Since C is still at her sleep study until later this afternoon, I thought I would take on our gratitude post. Yay, my first one! This week I’m grateful for:
- Getting a lot of my energy back. I didn’t realize how tired and unproductive I had been in the first trimester until I’ve felt more energetic recently. This morning I cleaned the house for 3 hours. C has been taking on extra housework since I was feeling so tired and sick. I hope this means I’ll be able to take back some of my cooking and cleaning tasks.
- I’m feeling more comfortable about coming out to others about the pregnancy since we’re on the cusp of the second trimester. I have an appointment to meet with my supervisor and our research center manager on October 22nd. I think once I tell a few people at work I’ll feel a little less stressed at work. I’m also working on drafting a Facebook private message to send to about 30 of our friends. I’m actually feeling pretty excited to share this news with a wider circle of folks.
- For C, who is the best partner a pregnant man can have! 🙂
