What’s Wrong With Me Doctor?

I went to the doctor last week. I just knew there was something wrong with me. I was exhausted all the time, sometimes nauseous, weak, headaches, some days it felt like it took every bit of strength I had left just to bend down and pickup something off the floor – usually a toy or maybe some thrown food. Nothing seemed to help. I was going to bed earlier and earlier but would wake up feeling just as tired as the day before.

So I went to the doctor, told him all my symptoms, I knew there had to be something up. Blood work done…normal thyroid, blood pressure good, no signs of infection, not anemic, which I was almost sure I was, and nope, nothing, nada…. Oh, and not pregnant – before you ask. 🙂

Everything’s normal she said….YOU’RE JUST A MOM.

Never thought I would hear that. I’m grateful everything is ok. But I need to beat this mommy exhaustion, maybe I need to start remembering to take my prenatals everyday like I was told to do, oh and work out like I tell myself I SHOULD do too.

I mean, if there was a reason to be exhausted everyday day, I guess I can’t complain that the only reasons that I am are these two. 🙂
