My daily energy levels have taken a scary nosedive. I’ve been napping incessantly…at home…in my car…after meals. At night, I wake up at random times, uncomfortable and restless. I’m extra sluggish during the day, waddling around in a bit of a fog. I can’t focus or concentrate on one thing for too long; my mind drifts sporadically. I’m losing my marbles!!!
Had a bit of a scare yesterday. In a rush to leave the house, I hurried down the porch steps, lost my footing, rolled my ankle and fell quite hard on the concrete floor. I hit my hip & bottom quite hard, and had a bit of a struggle getting up. After a short while, I realized I could have hurt the baby. Emotions suddenly rushed through me and I started ugly panic crying. I could barely walk on my swollen ankle. I was a hormonal, wobbling wreck.
Long story short, I eventually got to the hospital where the doctor was more concerned for my ankle than anything. I didn’t fall directly on my stomach, nor experience direct trauma to my abdomen area, so he wasn’t concerned for the baby. I went home with a few stretching exercises for my ankle, and much-needed peace of mind.
I’m quite amazed at how easily I can break out into a full-on cry now.
These hormones. They’re no joke.
