As I sat here sipping my Vitamin D water (more later), it all the sudden came to me just how much me during pregnancy is like the Seven Dwarf's...
Then I went to Sleepy. Veeeerrrry sleepy. I slept as often as I could, even when I didn't want to sleep, or really shouldn't... like at my desk at work. I quickly mastered putting my hand in my face just right and having a report on my screen, so that at first glance, anyone would think I was just studying an accounting report. I never actually "slept" per say, but I gave my eyes good rest. And I just listened for anyone to come near my cubical. :) So sneaky, I was. I slept every day after work. I'd rush home as fast as I could and sleep for an hour or two. Skyler would come in quietly after he got off work and kiss me on my forehead. I went to bed every night by about 8 pm. I just couldn't last any longer. I had never felt so utterly, beyond exhausted in my life!
Around the time I stopped feeling quite so tired, I had my first appointment with the Doc. Not that I am the Doc, but I see one, so that counts, right?? Plus, I have been learning a TON about pregnancy and myself that I never knew before, so in a way, I am being a Doc to my babe, right?! ;) (Ok, and maybe technically she's not a Doc either...she's a midwife, but still. Whatev. You get the picture.)
Then, I was SOOO Grumpy, and I didn't even realize it. Or maybe I did, and I just didn't care. (My poor poor husband Skyler.) I was the ultimate Grumpus and was not happy about anything!! I hated work, I hated cooking, I hated cleaning, I was grumpy about something every day, it seemed. (All the while, totally thrilled that there was a baby growing in me!! Seriously. I was never grumpy about that.). At my next Doc appointment, she told me that my blood tests came back and I was extremely low in Vitamin D. Shocking, right?! You know, since I live in Oregon and work inside an office all day? Double whammy. She told me to go get a bottle of liquid Vit D right away and drink some water with 6000mg Vit D dropped in it every day. I've been doing this for almost 2 weeks now. And now....
I'm SOOOO HAPPY!!!! Vitamin D has turned my life around!! I seriously have noticed a MAJOR change in my attitude since I've started drinking my "cup of sunshine" every day. I think I'll continue this even after Baby E comes along. It never hurts to have extra doses of happy, right? Nothing bothers me now; not work, not the people I work with, not chores, not anything. :) So if you see me walking around with a big goofy smile on my face for no reason; I'm sorry. I'm not trying to be creepy. I'm just.... happy. *Smiles*
I'm still waiting for Bashful and Dopey to hit me. :) I'll keep you posted and let you know when I've gone full cycle Seven Dwarf's.
Hope everyone else is having as happy a day as I am!
