I’ve been very ‘lazy’ recently… I don’t want to leave the house, I don’t want to do much else but binge Netflix and knit. As I explain in my ‘about’ section, knitting’s been the only consistent thing in my life.
Crochet was something I learnt as an adult and is loved just as much as knitting.
But I’m not just being lazy for no reason, I’m in my first trimester and as with every pregnancy I’ve had, I get very sick and exhausted. With my daughter I threw up multiple times a day, all day and would carry sick buckets around with me. I pretty much remember lying on the sofa all day throwing up. Now she’s a toddler and facing the same thing is difficult to deal with, as I feel I’m not giving her the attention she needs.
I managed to get some anti sickness medication from the doctor which honestly has helped big time. But they are drowsy and with how I exhausted I was anyway, I’m not even more like a lifeless potato.
I think people overlook that often the first trimester is the worst! When you’re showing a bump people tend to be kinder to you and more considerate, in these first few months people remind you how ‘pregnancy isn’t an illness’ and when people don’t even know you’re pregnant, while you wait for that 12 week assurance, they wonder why you’re being so different.
Some people don’t realise that while pregnancy isn’t an illness but in those first few months your body is working over time to turn a tiny ball of cells into a little baby, the rush of hormones and dramatic change in your entire body is exhausting and can leave you with no energy at all. Not everyone experiences the same but I guess I do.
So meanwhile as I’m waiting for this part of the pregnancy to pass, I’m making something extra special for my shop. I can’t wait to see how this turns out, thank you for reading my little rant!
