Yup, we have officially crossed the threshold into the third trimester, and the fatigue and nausea of the first trimester has returned. Gone are the “honeymoon” weeks of 14-26 – but I really cannot complain because it is just getting really “real” feeling – excitement and nervousness are taking over, which balances out everything else.
I am running about once a week now (3 to 4 miles) but keeping up with walks (~3 to 4 miles a day) and that’s been good!
Last week, I took the infamous Glucose Tolerance Test – and you know, I think I worked it up so much in my head about how terrible it’d be that it really was not that bad. Still, I was a little nervous about the results, since Diabetes does run in my family, but my fears were thwarted on Tuesday at my check-up appointment when the midwife let me know that everything was A-OK in my recent tests!
Speaking of check-ups, now that we’re officially in that last trimester, the number of appointments will be increasing. Until this point, it was 1x/month – now it’ll be about every other week.
So, until the next bumpdate…
