I keep trying to get back on track, but then I just run out of time in my day.
I am trying to add back in fitness as I just have not felt good lately.
I haven't had morning sickness, but just general queasiness. This feeling should be better after the first trimester, right? I am in Week 10 right now.
Work wise - the school year is off to an ok start. I have a new assistant that is just in a sour mood all the time. She doesn't like the job and that attitude just wears on everyone in the room. We have 8 students (all students with moderate to severe autism) and there is myself and 3 assistants. So, we work in pretty close quarters, and life is great when the team works well together. I have been so lucky to have that for the past 3 years. I am thinking now- training and level of expertise actually falls under the quality of the team. I can bring my staff up to speed, but I can't change their attitude. Hopefully it will get better or she will just quit. The worst part is that affects the kids.
School wise- in my last class- meaning I am working on my final project. At the school I am at, to finish the requirements for the Masters- you do a capstone project. It is like a thesis, but...different. It is sort of like an applied project that you can usually implement in the field. I am hoping to do a series of parent training that we can actually use this year.
School should be done next month, and by then I will be out of my first trimester. Hopefully I will stop wanting to sleep all the time around then too!

Oh, and I have gained about 5 pounds already. That is a lot fast, I just feel so bloated all the TIME. I am trying my best to eat healthy, but I think it is because I can't workout as much as I usually do. I am so nervous that when I go home later this month that I am going to hear a lot of crap from my family about the weight gain. Otherwise, I am trying not to stress about it. I just need to be healthy, and not stress over it. The baby deserves it., as someone who is always trying to lose weight, this is a really hard thing to do!

    It's hard to be healthy for someone else when we can't even find time for ourselves, but don't give up and keep working at it. I know you can do it!!!

    Your school project sounds great, I can't wait to hear how it turns out. It's so exciting that you're almost done!!!

    As for your family--we all want to please our families, but right now the baby is more important, so whatever they say doesn't matter.

    Hope you can find time to at least go for a walk, I think that would help some of your stress, too. Take care of yourself, babe, and keep working at it!

    I'm 13 weeks and have gained 8 pounds. Try not to stress ok? Your sickness should get over soon (with my 1st I was sick until week 16, my second was 12 weeks, and this one is only on some days, but pretty much over), then you can resume working out and it will be easier to eat healthy!
