Tomorrow I will have completed 17 weeks of pregnancy! Physically I have been feeling pretty good, though the exhaustion that hits early to mid afternoon is seriously getting in the way of productivity. Today, I’ve been up since 4:30 am, and it’s my day to have the kids (we do a childcare swap– Rachel has the kids on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, our friend has them those afternoons, and I have them either 3 or 6 hours on Thursdays- our friend and I switch off having the long days). I’m already exhausted and I’m really not looking forward to this afternoon. In fact, thinking about it kind of makes me want to cry.
As I write, I’m mostly ignoring a statistics lecture. I don’t really understand it anyway, and the lack of sleep is making it incredibly difficult to focus. Someone remind me why I thought a PhD was a good idea?
