nope -- still hasn't hit me yet

Heading to the bathroom for the twenty-fourth time today, I realized that this whole pregnancy thing hasn't really hit me yet.  I am very excited to tell people and talk about it, but in reality it's not much different than when I'd daydream about what it might be like to be pregnant.  I'm not sure if that's because it's so early, or because I'm not sick yet.  The one thing I have definitely felt is lethargy.  I am so tired from the moment I pick my head up from the pillow until the moment I lay it back down.  I am ready for several naps in the day, even though the work fascists current workplace standards frown upon naps.

I am definitely looking forward to the ultrasound Friday -- it feels like a big milestone after a week and a half of no blood tests; clearly, I need progress reports.  I have found there is only so much pregnancy info out there, though.  Between my emails from Fit Pregnancy, WhatToExpect and the American Pregnancy Association, I know what part of our baby is growing every second, and what I can expect in the next few days.  I can't imagine how people did it before, without a constant reminder of everything hitting the inbox at the same time. 

Also, why on earth did no one warn me about the bloating?  It's not a great look for me, I'm sorry to report.

More updates as pseudo-interesting things occur.
