The past few days I haven’t had much time to really think about blogging… I mean really, if you couldn’t tell, yesterday my post was kind of like “Wahm bam, thank you ma’am” I didn’t feel like adding more than my raw journal entry, and that’s what we got. To be honest, my eyes were drooping and my head nodding off by the time I hit “publish.”
When I woke up this morning I read it over again, praying I didn’t have spelling mistakes. I didn’t, just a sentence left half-written: “I almost bought a First Response early detection test but.”
….Yea, that’s how I left it. Oh dear. Yes, I’ve completed the sentence now in case you want to re-read the post.–I know you were dying to know the rest of that thought.
Oh well, that’s how it gets sometimes right?
I’m not going to lie, it has to do with the fact that I can’t stay up past 10 lately. In fact, I just woke up from a 3-hour nap. Part of the cause could be because my husband was watching golf–Perfect napping television… Or the fact that our couch is very comfortable… But every day this week?
I know chronic sleepiness is a pregnancy symptom, and I’m not implying that I’m pregnant, but instead wondering if it’s possible that when that time comes, these non-symptoms will intensify with the real symptoms.
For example… I get random cravings. I guess it’s normal for every woman every now and then to want a taste of chocolate RIGHT NOW…But sending my husband out for a late night run for hot dogs and donuts doesn’t sound like the “Average-Jane” situation to me… Or does it? What about oranges and funnel cake? Tacos and chocolate-covered strawberries? Fried chicken and watermelon… (Ok, maybe the last one isn’t so weird).
All of these random combinations are things I have craved recently and felt like I must eat it right then! It would be nice to at least have the excuse of pregnancy to want such things at such random times but I don’t.–And it only makes me worry my hungers will get weirder and intensify when I am pregnant.
And what about my sleepiness and strange intense dreams? Will getting pregnant automatically throw me into the realms of dreamless narcolepsy?
…Or perhaps I’ll get lucky and everything will turn around like the Mad Hatter table in Alice in Wonderland where all reason and logic–Normal things, are backwards–Once I’m pregnant I’ll never be sleepy and I’ll eat normal things.. Healthy things. Oh how that would be nice.
Did you have crazy cravings before you were even pregnant? Did they go away after you were? How about sleepiness? Am I crazy?
