I am 8 weeks along, and am finding myself to be extrememly irritable when I am working at my computer desk. I'll be in the middle of something and just absolutely have to get up and walk or go do something else. I feel so distracted, is all this normal? Oh my gosh I want a donut!

Pretty normal. You should take breaks every so often, anyway... pregnant or not. Stretch your muscles. I have done laps around the hallways of this building before.

Imagine if you had a physically stressing job. That shit sucks.

Just go eat your donut!

In 6 months, you'll be happy to have a job where you can sit.

It's normal. I had the attention span of a 2 year old when I first got pregnant. I also had zero patience for anything.

Yeah, pregnancy brain sucks.  I actually lost a 1.61ct round I had just gotten back from the GIA when I was 6 weeks pregnant with #3.  Preggy brain is like a thick fog that lingers for a few months.
