I'm 15 weeks pregnant today which means that I'm roughly 40% through a "standard" twins pregnancy (assuming I deliver at 38 weeks). My energy is starting to come back although I still find that I still need quite a bit of recovery / down time on weekends. In fact, I spent most of this Saturday snug in my bed, sleeping.
Last week was my first week back at work since the holidays. I was happy that it was a three-day week since I'd been living on a completely different schedule where I could nap when I was tired and eat whenever I wanted. Now I have to plan to bring food and water to my meetings so that I don't pass out from hunger and to replace the naps with a lunch hour of doing absolutely nothing. I also need to start leaving work earlier, by 6 latest. I tend to stay at the office until 7 most nights and that definitely didn't help the level of exhaustion I felt last week.
Since I've told everyone, though, I don't think I will feel weird about leaving early. In fact, everyone is encouraging me to get the fuck out of dodge as soon as I can each evening. So starting this week, I'll be cutting out earlier so that I can home and rest more. Of course, that doesn't take into account this evening. I completely forgot that I signed up for a spinning workshop (6:30 - 8:30) months ago so I probably won't be getting home until 9.
In knitting news, I finished one of the two sleeves on the Elven Cardigan (pictures later -- I have to shower now!) and have joined the second ball on Argosy. Also, the yarn from Elann should be arriving either today or tomorrow (YEY!) so I can get started on my baby knitting in earnest. I'll revamp my projects sidebar to more accurately reflect what I'm actually working on and what's on hold in the near future.
Keep growing sea monkeys! Mommy's looking forward to checking up on you next week...
