Someone said the 3rd trimester should be called the worry trimester and I totally agree!
The first trimester you’re too sick and weak to worry much. All you can think about is getting through that stage to the ‘blossoming’ months ahead! Once you get past that stage and move into the second trimester, you start to relax abit and feel more like yourself. Heck, you can even do some exercise and have fun a bit and yes, you glow! But then the 3rd trimester comes and then you have to take note of baby movements! And worry when there’s no movement or reduced movement for a day or so!
This week, tuesday to be exact, two people I know gave birth! (or rather their wives did…:)). Congrats to both families! The first who is a colleague of mine at work was yesterday afternoon but we were informed today and the other was in the wee hours today! His a friend of mine in Leeds as well.
And we hit the 3rd trimester!!
Seems like just yesterday I found our I was pregnant, but here we are, week 28 and 12 more to go… Still feels like a life time away but hey, we’re making progress… I’m just thankful to God everything is going to plan and I still have my energy so far. I don’t feel as sick and tired as I did in the early days, heck I still went for an aqua fitness yesterday and slept like a log!
Week 27 Yippeeee!!!
Funny enough nothing major has really happened this week. Can’t wait to get to the 28 week point so I can proudly say I’m in my third trimester! So got a week to get there!
My little one has definitely been getting more active though, I can tell you that! And there I was thinking she’s quiet like me, boy was I wrong! She’s more like her daddy!! And she’s also starting to recognise her dad’s voice as well! All he has to know is talk to her and she gets all excited and does somersaults! I kid you not! Quite annoying though considering she doesn’t do that for me! Hmmmmmm I’m already seeing a pattern here…
So I turned 26 weeks on Sunday and it’s been one hectic day after the other! Heck it’s been soo bad that I’ve got twitching eye brows!!! After much research and analysis I’ve discovered this happens to me when I’m going through stress! Go figure…
My boss is away for a few weeks at work so it seems I suddenly have a lot more work on my hands! Thankfully he’ll be back next week so that should be sorting itself out very soon, thank God!
I had my Glucose Tolerance Test earlier in the week, on Tuesday (a test to check if I have gestation diabetes) and I did something i hate doing, i cried!! Now I understand why some people don’t like hanging around pregnant ladies! I won’t want to hang around Me if I could help it sometimes!
I had a Midwife appointment yesterday and everything went well, thank God. The little one’s heartbeat is beating good and fast and my bump measured 25in from crown to bottom, so I’m measuring just right! Life is good!
