Jet Lag + Pregnancy = MAJOR UGG

Well I might as well announce it, since it's on my mind and has everything to do with why I'm feeling so uggg lately. I'm pregnant with my 3rd baby; found out the week before I left for Europe in August so I've now completed 2 international trips in the first trimester. Hardly a goal I was ever hoping to achieve. At least I can finally settle down and not travel for at least a month. There's a rumor of a potential trip to London in late November but I'd make it 2 days max. I have Relevant conference at the end of October but I don't consider domestic travel to be challenging.

So back to the jet lag part! Well it's rough! Second day home and husband's already back to work. My day with the kids went very well and I just kept telling myself when they get shrill that they are just happy to see me. Somehow managed to get both in bed by 8:20 so I'm sitting in the dark on the computer to hopefully keep small ones from wandering back out. Our condo is kinda small. Speaking of, not sure how we will fit 3 children into a 2 bedroom condo but I guess it will be okay while they are still small. It does make the clock tick louder on the desire to sell this place!

I find myself eating Granola for dinner because cooked food just doesn't sound good at the moment. Can't seem to eat any dairy which with my usual diet is extremely limiting. Hmmm, maybe I'll add an apple to my dinner.

Okay enough rambling for tonight, I'm off to watch Fringe, very quietly.

So I did figure that one out! I didn't want to ask/say anything...that said, CONGRATS! :D
I cannot even imagine what jetlag and pregnancy are like in combination during the first trimester. Oy!

Congratulations!!!! How exciting!!!

I would offer my assistance in whatever way possible, but not sure how you would feel about that coming from a 'stranger.' Either way, very happy for you and your whole family!
