pretty much the answer I got was no or that you have a huge list of things you want accomplished, but no energy to do it.
But I started feeling better earlier than most of those women so I’ve been figuring that I’d be different.
I’m still waiting for that energy to show up.
At this point I think that is the most frustrating thing to deal with. Yes I’m still throwing up occassionally, but it’s just something I kind of do and then move on.
My house isn’t as clean as I would like it to be, I have about a million projects I would like to complete before the baby gets here, laundry is piling up, I haven’t cooked a decent meal in who knows how long and all I want to do is take a nap, read a book or knit a little.
So yeah… any day now that energy could just show up and I would be very happy.
