Third trimester

The first week of December is always sad to me when I come in to the office expecting to find the handful of blogs I have been reading daily during NaBloPoMo and – nothing. It’s like everyone says “I blogged all month and you want ANOTHER?” Makes me feel lonely.

I had my glucose tolerance test this morning, which wasn’t nearly as bad as I expected it to be. I think I expected - well, do you remember Children’s Triaminic Cough Syrup? How it was sickeningly sweet and kinda thick and orange and you could handle a spoonful, if you must, but to drink bottle of it… And yet, I had no issues whatsoever. Sure, it was sweet – like flat Sprite, almost (I had the lemon-lime flavor) – but it was certainly manageable. Unfortunately, my doctor’s office doesn’t do blood work anymore – they send everyone to a lab. I had to sit in a crowded lab waiting room with a bunch of older people who had forgotten to wear deodorant this morning. I read (I’m re-reading Scarlett: the Sequel to Gone With the Wind) and watched a little Live! With Regis and Kelly which they had on the TV in the waiting room. I’m pretty sure I passed, based on the fact that I felt fine even after fasting and drinking that stuff – so I’m less worried about that now, yay! I had some low activity yesterday with the baby, which worried me, but she made a showing every once in awhile and then started to go a little crazy at night, as I was settling down. I’ve also been feeling really run down in the last week or so, and have been worried about anemia. So I’m trying to eat more iron-rich foods and some extra Vitamin C (which helps your body process such things) and I think I’m feeling a little better today. (Though I did fall asleep again while Mr. Moose was in the shower this morning.)

I am officially in my third tirmester now and 7 months pregnant - that sounds so much better! I'm very excited to reach this point. I had my third trimester pedicure on Saturday with my mom and Mr. Moose began priming the walls in the nursery yesterday and is almost finished. Yay!

My buddy Nicole on the message board that I frequent went into labor yesterday, so I’m very excited to hear updates on her new baby girl. Congrats, Nicole!
