Sometimes I think pregnancy has stolen my muse. I am 11 weeks in and so very tired that there is little I want to do that requires more than on optic nerve. Watching Harry Potter or other things on Netflix, keeping up with the news here in #Ferguson. I have tried painting, tried drawing (get distracted), tried bicycling (bonk in 10 minutes), tried cooking (ugh – really? Eat that?) and, yes, tried writing (such a heavy pen).
I know it’s not nearly as bad for me as other women I know, and some days are better than others. I also have hope that it will get better in the next trimester, but the past several weeks have been a struggle.
I took three naps yesterday, two of them in the car (not while I was driving, obvs).
You know what I really miss? Sushi.
I didn’t expect to miss this so much, but the soft rice and the fish, tangy and creamy sauces – and sake! My OB advised me to not even get vegetable rolls because they’re prepared on the same surface as the raw fish, or something like that.
So I think I’ll have to learn how to make them myself. Any tips or suggestions, workpressers?
