Double Whammy

For the first time in my life, I had to think about how to spell the word "whammy".  I'm guessing that I spelled it correctly because the little squiggly red line didn't show up underneath it.  Anyway...

I have a few questions for different types of people.  
First, a question for everyone:  Have you ever experienced jetlag?  
Second, a question for women:  Have you ever been pregnant?  
And now narrowing the field a bit, a third question for pregnant women:  Have you ever experienced jetlag while you were pregnant, specifically that 1st trimester?

When Thomas asked about how tired I was when pregnant with Isaiah, I used to describe it as the kind of tired that you feel with jetlag; you know, that just not quite able to function tired that lasts for a few days, depending on the severity of the time difference.  So now I'm at a loss of how to explain this, except that every part of my body feels like it weighs 500 pounds, which is a lot when you combine it all.

I think I'm losing my mind...but it's for a great cause!

That doesn't sound fun! I've had jetlag as the sleep-deprived mom of a newborn, but not while pregnant... Hope you're back up and running soon!

I love that last line. A "great cause" indeed. If Jesus tarries, who knows what powerful blessing will come from the contribution of the one now growing in your body.

"A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world."

You forgot to add that you have a head cold on top of being pregnant and feeling the affects of jet-lag. My prayers are with you.
Love Mom

After I had Jake, my married friends without kids ask if I was as tired as they say you can get. I told them it was another level of exhaustion I didn't know existed. Sounds like there might be another level of which I don't care to ever experience! Hope you can get can some rest!
Love, Beth

I am so sorry that I have been so out of the loop. Many things in the "front of my face" have kept me away from the blog-life. I am so excited to her about the new-life-within! Congratulations! You are such an amazing person, and an amazing mom: I know that you are going to be GREAT!

I can't imagine: jetlag and first trimester weariness?! Unfathomable- you have my utmost respect for enduring!
