Butt is officially kicked

Oh. My. God. I have never been so exhausted in my life! Just staying awake and somewhat energetic and animated today was almost more than I could handle. All of the kids were bouncing off the walls because it was the first day back from a three week break, my classroom smelled like tacos (have I mentioned that I have a major aversion to Mexican food?), and all I wanted to do was to put my head down on my desk and take a nap. We'll see how tomorrow goes, but I'm not expecting it to be much better.

I hate to say it, but as much as I disliked my old job, it would have been soooooooo much more conducive to pregnancy. I had a private office with a door I could close at any time to take a short nap, my work was almost completely desk-based, and (best of all) I didn't have to wait until lunch for a bathroom break. Well, I guess I can't have my cake and eat it too.

Commiserating with you because I did hypermeisis in the classroom. It was a wreck. Especially because I wasn't telling people. I lost my voice from all the vomiting, I would have to run out of the room without warning. I even vomited into a trash bin under the desk a few times. Totally gross.

My advice--tell them you forgot something in the xerox room. You run out to the loo, vomit, and grab a blank sheet of paper on your way back. I had a huge stack of blank sheets of paper by the end of the week :-)
